#CelticFC 2021/22 accounts cover a season when they regained the Scottish Premiership title under new manager Ange Postecoglou and also won the League Cup, but were eliminated from the Europa League after the group stage.
#CelticFC swung from £11.5m pre-tax loss to £6.1m profit (£5.8m after tax), as revenue rose £27m (45%) from £61m to £88m and profit on player sales increased £20m from £9m to club record £29m, partly offset by £25m (29%) higher operating expenses and no repeat of £5m insurance.
Main reason for #CelticFC revenue increase was match day, which rose £22m (107%) from £21m to £43m, due to the return of fans to the stadium, while commercial grew £3m (11%) to £32m in a more normalised trading environment and broadcasting was up £2m (18%) to £13m.

In advance of football clubs starting to publish their accounts for the 2021/22 season, I thought it might be helpful to share some 2-page financial overviews for each of the Premier League clubs for 2020/21, including a comparison against prior year and a 5-year graphical trend.
These overviews also include Premier League rankings for each of the main financial categories, e.g. which club had the highest profit, loss, revenue, wages, debt, transfer spend, etc in 2020/21.
One caveat with these figures is that revenue was significantly impacted by COVID in 2020/21 with match day reduced to almost zero, as games were played behind closed doors, while some broadcasting income was deferred from 2019/20 for matches played after the accounting close.

Let’s make ID’s for everyone. Like an artist? Make em an ape. You inna gang? Brand yourselves up (but pls don’t kill anybody). Who’s gonna start making apes for sports teams? Which football club is gonna be the first to represent their supporters as apes?! …
I’m a proud supporter of @CPFC. Our chairman is hands down the baddest ass chairman in the @premierleague. This is a man who never actually set out to be an owner of a football club but life has a funny way of working out…
A few back #CPFC we’re going through some trouble and were hours away from bankruptcy. @CEO4TAG never actually wanted to buy Crystal Palace but he sure as hell wouldn’t sit back and watch it burn 🔥 to the ground…

In football money often talks, i.e. success on the pitch is almost invariably reserved for clubs that have spent the most on wages and transfer fees. However, it might be interesting to see which clubs have performed the best (and indeed worst) relative to their budget.
This thread will therefore look at how teams in the Premier League in 2021/22 performed relative to their wages, combined wages/player amortisation and squad cost. This is not an exact science, but just a bit of fun, as there are a few caveats to an analysis of this type.
First, I have used financial figures from the most recent published accounts, i.e. from 2020/21, so these are a year out of date compared to 2021/22 league position. Moreover, the last figures available for the 3 promoted clubs are from the Championship, so are under-stated.

Stoke City’s 2020/21 accounts covered a season when they finished 14th in the Championship under manager Michael O’Neill, one place better than the previous season, but the third year in a row they have finished in the bottom half of the table. Some thoughts follow #SCFC
#SCFC pre-tax loss narrowed from £88m to £10m, despite revenue falling £10m (19%) from £50m to £40m and profit on player sales decreasing £2m to £1m, as they made £33m profit on the sale of stadium and training ground. Operating expenses down £55m (39%). Loss after tax was £8m.
As a technical aside, these figures relate to Stoke City Holdings Ltd. The pre-tax loss in the football club was much higher at £43m, mainly because those accounts do not include the £33m profit from the sale of the stadium and training ground.

Crystal Palace’s 2020/21 financial results covered a season where they finished 14th in the Premier League for the second year in a row in a campaign “enormously impacted” by COVID. Manager Roy Hodgson replaced by Patrick Vieira in July 2021. Some thoughts follow #CPFC
#CPFC pre-tax loss narrowed from £58m to £40m, despite revenue falling £8m (6%) from £142m to £134m, due to profit on player sales increasing from £1m to £10m and expenses falling £17m (8%), mainly due to a change in the accounting date (two fewer months).
Main driver of #CPFC revenue fall was COVID, which led to reductions in gate receipts, down £8m (97%) to just £247k, and commercial, down £4m (20%) from £21m to £17m. Partly offset by TV money rising £4m (4%) from £113m to £117m, mainly due to broadcasters’ rebate in prior year.

🧵 I try to watch as much of the Chelsea Loanees as I can, but I can't watch every minute, so I reached out to one fan of every club with a Chelsea Loanee, to get the best opinion on their season...

Here we go: [A THREAD] 🪡
Nathan Baxter: 8.5/10

After starting as 2nd choice, Baxter came in & solidified a nervy defence.

Natural communicator, good with his feet & excellent shot-stopper, Baxter quickly became a fan favourite.

His ball playing ability, short & long, was crucial to our system. #hcafc
Nathan Baxter (continued): 8.5/10

Baxter has a great future.

He has the potential to become Chelsea No. 1 in the future, but I’m not sure how long he will wait. #CFC

He seems very ambitious & he wants to play. If he found the right club, I think he'd leave his boy hood team.

A year ago 12 clubs announced a European Super League (ESL) before fan protests led to a humiliating climbdown just days later. However, the factors that drove the 12 clubs to this deeply unpopular move largely remain. It’s still all about money: a combination of fear and greed.
There is little doubt that many of the 12 Super League clubs continue to face serious financial problems. To some extent, this helps explain why the “dirty dozen” would seek more revenue, but that certainly does not excuse their horribly ill-conceived plan.
It is somewhat ironic that these clubs lamented the perilous state of their finances while simultaneously claiming that they had all the answers. Their argument that the Super League would somehow benefit the wider football family should also be taken with a large pinch of salt.

#WatfordFC 2020/21 financial results covered a season when they finished 2nd in the Championship, securing immediate promotion back to the Premier League. Head coach Vladimir Ivic was replaced by Xisco, since succeeded by Claudio Ranieri and Roy Hodgson. Some thoughts follow.
Despite impact of relegation and COVID, #WatfordFC pre-tax loss reduced from £36m to £22m, even though revenue fell £63m (52%) from £120m to £57m, as profit on player sales shot up from £18m to £56m and expenses were cut £35m (21%). Other income included £2.5m insurance claim. Image
Main driver of #WatfordFC revenue decrease was broadcasting, down £45m (48%) from £95m to £50m, as TV deal is much more lucrative in the Premier League, though also big falls in commercial, down £13m (76%) from £17m to £4m, and match day, down £5.7m (78%) to £1.6m. Image

#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.

Queens Park Rangers 2020/21 financial results covered a season when they finished a creditable 9th under Mark Warburton, their highest in the Championship since 2013/14, though the campaign was badly disrupted by COVID. Some thoughts in the following thread #QPR
#QPR pre-tax loss narrowed from £16.4m to £4.5m, despite revenue falling £3.8m (21%) from £18.3m to £14.5m, as profit on player sales rose £11.7m to £17.6m and there was no repeat of prior year’s £4.5m write-off of previous training ground development.
#QPR £3.8m revenue reduction was entirely due to the COVID driven £3.8m fall in match day income from £4.0m to just £207k. Broadcasting rose £0.1m (2%) to £8.6m, including iFollow streaming income, while commercial was flat at £5.8m, thanks to furlough payments.

Four Premier League clubs have now published their accounts for the 2020/21 season and it may surprise to many fans that two of them managed to increase their revenue in a season so badly impacted by the pandemic. This thread will explain the reasons, which are mainly technical.
West Ham reported significant (38%) revenue growth from £140m to £193m, while Chelsea also increased revenue by 7% from £407m to £435m. The other clubs saw relatively small revenue falls: Manchester United from £509m to £494m (3%) and Tottenham Hotspur from £392m to £360m (8%).
As almost all games were played behind closed doors without fans in 2020/21, match day income took a real pasting, with substantial reductions across the board: #THFC down from £95m to £2m, #MUFC from £90m to £7m, #CFC from £54m to £8m and #WHUFC from £23m to £1m.

#CelticFC 2020/21 accounts cover a “most difficult financial year”, badly impacted by COVID. Also disappointing on the pitch, as they finished runners-up in the league, were knocked out of both domestic cup competitions in early stages and eliminated after Europa League group.
#CelticFC swung from £0.1m pre-tax profit to £11.5m loss (£12.6m after tax), as revenue fell £9m (13%) from £70m to £61m and profit on player sales fell £15m from £24m to £9m, partly offset by £5m other income (business interruption coverage) and £9m (9%) reduction in expenses.
#CelticFC revenue “attrition” was driven by match day, which dropped £15.0m (42%) from £35.8m to £20.8m, and broadcasting, down £2.4m (18%) from £13.7m to £11.3m, though the net effect was eased by commercial, which rose ££7.9m (38%) from £20.8m to £28.7m.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant adverse impact on football clubs, though it is important to distinguish between money that has been completely lost to the game and income that has simply been deferred. This thread will analyse what this means for the Premier League.
Many clubs have listed the revenue impact of COVID-19 in their accounts, while others have not quantified the amounts. In the latter case, I have made assumptions consistent with those clubs who have provided figures in order to estimate the impact.
On the face of it, Premier League revenue held up quite well in 2019/20, though there were only 3 months impacted by the pandemic that season, as 4 clubs reported revenue above £400m (#MUFC £509m, #LFC £490m, #MCFC £478m & #CFC £407m), while all but one club was higher than £100m

Crystal Palace’s 2019/20 financial results covered a season which ended in “a relatively disappointing 14th place following a run of bad results after lockdown”, according to chairman Steve Parish. Financial results were adversely impacted by COVID-19. Some thoughts follow #CPFC
#CPFC swung from £5m pre-tax profit to £58m loss, mainly due to profit on player sales dropping from £46m to only £0.5m. Revenue fell £13m (8%) from club record £155m to £142m, partly due to COVID, while expenses increased £5m (2%), including an additional month.
Main driver of #CPFC revenue reduction was broadcasting, which fell £11.7m (9%) from £124.4m to £112.7m, while match day dropped £2.8m (19%) from £14.6m to £11.8m. However, commercial rose £1.4m (9%) from £16.4m to £17.8m. Note: this revenue split is from club’s Annual Review.
