    if City overtake Man Utd financially it makes sense to raise our wage cap and transfer spend.

    What' is the point of having a competitive footballing advantage unless you use it? Man Utd deliberately drove wages and transfer fees up to a level where they had no competition.

    The strategy of over-paying is logical - providing of course you identify the correct targets.

    The problem is Liverpool. They will overtake Utd too, and probably City if they are successful.

    I wouldn't increase his basic wage but maybe give him a goal bonus of £100k per goal, maybe it would focus him on improving his finishing :)

    I saw your wink at the end, but to me that would always be costly and not just monetary terms but pure selfishness.
    You only had to see that ridiculous decision by Jesus to shoot,instead of rolling a simple ball to KDB to really kill the game off.
    Sterling sure is a very marketable commodity,as is KDB.

    The short answer is yes, our wage structure needs to rise with the market. If you have world class players, you have to pay world class wages. We don't get to ignore what others are paying top players just because we're well run. Luckily for us, paying our best players has never been an issue and I'm sure we can figure out a structure that makes sense.

    The structure makes sense, it's just going to have to rise pretty significantly over the next few years if we want to keep everyone.
