    Default One of the first things I would do...

    is to introduce bonus structure for every player (Playing or subs).

    Bonus for keeping a clean sheet and scoring a goal.

    Every new player or contract should have one of those in it.

    Hmmm. Food for thought but I should think that would make it very difficult to budget, especially in these times of FFP. Clubs would potentially be reluctant to spend money just in case they were successful on the pitch.
    "To put it in gentleman's terms, if you've been out for a night out and you're looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they're good looking and some weeks they're not the best. Our performance today would not have been the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren't the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let's have a coffee." - Ian Holloway.

    most players already have that in their contracts i imagine, especially at a penny pinching club like ours. its something thats always been a case in football manager so they probably take inspiration from actual negotiations

    The players would all be shouting "Ollie Out" quicker than the fans if they're losing money at that rate.

    Every club does it, even as far down as the paid sunday leagues.

    If players got a bonus for goals scored, they’d all start getting greedy in and around the box, trying to boost their wages.
    Let’s face it though, wouldn’t cost the owners very much as we’d have 10 players blazing over the bar instead of the usual two.

    I think the bonuses at the moment are for running around a lot and badge thumping.

    Redcrapp used to bet his forwards whether they'd get so many goals, heard 20,000 in one case

    This has been standard practice for decades, hasn't it?
