This book dissects the performance of football clubs on the pitch and in the boardroom to explain why some are winners and some losers. The authors investigate the relationship between transfer policy, wage bills, attendance figures and playing success.
This text uses statistical and documentary evidence to illustrate how football works as a business, and the techniques of business strategy to explain why some clubs are winners and others are not. After a historical description of football's finances, the book moves to a contemporary analysis of the state of the game financially. Embedded in the text are various analyses of the modern English game including a league table of major teams that compares success on the field with that off the field since the war.
