I’m struggling to see what their endgame here
According to the data available on transfermarket, in 98% of all EPL games this season the full stadium capacity was used. So yeah faking that on TV is not what makes the difference here.Black part is all about marketing.
Add filters to make the grass look greener (literally what they do), have English commentators that love what they're watching or at least pretend well enough, have stadiums that look full even if they're not, instead of lowering the crowd volume so that we can hear the speakers, embrace it (ie the French do this well). The PL is doing the opposite, they're adding artificial noise to make stadiums sound better.
And hype your shit. Get people involved with Fantasy football stuff, do deals with popular brands and video games etc.
It's all about marketing. And if the English can fool the Scots that they're part of the same nation, they can fool anyone that their league is the best thing you'll watch on television. They've been doing that since 2001 and half of it was still Serie B level.
I was talking about what Italy needs to do.According to the data available on transfermarket, in 98% of all EPL games this season the full stadium capacity was used. So yeah faking that on TV is not what makes the difference here.
Oh fuck me and us and everyone.
RIP pirate. Forza Inter!!
Lol. RIP to that man.
On a more serious note, though, doesn't Zhang have to say this? For two reasons at least. One being that, right now, the club has a CL Final to be prepared for. Off-the-field noise of any sort just needs to not be there. Secondly, it doesn't help leverage in any sale if they're outright saying "yeah, the clock is running out on us defaulting and we're not getting any kind of leeway on our loan". Oaktree doesn't want us, I get it, the only good thing about a default to Oaktree would be is that we'd be out of Suning and China's hands and we would be getting sold not terribly soon thereafter...obviously any period of time under Oaktree ownership probably wouldn't be great for its own reasons but it's also not like we're thriving as it is right now either.
Hopefully we're hearing some different noise in the coming weeks once we're officially in the off-season.
Stevie latest interview doesn't sound like a guy willing to let go of Inter that easily.Or this is already done and they are just trying to keep a lid on it before the final.
The endgame is to be here until the wheels fall off. When he doesn't want to sell right now when he literally has to go to other people and ask for money to run the club than you can only expect the wheel fallin scenario, it's the only logical conclusion.I’m struggling to see what their endgame here
