FAO Bolton Chairman Phil Gartside

Bolton Chairman Phil Gartside needs to wake up and smell the coffee if he really thinks the Premier League should cap player's wages or abandon relegation.

Phil Gartside feels the joint move would make the top flight more competitive but also safeguard clubs who may be tempted to overstretch themselves financially in a bid to avoid the dreaded drop.

Mark Hughes spoke out earlier today and pooh-poohed the idea...

I don't think it [the salary cap] will happen - I think it would be against European rules.'

'There are a lot of discussions that go on at Premier League chairmen level; but how realistic they really are I don't know.'


Sparky continued...

'With regard to stopping relegation; I think he [Gartside] is just trying to protect his club's position. I don't think that is going to happen either.'

Phil Gartside

He joined the board of Bolton Wanderers Football Club in April 1989, having been a fan of the club since his days as a pupil at Leigh Grammar School. He became chairman of Bolton in October 1999.

He is a Football Association Board Member and an executive director of the new Wembley Stadium.

This comes from a man who has average players on ridiculous wages (Kevin Nolan on £45k a week for example!). A complete plonker!

I suppose he's thinking about his own interests. Mind you, if teams go down to the Championship don't they receive parachute payments for up to three years should they fail to bounce back?

Yes but there would be no need for such payments if they implemented his ideas.

OK so say they didn't cap the wages but implemented the other stuff, I still think we would have a better league and a better international team
