Managing Wexford (irish first division), i found some problems with the wages.
I tried to sign a player that wants 2.2 k€ per annum, but my board allow me to offer only 1.3. So i tried to offer him (for a 1 year contract) 1.3 k€ wage + 775 fee on signing, equal to 2.075 k€. He reject to take the fee.
Other problem: i tried to sign alioski for free, and he ask an amateur contract with a wage of 6 € (a pint of beer ) per match. I tried to offer him 300 € per annum (50 match, more than he can play) with a part time contract, but he rejected. He wants a beer every match he plays.
Last: i have a wage budget of 85 k€, and i use 56 of them. I tried to sign some """quality""" (for wexford) players, but the board allows me to offer for a star player only 2.2 k€. Please note that i have 3 high """level""" players that earn 5.75 k€ per annum, and the star that i want to sign asks 4 k€ per annum
So, my questions are:
Why players prefer an amateur contract instead a fixed time contract?
Why players doesn't want a signing on fee?
Why my board doesn't allow me to offer a wage that i can largely afford?
