Premier League clubs make decision on ‘Project Big Picture’ in emergency meeting – The Times

According to a big story breaking from The Times this afternoon, Premier League clubs have REJECTED ‘Project Big Picture‘ during an emergency meeting today.

This comes after all 20 Premier League clubs met today to discuss the proposal – backed by the EFL chairman Rick Parry and put forward by Man Utd and Liverpool – that could have completely changed English football as we know it.

The system would’ve seen the ‘big six’ seize power along with Everton, West Ham and Southampton, with it also proposing that the Premier League is cut down to 18 teams and the League Cup scrapped.

That said, The Times say that “Premier League clubs kicked Project Big Picture into the long grass” during today’s meeting, which has seen the unpopular plan “effectively killed at birth”.

Instead, Martyn Ziegler reports that the Premier League will invite all 20 clubs to hold an urgent strategy review instead, with a new ‘bail-out offer’ also set for the EFL.

Has common sense finally prevailed! Let’s hope so, as Project Big Picture absolutely stunk, seeing the big boys of English football use the struggles of EFL sides to seize power once and for all.

One thought on “Premier League clubs make decision on ‘Project Big Picture’ in emergency meeting – The Times

  1. This should see the start of complete antagonism throughout football for Man U. and the Scousers.
    They are just so lucky that there aren’t crowds in at the moment to tell these clubs exactly what they think of them, but wasn’t that planned all the time anyway? Devious to the end.
    I hope fans of ALL clubs have long memories when they eventually do return to grounds
