Most probably the Duffy site which is on the other side of Lionel Road South from the West Stand.The note on Fixed Assets (p. 37) states that the only freehold land remaining relates to "a piece of land held by a subsidiary company, adjacent to the Brentford Community Stadium that has been transferred from assets in the course of construction in the year". Just curious, but anyone know what this is?
I thought it was two additional years?They say that it's the second season in the Prem where the money really makes an impact. As payments, promotion clauses etc mean you are still somewhat limited in your first year.
Second year you dont have those, plus you are then guaranteed an additional year of parachute money that you can plan for.
It is 2 additional years and this is specifically mentioned in the accounts wrt the Barclays overdraft.I thought it was two additional years?
That is, one year parachute money if you go straight back down, but three years if you manage to last for at least two seasons.
Yes albeit compared with previously promoted clubs which isn't a great bar for financial management@KeiranMaguire (price of football) on Twitter seems to approve.
Does it detail what MB coughed up for BCS in total ?
BCS construction contract with BG was rumoured to be c £70m (I think ?) , so a gap of £48m ?Yes
"Matthew Benham's total investment in the group on 30 June 2021, comprised of equity and loans, stood at £104.1m (2020: £103.0m). This sum includes £22.4m (2020: £21.3m) of secured loans specifically in relation to the Brentford Community Stadium project."

The most interesting comparison is possibly Norwich as it runs a “self-funding” business model because they have owners with no significant money beyond the club itself and no external funding beyond ordinary banking. They’ve yoyoed by spending big in the Championship and having a £40m loss then not having much headroom to do anything significant when up. Our £9m loss in the context of a season and a half with no crowds would have been probably at break even otherwise and in profit without the promotion bonuses.Yes albeit compared with previously promoted clubs which isn't a great bar for financial management
