      This financial stat has been used by all sides,(so called "happy clappers and cynics and inbetweeners) to support the view that we are shite,over achieving,par for the course and whatever arguement comes inbetween each view.If you accept that 6th highest wages or spending means nowadays we probably should finish 6th or if you believe we should be finishing top4 challenging for the title regardless of money,then here is a nice video on spurs finances.


      Personally I believe what you spend is relative to your position to an extent,& not AN EXCUSE for not having a run at the title or being top 4-But if we do like last year (finish 3rd) I feel that we have exceeded where we probably should finish,not that I ever start a season aiming for 6th. However,I do feel it is harsh if sackings are being called for,for merely finishing 6th,after all that is the resources being given to the manager vs our peers.
      The continued dominace of money the last decade with city,chavs and Utd proves one side and yet leics and an extent our own fairytale also proves that money isnt everything.

      Or possibly have we reached a plateau now,where most PL clubs have enough money to compete more evenly on the pitch if not on the stock market?I mean 40k a week should buy you a decent player if you choose wisely,300k pw for rooney or 80k for Kane,who is the better player is just a debate cos they are both on their day top international players,yet Kane is almost £1million a month cheaper.Staggering.And proof we can dream a bit of beating the "big boys".

      lots of reports and claims,not the most comprehensive finacial reporting.Guess when you quote the mail thats to be expected.
      http://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2016/09/1...&utm_source=twitter&utm_content=HITCtottenham

      A report in the Daily Mail has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur are hoping to pocket around £100m in the build-up to their move into their new stadium.
      Mauricio Pochettino's men plan to move into their new home at the beginning of the 2018-19 season, after a campaign spent at Wembley.
      And the Mail reports that their arrival into the 61,000-seat stadium could be celebrated with a considerable boost to their finances as they expect to rake in around £100m from sponsorship deals, including the stadium naming rights contract.
      And it appears that they will have no problem earning that amount of money, as the Mail claims that as many as 400 companies have been alerted by the potential deals.he money that they are hoping to make, as well as the improved facilities, should surely ensure that Spurs become regular title contenders and help them establish themselves in the Champions League.he new stadium may boost their chances of attracting better players to the club, and the cash-injection should give them the funds to compete with both the domestic and European heavyweights.

      The difference in tv revenue between us and the other 5 is not that great in the grand scheme of things, and in some cases ours has been slightly greater in the last few seasons. That leaves anywhere between £100 and £200 million to make up with match day and commercial revenue. With the difference between us and Utd in match day being around £50 million currently it's glaringly obvious that the biggest difference between us and them lot is commercial income.
      So, whilst the new stadium will bring an increase in our income, but also an increase in our overheads, what signs are there that the commercial income gap can be bridged?

      I think the new stadium having the NFL there will help make us a much better prospect for a stadium sponsor, along with the cash (£10 mil a yer I think!?) from NFL too. Plus there will be 61,000 yiddo's, buying tickets, eating pies, and drinking beers!
