    true, previous generations would be stunned to see the direction things have taken, 50% of footballers players are pretty obscene if you compare it to a heart surgeon or something which is an important skill. Also the price of football shirts are way over the top, and that money doesn't help the people who made the shirt. no practical value just image value, capitalism plays to the top naturally.

    May his soul rest ip

    Souness made a good point about wage inflation, in his playing days a well paid player was getting around 5 times the industrial wage. Great money for the time obviously, but not so much that you were completely detached from reality. Now its something obscene like 600 times the average wage for the very best.

    I'm not sure if they appreciate just how lucky they are these days, when you had guys from Tommy's era having to sell their medals just to make ends meet.

    Hear what you're saying, we are lucky (lucky to be alive as well, not just human) the disparity in wages does cause a divide that is growing. The rich have got so much materialism and their basic needs met, they don't need to have to pay over for anything etc so you almost get a two tier economy.
