Net Spending - £12m this season
Looking at the numbers on the site below.

https://www.transfermarkt.com/west-ham-united/transfers/verein/379/plus/0?saison_id=2017&pos=&detailpos=&w_s=

If Sakho goes (for the reported £7m) that reduces this to a total of £5m. Even allowing for the increase in wages, this says everything.

Am I missing something?

No way our weekly wage bill is 2.8m.... that would mean an average of 112k each on a squad of 25.

90m is about right I reckon.

Re: Net Spending - £12m this season
So 25m in from Sakho and Ayew means the club are in profit.

Quite possibly mate, i just tried to google search it.

If thats the case then, thats why we havent got any fucking money. £2.8m a week on fucking who!?!!

And I believe that's just playing staff.

Re: Net Spending - £12m this season
I thought the last wage bill reveal had us at 2.8m per week, which is 145m a year?

Re: Net Spending - £12m this season
Lets do some fag packet maths.

WAGES
Approx £90m this season

TV Revenue & Prize Money for 16/17 season approx £110m

Puts us at +£20m

Rent and stadium upkeep ~£10m

Puts us at about +£10m

Season ticket sales (50,000 x crica £400 each = £20m

Puts us at +£30m

This is before any merchandise, hot dog sales, and normal ticket sales per day.

So you're looking at AT LEAST a £50m profit last year, coupled with the UP monies, we should at least have £65-70m to spend, JUST TO BREAK EVEN

WE ARE BEING TAKEN FOR FUCKING MUGS.

rumford:
We are the 7th highest wage payers in the premiership behind the current top six clubs so we must be doing something wrong some where.

Thats the only way we can attract players with a certain profile to join us.
We are doing the opposite of whats decent business.

The owners are tying up the budget in expensive wages because they dont want to look cheap, and can sue that as an excuse not to buy

For pointing out that net spend is a meaningless stat? Ok mate lets go and break the world transfer record and sign someone like Harry Arter for 250m. We'll have the highest net spend in the league by some distance but still only have a shit player to show for it.

If you want to slag off the owners for not having a coherent transfer strategy, for embarrassing us with what they spout in various outlets, or for taking us to a cunthole of stadium, I'll happily join you.

But net spend? Nah, doesn't mean fuck all on its own and I'm not sure why people get worked up over it.

Re: Net Spending - £12m this season
Shows how clueless the board are then if we have such a high wage bill.

I am not sure why their backers are championing this information unless we are being told that we should be thankful that they allow the club to spend some of the money West Ham United generates from it's activities on football players though if the owners are personally financing this spending by investing extra funds I will stand corrected.

I personally wouldn't mind us folding as a club.

17th largest in world football, wasn't it?

Trevor B 8:14 Mon Jan 29
Re: Net Spending - £12m this season
Generally in sports it's the team with the highest wage bill that generally has most success, the mere fact that we have a big wage bill suggests to me that the incorrect players have been signed, withstanding their signing costs.

Re: Net Spending - £12m this season
5 million since the summer is a simple pisstake from the Daves after the stadium move and people like Stepney make excuses for them along the way

Re: Net Spending - £12m this season
Bit of a meaningless stat on its own. Spurs I think have net profit most seasons but are challenging near the top end. Burnley I think are also in profit yet sit in 8th.

Brighton and Huddersfield are somewhere around +40m for net spend but are in a relegation battle and below us in the table.

Re: Net Spending - £12m this season
Yeah season before this we were the 6th largest net spenders I believe. But we're spent sweet FA this season.

Don't give then ideas!

They'll just change the first "R" in the name to a "B" (using a few old strips of insulation tape to save money) and plaster the place with adverts for the new Anne Summers hair dye....


...football can go fuck itself.
