  1. From the sounds of it I think UEFA are currently in the process of screwing up the european competitions in how they want to change them going forward. I believe the owners of the top clubs are extremely concerned that their future revenues are going to dry up in a big way but I don't think this would help them and rather they are using the threat as bait to try and get a better TV deal. I would call their bluff to be honest and if they follow through and leave then its good luck but I won't be following!
  2. Can't pretend I know the investment numbers but I would be surprised if Birmingham were outspending us by much. Birmingham only scored 5 goals in 13 games when the season was stopped last year but managed to score 4 yesterday. Maybe its a mix of lack of investment and low confidence but I think its a bit too easy to blame it on the investment side.
  3. Third goal, was it a cross or a shot? But a few years ago the woman's team managed to win (lots of 1-0's from memory) games like this, after losing 3-1 against Arsenal I would have hoped for a closer scoreline there. Wonder if Arsenal played a weakened team at all for that game, think they played Man City a few days before or something like that. To be fair to Bristol Sport they have had a PL team for many years (before a lot of other teams jumped on the bandwagon) and except for Reading and Birmingham I would expect all the other teams to invest more if we are being equal. And
  4. Would have killed the game if Pickford was sent off, still very lucky though. The offside call at the end was more of a scandal for me personally, lots of spin on Henderson's shot but Pickford got away with another one there too. He made a couple of good saves but very much a mixed performance.
  5. Only listened on radio, shame that we couldn't get a win but so many games coming up plenty of chances to pick up positive results. First half sounded poor but second half got the 2 goals and possibly more, if we keep creating chances then we will continue to rack up pts. Poor ending but need to see the incident. Bring on Boro!
  6. To be honest I picked Huddersfield because I heard their new owners are not as good at the previous ones (although I know nothing else about them other than that), selling your goalscorer when you are a bottom 8 side strikes me as very worrying too.(although it could also be perceived as responsible and careful planning) Wycombe because they're doing badly so it would be easy to cut their losses because not that many people will care, I believe they're American owned (feel like that might mean they're bad for the english game after the last week) but have never looked further into their o
  7. None of them are viable as companies at the moment and so I would say its all about which owners have the deepest pockets and who are least likely to want to cut their losses. I also wonder if there is likely to be a domino effect too. Very uneducated guess here but I will say Coventry, Birmingham, Huddersfield, Barnsley, Cardiff and Wycombe as my 6 to fold before xmas.
  8. That's probably just his 8 foot henchman, who also has metal teeth. Or maybe less excitingly it's just a 3D wallpaper?
  9. Does this deal really guarantee that L1 & L2 clubs won't go bust because they are still significantly prevented from making revenue for an unknown period of time. They are all going to have a blackhole of the best part of a million pounds each at an absolute minimum and as clubs gates go up so will the deficits. Will some owners just use the money to cover some of their losses and come back cap in hand or alternatively go bust in a few months time. Also nice to see Villa go against this (I see they aren't liked much on here but credit for once), as for Cardiff and Vincent Tan supporti
  10. Do any famous figures remind you of Bond Villains? Max Zorin is a very good match for a young Donald Trump, he ended up falling to his death from the golden gate bridge after his plan to destroy America failed... Is Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp actually a hired assassin named Locque? Might explain why the person behind VAR has given his team so many benefits of the doubt. Apparently this is the inside of Bill Gate's home, Dr No much? And just to confirm Gates is definitely not a doctor!
  11. I agree, I don't know what the voting percentages required are for this to pass but I expect that almost half of premier league teams and half of the championship clubs will be against this proposal (the pay off won't be enough compared to the current pay off of premier league status). The idea is for the big clubs to give cash to struggling owners in order to gain control of the game going forward, there is no doubt that it will benefit the big clubs in the long run and the rest get an instant pay out, win-win except for people who value the competition. Now I am being suspicious bu
  12. So is the money to fund this going to come from the bottom half of the prem's TV money? Might turn the prem into a bit of a non-competitive bore but I guess Man U and Liverpool etc won't mind because they will benefit from the lack of competition. As for the efl teams I hope they have the sense to say no (especially if the voting rights means the big clubs can bring in sweeping changes later) but I think the owners will be looking at the initial payment and deciding on that.
  13. Still if the subscription payers are going to be paying the same money for lower quality games then I don't think that's right. It's almost as bad as when they put started putting less jaffa cakes in a pack.
  14. I think the most vocal opponents of the blackout are the Man Utd (and other big clubs) fans who don't go to games so want to watch the games on TV at that time. I wonder if there is that many people who will bin watching their local club play in order to watch Man Utd vs Norwich at home. The cost factor is probably on their side though. As for sky box office having games that sounds like a bit of a piss take, I would have thought that Newcastle v Man Utd is a TV game every single year so it will be interesting to see if they change their usual picks in order to try get the better games on
  15. Unlucky after having a pretty good bounce back from the 9-0 drubbing, it was looking set for a possible first league win of the season. But Birmingham at home in a weeks time is winnable too.
