I'd actually like to know what the cash flow is like rather than profit / losses. The profit for any one period doesn't mean much to me.As a socialist, I can't pretend I'm particularly bothered about our owners making colossal profits or whatever, but that's a wider gripe about how football has been run for a long time. Compared to the days of Hicks and Gillette, it's night and day. Hopefully the team continues to get the investment it needs.
We did a lot of buying and selling and as the profits are booked right away and the purchase values are amortized; it just reflects a difference in timing.
For Example, assuming his amortized value is zero right now (I know it isn't)... we could sell Firmino for 100m, buy him back for 100m on a 5 year contract and that would make an 80m profit at the end of the year (is that right???).
