Town Officially Premier League Club at AGM
Thursday, 6th Jun 2024 09:37

Town officially become a Premier League club today when the division’s annual general meeting takes place at a hotel near Harrogate in North Yorkshire.

At the AGM, the previous season’s relegated Premier League clubs transfer the shares which gave them top flight status to the sides promoted from the Championship.

Sheffield United, Burnley and Luton Town will be replaced by the Blues, champions Leicester City and play-off winners Southampton. The Premier League welcomes the new clubs by awarding them their framed share certificates.

Among the issues clubs are set to vote on at the meeting is the Wolverhampton Wanderers proposal that VAR should be scrapped. However, it’s expected that the move will fail, despite widespread support from fans. In a TWTD poll, 74 per cent of voters were in favour of the Wolves motion.

In addition, clubs are set to vote on anchoring, which means all sides would only be able to spend a maximum of the multiple of what the team finishing bottom earns in TV revenue, and proposals relating to Profitability and Sustainability Rules (PSR).

was rumoured to involve an initiation ceremony involving removal of any regard for fans and making MONEY your only GOD

I think the VAR debate will be more interesting than the outcome of the vote. I would be surprised if VAR was scrapped, but this may well be a point of leverage to make improvements. I dislike it hugely myself, it slows the whole process and excitement 3 or more minutes after the event is not the same. Perhaps a time limit on decisions, and if not made within that period the on field decision stands? Either way the TV pundits that called for VAR will question it to such a degree that any new measure will soon be deemed pointless I imagine.

Just in time to find Man City have ripped apart any last vestige of it being a competition. Tho I have to say, all the hoo-ha and concern shown by the papers etc. about the damage to the competition is pretty ironic. This should have happened 30 years ago, but because it didn't affect the media darlings who were pushing for the Premier League to do exactly that and carve out their own safety from relegation and dominance (Arsenal, Man Utd - and quintessentially Liverpool), then none of the journalists cared. Now that it looks like them being pushed out suddenly what already happened to most clubs decades ago is a major issue. In some ways I hope City win and ultimately they get what they deserve.

I wonder who will be representing us? I imagine that Mark Ashton will be there, anyone else?

Only 30 mins drive from Leeds.
So near, yet so far.
Such a shame.

Having been on quite a few Prem forums and feeds lately to get a general vibe, it feels like day 1 of walking into a young offenders institution. Some right special cases. Gonna be a long season & very different to the relatively friendlier Champ & L1 forums. Better get my big boy pants on.

Nottstractor. The problem with whatcu say about a 3 minute limit, is it wouldn't cure anything. Bcse if, after 3 mins the onfield decision stands , but turns out to be the wrong decision, everyone will still moan about it.

VanDusen added 13:48 - Jun 6
@JewellintheTown Are you surprised? That's cos EFL generally has real fans who watch the game. Now it's armchair fans who just parrot whatever the supposed 'expert' pundits who only care about the showbiz clubs say.

JewellintheTown - the Youtubers are also dire. Nowhere near the standard of League 1/Championship Youtubers. But depressingly the ones I've seen all have a zillion subscribers - so they aren't gonna change.

JewellintheTown added 14:45 - Jun 6
Not surprised in the least, VanDusen. Merely highlighting the step up difference in fans you and OliverR16 have since expanded on.

I'd take that as a final table! Statue on order!
