You're sixth, that's nice. Here in Portugal it has been a shitshow because of Benfica's decisive defeat in yet another european title.
Not that one.....

-€19m more in operating costs than Juventus
-Third-worst operating loss in the top 20 leagues
-Second-worst bottom line loss (beaten only by Inter) in the top 20 leagues

People know about financial problems at clubs like Valencia, they don't realise quite how bad our own situation is. That single graph for net debt puts United top but they have revenue streams we could only dream of that counteract it and allow them to spend big.

It is a great PDF from an analytical and presentation perspective.

Ah, I see. It's a time of taking risking, investing in the future, and while the present situation is not the best, steps have been taken to improve it over time.

Indeed, absolute values hardly hold any value other than hierarchize teams by "size". For an actual indicator of the team's financial health and stability we have to look for the relative values.

Seriously well done, my first time looking at it (supposedly it's the 8th iteration of this report) and was very surprised.

Made a Swansea summary for /r/swanseacity, this is what came out.

Just F3'd for Swansea and the following came up:

- 28th in terms of revenue (p.71). In FY2015 Swansea had a revenue of €137m, which is increasing an average of €20m per FY, this is, 17% per FY.

- Inside that top 30 mentioned above, Swansea are 8th in terms of relative revenue growth, and 16th in terms of absolute revenue growth

---

- Next is broadcast revenues (of course; p.75). Swansea sit in a unbelievable 9th place with €112m, more than Juventus, PSG, Atlético Madrid and all the german clubs. This value is increasing 22% per season (Shoutout to Leicester who saw a **1677%** increase).

- From that table you can clearly see that Premier League's broadcast revenues are pretty much evenly distributed, with the top earning club earning just 1.3 times the average for the league (by comparison, 3.9 times in Spain and 2.2 times in Italy).

- Now the worrying part. Those €112m make up **82%** of the club's revenue, the biggest percentage inside the top 20 mentioned above.

---

- Final mention is in the wages section (p.92). Swansea are 19th in terms of wages paid, with €110m, which make up for worrying **80%** of the total revenue (league average of 61%). This is, pretty much all of the broadcasting revenue goes directly to the wages tab. Despite this Swansea spend just 0.8 times the league average on wages (€134.5m, which is almost **twice** the average for the 2nd most spending league, Bundesliga with €69.5m).

- Wages have been increasing 46% per year, by far the biggest relative increase in the top 20 mentioned above.
