By quite some distance, as a % of turnover. Good or bad?

I suppose good from an atmosphere & loyalty POV. Bad from a commercial POV.

It was in League one with crowds of over 20,000 so hardly surprising.

It seems we’re far and away the highest revenue source for United, ( fans that is). If I understand correctly it doesn’t say a great deal for our owners. I’m happy to be contradicted however. Stats were for our promotion season

Does it suggest our owners are less generous than those of other clubs?

It says owners & Utd are broke & rely on large gates for operating revenue. Utd have great fans & loyal fanbase but our commercial potential is diminished as a consequence of cheapskate ownership.

Where does it say United are broke?
Once again I point out that it was when they were in League one where outside revenue is a lot more limited than in the Championship.

Reading the article you quoted it doesn't say United are broke anywhere like you claim it does.

United are one of the richest clubs out side the Premiership they have sold youngsters for many millions ,they have large gate receipts and two of the richest men in football at the top ,,one of them being member of the Saudi Royal family and all the oil money that goes with that .

I wouldn't know about all that but they are currently able to sign new players and renew contracts and don't own a bogus taxi firm.

All that tells us is that the Blades were a very well supported club in Division 1.
What would be interesting are last seasons stats, to see how we fare as a championship club with attendances slightly above average.
More interesting is the fact that half of the premiership would make
a profit if they played their games behind closed doors.Bonkers.

About as much as the Saudi oil money you mentioned in your sly remarks about United, don't start getting all upset when you get a reply in kind about your own set up.
D Taxis have you used them?.

Taxi's you've got me there pal don't know now't about taxis, As to theSaudi oil money that belongs to the Saudi Royal family so the Prince must be part of that unless he made his millions else where .
Can't remember getting upset either ,I watch Barnsley these days and have no idea who owns them as they tend not to hog the media around these parts.

The taxi firm along with Elev8 drinks company and Elev8 clothing are companies all set up by Chansiri that sponsor Wednesday up to now no one has seen any of these taxis.

I didn't claim it said that in the article, that's my reasoned interpretation.

A well supported club with little other streams of capital.

They one of the lowest net spend clubs in the Championship & sell all valuable players. A feeder club for likes of Bournemouth. Rich sheik? Chip oil magnet more like.

You was asked a question on the article and you started your reply with "It says owners & Utd are broke".
That's pretty clear to me.
