#footballfinance Marble Halls football finance – Why are summer window transfer window prices inflated? – marblehallstv – Football Article

We’re all reeling from the inflated prices. Lukaku, prior to his actual move, was quoted as worth £100m (and a world record no less). Mbappe of Monaco has been quoted at £150m in some sources, which would be way above the current world record for Paul Pogba (£89m).   So why is this happening? It’s because of general inflation. The Premier League is not the only league with more money. It has the most money of any league in the…

What is tapping up, and should it matter? – marblehallstv – Football Article

The saga over Van Dijk has intrigued, and frankly amused, many. Liverpool backtracked and apologised for a breach of stated FA/UEFA/FIFA rules, in seeking to sign Van Dijk from Southampton. Soton apparently complained to the authorities about an “illegal” approach to their defender. As of 21st July 2017, he had been reported to stop training at Soton, amidst the current transfer brew-ha-ha. This excerpt from Sky Sports, featuring points from sports employment lawyer, Mr. Richard Berry, references some intriguing considerations:…

What makes a successful football club? – marblehallstv – Football Article

In organisational theory, there are several schools of thought concerning how successful organisations arise. A successful organisation should have the following, to fulfil its goals and add value: Strong top management (board/owner) Strong strategy, mission and goals (will to win/compete for top trophies) Financial health (high revenues/brand value/financial stability) Empowered employees (top manager/players/coaches)  Healthy corporate culture (winning culture) Good products (a good team) Strong learning , growth, and innovation (youth development, new tactics, new facilities)  All successful firms have these,…

Will official online streaming of domestic league football happen? – marblehallstv – Football Article

  I say yes, it will.   It is a natural step/evolution of football consumption. When BskyB first started broadcasting live Premier League football, the picture of consumption was different. There was no Internet then, at least none that were widely available. Satellite TV, unlike today, was an emergent trend, and the two aligned well. In 2017, many people own Internet-capable devices, and have broadband connections. They also consume entertainment via the Web, and increasingly more so than traditional media.…

Why are footballers’ salaries so high? – marblehallstv – Football Article

This is a very old comment. Footballers, whilst role models in some sense, are not as societally critical as doctors, nurses, teachers, or firefighters. So do they warrant their high salaries? The basis of a salary is the responsibility, qualifications, and affects one’s work has in an organisation and/or community. This is why the CEO of an organisation gets more money than the office cleaner. A similar rationale applies for footballers. Footballers are the chief employees of any football club.…

Van Dijk IS worth it – #footballfinance – marblehallstv – Football Article

I’m a great fan of The Football Terrace, hosted by Terry Flewers, a Man United fan. His channel is a general football channel, and not just focused on Man U, however he continually makes a sound point vis a vis football transfers. Football transfers are prices, and prices are subject to inflation. It’s that simple. If people have more money to spend, then product rices can rise. Worth is always subjective and based on what buyers and sellers are willing…
