    No mention this week on here about the significant attempt by the ‘big 6’ to share the overseas TV money according to league position rather than equally. Clearly everyone is to busy posting negative post after negative post about our current predicament.

    Anyway a truly horrible idea. But a nugget buried in an article on the Times today suggested that we (along with West Ham and Everton) provided ‘cautious backing’ to the idea. It was a secret ballot so no one knows how the voting went.

    Delusions of grandeur?
    Evidence that our owners retain the same ambitions for us to be competing at the top?

    Who are the big 6?
    If it's premier league winners, it has to include us and Blackburn!

    Arsenal, Manure, Liverpool and 3 others I assume. The two new ones are probably Man City and Chelsea. No idea on the last one....Sheff Wed? Forest? Us?

    In terms of premier league, what makes Liverpool big?

    Only three clubs (Man U, Arsenal and Chelsea) have won more points than Liverpool in the history of the Premier League.

    So they've got longevity on their side, but they're under achievers like Everton, Spurs, Newcastle et all
    Clubs that think they are big.

    Jeering at the underachievers aside, the big 6 are mostly defined by their turnover, with the two Manc clubs at half billion a year, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool a £100m or more less, then Spurs at a quarter of a billion. The rest of us are a big step down from that.

    Over the 25 years of the Prem, Chelsea and Man City have made a money-fuelled climb up the pecking order, and Everton have slipped out of the self-proclaimed big 5.

    In terms overall achievements, they are big
    In terms of achievement in the premier league, they are also rans.
    Blackburn Rovers have achieved more!

    Any club outside of those 6 that backs this proposal is a shambles run by fuckwits. End of fucking discussion. All 6 can **** OFF...then when they get to wherever they FUCKED OFF to they can **** OFF from there as well. Then they can carry on FUCKING OFF until they've circumnavigated reality & ended up back where they began. Then they can **** OFF all over again.

    Agreed, it's like someone voting for a colleague to get some of their pay because they're in a better place in the office. Nonsense.

    Would make the weighting in the league worse.

    I think it was 35% to be allocated according to league positon, the rest to be spread equally. The domestic money is to a certain extent determined on league position, so I don't quite see the need to get knickers in a twist TBH. By the way, a vote was not taken, it will be discussed at a future meeting.
