Thread: Kylian Mbappé

  1. #151
    Anecdotal evidence suggests the arrival of the ‘new wave’ of foreign players from the 1978-79 season led to wage inflation.

    Foreign professionals had effectively been banned from the English game between 1931 and 1978.

    The only foreigners allowed were either amateurs (on low or no pay), students, those with familial Commonwealth ties, POWs or those who arrived for other reasons (eg: non-football work) and achieved resident status after two years.

    But in 1978 the ban was lifted, forced by the EC. And that led to a season (and more) of star arrivals including Ossie Ardiles, Ricky Villa, Ivan Golac, Kaz Deyna and many others.

    ‘I honestly don’t remember how much we were paid that first season at Tottenham,’ Ardiles. ‘Certainly it was more than the average [of around £17,000 per year] at the time but I don’t remember how much.

    I do remember that it led to other Spurs players asking for more, and getting rises, because we [Ardiles and Villa] were the best paid and they wanted more money.

    Correct the doubters and Edward's.

    I just like holding people to account on their mental limitations of the club and the misleading impressions they give of other clubs.

    Ok enough is enough.......You've all got me to a point where I'm thinking theres a real chance he might be a summer transfer. Even worse I'll be Gutted when he goes to Spain...

    (forgot my customer lol) lol

    I just cannot see FSG paying a young newbie to the squad 100 to 150 grand a WEEK MORE than the top earners are on...
