Carolyn Radford, is a CEO of a professional football club. She's stuck her head above the parapet to blow the whistle on the default Premier League.

Go Carolyn, go

I'm not gonna watch all of it as after three minutes it's nothing I haven't heard before many times over but she is of course spot on.

The fact she's a woman is irrelevant though, unless people are slating her for this based off that then there is no need to point it out.

29yo gold digging woman marries 50 odd owner of a league 2 club, who makes her ceo.

This gives her zero credibility. She knows nothing about the premier league, or the game.

Get an interview out of Katharina Liebherr and I'll listen and take notes.

She talks bs too; 'we need a competitive open pl for a successful national league, the top 4 isn't enough' - because spain/italy/germany needed that :lol:

Well she inherited the club when he died yes. Not her own fault. Didn't even like football and still steered it clear of very choppy waters because it was her dads legacy. Learned about the premier league, operated with integrity. Has as much money as Abramovich but instead runs the club sensibly (it makes and spends its own profit)

She's also put her own money into it.

She's earned a seat at the table imo, and probably has very good knowledge of the ins and outs of the PL. I'd find an interview with her fascinating.


Having said that, she's not 30, not attractive, not mouthy, and hasn't been arrested for threatening behaviour at a football game. So it's less interesting I suppose.

I'd actually never heard of her before this btw and the national team thing was the only thing I'd argue against (watched it all in the end).

However I don't care how she got her job, what she's saying in the first few minutes is stuff many fans have had concerns over for a while now and it will be interesting to see which supporters of which clubs agree/disgree with those comments.

She is saying Championship teams should be given a chance to compete in the PL and I'm saying the league is garbage that's why they can't. If I'm missing the point then correct me instead of being sarcastic.

I think the fact she's a woman does matter. There's hardly any females in the male dominated world of football. It wasn't meant to be disrespectful to Carolyn. I've nothing but total admiration for her. She's got the courage to have her say. I'm sure many will think.. sssshh.. keep quiet... Don't blow the whistle.

Appreciate your point though.

The first point she made was about predictability/the fact that the Championship is less of a closed shop (meaning anyone can win it) unlike the PL which is unless you're in that select group at the top and it's only getting worse because of the TV rights. It's a valid point.

Obviously the PL will be of a higher quality -- only a complete idiot would think otherwise.

She's not saying the Championships is great. She's suggesting, it's competitive. Everything the Premier League isn't.

The top teams in the Premier aren't world beaters. They just enjoy a year-after-year advantage of stock-piling a huge squad of overseas' players. This over the course of a long season, defaults them into their usual top four positions.

It's like the ole wrestling format. Fixed and we know the winners every year but it remains popular

yea, but there's nothing new there is there? She's just regurgitating old information.

The same as every other big sport in the world then?

Name one top league that is competitive for all in European or even South American football. There is none.

I can't help it :moon:

Look at the Championship table going into the final 2 games:

Now look at the Prem Title & Top 4 battle with 5/6 games remaining

Sky can't even flog a good top 4 battle this year. The top of the PL has nothing, the relegation scrap is the most interesting part behind the Championship promotion battle. God, I do love the Football League.
