Rick 'friend of Liverpool' has to go for this. Clearly in cahoots.

Hopefully this is the end of the matter, but I doubt it.


Greg Clarke the chairman of the FA has proposed Premier league 1 and 2 again and B teams. This will never go away until the elite get what they want. Why is the game being run in thks country by so many people who haven't got a clue?

I find it strange Rick Parry is in command of the EFL given his links with LFC. He’s biased and always will be. Why not just let Liverpool play Man United in their own two team league forever. Can the EFL teams vote to get rid of both of them? I wish.

Won't need to bother about this for a few years if GC stays as we'll be non league.

Hopefully, this evening, one of the poisonous two, Manchester United, lose to one to the teams that they don’t deem important enough to have an equal say in the Premier Leagues governance. Despite them being a much better run club financially.

Come on the Toon.

Apparently "top" premier league clubs in talks to form elite European super league.. Wonder if man u are allowed in seeing as now nothing but bang average and man City and arsenal who have never even won Europe's top prize be allowed into this elite money grabbing club.

So the latest on Project Big Picture or ‘How to shaft the national sport so a few clubs can make themselves richer’:

Rick Parry has not done the decent thing and resigned.
Greg Clarke has been found out telling untruths about the timeline and is basically a stooge for the big six and has not done the decent thing and resigned.
The promised bail out money, now in the form of an advance in next seasons money has not yet been issued.
Clubs are floating the idea of not paying their taxes en bloc as a solution. What a sound business mind the owners have when they put their heads together.
West Ham Fans are still not allowed in but can watch the game in a cinema within 500 yds of the ground.
No further PBP proposals have been published.
The EFL still have not appointed the independent directors as they were recommended to during their own independent governance review.
I-follow still favours the bigger clubs when it comes to monetary distribution. (This definitely needs addressing as it is a sort of PBP lite tv deal).
Newcastle Fans, God bless the Geordie nation, are illegally streaming their games and donating the money they would have given Sky to the local food bank.
Our elected member after grandstanding and getting, what passes as a Prime Minister these days, to mention the clubs name in Parliament, has not offered nor stated anything regarding Project Big picture and how it affects us.
The National Team, after 28 yrs of the Premier League (which we were sold was set up to further the national side), has still not got further than the last World Cup in 1990 (Losing semi-final) and recently lost to Denmark.
Players still take the knee though clubs are up in arms that the FA are threatening to make signings from outside the EU be a full international. How does that sit with the slavery angle of buying a 16 yr old from Nigeria?
The FA bangs on about inclusion in football but has yet to say anything against Quatar and its societal moral compass?

Up the Stags by the way. Being a Stags fan makes you feel a lot less slimey than those at the top.

It is being being televised, though is it our demise or will it be the revolution?
