I was just reading a quote from Mignolet's father, when he was discussing Simon's move to us. He said: Obviously, we must have offered him a canny contract to attract him here ahead of PSV, but it got me asking myself what the top earners at the club are on. I think the top 5 earners would be: Bent - £70,000 Cana - £70,000 Jones - £60,000 Cattermole - £50,000 Richardson - £50,000 I could be well off the mark with the above, we'll probably never know, but I think that's a decent enough guess. The next 'bracket' of players such as Gordon, Steed, Anton etc, will probably be on £40,000-£45,000 IMO. If we can tie Gordon down to another contract, he'd be hitting the £55,000-£60,000 mark, IMO. I think it'd frightening to see what the likes of Bardsley and Ringo are on, but that's just the way Premier League wages are these days. Thankfully, we have a board who will only give what we can afford to spend, and when we spend big on players and wages at least we can be safe in the knowledge that we actually have the money to do so.
