The stadium debt will be paid off long term. The figures I've seen are £50m a year, but it will generate £100m so no real need to worry about that at the moment. Poch has mentioned several times in the past that we are ahead of schedule and that the plan was always to target champions League football and trophies once we got into the stadium. That was always going to take investment in the playing squad which is what we're seeing now. I'm not expecting us to spend £100m+ every season, but it makes sense as a one off to get us closer to the level that we want to be at.Fair point, but I would have assumed that any profits over the last few seasons would have been prioritised more towards servicing the stadium debts. Maybe I’m just a cynic!
