This is not just a one off hit. Pivoting from CL to no Europe is a 100M year on year loss of revenue.

True but remember our financial plans are not based on European football, that's a very nice extra not a staple, over the last decade European football has added an average 15m to out turnover and a fraction of that to our bottom line ... it's still far more important as a PR tool than for the cash it brings.

Spurs have played just five seasons in the top European competition since 1962 ... let's not pretend we've been part of the CL elite nor that we've relied on CL money, we haven't.
