They are 4th we're 5th in revenue very fair to compare i think. They just spend money better. Simple as. the 49M can be made up easily from sponsorship streams like commercial partners of which we are a disgrace to big clubs in attracting through piss poor board.
Totally wrong, what source are you using?
Deloitte Football Money League 2010/2011:
That money can't 'easily' be made up, I know quite a bit about that sector and it's not as easy as you think transfers are done. You can't just call up a business and ask them if they'll give you whatever you want, it's achieved over a period of time with a quality finance/marketing structure, not much to do with the board whatsoever, apart from Gazidis. United are a prime example, they grow every year with the number of commercial partners they have, something we don't do which is hindering us. To get that many big deals, you need to be a marketable property, it's no surprise that the clubs with the best commercial deals are those winning the trophies and are the European goliaths. Munich are way ahead of people behind them, and Chelsea are right on our tails. The way each club spends their money is different, most people think that £55m profit we earned was going to be put towards transfers; it's not. It's just mostly paper profit, and we earned very little of that through any other means than player sales.
