The Athletic reporter Tim Spiers has recently discussed Wolverhampton Wanderers’ stance on ‘Project Big Picture’.
Recently, ‘Project Big Picture’ – a plan which has been put together by Liverpool and Manchester United – is a proposed restructuring of English football and has been met with a hefty amount of criticism (per Chronicle Live).
Some of the key proposals that would affect the Old Gold would be the Premier League becoming an 18-team league and the EFL Cup and Community Shield being scrapped.
In the latest episode of The Molineux View podcast, Spiers talked about the proposals and discussed Wolves’ stance on it.
He said: “I mean, these are very initial proposals, with not a lot of meat on the bones really, considering it’s supposedly been worked on since 2017.
“I thought it all came across as a bit flimsy – back of a fag packet-type thing. I’m sure there’s more to it than that – not that we know much about it at the moment, and not that Premier League clubs know much about it.
“I mean, from what I can tell, the majority of them saw this when we did in The Telegraph; it’s not been discussed apart from at the very top – Liverpool, Man United, etc.
“So, Wolves, for their part, as a club looking to break into the top six, I’d imagine that they’re very much opposed to this and to any kind of restructuring of the league or the finances.”
TIF Thoughts on Tim Spiers’ claim on Wolves’ Project Big Picture stance…
Judging from what the journalist had to say, he seems to believe that the Old Gold will be opposed to ‘Project Big Picture’ as they are looking to break into the top six of the Premier League.
Would you back Project Big Picture?
No, it's a terrible idea
Yes, it's a great idea
Certainly, with Wolves having finished seventh in the previous two Premier League campaigns (per Transfermarkt), it seems likely they would want to avoid any possible hindrance to them pushing further up the league.
