A comparison of Premier League megabucks player wages compare to yours

EPL Club Debts

How does £100,000-a-week sound to you? Like a dream? Like you’ve won the lottery? I bet it does. To the likes of Luis Suarez and Theo Walcott, this is a reality and something that happens every single week as part of their job! Lucky so and so’s! This interactive infographic compiled by Clear Debt shows you the amount of money that Premier League clubs are paying their top stars, and just how much debt they’re in – often as a direct consequence.

In recent years the digital world has been filled with infographics, new and innovative marketing tools that put a unique twist on traditional content. After all, why spend so long working on an ingenious newspaper campaign only to read the odd word between your chips and gravy outside the ground on match day? Tablet computers and smartphones have opened up a whole new world for marketing, allowing football fans covering endless motorway miles following their club each week to access the content anytime, anywhere.

Clubs such as Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City are known the world over as being some of Britain’s top clubs, even in Europe in many cases, but this doesn’t necessarily mean they’re on stable ground in terms of their bank accounts. Sure, they might be owned by millionaires and billionaires, but it’s always interesting to see how buying and paying the top players in the world affects success both on and off the pitch.

Manchester United, for instance, are owned by the Glazer family and last summer went out and spent £24million on Robin van Persie, a signing which significantly influenced their Premier League title winning season. However, the club remain £366million in debt!

As youngsters stood on the terraces, we always dream of being out there, scoring the winning goal and earning thousands of pounds each week. For the majority of us, however, this dream doesn’t become reality and we’re left wondering what could’ve been the next time we hear about Wayne Rooney’s latest pay rise.

With this cool infographic, you can actually compare yourself to the game’s top players to see how your salary compares, how much they earn just while you’re looking at the page (it’ll make you sick trust me) and how often they earn your salary. It’s a great way for all fans to see their club in a whole new way – we know how well they do on the pitch each week, find out how they’re getting on off it and how you compare to your heroes. Then, see how your mates get on by sharing it on Twitter or Facebook.

Andy Gray sacked by Sky Sports as star analyst pays the price for sexist tirades

Andy Gray has been sacked by Sky Sports over his string of sexist outbursts.

The TV pundit was suspended after his controversial comments aimed at female assistant referee Sian Massey.

But the emergence of older footage – in which he directed a lewd comment at fellow Sky Sports presenter Charlotte Jackson – has forced them to take decisive action.

article-1350427-0CE756C3000005DC-142_634x482

The leaked film, again featuring fellow shamed colleague Richard Keys, show the pundit asking Jackson to tuck a microphone pack down his trousers.

Gray, he suggestively asks Jackson: ‘Charlotte, can you tuck this [microphone pack] down here for me love… Tuck this down here.’

A Sky statement read: ‘Sky Sports has terminated its contract with Andy Gray. The decision which is effective immediately was made in response to new evidence of unacceptable and offensive behaviour.

‘The new evidence relating to an off-air incident that took place in December 2010 came to light after Andy Gray had already been subjected to disciplinary action for his comments of 22 January 2011.’

Sky Sports managing director Barney Francis added: ‘Andy Gray’s contract has been terminated for unacceptable behaviour.  After issuing a warning yesterday we have no hesitation in taking this action after becoming aware of new information today.’

On Saturday, Gray was caught criticising Massey off-air in two separate incidents and he has now paid the price with his lucrative £1.7million-a-year job.

It has also emerged that Massey has now been withdrawn from her role as assistant referee in Tuesday night’s League Two match between Crewe and Bradford.

A statement from Mike Riley, the general manager of Professional Game Match Officials, read: ‘PGMO and Sian believe that with any football match the focus should not be on the officials but on the players and the game itself.  That is only fair to those connected with the clubs and their supporters.

KEYS: ‘Somebody better get down there and explain offside to her.’
GRAY: Can you believe that? Women don’t know the offside rule.
KEYS: ‘Course they don’t.
GRAY: Why is there a female linesman? Somebody’s ****ed up big.
KEYS: I guarantee there will be a big one today. Kenny (Dalglish) will go potty. This is not the first time. Didn’t we have one before? Wendy Toms?
GRAY: She was ****ing hopeless as well.
KEYS: Did you hear charming Karren Brady complaining about sexism?

‘Joga Bonito’ and the Beautiful Game: Hooliganism Is Here To Stay

Firms, football hooliganism and middle-aged flab a dying art? Think again!

Ali Sami Yen Stadium

Football hooliganism has no specific legal definition. The term was created by the media, the tabloid press in particular, in the mid-1960s. Since then, they have been extremely flexible and indeterminate in ascribing the “hooligan” label to different incidents. The perpetuation of football hooliganism can be linked to the high level of drama, aggression and petit mal that overcomes players in the 90 minutes of rigid warfare on the football field.
