Man, another proud graduate from Wharton, the red flag is up on the correspondence course work especially if the assignments are done on Big Chief note pads and written in crayon.

I always hear that Inter has less Italian fan but more international fan than Milan. But based on annual attendance it seems at least we have more dedicated fans.

It’s the opposite. Inter is more popular domestically but Milan have a bigger global following. Or at least that’s the general perception.

It is hardly much of a secret, a quick look at the annual financial report would tell you how serious the situation is. That said Inter isn’t a run of the mill company, so there much more leeway then you would normally get too see. Had Inter been a completely normal company it’s highly unlikely the company would not have been declared bankrupt by now. So I think we all should be careful about burying the club just yet, as there generally goodwill towards sports teams.

However we will continue living in the danger zone until Zhang accepts the reality that he cannot afford to run the club, at the very best he just keep it right above water.

Fear mongering. One example: that monstrous yield looks like a bargain today. Inter is sick but it's far from the only sick club in Europe. Plenty of Spanish and English teams are in similar or worse situations.

Inter has only survive so far because of goodwill, because the company is a major sports team in a major sport, and those is a household name. A household name the league and European football cannot afford too lose. Had Inter been any other company it would have been put to rest long time ago.

Cool. You just described 99% of football clubs in Europe.

The sky is indeed not falling. You guys are just finally realizing that football clubs are terrible money pit investments.

I don't agree. There's significant net equity in the club. Future revenue forecasts are also pretty solid if one is willing to reduce our cost basis a bit. Milan are profitable for example.

Losses and bankrupt aren't equivalent

If you meant inter in the broader multidecade historic sense then yes, but if you meant Inter as in the last few seasons no

are we really on the verge of bankruptcy
no we are not.

Saying inter would've gone bankrupt if not for selling X Y Z player is silly.

ah fuck that headlines is just silly, its hard to put an equivalent example, but a company is not "bankrupt" if it can sell 2 non core assets and replace them, with no impact in performance (revenue). And its not the only variable (we wouldn't have added salaries if it were not for those going out).

Also if not for Onana and Brozovic, we have at least 3 more valuable assets (Lautaro, Barella, Bastoni) that if we ever sold we'd pay coupon and face value of the loan.

And lastly, what is bankruptcy for them? How do they know we would fail to pay coupon? Yap all they want, but we have a stable amount of $ coming our way from CHL and more cashflow in future with this Club World Cup, and a commercial situation that can only get better. For fucks sake we have basically been surviving without a sponsor.

This.....
Think about it this way we were kind of close to bankruptcy in 2020 when suning took out the Oaktree loan without which we would have had a fire sale or indeed gone bankrupt. But since then our financial situation has massively improved every year.. So to write an article or eve a head line like this now is in bad faith at best.
