Think this weekend confirms I can’t really follow the PL anymore.

Watched Liverpool, could only think of how pointless it was that 2 or 3 teams are so far ahead of everyone else. Nearly had to smash my radio up when 5 Live were trailing the NUFC game... ‘real supporters don’t boycott, Steve is a good manager, Ashley will be there so it’s pointless to protest’.

Don’t think it’s healthy TBH, have to switch off.

I think the league looks like it's going to be incredibly boring this year. Watched a lot of games this weekend and Spurs Villa was the only half decent one, and that was only because Spurs went behind and had to come back.

Anyone else cant stand Sky Sports FIFA-style approach to line ups? Can't stand it, all so cringe. Good ol' days of just the names then put into the formation and you get on with it. All so needlessly dramatic these days.

My interest has been slowly dying for a while, been half watching games for ages now. Even when Rafa was here it was clear he was getting shafted and progress was being deliberately stunted from above. Again.

You can only see that playing out so many times before you simply get bored of it. Now we're back to a self serving moron in charge it's almost impossible to give a s***.

They had Waddle, Clinton Morrison and a female player who I can’t remember the name of, all basically pushing that same line.

I don’t know why they get Waddle on as if he’s a Newcastle person, it’s weird.

It’s disgusting. People who watch football for free and have little to no idea what it is to be a normal fan. They should have done humility and shut up.

Football’s the worst sport for television punditry out there. Filled with w*****s toeing the party line, people not wanting to offend their pals, patriotic nonsense, lack of imagination and thick ex-footballers who are stealing a living (someone else’s as they’re already rich enough). It’s baffling how uninformed most of them are and how narrow the variety of opinion is. Almost everyone trots our the same s***

EDIT: EFL apology https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/49312316
All done due to betting regulations. f***ing pointless considering the leagues themselves have technology that they share and provide to betting companies which is faster than a human can transmit the data.
Betting in football is hardly covered in glory at the moment, and having people employed to threaten to throw out fans is just going to push fans away.

"Manchester City FC was found to have breached, among others, article 19 of the Fifa Regulations on the status and transfer of players.
"The disciplinary committee took into account the fact that Manchester City FC accepted its responsibility and sanctioned the club with a fine of CHF 370,000."

315K. That'll learn 'em.
Obviously, I'm speaking of a hypothetical world in which there is a greater club than Tottenham.

I'm sure they'll strike a 315k deal with Etihad faucets or whatever to cover that.

I know a few bitter Liverpool fans whose main patter is a stream of invective about Citeh’s cheating, stealing the league et al. I’d be more sympathetic if, you know, they weren’t Liverpool fans.

Fact is FFP is a farce and some clubs enjoy unfair advantages - but one whisper of stronger enforcement and you’ll see stories about a European Super League flood the news services...

TV now funds football, so it's only right that TV dictates that it is designed to suit their format. f*** the saddo fans, with their passion and all that emotional s***. We want people who are so devoid of any meaning they'll pay £90 per month to stay in on a Monday night to find out what happened to a dragon's egg, or something.
