Just how are Brighton allowed to continue with these losses and get in the Premier League, well guess they let Boro.

This is discussed on the Brighton Finances thread as well. Another big loss is expected for 2016-17 and don't forget Mr Bloom has spent over 70m buying shares in the club on top of the interest free debt. Over 250m so far is his outlay plus the major loss/loan for 2016/17. Note also the loss for Charlton who have over 60m of debt. They are in even worse trouble.

Wolves made a profit due to 10m sale of Benik Afobe to Bournemouth and final parachute payment of 10.8m otherwise that would be a whole league making a loss.

When all clubs are operating at a loss, football is surely dying.

Very true. The cost of 'chasing the dream'

If we hadn't sold Wilf in our promotion year (what a deal that was :)) Palace would have made a loss of c12m.

It's all about owners with deep pockets now.

Amazing to see how much Charlton spent/ annual loss and still got relegated!

I'd argue that in the Championship its also about developing young players to sell to the Premier League for stupid amounts of money in order to cover your losses.
