I haven't noticed any comments on this:- In all £67.1M passed hands between the 20 top-flight clubs and agents for the period October 2009 to September 2010 - £3.5M less than the previous 12 months.
Arsenal - £3,660,199.00
Aston Villa - £2,279,536.50
Birmingham - £1,518,529.09
Blackburn - £1,623,232.92
Blackpool - £45,000.00
Bolton - £3,549,316.72
Chelsea - £9,293,751.48
Everton - £3,599,040.51
Fulham - £2,087,373.55
Liverpool - £9,032,528.49
Manchester City - £5,952,261.33
Manchester United - £2,312,726.00
Newcastle - £2,417,776.00
Stoke - £2,196,968.50
Sunderland - £4,421,990.72

West Ham - £3,419,089.99
Wigan - £2,461,500.00
Wolves - £1,291,794.00
And the questions:-
Where did the £3,599,040.51 come from?
And what the fuck did we get for it?

I for one believe this is not only essential, but an excellent value for money service, paying some parasite half a million pounds so he can sit down next to one of our multi-millionaire players during negotiations and look out for his interests so he doesn't get ripped off by Bill Kenwright. Fair's fair. Stop complaining!
Surely you arent suggesting that the players pay their agents out of their own pockets?! Give them a bloody break.

£45,000 in agents fees, attractive & expansive football AND higher than us in the league.

Freakin mercenaries - dispense with the lot of them, and get back to the days of Dixie......."How much? On yer bike, son!"
Agree with your comment about Holloway and Blackpool, Graham - now THAT is impressive........

Whilst I have no sympathy for Man Utd, I am glad that Ferguson effectively called Rooney's agent a twat, it is his sort of activity that needs addressing. There is no need for this sort of money to be going to agents.

Still, look at the Shite though, what kind of crap did they get for their £9m!

Holloway is a legend - sign him up!
