League Restructure

Recommended Posts

Nothing more than an attempted power grab by the top 6. If it goes through it will kill my interest in football entirely.

Just why should a few billionaires be allowed to control our game. This is the inevitable consequence of the formation of the Premier League. Unless it is stopped now, we will see a US style franchise system within a few years whereby there will be no promotion and relegation, and clubs like ourselves effectively frozen out of top class football.

Dangerous to every club apart from the top 6 in my opinion. I think the PL may as well have come out and said they were scraping Promotion and Relegation, which I think is their ultimate aim.

The scheme is being vaunted as a way to lessen the financial gap between the top flight and the championship, I think EFL clubs will vote for it out of desperation.

for the other 14 premiership clubs it would be like the turkeys voting for Christmas

 

You could argue that most turkeys wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for Christmas 😃

Including Steve Gibson who is 100% behind the scheme according to reports

But with all the 'power' resting with the sides in the current top 6 I can't imagine it being anything other than self serving.

I believe the Leagues need reform and the wealth a little more widely distributed, but who's to say they won't just renege on the agreement once they get the first opportunity.

Very disappointed with Gibson for backing this.

He’s probably had enough of ploughing millions into the club every season.
 

I don’t blame him to be honest, this way the club gets a lot more money from the Premier league. We are never going to break into the top 6 of the prem, so the new deal can only affect us in a positive way.

    • Does anyone else think we will struggle to get any players from the Premier League on loan?  I think the managers might look at the Roberts situation and think that their player might get more game time elsewhere.. just a thought. 
    • Every football manager players eyes light up as they furiously scout South American regens.
    • Tav's injury has probably heightened the need for some creative flair needing to be added to the squad. Am I the only one that is wondering if it's the boots that Tav is wearing that is causing him to slip? The Ground staff didn't have a normal summer to reseed or relay the pitch or whatever they normally do but lets face it the Riverside pitch is still light years ahead of many if not most at this level. I didn't see Spurs or Man City players slipping any more than their lesser opponents in the cup. Come to think of it I didn't notice Blackburn players slipping much either. He seems to be wearing these laceless Mutator Predator boots (happy to be corrected) if my eyesight is not deceiving me. Are they also the same boots that Marcus Browne was wearing? If so that is two players down due to footwear as much as the state of the pitch. About time NW issued them with good old fashioned brown boots as I used to call them with real "men's" studs! Meanwhile we are now scouring for loans and additional wages that the Club can ill afford.
    • The new work permit rules will make it harder to sign European players but it will now be easier to sign players from outside the EU.
    • That's really sad. I think for the forseeable future we can't really buy top-level proven championship players. So we have to rely on international and young unproven players. I was a little bit worried last season when our new signing like Bola, Dijkstell and Browne did not deliever. I'm much more positive about the future this season, I think we have a solid squad now. If we do some smart transfers next season can be great.
