Will the recession hit football and players salaries?

My first comment is I really do hope so.

Don't get me wrong, I don't want any clubs to close, football is way to important and is a large part of our lives.

Ask yourself this; should a person be paid £90,000 per week?

You might answer that a company director should (although not from the banking sector), but a footballer?

Although you need to be skilled, or talented to play in the top flight of football, I consider a plumber to be very skilled and though they're expensive they aren't as expensive as a football player.

Why doesn't the SFA or the FA step in and put a cap on players wages?

This debate will rumble on but I will always hold the opinion that these salaries are ridiculous!

well if any football clubs have ongoing sponsorship deals with banks which are receiving public funds, then none of that money should go in overinflated salaries.

I'm with you on this one.
