Alan Pardew Talks About New Cash Injection

8 years ago

For the first time, somebody at Newcastle United has acknowledged the massive increase in money flowing into all Premier League clubs next season.

Unsurprisingly, the person talking about the extra revenue is Alan Pardew, as he has the responsibility as spokesman on pretty much every aspect of Newcastle United, which is definitely not ideal.

When asked about QPR sacking Mark Hughes, our manager had this to say;

“It is difficult. The new TV contract that’s coming in, the extra funds for next year, I think is putting extra pressure on boards and they are reacting. You can’t afford not to be in (stay in) the Premier League this year and Mark might not be the only one (to be sacked)”.

For anybody still not aware, the new TV deals, both domestic one and all the others currently in the process of being agreed with every corner of the world, will mean massive increases for every Premiership club.

Last season, bottom club Wolves got around £40m via the TV money and when the new broadcasting deals kick in from next season, it is anticipated clubs could all earn around an extra £20m compared to what exists in the current deal.

So for example, last season Newcastle earned £54.2m but if they repeated that performance next year (assuming we are still in the Premier League…) you could be looking at around £75m just from TV!
