    Yes the lower leagues need cash to stop multiple clubs going under, but I've little doubt that this proposal is designed so in the long term the richest clubs benefit at the expense of everyone else.

    Liverpool might not care about the EFL cup but for a lot of teams it's one of the only realistic chances they have of winning a trophy.

    All changes made to the structure of The Premier League have been made in order to benefit a small cabal of clubs.

    This is another. They are proposing that the Premier League gives money out, that is all the club's in it, not just the cabal. Then, all the changes mentioned are in the cabal's favour, most notably the idea that one club one vote would be scrapped.

    A disgraceful power grab.

    There is no mention of Aston Villa and Newcastle United, both of whom have featured in more Premier League campaigns than Manchester City.the reshuffle of the Premier league is only for the benefit of the top clubs and newly promoted don't stand a chance to catch up.

    here is a proposal make them pay a minimum of 4 mill with add ons to snatch an excellent youngster from the EFL, that would equal the playing field better and now we are out of the EU make it cost them harder to employ the most expensive overseas player put a cap on how much they can pay.

    The fact that the "top six" have reportedly always wanted rid of the majority of 14 teams to pass a rule change so they can change the rules to suit themselves, can only hurt football in the long run and make sure that no one else can do what Man City has done and gate crash the party

    “It is understood Liverpool's owners, the Fenway Sports Group, came forward with the initial plan, which has been worked on by United co-chairman Joel Glazer. It is anticipated it will receive the backing of Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur - the other members of England's 'big six'.“

    this is gonna piss the gravy stained idiots off, how is one of the biggest clubs in Europe who’s rivals are Barcelona not in that group.

    "The idea is to address longstanding EFL concerns about the huge gap in funding between its divisions and the Premier League by handing over 25% of the annual income, although the current parachute payment system would be scrapped"

    I don't think that's a bad idea. Rather than teams yo-yo-ing between PL and Champ, the whole money goes to the whole of the EFL. 250m a season can help out a lot of the smaller clubs and with this wage cap now in place should secure the future of lower league football for years to come. In theory anyway...

    What's most worrying is the idea that they (the so called 'big 6') can stop any takeovers of other clubs. It's ****ing ridiculous that they could think that they'd have the power to be able to do that. This sort of bollocks needs nipping in the bud and binning without any sort of thoughts about it.

    The big 6 (ffs) also want the power to veto any Efl rule changes they don't like, so if say 55 efl clubs vote to pass a rule they then have to basically send it to the pl to say its OK with them, ludicrous.

    That the “big six” can have veto over a takeover is a ****ing joke. Basically saying no one as rich as them can take over as it would threaten their position.

    some of the points I do agree with but most of it is just self serving bollocks imo.

    It makes you think maybe the Mag fans were correct with their assumption of their "failed" takeover.

    No way were the Prem going to hand over £250 mil without grabbing a bit more power imo. And 25% of future tv deals is a fair chunk of cash to be distributed around. If this does go through I'd fully expect prem b teams to be in the football pyramid within a couple of years an all.

    The only way for the Premier League to help the EFL is for it to give some of its massive income to the league from which it was born, without any expectation of something in return. Without the Football League, there would be no Premier League. Both in historical terms and in an organisational sense.

    At the risk of sounding xenophobic, it is interesting that this plan appears to have been concocted by American owners who are familiar with the closed major league/minor league system operated over there. This lack of respect for the football pyramid undermines what makes English football great- the excitement of a promotion/relegation battle and the (theoretical) possibility that a club can rise from the lowest reaches of the pyramid to the highest echelons.
