In the next 2 hours, John Terry will earn my weekly salary!

It would take me 78 years to earn John Terry's annual wage!

Neymar would earn my weekly salary in the next 10 minutes. Literally he can have a long shit and earn what I earn in a week, for having a shit!

It would take me 1017 years to earn what Neymar earns in a year!!!!

In the time I've been writing this post Neymar has earnt £250!

It's total madness isn't it? Oxlade-Chamberlain turning down £180k a week at the Gooners. Leicester offering £23m for Jonny Evans. Jonny Evans!!

Will the bubble ever burst??

I actually admire the Ox for turning down the money and the Champions because of footballing reasons.

Wages are crazy yes, but you can't really blame the players.

Loads would take that and sit on the Chelsea bench. He wants to play and play in his preferred position. Fair play.

To be fair, I don't blame the players for the ridiculous wages on offer, nor Ox for wanting first-team football.

It's just the notion of turning down wages of £180k PER WEEK - the mind boggles.

How are we ever going to catch up with teams paying that sort of money even if we get up?

The only way we will live with them is if we are backed by the Chinese government.

The Ox to Liverpool for £40m.

At that rate, I'm worth £2m. I was never very good and I'm 39 now.

Andros Townsend potentially going to Leicester and being valued at 28 million really bugged me, especially when there were whispers of Demarie Gray being used in exchange when he's a better and younger player.

Perfect illustration as to why football is ruined. 'My' football anyway.

I'm holding on for dear life because I love Villa and all that goes with it, but top level football is lost now.

Only thing we can hope for is that a club or two go bust for the ridiculous fees and wages and maybe, just maybe, we will get our game back.

The bubble has to burst at some point surely!?

OK, you're not very good. But look at that 39. Spot on for a signing for us. Expect a phone call from Steve.

Good article from David Conn in the Guardian about how PSG are taking the piss out of UEFA and FFP in their signings of Neymar and Mbappe.

These signings are a clear challenge to the “FFP” regime introduced by Uefa in 2011 to restrain excessive spending on transfers and wages, and encourage clubs to be financially responsible.

The current regulations limit clubs competing in Europe’s elite competitions to total losses of €5m for the 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18 financial-reporting periods, or €30m if an owner is entirely covering the extra €25m. Reports that the rules have been relaxed have been mostly exaggerated; there has been some allowance for expenditure immediately after a takeover, but the rules governing the clubs are now stricter than initially, when a €45m loss over the first two seasons was allowed.

Uefa’s collation of top flight clubs’ accounts across Europe show a transformation in football’s handling of its TV bonanzas since, registering an overall operating profit of €1.5bn in the last two years, compared to total losses of €700m in the two years prior to the introduction of FFP. PSG have sold players too, including Blaise Matuidi for £18m to Juventus and Jean-Kevin Augustin to RB Leipzig for £11m, but Neymar and Mbappé look like up-yours signings, and it is difficult to see how PSG’s income and expenditure are going to balance, and pass Uefa scrutiny.

I'm not sure I want to enter a world where Johnny Evans is worth £23m

I think the bubble will burst because at some point people of generation will surely stop buying sky sports? Won't they? Maybe just me then.

I am right footed.

I've always wanted to put a reducer in on Wayne Rooney.

If those two facts don't qualify me for right back, I don't know what does.

As a Brucey bonus, I'm a free agent so I can be signed after the window slams shut.

It's a no brainer, Steve.
