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.

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.

Das Verhältnis zwischen #Flick und #Salihamidzic ist wohl nicht mehr zu kitten. Langfristig wird es daher nur gut gehen, wenn die beiden Akteure getrennte Wege gehen.

Ich bin dabei irgendwie unentschlossen. Aus Gründen. Ein Thread.
Beide Akteure haben sowohl positive, als auch negative Argumente auf ihrer Habenseite. Selbstverständlich sind diese auf verschiedenen Ebenen anzusiedeln, was unmittelbar zu der Frage führt: Wer wäre leichter zu ersetzen?
@Brazzo sitzt seit 2017 bei uns am Steuer. Nach einem wirklich schwachen Start hat er sich aus meiner Sicht relativ gut freigeschwommen. Rein vom Auftreten her ist er sicherer und selbstbewusster. Hinzu kommen einige Transferentscheidungen.

Deadball Overview - 20/21 so far ⚽️ Image
I know #FCBayern love intensity and flow but it wouldn’t even hurt them if they drew more fouls.
#WestHam and #EintrachtFrankfurt are interesting cases because both teams are performing significantly better now compared to last season.

19/20 West Ham: 16th
20/21 West Ham: 5th after 28 games

19/20 Eintracht: 9th
20/21 Eintracht: 4th after 25 games ImageImage

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).

„So langsam kann man die sogenannten Experten nicht mehr hören“, sagt #FCBayern Trainer Flick zur Kritik an der Reise zur #KlubWM. „Auch Herr @Karl_Lauterbach hat immer zu irgendwas was zu sagen.“ Die Politik sollte ein Miteinander finden, um Zuversicht für die Zukunft zu geben.
Der von Flick als „sogenannte Experte“ bezeichnete @Karl_Lauterbach ist ausgebildeter Epidemiologe. Zu @SPORT1 hatte Lauterbach gesagt, dass Profi-Fußballer durch ihre Reisen kein Vorbild seien und die Rückkehr von Thomas Müller eigentlich undenkbar war.…
Ohne Verantwortung zu tragen sei es leichter, Dinge zu bewerten, so Flick über die Kritik von @Karl_Lauterbach. „Wir haben einen Sonderstatus, aber ich bin knapp an die hundert mal getestet worden.“ Die Reise nach Katar „ist unser Job [...], eine Sache, die wir machen müssen.“

On Saturday, Bayern Munich face Borussia Dortmund for the 103rd time in the #Bundesliga.

DW takes a look back at historical moments in the fixture which has become known as "Der Klassiker."

#BVBFCB preview & thread.…
Early Dortmund dominance

#BVB won four of the first five #Bundesliga meetings with #FCBayern by a combined score of 15-4, including this 4-0 win in June 1967.

Bayern batter Borussia

Over the next 20 years, #FCBayern very much took control of this fixture, losing to #BVB only six times between 1968 and 1988.

In November 1971, Gerd Müller scored four in an 11-1, Bayern's biggest ever #Bundesliga win.

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.

Borussia Dortmund 2019/20 accounts cover a season when they once again finished second behind Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga and reached the Champions League last 16. However, COVID-19 meant it was “an unprecedented, difficult and challenging year.” Some thoughts follow #BVB
#BVB went from €22m profit before tax to €47m loss (€44m after tax), mainly due to profit on player sales falling €43m to €40m. Despite the COVID restrictions, revenue was basically flat at €379m, but operating expenses rose €25m and net interest payable was €2m higher.
The only #BVB revenue item to decrease was match operations, down €12m (27%) to €33m, but the pandemic restricted growth in broadcasting, up €3m (1%) to €170m, commercial, up €10m (6%) to €168m, and other operating income, up €1m to €9m.

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.

Bayern Munich vs. PSG.

Qatar-sponsored vs. Qatar-owned.

Think it’s as good a time as any to remind ourselves what’s behind the football.

The #Qlassico, human rights and sportswashing, the Bayern Munich angle. (Thread 1/17)

Following a few requests, I’ve prepared financial fact sheets for some international football clubs. This is not new information as such, but a summary of previous data. This thread covers #FCBarcelona, #RealMadrid, #Juventus, #Milan, #Inter, #ASRoma, #FCBayern, #BVB & #PSG
#FCBarcelona 2019 revenue surged 23% to €852m, the highest in the world, due to taking merchandising in-house and new Champions League deal. First club with wage bill over €500m. Profits 8 years in a row, but increasingly reliant on player sales. Debt & transfer spend shot up.
#RealMadrid revenue flat in 2019, but lower wages and €99m profit from player sales resulted in €53m pre-tax profit, the highest in Spain (though posted €44m operating loss). Financial debt down to €83m. Revenue will be boosted in 2019/20 after taking merchandising in-house.

Thread: #Ultras sind die, die quasi permanent dafür einstehen, dass der Fußball NICHT einzelnen Personen gehört und nur deren Interessen vertreten werden.
Ultras fordern die Stärkung d. eingetragenen Vereine. Mehr Demokratie, weniger Macht für Typen wie Hoeneß, weniger Korruption
Hoeneß und Co sind NICHT für Kooperation. Sie diskreditieren, spalten und sperren aus, wenn Gruppen oder Einzelpersonen gefährlich werden könnten.
Da gibt's dann ein von #Rummenigge persönlich unterzeichnetes unbefristetes Hausverbot für einen Kritiker der Geschäfte mit Katar.
Fussball ist ohne Ultras möglich, auch ohne Hoeneß. Sogar ohne Ball. Nicht wenige Menschen auf der Welt kick(t)en mit Plastikflaschen oder selbstgebastelten ballähnlichen Sachen. War und ist geil.
Hoeneß` Aussage hat keinen Wert, sie soll spalten. Mehr nicht.

Bayern Munich's ultra scene is one of the most engaged when it comes to fighting homophobia, sexism, antisemitism, human rights.

I find it genuinely worrying that a protest for fan rights results in a crackdown on them, and you should be, too.

Fan culture analysis thread.
Bayern Munich’s ultra scene, especially Schickeria, their biggest ultra group, have been acknowledged (including by the DFB itself) in the past for their engagement against discrimination, for human rights in Qatar and for Holocaust remembrance.
Thanks to Bayern Munich’s ultra scene, & Schickeria in particular, we know about Kurt Landauer, #FCBayern’s Jewish president, who was practically forgotten before they raised awareness to his legacy by looking into their club’s past.

Here’s their choreo in memory of Landauer.

UEFA have now published the final payments to clubs for 2018/19 European competitions. In the following thread, I will first look at the Champions League distribution, then the Europa League and finally payments by country (with a focus on the Big Five leagues).
In 2018/19 each of 32 clubs qualified for Champions League group stage got €14.5m plus €2.7m for a win and €900k for a draw. Additional prize money for each further stage reached: last 16 €9.5m, quarter-final €10.5m, semi-final €12m, final €15m and winners €19m.
#FCBarcelona had the highest 2018/19 Champions League payment of €118m, but English clubs received four of the top six distributions: winners #LFC €111m, runners-up #THFC €102m, #MUFC €93m and #MCFC €93m. #Juventus were 4th with €96m and #PSG 7th with €86m.

Bayern Munich 2018/19 accounts cover a mixed season. Domestically, they won the Bundesliga for the 7th season in a row, securing the league and cup double for the 12th time. However, they crashed out of the Champions League in the last 16. Some thoughts follow #FCBayern
#FCBayern profit before tax increased from €46m to €75m (profit after tax €52m). Revenue (per Bayern’s definition) rose €93m (14%) to €750m including €90m profit on player sales. The board described the figures as “outstanding”, as both revenue and profit set record highs.
Excluding player sales, #FCBayern revenue rose €31m (5%) from €629m to €660m, mainly due to TV, up €34m (20%) to €211m, though commercial was also up €8m (2%) to €357m. On the other hand, match day down €11m (11%) to €92m. Profit on player sales €62m higher at €90m.
