Also, if anyone is interested in seeing how many minutes these clubs actually give to their own academy products Sky Sp0rts just did a good piece on it over on their (much better) site
@135. Halewood, I'm a massive United fan so I'm not trying to troll you here, but we did come second in the CL final. Twice, in three years to the same Barcelona side. Brutal memories.
This comment was removed because it broke the house rules. Explain
@134 very true, but we never come second in the CL Final did we my friendBy the way it’s Bill Shankly!
@132. HalewoodIf you’re first, you’re first. If you’re second you’re nothing- Bob Shankly
@125. EqualiserHahahahaha. Well it’s true that even the good guys on here clearly don’t understand finances.However, if you look at nited’s Balance Sheet you will see that they have debt to the company that funds them. It’s a dirty real estate / shopping mall entity in the U.S. We all understand it’s fake / engineered that way, but as regards the financial statements, I’m correct 😉
@131 so there’s now a “prize” for coming 6th, well done Man United
127. Posted by HalewoodEvery team in the Premier League gets prize money at the end of each season, the higher in the table you finish the more you get.
123. livingmercerway@redarmy71How is the acquisition of £180 million in revenue from the sale of youth players "a benevolent charity"?Sorry mate but I checked my comment that included 'benevolent charity' in relation to the academy of MCFC and I see no mention of £180m. Would you happen to know why this is? I can only guess from what I saw was that I meant something else entirely.
@125 The EqualiserSo the owners just use MUFC as a 'cash cow' whilst using its revenue to pay off the massive debts they incurred from loans they used to buy the club in the first place?Wow! How do you fans put up with that state of affairs?Still got the Green and Gold clobber in the loft?
@120 a true blue with an ounce of football knowledge wouldn't call Liverpool a "small club"@123 it's a waste of time arguing with him, to him it's only United who do everything the right way!@125 there was no "prize money" last season my friend
'While Ajax and Feyenoord have previously been the best represented clubs from outside Europe...' Last I checked, the Netherlands was still in Europe.
120. Posted by true blue United are not funded by anyone our owners dont put a penny in to the club, the club is run using money earned such as sponsorships, ticket sales, merchandise sales, tv money, and prize money.
121. Posted by cfkwrhPhil Foden played 13,605 minutes for City last season? That's over 358 minutes per game, astonishing!! They must have got a 'sponsor' for his minutes played.
@redarmy71How is the acquisition of £180 million in revenue from the sale of youth players "a benevolent charity"?City coach and educate these lads to the highest level. Naturally, only a TINY number of them will ever reach the elite standard of the 1st team - but City's duty is to promote ALL lads who aspire to professional careers: these will, in nearly ALL cases, begin elsewhere.
118. Posted by AFCDaleyou do know you just named the best two academies in the country and the reason why England at every level have been so successful over the last few years, curning out loads of trash is not the same thing as getting youth to excellence
