The FA are showing themselves up for what they are. Pigs with their heads in the trough and not got the bottle to take it out and face reality.
It would be good next season in the prem if they did that, but what about the teams in third etc etc. Mind you they might have to re structure the whole comp, as there might not be enough clubs to go round, the debt some of them are in.I'd say season ended now, no relegation and promote top 2 from each league, then bottom 5 in premiership relegated next season to get the numbers back to where they are now. Sure the teams in the playoff positions will argue but as non are guaranteed to be promoted then surely that argument can be dismissed.
Teams who would qualify for playoffs are not guaranteed promotion so in my mind they would have no legal basis to challenge the ruling.It would be good next season in the prem if they did that, but what about the teams in third etc etc. Mind you they might have to re structure the whole comp, as there might not be enough clubs to go round, the debt some of them are in.
Give it a break Lee, I took my lad to a sunderland game and while we were waiting for the team coach to arrive this fella turns up in a 100 grand motor and walks off into the ground.I said my lad I bet he's one of the top players, who is he? he replied the reserve goalie. FFS.Can never understand the "they are greedy" attitude one bit.
Apart from a very few who do want more,they are nothing more than employees who will work for an employer who is prepared to retain their services and pay their market worth for as long as they want them. That is no different to anyone else regardless of what profession they work in.
Their's is a short professional career and for most they have nothing else to fall back on.
Most will start with young families and their priority will be to ensure that their families have the best thing's in life,the best thing's that for a lot of players worldwide their families and themselves never have. Very many never even had the basic thing's we treat with contempt.
Don't ever begrudge someone for wanting the best for themselves and their families because if any one of us was born with a talent to do well we would be doing exactly the same . To say we wouldn't is absolute b*****s
