    The most depressing is when you compare it to Balotelli, atleast the others are pretty much at the top of their game.

    Checked this out earlier today.

    Not sure if I felt sad, angry or just downright bewildered by it all.

    I should imagine that Johnson drinks more in one night than my weekly pension is worth.

    When theres various threads on here containing plenty of stories of people struggling to afford the luxury (and thats what its now become!) of supporting the football club they love and in many cases have loved for decades...how depressing is this.

    Go any jobs like yours going Edgo, I'd only have to work for a month and then retire very comfortably

    How long would it take a top footballer to earn your salary

    By playing football a couple of hours.
    By doing my job about 6 weeks.

    And lest we forget - Kevin Doyle is earning circa £150,000 per month (£1,800,000 per year)!

    Not that I'm condoning it but they've just stated on Capital Yorkshire --- "do people want to buy replica tops with your name plastered over it?" or "do thousands turn up to a football match to watch you (hopefully) score the goals that help your team win matches/trophies?" If not then stop complaining about things that you're just jealous about. Nobody would do these things just for the love of it if they were talented enough to earn these kind of salaries

    Or stop going to watch, stop paying your Sky Subscription - opt out, I still love Wolves but football in general has gone for me I'm afraid.

    This is a veiled thread for people to either joke or brag about how much they'd like you to think they earn.

    Its not difficult to back calculate so why not just say what you earn.

    Lets get our dicks out and see whos got the biggest.

    The maths don't add up if you work it out yourself.

    Unless they're just counting playing time maybe?

    Still obscene though.. Ok I'm jealous!
