United - What Have You Started?

United - What Have You Started?

After agreeing to make Wayne Rooney unbelievably rich and pandering to his every whim, you have to ask whether Manchester United have opened a can of worms that could cost them dearly.

Evra and O`Shea look set to benefit from new deals, with huge pay increases and now the tabloids are full of rumours that infer several other big name stars are ready to jump on the wanting more bandwagon.

According to the tabloid press Rio Ferdinand, Dimitar Berbatov and Darren Fletcher are all keen to see what they can secure on top of their current deals whilst one of the red-tops implies that Nemanja Vidic, who only signed a new deal a matter of months ago, might also want his share of any pot available.

Like I said - what have we started here?

Your club is a financial black hole. One day soon you'll feel the effects of what your current owners are/have doing/done. How on earth your club can pay its wages at the moment is unbelievable let alone now that Wayne bent your lot over and took what little dignity you had left. Oh well, every great empire must fall eventually. Cant come soon enough in my eyes.

A worry when paying OShea such an amount _ worry for your club, but more so, worry for the game. O Shea !!!!

Although paying "average" players huge wages on paper looks risky you can easily afford to assuming you're not paying off the Glaziers debts indefinitely...

Mex_yiddo despite the wage bill we still have been making significant profits every season. Windlespur you make O'shea to be the worst defender in the league when he is very similar to your very own Corluka (if not better than him), though the wage doesn't reflect the talent. Berby may of earned himself a new contract but if he thinks he should get a pay rise then he should take a look at himself. Fletcher as earned himself a pay rise but within reason of course, he really has improved and become one of the best in his position. I think Ferdinand plays for more than money and will accept whatever is passed his way (assumming its not lower than what his already earning). As for Vidic, if he wanted big money he could've went to Madrid so I doubt he's about to throw a paddy about how much his earning. Any player who moans about what their earning has got some serious nerve. I really don't agree with how much Rooney is getting but what can you do?

It doesn't matter what we fans think the players are worth Famous - it's all about what the walking egos that ocassionally kick a ball think, and if they see a woefully short of form player like Rooney getting a huge pay increase they're going to want a piece, it's inevitable. Expecat a tantrum or three and one or two of your less important players to be shown the door before this all settles down. Can of worms? More like Pandora's box mate!

Anybody who pays the exorbitant sums to go to watch these morons needs their bumps felt. They are laughing at you, while they whoop it up in nightclubs, exclusive resorts and of course, Dubai. They'll get richer and more contemptuous, and you, Mr. Averagewageearner, will be treated as the gift that keeps on giving. Think of the Tom and Jerry cartoon, and the thought balloon of an ass braying. That's you, that is. Pip pip.

Famous No7 - I agree that both Corluka & O'Shea are siilarly very average (hence Corluka played very little this year). What you don't seem to grasp is that O'Shea is paid significantly more, so your argument is ?????? So the new wage for O'Shea does not reflect the talent. Correct.
