Nottingham Forest lost £390,000 a week in 2017/18 & needed player sales and loan write offs to reduce losses #NFFC
Nottingham Forest total losses now £146 million and would be touching £200m except for loan write offs from various owners #NFFC
Forest paid £122 in wages for every £100 of income, which is lowest wage/income ratio for six years #NFFC
Forest’s main income sources matchday sales and broadcasting (inc Premier League solidarity payments) #NFFC
Forest signed players for £6.6m in 2017/18 and had sales of £13.2 million #NFFC
Forest owe the owners quite a lot but much of the debt was converted into shares or written off in 2017/18 #NFFC
If you want to lose a lot of money buy a Championship football club as Forest have averaged losses of £400,000 a week in recent years #NFFC
In no other business than Championship football would business owners pay out more in wages every year than they generate in income #NFFC
Mainly due to parachute payments Forest are in the bottom half of income generators in the Championship #NFFC
Forest are mid-table in the Championship when it comes to wages. #NFFC
Over half the clubs in the Championship spend more on wages than they generate in income so Forest not alone and below rivals Derby #DCFC . Special mention of Harry Redknapp for his 'triffic' performance at Birmingham City last year to put them top of this table #NFFC #KRO
Overall income in Championhip was £690 million and wage bill £673 million, which doesn't leave much to mow the pitch and switch on the floodlights
Every club in the Championship had operating losses last season totalling £407 million...and this is with FFP supposedly restraining overspending. Forest again mid table #NFFC
Forest spending very modest by Championship standards last season. Few fans would realise they spent less than the likes of Barnsley #NFFC
