Re: The future of Premier League on TV.

Cancelled my free 30 days trial of Amazon Prime this morning but not do they not want you to leave! Give times I was asked if I was sure then they offered me another 30 day free trial! Needless to say I turned it down as I was only ever interested in the live Premier League games.

The future is getting out of your armchair and going to see your local team. Better value and entertainment than the sterile manufactured Premiership fodder, with foreign owners, foreign players and supporters who have little connection to the cities they support. ( well it's my 'present' and 'future' anyway )

Lol I've got the free Prime for a month for Xmas (as usual), haven't touched any of the Premiership football. The couple of things I have watched are on the BBC soon anyway !

You say that but its not that cheap seeing some of these non league clubs as remember the conference has more professional clubs in it now thus the wages are higher.
