Just thinking from what I can see we have Sky Sports, BT Sport, Premier Sport.
Eurosport and Free Sports.
Only free sports seems to be free, the others are in some way behind a Pay wall.
I was thinking about for instance the Eurospots League 3 - and Serie A for that matter don't have a big handle or sales in UK anymore - and was wondering really why, and does anyone have all of them, and whats the price for some?
I have Sky Sports only, decided against the others despite Sky Sports seemingly dropping a lot of sports - especially Rugby Union they seem to barely bother with anymore, ok they have the Lions currently but not notice advertising anything else rugby wise - including the Rugby Championship which has been on for years.
Cricket they are more into but wonder if the fees are less, and even then I've seen different things going elsewhere.
Currently watching the Marine v Spurs match - and yes I'd fancy them against us if we were playing, but it got me thinking how good is it, would you fancy a side from that kind of level to beat say SAn Marino or Andorra?
Just wondering wat a giant killing it would be in the respect of sides such as those mentioned who get to play against top level players regularly.
Marine have one international.
As I understand it they are 3 promotions from the Conference.
Here's what I think the suits, media and PL would love for their Closed Shop Wet DReam league.
1 - Arsenal 2- Man Utd 3- Liverpool 4- Man City 5- -Chelski 6 - Tottenham 7 - Leeds 8 - Aston Villa 9 -Newcastle 10 - West Ham 11 - Wolves 12 - Derby County 13 - Notts Forest 14 - Leicester 15 - Sunderland 16 - Southampton 17 - Sheff United 18 - Sheff Wed 19 - West Brom 20 - Sunderland
This is my kind of idea of the sort of table they might like if they coulkd close the shop so to speak, not an opinion of who should or should not be in the PL. Also based on the kind of stuff you hear about certain clubs.
Should be in PL - massive side, huge support base etc etc.
This is never something they talk about with QPR - who deapite are London base don't get the London biased media darling sort of stuff others do.
Watching a bit of footie from the Pass Back days - I can't remember when the change happened but I've often wondered why sides didnt pass around more with 2 defenders and the keeper killing time off more - I imagfine the 2010-15 Swansaona side would have made a lot out of that.
Not sure if you could keep doing that kind of thing though and they were tedious enough as it was.
