Mr Angry If a load of clubs do go under, and taking into account the likely impact on TV (and other) revenue streams (after all, if we have 3 Million unemployed, football season tickets may not be a high priority to many), then I would suggest that this would be the perfect time to do a reorganisation of professional football in England.
They should be looking at fewer professional teams, and regional leagues feeding into the smaller professional league system, in effect, moving towards a greater extension of the non-League pyramid system.
The discussion earlier in the crisis that players in the EFL should be paid a maximum of £6,000 a week - which sounded reasonable - still means that a full back for AFC Wimbledon would still earn approxiamately twice as much as the Prime Minister (regardless of the individual in that role).
I would suggest that such a business model (which was unsustainable before the Covid-19 crisis) is now utterly doomed; the situation had been artficially created by the obscence amounts of money coming into the Premier League from TV deals that club owners in EFL clubs want to get their hands on, and many - like Reading - have over extended themselves financially by over-paying wages to (generally) mediocre players - believing that they would recoup the outlay and more by achieving promotion to "the promised land" of the Premier League.
The reality is, that for many people, and indeed the Country, there is no "going back to normal" after this crisis - why should Professional football think itself so special that things will go back to as it was for them?
Agreed, and in favour of the football league reducing size of the leagues to 20 clubs each. Fixture congestion at our level needs looking at and this could provide a great opportunity to do it.
