LONDON —Real Madrid and Barcelona are footballs biggest moneymakers for the
third straight year and look set to out-earn their rivals for the foreseeable
future. Andrew Luck Womens Jersey . The annual review
of football finance by Deloitte shows Madrid topping the list for the seventh
straight year with revenue of 479.5 million ($636.5 million) to the year ending
June 30, an increase of 9 per cent on the previous 12 months. English champion
Manchester United was again in third place with C367 million ($487.2 million),
the highest of four English clubs in the top 10 earners. Bayern Munich was
fourth with C321.4 million ($426.6 million), with Arsenal, Chelsea, AC Milan,
Inter Milan, Liverpool and Schalke next. One more year at the top for Madrid
would equal Uniteds No. 1 streak from 1997-2004 but the accountancy firm says
on-field success could yet push Barcelona into first place next year. Barcelona
trails Madrid by seven points in the Spanish league but its revenue increased 13
per cent to C451 million ($599 million) and it could rise further if the team
retains the Champions League title. Defending Spanish and European champion
Barcelona receives about C30 million ($40 million) per season in a sponsorship
deal from the Qatar Foundation and earned C51 million ($68 million) from the
Champions League, beating United 3-1 in last seasons final at Wembley Stadium.
It can already count on C3.5 million ($4.65 million) toward next years total
after winning FIFAs Club World Cup in December. “This may allow it to narrow, or
even bridge, the gap to Real,” Deloitte sports business group partner Dan Jones
said. “However, relative on-pitch performance, particularly in the Champions
League, may determine next years top two Money League placings. “Both clubs are
closing in on revenues of C500 million and are likely to pass this threshold
within the next few years. Each clubs annual revenues have grown by almost C200
million compared with five years before, a remarkable achievement.” United is
certain to trail again next season after its early elimination from this seasons
Champions League, only the second time it has failed to progress from the group
stage in 16 seasons. Madrid and Barcelona have both advanced to the last 16 and
have such earning power that even a move to collective bargaining for broadcast
revenue—the model long employed by Englands Premier League—is unlikely to
affect their financial dominance. “The gulf may widen to over C100 million next
year,” Jones said. “Spanish clubs are currently negotiating a collective model
for the distribution of La Liga broadcast revenues, potentially from 2015-16.
“The revenue advantage that Real and Barca enjoy over their European peers
indicates that a more even distribution of La Liga broadcast revenues would not
necessarily challenge the two clubs dominance at the top of the Money League.”
Madrid earned 36 per cent of its revenue from commercial activities such as
merchandising and sponsorship, 26 per cent from matchday income, including
ticket sales, and 38 per cent from broadcast agreements. The top 20 clubs in the
Deloitte list generated a combined C4.4 billion ($5.8 billion) over the 2010-11
season, about 3 per cent up on the previous years C4.3 billion (then $5.6
billion) Tottenham rose above Manchester City to 11th place following its run to
the quarterfinals in its debut Champions League campaign, but City could
leapfrog its English rival next year after six matches in this seasons group
stage. Borussia Dortmund, Valencia and Napoli were newcomers in the top 20,
replacing Atletico Madrid, Stuttgart and Aston Villa after a season of greater
domestic success. French champion Lille was the only winner of one of Europes
five major leagues—Spain, England, Italy, Germany and France—not to make
it into a top 20 entirely composed of European sides. Deloitte said that
Brazilian clubs Corinthians and Sao Paulo, with reported revenues of between C70
million ($93 million) and C80 million ($106 million), would only make a top 50
list. Dwight Freeney Jersey .76 seconds in the 100

ANGELES, Calif. – The Arizona Diamondbacks scored each of their runs in
bases-loaded situations. The Los Angeles Dodgers kept putting runners on, and
stranding them.That was the difference between Wade Miley and Chad Billingsley
on Tuesday night.Miley wiggled out of a couple jams while pitching into the
seventh inning and the Diamondbacks snapped the Dodgers five-game winning streak
with a 5-1 victory.He just did a great job for us, and thats what we needed
tonight, manager Kirk Gibson said. He had 72 strikes out of 102 pitches. He
maybe started labouring a little bit later in the game, but it was big for him
to get as far as he did for us. Thats how hes been pitching all year. Hes got a
great tempo. He throws all of his pitches in any count and uses the whole
plate.Miley (4-1) scattered eight hits and walked one in 6 2-3 innings, limiting
Los Angeles to just one run on Mark Ellis homer. The 25-year-old left-hander is
3-1 with a 2.35 ERA in five starts since being inserted into the rotation on
April 23 to replace Daniel Hudson, who is out with a right shoulder
impingement.A win anywhere is a big win right now, Miley said. Weve been
scuffling a bit, but tonight we put some runs on the board and kept them at bay.
I was just trying to stick with the plan.Miggy (catcher Miguel Montero) called a
great game and we didnt get away from the plan. Everything he put down we went
with, and I was fortunate that it worked out. He was telling me to keep
challenging guys, throwing quality pitches and throwing strikes and let the
defence play behind me. I was commanding the fastball early in the count and
getting ahead.Ellis finished with three hits in the Dodgers first game since
centre fielder Matt Kemp went on the 15-day disabled list because of a left
hamstring strain. They still own the best record in baseball at 24-12 and lead
San Francisco by six games in the NL West.Billingsley (2-3) threw 77 pitches in
four-plus innings and was charged with four runs and eight hits in his 200th
regular-season game. The right-hander is 0-3 with a 5.34 ERA in his last five
starts, a stretch that began with a 12-0 loss at Houston in which he lasted only
3 1-3 innings.Arizona loaded the bases in the second when Miley reached on a
strikeout-wild pitch after a two-out intentional walk to Aaron Hill. Billingsley
then walked Gerardo Parra to force in a run, but he minimized the damage by
retiring Willie Bloomquist to end the inning.The big reason we jumped out to the
lead was Wade hustling after he struck out, Bloomquist said. Thats just a little
thing that probably wont show up in the box score, but thats whaat kept that
inning going.ddddddddddddThe Diamondbacks opened the fifth with six consecutive
singles, including run-scoring hits by Justin Upton and Montero against
Billingsley and another RBI single by Jason Kubel against Javy Guerra. But
Ryan Roberts grounded into a 5-2-3 double play and Aaron Hill grounded out with
a chance to break the game open.We got six hits in a row, and we havent done
that in a while, Gibson said. Guys have been loose, even though weve been going
through tough times, and tonight we got rewarded with some results.Lyle Overbay
drove in Arizonas fifth run with a sacrifice fly in the seventh, again with the
bags full. The Diamondbacks came in 6 for 30 in bases-loaded situations.The
biggest thing was getting the bases loaded, and guys came through with big hits,
Bloomquist said. We were threatening in virtually every inning to score. Not to
look at the negative, but if you were trying to be picky, we left a lot of guys
on base. The positive is, we had a lot of guys on base. So we were making things
happen and we executed a lot better.Dodgers right fielder Andre Ethier, who won
his first Gold Glove last year, started in centre for the first time in seven
big league seasons — and caught the games first two outs. He also made a diving
catch to rob Upton of a hit in the sixth.I kind of laughed to myself after that
first pop fly was hit to me, said Ethier, who also started the 2010 All-Star
game in centre field and played 90 minor league games at that position between
2004 and 2005.Youve just got to be ready. You cant be saying: Dont hit the ball
to me. I was out there wanting to track down stuff and just trying to be
aggressive and knowing where my teammates were going to be on certain balls.
More than anything, I just wanted to have fun with it out there.NOTES:

this season. ’ ’ ’
