Powerful people are upset? Well, that's pretty unusual since it's the powerful people who make the decisions. Of course, it's only the powerful people who count. That's why there's never true democracy.
£595 million! You must be joking.I'd offer £50 per televised game and a set of used goalposts.
@152.MichaelErrr! Definately a wind up! DCFC have more fans in Belgium than Sheffield have in Sheffield and around the World equates to millions. Remember Branko Strupar, look it up. Combined Leeds and Derby, more than 55K a week.sorry mi owd China!
On my remote, the red button makes a private call to the Prime Minister of a potentially lost island outside Europe.If anyone wants a chat with her, it's £2.99/minute, shes currently having a massive private party.
Big clubs in the championship like Wednesday and Sheffield United are being short changed by the new tv deal.A combined home crowd of 55k these clubs are massive and are worth much more from Sky.Smaller clubs like Leeds derby villa should also be paid more, but less than the steel city giants!
I'm struggling to see what the Football League actually does apart from bow down and brown nose the FA and Premier League hierarchy ..surely they should be fighting the corner of the 72 ,they seem to just roll over for a few pieces of silver..anybody would think they are working for the interests of the PL clubs and FA more than those they are supposed to represent.
#143No chance.NASA are under presidential orders to put humans on Mars before 2033.That will happen before Leeds and Villa are promoted to the premier League.
148 wolf359Exactly laddy, exactly. Ma club play their fitba in the Champions League, which is all aboot the champions. That’s coz we’re champions, and one of the biggest brands and clubs the in the world. Wee clubs from the Championship don’t play anywhere in Europe.
@145.Thanks for the laugh.It's Scottish football that is the joke.Your SPL Champions cant get past the first round of the Champions League and ALWAYS have to settle for the consolation prize of the Europa League.Your National team only scored those seven goals in two matches against opposition that was even weaker than they are.When UEFA say out of Europe Means out of Europe you'll be stuffed.
Greed , When I found out Evans was on on 20k a week for Sheffield Utd 5 years ago before he got jailed you have to think what planet these EFL clubs are on.Cap your wages.
They don't want anyone to go to games, that's it really.
There’s nae powerful people in the English Championsship. Just wee clubs.The only powerful people in British fitba are in ma club, and in the PL top 4. Thats where the power is laddy.
If the "bigger" clubs in the EFL are serious about making a difference perhaps for a start they could stop taking players from the Prem on loan and set a low cap on what they pay agents. Then when a game gets changed by Sky go to their local police commander and express concerns about safety in writing. I.e. Sheff W v Leeds was 3pm, changed by Police to 1215 then by Sky 745 on a Friday.
When Villa and Leeds get back into the Premier League that deal will look like a good deal!
@134 "Historically the best supported 11 teams are: Arsenal Villa Chelsea Everton Liverpool Man City Man Utd Newcastle Sunderland, Spurs & Wolves."Which season was this?
Currently the away team in the Football league gets £10k if they are on TV for some this is not an issue because they are never on. Leeds are regularly on Sky and their fans get messed around no end. Why Leeds because Sky want to show games where there is some atmosphere and Leeds fans are some of the few that provide that. Some clubs are carrying the rest and this deal makes the situation worse.
