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 business performance.


We’re So Rich It’s Unbelievable! -The Illusion of Wealth Within Football. 3rd Edition. Our yearly investigation into the financial and economic performance of the Premier League clubs going back to 2009. With data stretching back for 9 years, what has been the effect of the new bumper domestic TV deal on longer-term trends? How have individual clubs fared in their economic and financial performance during the 2016-17 season? All this and much, much more in this expanded 82-page edition of our annual review of the top tier of English football.



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.

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.
