Football wage bill limits
4:50pm Friday 2nd May 2014 in Readers' Letters
WITH Manchester United confident in signing promising prospect Luke Shaw from Saints, money no object, is it not time to do what many other sports do: introduce a handicap system to make the Premier League a level playing field for all teams?
I believe it should be reckoned on the size of your wage bill.
There should be a league average.
If you go over that you start games a goal down, up to the maximum of two goals down.
This would put a brake on the hyper-inflation that allows billionaires to buy success which is what we have now.
PADDY MAXWELL, Southampton.
