Holy shit! £10.2 million a game!!

Just seen on BT Sport the new deal between sky/BT and the Prem League - it's basically 5.2 BILLION they will pay the Prem for 2016/17 (this year was 3.5 Billion) for matches. BT get 42 games and will screen at 5.30 rather than 12.45 on Saturdays.
10.2 million quid a game, Jesus Christ, the world's gone barmy.

Ever get the feeling it's even more important financially not to drop to the Championship??!!

Properly mad numbers. If we do drop then what are the parachute payments?

It can't be right though can it - all this money thrown at the Prem - it's easy to think that the Prem is some kind of stratospheric otherworld where the football is sumptuous and resplendent with silky skills at every turn,
The reality is that it's just 20 teams of sweaty blokes that are slightly more talented than the group of sweaty blokes that play in the division below - the FA cup has shown that honest endeavour beats Bentley-toting tosspots on very many occasions.
In fact, forget all this bullshit about the romance of the Cup - the FA cup isn't romantic - it's the ice-bath of reality, it's the wake up call for the pink-shirted PR wankers of central London - it's where the guilty secret of working class ugliness takes on the uber - smooth marketing of 5.2 bilion-over-three-years/Coca Cola/Apple/Barclaycard ubiquitousness/Blatter-fascism and shoves it right where the sun don't shine.
I love seeing the new order upset - those public school wankers finding out what it really means to take one for the team - lets have more ill-placed microphones picking up East Midland-accented profanities on TV - lets have more South East effete wankers apologising for some "industrial language" on TV, lets reclaim our game and stand up at matches - lets keep it tribal, lets behave badly, upset foreigners, swear like troopers. pour forth from our estates. new towns, shopping precincts and tower blocks and gatecrash the arty-farty-party that the horrible G&T wanker Scudamore would wish the brand of the Prem means to each and every one of us. Fuck the players and their bespoilt richness, fuck The City and its actuarial virus, fuck celebrity status, fuck 15 minutes of fame, fuck Americans that own B6, fuck idiots that think "leverage", "churn", "pushing the envelope" and "Brand management" mean more than actually making or mending something.
Fuck them all.
Remember where we are from and what we believe in - surely it's not nylon shirts with vile gambling companies emblazoned on the front that sell for 50 quid, it's not flash TV rights or Barclaycard adverts - it's freezing your bollocks off in the Holte when you are losing 2-0, it's trying not to think how long it took you to save the money that paid for you and your kids to travel to watch the Villa when a programme, a pie and a pint takes more out of your wallet in 5 minutes than you put in it in 2 weeks, it's about being a Villa fan, good or bad, richer or poorer (mostly poorer!) and it's about trying not to think that the fucker you've travelled 200 miles to watch circumnavigate the 6 yard box several times for 200 grand a week is actually taking the piss.
Rant over.
