Newcastle Take £8.8M Revenue Hit This Season


We had decent revenues for the last financial year of £93.3M, but it’s likely to take a drop in the financial year that finishes at the end of June.

Derek LLambias – could see revenues decline this season

Here’s how Newcastle revenues have looked over the last five years, with the big drop coming when we were relegated in 2009, when the revenues fell by around £34M.

newcastle revenues

We have finished in 16th place this season which is 11 places lower than last season, and since each place is worth around 800K, then we’ll be getting £8.8M less for our Premier League place this season compared to last season.

And that will probably manifest itself in having lower revenues this financial year than last.

We just about made the top 20 football clubs based on revenue last season, so it may be tough to make 20th place again.

Of course there will be increased revenues next season with the new Wonga deal – and hopefully we can finish a lot higher in the league table, and also have a couple of good cup runs in the FA Cup and the Capital One Cup.

And with the new massive three year TV deal starting next season, the money from TV is increased by around 70% – and we’re still in the Premier League so we’ll get some of that. 😀

    Didn’t know you spoke for Catchy.
    Are you suggesting riots on the West Road, pickets on Northumberland St or a boycott of the club by 50,000 people ?

    I think its the manager.

    He has spoilt tiote for me after telling him he gets too many yellows and needs to calm, down

    Tell me how many times your ideal line up matches up with his (Assuming Full fitness)

    Indian Magpie – Well he had a good crack at taking us down, so with more practice, I reckon division one would be very possible.

    The saving grace would be MA protecting his money by sacking him before it got that bad – at least I hope he would!!

    i think you will find fat ash and DL dont pick the team or make the subs
    yes they have both made mistakes , but they have provided a fantastic sqaud

    and yes i think ED and many others are clueless, but i know for a fact that its not a whole geordie nation as you say,

    For ED its about his blog page , crazy headlines get ppl ti visit,

    like i say , worse stats than jfk in a relegation season, and he still gets backing

    you know what , i could understand it more if the team wasnt backed by the crowd on match days, but every week they are,

    you can look at the players for there part or the manager but both poit to the manager not doing his job
    training , tacktics , or motovation, all lacking

    Indian… he defo didn’t connect well with his advice fro Tiote.. I am not sure he explained it to him correctly as he defo looks 1/4 the player he was… With a no-tackling Tiote – Cabaye had to do too much… look at him yesterday.. he was wrecked after 60 mins… wrecked… I dont understand it… maybe Carr needs to look out for stamina in these players he is scouting…

    I dont think there is anyway of making a change in this club at the moment… Pardew will go on the offensive at these radio phone-ins… he’ll say “its been tough… we werent enough of a fret” and that we will “do well next season – trust me…” Blah blah… blah….

    2 questions for Alan –

    1)Can you explain why you have no movement ahead of the half-way line.. ?
    2) And being so defensive – Can you explain how we have shipped 68 goals in 38 games?

    Any responsibility for this loss of revenue rests with the person responsible for the operation and financial success of the business – usually its managing director.

    Notwithstanding factors beyond the MD’s control, the finances of Newcastle United Football Club are based on success and that success has not materialised this last season. The MD usually has responsibility for the performance of his subordinates such as the Manager.

    Could it be time for Mr Llambias to stand up and face the music?

    I think the fact that we lost again yet no one booed or chanted “Pardew out” suggests that this blog is not representative of season ticket holders.

    An unidentified source has informed me that jonas knows a deep dark secret about pardew (he saw pardew do something) and so pardew has no other option but to budge to him. Which is why, without a game changing or game saving performance for over two years now, jonas can simply walk into the team when he pleases. And he is subbed only when opposition players spit on him and he needs an early bath.
    Its a mistake not firing pardew now because when he will be finally fired after picking 4 points from our first ten games next season, all the good managers will be employed elsewhere and he will be replaced by martin o’neill or mark hughes

    Repost:
    Unfortunately I think IF Pardew was going to be sacked it would have been done by now.

    Mike is obviously giving him the benefit after 1 over-achieving season and one almost catastrophic season-which you could arguably understand on balance but if it was my money I would have got shot immediately after the Arsenal game.

    We all saw enough of Pardews’ clangers this season to show he is out of his depth here and we need to change to move on.

    Stability is fine and all that but there’s nothing stable about fighting against relegation with a squad capable of fighting in Europe (“God help us” in Pardew’s own words).

    I find some solace in the fact that Pardew WILL be sacked if next season goes anything like this one and probably quite soon but by then it might be too late to persuade some of our star players that NUFC is where their futures lie.

    Do we wish Pardew has a crap season again just to get shot of him? Or do we hope he has a great season and look forward to another 6 years of his stewardship?

    Damned if we do and damned if we don’t eh?

    And thank god for that, Hatem!

    If half the stuff that gets said on here, was to filter through to SJP and the players, then we would’ve been relegated already.

    Hatem mate, of course Stone, Carver,and the Keeper coach don’t sit around playing cards and watching porn. They are far too busy having cooking competitions and darts competitions etc against each other that’s a fact its on NUFC website..I despair when we take corners or free kicks as they are completely devoid of any ideas.What are these coaches doing? I say get shot and a new bunch with new ideas brought in before we drift into obscurity.

    Yep, a great season is all I want as well mate, regardless of who gets it for us.

    I just want us to play with positivity and freedom and really go after matches. If Pardew can understand that attack IS the best form of defence then he’ll win half the battle with the fans anyway.

    Fingers crossed for a fantastic summer of incoming transfers and a quality pre-season to make it possible.

    as of next season i would definitely experiment with 5 at the back, that way we get our width and hba can have his inside role. a new cb required if colo goes

    —————-krul
    ——-taylor colo mbiwa
    Debuchy —anita—- Santon
    ——–sissoko—cabaye
    ——————HBA
    —————–Cisse

    not the best formatting but i think you get the general idea
