What the fizz were arsenal thinking here? Clubs these days are run by soulless, parasitic ********. Poor bloke having to rely on the charity of a player to keep him in a job.

Arsenal have been absolutely embarrassing during Covid.

 

To think they like to think of themselves as the classy London club.

Surely Man U are going to sign a CB? 


Agree their defence is an absolute joke and has been for a few years. It’s been coming.

 

During their glory years they were based on having a strong back line.  
Schmeical, Van der sar in goal 

The likes of Bruce, Pallister, Stam, Johnson, Ferdinand, Vidic, Neville, Evra, Irwin in defence. Keane, Hargreaves, Butt, Carrick in midfield.  
Right now their goal keeper and defence are worse than Burnley’s.
How Henderson isn’t their number one now is bizarre.  

 

I don’t think their manager is helping the situation.  Is he trying to improve the defence? There’s no evidence of it at all, in fact it’s getting worse. 
 

They should be throwing the Sancho money at their defence or they will be conceding a lorry load this season.

Games outside the scheduled televised ones in the Prem will cost £14.95 per game on BT or Sky :laugh: 

 

Lauaghable from all concerned. 


Genuine question here because I feel like i’m missing something amongst the backlash over this, but how does this differ from what every EFL fan has been having to do since football came back post-lockdown with iFollow?

Efl clubs charge a fiver less for a stream and are heavily reliant on gate receipts some of whom wont last until the end of the season if crowds don't return in some capacity. PL clubs don't rely so much on this due to the obscene amounts they get through the TV deals. Charging anything more than £10 is just ripping off fans who won't want to miss their clubs games.

They’ve had all summer to figure this out as well. Instead, four games in, they’ve now decided to charge for something that they were previously showing for no additional cost on top of Sky/BT subscription.

 

Apparently it wouldn’t be viable for PL clubs to set up something like ifollow whilst Sky & BT have a ready product. Bizarre considering the status of the clubs in the FL who can, as well as the three promoted clubs who did with ease. This is the same organisation who arranged a £5m whip round for Scudamore’s leaving present.

 

In the next few weeks our games against Pigs, WBA and Palace are all box office. £45 to watch three televised games, one of which is Monday at 5:30pm. I won’t be paying.

And they wonder why free internet streams & dodgy digi-boxes are on the rise.

Interesting piece in today’s Telegraph. Rick Parry (remind me what club he used to run ) apparently on board with plan to reduce PL to 18 teams, EFL to remain at 72. Scrap League Cup and reduce play off spots from 4 to 3 and allowing 3rd bottom in PL the chance to stay up via playoffs. In return EFL get a £250m bailout from PL

Some of the proposals appear quite positive. The worrying part is the changing of the golden share and the idea that all the power will be in the hands of the big clubs

Selling the EFL cheap again. Surely the price starts £1bn or the 2 premier League teams left out need to find themselves new leagues to play in. 

 

Rather than put  two league 2 clubs effectively out of business, rather do this on our terms than be blackmailed to fit in with the latest PL plan for the 'top' clubs to hoard a greater share of money.

 

Why not open up to a fair vote of all 92 clubs, each with a vote of equal say. It's not just for 20 teams to dictate the structure of a league system involving 72 other teams, who would be impacted to a potentially greater degree.

The one that made me laugh (through the anger) was this top 9 clubs getting to vote on the prospective owners of other clubs.

 

I mean, that's not even slightly dodgy...

Parry apparently agreeing to it leaves a rather nasty taste imo.....

 

Anyone would think the ex Liverpool CEO got himself the top job in the EFL just for this moment...........

It’s no surprise tho. It’s been coming for a while - they’ve just chosen a very opportune moment to leak the story.

Be interesting to know who recommended Parry for the job given his past.
