Players will have to leave.

They have signed king, monaghan, hicks and anderson.

They will be losing Sullivan Rauhihi and Grose but the salaries of those dont match to those coming in.

There will be at least 1 big name departure if wire are going to stay under the cap.



Tricky can you give us a break down of Warrington players earning so we know where they stand rolleyes.gif

That's a reasonable assumption, but again I'm sure no-one knows the true figures.

It reminds me of the Leeds United situation where they were trying to spend to become one of the big boys.... look what happened there in the end!

(I know its not entirely the same situation...... but....)

Or we could just forget all about the cap and sign who we want then pay the fine and lose a couple of points like wigan do. rolleyes.gif

I don't think many Wire fans would be too upset to see Gleeson go. When we signed him from Saints they got Lyon as a replacement, the rest is history. Gleeson seems to have the kind of attitude problem that's been rife at warrington for too long.
A move to Wigan would probably be good business all round as he might find some heart playing for his home town club.
Gleeson on form is an awesome player he just ain't showing it for us.

Not only is it not entirely the same situation, but it bears absolutely no resemblance whatsoever. rolleyes.gif

When wires signed Gleeson it was for 4 seasons '05,'06,'07,'08. STill over a year to go on his contract by my reckoning. If anyone wants him they had better bring their cheque book ready to write out the cheque for the hefty transfer fee! laugh.gif

The other lad who wigna have been rumoured to be keen on is paul wood.

Again he is a wiganer.

If wire dont have to release a big name player then they will have a squad for the rest to be envious about and should be challenging for major honours.

Its not beyond the realms of possibility Tricky, but I don't think Wire are a selling club these days.

We've not lost anyone to one of the 'big' clubs since Fozzard, if I remember rightly.


Looking at your league position, you should consider selling all of them.

King will go to Wire, and not make one iota of difference to a ###### team.

Honest opinion - He's not worth that.

He's no Lyon, Cooper, Hodges, Gasnier or Tonga is he? I agree he is the right type of import SL Clubs should target as he is a current International and S.O.O player but for that amount of cash? No Way.

FFS.

Could someone pease explain to certain posters that we DO NOT KNOW HOW MUCH THESE PLAYERS ARE BEING PAID.

How difficult is it to understand?

Except when it comes to Wigan players, whereby every member of this forum seems to get an e-mail directly from each players agent.

If Wigan and Bradford were seriously interested, then Wire must have offered him a lot of money to go to a club that, in all honesty, is going nowhere.

How much are we actually paying him though? He may just feel that wires are his best option,given the dodgy dealings at two of the other clubs who were interested in him. All the wild speculation about his wages is almost as bad as all the previous wild speculation from the wiganers who believed they had his signed contract in their back pocket! biggrin.gif

Well they bloody well should be considering the amount they are spending and their current position.

NL1 needs Matt King.

The title of this thread includes a speculative figure of Matt Kings projected salary, therefore my opinion has been offered based on this threads title topic.

If you get frustrated by TRL Posters discussing the topic of each thread then dont read them.

That easy enough to understand? rolleyes.gif

A speculative figure regarding his salary,that's exactly it........speculative. His actual contract is probably considerably less than that. None of us will ever know what he actually earns,that's between himself,his agent and the club.
