It wasn’t a great season, was it?
Yes, we got to two cup finals – but sadly we lost them both. Worse, those two cup runs took a great toll on our league form.
If we’d won one of them we wouldn’t have minded so much, but as it stands we ended up with our joint worst-ever finish in the Premier League era (along with 1994 and 2012), and with no silverware to show for our efforts. Roll on next season!
At least one bright spot has come out of the season though, even if it is an economical one.
According to the Echo, we bagged a massive £90 million for our efforts – the sixth highest in the league.
The article says we netted an extra £18.5m from TV money over and above the evenly split TV revenue, and £16.1m for finishing 8th.
Arsenal were the top earners, becoming the first club to top £100 million.
It is thought the top clubs will earn around £160 million each next season.
Arsenal become 1st club to break £100m barrier from Premier League income. Will be close to £160m next season. pic.twitter.com/EzJQMLUvsF
