Kitsondinho It is an awful deal. The bailout looks good on paper, but with the ability of the top 6 clubs to change the way the money is distributed on a whim, they’ll have changed the terms within 2 seasons. It is nothing more than a power grab by the richest clubs in the country. Far from saving the pyramid, it will kill it. Why is this deal being floated now? They had no interest in ‘saving’ the EFL two years ago.... I hope this goes the same way (and as quickly) as the ridiculous 39th game...Sadly it seems many EFL clubs are being blinded by the short term monetary salvation. It isn’t worth it.
Absolutely. It is like a heroin dealer praying on someone, waiting until their life feels hopeless and worthless enough that they are vulnerable enough to accept their proposition, that they would normally laugh off. This plan has been three years in the making, don’t forget, why wait until now when football outside of the greed league is on its arse for it to see the light of day?
I just wish the so called big six would oxford off to join the European super league With no relegation or promotion that they want to do ultimately, and leave the rest of football to carry on without them. When Man Yoo have had 10 years of being effectively the Harlem Globetrotters of European football I hope they are still enjoying themselves beyond some people watching on tv in Asia.
I had hoped Covid 19 would act as a financial wake up call and re-set for the game, but instead we have the Orwellian some men are more equal than others attitude of the big clubs of the English game when the rest of football needs their help in a time of crisis. I’m getting more and more comfortable with the idea of just walking away from being interested in the professional game in this country. It’s their ball and they can Oxford off home if they want to.
