  1. English clubs owned by billionaire investors while clubs like Real and Barca are not. English clubs can pull billions out of thin air while Barca and Real highly dependent on TV deals, tax breaks and other operating income. For instance Manchester City owned by Monsour £20B worth, Chelsea by Abramovich £12B worth, Arsenal got two owners Stan Kroenke (Rams and other franchises owner) £8B worth and Usamov (richest Russian businessman and Putin friend) £15B worth, Manchester United is part publicly traded on stock market and part owned by Tampa Bay owner who owns multiple sport franchises, Liverpool owned by the company that owns Red Sox. I can go on and on but I'm sure you got the point. EPL can buy Messi and Ronaldo if they wish but Barca and Real refuse to sell them because they sell jerseys and generating much needed revenue. I mean, Manchester City just gave Real £350M for shits and giggles...
  2. Summer 2016 Transfer Window

    Wenger is busy... Gibbs is about to be sold and Wenger is trying to sign Ricardo Rodriguez, one of the best young LBs in Germany. If Wenger can achieve that, Arsenal D will be stout! Wolfsburg will likely ask for £30M-£40M.
  3. Google is your friend. I know it hurts you to admin that EPL is the richest, most world popular and boasts the most talent than any other league. You can also find CL payouts on UEFA website. Winner of CL gets €15M and loser €11M. You must be confusing it with total payout for CL participation. Also, Manchester United is £500M in debt and still spend £150M each year on new transfers. Chelsea is £800M in debt and does the same. I don't know much about Mallorca and there is nothing on Google. I'm not sure if you mean Mallaga? A team that ran out of money and failed to pay taxes and salaries.
  4. Manchester City owner gave Real Madrid £350M for new stadium... Because Real had no money for the stadium. "Real need the outside investment due to debts amounting to £474m, according to their most recent financial accounts, meaning they could not afford to update the Bernabeu themselves." Winner of CL gets additional £11M not £60M. Valenicia and Atletico are not coming out of darkness... Showing your age here bud. They used to be amazing teams 15 years ago until debt derailed them. Unlike La Liga that usually a 3 team race, EPL is all team race. Most EPL teams would rather flank CL than lose top 4. I also disagree about the talent... EPL by far has more talent than Spain or Germany. Again, any EPL team can afford a super star. You cannot say the same for any other league.
  5. EPL situation was some what messy for the past few years. I expect things to change with massive revenue inflow to EPL. Especially with Madrid having financial issues as of recently. If US continues to dump money into EPL, La Liga will be in the dust. When shitty EPL team can afford to buy a star player for £50M. That spells trouble for the rest of European leagues.
  6. Prime example is distribution of revenue. While in EPL every team gets almost identical amount, in La Liga, Barca and Real get almost 60% of total revenue. With new TV deal in place, Arsenal earned a record £101M in 2016.
  7. It's almost time again! So stoked...

    I'm not a dognut guy.
