'If It's Football, It's Vital'

United - Wages Sensation

It may be heralded as something that may well upset the apple-cart but, if true, we`re amongst those who reckon it is the right way to go.

This morning one of the red-top publications has run an article, labeled as an exclusive, that implies that the Glazer family are set to alter the manner in which salaries are paid at Old Trafford.

The inference being that salary renewals will be made with the salary fixed at a lower level but with a generous incentive scheme.

Now whilst the players will be aghast at the prospect of not picking up the colossal sums that they normally bank each week, colossal sums that anger the majority of the support who slave away week in and week out knowing their annual salary will not even touch what they earn in a week, it has to be the way forward.

Surely, the days of mega-salaries cannot be sustained and the way forward is a more sensible salary augmented by bonuses for doing what they should be doing - winning trophies.

The Glazer family may have upset numerous people since taking over the club but could this be one initiative that meets with the approval of the clubs support?

Any views would be most welcome!

Completely agree. Never had an issue myself with the Glazers, the heights we've reached under them speak for themselves. If this idea is to be put into action it's a strong indicator that they know what they're doing. Players, rightly so, should be payed what they earn, this whole bonus idea with considerably smaller wages will give the players more incentive to put their all into every match. However, any players who don't like the idea are hardly going to stick around especially when the likes of Chelsea, City and Madrid are happy to pay stupid wages for performance's and efforts that don't deserve the payment.

Oh dear. Right idea if implemented across the board, and would have the support of the vast majority of football supporters everywhere. Complete and utter suicidie to any club that unilaterally tries it though. Good luck!
