Sounds a silly question really, being able to cope with just a quarter of a million pounds in your weekly pay packet.

That would earn you a million a month which, if my maths serves me correctly, works out at £12 million per annum .

Who on earth can make that sort of money.?

I will tell you. Wayne Rooney, Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

This week Arsenal stars are moaning they only earn £140,000 a week for doing the same job.

They are now searching out employers who will stump up another £100,000 to put them on a level playing field with their counterparts at Manchester United.

I have two points to make about this.

How can football be classed as a working man’s game when skilled tradespeople do well to earn £30,000 a year?

How can the atmosphere in a dressing room be anything other than toxic when players know their colleagues are earning a lot more than they are?

Premier League football worries me.

Where has the pride gone? Why can’t players talk to supporters?

I have the answer.

If you want to belong to a club which values its supporters head down to the ‘depths’ of non-League football.

There you will find the true meaning of football.

In fact pop over to Sincil Bank, the home of Lincoln City and you will see what football in the Community is all about.
