  1. Excellent piece. There are a number of owners who seem determined to kill any type of competition in the league on either a sporting or financial level. Fear that the whole issue will be sidetracked by the foreign ownership issue which has very little to do with the real danger here as you rightly pointed out.

  2. We certainly need a football revolution, but pulling up the drawbridge is definitely not the answer. I wrote this piece a few weeks ago about how to revolutionise the Premier League.

  3. Jertzee says:

    There is a part of me that wants to stick up two fingers and tell the PL where to go.

    Then even go one further with full and proper promotion and relegation throughout the pyramid (i.e. at least 3 up/3 down between League 2 and the Conference).

    Then exclude all the PL players from the England squad (they might win something or at least behave less like spoilt brats).

    And lastly, ban the selling of English players to PL sides.

    You never know……
