Bonuses Will Be Paid Out – Targets Set Before Season Starts


When you set bonus targets and those targets are met, the bonuses are paid out – that happens in any business – and when targets are set,  that extra money is paid out if and only if those targets are met or exceeded, and sometimes there are graduated increases in the payments depending  by how much the target is exceeded.

Alan Pardew – will get bonus if Newcastle finish in top ten

So we expect that the Newcastle squad, manager Alan Pardew and his coaches and the administration staff (or whoever were included in the bonus scheme) will be paid bonuses this season, and the amounts would have been set back in August or even before that.

It was widely reported that if Newcastle finish in the top 10 then bonuses will be paid out.

We’ve seen some suggestions that the bonuses should not be paid out – but you cannot do that  – if the targets are met then the bonuses will be paid out.

And the fact that Newcastle have slipped badly this year, and have put in some pathetic performances and most of our points – 33 – were gained last year – has nothing to do with it.

And it seems almost certain that we will finish in at least 10th place in the league, with West Ham a full 12 points behind us at the moment in 11th place.

Maybe next year the target should be top eight or even top six – so the bonuses will be much harder to attain.

Comments welcome.

    im getting very tired of seeing us get linked with all different players,the sad fact is we are not in the running for any of these players so I would like to see that carry on stop.Debuchy is on his way out and he has been by far one of our better players this year.The fact that frighten’s me so much is just exactly how much we did rely on cabaye.My god our total whole gameplan went through him.i didn’t think he was that important but his absence from a creating and defending point of view was quite immense.our midfield now is all muscle and now brain.sissoko,tiote and anita have zero creativity between them,had cabaye not been in this team until January we could be in deep trouble right now.unfortunately luck runs out EVENTUALLY FAT MIKE AND YOUR PUPPET ON A STRING MANAGER.

    Would love Sunderland to go down because I am sick of them beating us easily under Pardew and if he stays manager then the beatings will continue so to save myself the anger and embarrassment its just better if they go down

    When they were singing that chant “We always win 3 nil” at St James’s this season I would have loved to have stuck the head into Pardew!!

    To match the fans expectations regarding the team, results and tactics I reckon we need to spend around 50 million… We will most likely spend a third of that at the most so I really dont see anything changing anytime soon.

    I’d imagine most fans expectations are that we are consistently a top 6 side, on par with where Everton find themselves. I really don’t think it would cost £50 million to achieve that, so with all due respect I disagree with your opinion.

    Surely you can see where Jazzy got that assumption, since you took something jazzy said, which had no reference to me, and then proceeded to make it about me in an insulting manner.

    If you have no problem with me I would appreciate it if you stopped referencing me in your pointless comments that have nothing to do with football. Cheers pal.

    That is indeed true. Would understand it better if I’d ever instigated anything with him, but other than telling him to grow up and stop being so childish in his manner (again, advice that went unheeded) I’ve done nothing to the bloke.

    Ah well, them’s the breaks.

    Ciaran… To get anywhere near top 6 we need to replace Cabs, thats 10 million at least. Then we need two proven goalscorers, one of which can get us around 20 goals a season. Thats around 15 million each. Then we need a winger to provide assists and our defense need some shaking up as well. 50 million is about right for a top 6 target to get what we need and replace what we will lost and have already lost (Cabs, Remy, HBA, Colo to name a few).

    Don’t think we need 2 20 goal-a-season strikers. The only clubs who have those at the moment are Liverpool, Man City and Man United – even though they are misfiring. We need 1 20 goal a season man, which is all we had when we were finishing in the top 4 when we had Shearer.

    We do need to replace Cabaye and replace any outgoing players, but look at the quality of players Everton and Southampton have snapped up over the last few years for absolute peanuts. There is quality for relatively cheap out there, you just have to back your scouts to find them.

    I’ve asked you nicely. Don’t reference me again. Cheer pal.

    Our players out on loan will be part of our first team next season and probably about 14 mill available for signings if we can get them over the line.

    Oh and Sunderland 0-2 down
