sorry if this has been posted
found this interesting report on the championship clubs accounts: ownership, profit, loss, debt and the wage bill.
as of august 2015.
both qpr and bolton are over 180mil in debt and blackburn, ipswich and cardiff all over 80mil in debt..
the interesting one for me was derby. looks like they can hold there own financial wise with the only debt being 15m mortgage on the ipro stadium - view external link (http://www.insidermedia.com/insider/national/146216-championship-club-club)

Very interesting figures !! Our turnover is larger than Huddersfield, 3.5 times greater than Brentford, twice that of Bristol And Preston and only 2million less than the massive sat S6.

There are about 6 teams who's wages and salaries are significantly greater than their income, now that is a recipe for disaster !
Some of the turnovers are very surprising for instance Burnleys turnover is a quarter that of fellow Lacashire clubs of Blackburn and Bolton ?
Does it all suggest that TS and his men have organised the commercial side par excellence ??

Not many clubs making a profit there.

Owning a football team is a mug's game.
