Financial fair my ass.


This is but a small taste of the disparity between teams in the English Premiere League, this analysis is done by Transfermarkt.com and only evaluates the player worth on teams, it doesn’t take into account other factors ( sponsorships, attendance, brands, jersey sales, TV rights etc ). This is up to date as of Sept.1/2015

1 – Chelsea – 531.75 Million

2 – Manchester City – 480.85 Million

3 – Arsenal – 402.25 Million

4 – Manchester United – 377.25 Million

5 – Liverpool – 330.25 Million

6 – Tottenham – 288.00 Million

7 – Everton – 194.30 Million

8 – Southampton – 185.75 Million

9 – West Ham United – 165.00 Million

10 – Newcastle United – 157.50 Million

11 – Swansea – 129.25 Million

12 – Crystal Palace – 116.75 Million

13 – Stoke – 116.25 Million

14 – Sunderland 113.25 Million

15 – Aston Villa – 105.55 Million

16 – West Bromwich Albion – 93.50 Million

17 – Leicester City – 89.90 Million

18 – Watford – 82.5 Million

19 – Norwich City – 72.65 Million

20 – Bournemouth – 52.55 Million

No wonder its only a 6 man fight with these gaps. Financial fair play is trying to close the gap, however there are too many loop holes in the system and like baseball its far too late to impose a salary cap.
