Just been looking at my teams for the first time properly since the update (thank god the old interface is back) and I have some concerns about the new finances. It seems that all my established clubs are now losing money with the possible exception of Marseille. This I believe has something to do with stadium capacity
Here are some of my teams there stadium capacity and a few other statistics that people may find informative.
*Total squad wage is taken from the squad screen and includes reserves and loan players (loan players wage 50% has been taken into account)
*Weekly wage is taken from the finance screen week ending 2/12
GC 155 S10 Stockport County. Cap 30.381 Total Squad Wage 1.0m Weekly wage 1.8m Players 56
GC 98 S14 AS Nancy 25.279 1.8m 3.0m 53
GC 163 S09 Benevento 25.000 1.3m 2.4m 56
GC 239 S08 Marseille 67.000 2.65m 1.4m? 59 wage on finance screen week ending 25/11 was 2.8m
All these sides are established top division sides with around 50-60 players with around half being loaned out. For example my Stockport side has 28 players loaned out with a total average rating of 76.
It is not unusual for top division sides to have squads in excess of 50 players, I recently took charge of Athletic Club in GC 468. Now Athletic are not what I would call a massive club although they do have a large stadium capacity (53.332). Their squad size at the beginning of the game was 55. . As it stands the club seems to be in profit although the first team only has a total average rating of 84 and like I said earlier they have a very large stadium.
Now take a team like Juventus, at the start of a new Game World they have a total squad of around 70 players with a lot of top players on very high wages. There Stadium capacity is over 10.000 less than Athletic Club. Juventus Stadium, capacity 41.588, its actually only the 6th biggest stadium in Italy, now with these new changes to finances does it mean that clubs like Juve and Chelsea (another club with high wages big squad and not the biggest stadium) will be losing money from the very start of the game.
If I'm going to have to sell half my squad to cover costs, squads I've spent years putting together not to mention the many hours spent researching young players,Mauro Icardi signed years ago for under 500k is just one of many examples then the games done for me. That and if SM insist on forcing us to use the terrible new interface. Got around 20 days of gold left, will use my existing credits to top up for another month and see what happens.
If anyone reading could shed some light on this, maybe provide me with some more information and examples please post below
