    Rushie and Accrington Stanley

    as usual, jose feels he is standing on the shoulders of giants when posting on threads such as these...... much thanks, colin, ad, et al, for some STELLAR posts and good, honest, UNBIASED commentary on all matters lfc unlike some severely deluded muppets on this board...... anyhow, back to the subject at hand, it is a shame these clubs are struggling.... in italy, the reverse is happening with serie A poised to break away from the rest of the league.... jose thinks this is one thing platini has got right.... getting the big clubs to balance their books is only one aspect of it..... now if he could enforce colin's idea of percentage of the tv money going to the lower leagues....... the problem is that the premier league is seperate and it's own entity... it isn't part of the football league..... at this point, it would be hard to reverse the trend, but not impossible..... jose sees the possibility of a breakaway european super league as imminent soon unless somethign is done..... with the european super league will surely follow the demise of the national leagues.... obrigado friends!!!!

    • Jose...Yes with u there . Saw it, breakaway Euro Super League, coming many moons ago...not in favour of it , never was. With the coming of this new Euro competition with more clubs than ever from EPL involved it seems inevitable with the consequence of the game we love becoming even more of a biz than a sport.In fact pretty safe to say we arrived at that point some considerable time ago. My own future as a fan...with the breakaway to any Euro Super League think I will end up watching local league stuff with a few hundred others of a Saturday...who knows maybe there are more like me in which case could be I WILL BE IN THE COMPANY OF A FEW THOUSAND WATCHING RATHER THAN A FEW HUNDRED lol

      • I've already decided that next season I'll only be paying to watch lower league football. I'd be on AFC all the time but whats it doing over in Prescot? Surely they could have set up nearer to town?

        Its all about money - the EPL was formed to rake in the lions share of the cash, and now the European league thats on the horizon will do the same and leave the Premier League in the same bad shape as the old Football League is now. Like you say Colin, best thing is to leave paying to watch top flight footy to the corporates and TV viewers in the Far East & USA. Though the standard isn't as high in the Vodkat or divisions 3 & 4, at least you're involved with football for football's sake.

        Anfield on a weekend game these days is embarrassingly quiet anyway - almost as bad as the Bridge or the Emirates. So its hardly worth the 36 notes to sit down surrounded by silent day trippers and Scandinavian tourists who are more concerned with taking photos than turning the ground into a nightmare for the opposition and getting behind the reds.
