The End Is Nigh.....

Man United, Man City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and maybe Spurs would all be keen for there own TV rights deal,


With maybe Aston Villa, Everton and Newcastle worth considering.


But unlikely that they would get the 14 votes required, unless the teams left, would benefit from a larger share, which of course it will not as the deal would be hugely reduced without the above teams.

I always thought that the Spanish game was flush with cash like the englanders, but I remember watching a couple of games and the commentators commented on one of the managers taking a pay cut and that a club record buy was 800,000! this was what I always considered a big club as well - can't remember exactly which club. It also appears that the wages are considerably less than the english pay. Everything goes to the "big 2"

This is what I recommend the clubs in Scotland do to Rangers and Celtic, ostracise them, highlight their avarice and greed and corruption for what it is.
