I wouldn't worry about it. Liverpool fans have not done themselves any favours over the past few days. Treating smaller clubs with the contempt some have shown is frankly disgraceful.
Its also shown that not only have our board been stuck in the dark ages when it comes to getting this club back to the top.
The game of football have moved on from the ideals of yesteryear. Thats not because of us, christ we've tried to stay in the dark ages for long enough and is why we are where we are today. The game moved on because of the governing bodies such as UEFA, FIFA and the PL itself.
We either accept that and move with it, or we accept we are going to become an also ran with the likes of Villa and settle for that.
I for one am happy to move with the times, yes its a different game than it used to be, and yes its probably worse for it, but the other option is not what Liverpool is about. We are about winning.
And don't mistake the above for wanting to make the PL less competitive, or to screw the little man - the league can benefit, the clubs can benefit and most important of all we can take charge of one of our unique selling points and capitalise on it.
