Does the NFL Point to Football’s Future?
at 16:04:53

The NFL is 32 teams. The AFL is 20 teams, lived there 3 years, (Carlton Blues fan). The football league is 72 teams, with the Premier League that chose to break away being 22. Thats an important point, its a different entity with satellite rights and a global brand. Its created the money revenue for itself. Any team in England can rise from nothing to be on the fringes of the top global league, such as AFC Wimbledon and Bournemouth. But they must do this from the old model of fan attendences, cup runs and player sales with mininal tv revenue. Yes its unfair but promotion/relegation is open to all sides through all leagues not closed off like NFL/AFL. And you are right the franchise model is new world nonsense. Ive followed the AFL, there are teams such as Hawthron and Geelong that has mastered the system to stay at the top, its not quite equal.

So, its simply a fractional payment towards young players acadamies across the leagues from top league revenue to encourage home grown players that might get favour. But much else ia unlikely due to the fact the Premier League runs its own shop after breakong away and teams have to get wise to not over stretching and teams like Leicester that abuse the finances should certainly be punished and forced to sell 1/2 players when found guilty.

Good article.

Bialkowski on Hurst: From the Beginning There Was No Communication
at 16:04:28

Unproven league 2 manager turns out to be under-qualified lemon with a penchant for ditching highly skilled veteran players. It was the Cowley brothers I said we needed it now we’re playing them because they didn’t want to come. Never mind the club needed to go back to basics after McCarthy and we are there. Just 2 good signings away from being decent.

Good work Paul call out what you see.

Bart has gone, we expect players to come.

Over to you Evans.

Reading 2-2 Ipswich Town - Match Report
at 17:44:53

Possible correction needed, a third goal might well have been enough..

"From there they had chances to make it 3-1 and a second Blues goal might well have been enough to end the hopes of a Royals side looking frustrated and low on confidence."
