No sooner had a European Super League (ESL) been announced than the plans were shelved, at least for the time being, but what were the factors that drove the 12 breakaway clubs to this deeply unpopular move? As usual, it was all about money, a combination of fear and greed.
Whether football is broken is debatable, but there is little doubt that many of the 12 Super League clubs are facing serious financial problems. To some extent, this helps explain why the “dirty dozen” would seek more revenue, but does not excuse this horribly ill-conceived plan.
You don’t have to look too far to see the seriousness of the financial predicament with pre-tax losses of the 12 ESL clubs adding up to a worrying £667m, even before #LFC announce their results. Three of them lost more than £100m: #Milan £169m, #MCFC £125m and #FCBarcelona £112m.

[THREAD] La capolista de #LaLiga, nel momento più buio della stagione, ha trovato 6 punti d'oro contro due avversarie abbordabili
Ma rimangono 6 punti d'oro per un #Atleti al limite delle forze e con tante assenze
#AtletiHuesca Image
#Simeone ha scelto un 4-3-3 asimmetrico con #Llorente-#Correa-#Carrasco in attacco, anche se la squadra ha presentato la classica fluidità nelle due fasi
Per esempio in fase di pressione alta, #Saul si alzava sul braccetto dx con #Carrasco sull'esterno e Renan #Lodi più prudente Image

E beh, ora il #Barca vorrà rispondere giustamente
Con il ritorno di #Pique stabile #DeJong avanzato in mediana e attacco a due #Messi-#Griezmann, panchinato #Dembele

Vabbè #Messi inizia la partita così
Complimenti ragazzo
#BarcaGetafe
#Messi ha cacciato due giocatone nei primi 8 minuti: stasera ci si diverte
Gol esteticamente appagante

After news of the European Super League broke, the estimated earnings of clubs from the Big Five leagues in the 2020/21 Champions League might seem a little bit “after the Lord Mayor’s show”, but here’s an analysis up to the semi-finals in any case.
I should emphasise that these figures can only be considered as indicative. They are based on UEFA’s revenue distribution guidelines, but also include estimates for the TV pool and rebates to broadcasters following losses caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Based on my assumptions, the top 10 TV earnings from the Champions League up to the semi-finals are: #PSG €109m, #RealMadrid €109m, #MCFC €104m, #CFC €101m, #FCBayern €92m, #LFC €88m, #FCBarcelona €84m, #Juventus €82m, #BVB €78m and #Atleti €74m.

#SevillaFCAtleti è decisiva per #LaLiga con il #Barcelona spettatore interessatissimo ImageImage
#Oblak ne ha preso un altro: rigore di #Ocampos letteralmente divorato dal portierone sloveno
#SevillaAtleti
L'assenza di #Carrasco si sta facendo sentire pesantemente: Renan #Lodi è poco propositivo ma anche poco proattivo in fase difensiva perché si fa attaccare tanto e in maniera passiva

Il #RealMadrid vuole continuare la sua rincorsa difficile all'#Atleti e la partita contro il #CeltaVigo è un bel banco di prova

Avvisate i difensori del #CeltaVigo di entrare in partita perché non continueranno a venir perdonati

Manca #Isco rispetto alla settimana scorsa e il pressing #RealMadrid si alza di efficacia

[THREAD] Ieri sera, prima di #PSGbarca, altra vittoria fondamentale per l'#Atleti che nell'ultimo recupero che gli spettava supera per 2-1 un lanciato e insidioso #AthleticClub con una gran prova di squadra
#AtletiAthletic
L'#Atleti ha aggredito la partita con grande determinazione e cattiveria spaventando l'#AthleticClub con un pressing molto aggressivo e organizzato e una circolazione di palla a due tocchi
Qui dobbiamo fare un focus su #Koke: oltre a essere il lucchetto difensivo di #Simeone, il capitano è indispensabile per far circolare palla
Qua lo troviamo sulla dx ad associarsi con #Llorente, #Trippier e #Lemar

C'è tutto perché sia un gran bel derby: sono tornati in molti (#Trippier, #Benzema tra gli ultimi)
E #Zidane e #Simeone possono mettere delle formazioni decisamente simili a quelle titolari
#AtletiRealMadrid ImageImage
#Atleti avanti sull'asse #Llorente-#Suarez: e chi se non loro
E il pistolero decide di tirare fuori il colpo più classico del suo repertorio con l'esterno
#AtletiRealMadrid
Vantaggio tra l'altro meritatissimo perché l'#Atleti ha messo in campo una partita dalle idee chiarissime: pressione alta e riaggressione mixata con un'attenta difesa bassa posizionale

[THREAD] #RealMadridRealSociedad è finita con un pareggio (giusto) per 1-1 che favorisce l'#Atleti nella corsa al titolo e accontenta #Villarreal e #RealBetis che vedono la #RealSociedad guadagnare solo un punto, riacciuffata nel finale da #Vinicius
Dopo un periodo complicato la #RealSociedad è tornata a giocare meglio e a raccogliere i frutti del suo lavoro rimanendo imbattuta ne #LaLiga dal 9 gennaio
La squadra di #Alguacil continua a essere una delle mie preferite per come sfrutta la superiorità numerica a centrocampo
Due esempi dai primi minuti del secondo tempo di ieri (favoriti anche dalla disorganizzazione del #RealMadrid)
#Isco e #Mariano sono la prima linea di pressione con #Mendy che si alza su #Gorosabel e #Modric su #Zubimendi

#RealMadrid ancora falcidiato, ma deve vincere per tenere il passo di #Atleti e #Barcelona
E stasera la #RealSociedad si presenta al completo

0-0 ma bella partita, tattica ma anche con discreto ritmo, a fiammate
Occasioni migliori per il #RealMadrid ma la #RealSociedad ha costruito diverse azioni interessanti

#RealSociedad partita molto bene nel secondo tempo sfruttando tanti movimenti tra le linee

Deloitte have published the 24th edition of their annual Football Money League, which ranks the world’s leading football clubs by revenue, this time covering the 2019/20 season. Some thoughts in the following thread.
The 2019/20 season was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to a £1.0 bln (12%) fall in revenue of the top 20 Money League clubs from £8.2 bln to £7.2 bln. Broadcast and match day fell £822m (23%) and £227m (17%) respectively, though commercial rose £87m (3%).
In terms of Euros, match day fell €257m (17%) from €1.5 bln to €1.2 bln, driven by matches either being cancelled or played behind closed doors without fans. Match day revenue is largely derived from gate receipts (including ticket and corporate hospitality sales).

#FCBarcelona recent accounts revealed major debt challenges, but they also highlighted some issues around different definitions of debt, so this thread will take a look at these using 2019/20 accounts from selected clubs and explain why Barca might have more problems than others.
Note: the clubs covered in this review are just a few of those that have already published accounts for the 2019/20 season, so it is not a ranking table as such, but there is enough detail here to illustrate the points made.
At the narrowest extreme, we have just bank debt, but the broadest definition covers total liabilities, which includes all financial obligations, including transfer debt, staff payables, tax liabilities, trade creditors, provisions, accrued expenses and even deferred income.

This thread will look at debt at football clubs, focusing on the Premier League Big Six. The fundamental question is whether this debt is too high, but the answer is complicated by the numerous definitions of debt, all of which can be valid #AFC #CFC #LFC #MCFC #MUFC #THFC
At the narrowest extreme, we have just bank debt, but the broadest extreme covers total liabilities, which includes all financial obligations, including transfer debt, tax liabilities, trade creditors, provisions for future losses, accrued expenses and even deferred income.
The net debt reported in an English club’s financial statement is in line with IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) and essentially covers purely financial obligations, such as overdrafts, bank loans, bonds, shareholder loans and finance leases less cash.

Deloitte’s annual Football Money League has become essential reading, but it only ranks the world’s leading football clubs by revenue. The following thread adds details for expenses, profits and balance sheet for an “enhanced” version of the money league.
First, we will include some handy one-pagers that include the details for the Top 20 Money League clubs, both in Sterling and Euros. Then, we will drill into each of these in turn to highlight how each club has performed in various categories (only in Sterling).
The revenue overview includes details for each revenue stream (match day, broadcasting and commercial) with broadcasting further split between domestic and UEFA competitions. Other revenue is mainly player loans that are not always included in the Deloitte definition of revenue.

Following yesterday’s UEFA Champions League final, I can update the estimate for the 2019/20 revenue distributions. We will also explain how #PSG are likely to receive more money than #FCBayern, even though they were defeated on the night.
Based on my assumptions, the top 10 TV earnings from the Champions League will be as follows: #PSG €134m, #FCBayern €130m, #FCBarcelona €104m, #MCFC €99m, #Atleti €95m, #TeamOL €89m, #Juventus €87m, #RealMadrid €84m, #CFC €81m and #LFC €80m.
Looking at how Champions League revenue is distributed in the current cycle, the importance of the UEFA coefficient is evident. TV pool is much less important than it was before. This rewards historically successful clubs rather than those with larger national TV rights deals.

Here are some financial fact sheets that were requested for a few more international football clubs. Latest available figures are from the 2018/19 season. This thread includes #Atalanta, #Lazio, #SSCNapoli, #Atleti, #WeAreSevilla and #TeamOL
#Atalanta revenue up to €147m, including €31m from Europe (2020 accounts only up to 31 Dec 2019, so don’t include all CL money). Business model very reliant on player trading. Wage bill only €69m with lowest wages to turnover of 47% in Serie A. Second highest profit in Italy.
#Lazio swung from profit to loss in 2019, due to lower profit on player sales. 6th highest in Italy for revenue €124m and wages €86m. Operating loss has widened to €30m, financed by growing debt, up to €60m (6th highest in Italy). Lost shirt sponsor due to anti-gambling law.

🆕 Fresh analysis! 🙌

Diego Simeone has not only brought stability to Atlético Madrid, he has transformed them into rivals to Barcelona and Real Madrid in La Liga. We assess the methods that have brought him such success 👇

coachesvoice.com/atletico-madri…
Simeone favours organising his team into a 4-4-2 formation with which his players attempt to dominate matches by occupying spaces, instead of prioritising lengthy periods of possession. Their sense of organisation is built on their distance from their goal #Atleti Image
Ángel Correa’s understanding of how to use movements to lose his markers contributes to making Simeone valuing him to the extent he does. He is consistently ready to make diagonal runs from a wider position to a more central one, often to attack a rival’s blind side #Atleti Image

Atletico Madrid’s 2018/19 accounts cover a season when they finished 2nd in La Liga behind Barcelona (for the second year in a row), but went out in the last 16 in both the Champions League and the Copa del Rey. Some thoughts in the following thread #Atleti
#Atleti profit before tax almost tripled from €12m to €34m (profit after tax up from €4m to €14m), as revenue rose €71m (23%) to a record €384m and profit on player sales shot up €70m to €86m. No repeat of exceptionals: Vicente Calderon sale €41m, Wanda investment €47m.
The main driver of the €71m #Atleti revenue increase was broadcasting, up €47m (30%) to €205m, mainly due to new Champions League TV deal. Commercial also rose €20m (21%) to €112m, while match day was up €4m (7%) to €66m.

Gil Manzano también fue el árbitro en el Atlético-Barcelona de la ida y no pitó este penalti de Vidal.
En 2017, Gil Manzano anuló este gol a Griezmann por un fuera de juego que no era.
En 2015, Gil Manzano no pitó este penalti de Jordi Alba, expulsó a Gabi en el descanso y mostró al #Atleti 10 amarillas y 2 rojas.

Atletico Madrid’s 2017/18 accounts cover their first season in the Wanda Metropolitano stadium, when they finished 2nd in La Liga behind Barcelona and won the Europa League (after being eliminated at the Champions League group stage). Some thoughts in the following thread #Atleti
#Atleti profit before tax increased from €5m to €12m (after tax down from €5m to €4m), as revenue rose €31m (11%) to record high of €313m, though profit on player sales fell €20m to €16m. Large exceptional items: Vicente Calderon sale rights €41m, Wanda investment €47m.
Main driver of the #Atleti revenue increase was the move to the new stadium, as match day rose €17m (37%) to €62m and commercial was up €17m (22%) to €93m. Broadcasting slipped slightly to €158m, as lower Champions/Europa League distribution offset higher money from La Liga.
