City Juggernaut Announces Record Turnover

Manchester City Football Club has published an annual report in which the English champions have halved their losses and confirmed a club record turnover...

Annual losses have been reduced to £97.9 million which is a sum less than half the £197.5 million announced one year ago.

Turnover reported for the 2011-12 season amounted to a stunning £231.1million, a club record, despite group stage elimination from The Champions League.

MCFC further confirmed: "The capital base of the Club has also been strengthened through the issuing of £169m in new equity during the year, avoiding debt based funding and continuing to ensure that the Club is virtually debt free."

His Highness Sheikh Mansour, Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak and their team are nobody's fools. Despite The Blues having had to circle the wagons with greater intensity since being crowned champions, the club remains very much on course towards becoming a major European football force.

You only lost £100 million? What's up with your stingy owners? Of course the title wasn't bought was it. Another great club reduced to begging.

I seem to recall a saying about turn-over being vanity, and profit being sanity. Still some way to go boys.

Good grief. And Tottenham Hotspur wouldn't have spent anything had Sheikh Mansour come to town? I recall watching us get regularly pasted by Spurs when we wouldn't have had a hope in hell of paying the salaries the likes of Lineker and Gascoigne bagged.

And by the sounds of this Ox we'll be there a lot sooner than a lot of our detractors predicted.

We'll be profitable by 2014/2015 season, bank on it. People who actually know what they're doing predicted the near exact amount we'd lose this season and have us breaking event/profitable not next season but the season after. That's even without Champions League progress factored in, which surely we'll achieve sooner or later.

lol! Here are the Tottingham fans, once again with their faces pressed up against the MCFC window. Wish they'd stop licking though, costing a fortune to clean that up, and we do need to minimise our losses you know. ROFLMAO.

Are Spurs fans upset that we still don't have the highest ticket prices in the league? Or that our value-for-money far exceeds theirs? Or that the owners have decided to focus on improving the area instead of making it a play-thing to make money off of? All of these things NOT being done by the Spurs owners.
