On trying to assess the value of the club, which as a business is loosing money apart from player sales.
The assets of the ground £20m, training ground £5m .
All the players in the 1 st team squad would have a value of up to £2m each about £25m.
On top of this the 3 players in my opinion worth more money are Roberts, Shacks and Philips about £25m for the 3.
To me that is about £75m.
There has to be some value in the development squad with some future players coming through, but it is very hard to quantify. The brand, business name and opportunity of promotion would also have value, if we were to apply £25m for all these combined and allowing some leeway in the other values
That would give a total of about £100m .
There is of course the £15m due for Costa to come off that figure, this maybe offset by some stage payments due in for players we have already sold.
Taking all this into account a value of £100m would appear to be about right .
The only area of uncertainty is would there be a bonus payment to Rads if promotion was secured this season and if so how much.
So £100m plus any promotion dividend minus any outstanding transfer payments out would on paper appear to where it should be valued.
Failing promotion, if Rads don't sell the club, where will we end up, there will have to some player sales, Pablo is retiring and Bielsa will be gone.

I like your calculations 1970 but I don’t think you can count all the playing squad as assets when the majority of player sales are amortised over 3 years - therefore pretty much all of the players arriving in the Radz era will not be wholly ours yet. I would place the value at nearer £75m and any deal may or may not include the ground which is owned by Radz seperately.

Training ground is rented so not ours either.

Yes Alf as in all these things there are variables, Rads is running a far better business, from a sponsorship and marketing view point. The real question I suppose is how much Rads be willing to accept for the club?
