Have a laugh. Today's footballers are so pig ignorant because the over paid wages they get makes them think their better then anyone else. Ever noticed on Sky sports when fans are waiting for the players to get of the team coach how the arrogant pigs just walk by with their silly fucking head phones in and act as if the fans don't matter.

I am calm I don't feel the need to start posting my anger on here like I have done in the past because I've learnt big time life's to short to get into conflict and all that shit.

I get why you think I'm angry,but I'm just a person who does swear quite a lot especially when it comes to top flight footballers because in all honesty I really don't like top flight footballers and any lower league footballers who feel it's ok to ignore the most important people in the game - The Fans.

Example - there was a video on YouTube once of the Borehamwood manager Luke Garrard wishing all the wood fans a merry Christmas and happy New year and even when I've watched the Borehamwood players interview after the game they've even given fans praise saying how great the support has been ECT. Now you tell me what top flight manager or footballer would take a few moments to do a video like that for their fans ?

Autographs - when you see the fans standing by the team coach holding out their programmes asking for autographs from players in the premier league or holding their phones and wanting a picture,the player just walks by in his own world or if the player does agree to have a photo taken with the fan/s, the player will just look utter miserable which gives me the opnion of, you arrogant bastard.

League 2 players aren't on that much though. The disparity between the Premier League/Championship and the rest is enormous.

Well said. I read a few weeks back last season Scumere aka Tranmere, were paying a player over £1,000 a week which no doubt was Norwood.

Morecambe, who are widely accepted as having the lowest wage bill in the league, paid wages of £1.93mil two seasons ago, with their players' average weekly wage being given as a touch under £1k.

Obviously your youth players like Smith and Fernandez, and those who have come up a few levels like Cowley will not be on huge amounts initially, but guys like Cuthbert and Guthrie will bring that average up a fair old whack.

When you think the average salary in the UK is about £28.5k, to be paid at least twice that for most players in the League, to play football, and in reality be pretty average in their field as there are three whole divisions full of players above them in this country alone, it ain't at all bad.

Edit: During the same period, Luton averaged about £3k per week in player wages, whilst your more middle-of-the-road clubs like Carlisle and Crewe averaged about £1.5k per week on player wages.

I don't earn anything like a footballer but my contract is permanent, I can still do my job if I need an operation, and I don't need to think about packing in because I'm 33 now.

Given that, I think what our players are paid is probably about right.

Alexis Sanchez on the other hand should be set for life before he even kicked a ball this season.

Bit of a straw man - I never said it was bad. I said it's not loads and pales into insignificance compared to the Premier League and Championship. There'll be fans in the 50k-100k pa bracket, but none earning that per week.

Edit: I should have said 'not on that much in footballing terms', but thought it was obvious what I meant.

For most I would say so. There will be some higher, particularly those on league one contracts relegated into league two.

I would bet many of the younger ones and those we plucked from non league will be on a veritable pittance for their first contract, plus appearance and win bonuses and a sizeable guaranteed increase if they're kept into season 2.

I'd suggest £500 PW basic would be generous for a basic 1st pro contract with Stevenage.

But I haven't really got a clue.
