Newcastle Receive Big Money From Premier League


Newcastle received £77,835,102 (approximately) from the Premier League for last season, and although we finished in 15th place in the Premier League, that figure is the 11th highest amount given out by the Premier League, and only about £2M less than we received last year when we were 10th.

Here is the full official list that has just been issued, and we have around £2M more than the provisional that was issued after the final game of the season in May.

Newcastle gained by being  shown on TV 20 times (the Facility Fee) , and a number of those games were when we were tumbling down the league table and under John Carver, and it ended up that Hull or Newcastle would be relegated from the Premier League on the last day of the season.

Fortunately for us it was Hull who went down, as we had a famous 2-0 win against West Ham.

The top money went to Chelsea,  the Premier League Champions, with just under £99M, and bottom club QPR got the least amount with just under £65M.

This should just about keep Newcastle United as one of the 20 richest football clubs in the world for this financial year.

And bottom line, there’s plenty of money to spend this summer.

The season after next is the new £5.1B Premier League three year TV deal, and the above amounts will rise by about 70% at that time.

Comments welcome.

    The blueprint (or greyprint) existed long before Charnley arrived.
    It took them to spell out in print what was blatantly obviously their modus operandi before anyone believed it. And many still don’t.
    Nothing Ashley said about “making our own luck from now on”, winnings things and maybe giving the cups a go hasn’t been said before. They say it every time season ticket deadline is needing to be extended.
    But you have to give them a chance to deliver, even if you believe they have no intention of doing so. So far the new leaf looks very much like the old leaf.
    Ashley.Out should have held their fire. talked peace and prepared for war.
    Having dismissed Ashley’s “conversion” out of hand as lies, they are in no position now to say “Come on Mike, we are waiting.”

    I said months ago that I thought Ashley regarded managers as a monkey tied to a greyhound’s back…ie…neither use nor ornament. Carver can get the players “fit ” for the kickabouts in America. And Charnley’s comment about head coaches having to “trust them” to eventually find replacement players when the price is right tells me that the head coach has no meaningful say at all. And Charnley made it clear that would be the case HOWEVER came in.

    JB,
    We arent even balance sheet champions though are we!! Spurs, Southampton, Everton and Man U made more than us. We only just beat Crystal Palace and Chelsea! Can’t even make the Champions league in the Balance Sheet table.

    Total myth that our finances are something the club can be proud of.

    BandB…I have been wondering what the point in hiring (and having to pay) for a new HC to come in just to send him on his holidays to America.

    As you say, JC can do that. I say wait. See how he gets on in the States. There’s no real rush and I’d hate to see us be wasteful with money after spending so long getting us in to this wonderful and healthy financial position to start creating our own luck.

    By not spending much I still have hope we can claw our way higher up the net profit table. Don’t lose faith yet.

    Agree, the blueprint is Ashley’s and Charnley is only the latest minion to be charged with enforcing it, and knowing what has gone before I can’t give them a chance to deliver, simply because all of the previous lie’s that have been forced upon us

    If people do by into the latest mound of PR bullshyte, then I fear I will loose all hope in humanity

    McLaren has the perfect credentials for the job. A safe unsafe pair of hands. He could not catch a cold. Takes Derby from top to 8th in 4 months in the Championship. Gets the sack at Derby. A perfect manager for the new ambitious Toon. Well done Penfold . Award yourself a 8 year contract coz you are playing a blinder.

    @BandB – exactly what I agree with. I have no doubt at all that fatty has nothing but jealousy and contempt for players and managers/coaches.
    His ownership has got nothing to do with Football nor football success. It’s a business for him, nothing else. We are nothing more than willing punters walking through the door of another version of a SD store.
    A HC/Manager is a store manager operating under strict guidelines designed to generate income/profit.

    Ibiza,
    I just feel you were getting too excited, and starting to get ambitions above your station. We don’t want to win things, as that will just make people like you expect us to win more. A terrible philosophy.

    We don’t want to make more profit, Lee has done a stand up job that we should offer him a pay rise, particularly as he now has to cover the role of Finance Director as well, don’t want any new board members coming in.

    On top of that, we should soon be in a position to oust Wonga, and give SD the shirt space as well, obviously for free, as our benevolent leader has been so supportive of the club, to the tune of a loan repayable on demand that is almost twice the debt the banks were owed.

    Glad you have reassessed what I was saying before the end of the season ie. a short list of demands that would hold Ashley to account.

    PLEASE STAND TOGETHER AND ASK HIM TO SELL.

    Lil…Well, that all sounds perfectly reasonable. I mean, Ashley did save us from implosion.

    It’s only fair that all those involved in saving the club are heavily rewarded. Especially SD.

    Thanks for putting me right. I was getting a little carried away there. I blame Butler. He’s a sneaky so and so.

    The minimum earnings from the Facility fees is £8,775,160 if the TV cameras were put off from SJP by regular half empty, library like stadiums, the club would lose nearly £7.5 million.

    We already have a top team primed for success. The tea boy, the comedian’s dad and the cones guy are running the football side of the club and don’t want anyone to muscle in on that and step on their toes. All we need now is someone to pick the team from the squad provided, give team talks, set tactics, make substitutions and front up to the press.

    how the hell have two people who have done nothing in football be able to wield such power of a football club.
    Charnley is obviously just an arse and Carr has achieved nothing of note and has never aspired to any level higher than the lower divisions..
    I put Carr in the same bracket as Kinnear.
    Might as well have Alan Carr – at least then we would know it was all a joke.
    The whole scenario is actually pitiful.
    Someone has told me to calm down and wait until there has been a CONFIRMED ANNOUNCEMENT and I suppose there is grain of truth in that.
    Trouble is rumours just sum up the state of NUFC.

    BandB,
    The model probably serves everyone involved with the club except the fans and the rank and file employees.

    Quite a few of the players are robbing a living, SD gets global exposure, Ashley gets tax breaks due to the clubs debt, the coaching staff wouldn’t be employed at any other decent level club, Charnley wouldn’t be able to direct traffic, let alone be a director elsewhere.

    I think it was protests and boycotts that accounted for Ashley’s television appearance.

    And his choreographed effort to appear both chastened and defiant will have repercussions. We’ve just seen with Blatter how quickly triumphalism can turn to defeat.

    You wanted the protests to stop while we wrote to the Fans Forum and the Football Ombudsman.

    I thought it was pointless paper-waving then and I still do.

    I never mentioned the protests stopping and my intention was to generate momentum through the closed season, which has very little chance of resurfacing until it is too late.

    On another note where was the great Mr Carr yestherday when Celtic signed Boyata from city for 1.5million? I might photo snap this post and keep it for 18months just to show Mr Carr when Boyatta will be signing for one of the big clubs for 10/15million. I thought Mr Carr’s job was to spot emerging talent on the cheap? Maybe he’s off spenting his time drinking coffee with McClaren talking shit while letting other clubs get the jump on nufc. # In Carr We Trust

    Every ST holder should have a box with buttons in order to vote on the starting line up, tactics and subs during the game. Your man can analyse the votes, come out with a consensus and implement it.

    I think demanding Ashley out is pointless, as it has been for 8 years and created the derision of many other fans nationwide. You are correct that the statement made by Ashley is an opportunity to ‘hang him’, but that is all about interpretation and easily swerved. Agreeing to a list of achievable and agreeable demands made in recognition of a full and vociferous stadium would have more leverage.
