We had to offer him a contract to ensure compensation.

You can waste a good 5k-10k on travel costs a year when you start commuting an hour or over each day.

So, the fact we offered him a contract doesn’t actually mean Wellens wanted to keep him.

In recent seasons we've often offered contracts to players we seemingly don't want... McGivern last seasion for example and Moore the keeper, when I say seemingly, I mean the fans don't want so assume the club must be similar. With Knoyle most would have been happy for him to stay, so again the assume the club must be similar

How many days do they come in, in a chronological year.   It's not te overall cost, that is of interest but  the difference in petrol costs of London to Calne/London to Cambridge

It's not just about petrol costs!

It kills your car - If you do double the driving, it's double the servicing and tyre costs, ruins the residual value and you need to buy a new cars more often. 

The alternative of not driving every day means you have to rent digs somewhere.

All these extra costs come out of net pay, so you have to double them to cover the tax before you can compare the salaries.
 
There's also a massive difference in time cost.  What value do you put on being able to spend every night with your partner or an extra couple of hours with the kids everyday.

Just to be clear, it is an assumption based on the available evidence and the application of common sense.

It's rather like the debate between Bohr and Einstein in the 30's.... Bohr's contention being that quantum theory suggested the moon wasn't there if you are not looking... Einstein's argument, common sense tells you it is there when you're not looking.

And at the risk of opening a new front, I don't think Einstein's going to be very happy with your representation of his method as "basically, common sense, innit", but in a Swiss accent.

I do know from personal experience that when you set out on a career, you have to make decisions about location, housing etc, which are not perhaps what you'd like but just what you have to do, in order to progress said career.

This is why people are puzzled, as it appears that on the surface in order to progress his career Knoyle sees Cambridge as a better bet.

I really hope someone has pointed Kyle in the direction of this thread.  He'll be having a little chuckle.

Actually, maybe he'll register and let us all know the truth?
