    Well I’m not just saying this as a CIty fan, mind you. But going forward, would you rather be:

    1) Arsenal valued at 942.9m
    and
    2) Spurs valued at 436.3m

    or

    3) Chelsea at 510.5
    and
    4) City at 401.1

    Because I don’t think I’m too far out on a limb saying that in the near future the later 2 at combined value of 911.6 are going to bring more silverware in than the first 2 at combined 1,379 or so.

    If I could have any club’s financial situation it would be the rags. Even with their debt they have cash flow to cover it, worldwide GHB -ERRRRR, fans, etc.

    But past that, c’mon. Any day of the week I’ll take as an owner a Gulf State royal family with their hands on the world’s oil supply. Or a Bond Villain with a private army and skull-shaped fortress under the Siberian arctic ice (slight exaggeration there, but just slight)

    Well, Spurs own White Hart Lane. City doesn’t own the City of Manchester stadium. Real estate in London must help your valuation. Same with training grounds – probably a similar size, but real estate near London vs. Manchester.

    As for WBA vs. Everton… Once again, real estate could be a factor. Birmingham (depressed) vs. Liverpool (massively depressed) could be an issue. Everton’s debt situation and apparent inability to sell definitely is.

    so which teams are from “bigger markets” (NY, LA)? which teams are the San Antonio Spurs and OKC Thunders of the EPL? Which teams are located in areas with great weather (like Miami Heat or Orlando in florida)?

  4. Moonchester says:

    Actually, Man City DO own their stadium. (The Etihad Stadium)

    And don’t worry blues, once our amazing academy is up and running we’ll be the best club in the world producing the best players in the world.

    10-20 years and we’ll be the BEST.

    Easy.

      Are you sure of that? Source?

      I know Wiki is up and down, but it points out that MCFC is only the operator, not the owner of the Etihad (nee City of Manchester)stadium. Manchester City council is listed as the owner, which makes sense seeing as it was built for the Commonwealth games.
