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.

‘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.

Squad Update ahead of Manchester Derb

Owen_Hargreaves_7Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed Owen Hargreaves will be kept away for at least five weeks because of the hamstring injury he sustained against Wolverhampton on Saturday.

Appearing for the first time since September 2008, Hargreaves could not survive more than just 5 minutes indicating that he picked up a hamstring injury and was replaced by Bebe. The manager has stated that the midfielder would not be able to make it until five weeks.

Ferguson stated:

“We were at the stage where we knew Owen’s knee was okay,” Ferguson told Key 103. “His training performances for eight or nine days previously had been terrific. He had done really well, which is why we took the chance. But maybe the tension in the build-up for the lad was too much and he suffered because of it.”

The manager was sure of the fact that Hargreaves would not be able to play any part against Manchester City, but the injury of veteran Ryan Giggs was certainly a major set-back for him. Giggs who could be very vital against Manchester City also sustained a hamstring injury, confirming this the manager told that he’s certainly out of the derby.

However according to ESPN.com, Luis Nani is fit, as for City, Balotelli is suspended and Adebayor sustained a calf injury while Kalarov has recovered and has a chance to return for the derby.
