  1. I like Ox as a footballer but CF isn’t his position IMO. He prefers being on the ball and he doesn’t make runs in behind. He’s a good attack midfielder in any of the three positions behind the striker in a 4-2-3-1, or as a more attacking midfielder in a three man midfield.

    I’ve highlighted that your theory that Arsenal’s finances and ours should be in-line is based on fallacy. There are plenty of differences between the two clubs. Clubs pay agent fees for contract extensions as well no? So that could be one of the drivers. If I’m honest I haven’t looked the the accounts. Since you have it in front of you, what’s Arsenal’s their bottom line and how does it compare to ours in the same period?

    Lol. Fair enough. I don’t know enough about either player.

    Summer 2021 transfer thread.

    I watched a handful of West Ham games last season, and Antonio, Lingard and him always looked the likeliest. That compilation is a bit underwhelming though. If that’s 9 mins of his best plays from last season then yeah, Salah wouldn’t be losing any sleep over him taking his place.

    Summer 2021 transfer thread.

    I see PL proven as someone who has proven his suitability to the league. We have seen time and again very good players like Morientes, Veron, Di Maria, Falcao, Crespo never settled because they weren’t suited to the demands of the PL, in particular the pace and the physicality. We know that Bowen is not at the level of the aforementioned players, but from what we’ve seen from last season, the demands of the league don’t faze him. I’m always a supporter of letting talents move to smaller clubs to prove themselves, and only then we snap them up and pay the premium. Like we did with Mane, Gini, Virge for example.

    I was calling out your theory that “we are the same size as Arsenal so our financials should be in-line”. I tried to show you the many instances that they’re different. We reportedly pay higher agent fees than most clubs, and we pay agents fees not just for transfers but for new contracts too so that could be one of the factors. We pay higher salary than them because our players are better and they won the CL. Their depreciation is higher because of their new shiny stadium. So no, I don’t see any reason as to why our finances should be in-line with Arsenal’s. What is their bottom line (Profit or loss) compared to ours out of interest? What’s your theory regarding the £41m?

    But that $100m profit would exclude any cash movements that has no P&L impact e.g., cash instalments from purchases made in prior years, or cash outgoings from transfers in the current year. The reason accrual basis accounting where player costs get recognised over of the life of the contract is to show the fairest representation of financial performance of the current year, so that it couldn’t be manipulated with various payment terms. All the previous results yourself have mentioned in this thread refer to P&L statements, and as Daisy showed player amortisation is one of the largest costs. To now dismiss it as irrelevant would be at best misguided or at worst disingenuous IMO,

    Not the most inspiring of highlights admittedly but I can draw some positives: 1. He looks like he has serious pace 2. Like Mane and Salah, it looks like he enjoys physical battles against oppositions 3. He’s english therefore homegrown 4. He’s PL proven

    But that’s not the case right? Looks like we pay higher salaries than them. They probably have higher D&As because of their newer and larger stadium. They probably earn higher income per game as a result, but we probably earn higher overall turnover due to more game playing more total games, more CL games, and higher prize money, etc. There are loads of different factors. What was Arsenal’s bottom line I’m the same period out of interest? Just humour me for a minute, but what’s your theory behind this mysterious £40m higher costs Daisy?

    I have no position in this. I’m trying to confirm what yours is. So you’re okay with their amortisation costs being bigger than ours, and you’re fine with salary costs being significantly higher than theirs, but you’re annoyed that when you ringfence salary and amortisation (not sure why you would), outside of that we incurred £40m higher costs than Arsenal? What’s your hypothesis there?

    Okay let’s do it properly. We spent £118m higher than Arsenal which £91m can be explained by higher rem costs. Is your concern the rem costs being too high to be realistic or that we incurred £27m higher costs again outside of rem?

    Just from your numbers you posted above, we spent c.£118m more than Arsenal, and salary cost is c.£100m higher, no? Or have you posted the numbers wrong?
  14. aRdja

    Sorry I missed this, so basically the main variance driver is higher remuneration costs c.£100m. Given the state of our squad and management vs theirs and the fact the period covered us winning the CL finishing second in the league with the resulting incentive payments, it’s not that outrageous IMO. The rest is basically offsetting with net impact of £18m higher costs. We pay higher agent fees than most clubs so perhaps that’s one of the drivers.

    I’m just trying work it out with you. You mentioned turnover was £500m and salary was £326m, and you don’t think the there isn’t enough clarity to explain the £174m gap. My hypothesis is depreciation and amortisation would explain a fair chunk. Do you know how much that is? Even from the previous year would be ok as a placeholder.
