Presumably that’s offset by the fact that 25% of PL budget will go to EFL. The whole point of Big Picture is to reduce the disparity between PL & EFL revenues.
Suspect 25% of tv deal wouldn’t be anywhere near the parachute payments.

It’s linked to St holders, who surely should be given preference over non- ST holders. If season ticket holders want a refund they won’t go into ballot. How is that fair? They might need a refund as they’ve lost their job but might eventually be able to afford ballot tickets. It’s Tory boy behaviour.

You can think outside the box when you have a squad to work with. What Dyche is being asked to do is nothing short of a Harry Houdini escape trick.
