No relegation from premiership is being muted but only in the event of another curtailed season.
So, in effect, that means no promotion/relegation throughout the entire football pyramid.No relegation from premiership is being muted but only in the event of another curtailed season.
I'm bored of the Premier League expecting something in return for this. The government need to be taking the lead and putting in place the necessary steps to regulate them accordingly.Seems an announcement is coming soon ..we can but hope it does and without strings atached
I’ve hinted at this earlier, but whilst I agree the PL is greedy and something needs to be done about it, I’m not sure how that’s related to the current crisis.I'm bored of the Premier League expecting something in return for this. The government need to be taking the lead and putting in place the necessary steps to regulate them accordingly.
If each PL team sacrified £10m each, it would solve this problem immediately.
But this is the PL - they don't want to spend anything on anyone else apart from themselves. And sadly, many managers are taking this same tone too.It’s difficult to just come out and say so and so owner is worth billions therefore he should fund his club. Some not so wealthy owners are as dodgy as fuck so handing over a wedge with no strings is a no no.
Bank reserve £393m where is this money held?What is so frustrating is that in a normal year, nearly £4bn of money comes from TV broadcasting both at home and abroad in all domestic competitions.
I ran a spreadsheet a few months ago to sort of see how a redistributed model would help clubs thrive all the way through the pyramid. Based on these principles:
-Support redistribution through the divisions in a fairer way but at the same time, promote more of a merit based system and prize money for higher league placings.
-Eliminate parachute payments.
-Promote the cup competitions. The fact that there is zero prize money before the final in the League Cup is a joke. Give the FA Cup a proper winners cheque.
-Promote academies and reduce the impact of EPPP giving them meaningful funding.
-Promote the professionalism women's football.

*The numbers are based on a normal year - obviously with rebates this differs somewhat.
Its quite sad that such a small % of the money could have such a massive impact.
