    We are basically 159 mill in the green after you minus our loan debt due to emirates and other bank debts we have.

    Check out the Arsenal Supporters Trust for an analysis of the accounts:

    I think the accounts shown here are for last year and there has been an interim report since.

    So basically we make 25kk a year and there will be a lot of available cash in the future assuming those flats sell on nicely and we make it into the Champions league during that period.

    As frustrating as it is, you must admit it is impressive how secure we are. Effectively this is a black spot until well laid plans come to fruition.

    Options to go wrong seem to be:

    1. Flats go tits up and recent profits cover it
    2. We miss Champions league and recent profits cover it
    3. Both and we could have problems, as unlikely as it is.

    During all this, Wenger has given us a promising young squad, so what I see, is that we will end up with a good squad and some good cash to improve it, or an excellent squad, in which case the stadium debt could be largely put to bed.

    now that’s a healthy balance sheet. the current account might be in a slight deficit, but i’m sure it won’t be a massive hit to the retained earnings (102m!)

    How about a bit of commentary to explain what your point is?

    I guess it means that Arsene has plenty of cash to keep pinching everyone elses best youth players by luring them with over the top salaries for their age, to give huge salary increases to fickle failures like Robin van Persie, to keep paying Rosicky for doing nothing, to keep all his compliant, pampered babies at the Club?

    Of course no money is available to buy a hard midfielder so we finally have some real balls and steel to our delicate midfield.

    IF ONLY arsenal had borrowed a few thousands of £s to keep Diarra and Flamini.

    That Womble of a guy is Myles Palmer in disguise! In fairness, It is quiet frustrating not to have the type of players we (fans) reckon will add to the teams strength and the Manager keep saying no new player every year.

    I understand the investment in the youth was basically to push them on to 1st team but when you look at the kind of seater Eboue missed at the OT; it can make you go banana. We need two or more inspirational player in the mould of Arshavin and need it fast but the honourable Managers of ours don’t give a damn how we feel. He knows better.
