Thread: Joe Ralls turned down contract extension?

I know this information directly through his brother.

    I know this is a sample size of just one but I canít believe that it is totally misrepresentative.
    Think you're right on that average, if someone is on 35k that's madness at this level and explains why so many clubs are in trouble , I think a big wages levelling out exercise is upon most clubs, if not they are going bust .

    Liam Moore is supposedly on that at Reading

    Despite a few misgivings about his injury record in recent seasons, I like Joe Ralls and want him to stay at the club, but in what universe is £12k a week an unacceptable pay offer? Until I qualified for the state pension in February, that was about 95 per cent of my income for a year, so, sorry, but I have little sympathy for anyone who turns down a wage the huge majority of us could only dream about.

    The likelihood is that if he was happy with the offer he would have signed by now. Even if another club were to offer £1k a week more then thatís another £150k over a 3 yr deal, which anyone would be crazy to turn down.

    My feeling is that he has been offered more elsewhere and is waiting to see if we can match that offer before the contact expiry.

    He is good, but not great. Although he has been a fine servant to the City, they should get rid of him. We can find better elsewhere for less money.

    like who?

    Re: Joe Ralls turned down contract extension?

    He's a good quality player at this level

    Good protective cover on the pitch for the more creative

    I would like to see him stay

    But we can't afford a high wage bill so if he goes that's the way it is

    I’d seriously consider turning an extra £150k over three years down if I’d been offered in the region of £1.8 million over the same period by someone else - my point being, is there so much need to go chasing the money when you’re a millionaire a few times over?

    Maybe it wasn't money could be the managers vision going forward, I know Rallsy loved playing for NW.

    My thoughts too.

    Perhaps you were asking a genuine question, in which case, I would say that is the job of our professional scouts.
    Cast the net further afield, I'm sure there's some really decent midfielders available abroad.

    while 150 K isn't to be sniffed at for us mere mortals, its about 3 months money for that type of contract, spread over the 3 years, its a extra months money per year, surely wouldn't be a deciding factor when you are earning over £50 K a month ? ? ?

    People seem to have a mental 'reset' when discussing footballers' wages, they've become so inflated in recent years. Imagine looking at your 'payslip' and seeing "£50,000" in gross pay, every single month !

    what if someone else is offering him 18k a week? I don't think I'd turn that down easily

    Clearly, there’s a point for every one where you have to think of the money you’re being offered, but, if I were earning £12k a week and my family and I were happy with our lives, 18k wouldn’t be enough for me to automatically up sticks - an annual income of almost £600k, apparently, puts someone in the top 0.1 of the country salary wise.

    Re: Joe Ralls turned down contract extension?

    I'm not even going to mention how much he actually receives out of £12K a week....

  17. #37

    Re: Joe Ralls turned down contract extension?

    12K is decent money, especially for just an okay player.

    We talk about championship wages, if it wasn't for Morison's cavalry coming in and turning our season round, thus boosting Ralls and his status, we would be playing League One and paying him league one wages.

    The only reason that Ralls has been offered more by the club is because he is one of our better players and we know what we can expect from him.
    If he leaves then we need to replace him with somebody, even if it is a player with good credentials, it is still a risk.

    That said, if Ralls is holding the club to ransom let him go I say. Sign or feck off!

    You my not but most would happily move for an extra £312k a year.

    For a championship player that would be massive. Ignoring bonuses, signing on fees and the possibility that this club would probably be in a better position to challenge.

    All made up numbers atm to be fair, but as said above by someone else, if he were staying I'd have thought it would be done by now.

    I agree, but in 6-7 years heíll probably revert to being a mere mortal when retiring from football. Itís no surprise that footballers squeeze every penny they can, when they can.

    In about 5 years time, Ralls will be earning 0 a week. So yes, Iíd say £150k is important. This is his last big contract. The club has treated player after player like crap recently. If they threat Whitts like they did, theyíll treat anyone like dirt. It is no surprise Joe seems to be looking after number one.
