Long ago realised football is fooked in this country, thanks to the Premier League attitude of "what is ours, is ours, what is yours is ours too".

FFP, EPPP and general screwing over of any smaller clubs.

Well highly amusing that the Prem elite that don't get to play in Europe screaming at it all being soooo unfair that those that do are picking up megabucks.

Swiss Ramble latest tweets show just how much, but even more amusing is the way payments are skewed to previous performance so the elite can attempt to perpetuate their rule.

A Swiss Ramble Through Ajax accounts
at 09:33 8 Mar 2019

For those who are intrigued by numbers, the hugely productive Swiss Ramble has just posted up his analysis of Ajax on Twitter.

Found this little bit interesting.



For some perspective, the club finishing top of the Premier League received around €170m, while the bottom club got €108m, i.e. 12 times as much as #Ajax €9m. Basically, Ajax get the same as an English Championship club that does not benefit from parachute payments. https://t.co/0GU9tWGwcG

Shaun Harvey Footnote
at 13:04 25 Feb 2019

From today's "Sports Agenda"

Who benefits from Shaun Harvey's departure?

Many Championship clubs, still angry at the £595 million five-year TV deal agreed last November, were pleased to discover that the EFL and chief executive Shaun Harvey will go their separate ways at the end of the season. But some lower league sides have told Sports Agenda they saw Harvey as a welcome buffer to stop Championship clubs from hiving off a bigger slice of broadcasting cash.

Thursday’s meeting for all EFL clubs at Derby County’s Pride Park is certain to be lively, although hopefully it won’t be plagued by the confusion that has affected past EFL summits.

Grimsby Town majority shareholder John Fenty told a fans’ forum event last week how meetings led by Harvey would become a mess because nobody knew in advance what the EFL chief wanted to discuss.

‘It drove us bonkers,’ said Fenty of a meeting in 2016. ‘Everybody was absolutely fizzing because they were being asked questions about something they knew nothing about.’

Cheers Mr Harrington
at 21:13 13 Feb 2019

That truly was a clusterfnck last night. Six bookings all after 90 minutes played according to Opta and the potential for the FA to join the "Let's make an example of QPR" club

Grant Hall, booked 91st minute for dissent
Darnell Furlong, booked 92nd minute for a foul
Toni Leistner, booked 92nd minute for dissent
Jake Bidwell, booked 97th minute for arguing with the referee
Joe Lumley booked after the final whistle for dissent
Pawel Wszolek booked after the final whistle for a foul
Because the visitors from Loftus Road picked up more than six bookings that will trigger a fine from the FA - and it will be more if it has happened earlier in the season for the West London side already

It is £5,000 for a first offence but doubled after that, according to rule 9a of the FA Disciplinary Handbook.

Further, given the confrontations with referee Harrington after the final whistle there may even be a Breach of FA Rule E20(a) – that the Hoops players did not conduct themselves in an orderly fashion - if the referee deems fit and his report may be eagerly awaited by senior officials at Loftus Road.

Bet even if they do read it, across the EFL many will still fail to comprehend and be demanding new signings in the current defenestration period.
