How much has Rads put in to buy and run the club for last 2 seasons?

We know we have turned over in excess of £50m per season, that equals £100m. He has had up to £35m in in transfers, Wood, Viera, Saiz ( and Taylor? ). He has had £12m from the 49'rs. Add to this the £25m debt he has used as well. that's in the region of £170m, Without adding in any of Rads funds mentioned as part of his original investment. Reportedly these funds included money to buy the club £40m, the ground £20m and £20m transfer kitty, a total of £80m. This all adds up to over £250m. Bought the club for £40m and the ground £20m that's £60m .

That leaves over £190m. There has not been massive investment in the playing squad ( Our biggest outlay has been a £200k fine from the EFL, ! ) . The average wage of £20k a week is £1m year for a squad of 22, that's about £22m plus management and U23's allow £8m to £10m. So say £65m over 2 seasons. Based on the above there is no reason why we should have any money worries, unless some of the above is incorrect, there appears to be about £100m shortfall in my figures?

Guess you are NOT an accountant.

Where on earth did you get those figures from?

Sorry, I now realise you are a creative accountant!

Met a few of those in my life, thank goodness.

I think I'll wait for the club accounts :) also you forgot the purchase of ER, policing costs, the no-playing staff wages, business rates for ER and Thorp Arch, the upkeep of the aforementioned, owners and directors salaries, I'll stop now, Alzheimers kicking in ;)

28 Feb 2019 15:06:55
Massive investment in u23s
Issuing of longer contracts
Recruitment of more backroom staff. We now have a Dr pitchside thankfully
It’s not just the stuff in the papers

The whole club is on a better footing than it was under certain previous chairmen.

Phil Hay tweeting that Roofe is having a scan on his knee tomorrow.
Maybe not fake news! 😱.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Feb 2019 14:43:18
But to have him walking around Leeds with a brace on before his scan and before any news has been released to anyone. Seems a bit weird!

16 Feb 2019 20:30:11
Roofe spotted in Leeds with a brace on his leg, hopefully nothing serious, but doesn't look good. One thing I will say, with the unbelievable amount of injuries we have had this season we have done brilliant to still be right up there, and the Manager has never moaned once he has just got on with it.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Feb 2019 21:44:05
A lot of doubt about this sighting, might well be an old photo from a previous injury posted to cause mischief. Would appear a bit weird for news of a serious injury to be broken first by a player walking through the city with an obvious injury!

16 Feb 2019 21:49:09
Don't tell me you fell for it :) Mr Roofe was actually out Audi shopping today.

16 Feb 2019 23:20:12
Two days ago he posted a photo on IG with the hashtag #comebackstronger. I thought that sounded like a subtle injury hint and now this claim. I think he’s been off form for a while now and could do with a rest, but is still concerning if true.

17 Feb 2019 10:38:04
Yes I fell for it, we have had enough bad injuries for one season. Hopefully everybody will stay healthy for the run in.

17 Feb 2019 11:27:16
He also uploaded a photo to his Instagram account with his leg in a brace . So don’t be so sure it’s a hoax . Guess we will find out tomorrow if true .

16 Feb 2019 19:09:24
Hearing a rumour Roofe out for season with ligament damage. A photo on social media in a leg brace. Some saying it could be an old photo?

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi Danum. Just typed a post to same effect. Crossed in the post type scenario. Like you, I dunno what to make of it.

16 Feb 2019 21:08:18
If it's true then it's a good job Bamford and Brown are both back up and running.

13 Feb 2019 22:28:53
Have been out of the country for most of the season so only attended first game tonight. Why are we not singing Bielsa's name constantly? He is the single reason we are where we are. We need to be showing how much we love him like Newcastle fans did with Benitez.

Agree4 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 05:04:29
He don't want the love until it's sealed. He said as much.

13 Feb 2019 22:06:03
Why are we chasing Daniel James. He was very ordinary tonight.

Agree2 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 00:14:56
Bielsa can turn ordinary looking players into great ones if they have the attributes he is looking for. James is ridiculously quick, Bielsa can work with the technical bits. Just need to make sure we don’t overpay for him.

14 Feb 2019 05:07:12
Good post Ali. He'll be worth just half the £12m in the summer due to his contract being closer to termination. Swans need the money, Jenks is out the way and James probably won't renew.

14 Feb 2019 08:18:06
He needs to get Sacko back and work his magic on him then ;-)

14 Feb 2019 08:59:15
Poor lad probably wanted to be in a white shirt

Imagine you’re offered a night with angelina jolie then at the last minute brad says no.

The bbq you’re all at two weeks later is going to be awkward

Same thing.

{Ed001's Note - erm he does play in a white shirt at Swansea mate. Just thought I should point that out....}

14 Feb 2019 11:49:23
Dammit Ed, you beat me to it 😊.

{Ed001's Note - sorry AL, I had a George moment of pedantry!}

14 Feb 2019 12:51:07
Ed001 Nowt wrong with that! I adore pedantry. Can anyone tell? 😆 Enjoy your day Ed001 and Staffy.

{Ed001's Note - I had not noticed mate....}

14 Feb 2019 15:38:04
I was going to say that pedants rule but George would get all pedantic and find issue with it 😁.

13 Feb 2019 22:03:47
Well what a stat that is. When we have scored first we have won 14 out of 14 games, nuff said!

Agree4 Disagree0

09 Feb 2019 23:55:29
According to the national media Liverpool want Clarke and Everton want Bielsa. Can do without the Scousers stealing our best stuff.

Agree3 Disagree0

10 Feb 2019 11:35:44
I was wondering how long it would be before some poor "journalist" would come up with Milner plus cash for Jack Clarke, dream on 🤣🤣🤣.

10 Feb 2019 18:38:22
I want angelina jolie

Can’t see either happening tbh.

{Ed025's Note - i still dream about her in that tomb raider get up woody..

10 Feb 2019 19:05:05

Stop drooling. It doesn't become you.

{Ed025's Note - i just cant help myself mate..

10 Feb 2019 19:45:56
Angelina? been there, done that. My mate Brad gives me all his hand-me-downs 😉😁😁😁.

{Ed025's Note - sloppy thirds works for me AL..

10 Feb 2019 21:32:10

11 Feb 2019 18:44:18
I saw a picture of Angelina in a Leeds shirt once.

12 Feb 2019 02:19:57
And then woke to a full morning glory Grayson.
Been there done it. 👋💦💦

12 Feb 2019 16:07:40
Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston, a Leeds scarf to share and me in t' middle, true story 😁😁😁.

13 Feb 2019 19:05:52
sounds like a half and half scarf AL.

{Ed025's Note - sounds like the perfect arizona sandwich to me alf..

14 Feb 2019 02:15:57
It made me go arf arf that's for sure ;)

06 Feb 2019 13:27:05
Ashton Hall. Central defender on trial. One for future.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Feb 2019 13:43:16
Sounds like a good lad.

06 Feb 2019 18:53:12
Sounds like a training ground.

06 Feb 2019 19:06:31
I actually work Down Ashton hall drive in boston.

08 Feb 2019 23:23:25
Sounds like a tv costume drama!

09 Feb 2019 09:27:00
As a “Hall”, myself, he sounds amazing! 😀.

04 Feb 2019 21:59:27
In view of recent disappointments I hope MB, Orta and the team are taking time to identify as many game changers/ winners from the Championship as they can in the next few weeks. As he is so meticulous in his deliberations I hope he spends time poring over DVDs so that come the summer we can (depending on our situation) we can go after two or three top targets.

Agree2 Disagree0

05 Feb 2019 10:52:02
Should have been done in January.

06 Feb 2019 18:54:23
Done in January we are up.
