Bad start to the season. Lost 3-1 to Derby.

I am division 3 champion in the Elite league with a game to spare though. Won my game and second place lost theirs.

Well, this isn't good.

After the first match of the season (at home attendance: 74,422/76,212):

Income
Gate Receipts: £1,547,978
TV Revenue: £456,152
Sponsor: £580,492
Merchandise: £193,497
Total: £2,197,627

Expenditure
Player Wages: £1,400,335
Ground Maintenance: £773,989
Total: £2,174,324

Weekly Income: £2,197,627
Weekly Expenditure: £2,174,324
Weekly Balance: £23,303

Will see what it looks like after the Champions Cup game tomorrow - usually get a fair bit of money from those, but my finances look like they aren't going to go well this season. Will definitely need to work on cutting my squad down further.

Ground maintenance cost is ridiculous.

:eek: Don't think you had many players loaned out, did you? But that is still a lot. What was it like last season?

I lost 250k but that was an away game.
Yeah, that is pretty normal.

I make 300k from home games!
That was my income from home games last season I think. Possibly made slightly more than that.



Sercan Sararer had a +2 to 86 today and Daniel Lukasik had a +2 to 84.

Sararer is for sale if anyone wants to bid for him.

Only have 2 loaned out atm I suppose, fair point. Not sure what it was like last season, think I made a profit though.

Why is my division called Division Crewe, am I the only human player in the league?

Would you not just take a higher up team?

Beat Middlesbrough 2-1.

Also, I was online when the new game update hit, so I managed to snag the username 'damien' on there :cool:

Doncaster 1 - 8 Sheffield Wed. Great result.

The finances are fecked up though, I've lost £1.1m over these two games - 1 home and 1 away - whereas last season I was making £100k profit if I had a home and an away game.

Holy shit! So fortunate i'm up then! I was already making a loss last season and that's without the loan changes! I'd have to sell half my squad! Luckily now i'm making about 50k per week.
