Notts County Debts

There must be more to it - their fans are the worst for saying we are unsustainable and were buying the league.

Surely their fans must be aware of this!
 
If their owners are willing to absorb their losses then what’s the problem. We all know football is financially unsustainable. Nobody cares if you’re winning.
 
Doubt it. They have wealthy owners who will plug gaps like ours and who have one ambition and that’s to be back in the league.

No point getting hopes up.
 
as we all know , if they make it into L2 , that's worth £1million to them . That being said, they'll still be running at a significant loss then & look unlikely to significantly increase their average crowd to make up for that loss .

In the short term this really has no impact to them , but as others have said , it makes a mockery about their narrative that we're only there because we're being bankrolled .... the truth is , even with our higher profile players with higher wages, we're being run in a far more sustainable fashion than they are & with the much larger attendances, bigger money from sponsorship and the documentary income , we'll be in a much better position than them financially and with regards to where we will be in the football league long term
 
That is a BIG loan.
Irrelevant until the owners get bored or needy - which won't be this year.
But it does reinforce that to be competitive in the NL nowadays you need deep pockets.
Oh how things have changed.
 
You could probably count on one hand the clubs that are run to break even, never mind make a profit.

The best way Notts can reduce their yearly losses is to get promoted, hence why they won't sell any players.
 
Looking at the balance sheet yes there is an argument that it is technically insolvent give the amount of short term debt, but for a football club the cashflow test has more weight.

Only a few idiots from notts county call us unsustainable, in the same way we have a few idiots who call notts county names. It's not representative of either fanbase.

Unless someone is unsettled but they've got a top manager who's their biggest asset. Think a club can make losses of upto 13M per year in the EFL that is inclusive of financial injection by owners. Think they're OK, much worse run and bigger debts owed by clubs.. as said only becomes a problem if owner calls in the debt, which is very unlikely !
