Thats the problem for everyone there are going to be casualties along the way the league might look very different when it resumesNobody knows what will happen in the coming months regarding football. All we know is this pandemic will last for months and months maybe the rest of the year.
All depends if the transfer market opens and if teams are willing to spend what they were before this pandemic happened.....or selling a player.
They've still made a profit in each of the last 2 years, despite crashing out the UCL qualifiers. Down to selling Dembele & Tierney. Chances are Edouard will be long gone this summer too,but they'll get cash for him.
Any prophecies of them being in a possible cash flow crisis are pretty fanciful to be honest.
I don't think the OP is saying we are not struggling. He is highlighting that the bestest bestest club on the planet who bleat about being so cash rich have sent out begging letters desperate for money.They’ve been able to renew for months now.
I’m not sure how you work out that we’re not struggling through another clubs actions.
Yeah. They're an example to us all.This might not be popular. But their board had the foresight to see the pandemic becoming a real issue and tried to get as much cash in the door as early as possible. A lot of people will rightly see this as mugging their less intelligent fans off before the shit hits the fan with the pandemic. Others might think its good business practice
They are aren't skint but they have massive overheads and are carrying a wage bill £15m more than a massive club like Ajax right now.
Agree. They have over £50 m plus the recent Adidas announcement. Did they not give £150k to some community group recently?
i wonder if this will be the last time we see or hear the tarriers being 'cash rich'For all the bluster they make about having imaginary “zillions” in the bank they will be one of the hardest hit just because of the sheer size of their wage bill.
£60,000,000 a year wages plus millions more in bonuses will be completely unsustainable if this virus causes disruption for more than a few months for them.
They probably rely on match day income more than we do as well selling their tat in the club shop and more individual tickets sold etc.
Rangers won’t be immune from this but the yahoos will take a severe kicking as well especially as they have to refund season tickets and we don’t.
