'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Stick Your Global Brand Up Your ****

A worrying report on BBC Sport today suggests the money greedy men who run the Premier League might be looking to take OUR teams global with some ties being played abroad.

Apparently at a meeting in London the 20 clubs agreed to 'explore' the chance of extending the season to 39 games with some played abroad. What? Expand the games, the same games that the managers contstantly moan are too many already?

The PL is now being looked at as a brand or even a franchise as opposed to something there for the fans. How far will it go before they realise there is only so far fans can be pushed?

IT IS CALLED THE ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE.

The BBC claim the 10 extra games would go to the highest bidders and the teams to play would be drawn with the top five teams seeded. Oh ffs, sod off and leave and frigging game alone.

The changes, if given the go ahead, could be there for the 2010/11 season.

The co-chairman of the Football Supporters Federation told the BBC:

'I'm fairly confident in predicting that the overwhelming majority of football supporters will be totally opposed to this proposal. This is yet another case of the Premier League threatening the tradition of our game simply to follow money. What I want to do is put a challenge to the Premier League to abandon this completely if the majority of supporters turn out to be against it. The idea that teams can play a league game in a place where their supporters won't be able to go and watch them will be totally opposed by the vast majority of supporters.'

Must admit, that for me could well be the straw that breaks the camels back, it is bad enough we have to go and watch OUR teams play at stupid times - for instance this weekend the Newcastle United fans have to be down at Villa Park for a 12:45pm kick off, but if they take OUR teams abroad as well, sod it, no chance!
