    ....Are to be revealed in the next hour. Apparently, they are going to be 40% HIGHER than the already massive £3 billion. I imagine SKY will still own the rights to the majority of matches in the end because without the PL, they will lose a lot of their customers.

    I can't wait, with this new deal maybe the next average terrible premiership player can earn my salary in 30 mins instead of an hour whilst I pay £20 a week to play along with £35 for a match ticket.

    We had to train with a sondico ball the other day I kid you not, all the others had popped.

    Expect BT to have rather a lot

    edit: or not. Large win for Sky. Still more than BT had before though. £5 billion total. Ridiculous

    Well that means the football league games move back to the 5:15 kick off I would guess.

    Depends if Sky would still hold the FL rights by 2016.

    This new TV deal will ensure that the quality of football played by all teams in the Premier League is also dramatically increased, and ensure the financial viability of every club in it.

    Of course.

    If we don't get there soon we never will. I dread to think what the parachute payments will be. £80m?

    The sooner a European super league is created the better. The money is getting truly ridiculous and is slowly destroying true competition between clubs.

    This season was a "golden" opportunity for promotion that has been thrown away and I'm amazed it was only supporters who could see this.


    I am assuming Derby, Middlesbrough and Bournemouth going up so forget these.

    Next season the 3 relegated teams will have a huge cash advantage. Norwich, Cardiff and Fulham will still have sizeable parachute payments coming and will improve.
    Then there are the likes of Notts Forest, Sheff Weds, Watford, Reading, Brentford, Ipswich, Blackburn and the fast improving Birmingham and Bolton.
    Probably one of the teams promoted from League1 will match the ambition Brentford have shown so there will likely be at least 14 or 15 teams with promotion aspirations ahead of us next season.

    I hope this is not the case but, if we rely on our youngsters and do not invest heavily next season, we may well end up in a relegation battle.

    No doubt a bang average player will be in 120k a week with the new deal

    Team that finishes bottom will get 100m

    I look at this from a different angle. The relegated teams already have a huge cash advantage, not that it seems to make much difference.

    The fact that the differential will become more huge is countered by the fact that the relegated teams will still have to ship out the majority of their players, all of whom will be on salaries that are based on Premier League income, not the parachute payments.

    I predict that this supposed "cash advantage" will actually be an increased burden, just like it has been every time this auction has taken place.

    I agree with Wall Heath Wanderer. The sooner a franchised European Super League is created, which will consume all this cash, the happier most supporters of non-elite clubs will be.

    Steve and Jez are both driven by money which makes it even harder to fathom just how they allowed our club to fall so far so fast without putting the brakes on when everyone knew this deal would be huge a couple of years ago. Now they (and unfortunately us) are on the outside looking in.

    If this was a game of Bullseye, Steve and Jez would have got to the final only to throw their darts on the floor - with Jim Bowen uttering the words 'Let's have a look at what you could have won...' as they wheeled out an oil tanker full of cash.

    Fools the pair of them.

    The cricket is the reason I keep my Sky sub going. I often watch the Sunday 4:00 pm match but that's about it for the football.

    Friday night games now, will any PL games kick off at 3pm on Saturday?

    Why is it every season that goes by I get less and less fussed about being in the Premier League?

    Someone ought to tell Steve that if we have to wait for the Academy players to develop we will probably take longer to get back into to the Greed League where the real money is whereas decent investment now might get us there earlier.:rolleyes:

    All Sky / Virgin / BT customers can eagerly await a letter in the near future to advise them of the inevitable price increase in subscriptions to pay for this massive outlay.
     
  27. Wolves have no choice but to buy into that bull$$$$. Then again some are very comfortably rewarded for doing so. You still get the failings but the rewards for failing will be much higher. Anybody fancy following the Manchester example and doing an AFC Wolverhampton?

    I heard some reporter on the radio say the money will help clubs improve grounds.
    I'm still laughing now.

    Just out of interest how many years of parachute payments have Wigan got left? The team that are currently in the bottom three of the Championship. There's having money & there's using it wisely. And yes I know they get three men & a whippet as their average gate

  31. Generally a club that improved players in the PL rather than us spending silly money on flops.

    Worth noting Radio/Overseas/Extended highlights/Digital packages still yet to be announced. Likely to eclipse £7bn in total I'd imagine.

    In fact the previous rights deals for overseas TV rights was £2.3bn, I think we can assume this will nudge the £3bn mark for the 3 years 2017-2019. Meaning a roughly £8bn total income for PL clubs, not £5.1bn. And that's without the remaining UK rights deals completed. It will go up even further. Mind boggling sums.

    I'm surprised anyone pays for Sky anymore. There are F5S receiver boxes with 12mth 'gifts' on eBay for £80. Not sure what the legal standpoint is on these deals but eBay never removes the listings.

    FSF have posted that just the increase alone equates to more than £40 for every fan at every game and just 3% of just the increase would pay for the £20 away ticket cap they want to see brought in.

    So the PL clubs could effectively allow every fan into every game for free and be no worse off than they are today.

    It's an odd thing but when the recession hit, I read an article about whether businesses should drop their prices to entice new business. Anyway, the article cited numerous social conditioning experiments and determined that reducing charges was a fools errand. On all levels, feed back, customer satisfaction etc, were all higher with the customers who paid the most. Even when the services given, were purposefully of a sub-standard. The point I'm trying to make is that people aspire. They aspire to work, to earn, to spend. If footy was free at the Mol, I could guarantee they wouldn't get full houses.

    It will strengthen the league though. You'll have mid-table PL sides capable of buying a lot of very good players from Europe and elsewhere.
