    ... I would argue that parachute payments despite being sold as that have nothing to do with helping teams manage wages, because the Premier League doesn't care about that.

    What they care about is their "product" and the revenue that it makes. The product is billed as the most competitive league in the world, and partly that is the case because at times the weakest club in the Premier League can overturn the big boys, and they can do that because the weakest clubs (aka the newly promoted ones) have probably been in the PL recently, and have maintained a decent squad, so aren't necessarily completely rebuilding like Villa and Sheff Utd have done this summer.

    Essentially it creates a pool of 10 clubs or so who over a 3 year period are likely to be going down and then back up again, and those 10 clubs are all going to be better than a club going up to the PL for the first time ever or in a long time.
    So.... you’re saying, „Premier League 2“, then?

I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    No, quite the opposite.

    Premier League 1 is the only important thing, and ensuring the clubs entering the league anew are strong is paramount to having a fully competitive league.
