I'd rather the premier league didn't exist and football went back to the good old days. Seems to be a lot of idiots about who think football doesn't exist outside the PL.

Probably a phoenix club, and I enjoy the EFL  on Quest, not the PL.

Interesting looking in as a geographical outsider that in 26 votes no one has gone for Supermarine.

Putting my asshole hat on, he's right.
So, the government should bail out clubs with taxpayerís money like they have with their £1.5bn support for the Ďartsí?

Or just let clubs die.

Hopefully, Dyche will get the boot and have no EFL clubs left to give him a job.

Phoenix club, or nothing.

Although I have been toying with the idea of following a Thai team regardless of what happens with Swindon, not that I'm ever likely to get around to it.

Doesn't have to be an either or. There's enough money in football that the industry can sort itself out without taxpayer money. If the Premier League won't play ball with that, there's plenty of ways govt can put pressure on them. Threaten their precious TV revenue (all games free to air), or maybe beef up the HMRC units that look into football clubs' tax avoidance schemes. Better yet, get HMRC to start looking at some of the owners' tax avoidance schemes. I'm sure they'd find they've got a few quid down the back of the sofa then.

I would look to form a group to buy one of the non league teams down here and get them in the premier league. Having played Football Manager for many years I think I can do it.

Might be naive here, but surely club owners knew what was likely to happen and have acted accordingly. It does seem, though, that itís pretty much business as usual.

There has been an emphasis on recruiting younger players which I presume cost less but if clubs are still maxing out the salary cap I canít see what difference that will make.

We all hope any Bogle money is being kept in reserve.
The problem with this is what does acted accordingly entail?

I'm sure we can rely on football club owners to have acted prudently and not over-committed or gambled the futures of the clubs they run in any way.

Swindon Spartans. 1879 all over again. Pints while leaning against the boundary fence. I'm looking forward to it already.

Like the idea,  not SS FC is a good look though.

Phoenix club for sure, and whilst I would never wish for it, I bet it would be more fun than a large part of our recent history.
