Football finances

Recommended Posts

Very interesting article on football finances, I think we all know that football is a greedy rich sport and that nobody really makes a profit (mostly due to the nature of the business). I think clubs must start living within their means, the issue is how do fans get behind a club without complaining constantly about results? That is a pressuring demand, which puts strain on the manager.

Stability won't come back naturally for most clubs due to the nature of sacking managers to achieve short term success.

Could a monthly fair play rule help clubs to stay within their means? i.e clubs who operate at a loss must ensure they operate with their monthly income? Most teams spread it out across the season [or even a few]. Season tickets and shirt sales are also a big pay day.

Clubs at the lower end of the table must start living within their means.

Some of that makes scary reading. How are Scunny getting away with spending 150% of their turnover on wages? :o

The fact that most lower-division clubs make a loss is nothing new. Now, however, clubs in the PL and Championship are turning profits, providing an added incentive for club owners to gamble.
