City need to remember where they came from....

Post by blueboy on Mon Jun 12, 2017 1:30 pm

The Premier League's 'Big Six' — Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham, Liverpool and Chelsea — continue to demand a bigger cut of the television share. They argue that as overseas packages are sold on the allure of the elite, they should get more of the £3billion raised.
One hopes that whoever is in the room representing City at least has the humility to look a little sheepish around the other 14 clubs. Less than a decade ago, City were one of them.
As much as the Premier League is now sold on elite competition, it was built on the challenges of those on the outside: Newcastle, Leeds and Blackburn were once title contenders, Charlton and Bolton nearly made it to the Champions League.

As Leicester proved spectacularly last season, the league thrives on the possibility of upsets — Bournemouth's fightback against Liverpool this season, Crystal Palace's defeat of Chelsea. When Ian Ayre, the former chief executive of Liverpool, said 'there isn't anyone subscribing in Kuala Lumpur to watch Bolton', he was wrong.
Maybe Malaysian Trotters fans are not plentiful; but fans of what a team like Bolton can achieve on their day most certainly are.
And while we might not expect the privileged elite of Manchester United or Arsenal to get that, we did rather think Manchester City might understand: because not so long ago, they were just the sort of club a big five were looking to exclude.

I don't think it's right that the top 6 ask for more money. They are getting enough from the tv deal by being on telly more often and from finishing higher in the league. Endorsements make them streets ahead of the others. So they should be happy with their lot.

I am all for an equal share out amongst the premier league clubs. I hate it when certain clubs get
privileged above others just because of name & past History.

Tottenham being the club in question at the moment. Their ground is up for re development, so they ask to play all games at wembley. What happens if they get to the F.A cup semi final or any domestic cup final? do they play at a neutral venue? as it would be an unfair advantage to play at home.

To me it under values the privilege & honour of playing at Wembley or is that just being sentimental?

The Wembley experience was fucked years ago.....

Does anyone 'really' care about the fact a cup final could be played at Wembley? I'd only go to see my team, not the fact it's at Wembley...so they could play it at St James' Park for all I care.

We're screwed now and all semis will be played at Wembley. Why don't they go the whole hog and have 1/4 there too?

Do you think that's because you're no longer living in the UK Oz?
