The twenty chairmen of Premier League clubs meet on Wednesday, with spending controls and wage caps on the agenda. After a majority of the clubs agreed in principle at their last consultation to the enforcement of breaking even, the idea of a wage cap is becoming closer to a reality. Traditionally, the opinion that footballers' wages being excessive has focused primarily on individual cases. Much of the discussion around Christopher Samba's transfer window move to QPR regarded the potentially high wages the defender would receive, and numerous players in the Premier League are now earning over £150,000 per week.
