Our fine-system

Interesting to look at, although how true is it and more concerning who leaked it?

You'd think there'd be fines for other poor behaviour, ie foul language, showing up hung over, bullying maybe. You'd think £100 fines wouldn't mean anything to someone on 50k a week either. Also why not just take it out of the salary slip?

Most elite sports teams have these. Someone collects the pot every month and the money usually gets donated to some charity.

Do you have a swear jar at work? Do you expect them to take it out of your salary slip?

this is the kind of pointless story the club slips out to take attention off the fact that it is 22 days into the window and we haven't signed anyone yet.

Am I the only one that thought the title of the thread was a sarcastic way of complaining about our 4-3-3?

No, thought exactly the same. Shows what a bitter/sarcastic bunch we've become I guess.

That fine list was "leaked" by some guy posting pics of his tour of Colney on Reddit. Was just an innocent "look at the cool stuff I saw on my tour" type thing.

Of course the media got a hold of it and turned it into a story.

£100 for bringing the wrong kit on match days? Jeeze.

Aaron Ramsey had an interview on Soccer AM today where this was mentioned, it's just a bit of fun to keep some discipline, Jason Roberts said it's common at every club. It's Mertesacker's job to approach the players and demand the money. What was particularly funny was when he said that Theo calls Mertesacker 'Par 5' because he's so long haha

What I don't understand is how that would even happen. We have a kit manager, and every stadium has dress room attendants who prepare and set everything up before the players even get there.

The fee makes it sound as if the players have to pack their own little bag with whatever they think they'll need.
