Random quote: Kevin Keegan - “I saw an interview where Alan Pardew said he hoped to get some of that £35million. I thought: ‘Alan, you ain’t going to get any of that.’

Reckon Benitez had wage bill up to equivalent of £97m pa and couldn't shift them, hence no signings. That equates to 50 players on £40,000 per week. Sounds plausible do we think.

Might be true.

There will be other staff considerations than players themselves - while some will be buttons, tea-boy etc, you've got the youth set-up, plus coaches, medical staff, scouting staff etc etc.
Almost £2m a week does seem a lot though.

Most of those support posts would've been outside benitez's remit though. The article is a hatchet job and available accounts and common sense suggest it's extremely unlikely there's been a 50% increase since the last accounts were published bearing in mind the departure of some very high earners

Perhaps.
Maybe bonuses payable through getting promotion, plus wage hikes for getting back into the top flight may add up?
£1.9m a-week. Feasible, all considered; if high.

Simon Bird said yesterday that The Mirror wasn't an official club media outlet, so it's a mix of shite and propaganda.

Aye. I never trust what I read these days in the press.

Where did you hear about the signings from Man City? Just as a matter of interest.
