Net £91 350 000 over seven seasons = £13million per season.

Sky had us down as in profit since MON left (they said £69.5m in and £71m out) but I can`t make those figures 'work` and they didn`t break their figures down.

These are rough, some figures press quoted, others from transfermarket.com. They don`t include signing on fees or loan fees.

............. it doesn't include wages either Mr F. That contributed to a£110m + loss over three seasons. Add that to the £250m + he spent with buying club etc.... and it is a lot of money to dish out with zero return. Who else would be willing to do this ??? we need to be careful what we wish for becuase if Lener thinks sod this the fans are annoying me now I'd rather give it to worthy causes, it'll be Championship or League 1 for us forever. I was at forest as a kid / YTS and I went there to the pre-season friendly we had and felt sad at how such a huge club has gone to the wind. That could be us if we don't get ourselves in order. As I said in the last article and I'll keep saying it, Rangers went bump and dissapeared with less debt than we have lost recently and so did Pompey, Leeds etc etc etc ..... there aren't any more people out there like Mansour looking for a club in Brum.

You are right AstonMilan but all I would add is sharply pulling the plug on the funds because we arnt breaking even/making profit doesnt really work very well... I think we should have been slowly wound down the way we have gone about it has been a disaster... you could argue the state of the club isnt primarily a money issue its just terrible footballing decisions... Im not sure what weighting you would attach to each tho...

include the players wages in that and its alot. and remember bodymoor heath redevelopment was finished after Randy took over as well its easy for fans to point the finger, so they are all blaming the owner. Lerner has a point we cant keep making huge losses, after all, when he took over we were 16th, last season, after £200m+ of investment we finished 16th.

13 mill a season not a bad spend, but nowhere near the vast amounts some people believe he's spent, and you will NEVER get near the champions league with a 13 mill a season outlay, now if you put that into context of how much money he has, he's put nowhere near the amount into the club that I have over the years. LERNER OUT.
