Also some suggestion in The Athletic that the rules would stop spending on things like branding shirts and stadiums with the owner's name/company.

The EFL will not be able to do any of its own sponsorship deals etc.  We will probably see identical billboards/hoardings at every stadium in the country. 

 

Unclear how this would relate to shirt sponsors etc.

I would guess because it is a way round spending limits - I'm not sure why it's important with the salary cap though.  Just something mentioned in the Athletic.

FSG and the Glazers believe, according to the Athletic, that one reason the PL is so intense is the huge cost of relegation and so the desperation to avoid it. So their solution is basically to reduce that gap by giving us more money and giving lower-end PL teams less

 

Exactly,  Henry has said in the past he can't see the point of relegation and promotion to and from the championship.

 

He thinks it's wrong that teams come up from the championship with no intention of competing. Just happy to take the big money for a season, content if they are relegated to get another £80M in parachute payments over the next 2 seasons, get promoted again and repeat.

 

Ultimately if the American owners get their way, there will be no promotion and relegation, just like the NFL.

When did Henry say that? FSG have said they support promotion and relegation.

 

The reason smaller clubs want a closed PL is so they can eventually challenge the big clubs, so I'm not sure why the bigger clubs would want it.

Now there's a shock

Steve Gibson has written an article in the Daily Fail giving the proposal his full backing

The Americans don't like a drawn game either how long before we get shoot outs at the end of drawn games?

 

Just seen this on twitter.

 

Plans to channel money from the new Premier League Pay-Per-View games into lower-league football clubs have been scrapped because of the fallout from Project Big Picture, Sky Sports News has been told.

Over as soon as it started.

 

Unsurprisingly voted down today by the rest of PL clubs.

And the PL teams who voted it down want Parry to resign for a conflict of interest...so should the EFL teams

Bailout of £50m in grants and loans to League 1 and 2 clubs according to Dale Johnson. 

 

£20m up front and £30m held back to support clubs needing immediate action to prevent winding up.

Rejected by all 20 PL clubs....so Liverpool and Man U voted  against their own proposal?

 

Probably agreed to drop it in return for the rest going a long with further discussions.

Full Premier League statement

 

"All 20 Premier League clubs today unanimously agreed that "Project Big Picture" will not be endorsed or pursued by the Premier League, or The FA.

Further, Premier League Shareholders agreed to work together as a 20-club collective on a strategic plan for the future structures and financing of English football, consulting with all stakeholders to ensure a vibrant, competitive and sustainable football pyramid.

Open and transparent process

Clubs will work collaboratively, in an open and transparent process, focusing on competition structure, calendar, governance and financial sustainability.

This project has the full support of The FA and will include engagement with all relevant stakeholders including fans, Government and, of course, the EFL. 

Rescue package for Leagues One and Two

Also at today's meeting it was agreed to make available a rescue package which aims to ensure that League One and League Two clubs will not go out of business as a result of the financial impact of COVID-19 and be able to complete the 2020/21 season. 

League One and League Two clubs rely more heavily on matchday revenue and have fewer resources at their disposal than Championship or Premier League clubs and are therefore more at risk, especially at a time when fans are excluded from attending matches.

This offer will consist of grants and interest-free loans totalling a further £50million on top of the £27.2million solidarity payments already advanced to League One and League Two this year, making a total of £77.2million.

Talks on Championship finances

Discussions will also continue with the EFL regarding Championship clubs’ financial needs. This addresses Government concerns about lower-league clubs' financial fragility. 

Football is not the same without attending fans and the football economy is unsustainable without them. The Premier League and all our clubs remain committed to the safe return of fans as soon as possible".

Should be noted today that the PL has agreed to provide a paltry 50 million to League one and two, plus further money available in the forms of loans.

 

Operation powergrab was a joke and the PLs alternative is embarrassing in a different way.

That £50m is only a loan as well isn't I?

Yes, an interest free loan.

 

Rotten to the core.
