'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Relegation From The Premier League Must Remain

Video: Today's general football topic being discussed on various media outlets is that some foreign owners of Premier League clubs would like to stop any kind of relegation.

ESPN sports commentators Robbie Earle, Steve Nicol and Shaka Hislop discuss the suggestion.

After watching the clip we at Vital Manchester City would love to hear your views.



My thought is this. The person who suggested the idea is a complete jackass - simples!

14 out of 20 clubs are needed, they'll not get that. Just idiotic some of the stuff around at the moment! Football has SO changed!

Who suggested it? I think fans of English football deserve to know exactly who they're directing their ire at for this ridiculous suggestion.

promotion and relegation HAS TO REMAIN, it is the lifeblood of the English game, just imagine IF this was brought in in 1995/6 season we would not be where we are now, this has been tried in other sports, look at Rugby League, unless you are playing for the top 4-6 places the season is a dead duck, Cricket even brought 2 divisions in as it was stagnant in it previous form.... this is an American idea as they are used to this Franchise form, and good luck to them for it, BUT in England we like the league as it is, so do not mess with it....

IT'S THE EXACT OPPOSITE. RELEGATION SHOULD BE INTRODUCED IN AMERICAN SPORTS. there is incentive for losing in American sports! (1st draft pick = first choice of amateur players). That's ridiculous relegation makes the sport so much better. I always tell my friends imagine if the Kansas City royals (an MLB team) were sent down and replaced by some AAA team (lower tier than mlb). Tbh i bet Sunderland's owner is the main proponent of this as he is American and his team is under threat
