#ReadingFC 2020/21 financial results covered a season when the #Royals finished 7th in the Championship, just missing out on the play-offs under Veljko Paunovic, since replaced by Paul Ince and Michael Gilkes (interim managers). Some thoughts in the following thread.
This was the fourth season that #ReadingFC were under the control of Chinese businessman Dai Yongge (and his sister Dai Xiu Li), who own 96% via Renhe Sports Management Co Ltd. However, in that time the club has struggled both on the pitch and with Financial Fair Play rules.
#ReadingFC loss narrowed from £42m to £36m, despite revenue dropping £4.0m (23%) from £17.8m to £13.8m and profit on player sales falling £0.9m to £0.7m, thanks to an £11.2m (18%) reduction in operating expenses from £61.3m to £50.2m.

Anytime #HarryandMeghan make news, there is a minority of accounts that rush to post hate & conspiracy theories in replies & comments on social Media

They are programmed to spread hate by use of paid trolls,bought bots & racist bigots determined to keep the Royal Family WHITE ImageImageImage
Advocacy group 'HopeNotHate' conducted a study showing 70%tweets came from 20 accounts
"The fact that such a small number of users generated such a large number of the tweets suggests that the accounts were created for the purpose of producing negative content about the duchess” ImageImageImage
Some of these anti-Meghan accounts have been know to open up to 80 different burner accounts to create an illusion that many people share their sentiments.

#ReadingFC 2018/19 financial results covered a season when the #Royals finished 14th in the Championship. Manager José Gomes was replaced in October 2019 by Mark Bowen, who has since been succeeded by Veljko Paunovic. Some thoughts in the following thread.
This was the third season that #ReadingFC were under the control of Chinese businessman Dai Yongge (and his sister Dai Xiu Li), who own 96% via Renhe Sports Management Co Ltd. Bowen said, “He has spent a hell of a lot of money on the club and still wants to spend money.” Image
#ReadingFC loss increased from £30m to £42m, largely due to no repeat of prior year’s £8m from sale of the training ground and £2m other operating income. Revenue dropped £3m (16%) from £21m to £18m, while profit on player sales fell £0.8m to £1.6m. Expenses cut £2m (3%). Image

Thread on the racist trolling on royal twitter: On and off social media, racists, bigots & trolls don't need applause to keep doing what they do, silence is enough. 1/4 #Royals #royalfamily #harryandmeghan
It's why you hear the tremble in their voices despite their volume when they're screaming abuse at someone on public transport but somebody courageous decides in that moment they won't cringe in silence and let it go on. 2/4
This is why I get so frustrated when journalists especially say "I don't respond so I don't give it oxygen.". By not responding, you give them something worse than oxygen: legitimacy. They can act like what they do isn't egregious. They only need silence to carry on. 3/4

The best (and worst) feature of every ballpark (thread).

Going west to east. In progress until complete. Image
Best: Dodger Stadium's seating color scheme was designed to mimic the beach and ocean. #Dodgers Image
Worst: Dodger Stadium. Getting there doesn’t count. Never liked the massive parking lot, though it was enhanced with the outfield pavilion renovation this year. ImageImage

#ReadingFC 2018/19 financial results covered a season when the #Royals finished 20th in the Championship for the second consecutive year. Manager Paul Clement was replaced in December 2018 by José Gomes, who was in turn succeeded by Mark Bowen October 2019. Some thoughts follow.
This was the second season that #ReadingFC were under the control of Chinese businessman Dai Yongge (and his sister Dai Xiu Li), who own 95% via Renhe Sports Management Co Ltd. Bowen said, “He has spent a hell of a lot of money on the club and still wants to spend money.”
#ReadingFC loss increased by £9m from £21m to £30m, despite revenue rising £3m (18%) from £18m to £21m, and increases in profit on player sales (up £1m to £2m) and property disposals (up £2m to £8m). In contrast, other operating income fell £8m to £2m and expenses were up £7m.

Reading had an operating loss of £40.6m in 2018/19, which is after taking into account £1.7m of management charge income to another group co & £3m loan fee for Sone Aluko to a club controlled by Reading owners. Without these losses would have been over £45m #Royals
Reading reduced losses to ‘just’ £30m through player disposals & selling training ground to club owners for £13m at a profit of over £8m. The previous season Reading did similar with the Majedski Stadium. #Royals
Reading did not receive any cash for the sale of the training ground, it was offset against the sum due to owners, who put in £28m of shares and increased loans by £6.5m #Royals

Good day all! We have new research this morning about the Royals... do Canadians want to pay Harry & Meghan's security costs? Do we even want to carry on as a constitutional monarchy? Follow along as I walk you through the findings. #RoyalFamily #Mexit
To begin, you can read the report in full, access data tables, and read the questionnaire here: angusreid.org/harry-meghan-c…
So, first, to the big ballot questions... how do Canadians feel about the prospect of a partial relocation to this country by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex? Contrary to much of the breathless reporting, we're pretty "meh" about the whole thing: #RoyalFamily #Mexit Image

Parachute payments are made to clubs relegated from the Premier League in order to soften the blow of the significant reduction in revenue in the Championship, especially as many players’ wages remain at a high level. The following thread looks at how these payments work.
It is evident that parachutes have a major impact on the competitive balance in the Championship, as the 6 clubs with the highest revenue in 2016/17 all benefited from these payments, most notably the 3 relegated the previous season: #NUFC £86m, #NCFC £75m & #AVFC £74m.
Eight Championship clubs received Premier League parachute payments in 2016/17 with #NUFC, #AVFC and #NCFC getting £41m (up from £26m in 2015/16 thanks to the new TV deal), followed by #QPR £31m, then #CardiffCity, #FFC, #Royals & #WAFC, all £16m.
