Arsenal’s turnover topped £200million for the year ending May 31, 2007, with group operating profits up by an astonishing 274% to £51.2million. And this is achieved without winning a single trophy in the last few seasons.

The profits well exceed the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea – whose respective turnover for the same period was £167.8m and £152.8m.

Moral of the story: All you need is free flowing attacking football.
