I know he is generally unpopular on here, but he comes out with some interesting stuff on these videos.
In this episode he talks about the problems agents cause in unsettling players and wages.
Danny Rowe was enjoying football at Fylde, never any trouble etc. Then he got an agent.
Contrary to belief, it was said, Fylde has a salary cap per player of £1k a week.
Apparently The Agent got into Rowe’s head and told him he was underpaid and he could get him £1,800 a week.
Rowe went to Oldham, who the owner called a “ basket case” of a club for that amount.
For two months, March and April, Rowe didn’t get paid.
With regard to Walker, the owner said he read on the Stockport boards he had gone to Flyde for £2k a week.
He said this was nonsense as their cap has always been £1k.
Personally, I have no reason to disbelieve him, even though the salary cap doesn’t fit with what many have posted on here before.
