    Default Players on £25k a week

    http://www.nottinghampost.com/Fawaz-...ail/story.html

    "Who picked those players? Stuart Pearce and, I think, Paul Faulkner was involved later on. Pearce is the one who picked Assombalonga, he is the one who picked Antonio. Mancienne, we got him. Tesche, we got him. All these players – the wages are too high. I am not the one who agreed these wages. The chief executive was there. The manager picked the players. We have many players on £25k wages, we have many players who we pay too much for them."

    “That is why we have an embargo. If we worked on a tight budget and did not pay this much, we would not have an embargo. But if you want to get to the Premier League, you have to spend money."


    I thought this might have slipped under the radar a bit. All the talk regarding wages has been conjecture up to this point, but this is from the horses mouth. I suppose it's easier to see why Fawaz has been getting his knickers in a twist when we're haemorrhaging this much cash

    Does anyone really believe that Fawaz didn't sanction the salaries?

    Who knows. There's always been a bit of a 'blank chequebook' feel to the pre-embargo spending

    I'm not having it Tropix, Fawaz strikes me as a complete control freak which is probably why Paul Faulkner left. Blaming a man who didn't even work for him doesn't exactly enhance his credibility either.

    This is very poor form from Fawaz.

    I honestly think he's naive enough to say 'get the players you need, just get me to the Premier League', without realising that he's rolling the dice and putting his chips all on one number. It shows that Pearce was going all in for promotion this season though, I don't think we can doubt that anymore

    I hate the fact the wages and fee's are not Fawaz fault, Surely you won't say to someone " Buy me a 3 bedroom house" then blame them for spending too much.

    The embargo isn't down to Pearce or Faulkner, when will Fawaz learn that?!

    Pointing the blame in the direction of Faulkner for the spending is mad.


    This comes moments after Jenas said on Radio Notts that Fawaz had brought him in.

    Fawaz really comes across as a bit of a spoilt baby a lot of the time.

    Announcing what players are earning what money is definitely going to help team spirit...

    Are the Top earners of the above fee, that's excluding Abdoun.
    There is absolutely no way that Dexter Blackstock earns £25,000 per week. None. Zero. Nada.

    Fair point. My point stands though.

    Sometimes I wish Fawaz had been able to sign all the sub standard Kuwaiti players he brought over when we were first taken over. They would've been terrible and got us relegated but he would've still blamed somebody else.

    What the shuddering blasted HECK is anyone thinking, giving a single one of our players £25k per week?

    Fawaz has just poisoned the well. Once again whilst trying to make himself look shiny. Now when a player misses on open goal, he's a £25k per week waste of space. A couple of bad games and they'll all be on £25k a week as far as the fans are concerned.

    The man needs to shut the fuck up, stay shut up and never, ever stop shutting the fuck up, and he needs to do it now. Dictate what you want to say, email it to the club and have someone there (I'll do it if you like) who sands off the angles, then releases perfect spheres of noncommital, innofensive pep about the club into the aether.

    Have you been to the Museum of Communism in Prague? It's in the shopping centre, near the McDonald's. Boy, did we ever laugh!
