The West Ham team payroll
Saw something online earlier about how much Carlos Sanchez is earning and did a quick google to see it it's true, found this website - now I've no idea how reliable it is, but I imagine it's not too far from the truther...shocking how much we're wasting on players making very little, if any contribution.

Not accusing anyone in particular. We're all wrong about players from time to time. But I just think there's been a collective attitude from the support that blindly applauds the club for just spending loads of money, without even a consideration whether it's well spent or not. Especially places like this where there's outright hostility to views outside of the echo chamber.

Re: The West Ham team payroll

I said Carroll and Hernandez were poor signings Carroll in particular, have to admit didn’t know Hernandez was as bad as he is just thought he was a bad signing and didn’t suit the way we played
I’d never seen Yarmolenko play so had no real opinion on him

>>> How much influence do fans have over a player signing though?

Hard to say. There's been some suggestion they leak potential signings to look for the fan reaction. It's absurd really - the fans should have no influence imo, but I think it's undeniable that they do have some.

More generally the support has given the indication they want a lot of money spent on big names for a short term hit. And that's what the club has tried to do. Sullivan's 'buying for now' policy.

I would like to see what would happen if the support decided to actually question this. And try to pressure the owners to think more long-term and actually invest in the future.

true, and there were quite a few happy wilshere was joining, even though the few gooners I knew said he was too much of a risk for the money he wanted (the exact same thing they said when we signed ljungberg)

Re: The West Ham team payroll
Unreliable figures, yes, but probably not far off - they're a useful starter for discussion. Eg the £140k mark for Hernandez has been all over the media for a long time. Some signings you get specific reports of the wage - the £67k for Diop for example. But then some wages get described exactly and some are ballpark figures after appearance fees etc. They're broadly in the right area imo. I've heard a number of times that Anderson is our top earner though.

Many fees that we hear about in the media we also can't be sure of for example. The famous one is the Savio deal which the club sold as a £9m marquee signing but later admitted it was £3m plus a load of potential add-ons as the club was essentially broke at the time.

It's the nature of talking about the club - we have to weigh up the speculation about these things or else there'd be nothing to talk about!

Re: The West Ham team payroll
I expect the figures are purely based on speculation and made up where there is no info.

In other words, unreliable.

Can't believe Sanchez has been highlighted considering there is a midfielder earning twice his salary also on the long term injury list.

Sanchez might have got a few more games this season if he was fit and might have settled into the team for all we know. It's hard to judge.

Of course they don't have to buy these players - I'm not defending the decision-making at the club. I've criticised it all along. It does bug me that afaik most of the support go along with it, even encourage it.

I think, with respect, the support needs to think a bit more about what they really want from the club. They can't just clap along with the mistakes and then blame the club later - well, they can and they do, but in that case you kind of deserve what you end up with.

Re: The West Ham team payroll
alex, they don't have to sign work shy, injury prone players, no one wants them to. they sanction these ridiculous contracts, no one else and no one will convince me watford is a more desirable destination to us, even if we are owned by the cowboys we have

SurfaceAgentX2Zero 2:06 Mon Apr 1
Re: The West Ham team payroll
Sanchez is on a bog standard salary for us, according to that. Complain about buying him by all means, but not about his salary in particular.

Wilshere is the one that stands out as most appalling - no mitigating factor at all.Closely followed by the entirely useless Perez.

Re: The West Ham team payroll
I didn't see many supporters criticising the Carroll signing at the time.



Well I was one... he had a iffy injury record before he signed... me and KIA had plenty of words on here about it...

Think we will see alot of high earners moved on this summer.

Alex V 1:39 Mon Apr 1
Re: The West Ham team payroll
I didn't see many supporters criticising the Carroll signing at the time. Nor Hernandez, Yarmolenko etc.

Of course if Fabianski and Rice were the top earners the reaction to a list like this would be different. But they're not - the top earners are expensive mercenary signings who haven't delivered. It doesn't take a genius to see that something has gone very wrong.

At some point the support have to realise that the road the club has gone down, which they have encouraged and supported, has led to what may be perceived as a mess that is hard to remedy. No fan is complicit in such poor decision making, but I wish some supporters would be a little more aware of the implications of the decisions they crave.

Re: The West Ham team payroll
no get it right contrary mary, people don't mind players who contribute earning decent money. a non football fan could have told the cunts that wilshere was a disastrous signing. they've learned nothing from the carroll project, and will continue handcuffing the club to piss takers because they have little idea what they're doing

Alex V 1:03 Mon Apr 1
Re: The West Ham team payroll
There often seems to be these contradictory opinions from the support that they constantly egg the club on to get big signings in, yet are appalled at the amounts that sort of player gets paid. We can't have it both ways, because one is the consequence of the other.

Re: The West Ham team payroll
Amazing when you look at the other teams in the EPL at what they are paying their players…. Galling as hell when you think for the same price we are paying Wilshire and Carroll a week we could have Sane, Jesus, laporte, Lingard, rashford, Barkley, Azpilicueta, Loftus-Cheek, Eriksen, Trippier, Vertonghen, Alli, Mane, Wiljnaldum, Alexander-Arnold, Robertson, Sigurdsson, Maguire, Chilwell, Maddison and anyone from the WHOLE of the Wolverhampton Wanders, Watford Town and Bournemouth squads… fucking amazing stuff….

Re: The West Ham team payroll
It is shambolic. Like the OP said, people who contribute the least are rewarded the most.

No wonder we are always in a mess.
