I've not seen RM's wage slips, or Barnes/McAteers BUT, from stuff I've heard.
> RM was on just over 100k a year
> At the same time we sacked RM I think we made a fair few admin/behind the scenes staff unemployed too? (Sure their were redundancies at the club) which probably helped towards that reported 1 mil figure above, plus player wage budget cuts (I've no idea if the 1mil figure is true like)
> Barnes/McAteer combined were on less than RM so it obviously did save some money wage wise but as Matt34 points out, attendances dropped.
> Les is on more than Barnes but less than RM
Don't want to claim it all to be fact as I haven't seen wage slips or anything. Some of it is bits I've heard which tbf may be wrong, some of it is just educated guess.
However back on topic I agree with what bigmart said.
