Problem with all of the above, without breaking into the top 4, or regularly selling your best players or academy products, like Southampton have in recent years, not sure how TV money alone can make you a profit.
5. With the exception of Man City (possibly as well, not sure it's a given), every owner could sell for a profit, whenever they see fit to*
