Who needs them on every corner? As I said, you only need 6-8 of them.
And how do you achieve that, please? Especially because you would have to achieve this across football around the world, not just in one league? It is impossible. American sport achieves it only because they have franchises and there are no competing leagues globally for American football, baseball, ice hockey and basketball - actually, even now the salary cap in basketball is being challenged because it is clear that teams in Europe are willing to throw big numbers at LeBron James, Bryant, etc to attract them away from the NBA.
That's the point, though. He with the most money won't win. Because there will come a point where money is no longer the differentiating factor amongst the top 6-8 clubs. It'll be about quality of support, training methods, development of young kids, tactics, etc. And that would be a great thing. Who cares if the top 8 clubs all buy 16-year olds for £20m, the challenge then becomes to see who (a) scouted the kids best, and (b) can develop them into top class footballers. If we get to that point then we will have come full circle back to football before money got out of control.
Oh, and the FA have no control of this. Only FIFA can impose a salary cap or something like that (because it would need to govern all leagues), and FIFA are completely in the pockets of the big clubs. Oh, and you'd also then just get a rival association formed which would buy the best players and pay them unlimited money, and you'd be rigth back to here again.
All very good points, to be honest I was taking a stab in the dark at possible solutions.
My point is I don't like the idea of a football league in which the very top clubs are dictated solely by the wealth of their owners and nothing else.
Currently a club with decent support, the Newcastles of this world, do have a chance of breaking into the top 4. The champions league money makes it very, very hard, but it is possible, if the right club with the right manager comes along we could be pushed out.
However in the scenrio where there are a few mega rich clubs, everyone else will stand little chance because the gap in squad quality will become huge.
If this happens even if we do get a new stadium which seats 70,000+ thousand we could be in trouble if we arn't one of the lucky ones. Prices of players and wages will rise as the mega rich dominate the markets and pluck all the best players away from the less fortunate clubs, who will have a decision to make, do we charge our fans more and try and hold onto players? Or do we just give in and sell the players? The Stevie G's in 5 years could be demanding 200k+ a week, because thats what City are paying their top earners. So those without the money will ultimatly be forced into selling their best players.. Loyalty died along time ago in football.
I know this happens already in football but there is a limit to our spending, even the mancs have a limit. These clubs owned by the mega rich could be completely different and would be almost untouchable. We saw with Villa and Barry, at the moment smaller clubs with aspiration are currently able to say no and hold onto players, however I don't think City's new owners would have had much trouble buying Barry.
Your scenario where there are 6-8 rich owners seems unlikely. Will they have equal amounts of wealth and be willing to spend the same amounts? No. Some clubs will have more wealth than others and this will be governed solely by who their owner is.
If this did happen and we weren't one of the rich clubs Liverpool could end up being a mid table selling club who patiently await sugar daddy type investment and play in the champions league once in a blue moon before having all their brightest stars bought in the very next transfer window.
