    Of course it’s a money thing from those opportunists and I don’t like it one bit .... but I can’t help laughing at the Premier League saying “it attacks the spirit of open completion and sporting merit”  .. what and your league has 10 times the income of the league below which you use as cannon fodder for your super league ?

    Is nobody else fed up of that garbage sport? It's gone too far. 
    Watched a bit of United earlier and saw Marcus Rashford blown over in the penalty area. Then this... 
    Don't give em your money.

    A club with delusions of grandeur. Below is a 1961 Hillman Minx, this is what people were driving about in the last time Tottenham were the English Champions.

    I wouldn't want this to happen, purely for the sake of the proper fans of those clubs.
    It's important to remember, behind the American billionaire owners, the multi-millionaire players and agents, the corporate sponsors and the armchair fans across the globe, the likes of Manchester United and Man City are proud football clubs that are followed home and away by real people. People whose support spans generations.
    I hate the billionaire owners, but not enough to destroy those people's football clubs.

    From what I've read and heard about Damien Lewis, he seems like a really decent guy, such a shame for him.
    Between them they've been in Band of Brothers, Homeland and Peaky Blinders. Pretty impressive stuff.
    Also, I saw Medea a few years back too, but in Watford with the actress who went on to play Mackenzie Crook's girlfriend from The Detectorists. Was incredible too.

    I don’t think for a minute that he is a genius. I think he has done ok with some of the youngsters. He has been measured in his post match stuff. He isn’t afraid to change things mid game or before a game. Sometimes well, sometimes not so. 
     
    He’s been dealt a tough hand with the whole money thing, change of ownership, Bielik and Lawrence being injured, no way to bring in a serious goal threat. .. He’s a rookie in a poo storm and has done ok. Starting again with another face doesn’t seem like an intelligent idea right now.

    I saw her live in Medea at the National. Unforgettable ! She had real power and passion down her marrow. A huge presence on stage and in TV/film. 
     from the tributes it sounds like she was a real trooper rather than a precious diva. So sad.

    Great post jono, agree totally, The PL are pooping themselves because it would be the end of their gravy train, that is their sole motivation to this suggestion.

    Well said Gary Neville, however the foreign owners don't care about tradions or working class fans. They bought the "brand"
    All they are care about is TV / online subscriptions and revenue streams. 
    They will be happy to fill stadiums at £5 a ticket to ensure an atmosphere in the knowledge x millions of peoples are paying £5 to watch online. 
    This was always on the cards when foreign money was ushered into various leagues. 
    Barcelona circa 1bn in debt and the Milan clubs racking up debts left right and centre. I wonder why the owners think a super league is a good idea.....?

    Premier League and  Sky talking heads using words like 'disgraceful', 'greed', and ' selfish. I don't recall the same organisations saying similar in 1992, what's different?

    No, sorry, I was saying the opposite. You'll remember the decisions that go against us as its a form of confirmation bias. You'll not see so evidently the decisions that go in our favour, or you'll gloss over them as warranted, justified or not so controversial as the ones against us. 
    Over 46 games it has to be negligible in its impact.

    I thought you said in your earlier post we had been unlucky in relative terms ? I think we have .. not by a great degree and we are we are are on the balance of luck, skill and whatever else. It does go both ways for all sides - I always remember that Tom Lawrence header after Bennett’s cross in the dieing  moments - that was one where we were flipping lucky but the number of games where 1 goal has been key and we have had the rough end this season ? . The balance hasn’t been with us .. but .. hey it could swing the other way in the next 4 games and parity willl be restored

    I'm sure every club in the division can point to injuries and bad decisions that cost them points. We aren't where we are now because of a few bad bits of luck.

    Gregory, Mengi, Edmundson. Davies, Stretton.
    What's made it a crisis is the total lack of depth and holes in our squad.

    The fact that our players, better and otherwise, are dropping like flies, so we have a bench full of teenagers, would have nothing to do with our difficulties?
    We should have had at least a point yesterday. We didn't but it wasn't down to the manager - I imagine that takes some digesting, how to deal with that. He's not got that much managerial experience, he's undoubtedly got lots to learn.
