Won't all games have been played by then?

Yes two sorry was looking at cup final.

Good on the smaller clubs for standing up to this. I agree Barca and the likes of Madrid are getting far too much money from TV.

They'd be better off doing a handicap system for Barca and Real, -3 home, -2 away, might liven it up a bit.
Report kenilworth May 6, 2015 9:30 PM BST
They should have a handicap system here,
not just Spain.

If this is serious and not just a huge bargaining tool, the real question is what impact will this have on the CL next year? Theoretically no completed La Liga, no Spanish sides in Europe.

If that happens then 2 extra places to England then?

Report pantsonfire May 7, 2015 2:03 AM BST
because English football is so deserving of the extra places?

At least the EPL gives the lesser teams half a chance. All the EPL teams are in the top 40 clubs in world football based on revenue.

A lot of the EPL teams are garbage based on their budgets but the worst EPL teams have much more financial muscle than the worst La Liga teams.

Whatever happens Barcelona & Real Madrid will still dominate for years and years but at least try and close the gap for the sake of the league.

I think it's inevitable we'll see a European Super League at some point as in most leagues the changing of the guard rarely takes place.

Forgive me. I am from the old school where performance was more important than revenue and football was a sport not a business.

What planet do you guys live on ? wanna bet that there are Spanish teams in the CL next season?

Well the holders are automatically entered, so barca or madrid could be in anyway.
Report G1_Jockey_4 May 7, 2015 10:20 AM BST
good move by the spanish fa.

they know real and barca are too big to try to take on.
the government are trying to but then their own money grabbing gets pointed out and they dont like it.

if they want lower clubs to get more money then give back a higher percentage of the pools money and lower their own take....simples.
then im sure the spanish fa will be able to tell real and barca that they arent the only ones taking the hit...


thats my take on it...

As a matter of interest anyone know how much of the pie (as a rough percentage) the big two get?
Report BARNEY15C May 7, 2015 1:38 PM BST
Also due to the unique way they are run aren't these two clubs indirectly state sponsored therefore get unfair preferential treatment?
Report n88uk May 7, 2015 3:25 PM BST
About 33% Barney.
