Interesting to see our AIA deal is £5m short of the four teams above us. Utd operating to a different amount as they are a commercial giant. The top 6 also going nowhere near putting a gambling sponsor on their kit.

Also, Man City's amount is effectively self-dealing at worst, or blatant cronyism at best. Easier to fake the money than make the money.

Wow I knew that gaming has really taken off in Malta, but not by that much that they can sponsor three Premier League clubs. Obviously where the money is, as opposed to tourism.

Another interesting finance thread from Swiss Ramble:
As usual an excellent piece from the Rambler, he is of course relying on the figures reported in 2018 which were the numbers for the 2017/18 season, the latest figures that are available. We didn't start our new contract spree until the 18/19 season, and spent bugger all on transfers and new wages until the 19/20 season, we won't see those comparisons for another two years ... when you also factor in the impact the new stadium will have this season, it's a pretty safe bet that we've closed the gap with the other five and moved further ahead of the rest ...

What was apparent was just how different we are to all other clubs. To the point that he had to exclude us to show the trend both in terms of the clubs outside the top 6, as well as those inside it.

Shows just how massively we've overachieved ... now is the time to catch up, let's hope last summer was just a taste of things to come ....

This jumped out at me as well. The questions is whether or not the newfound revenue (consistently playing in UCL and making it to the knock out rounds, new stadium revenue, and better commercial sales due to improved brand from more success) will translate into higher wages (actual wages plus amortised transfer fees) over the long run. You can see that the growth in revenue from UCL is substantial. Levy can increase both wages and profits.

Need a couple more windows for that to be fully assessed but feel that this will be the tread. It was up 21% a couple of years ago and since then we've given significant new contracts to key players and brought in Ndombele who's reported to be on £200k pa. We will, of course, no doubt lose some wages soon too. It wouldn't surprise me if we sold Aurier, Sissoko both on big wages. Then there are Toby, Vertonghen and Eriksen question marks remaining.

I believe wages from here on out will increase, I fully expect us to still operate differently than other clubs. Despite our increased revenues we are still operating on a totally different level to that of City, Utd, Liverpool, so we can't emulate their model.
