If the SL happens, one of the potential (good) unintentional consequences could be the binning of parachute payments. Also would be a good time to restructure the divisions to 20, 22, 22 and 22 with three up and three down at all levels.

A new broom should always sweep clean!
Hilarious they couldn't spell Will's name. Also having him the left sided player in a back three is just nonsense!

Picked the wrong Robbo
Have we started a trend? Sack the manager and put youth team coach in charge.

If it goes ahead I'd give it 5 years max before they kick out Spurs and bring in River Plate or some random Chinese Super League club. And then lets see how Spurs do with a loss of £350m in SL revenue and no Champions League TV revenue to replace it.

4 players in sky bet team of the week. Impressive. Until you see the pleb they put in charge.

The rumour was that the mood Hoover and his staff refused to take training. I’m sure he’ll dress it up that he was making a stand, Saint Jose

How many managers have been sacked less than a week before their team is playing in a cup final?

I see A4E beat me to it on Jose. And Lurks, it wouldn't stop players playing, just block them from playing in competitions outside of the leagues. So no restraint of trade, merely implementation of an organisations rules as in the case of the cup tie.

Nick they may not be able to do that BUT what they could do is say that the parent league for those 12 teams is a foreign league therefore a whole load of extra paperwork and cost is incurred for registering them. That'd have some impact.

The likes of Rashford appear to value playing for their country and might wrangle accordingly. The likes of Pogba would say ‘if France make up my £200k a week shortfall....

Be honest, until national teams get to a tournament, the entire thing is a drain. Perhaps they’ll go closed shop too and we won’t have to put up with Saudi Arabia or Scotland any more at international tournaments!
Mopurhino gone apparently.

money talks trebor. disgusting really. I'm not a fan of leicester since they knocked us out of the cup in 97 but it was great them stopping those so called big clubs from winning the league in 2016

I bet that hurt the so called big 6
I fear any legal case would support the big clubs.

If the rest of football banned any loans in from the bubble league teams (ie if you are contracted to them you are banned from any other football) then if they did hoover up dozens of players they would be left with nowhere to play or develop them. It’s really all a matter of the rest of the clubs standing together- ultimately these self-proclaimed “big” clubs need the rest of the game more than we need them

I went to the OTD game. The main thing I remember was John Fashanu doing odd, time-wasting things like throwing the ball back into the stands when the ballboy gave it to him.

Of course, there's nothing untoward about John Fashanu. A fine, upstanding yeoman of the community.
It's pretty obviously not based on history.

Also it makes you wonder how Leicester might feel about the whole thing. PL champs a lot more recently that a lot of the "big 6" and currently higher in the table than 4 of them.

Why are Man City classed as a big team anyways. They have only starting winning things since these billionaires bought them. On history they are not a big club.

Sandy: I suspect the big clubs will try bunging the EFL some hush money, like they usually do, and maybe ask for B team in the league too. On a wider level, they will hoover up more players and it'll lead to more wages inflation.

Thanks REPD & Lurks - that's what I thought. I was just wondering if I was missing anything.

(Again) thinking out loud - the impact on L1/L2 will be on the big clubs who have already slipped or will slip into this level. If the financial benefits of being in the championship and EPL drop then gambling against the rewards to pay for a promotion campaign might significantly drop. Meaning that the clubs that slip down may struggle to get back up.

Down side for us is the likes of Sunderland, Hull, Ipswich etc being in the same division as us. They may have to cut their cloth but their cloth will still be swankier than the likes of us and Accrington.
Morning all. Sandy - not really TBH. If we play those sort of teams in the FAC/League Cup they send weakened sides anyway, and it's not like we get too much money at the best of times.

IMO lower league football won't be worse off.
