heyho I don’t think the money from going up covers the losses for the last three seasons. Villa have had to convert debt to shares twice - as well as doing the ground sale trick. They’ve been writing off about £60 mill a season.
When I did the numbers earlier in the year I had Derby and Bristol City down as other teams that needed to go up to offset the losses over the last three seasons.
This is the incredible world we live in now. Even in the championship there are teams that only exist day to day through the largesse of billionaires.
