    I completely agree with Premier League clubs being forced to contribute more to grass roots football. Not sure how anyone could have an issue with that.

    How much more?
    "The Premier League argues it is still paying seven per cent to grass roots, but £100 million of that goes towards Football League solidarity payments. From the remaining £100 million, £24 million is sent to the Football Foundation, the charity which was due to distribute the profits from the Wembley sale."

    A politician making statements he has no control over to a bunch of people with no idea but think it sounds great... lovely to see.

    100% of profits seems fair.

    There is nothing in what he says that I could remotely disagree with; far from being clueless he is speaking a lot of sense

    It’s just propaganda. How much control does a PM have on the Premier League? I’m gonna go with zero. He wants to appeal to the working class and it will be a great sound bite but not even remotely close to where his or his party’s priorities should be.

    Seven percent, but half of that does not leave the leagues? What a bizarre quote to choose to back up your argument.

    Premier league clubs are really struggling aren’t they?

    As fans we need more. 3pm kick offs are the obvious one and the expense of the packages is too high but why don’t they start with an easy one, why the fuck can we not choose the matches we watch when there are multiple fixtures? City v wolves wasnt televised in the UK, Chelsea v Southampton was for some reason.

    I’d dearly love someone else to win the rights just for a change. Best case we get Netflix style service, worst case the piracy continues.

    I have a Netflix style service for football matches. Costs $120 for the year and I love it. All Premier League and UEFA and League Cup matches.

    But it is really taking away the opportunity for the less affluent, esp youth, to experience and be a supporter.

    I think it's counter intuitive to keeping customers.

    I've just renegotiated my virgin broadband & phone deal (which I have to do every year cos they jack the price up loads & I call & say I'm gonna cancel & like magic it comes back down after a half an hour call every bloody year), & they offered me tv with sky sports HD on top of the free bt sports, for just £15 a month more.

    If I didn't already have to pay a tenner a month for streaming to watch the 3pm games, I'd have done that, but I'm forced to pay for the streaming anyway, so I may as well watch it all on that.

    So Jeremy Corbyn wants to fairly distribute wealth in football, meanwhile his "deputy" wants to bolster the profits of Sky & BT.

    Get rid of him Jezzer!
