The latest proposal from Liverpool and Manchester United has baffled many and there will be more people supporting Everton in the Merseyside Derby.
According to the Telegraph, Liverpool and Manchester United have come up with a ridiculous proposal that would lead to massive changes in how the Premier League works. The Reds pitched the idea of revamping football culture in England by taking bold action.
The supposed reform led by Liverpool and Manchester United could see the Premier League transform into a top six-centric league and could see significant financial variations as well. The key points of the proposal are:
1. Big Six to make decisions for the league
This is a clear attempt to ensure the Big Six have a bigger say in the affairs of the league. It can have a lot to do with the programming of games and other financial aspects.
2. Stop of the League Cup and the community shield
With the Big Six involved in European competitions, they could play over 50 games in a season. Stopping the League Cup and Community Shield will relieve the pressure and allow the top six players to recover more.
3.18 Premier League teams
The reduction of 2 teams from the current league will ensure that the current clubs get a larger share of the payout.
4. Relegated clubs will not receive any parachute payments.
This is another point focusing on the financial side of things. Stopping the parachute payments will not seriously affect the relegated clubs as they will already lose a lot of broadcast money and the parachute payments will ensure some cash flow.
Every point of this proposal exudes the arrogance of Liverpool and United. Clubs backed by American businessmen are planning to restructure the league with the goal of making it more sustainable. There has already been a lot of uproar around the £ 14.95 pay-per-view and the latest proposal from Liverpool and the Red Devils will receive more criticism.
Teams are preventing clubs from making their voices heard, jeopardizing equality of speech in areas that are simply unacceptable. When Everton take on Liverpool in the Merseyside derby, there will be more support from neutral fans or fans outside the top six for the Toffees.
There must be a real protest against the intent of the Reds and Red Devils. Everton enter the game at the head of the table with 4 out of 4 wins while Liverpool come to the Merseyside derby following a 7-2 humiliation against Aston Villa.
The Merseyside derby will be an opportunity for every neutral fan to show their disagreement with the latest proposal developed by Liverpool. This is a clear attempt to intimidate clubs outside of the top six or lower midrange clubs.

No matter how Liverpool or Manchester United paint it, a proposal like this should never be accepted. Everton are also supported and the protests on social media will be a slap in the face for Liverpool and Manchester United.
