Ha ha Levy would never do a Ridsdale.Maybe he saw Spurs get to the champions League final, spunked his knickers and now he's gone all Ridsdale.
In fairness we are now a Money macking machine nowadays and even with the loan for the ground we are making millions every year. Income will be along the lines of
Gate Reciepts £110m
CL Prize Money £60m (just for getting out the group)
TV/Media Rights £145m
Commercial Sales £105m
So some £420m and our Wage bill is by far the smallest of the top 6 at about £150m and to that running costs of about £80m and Finance and Debt repayments of £60m still leaves a profit of £130m, Year ending June'18 accounts showed we made a profit of £113m and last years will be in that region if not more with making CL final and getting about £100m from that. Going forward we will have a massive Ground Sponship deal, rumoured to be VISA and income from NFL. NFL will increase massively over the years too as it is expect that the NFL want a London Based Franchise and we are all set up for it and far better so than Wembley.
The Loan on the Ground is about £400m and the deal we have is a 20 year loan with no penalties for paying off early which will happen.
So basically everything is fairly roses and unlike your neighbours we will have no problem with FFP, this is also one reason why watching Arsenal TV is a pleasure as they know it and hate it as they won't be catching us anytime soon. must admit love the way we have done this with no Mega Rich bod just chucking money at us like City and Chelsea, we have earned the right to be were we are not just bought the right.
So Summer Transfer are happening early for us for once as Levy normally shops on the last day of the window, Ndombele was Dembele's replacement, if Eriksen goes or not I think one of Lo Celso or Ceballos (loan with view to buy) will come in to strengthen in Depth and if Eriksen does go then Both. Other will follow and fully expect Sessegnon to be done soon. Trippier will be sold and upgraded, I believe Alderweirld will sign a 2 year extension. I also think one of Dier/Wanyama will be sold probably Wanyama.
Onwards and upwards
