I'd say it opens a Stewart debate more than it reopening a Goals debate...

You could argue we could spend the wages on the top 3 better. That's about a million a year. If the info is correct. May not be. Madine apparently took a pay cut in the summer.

Kenny Keshi Marv should really be in there. Kenny may be with his new contract.

What we don't know is the structure of the deals. They may be flat rates. In which case, it's hard to disagree re Mads and Stew. Neither is justifying being a top earner. Disagree re Yates though. There's obvious re-sale value that justifies his salary.

True yes. Has his resale value improved since his contract was upgraded? Possibly fallen? Hindsight obviously. And plenty of time for him to come good.

He was allegedly our highest paid player last season. Part of my issue with him. High pay, not much back in return. But we've moved on from that. Gaz has bought into the Critch Revolution.
He said he took a paycut over the summer to stay with Blackpool. So don't think the values here are true.

That's irrelevant, as is his wage compared to other Blackpool players.

Could you replace him for 6k a week? That's the point.
Nope you'd get Jack Shit in the Championship for 6k a week, we where missing out on players 11 years ago with our PL Oystons enforced 10k salary cap to players in this division.

Madine has been brilliant seen he came back and worth every penny whatever that may be.

Stewart the crock on the other hand. 🤔

Oh gawd, I'd completely forgotten about that 10k cap.

Reading the West Brom message board and they're saying if they'd had Madine instead of Hugil they would have won the other night, I bet Hugil's on 3 times what we're paying Gazza.

Interesting, but i'm guessing it's one poster? I don't think Madine would have won them the game.

Gotta be the lowest wage bill in the division, even Peterborough have 4-5 players on 7k + with Clarke-Harris on 9k according to the same, potentially flawed sources.

Just found this though, I think they're just guessing:
Dujon Sterling$10,138$527,17621D/WB/AM REngland
Ryan Wintle$9,179$477,30824DMEngland
Callum Connolly$8,768$455,93623D C, DMEngland
Gary Madine$8,494$441,68830STEngland
Jerry Yates$8,357$434,56424STEngland
Kevin Stewart$8,220$427,44027DMEngland
Chris Maxwell$7,398$384,696
