'If It's Football, It's Vital'

MCFC The Fastest Growing World Football Club



Manchester City are the fastest growing football club in the world (in value change over the last year). This is according to the self-styled 'tool of capitalism' Forbes magazine.

Forbes shows an improvement in value for Manchester City of 62% over the last year whereas other English football clubs rate far lower in this regard:

Man City 62%
Aston Villa 26%
Spurs 8%
Chelsea 5%
Everton 5%
Manyoo 4%
Arsenal 0%
Liverpool -4%
Newcastle -5%

Manchester United are currently still the world's largest sporting club. Also Forbes are being quoted all over the internet to show Arsenal now in the Top 10 clubs with Utd. But there are of course different ways to look at the figures.

Forbes have also looked at the equally interesting Debt/Value figures for the clubs...

Come on Spuds fans, let's be having you!

When ADUG bought City, it was for 200m (give or take a pound). One year on, after spending around another 200m, the club is now worth 310m. So what have City accomplished since then, in so far as the footballing World is concerned? Absolutely diddly squat. Now can you imagine what the club will be worth when we actually start winning things? ADUG sure know what the hell they're doing.

I'm gutted. None of our Vital Man Spurs City members have steamed in.
Johnny Baguette
They don't deal in facts and figures, JB...
Sindbad
Its always encouraging to hear things like this, though we would have an advantage over most clubs as we have made massive inroads in the transfer market by signing better players for lots of money who would have in turn increased the value of the club. Its still surprising that no rags or spuds have turned up with any negative comments though.

I don't understand all those figures - what's the minus 16?
Thaibluefan
We have spent more than we earned TBF. I hope we buy our stadium soon.
Buzz Lightyear
The word on Ashton New Road is for that to take place soon and a new tier to be added, Buzzer.
Johnny Baguette
Bit confused.....bought the club for 200m, spent 200m....now worth 310m.....erm.....that's not exactly great is it? Doesn't that just imply you've P155ed 90m away?
YatesyVillain
YatesyVillain - It all depends when the year ends that they are reporting on as I doubt that these figures are up to the last few weeks as when accountants release figures they tend to be months or a year or so behind. I'd take a guess that they don't include the 100+ million that we have spent this summer and if thats the case then we're doing particularly well.
Kevinho
looks good for city and villa, yay!
