Chris Sutton has hit the nail on the head when speaking about ‘Project Big Picture’ – and what it will mean for any potential Newcastle United takeover.
Speaking on the BBC 5 Live’s ‘Monday Night Club’ podcast, Sutton claims that the Premier League are at risk of creating a ‘cartel’ and ruining all potential future competition – which he argues is the Premier League’s best feature.
In his opinion, the cartel will be created in the future – due to the new power the top six will have to veto any takeover.
Speaking directly about Newcastle, he stated that the top six simply wouldn’t allow the takeover to happen, as our prospective owners have the financial means to actually challenge them:
This would cause any other team to fade away into ‘insignificance’ as the top six build themselves up.
I have to say, I find Sutton to be quite a divisive pundit – and I don’t always agree with what he has to say, but he’s bang on here!
Project Big Picture will simply drain the league of any competitiveness, and we’ve got no chance of becoming a great team once again if it goes through!
