how many times had we played them before gartside?

That's a picture from the upcoming book "Camberwick Green Street" by Windy Miller. Excerpt: I remember one time me and Mr Caraway the fishmonger decided to teach those Trumpton cunts a lesson once a

Funny how your green and gold shit died a death when they started to win things again. Something similar kicks off again when they've now won fuck all for years. Strange how all those Sky Reds an

It's harder to not qualify.

Up until the second round you have to try very hard to get knocked out of the final tournament too, same with the World Cup. Ruined it really, 16 team Euros were perfect.

First defender on the team sheet for me. All the others need to fight it out

 

Agreed.

We've some decent attackers but most of our defenders are shite at defending.

I see the big clubs want even more domination

They'll pay out £250 million to keep EFL clubs going through the pandemic if the PL can be reduced to 18.The two big red clubs are behind it.Knew United were owned by twats, seems Liverpool are too.

Some of the other proposals
 
League Cup and Charity Shield abolished
 
Later Premier League start to give more scope for pre season tours
 
Clubs allowed to have 15 players out on loan and up to 4 at a single club
 
Financial fair play rules in line with Uefa, PL to have full access to club accounts - City and Chelsea won't like that one!

Feared that Covid would be an excuse to change football forever and it will never be the same again.

Does the plan have merits tho? The parachute money is unfair. The Big Six untouchable anyway? £250 million would stop a lot of EFL clubs going bang. Got to be better than that City mons idea of 'B' sides in EFL. No?

The proposals, dubbed Project Big Picture, would see:

  • The Premier League cut from 20 to 18 clubs, with the Championship, League One and League Two each retaining 24 teams.
  •  
  • The bottom two teams in the Premier League relegated automatically with the 16th-placed team joining the Championship play-offs.
  •  
  • The League Cup and Community Shield abolished.
  • Parachute payments scrapped.
  •  
  • A £250m rescue fund made immediately available to the EFL
  •  
  • £100m paid to the FA to make up for lost revenue.
  •  
  • Nine clubs given 'special voting rights' on certain issues, based on their extended runs in the Premier League

 

 

Ex Liverpool chief executive EFL chairman Rick Parry says "reforms will benefit game as a whole" :)

Didn't I hear that 25% of PL profits would also go to the EFL each year?

A nice carrot to dangle but, when I consider the two clubs pushing this I smell a big fat fucking rat. This wouldn't be being pushed for philanthropic reasons - there must be a massively larger slice of the pie to these two for them to be pushing it.

PL is a not for profit organisation isn’t it, only there to provide money to the 20 PL clubs 

What’s stopping the PL pushing more money to PL clubs so they make less profit or even non at all! Thus EFL clubs get jack shit

Exactly

Just a stepping stone to their eventual target of a European super league that’ll be closed off and be a franchise based system like the NFL.

Their patronising offer of some spare change from their TV deal is pathetic.

Just fuck off, you won’t be missed.

PL proposal is largely bullshit

20 clubs currently get approx £150m from the TV deal, so they share £3,000m
Reduce to 18 teams and "give" the EFL £250m.

So, 18 teams will share £2,750m = £152.8m each, so the 18 are actually going to be initially better off.

And if the 3 EFL leagues remain at 24 clubs, are 2 League 2 clubs getting booted?

So, basically, less fixtures to give them more time to do out of season tours of the US and Asia

The money they make from preseason tours is absolutely incredible. 
I went to Hong Kong China and Japan, and the promo they have is all year round, awaiting PL coming over, it’s World Cup style promotion, billboards, buses the lot. 

Then the clubs set up pop up shops all over the destinations months before hand selling anything with a club badge on it, and they sell out. 
Then the games are sold out, I think United has their games in Japan on PPV.
