Huge Money Waste

The most expensive team EVER – yours for £1,351,180/week!


It seems that in the world of professional football, right backs and left backs are like the hospital porters compared to the glitzy surgeons nodding them in up front. Not one of the tireless wing-backs features in the Top Fifty earners – not even Mrs Gary Neville, who you would think demands money for breakfast.

Hence, the highest earning XI finds itself having to go with a 3-4-3 formation, which in modern footballing terms, is ridiculous. Still, here they are in all their wealthy glory:

Goalkeeper: Iker Casillas (£114,750/week)

Defenders: Rio Ferdinand (£96,581), John Terry (£130,050), Sol Campbell (£105,188)

Midfield: Cristiano Ronaldo (£122,400), Frank Lampard (£130,050), Steven Gerrard (£122,400), Michael Ballack (£124,313)

Forwards: Kaka (143,438), Ronaldinho (£135,788), Fernando Torres (£126,225)

Think your rabble could beat them?

    Don’t think Sol Campbell is on £105k per week now, used to be at Arsenal.
    What about Beckham on £500k per week?

    The figures look pretty sound, but I’m not entirely convinced that is a real picture. Who plays with red footballs for Christ’s sake?!

    pity kaka is a midfielder so make that a less silly 3-5-2

    Beckham’s salary is relatively low (i.e. still dwarfs yours but smaller than these guys’.) The rest of his spectacular dough is paid by the LA Galaxy’s sponsors, and not the club itself. I think that’s right, isn’t it, David?

    Everybody knows Gerrard and Lampard can’t play together – another great team ruined

    Looks like Stevie G is giving Kaka a good hard rogering.

    Hand on his shoulder, “Who’s the fucking daddy!”
