With all that's going on in the world, part of me, as a football fan, is ashamed that those amounts of money are paid to average players.

I’d heard of Max but not May although I did have a great aunt May who was actually born on May 1st.

Free transfer though so cost just over 6.7 million for 3 years.

I’m assuming that figure is per year

Yep.... £20m over 3 years. It’s not hard to see how the odd bad decision at this level leads to a spiral.

Lot of money for a bit part player. I think I can recall him playing against us on one occasion.

I still don't see how Benteke is a Prem player either. Certainly not on that money!!

Was a highly rated bright young thing at Schalke and in Germany generally. As far as I remember he had a falling out with their coach. He thought he was better than he was and ended up being dropped and shipped out to Palace. Which came as a surprise but don't think Bundesliga clubs wanted to touch him with a barge pole because of his attitude.
Think he scored against us a couple of years ago at their place.

Just shows the flaw with the popular 'net spend' arguments on the internet. £0 in transfer fees but taken £20m out of the club for almost no return.

20m over 3 years and played 46 games. Works out at 434k per game.

Just slightly less than our own Robbie Brady who has cost in the region of 23m - 40k per week over 5 years plus reported 13m transfer fee. 74 league appearances at 316k per game. Or Steven Defour at 279k per game.

On the other hand, when contract renewals are coming up, you aren't going to persuade players to re-sign on £3m per year when they know their less-able teammate is on £8m per year.

Your “slightly” is 25% less and 40% less....I hope I can find places doing slight discounts on stuff, cos I’ll be in clover. plus both of those have been heavily impacted by injuries. I know you have a bee in your bonnet about players getting injured, but it is something that happens. Surely a better comparison here would have been Gibson. Or maybe we can find a way of predicting that players are going to get injured. No sign with Robbie ore signing, and no chance of Defour without injuries.

Gibson was in my thoughts on a similar basis

£15m transfer
£1.5m signing on (if they still have them)
£6.5m wages over four years if he doesn't go this summer

Of course there is a chance to claw some of this back if Norwich or anyone else are willing to pay a transfer fee this summer

Norwich have an obligation to buy for 8m should they go up, it should mean we lose very little if anything on him, after they paid 3m loan fee and covered his wages this season. ( allegedly)

there is an awful lot of research in that area and there are likely to be AI offerings to clubs to help manage it - Sean Dyche often refers to models when talking about injured players being ready to return to the matchday squad and such modelling has been used by clubs that have rotated players (particularly those who regularly compete in Europe) for well over a decade now. It is still an imperfect science but great progress has been made

RB did have a couple of groin operations whilst at hull which forced him to miss part of season, so he did carry form for being injured in hindsight that was transparent prior, in terms of injuries we got sold a pup certainly not the stallion that some people made him out to be, fine bone China comprises of a stronger makeup.

I know you have a warped view on life, but you do realise that we signed Brady from Norwich not Hull don't you ?

On leaving Hull he featured in 36 of 38 Premier League games in his 1st season and 23 of the games of the 2nd season in the Championship before joining us in January.

Yes of course the fact still remains he was injured it’s irrelevant who he played for even if he was at Manchester United, the history is important, when you buy a car you don’t just look at the last recent owner you look at everything from when the car left the showroom. That’s my warped perception from buying & selling :roll:
