A sobering post from Rory Smith: “There is no obvious route back to smooth sailing for the Premier League from here. The league’s reality now is that it contains at least one team — its best team — that wants to abolish not only the rules but also the mechanism for making the rules. The legal documents describe the way the Premier League is run as a ‘tyranny of the majority.’ (In this case, that appears to be a synonym for ‘democracy.') City’s aim appears to be to turn it into a much more traditional form of tyranny.” ⚽️
