Details From Today’s Premier League Meeting Have Emerged



The Premier League has held their meeting to vote on some pressing issues ahead of the coming season. Of those, VAR, substitutions, and the return of fans were some of the higher priority items on the agenda.

The Mirror is reporting that clubs have voted 11-9 against keeping the substitutions at five and to revert back to three per match. They also voted 10-10 against having the matchday squads kept at 20. Since at least a 14 votes majority is needed, both measures have been squelched for next season.

So we’ll see a return to the three substitutions and 18 matchday squad limits. It is thought that many of the smaller clubs saw the extra substitutions as an advantage for the larger clubs due to their depth.

The other issues discussed were with VAR and fans attending matches, though the report does not have an update on either of those. Though it does mention that with FIFA taking the reins on VAR, referees could be the ones checking monitors to be consistent with other top leagues.

The clubs also discussed having an emergency plan in place should the season need to be suspended or canceled if another surge in coronavirus cases happens. This was only discussed and won’t be up for a vote until the next meeting.

Help for lower-tier EFL clubs as well as dates for the Carabao Cup was also discussed during today’s meeting.

    Tsunki – you know as well as I do that many of those signatures on Change.org are fake. And also many people will just sign it without properly reading it. I’m not saying that the petition can’t have a positive effect, just having it with so many signatures puts the topic in the news, I’m just saying that I can’t sign it in its current form.

    If you weren’t referring to me then seeing as you’ve taken issue with my previous posts on the takeover you STFU if I make any more posts that don’t support your views.

    Reading those comments from Merson generally is what annoys me about pundits if its Arsenal or Chelsea he’s giving it the owners need to be putting 200 million to get challenging for the league blah blah

    But then its always “Ashley shouldn’t be putting anymore money in” what about the clubs money!?

    Also 400 million to climb 2 places what planet is he on hell if we had have bought Rondon and improved Perez contract we would have finished top 10 even with Bruce in charge

    I took a look at Amnesty international’s website one click on their “weapons” box and a scroll down leads to some bumf about about them helping to stop arms sales by the UK to KSA in 2019.
    Now surely they should be very upset that these arms sales have started again. Surely they should be writing letters which get publicity in the national press. Apparently not. Likewise Disney, cruise lines etc, apparently not. But the sale of a football club to a Saudi investment company, well that’s another story.

    Most football pundits are just plain thick and Merson falls into that bracket. Using his logic Wolves or Leicester would not have spent what they have ( actually reasonably modest sums) to get into the top 6/7 and compete in cups. We have every right to expect our club to want to be there.

    And the signing of the petition.
    TDS makes some valid points but essentially all we are signing up to is the fact we are not happy with the PL process. Let’s not get too hung up on words. It was put out there next day. There wasn’t time to spend a week agreeing the words. We have made our point and now it’s up to NUST, Council and MPs to fight our battle for answers.

    Tsunki – I agree about other petitions which is why I rarely sign them. I only sign them if I totally agree with them. I’m not criticising others for signing it, I think it shows passion, but I just wish it had been worded in a proper and honest way.

    I am sick of pundits getting away with saying stuff that is incorrect and misleading. The anchor guy should challenge what they say. They are all just lazy. Who is fighting our corner?
    CEO of BSkyB or whatever it’s called now is a Geordie and Toon fan. I wish he’d sack a few!

    Just because you do not get caught stealing (illicit streams) does not make you innocent. Stealing is stealing.

    I remember when I was about 6 years old, in post office, dad getting family allowance or something. Got the money, turned away and then went back to to window. “you have made a mistake” he said and the teller pointed to a sign saying mistakes cannot be rectified.

    Fine said my dad, you gave me £10 too much….goodbye

    onmeedsun – I know it’s just my opinion about the petition. And I am pretty sure I’m in the minority on that one. It wouldn’t have taken long to get it worded properly either, just run it by a couple of people, ideally someone who is a NUFC fan but understands a bit about business and legality.

    We’re talking about a business decision here, we’re not talking about a petition to change the style of football at the club, put in a more attack-minded manager or do everything possible to keep Matty at the club for example. I know those are partially business decisions too but they are mostly football. The takeover is the other way around.

    one of very own so called fans casting doubt like that on the validity of the signatures on the petition,
    right here on a public forum, looks to be like someone is trying to discredit the petition integrity and bring it into disrepute.

    you have to wonder why one of our own would want to do that ???

    onmeedsun – don’t have to be a business guru to write it well. I’m a fan, I’m in sales and I deal with business stuff legal contracts fairly often. There must be others like me on this forum and any one of us could have written or edited it.

    Peter.
    When I was 7 or so I was hooked on making Airfix models. Must have been the glue smell!
    Anyway, I never had enough pocket money to buy enough models. I’d seen my Dad putting coins in a black box in his bedroom, so I decided to take a look. It was full of 50p coins. So armed with my stash I went to buy a load of models. The following week my mother questioned me as to where I’d got the money to buy my models. The little black box silly!
    My Dad marched me down to the shop to confess my sins to the owner.
    I did get a pocket money rise soon after!

    IMO the purpose of the petition is to garner publicity for the issue, by getting publicity elsewhere to bring it to the attention of others. It doesn’t matter if it’s full of ‘fakes’ or multiple entries. Like Tsunki says, they all are. Change dot org don’t care, it’s more email addresses for them to sell and if the petition is called out for being ‘corrupt’, then that’s just more publicity.
    We all know the petition will not make the government do anything, but that’s not the point.
    I don’t know how many people went on the ‘let’s not Br-exit’ march, but let’s say that number represents approx 50% of the population. Again I don’t know how many went on the ‘let’s respect the human rights of Iraqi’s and not bomb the fk out of them’ march. But in my mind it was more and therefore represented the majority of the population, whose views the government are meant to represent.
    So yes the petition is not going to change anything, but you can bet the PL is praying for it to be small and to fade away as quickly as possible. Is that not reason enough to sign it.

    But this petition is informal. It’s a gov.uk one that actually matters if it gets to 100k isn’t it?

    Also, does anyone know if the government can actually do anything? My understanding is that national governments can’t interfere with the ruling body for football in the country.

    TDS.
    I’m a finance director and could have written a better one, but how on earth do you control a process like that unless we all agree that everything must come from the Trust. Some kid used his initiative and put something out there for us to back. Forget the words. We know by backing it the world knows we are not happy with the PL process. End of.

    onmeedsun – I get your point, I truly do. It’s just me. I rail against stuff like this because I don’t think it’s going about things the right way. It’s a business decision so it should be approached in that manner. I want to WIN! So to win, you have to understand the opposition and attack them in the best way. I just think the best way would have been to word something that lots more people could have signed (me, Shearer, Ant & Dec etc.) Take out the assumptions, untruths and libel and why wouldn’t a NUFC sign it?!
