Richard Scudamore is getting a £5m parting gift as he retires from the F.A. which is being funded by the 20 clubs in the PL.

Just to illuminate the absolute mockery it makes of the working man, his annual salary is £2.5m, so he's getting 2 years worth of annual salary as a bonus.

Oh and he's also going to continue in an advisory role (I imagine not pro bono) to the F.A.

I am astonished that in this particular economic climate they can justify paying a guy that much money just for having done his job.

Buy him a bottle of scotch or something, f**k me.
+2
Yeah, it was a surprising move. People are saying that he is the man responsible for that TV deal. But he is getting paid to do that. I'm surprised that all clubs agreed to it.
+2
I get that he's made a commercial behemoth of the league but he gets paid to do it.

If my employer wanted to pay me two years salary when I left I guess I wouldn't say no but it just seems obscene.
+1
maybe he's done well beyond what he was projected to do. thats like if a team is supposed to target making the KO rounds, but they end up winning the whole tournament. There would be bonuses attached to exceeding expectations like that.
I'm sure there would be performance based bonuses in addition to the 2.5m salary. He surely has done well and may be exceeded expectations when other leagues are finding it difficult to increase popularity. La Liga and Serie A are planning on playing league games abroad. At least PL doesnt have to do that. As SIF mentioned, we might not have the complete picture of what he has done.
David Silva is the best player in the league.
+5
Hmmm "Strokes goatee and thinks about De Bruyne"

In time.

David has been doing it for many years, City Legend:]
+1
I didn't know his baby was in such poor health last season either. A big fan of players like him who keep their head down and work hard for success, especially in troubling times. Helps when you have such natural talent
+2
David is a PL legend. I've never seen such a consistent player, even when we suck, his still the best one of the field. The man has been playing football for so long but just doesn't have a bad day, ever. One heck of a signing we got, had he played for Barca or Madrid, he would have been talked about as much as Modric, Iniesta and Xavi. I will be in tears when he leaves.
+2
Can't believe the fortune Arsenal have had this season...
+3
I remember some fans saying how lucky we were last season too. I won't argue the point. We have snatched late points much like United have this season. But there is something to be said about not giving up til the final whistle. That's what I like about this teams current mentality. Even under Wenger's last year we had it. The main culprit is how shitty we play our 1st half every. single. game.
Arsenal were outplayed in their home turf by Watford and Wolves but they still managed 4 points. I have no idea how it happened.
+1
I see us also struggling against Bournemouth next week. Any team that likes to attack and go toe 2 toe with us creating an open game will see plenty of chances on the break with our defense.
+1
So who's in favour of this so called super league competion which may replace the champions league.


I think it's greedy by the 16 clubs (including Liverpool) I like the champions league and this feels like a cancer almost, will ruin the enjoyment completely for loads of fans around the globe
I don't like this particular iteration, but I think this is the next step for club football, like it or not: having the top clubs in an actual "league" rather than a cup tournament.

Not sure what this would mean for domestic leagues but you can be sure that the national federations would put up a fight. Will that be enough?
+1
I'm against it. I very much like the initiative in finishing in the league to qualify both CL and EL while having to balance out the club's league position. The beauty of the qualification process is that virtually any team can jump in e.g. Leicester winning the league. I'm not sure of the ins and outs of the super league, but it seems like a snooty high society idea that will pull the top teams higher above the more evenly spread out wealth that's come about esp. in the premier league.
I am totally against it. People feel that if we see top teams face each other very often, it will be good. But I think it will start becoming boring.
Your Manchester derby predictions?

Here's mine: 3:1 City win!!
+2
8-0 ;) City Win

On a much more realiestic note I'd say 4-1 City win.
+1
I fear our overconfidence might hurt us.
+1
2 - 0 City win
United 2-1 last minute.
I don't see us getting the result we got in Turin, not twice in two weeks.
Fooooty the oracle!
+1
Fooooty should start throwing some money at those predictions, great call lol.
+1
Sterling scores a legitimate Goal of the month candidate and all the journalists wanna talk about is the moral deficiency of the man for not owning up that he wasn’t touched. The hell is wrong with this country. I shouldn’t even have to spell out the reaction to that goal had Kane, Salah, or pogba thumped it in. The mans been in the limelight since 17. How many young English talents have we been built up in their teens only to be overcome by the sheer pressure of it all. He broken through and only gets better and this damn country repeatedly expresses their disappointment.

It’s not racism, it’s just monumental petulance and arrogance.
+1
Ya journalists suck, nothing new.
+3
To add to that - Sterling has actually come out and apologized. I have not seen any of the others do that. He had the balls to do that.

They did not have to apologize, so did Sterling not have to.
+1
You're partially correct, he scored 18 goals in the league last year and I barely even noticed any plaudits for that. He's on pace to do the same this year if not more. That's impressive for a winger.
+1
Because his easy to hate. Every since his move from Liverpool to City, his been the villain.
+1
He sucked in the world cup didn't he? And Kane? They only care what you do in an England shirt.
+2
Had Kane done that, the headlines would've been "what a clever Englishman" lol...
+1

Funniest damn analysts right here. Neville and Carragher talking in hi pitch voices is hilarious. Watch 645-750
Carragher is hilarious even being the normal himiself lol
+1
His high pitch talking is funny especially coming from a larger guy
To Mourinho, Gary Neville and all those that said "Pep teaches City to make tactical fouls to avoid counter attacks"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SM_20p_uZus
Mourinho and Gary Neville don't visit this website
+9
Tomi I think you underestimate the stature of Footytube
+4
Fwiw City opposition attacks end in fouls more than any others in the league. It's just a byproduct of the press, it was that way at Barcelona.

https://twitter.com/PinnacleBen/status/1058853766814973954

But to the point, let's say hypothetically Pep does teach this... is it against the rules? It's up to the ref to decide if they're intentional, yellows, etc.
+5
I think Pep wants his players to be more aggressive when retrieving the ball back and it results in more fouls I hardly doubt he teaches his players to deliberately foul opponents and I doubt he would lie about it in the press. If he did his players will lose respect for him and it will result in them underperforming.

Neville gets into these unnecessary arguments with many other coaches and former coaches like Redknapp for example
It is a simple thing. It is our style, which is possession based. The real danger we face is on counters - so most of the fouls are on counters. Nothing crazy about it. In fact, it would be dumb not to try and get the ball when we are countered against.

This is like saying don't defend, it is deliberate. Well sure, captain obvious!
I agree with Joey and Tomi. Nothing wrong with making those fouls. Those are tactical decisions. Players know the consequences and they make a logical choice.
+1
tactical fouls are a thing, whats the big deal here? as long as no one is out there trying to injure their opponent, this isnt even worth discussing.
Joey explained it very well...Its up to referee to decide what is wrong or right. Let them do what they want
I'd actually fault Pep even more if he is *not* instructing his players to make sure to commit to tackling hard on counters.... People who take Neville on these issues are just looking for something to get offended about (looking at you, Redknapp)
"Mo Salah VS the Big teams this Season:

Man City 0 Goals
Chelsea 0 Goals
Chelsea( league cup) 0 Goals
Tottenham 0 Goals
Arsenal 0 Goals
PSG 0 Goals
Napoli 0 Goals"

Is he another Michu (one season wonder from Swansea)?
Lol
+2
He'll score 4 against us now
+1
I mean he can still score, he has 5 goals this season where the topscorer has 7. Michu just couldn't score ha.
+1
Salah was never a target for opponents in first half of last season. This season he was their main target. It's not easy to score or create chances with 1-2 players around him all the time. I think Salah will adapt and find a way with time.
+1
We don't score like we used to currently anyway, will hopefully step it back up as the season intensifies.
salah has quality, and he's a young guy too, i thought he was closer to 30. he may struggle to get back to last season's form but he's not a one season wonder
+1
i remember when michu scored 46 goals in a season
+3
Salah is so overrated. Kind of like that chip over City’s GK last year in the CL
+1
........ AAAAND ..... guess who regained their 4th place? :D
+1
LOL...they looked good and pretty impressive how quickly they adapted to the new coach with a good style of play. If this continues then truly RIP ArsenalFanTv :(
Yeah i loved how they played. Liverpool possibly had some more chances but Arsenal definitely played with more heart and were entertaining. Fantastic what Unai has done with the team already.
Liverpool played well too hit the post on a couple occasions and were robbed a goal which is why VAR is a necessity in the EPL especially considering refereeing standards in EPL.
There was a wrong offside call in the Spurs-Wolves game as well.
