PICTURE: Arsenal’s net spending in Premier League era

Arsenal’s net spending in the Premier League era is £32 million, the 11th lowest since the league began.

The table below represents the clubs per season net spend on purchasing players from the beginning of the Premiership season 1992/93 to date.

Purchases is the total spent on buying players, sold is the total received from the sale players and net is Purchased minus sold giving a total of the money spend on players.

So far in the 2009/10 season, Arsenal have made a £31,000,000 net profit from the sales of Emmanuel Adebayor and Kolo Toure to Manchester City.

Thanks to TransferLeague & Orbinho for this.

    What rubbish. The reason you support a club isn’t because of how financially prudent they are but what they do on the pitch.

    By releasing these figures you seem to be suggesting that throwing away a 2-0 goal lead against a relegation threatened side is fine because we haven’t spent much money in recent years. At the end of yet another trophyless season and limp display at the business end of the campaign, are you seriously telling me that you console yourselves by saying ‘Oh well, but at least we’re doing well financially. That ought to show United and Chelsea!’?

    Next season, as we continue to save money, the likes of Spurs and Man City (who I remind have both already beaten us this season so you cannot deny that the warning signs are there) will leapfrog us and leave us battling for Europa league places if we’re lucky.

    You clowns don’t have a clue.

    Mmm I’m glad they are making so much money! they should give some back to the fans if they’re not going to spend it on players. I pay £1,300 for my season ticket. Slash ticket prices you stingy fucks!that would do nicely!

    Well said, I’m sick of armchair supporters taking the high ground, saying we should be proud that we spend nothing. It is fans like me, who spend a fortune on their season tickets and actually make a financial commitment to to the club, who are being taken for mugs! the club spend nothing but we still have to fork out loads of money each year to watch our beloved Arsenal!

    Finally some common sense among commentators around here. I kept saying this question for ages. Have we really developed in the last 5 years??? Just remember the last season Flamini played for us we had Adebayor, Hleb, Flamini, Toure, Gilberto, Lehmann and we looked like 100 times more solid than we do now.

    @ Romford Tart ………. Sneider is brilliant, I remember him years ago when he was 20 / 21 being the chief destroyer of Scotland in 6-0 thrashing ( only Scotland I know ! ) & for a while he was one of those very good players we were ‘linked’ with but of course didn’t sign. I’m just sick of this attitude that if you criticise Arsenal or the great man Mr Wenger you are not a real fan. It’s George Orwell stuff ! ……… and idiots who say success isn’t judged in the main by silverware. They trumpet the 10 successive years of Champions Lge football but that is more a financial success than a football one. If Fabregas stays & as things stand, he will have a cabinet full of shining ‘ 4th Places ‘ to look back on !!!

    HOW CAN ANYONE SAY WE NEED A NEW MANAGER?

    THE DAY ARSENE WENGER LEAVES ARSENAL IS THE DAY WE’RE IN TROUBLE.

    THE LINE BETWEEN WINNING AND LOOSING IS SO FINE, EDUARDO LEG BREAK-CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL BABEL DIVE-KIERAN GIBBS SLIP-INJURIES AT VITAL MOMENTS THIS SEASON.

    THE TEAM IS ON THE WAY UP, AND WITH PLAYERS LIKE NASRI, DIABY, CESC, DENILSON, VERMEALEN, CLICHY, WALCOTT ALL IN THEIR EARLY TWENTIES, HOW DOES THAT NOT EXCITE YOU??

    PLUS YOU HAVE AN UNLIMITED AMOUNT OF TOP TOP YOUNGSTERS COMING THROUGH, RAMSEY, WILSHERE, EMMANUAL-THOMAS, VELA, LANSBURY, EASTMOND, AFOBE, ANEKE, BARAZITE, FREEMAN, CRUISE, AYLING, BARTLEY

    WE HAVE MISSED OUT ON TROPHIES BECAUSE OF ERROR IN GAMES, NOT THE MANAGER BUT PLAYERS HAVE LET HIM DOWN. YES WE NEED A FEW RE-ENFORCEMENTS BUT NOT A CHANGE OF TEAM.

    THIS TEAM IS SET UP FOR THE NEXT 10 YEARS, THE ONLY THING THAT WILL LET IT DOWN IS LOOSING THE MANAGER

    UP THE ARSENAL

    IN WENGER WE TRUST
