Annual Review of Football Finance Reveals Disturbing News

In an earlier article (Pssst, here’s £60m for your soccer team….. ) which I have posted in my blog, I alluded that the Beautiful Game is degenerating into something exclusive to people who have plenty of money to spare. An increasing number of Premiership clubs are being taken over by foreign hands: Manchester United are being owned by Americans, the same goes for both Liverpool and Aston Villa, West Ham United by Icelanders, Fulham by an Egyptian whose primary interests is in retail, Chelsea by a Russian with a personal fortune of £9 billion, who is obsessed with winning and can earn far more from his trade in oil and minerals. As of this writing, we even have the ex-Thai Prime Minister wanting a slice of the action by taking over the reins of Manchester City. Is the Premiership gradually becoming an expensive playground for the super-rich? I fear the answer is yes. And how true can this get, going by the latest annual review of soccer by one of the world’s top-four auditors Deloitte & Touche. The Deloitte Annual Review of Football Finance, released on 31 May 2007, revealed that the following startling financial facts:

1) The combined wages of the English Premier League is expected to surpass the £1billion mark for the first time ever since the competition was formally inaugurated in 1992 – 1993. The wages of the twenty teams rose to £854 million for season 2005 – 2006 compared to “merely” £168 million in 2005. Now isn’t it wonderful to be a soccer player instead of having a desk-bound job?

2) Wait, the rich pickings gets better for we can expect the first £200,000 a-week player in the EPL to emerge before 2010. Currently, the top earner in the Premiership is widely considered to be Ukrainian Andriy Shevchenko and German Michael Ballack (both Chelsea), whom each is believed to be banking at least £130,000 per week. I feel that even if you are proven players like them, you should only be getting a basic wage and the appropriate performance bonuses. Otherwise, soccer clubs will be forced to charge fans even higher ticket prices to keep up with the operating costs. This is the best measure to insulate the business when on-pitch results are not so rosy, and also help motivate and reward players and the management for winning.

3) The 20 clubs in the top division generated a total of £1.4 billion in turnover two seasons ago (2005 – 2006), a figure which is expected to go up to £1.8 billion for Season 2007 – 2008. I have reasons to suspect that the majority of these revenues came from the booming Asian economies, where the newly-rich are most willing to pay astronomical sums to catch their soccer heroes play “live” in off-season games.

4) Taking into account the money spent by teams in the lesser divisions in attempts to break into the Premiership, the total debts that have been taken on is an astonishing £2 billion. For next season, there will be in place a new 3-year TV deal worth £2.7 billion, which is widely to be a catalyst for wage inflation and for servicing such debts. The new TV revenue – including domestic and international rights – equates to about £300 million extra per season over the next 3 years. What I can see is it is going to be the turning of a vicious cycle: teams secure loans to enter the top division and earn more TV money, which is then used to service debts. And yet with reduced revenue, they will be forced to borrow heavily again.

Mark my words, the spiraling finances involved in the soccer scene will get out-of-hand one fine day. And the ones who will bear the brunt of the fall-out will be the fans themselves, as they are already being squeezed by soccer clubs to pay for higher ticket prices, more expensive jersey replicates, program sheets and even those who cannot afford a trip to the stadiums will not be spared – they are likely to be charged more for pay-per-view TV for “live” or even games which are broadcast delayed. Finally, I foresee that the ownership of more top-tier clubs will land into foreign hands. While these foreigners are generally super-rich and provide instant cash inflows, they may not represent the best interests of the soccer fraternity. After all, they are probably businessmen by nature. Who can guarantee that these clubs are not merely cash cows to be milked and the fans are not being taken for a nasty ride? It is obvious to me that the foreign owners have had considerable sporting success AS WELL AS financial gains. I feel that it is high time for the British government or even the highest governing body FIFA to step and start regulating such transactions before things get worse.

Shocking News From the Bible – Money Answers Everything!

Ecclesiastes 10:19 (New King James Version)

A feast is made for laughter,
And wine makes merry;
But money answers everything.

Many Christians and Non-Christians may be surprised to know that this passage is even in the Bible… but it is.

On the surface, it may sound “materialistic”, “worldly”, or “carnal”.

But notice that the scripture doesn’t say that money is the “right” or “complete” or “final” answer for everything. It simply and correctly says, “money answers everything”.

And isn’t it true that money answers everything?

In general, so many of the problems that we have in life can either be solved or made less stressful for us, by us either having more money, or better money management.

Let’s take a look for a second, and see if this isn’t true. Let’s look at a few areas that many of us are, or have been, confronted with in our daily lives:

Natural Disasters

When natural disasters occur, such as the horrible earthquake in Haiti, let me first say that we don’t know why God allows such terrible things to happen.

What we do know is that, even in the midst of miracles such as the amazing survival stories, that money is always needed to try to lessen the pain for survivors, get aid to them, and ultimately rebuild these communities, cities, states, and nations.

In this situation money is not the complete answer, but it definitely provides a much needed answer.

Marriages and Relationships

It’s no secret that many married and unmarried couples argue about, and often separate, breakup, or divorce over disputes about money. Usually this is the lack of money, or overspending by one or more parties.

A lack of money puts stress and strain on the entire family, as there are always mouths to feed, clothes to purchase, and other obligations such as health insurance, mortgage payments, and college tuition. The list of family expenses seems endless when there is not enough money to go around.

More money and/or better money management can usually provide a much needed answer or solution in these situations.

Church Work

It is a known fact that churches cannot operate without money. We know it’s a known fact, because the church leaders will often be quick to tell you that when it’s time to collect the offering;-)

It is often very ironic that the same church leaders who may spend a portion of, or an entire sermon telling you how UN-important money is in your life… will then turn right around and try to convince you how important it IS that you give as much money as you possibly can afford (or not) to the church.

It’s such a contradiction if we would really listen to what we are saying sometimes.

Yes, money is needed to finance the work of God in the world, so money is an “answer” in this area as well.

Conclusion

If we take a moment to think about it, we can see that the amount of money we have at our disposal affects each and every area of our lives. This the message we should take away from the passage “money answers everything”.

Yes, money does answer everything, whether it is providing aid for a natural disaster, feeding our families, paying for higher education, or financing the spread of the good news of Jesus Christ to all the world.

The sooner we embrace this financial truth, this “bible secret”, and stop fighting against it, then the sooner we will be able to adapt a mindset and lifestyle of financial abundance.
