    He explained the mindset of the pass, that is good analysis.
    I could have analysed that in twenty seconds.

    It was ridiculous.

    that sounds simplified to me. maybe you are a pundit in your spare time.

    if you watched the "flick" it could easily have gone wrong in any number of ways. so yeah, it was interesting and if its not your thing then fine, but no need to be so churlish about it cause others find it interesting.

    It's a bit lower, but not really that much. The auction last time around just worked perfectly for PL with Sky and BT playing off each other. It was quite the jump, so going back a bit is normal. Of course there's still the other two packages to sell. 40 games which would mean an additional £370m or so if you use the averages from the deals made by Sky and BT now.

    I know what you are saying. But this is still the first time there hasn't been a big increase at a time when everything else in football is going up.

    Personaly, I enjoyed it. Glad you are not a pundit. Saying "Bobby gave a great assist" on a post analysis show is hardly insightful now is it

    Is that the same amount of games though as this past season? Or are the other two available packages extra games?

    That wasn't an analysis I posted. Give me a break.

    I'm simply pointing out that Henry spent way too long explaining Bobby's flick and is gettting called a genius pundit for it.

    Im sure we even turned down an option for a free when he joined Southampton i think on loan at first

    If say Amazon buy the other 2 then they enter the market for the next bid which will be massive.

    The same summer when we signed Thiago Ilori.

    Edwards and those other guys are very lucky to still have jobs.

    That's made up nonsense, if that was the case we wouldn't of signed Coutinho 7 months earlier.

    Yep. We had Coutinho, we didn't need Erikssen at the time. We had a million other problems to worry about.

    The payTV broadcasters Sky and BT Sport have retained their hold on live televised Premier League football, paying £4.464bn to the clubs for the rights to the five main packages of matches from 2019-22. Two minor packages of rights remain to be sold, a new experiment by the Premier League to allow the entire fixture list of 10 matches to be broadcast simultaneously, four times a season. BT Sport said in a statement that it remains interested in those further rights, with the internet platform Amazon also said to be interested in securing some Premier League matches.

    Sky committed to paying £3.579bn over the three years of the next deal, confirming that this is a significant reduction on the £4.1bn the broadcaster is paying for its prime packages in the current 2016-19 seasons. It will, though, have the rights to 128 matches, two more than under the current deal, and has bought every weekend “first pick” of matches and the most coveted kick-off times. Its packages will show matches at 5.30pm on Saturdays on 32 match days; Sundays at 2pm and 4.30pm and eight matches on Saturday nights at 7.45pm, the first time the Premier League has played matches at that time. Sky’s fourth package comprises Monday night and Friday night matches.


    “Sky has chosen to pay £1.193bn per annum under the terms of the new deal,” the company said in a statement, “down £199m per annum, a 16% cost reduction per game versus the current agreement.”

    Sky paid more last time to preserve its dominant payTV position in the UK against the serious competition of BT, which was bidding to establish its own subscription television service, to also support its commercial broadband ambitions. Having secured one package of 42 matches in the current deal, and the rights to all UK broadcasts of the Champions League, BT Sport said it had “remained financially disciplined” in the auction for the 2019-22 rights. The company has committed to paying £885m in total, £295m a year, for 10 fewer matches, 32 in total, all kicking off at 12:30pm on Saturdays. Of these, 20 will be “second pick” of the weekend’s most attractive matches for a broadcast audience and the remaining 12 will be “fifth pick”.

    Still predominantly a phone and broadband provider, BT Sport said it expected to make a profit on its £885m outlay: “BT Sport has remained financially disciplined during this process and remains in a strong position to make a return on this investment through subscription, wholesale, commercial and advertising revenues, especially following the acquisition of [mobile telephone network] EE, which more than doubled BT’s customer base,” the company said in its announcement.

    Did someone call him a genius? I didn't see that. I was just agreeing with the comments I saw saying great and insightful analysis. Which it was. You obviously didn't think so. Fair enough

    Im probably wrong here but didnt BT take over from Espn and still are linked with their us sports. Didnt Disney buy Espn and now they have bought Sky. So essentially there is no bidding war no.

    Its what James Pearce and Tony Barrett said at the time.

    Whether it was nonsense or not is another thing but they both reported that we did not think he was strong enough for the Premier League.

    Man U courted him for years even when he destroyed England and yet made no offer. So something was a miss wasnt there pal

    Yes Sky and BT said they wouldn't be bidding against each other, probably why its a lower price now.

    Yes BT show Baseball, NBA, College Football, to name a few US sports, NFL is still on Sky.

    The Disney/Fox deal hasnt gone through yet though has it? I think it’s going to take a while as US regulators have to approve it.

    I think I read somewhere that BT may end up relinquishing their ESPN UK license if the deal goes through. Although not sure on that.
