102m Euros so far - decent amount but in today's market only enough to buy 2 players, but not pay wages !

My guess however is that the exposure Spurs will get from the CL final appearance will add zillions to that amount (and maybe get that bid Stadium Naming Rights deal over the line) plus a few younger hungry players out there might be thinking they'd like to join that 'up and coming side' rather than some of the more established sides such as Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus, Manchester United etc, providing of course the wages are ok.

So its all good.

And did I mention that with the extra UEFA Coefficient points our 5 year average is now the same as ManU ?

And as we are 18th on the list. Man united not in it next season makes us 17. If Chelsea win europa league Woolwich will dip out as well and we will be 16th so guaranteed a place in pot two at least. Of course if we win champ lge we are in pot 1.

Agreed, very likely we will be in Pot 2, if not Pot 1 (obviously a dream if that happens).

I think one or two of the other clubs above us may also fail to qualify for CL and therefore we will almost certainly be in Pot 2 - but I was going to wait until all the European leagues had ended before ascertaining our precise position.
 
What's our ten year average now, assuming either a win or loss in the final? It's ten years average that matters for the CL seeding, right?
No, the 5 year coefficient determines seeding, the 10 year coefficient determines how one of the pots of money are split, and there we still have low numbers as 'arry was never concerned about Europa League. Still if we do a few runs in CL like this year we will shoot up the 10 year coefficient too as the oldest years diminish in importance - incidentally we do still get a small increase in the '10 year coefficient' from our European exploits in the 60's, 70's and 80's !

So the 10 year coefficient isn't totally an accurate description !

Thanks, I didn't realise some of that, good to know!
It's so much money anyway that I'm not too sore about getting less than would be fair. We'll get more in time as you point out through our current success.

Just to give you an idea of how the '10 year coefficient' pot of money is distributed, Swiss Ramble's 2nd graph below gives the split.

This season our 10 year coeffient has us in 25th position, although I would guess that this years run will put us up to around 20th next season, or even maybe as high as 17th (Liverpool are 15th this year but will go up the list next year with this seasons CL run) with a decent increase in the revenue share.

BTW it might take a few years to overtake Woolwich (9th position) simply because without achieving anything they got past group stages in most years and consequently have a healthy coefficient - a classic illustration of this coefficient simply rewarding 'the old guard' from being in it even if they did nothing spectacular.
 
Worth summarising where we are post the CL final, putting a few financials in comparison with other PL clubs.

1. TV from PL and Europe

Spurs

PL. 145
CL. 90
total. £ 235m. ( £36m more than last season)

Other Clubs total TV money :
Liverpool. 251m
Mancity. 233m
Manu. 226m
Chelsea 185m. ( Shows difference between CL and EL)
Woolwich. 174m
Everton. 129m. ( Shows why Europe is so important)

So Spurs have the same level (finally ) as Liverpool ManCity and Manu of TV money...and ahead of Chelsea and Woolwich.

And £100m or more above clubs not in Europe !

Next season hopefully Manu and Chelsea will swap round whilst we continue to be in top 4 TV revenue earners.

2. Effect of UEFA coefficient on TV Revenues

Included in TV revenues is a pot of money divided between CL clubs based upon the 10 year UEFA coefficient. The TV revenues above include the following amounts ( in euros)

Manu. (5th position) 31m
Mancity (14th). 24.4m
Liverpool (15th). 23.3 m
Spurs (25th). 15.5m

So we have some way to catch up. Next season if we have a decent CL run to say quarter finals or beyond we will get into the state 15th to 20th type position do start to catch up with the other top clubs. But as it's a 10 year coefficient we'll need a few seasons of good performances to get into too 10 Uefa coefficient (10 year) which is solely used to divi up t. Revenues ( the 5 yesr one determined which pot we end in)
