Not sure how reliable the source is but this is quite revealing:

Really wish I had concentrated on becoming a lower league footballer rather than going to uni

Who's Nicky Shorey ???? Some kind of superhuman, all action marauding defender who single handedly has fired Pompey up to the top spot in the division?
That's what I'd expect for those wages anyway

Whenever i see them on The FL review program their most effective player is Jed Wallace who is on, according to that , less than £600pw.

No idea if that is accurate but it is crazy crazy money  despite their very good gates for 4th tier

Isn't he the ex-Villa player? Sure he played for England too, how the mighty have fallen.....

Wallace has been in demand from League One/Championship clubs for a year or two.  He signed a new three-year deal last summer and is very much regarded as their diamond in the rough.  Can't imagine he would have signed a relatively poorly paid deal compared to some of the other contracts on that list.

Also Matt Tubbs looks a bit low.  I know he had his contract terminated at Bournemouth in January so arguably had a decent pay-off but whilst at Dean Court he was rumoured to be taking home a five-figure weekly wage.  That's taking home, not pre-tax.  

Staggering figures from both Portsmouth and Bournemouth.  They could both be complete rubbish but neither club can surely afford those wages on their own footing.  Even scarier is the shocking financial pasts of both clubs.

I was at Accrington v Portsmouth on Saturday. Jed Wallace was absolutely awful (but he still is their best player by miles this season). On the other hand, Rob Atkinson had a decent game for Stanley, especially since they had to see the last half hour out with 10 men.

Looking at those supposed wage figures, i'd be astonished if Adam Webster is on anything close to £2.5k a week. He's still quite young, was on loan at Aldershot last season and hasn't really broke into their first team this year.

Agree with dhm about Tubbs. Bournemouth paid £700k for him so would've thought he'd be on more.

Shorey was decent in Reading first Premier League season (and I'm guessing Cole and Bridge were injured). 34 now so not really a case of the mighty falling.

Of course these figures could be a load of nonsense.

How much is Town's top earner on, do you reckon?

£800 a week? Maybe pushing a grand?
