You are basing it off of false revenue reporting.The top in the Premier league pre pandemic was 84.9%.
The top from the richer clubs that I referred to was 58.4%.
Even with the short term impact of the pandemic of revenue, still pretty healthy.
Despite the bullshit revenue reporting, City posted a loss of how much last year? approx £160m? We can safely triple or quadruple that to get the real answer.
Have a look at Liverpool if you want to see how a club without bucketless underwriters are forced to operate despite the record TV revenues. Barely spent over the previous few seasons and look completely skint compared to their competitors who continue to rack up debt.
Everyone takes the piss out of Levy, but he's running a club in excess of £1b in debt, yet fans expect him to unload £200m+ every transfer window to keep up with the Jones'.
I'll trust some previous EPL owners who have all said the game is financially broken, EPL clubs are broke and running under broken financial models. "Pretty Healthy"? PMSL.
The only entity making an absolute killing out of the modern era revenue increases are the players. Fans are getting price gouged, clubs are bordering bankruptcy, the football league is f’ed, all the while players and agents are making 8 and 9 figure salaries.
