I’m suggesting he has NO details on ANY of our player’s wages. Therefore £80,000 is an uneducated guess. Therefore it’s nonsense.


Sorry. I'm with you now.

I don't know if Paul2812 does know any individual salary details, but from previous posts, he does appear to have an insight. It is therefore entirely possible that he will know that there is £80k left on the cap.
Re: Jake Clifford : Sun Sep 18, 2022 12:36 pm  
It’s quite feasible that a club employee could overhear small talk and a figure of ‘only 80k left’ on the cap, and tell friends. This is much more likely than being privy to every player’s wages.

I guess Dufty must be our second marquee player, so there’s no getting around the 80k issue without releasing someone. I’ve always been a Ratchford fan but now even I am starting to question his retention if it’s not for a starting spot each week. Or do we get a big cap discount for his long service?

Anyway, pretty sure it won’t be Clifford who solves the half back problem. The video interview with his wife makes me realise it’s not going to work out over here for them. He won’t be settled.

Get her tucked up in Grappenhall with a back garden overlooking the canal. 10% off at Par Arms & free nursery care & all is sorted.

Maybe he'll use us as a springboard to join a club that'll appear in a GF, a la Blake Austin

Probably says more about the quality of our league now, that an absolutely bog-standard half back like Austin can be part of a GF side.

Saying that, Tyrone Roberts & Dec Patton both managed it with us, I suppose? :lol:

I'm not a club employee. and I don't know anyone that is. I'm not privy to 'every' players wages, but I do have knowledge of some salary cap details when I'm told about them. Eg, I know who was the highest paid prop at the club is this season, which lead to another prop being very vocal about his displeasure in the dressing room. I also know his wage increases by £10k each season while he's contracted.

As for me knowing we have £80k left in the pot for next season prior to reducing costs, it's what I've been told. If you choose to not believe me that's your prerogative. This is an internet forum, and is designed for opinions. I take no offence from people not believing or disagreeing with me, and the same should be said for the people that disagree when they read things I sometimes post. Use the mute button if necessary.

I am privy to quite a lot that happens at the club, and if you knew the person(s) I know, you'd understand why. I'm careful about what I do and don't post, as some info is WAY too sensitive for this board. Eg, I posted something the other day on the thread about how long DP will last next season, and then quickly deleted it when I realised I was guilty of over-sharing some very sensitive info at the top of the club !

I think you misunderstood me, Paul. I wasn't questioning you, I was backing you up as others were suggesting it was BS. It seemed quite feasible to me that you could hear such a thing. I just guessed you heard it from a club employee you knew.

It intrigues me that your info isn't from a club employee. I can only assume you hear it from the owner. That maybe you're a friend of his? I think you are... Gary Barlow? No, that's far too ridiculous. You're Mark Owen aren't you?

All a bit sad really. Hope you find something a bit more useful to do.
