    I couldnít disagree more. Look at our results with Ralls, and without Ralls. Heís our best player, thatís why the club want to keep him. Heís a 7 out of 10 most weeks

    I agree, I'll be disappointed if we lose Joe - Mr Consistency.

    with regard to average wages I happen to know that when he was Captain Darren Purse was on £26K a week and he was the highest paid footballer in the club. That equates to about £37K today.
    Since then we have had the banking collapse and various other things. I think that todays average will be not much higher than it was then, and probably lower in purchasing power.
    And if it's true to this club it will probably be true for many others too.
    Plus paying over the odds could get a club into a fight over the financial limitations today.

    I know lads in my line of work that swap companies for an extra quid an hour.

    People try to point out the big money in football and say the extra 2k a week he may get elsewhere shouldn't matter when they earn such big money already, but you can't blame them for doing so, because in a like for like scenario most of us would be gone.
    Totally agree a refresh, for both the club and player all need to to move on from all the past players wages and ways of playing if we are to develop a new style built around young modern players and tactics .

    Keeping someone on high wages for being Mr Consistency doesn't make commercial sense

    Everyone can be replaced .

    I like Ralls but if weíre truly looking to change the way we play, he should be one of many to leave. Fresh start for all please.

    I hope he stays, but only if it can be done within the new wage structure

    Footballers are essentially contractors, and like many contractors, are rewarded based on performance. I hope that he can squeeze as much as possible, wherever he ends up. Good luck Joe.

    Spoken like a true statistician... I love it.

    I figure that's got to be the mean. Massive wages of clubs that have been recently relegated would hugely inflate the mean (100k a week for Mitrovic for example); I bet the median would be a good deal less than 29k as every club that hasn't got parachute payments is reigning in the spending.

    I would be amazed if 29k per week is the mean wage in the division

    That's what I was thinking.
