    Default Biggest wage you've been given

    I'm on my second five-year contract with Arsenal and I'm being paid £245,000 per week. I'm almost regretting signing for five years as I bet I could push for even more if the renewals were more frequent... How high can it go?! What's the biggest wage you've been given?

    I think it has been £125,000 but probably could get higher with that Man United save but I have not played it in ages. The record is £500,000.

    what do managers need wages for in terms of the game...surely you'd settle for less so there are more transfer funds?

    I generally always settle for the least they will offer me. They offered me £125,000 and I could not negotiate a lower deal.

    Functionally, the larger your wages:

    1. The more the board has to pay to you when they sack you, and therefore, the less likely you are to sack you. In other words, if I have 4 years left at £250,000 p/w, they would have to pay me about £52M to sack me. Even if I'm awful, losing badly, well below expectations, they are not likely to sack me due to the compensation. However, if I have 5 months left at £50,000 p/w, it might cost them just over £1M to sack me ... If I'm doing even slightly under expectations, I'm much more likely to get the sack.

    2. The more a different team has to pay your current team to hire you away. In other words, the higher your "Transfer Fee" would be. It functions similarly to above - based on [I]weekly wage[I] * number of weeks remaining on contract.

    3. The more of your team's wage budget you are consuming.

    Basically, if you are extremely confident in your ability, and intending to play a career game where you move teams frequently, you want short contracts for the minimum value offered.

    If you are unsure of your ability, or are intending to play a career game where you try to stay with a single team for an indefinite length of time, you want long contracts for the highest possible value offered.

    Mike, do you have a screen print? If you do, it's a record and can go in the records thread!

    I'm currently on £1,300 with San Marino

    I'm usually too lazy to bother with screenshots. However, that save is still current, so I might make an exception when I get home tonight.
