This is what I can find online with a quick search.

Bristol City losses

2016: 14.9m loss & 17.4m wages.
2015: 15m loss & 9.9m wages.
2014: 6.9m loss & 8.6m wages.
2013: 11.2 loss & 15.2m wages.
2012: 14.4m loss & 18.6m wages.
2011: 11.45m loss & 15.9m wages.
2010: 11.8m loss & 14.5m wages.
2009: 6.5m loss & 10.2m wages.

And I am with Rich, the thought of the slavers in the Premiership doesn't bear thinking about, they are arrogant enough already (I have 6 or 7 mates that support them) they will be unbearable.

I am pretty sure the year stated is the season ending in that year.

As Matchworn says since pre 1982 when they first went bust.

I also hate their arrogance, especially in view of their massive long-term underachievement, despite all the clear spoonfeeding that they've had.

They're way below Oxford in my level of dislike. If there's one (non-Swindon related) football wish that I could control this season it would be to keep them down.

Peterborough has their AGM last night.

Among the interesting things reported
They lost 1.4m last year (to June 2017)
The chairman has agreed to allow the manager to sign new players, but they are currently at 96% of what they can spend under FFP rules.
And this is preventing them extending the loan of their goalkeeper as Reading want an additional payment to extend his loan until the end of the season

She's old enough to know better. No chance of any of us reaching 100 given the blood pressure levels of the last 3 seasons and consequent alcohol intake as a coping mechanism.
