If you don't see that as successful ong term planning and smart investment in players and think that is a model that cannot be successfully replicated then I dont know what to say. New stadium built too so focusing on profit during this time is a false perspective. They have cracked the system.
oxf*rd sake Seth, you can't measure the success of a financial model on transfer fees in and out.
It doesn't matter if they make 7 million percent profit on all their transfer dealings if they still spend over their income on wages and end up with an overall loss most seasons.
Forget transfer fees.
But their losses were something like 4 million in 2017/18 and 3 million in 2016/17 while building a stadium, signing players and handing out new contracts before making a 20-25 million profit the next season. Their matchday income is nothing. Basically nothing. They make pretty much all their money through player salesso of course i will judge it on that.
