|Does exactly what it says on the tin - the forum for football-related discussion.
Scrub that - wrong year...
Here's the right one: Deloittes
A vague degree of midtable competence would probably lift us to 7th in England and circa 20-23rd
Doesn't surprise me really - believe we are 10th or thereabouts in average attendances as well. As has been mentioned before, despite our recent few years of ***** on the pitch, it's the likes of Villa, Everton, and Sunderland are who we should be measuring ourselves against.
It isn't hard to envisage us up to 7th on revenue in England - midtable, a decent footballing side and a reasonable punt in at least one cup competition per year is all it takes seemingly....
A rough doubling gate of revenue (the OS dream - maybe a bit of Europa) propels us into the realms of 16th/17th in Europe.....
Agreed .They are currently our appropriate peer group .
Yep, a mid table finish would have given us an extra 12m euros of income , purely on the Sky merit money .
Shows what an underperformer we tend to be - we still look back on finishing 9th and 10th as vintage years. On the positive side, despite the debt hovering over everything we do, the fundamentals of the club are strong
God, we really are woeful.
....looks like the spuds are bigger than us.................
How much are we still in debt then??....i know the two David's are doing well, to chisel it down, but how much have they done?....anyone know roughly?
The sad thing about the deloittes report every year (excluding highlighting our perennial underachievement) is the massive imbalance in revenue - and it's growing.
Last year 1st place was 4.009 times 20th place - now it's 4.173
A breakaway european league is inevitable based on these figures eventually IMO
So, a club that is potless, is the 10th richest team in England and the 29th in the world. Surely, this should be under the 'Pompey's winding up order and other team's finances thread ?
So West Ham has the highest reported revenue with €89.1M of any football club in Europe that doesn't qualify for a European sweetner on a regular basis, bar Newcastle.
Even when the club has been poorly run, we're in the top 30.
No wonder the Davids offered to help us out....
If our attendances could be raised by 15,000 - no impossibility in London,
and a few qualifications to Euro cup, we could double our current figure.
All we need now is investment.....
We have been in the top 20 of this on a few occasions, no reason why we can't again.
Just contact Ms Brady who will give you the relevant bank details so that you can arrange a transfer of funds.
All of us fans that go to the games and pay for sky tv have and are investing in the club,you could even say more and what the owners have put in of their own 'cash'
It's been discussed here before. Fans should be able to invest in the club in additional ways, not just through buying tickets and shirts. Wasn't it Ironball who started a site for seeking investors to WHU? What happend to him/that site?
We don't make the Top 30 this year.

Real Madrid become the first sports club to surpass the €500m revenue threshold in a single year

I'm gonna stick my neck on the line and assume that the Davids have a SKY subscription.
The surprising thing is seeing Fulham in the list of teams just outside the top 20. £98m revenue? Hardly going to come from sales of replica shirts unless they buy at Harrods prices!
Hardly surprising as we were in the Championship.
