I am playing as Bolton and my wage budget has just been cut from £261K down to £50K for second season. The board now say they are "distraught and devastated" about my wage control. Will I get sacked for this? Struggling to cut it that much quickly.

Do you have no transfer budget to put into your wages to give you some time to sort it out

Then I would say you are screwed. Why did/are you loosing all that money , did you overspend the first season ?

The only solution here is to sell all the high earners to cut wages and bring in some money.

If you have not managed to get promoted Id say you re a dead man walking. Even if you have you re still a dead man walking.

Its impossible to manage in the EPL/CHAMPO with 50k wages lets get real. Id start again with BOLTON and mind the finances better (eg by having big friendlies away whenever you have free time etc).

Look at BOUDJEMAA then he may do a job for you.

Also in youth teams of German top clubs there are a lot of quality youngsters available on free/cheap loans. People like Da Costa (a lb).

I actually got sacked due to the finances and board wanted playoff even with ten point deduction, so no longer have save. Meant to say I was using lfcmarshall update.
