Guess, when I bother to watch, I'm going to root for Brighton. Forza Seagulls!

I do like how they release the fixture list super early and I wish Serie A did the same. Makes it much easier to plan travel if planning on catching a specific match

Probably nothing will happen, because I'm a pessimist.

Unfortunately this has become the norm in the last 15-20 years.

There is close to zero regulation in football.

It has to start from somewhere:
- Max amount of agents' fee. And limit their interaction with 3rd party clubs for their represented client.
- Max salary to players - no sponsorship/spin off ventures to hide it
- Max amount of players under contract that aren't related to youth production, let's say 25. Similar to the American concept of the "clubhouse".
- Max amount of transfers for youth system (any age from 13 to 17)
- Higher minimum amount of domestic players. Should be closer to half than just a fraction of the roster. [4+4] out of 25 has to become [6+6]/25 or [4+8]/25
- Max amount of transfers for a club. Let's say 5 changes max in relation to previous season's registered team, unless the contracts are expiring and/or the replacements are youth products, directly or indirectly (ie transfer a former youth product back.


Just an idea of what could be useful to slowly start fixing football.


You have no idea of how bad things are at every other league out there... And the problem stems from the PL and a few other big boys that manipulate the market.

He speaks about drug abuse in football, among other things, but you'll be surprised what else this guy went through, sad story really.

Probably watch the friendly between Arsenal and ManU today. See if Balogun and Onana play.

onana is not in the team and Balogun is on the bench
Thanks, guess I'll kinda watch waiting on Balogun to play, since I've never seen him.

Competitive match, but no Balogun with significant minutes...or none.
