Talking about the money, half of mine was raised when I sold my whole 2nd league team in season 126.
After that I sold all my staff and played the next 10 seasons with minimum expenses, gathering about 1,2-1,3 million in the end. Some of it went back to staff and players in the meantime.
Funny part is, I use paysafe to buy premiums and the difference goes into "money". I guess that sums up to about 10 k with all premium renewals..
Money still not back
