Subject: Spot on about the gate receipts - that was the day football as we knew it died. What followed was an inevitable result of that. The irony is gate receipts now no longer matter - allowing the likes of Bournemouth and Watford to dine at the top table with no great disadvantage compared to - say - West ham.
In reply to: f bloke 's message, "I agree with much of this, the sky- ification is bad enough but football lost its soul the day they agreed the home team keeps all the gate receipts. This created the wealth gap and then the Gordon Gekko sponsored premier league came along where that gap got bigger. Then you add the demand for instant gratification from the fan base (as evidenced by a number of over regular posters on here) and the total lack of loyalty in the game - Slavs sacking means we are as bad as the rest of them. I have to say I am holding on by my finger tips right now" on Wednesday, March 13, 07:43:56am
