Premier League Should Rule - Freddy Shepherd

By: Bill Osborne
Date: 29/11/2004

IN a hard hitting statement yesterday, Freddy Shepherd, chairman of Newcastle United said the Premier League should be running the whole show in regards to English football and that "We should not worry about the fate of clubs in the Football League."

Mr Shepherd, was a speaker at the Soccerex international football business forum in Dubai and he said "Executives of Premiership clubs striving for success did not have time to worry about lower division outfits."

"I think it is dog-eat-dog. The big fight will be for the Premier League to take over the running of the other leagues. The others can't hold us back, the time will come, I think, when it is the Premier League running the whole show."

"Many of these other clubs will have to go part-time. When we have got 52,000 fans at each home game, the last thing we are worried about is clubs in the third division."

On the claim that Premiership clubs needed 72 clubs thriving under them in a solid Football League pyramid, Mr Shepherd said: "There is no sympathy here." END
