Saints are set to land their biggest ever cash jackpot to top off a great season at St Mary’s.

The club are predicted to earn just shy of £80m for their second season back in the top flight if they can ensure they finish in eighth place, which in the process will equal their best ever Premier League era campaign.

It is an incredible achievement given that today marks the five-year anniversary of the club being formally placed into administration, with its very survival hanging by a thread.

After that period of uncertainty the takeover by Markus Liebherr and subsequent investment has fired Saints from League One into mixing again with the Premier League big boys.

That has totally reversed Saints’ declining fortunes and they are reaping the financial rewards.

Though new Saints director Hans Hofstetter sounded a cautionary tone over the latest set of accounts filed at Companies House this week, mainly due to the spending on the training ground and outstanding transfer fees, the progress that has been made is remarkable.

In the first season after the Liebherr takeover Saints generated revenue of £14.8m. That rose to £71.8m at the end of last season.

It will be dwarfed again by the cash raked in from the current campaign thanks to another increase in TV revenue.

West Brom finished eighth last season and banked just over £48m.

Though the exact figures depend on TV broadcasts etc, Saints can expect between £75m-£80m if they hit the same spot this season.

Even the league’s bottom team are expected to collect around £60m – the same as Manchester United received for winning the title last year.

It is also all a far cry from the early days of the Premier League.

After their first season in that era in 1992/93 Saints were paid £9.4m.

That included prize money of £185,000 for finishing 18th. Manchester United won the title and won prize money of £815,000, less than is up for grabs for each place you climb in the Premier League table this season.

It is the TV deals that make the biggest difference to Premier League incomes.

In that first League One season after the Liebherr takeover Saints banked just less than £1m in broadcast income. Last season that had risen to £46.9m.

Of course that has come at some cost as the wage bill has also almost quadrupled from £12.3m to £47.1m.

Saints have continued to record losses throughout the last four seasons but with revenues, attendances, broadcast and match day income all going up, there are also plenty of positive signs.

Certainly the significance of the remaining six games of this season could mean a difference to the club of more than £1m just for finishing eighth rather than ninth.=

Hopefully they will use the "windfall" to clear up all of the outstanding debts, and perhaps a small investment in a couple of quality players in the Summer window. Time to take stock and decide what direction we can go next. I refuse to take the mick out of our less fortunate "friends" down the road, we have to be grateful that we learned from their mistakes and that their example is always there as a warning to us in anything we try to do. We came so close to extinction and should be very satisfied in the turn around to relative security, however things can change very quickly so no need to be complacent. I am not normally negative but I am suspicious that from experience over the years, every time things seem rosy, something happens to kick us in the unmentionables. I am looking forward to a positive outcome through the Summer and that we are prepared for exciting times in the 2014/5 Season.

I remember years ago being told very firmly that money isn't everything. However, that was by my boss who had an unfortunate spin on the matter. But my enduring experience is that money is indeed much better than poverty, if only for financial reasons.

Of course money can't buy you love, but it does place you in a vastly better bargaining position. And more to the point, whilst money can't buy you friends it does bring a much better class of enemy.

For example, now they're three leagues below us and completely skint, Poopey has been vanquished as a proper enemy and we now have to look at the likes of Manure as our main adversary for 7th place in the Prem.

And of course Manure have loads of money - as do all their players. Indeed Rooney has proved that money can even turn a huge bald patch into a very fine barnet.

Even the bottom club gets over £62m.

(Nice picture there also of Fraulein Liebherr and Herr Hofstetter looking like two cats who have got at the cream, as indeed they have).

£80m for finishing 8th - nice.

Just imagine how gutted you must feel if you were a fan of a club that was in the Premiership recently but now had no chance of returning in the foreseeable future? That must hurt.

ospers, it is quite usual for clubs to buy players against future TV money. NC would have taken a slight gamble when he spent big on our return to the prem. that's why the outstanding payments announced yesterday isn't a major problem. I do think that he might have offered to pay the fees quicker than usual though, which might account for the size of the outstanding amount.
whatever happens we will be back in the prem next season, hopefully having kept our stars and MP and with a couple of additions. I`m very excited about next season but will enjoy watching our players in the world cup first, including our foreign stars like Dejan.
like you I decided against laughing at our less fortunate neighbours, well for today at least. I remember the dark days and how I felt, I remember the football league screwing us over and that (insert own expletive) Mawhinney taking great delight in issuing us with the ten point penalty. of course he also decided that had we stayed up that season we would have been given the penalty then, which would have sent us down, but had we been relegated by right we wouldn't get the penalty until the next season. I still remember that smug grin on his face when he was talking about us. oh and then, because they knew they were wrong with that decision they decided that anyone wanting to take us over had to sign away their right to challenge it, or they would withhold the `golden share` and effectively kick us out of the league. when you see how we were treated by that (use own expletive again) Mawhinney and the football league and how other clubs are treated you have to wonder why they have been so lenient with a certain other club. just glad we were able to get out of the football league so quickly and shove two fingers up at Mawhinney!

No, you have got it wrong, we learnt from our one mistake. They didn't learn from theirs.We made the mistake of trusting Rupert Lowe etc. Then we got it right with NC and ML. They got it wrong about 3 times after Milan Mandaric put it up for sell.Gaydamark, Chainrai and Antonov were all crooks but they trusted them. Something has got to be wrong down there for that to go on.

What I don't understand is that when you buy a player and he is put on a four or five year contract then why isn't the transfer fee written of over the four or five years rather than one?
Also if you spend £30m on buildings and land why isnt that written of over say 15 years like a commercial mortgage?
To take all those costs and lump them into one year is a bit harsh, and then to say we made a big loss is not the truth as we have assets that we bought with the money - we have the contracts and the new academy.

ospers, it is quite usual for clubs to buy players against future TV money. NC would have taken a slight gamble when he spent big on our return to the prem. that's why the outstanding payments announced yesterday isn't a major problem. I do think that he might have offered to pay the fees quicker than usual though, which might account for the size of the outstanding amount.
whatever happens we will be back in the prem next season, hopefully having kept our stars and MP and with a couple of additions. I`m very excited about next season but will enjoy watching our players in the world cup first, including our foreign stars like Dejan.
like you I decided against laughing at our less fortunate neighbours, well for today at least. I remember the dark days and how I felt, I remember the football league screwing us over and that (insert own expletive) Mawhinney taking great delight in issuing us with the ten point penalty. of course he also decided that had we stayed up that season we would have been given the penalty then, which would have sent us down, but had we been relegated by right we wouldn't get the penalty until the next season. I still remember that smug grin on his face when he was talking about us. oh and then, because they knew they were wrong with that decision they decided that anyone wanting to take us over had to sign away their right to challenge it, or they would withhold the `golden share` and effectively kick us out of the league. when you see how we were treated by that (use own expletive again) Mawhinney and the football league and how other clubs are treated you have to wonder why they have been so lenient with a certain other club. just glad we were able to get out of the football league so quickly and shove two fingers up at Mawhinney!
I had good reason to despise Mawhinney even before he managed to screw us over, and the fact we can thumb our noses at him is even more gratifying.
A lot of people were probably not aware of the blackmail tactics used to our detriment, I am gald you have reminded them. It has certainly been one rule for us and a different one for others.

I cannot understand why there is anger regarding publishing Southampton FC accounts. Surely everyone knows that in a business Accounts must be kept and the Echo is only printing what the whole of Great Britain now know that Southampton FC have debts but it's not necessary a dig at the last regime, Southampton FC are committed to publish there Accounts whether they are good or bad. .

I must be very Naive as I honestly thought when Marcus stepped in and being a Billionaire there would a bottomless Pit, I did not realise that a fraction of his wealth would be used but of course it makes sense because if I was him I wouldn't sink all my Billions into one business however if a business needs renovation, refurbishing, new buildings and updating to improve and expand it cannot be done with fresh air it cost money a lot of money.

These Accounts were not 2013/2014 they were 2012/2013 and it was the beginning of the revolution of the wonderful Southampton FC, Marcus employed a very clever intelligent man Nicola Cortese who inherited debts like most Football Clubs have and there certainly wasn't any money to pay off the debt which meant that some of the new Investors money had to be used so this makes a hole in the next financial years profit.

There are times when we do read between the lines about many things and sometimes we are right, I personally believe Nicola held all the purse strings and authority and perhaps felt he didn't need to have consultations with his Boss because he was trusted, it has be known that people given this liberty in a business have overspent then wouldn't admit there mistakes but it has often broken a business like Leeson of Barings Bank.

The new board has to run the business to make profit there's no other way, Seedhouse commented this week that when a Construction company give an Estimate it's binding and I too had a business of Plumbing & Heating for over 20 years, all my Customers knew what they were expected to pay but if I told them that a certain variation was an extra they would not pay the extra because I got the same response, we thought it was included in the price, I soon learnt to add the words, This is an Estimate not a Quotation any extras not described on this Estimate will be additional to the Estimate price.

With the as- certainty that the Club could receive £80million to finish 8th in the League it's understandable that the Manager his Staff and Players want to win the remaining games as do the Supporters with possible bonuses for the Team and Staff, if they play and win like they did against Newcastle then bring it on because it was like drinking the best Champagne, so there is plenty to play for and this massive amount of money will wipe out the debt, I bet everyone is looking forward to the 2nd week in August already I certainly am because the Saints will go marching on.

Hoffenheim are another classic example of a small-time club who have used their rich owner's money to buy a place in the top league. Their success attracted so many fairweather plastic supporters that their home crowds exceeded the entire population of the town! Howvere it must be admitted that they have an eye for undervalued players: the 2008-9 forward partnership of Ibisevic and Ba was most exciting to watch.

Hoffenheim are another classic example of a small-time club who have used their rich owner's money to buy a place in the top league. Their success attracted so many fairweather plastic supporters that their home crowds exceeded the entire population of the town! Howvere it must be admitted that they have an eye for undervalued players: the 2008-9 forward partnership of Ibisevic and Ba was most exciting to watch.
So Hoffenheim are a small-time club who have used their rich owner's money to buy a place in the top league, shame they didn't use their NOT SO RICH owners money to a CUP, a bit like another small town called Portsmouth.

oh a small team club with little support but lots of plastics that uses their rich owners money to buy a place in the top league, does that remind you of your own club? well it would do apart from they used their rich owners money whilst you used the tax payers, charities and local businesses money, without telling them! oh and even in the top flight you couldn't sell out a 21k stadium!
we though were lucky to find a wealthy investor who has only had to put a small amount into the club because our previous owners invested in an infrastructure and an academy which provided us with young players who we could sell for lots of money or use to regain our position in the top league.
your club however thought that they could just buy success, just a shame that none of your previous owners had the money they spent. just like your current `owners` have no money! your fans enjoyed the ride though and didn't care about the finances and where the money came from, and they still don't.

Skate on thin ice you do look for negatives where none exist. My business expands by making acquisitions of our competitors. When we buy a limited company, as opposed to a trade and assets purchase, the existing directors stand down and I become a director of that business. Once we've absorbed the customers and staff into the parent company the acquisition ceases trading and when the time is right we have it struck off, occasionally liquidated. So if you ran my name through companies house you would find that I have been a director of several now defunct companies. Does that help explain it for you?

So if you ran my name through companies house you would find that I have been a director of several now defunct companies. Does that help explain it for you? Seedhouse the Unrepentant

I cannot understand why there is anger regarding publishing Southampton FC accounts.

I must be very Naive as I honestly thought when Marcus stepped in and being a Billionaire there would a bottomless Pit, I did not realise that a fraction of his wealth would be used but of course it makes sense because if I was him I wouldn't sink all my Billions into one business however if a business needs renovation, refurbishing, new buildings and updating to improve and expand it cannot be done with fresh air it cost money a lot of money.

These Accounts were not 2013/2014 they were 2012/2013 and it was the beginning of the revolution of the wonderful Southampton FC, Marcus employed a very clever intelligent man Nicola Cortese who inherited debts like most Football Clubs have and there certainly wasn't any money to pay off the debt which meant that some of the new Investors money had to be used so this makes a hole in the next financial years profit.

There are times when we do read between the lines about many things and sometimes we are right, I personally believe Nicola held all the purse strings and authority and perhaps felt he didn't need to have consultations with his Boss because he was trusted, it has be known that people given this liberty in a business have overspent then wouldn't admit there mistakes but it has often broken a business like Leeson of Barings Bank.

The new board has to run the business to make profit there's no other way, Seedhouse commented this week that when a Construction company give an Estimate it's binding and I too had a business of Plumbing & Heating for over 20 years, all my Customers knew what they were expected to pay but if I told them that a certain variation was an extra they would not pay the extra because I got the same response, we thought it was included in the price, I soon learnt to add the words, This is an Estimate not a Quotation any extras not described on this Estimate will be additional to the Estimate price.

With the as- certainty that the Club could receive £80million to finish 8th in the League it's understandable that the Manager his Staff and Players want to win the remaining games as do the Supporters with possible bonuses for the Team and Staff, if they play and win like they did against Newcastle then bring it on because it was like drinking the best Champagne, so there is plenty to play for and this massive amount of money will wipe out the debt, I bet everyone is looking forward to the 2nd week in August already I certainly am because the Saints will go marching on.
The debt was converted to equity. So very little debt - don't panic.

should be alright CD they can sell just not allowed to buy for the next 2 windows, so a naughty little bid for messi would be fine, he has/got tax issues though so might be ore suited to our tax evading neighbours. some of them might think they can afford his reported 16mill euro a year salary, with only 12 fingers most cant count to 16 and they would struggle to convert the `not English pounds` to proper money.

Oh right. The report I saw said that transfers either way were banned. I think Messi himself has stated that he would dearly like to end his playing days with the skunts as he always likes to be the best player in the side. He's around thirty now and expects to sign for them in the year 2059.

from the report on the bbc website "Barcelona, who will still be allowed to sell players, are hoping to sign a new goalkeeper at the end of the season, with the long-serving Victor Valdes leaving the Nou Camp at the end of his contract."
its ok CD when I first saw the report on the sky site they had it as a 2 year ban not 2 window!
Barcelona are also in trouble over tax and recently paid £11mill to the tax man because they have/had been charged with tax fraud over the purchase of Neymar.

He did.

PSG have spent 364m in three years. We've produced tens of millions of pounds worth of talent for whatever the cost of operating the academy is. Add a few decent signings and we can compete for a fraction of that.

The trip to Wembley and winning the JP Trophy is the Highlight. uts
These where great days indeed... but even while we where winning every week I accepted that we wouldnt be doing this if we wherent on our way to the prem.

Soton 3 - 1 Leeds...... first game of the Championship was also a good day.

Watched the coventry game on youtube last night. reminded me that some of the players that are now derided where part of an awesome unit
