    They were talking about this on the debate last night. Well, they were talking about tv fees and so on. Simon Jordan, do you remember that guy? haha How could you forget? Anyway, he was talking about how much power a manager really has. Just funny to listen to how a business man presents it. His hair is shorter now. He did say that the manager should never have to take a player he doesn't want. If the owners had that much power then it should be them picking the team. etc Was quite interesting.

    My first time in London is coming soon. If I went as a child it was with parents and so on. I don't think we did. Going to WTF. Hopefully luck shall give me an enjoyable match. Something off the bucket list. Watch pro tennis in person. We're just going to stay over for one night.

    Was that the Crystal Palace owner for a time? I remember him having a David Beckham ‘98 centre parting :D

    I think we’re at a crossroads with the tv fees personally. The money is astronomical, whilst there are so many companies getting in on it and trying to outbid each other that we’re needing multiple subscriptions at higher prices, other sports are having funding cut as a result and the matches that are being shown are quite frankly uninspiring. There was Swansea and Newcastle a few weeks back, Bournemouth and Brighton, Palace and Burnley was the Sunday game two weeks ago etc..

    @Tiki-Taka will no doubt have knowledge on how they do things in Spain, I think it’s along the lines of each club can negotiate their own tv rights for their games. That would be ideal, but I can’t see it happening. The less attractive clubs won’t want to give up their slice of the massive tv payment.

    Oh nice! I’ve only been once, 2010 I think it was. I saw Djokovic and Murray play a tight 3 setter in the afternoon session. Definitely have to keep your fingers crossed the luck of the draw/schedule falls your way!

    Yep, that's him :D He is still holding on to the boyband look only it is not on such a grand scale. hahaha

    Those matches you mention, no disrespect to their hardcore fans, but they are not the game for a casual viewer. I never thought, hmm, never thought is wrong, I just never thought that hard about the possibility that a transfer fee for one player would be higher than a fee I paid in a videogame Now we are here.

    Yes it's along those lines, the new law was approved by Spain two years ago. It still benefits the country's biggest two clubs but probably to a slightly lesser degree now.

    Sounds wonderful! The season is 2 months in but I’ve only seen 2 Chelsea games. Up til Christmas it doesn’t get much better either :rolleyes: if you like watching Burnley and Huddersfield you’re in luck though!

    I’d happily pay a premium price to have Chelsea TV with every game on live, plus the money coming in from overseas would be massive. I’m sure every fan would love that for their team, it’s just that they wouldn’t get the same revenue and you’d lose out on the likes of Bournemouth spending £25 Million + on players, which weakens the league I suppose.
