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.

By god we signed some crap jeez, although to be fair Randy has a net spend of 13 million a season thats not loads for a billionaire plus we make millions of TV revenue sponsors etc I bet Randy is happier now the wage bill is lower and us not in the market for high earners sometime soon he will be making a profit every season for sure
ClivetheVillan
is the objective here to make a profit ? If so, where do I buy shares...?
malacaxeta
God, the early days looks dismal reading these days doesn't it. I prefer the present and the future these days.

I was no mcleish fan but you have to think he was on a hiding to nothing with the only season where there was a negative transfer spend and not just a small deficit either. Also interesting that having the highest net outgoing except for MON's third year in charge we only just managed to scrape past relegation. I hope the team from last year show a huge improvement next term and the new signings are superb
AVbornandbred
08/09 and 09/10 really excited me at the time, but ended up, apart from one season of success, causing years of problems. The wages and transfer fees on Dunne, Warnock, Collins, Beye, Heskey, Shorey, Sidwell and Davies :( Then you would think we learn our lesson, but sign Ireland, Hutton, Given (5yr, 50k p/w for a 35yr old?!!!)! Bring on the Lambert years!!!
antvillan
MON belongs to the ancient regime of how to run a football club. Now with the stakes higher a surer financial footing is essential: the higher the highs, the lower the lows. Step forward Robspierre Lambert weilding the financial guillotine. Good on you I say. Every now and again the rich and powerful, in this case footballers, need a kick up the arse and if this means that easy money deals are no longer tolerated at Villa then bravo Citizen Lambert. Where did I put my knitting?
