Generally these tables are primarily based on estimates/guesstimates but these figures beneath are taken from the actual accounts of every club
With accounts usually published some months right after a season has ended, or in Newcastle’s case just about totally a year right after the final campaign ended…these most recent figures are for the 2017/18 season, by means of every club’s accounts.
