I don’t know if I want to play to stereotypes here.

But the general reaction to this latest report, from myself included does hint a little bit of the old idea that the north is more about working hard for a pittance and being grateful for it rather than ‘those fancy Southerners’. Just think of the Monty Python sketch if you don’t know what I’m on about.

According to journalist Alan Nixon, newly-promoted Fulham look set to beat Sheffield United, amongst other clubs to the signing of Wigan Athletic left-back Antonee Robinson by offering him as much as £50,000 per week in wages, something that could put him well out of our price range.

Is £50,000 per week too much for the Blades to be paying?

Yes

Yes

No

No

As I said yesterday, with our highest-paid player currently on £25,000 per week according to SpotRac, it might not look too good for us to go and offer that much to one player, and it looks as if I’m not alone in that view, as these Sheffield United fans all agreed that the idea that paying that much wasn’t exactly smart thinking.

What about you? Would you pay that much in wages for someone like Robinson?
