I remember when Martin Allen was subbed by Bonzo for a terrible tackle against Leeds,in the papers it said he was fined a weeks wages,and it was a grand,I thought the world had gone mad.

I remember reading somewhere at the time that Lampard senior was on £70 per week during the early 70’s. This was when the average take home pay for a working man was about £20-ish.

Wasn’t McAvennie on £2k a week when we resigned him from Celtic? I remember my Dad saying at the time that was crazy money!

Re: How much did the player earn back in the late 80s/ early 90s.
At the time I seem to remember a figure of up to 50k a year for the very best players after bonuses - basic probably 20-30k...

I remember it being big news in about 1983 when Bryan Robson was on 750 a week at Man Utd..

They were on Canary Wharf and all that. The suspended ceiling mob too. £100 a day was normal by the late 80s.

Around the 85/86 season, Cottee was on about £500 a week, just like the plasterers and brickies on the terraces.

Pretty sure plasters and brickies werent earning even half that in 86.....

Ludo wasn’t exactly sponsored by Skoda. He and Matty Holmes had sponsored Skodas from the dealership in Goodmayes.

On the outside of the car it said

LUDEK MIKLOSKO DRIVES A SKODA!

Re: How much did the player earn back in the late 80s/ early 90s.
I remember being shocked to hear that Shearer was on £10k a week at Blackburn around ‘92 or ‘93. At the time I thought a decent player was on around a grand or two.
At least then the players didn’t live in gated communities or need bodyguards. They were still blokes who you’d bump into in a pub, more normal.
I hate what Sky money has done to the game.

Late 80s, driving down barking rd to the game, always used to see Ray Stewart driving his sponsored Ford Orion, a far cry from the baby Bentley crew.

I do know for sure that Peter Davenport in 1988 (Manchester United) was on exactly 50k a year before taxes. Not sure about bonuses.

Re: How much did the player earn back in the late 80s/ early 90s.
Yeah, but back in those days players didn't have to play a couple of games a week quite regularly.

Nor did they have to play midweek internationals, or front up for domestic cup games.

Oh hang on .........
