As expected today the Premier League have released their final figures for season 2017-218.
And with Newcastle finishing 10th we got £123,018.207 – just over £123M – which is close to what we expected.
That was the 8th highest payout in the Premier League and credit to Rafa Benitez and our players for that.
Newcastle were shown live 19 times on local TV and we received just over £21M for that in facility fees.
Rafa Benitez – seems happy enough
We got only £26M less than the two Manchester clubs – which is not too bad.
West Ham got just over £116M – Rafa please note.
Here are the final payouts from the Premier League for the season just finished.
If Mike Ashley gave Rafa half of that and with the incoming transfer fees he could get (about £40M) Rafa would have£100M to spend in the summer.
What wrong with that?
It will be increasingly difficult for Ashley to say Newcastle lack money now.
We earned £47M last year from the leagues (£7M Championship plus £40M parachute payment. from PL) so that’s £76M more than last year.
Again well done Rafa and our players!
