How much is promotion really worth to Crystal Palace?
DID Kevin Phillips secure a bonus for his decisive goal that saw Crystal Palace beat Watford and qualify for the Premier League? If he did, were calculations based on what victory in the Champion play-off was worth to the visitors?
What is it worth? Let’s see:
£145m – Daily Mail
£135m – The Times
£120m – Daily Mirror, Daily Telegraph
£110m – The Daily Star
Meanwhile, Hull who must be cursing their luck. Bloomberg said their promotion to the top flight in English football was worth £90m.
It’s almost as if the experts just guess.
