I assume a big part of the problem is clubs are leveraged to f*** and so when a revenue stream dries up they soon rattle through their cash.

The epitome of an irrelevant football club.

So basically he's saying the league structure is f***ed so lets accept removing actual competition from Football so that Football clubs (of which the entire point is competition) can survive.  f***ing tosser.

Just get more and more angry with everything i read on this. EFL clubs love it? Of course they do its free money to cover up years of incompetent financial mismanagement. Good on the shankly trust and FA, those behind this plot should be shot.

I'm not sure I completely understand how the current system is forcing lower league clubs to go broke to be honest. As far as I'm aware overspending is endemic down there and it's down to mismanagement and poor regulation. Poor business fundamentals and the pandemic are killing them, this would be killing them even if they were getting a bigger slice of the premier leagues money.

Absolutely, if they'd received 25% of the current PL TV deal a few years ago, they'd all have raised their revenues by the same amount in a attempt to compete with each other and the PL clubs.  So they'd still be right on the profit/loss line now and still f***ed by the sudden drop in income.

It's a non-starter surely?

The only worry would be that a set of less extreme proposals have already been drawn up, and all this nonsense will make the next proposals look more attractive in comparison.

Although large sections of the media do seem to be behind this - they don't have to give it so much attention and support but they are.

All you have to do is look at SSN in the afternoon and you can see there’s an all out propaganda campaign to get people used to the idea of this.

Two automatically up/down. 16th goes in to a playoff with 3rd-5th.

I don’t think the other PL teams would accept it. Basically it stops them from any takeover in the future.

So, reducing the Premier League from 20 to 18 teams - Project Big Picture. The bad news is... it doesn't work. But... look, big picture, so what? Maybe we shouldn't be in the football business at all, maybe we should look at human rights or global warming. I mean, these are just ideas, but... where's the humanity? I suppose that's what I want to ask you today, if anything. Where is the humanity?

idk man, this is 2020!  not in its current format but i could see them getting their way by offering some small crumb to the other PL dumb f***s who'll take it without thinking of the future repercussions

i've lost faith in anything good ever happening again though, so there's that

Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

It's so short-sighted and changes the entire reason football "should" exist.
