You were promised a long post, were you not? Serves you right for having such a short one last time. Full disclosure: this post isn’t that long.
As every club has a salary cap and money is limited (when is money NOT limited?) knowing where you’re spending your money and figuring out how to get more is always important.
Take a look, first, at your current list and their salaries (and while you’re at it, can you make these salaries public because I’m sick of not knowing). Get your rankings and priorities from the previous step and compare them. Who are you paying the most? Does it make sense?
You may think that your best players should be getting the most money. While this thought pattern is logical… it’s wrong.
