A statistic showing the net spend of every Premier League club clearly demonstrates that Tottenham are performing beyond expectations.
Recorded over the last five seasons, the following table reveals that Spurs have actually made a profit in the transfer market over this period, at an average of £4,370,000. This makes the club the lowest net spenders in the Premier League, despite finishing within the top six in each of these seasons.
There’s two ways to look at this information. On one hand it is proof of the club being run in a financially sound manner at a time when a new stadium needs to be paid for.
Yet on the other, one can’t help but wonder what more could be achieved if the purse strings were loosened just a little. Are ENIC running the club in the right way?
