Manchester City chief executive Garry Cook and football administrator Brian Marwood are stranded with over paid and over priced players.
That's exactly what several of the Red Tops have been reporting for months and to be honest, I have to agree.
Emmanuel Adebayor, Wayne Bridge, Craig Bellamy, Roque Santa Cruz, Nedum Onuoha and Jo are still contracted to MCFC and I'm sure even they would be the first to admit - they haven't a hope in hell of getting a squad number this season.
Reports suggest their combined wages are approximately £500,000 a week and even with the financial clout of ADUG this cannot be sustained for another season - surely?
Adebayor is thought to be the biggest earner from the six earning a whopping £130,000 a week but if you were in their shoes what would you do? Perhaps one would be happy to stay and pocket their mega-bucks salary and do nothing in return, or if they had any morals then perhaps they should be prepared to drop their salary demands and move on.
The club are thought to be holding out for the best price possible but with the UEFA financial fair play rules on the horizon perhaps Cook and Marwood should bite the bullet and let them go at a loss.
The summer transfer window closes on 1 September and something or someone is going to have to compromise. I wonder who it will be.
