    Post Premiership spending 5 year period

    Ever wandered how much Chelsea are spending?

    How much Arsenal don't spend a year on transfers or generally what order the Premiership teams come in in terms of annual spending on new players well here it is.



    Now for those of you ladies who believe Chelsea to be the club ruining the Premiership bare in mind how this year the values of Manchester United, Liverpool and Spurs are all peaking whereas Chelseas have levelled off.

    I admit no excuse to be paying 250 million on men to kick a ball and I'm the first to admit that it is an absolute insane amount of money but well this is football, it'll up the competition and up the potential talent wanting to come into this country. All in all enjoy the statistics and people I know you love us but please let's keep this a Premiership discussion not a "ARG we are morons we hate Chelsea".
    If ya wanna do that kindly PM your response to JTG.

    The one which stands out is Arsenal. Absolutely incredible! They have come close to a Prem title and Champs League in that time.

    On first glance, Tottenham's figures don't make great reading although they had a much bigger gap to bridge in the first place and have managed tow fifth places and a Carling Cup so all in all not bad for the Spuds. And Man Utd have spent well bearing in mind their success of the last two years.

    But's Liverpool's gives me a good chuckle! One lucky Champs League win, a Champs League runners-up but nowhere closer to that elusive Premiership title.

    A profit over 5 years. Gotta love the 'Arsenal way'
    Sanchez - 35m, Debuchy - 12m, Ospina - 3.2m, Chambers - 16m, Welbeck - 16m
    Djourou - 2.5m, Vela - 12m, Vermaelen - 15m, Miquel - 1.5m
    51.2 million spent

    Yes, I can hear them already! Still, we spent a lot but were successful at least. Two Premier League Titles, a Champs League runners up, FA/Carling Cups. And numerous 2nd places/semi finals. Scolari will probably win something next season too even if it is just the Carling Cup. And like Tottenham we had a bigger gap to bridge in the first place.

    Oh yes but despite our success we are (apparently) the reason for the Premierships ruining (I'm pretty sure we still have the best league in the world?) so whatever we won it does not accumulate to anything against Liverpools history (Note the word history) and whatever we do and whoever we buy the loyal Utd fans from across Europe and everywhere except Old Trafford will attempt to blame us for buying the league they dominated for such a long time.

    However I do for this time period admire the transactions Wenger as made, it's just ashame of all his minor signings and youth players....well none were really all that English.

    Agree on both counts. I think it's far better to have another team challenging for the title however it's done. I mean that. If, say, Thaksin and Hughes can emulate Chelsea's success then great. The more fun it will be as a spectator and the more dramatic the league will be overall.

    I do admire Arsenal in most ways but that is their only real downside. If Chelsea didn't have some prominent English players I'd honestly stop bothering going to the Bridge.

    Oh and though it pains me to say, I think West Ham have done well bearing in mind they have re-established themselves as a Premiership team.

    That chart takes into account players sold as well then, yes??

    I just find it funny seeing Liverpool up there.

    And this table is already out of date - We havent spent anything this summer yet!! So I bet Spurs are above us

    It to a certain extent proves the age old adage "money does not by you success". Obviously Man U can lay claims to refute the adage given their spending and success; however it does appear that an astute manager with a keen eye for talent is worth far more to a club than a manager that buy players on reputation alone and the normally overinflated prices attached.

    As an aside Martin Hughes and Blackburn on the figures have done an outstanding job given their consistency in the prem in the last 2 years and European advances. Man City fans should be pleased - and Man U fans disappointed as I would have thought he would have been a great successor to Sir Alex (although Roy Keane will no doubt be adequate when the time comes).

    Why? Nearly half of that came last season with two players who have shown their quality.

    What you should really find funny is the gap between first and second.

    Where does it show the 08-09 season figures on this list? The 07-08 spending would have related to last summer and the January 08 transfer window.

    this is stupidly wrong

    we've actually spent almost 100M alone in the last 15 months or so. 40M last summer, 22M in January and about 30M so far in this window.
    even if it's NET spending Spurs are more than 59M in a 5 year period.

    Source is soccerbase, which we've proven to be shite in the past.

    Why is it highlighting only City?

    hmm, to be fair they have 4 sources, not just soccerbase.

    It's probably about as accurate as it can possibly be based on public knowledge.

    because the .jpg was taken from a city site (purelymancity.com).
