Fear-Filled Football

Not only is the January transfer window “daft”, it is a “nightmare” as well.

With the cost of relegation from the Premier League as great as it is,  managers of struggling clubs are under constant scrutiny, as chairmen and board of directors of these clubs look at who they want at the helm before spending any money to get the club out of trouble.

Clubs that try to spend their way to safety risk being weighed down by the financial burden should they be relegated in any event.

Further, the pressure-cooker environment of the Premier League is a catalyst for criticism of match officials, who already have a difficult job.

Increasing the number of levels in an expanded European pyramid would reduce the financial burden of relegation.
