If the following image is even remotely accurate, who would you want off the wage bill?
Freeing up the wage budget obviously also helps how competitive the salary is that we can offer a top player (e.g. another Suarez) to come to the club.
With that in mind, I'd like to see:
Henderson - 70k
Downing - 90k
Carragher (to retire at the end of the season) - 85k
Cole - 90k
Doni - 50k
Wilson - 20k
Carroll if he doesn't sign for West Ham permanently - ~ 80k mark.
Come off the wage bill, with 80+90+85+70+50+20 looking at close to 400k off the wage bill (not including Carroll)
Is there any other players you'd actually not want to leave that I've said, or any others we can add to this list? With the Gerrard/Alonso stories this morning, it could equally also mean another 120k off the wage bill, but of course Gerrard is worth far more than freeing up our wage bill.
