We look for the hidden financial trends and dynamics which show whether or not the trading activity undertaken is creating or destroying shareholder value.  Rather than relying on ‘surface numbers’ such as EBITDA etc (see Methodology), our analysis goes right to the heart of the financial data. Therefore, our in-depth investigations and research deliver a truly transparent perspective of economic performance.


Over The Line – The Economic Cost of Promotion into the English Premier League. –  a supplemental study to ‘We’re So Rich It’s Unbelievable!’ which takes a look at the economic performance of Championship clubs during their promotion-winning season into the English Premier League from 2009 to 2016. We examine the economic dynamics and trends for 19 clubs during their season of success into the top flight of English football. We also look at the incidence and effect on the clubs of relegation back into the Championship and the economic characteristics that influence the probability of either an immediate return to the Premier League or an extended stay in the second tier.


We’re So Rich It’s Unbelievable! – The Illusion Of Wealth Within Football. 2nd Edition. – a truly comprehensive economic analysis of the English Premier League and its participant clubs going back to 2009. Following on from our successful economic summary of the Top 7 EPL clubs published in November 2016, we take a highly detailed look into the financial dynamics of English football at the highest level. With 8 years of data and based on over 260 balance sheet statements from the 34 participant clubs, we are also launching the Football Profitability Index™ which highlights the key financial efficiency trends in the division and reveals some surprising results. For any investor, analyst or observer interested in football finance, this is a must-buy! Click on the title or the image to find out more.

The mix of financial stress, limited capacity and the lack of a cohesive infrastructure renewal strategy from the Government does not bode well for the country as a whole.
