  1. The question is: how much did Sunderland pay for Fletcher? I know Sunderland are desperate for a striker and they do have Martin O’Neill so I’m sure they overpaid for him.

    1. Supposedly it’s between £12m to £15m, which is a LOT of money for a good 25-year-old striker but he will definitely score goals this season.

      1. Wow, I didn’t know he was 25. For some reason, I thought he was 29 going on 30. I have no idea why. British transfer and only 25 years old, I’ll say it’s fair price; S. Fletcher just need to score half of many as Andy Carroll 😉

  2. Wondering how the tv money is split for the EPL? whatever the contract, it is then split 20 times each team gets same share? i would love to see the books on some of these teams QPR how will they ever get a return on money invested.small stadium not getting to Europe anytime soon no huge transfers going out.Sunderland payed to much for Fletcher but maybe that is the going price for an average striker at some point the monopoly money has to run out.

    1. For sure. At some point it’s all going to have to come down. Teams are just going to have to start saying no to massive transfer fees, but right now nobody wants to be the team that blinks and misses out. Wenger seems to be the only top tier manager out there right now willing to spend low and sell big.

    2. If you google, premier league tv, you will find your answer, the difference between top and bottom clubs is marginal. Which is a lot fairer than say la liga 140m E to Barca and RM, 46m E for 3rd and 13m for bottom club.

          thanks for the link.have you ever seen a story that broke out the financing of any EPL club? Tv money,sponsors,transfers,ticket sales.a Fulham or Swansea are more like to make a profit then Chelsea or Man Utd because their salaries are so low.
