    I think it's pretty obvious given the Euro windfall in 2016, the American investment and the subsequent signing of McEleney, Duffy and every other attacking midfielder in the league that Dundalk, clearly, have the fourth highest playing budget in the league.

    Maybe its like Nascar and in fact all the top teams have identical cars.
    So we all do have the 4th biggest budgets

    Chippie living up to his moniker.
    Are any of the assumptions wrong or do they just not suit your agenda ?
    Feel free to correct any invalid assumptions, presuming you can.

    Interesting to see that Rovers lost roughly 200k in 2017. To put that in perspective that's roughly 1,000 extra tickets per home league game. I think Rovers averaged around 3,000 in 2017 so in theory if Rovers could get similar crowds to Cork (4,000-5,000) the club would make a profit each year as things are. Also something of note is that's equivalent to a TV deal worth just 1 million per year for the premier division if split evenly, which is nothing really and shows how handicapped the league is by the lack of one.

    Groundbreaking insight . Somebody should really tell all the LOI clubs that they will make a profit if they can improve their attendances.
    Manager: Fergal, have you your boots with ya?
    Fergal: Ya, I have them here.
    Manager: Ah good stuff, well give them to this man so, he forgot his!

    I pointed it out as Rovers have hit those numbers at times recently so there are clearly that many people with some sort of interest in attending regular league games so it's a very achievable figure and shows the club aren't far from being self sufficient.

    Dundalk finally posted their 2017 accounts. Made a loss in the year of (€83k) which surprised me with the Euro monies still to go through the accounts. They had a payroll bill of €1.8m in 2017 compared to Rovers €1.2m and Cork €1.1m.

    At Nov'17 Dundalk had €2.5m cash in the bank so they were well set for going forward. Given over the 2016 and 2017 they received circa €8.1m from their European run their profits for the 2 years of €3.1m seem low. From the payroll number bonuses were paid but still seems low.

    As the 2 shareholders sold their shares on 18/01/18 and monies paid to them would not have to be disclosed as they would no longer be related parties. Full blog post on Dundalk tomorrow.

    Caulfield gets a lot of stick here when he talks about budgets. From that tweet above we were at most, 3rd highest.

    To win the league with Dundalk so far ahead was a great achievement.

    Going to be difficult next year with our budget compared to theirs.

    Why would the Euro moneys still be outstanding?

    Winning the league and cup double in 2017 was a great achievement - doing it with the 3rd highest budget is even more so.

    Most of the stick that Caulfield got in relation to budgets and recruitment in 2018 was that his squad appeared unbalanced and few of his big signings actually worked out

    I find it amazing that he doesn't talk about his own club where he is a member, yet goes through other clubs finances...

    He did a whole section on Bohs here in case you missed it. The Pats obsession continues

    I'm retarded when it comes to money at the best of times. Is that the budget or the expenditure of clubs in the PL? Bohs are doing remarkably well if they've the 3rd lowest budget or spend in the league
    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age
