Man Utd and Liverpool’s Premier League and EFL proposals are insulting and disgusting – Stan Collymore

Elite Premier League clubs, led by Liverpool and Manchester United, are using the global pandemic to take control of football. You’ve got an economic downturn, people are losing their jobs and clubs banned from leaving fans on their turf, and the best dogs in football have decided to take action.

They offer incentives at lower levels to settle down as unopposed rulers of the game, cementing an unopposed aristocratic status.

I find it insulting, insensitive, and it makes fun of a semblance of top-down solidarity.

I am disgusted that they think they can get all the power and veto to lead the Premier League, throwing the desperate club below the money they so badly need. Anger cannot express how I feel.

A good start to changing the bigger picture of the project would be to go ahead with the finances of that plan, but not the power play.



I am appalled by the owners of my old club

Giving a £ 250million bailout, yes. Give the 100 million pounds to the FA, yes. Everything as proposed.

Yes, we should have a mission statement of what the Premier League is.

Number one: “The league, as the game’s keeper, will give EFL clubs 25 percent of TV revenue because we have realized that Wimbledon, Tranmere and Oxford are as important as Man U and Liverpool. One cannot survive without the other.

But dissociate that from the elite having full control to reshape the pyramid.



EFL chief Parry is playing his part in things

If we give the top six (Man U, Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs) and the other three longtime Premier League members (Everton, West Ham and Southampton) all the power, we will come to a position where the balance is so bad that we will have Premier League B and C teams in League one and two.

We will have young 16 year old players playing against real pros.

We will even have these nine clubs that can prevent a club like Newcastle United from being taken over by a wealthy owner because that would make them a threat.

What we have had for over 100 years could be wasted in two or three years. Are we ready to do this?



The Glazers want to make sure rich men can’t take over other clubs to compete with them

We accept the monetization of the game, by being called customers, but not this precious pyramid in ruins, and made even less competitive than it already is.

In the Premier League’s first period 92-2000, as a player I thought the dark days of terrible installations and stadium disasters were over.

It was a new product that regenerated English football and that everyone would benefit from. More people watched on TV, Klinsmann, Juninho, Cantona came here to play, and everyone enjoyed it.

Football was multi-faceted, Liverpool and Man U at one end, Wimbledon at the other. Different styles, lots of characters.

It was like an opportunity to start and further support the pyramid. Stafford, Kettering, Chorley, everyone enjoying a runoff.

Sunday’s statement was an insult to those early hopes, and to what it might have been. It is more and more money.

How much can we earn for ourselves? Emboldened by Sky, BT, the Champions League. Second kits, third kits, EA Sports special edition kits. The ambition to be the biggest sports product in the world, bigger than the NBA or the NFL.



Liverpool like to say ‘It means more’ – this vision proves the opposite when it comes to owners

I am appalled by the role of my former club Liverpool. Or rather with FSG owners.

Shankly’s club is run by Klopp, who is someone I would call a socialist and community spirit.

They have failed to tap and become greedy Americans who want more power and money to allow their club to become permanent football lords.

For FSG, ultra-capitalists, it is about having more say, more power. They say: just give us control, leverage to make even more money, maybe in a European super league, or negotiate more with the TV companies.

The Premier League’s elite have pulled away forever, breaking away from the traditional fan base.
