  1. Just using those big figures it looks like there is a £390m surplus if you take off the £15m one off payment call it £375m obviously there will be a number of extra expenses but I don’t see how they would amount to £50 or so million a season?

  2. Weren’t we one of the most profitable clubs last season in all of Europe thought we were 12.
    Could be wrong. But I always read that we have goood profitable comapree towards other clubs. Also thought we had the highest gain last season in PL w £200m or so

    Need investors…

  3. If the reports from inside the club are to be believed we should post a healthy £80mill profit for the 2016-17 year when the figures are published early next year.With a net profit of around £50mill.The rest means nothing apart from the board are pocketing the profit,because they’ve made it clear Moyes must sell before we buy.I hope as I always do they prove me wrong and make money available for a couple of decent players.COYI

    • Sean posted that the other day Baddow, he said the club say that although it looks like £50m the way the payments are structured t ends up being £22.5m.
