    (1) Panic buys with us squandering so much money on Coutinho and Dembele and later Griezmann, (2) the lack of discipline and financial prudence when offering and controlling wages and (3) COVID sunk us.
    Sóc Culer. Go HUAWEI!

    I swear Bartomeo has to be the biggest fraud of all time. Left us in ruins financially

    It's funny, but Covid showed how badly we managed our payroll. IT WAS TOTALLY OUT OF CONTROL! Basically, every player was paid too much.

    FFP was never fit for purpose from the outset. It’s architects were self protectionists, some of whom were squandering the wealth of their clubs, as they endeavoured to restrict new money coming into the game. Today, those who picked up the pieces, are touting their players for sale to try and get their hands on that new money.

    Barca estimates that after Messi’s renewal about €200M of the squad’s overall salary mass must be reduced.

    Barca must reduce the salary limit by 47.1% so that Barca goes from being able to allocate €656.43m to only €347.08m.
    LaLiga established a rule that clubs can reinvest 25% of the capital gained from transfers and savings they get from player departures.
    https://twitter.com/FCBRAC1/status/1408406438876221441

    Griezmann 34M
    Coutinho 24
    Dembele 20

    Umtiti 14
    Pjanic 14
    Sergi Roberto 9
    Trincao 8
    Firpo 6
    Braithwaite 6
    Neto 6


    Busquets 22
    Pique 20
    Alba 20

    Good luck. Dead club.
    We'll need at least between 4-6 years to recover.

    Those amounts are a minimum. For example Griezmann earns more because he has an increasing salary, I think that it was said that in the last seasons of his contract he'll earn 30M net (more than 60M gross)

    Disgrace of a Wagebill . It's practically 90% of our turnover

    Bartomeo needs prison for this act.

    The policy of the previous board was to increase income regardless of benefits, all the money that came in at the minute went out. In 2017 we would have had losses but it was save thanks to PSG paid Neymar's clause, the following year they saved the budget with Neto-Cillesen and the last year with Pjanic-Arthur. Then covid arrived and you have 300-400M less in revenue with the same expenses.

    By having losses, the LFP forces you to lower the wage bill. Bartomeu not only does not lower it, but what he does is reach an agreement with the players to delay 180M of salaries for the following years (Laporta).
    This last year we are going to have 300-350M losses. The LFP once again orders us to lower the wage bill, and we not only have to lower what corresponds to us for this year, but also pay the 180M of the previous year.

    No, Bartomeu's budgets are false. These budgets included 100M for player sales, 25-30% from stadium ticketing, tourism, museum since December, reaching a higher percentage at the end of the season.

    Currently the wage bill, as Laporta has said, is 110% of the budget.

    I think it will be close to a decade before we are even competitive for CL again.

    You are giving the other teams too much credit.

    Not that hard to understand. An almost obscene worshipping of veterans for past glory (these guys won 1 CL in the last 10 years mind you, less than Chelsea ), and a terrible board. Add those two together and you get a massive fireball of spending (and the type of spending which is medium-term, not the kind that you can unplug whenever you want). Then add the COVID situation which has crippled the club's revenue, and you get the current situation.

    If Chelsea can win it.. We can too. They have hardly a super team. Few good young players, few good old players etc. Mix of young, prime and old.

    Chelsea play with a style that doesn't require a super team of WC players to be succesful in CL
