PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Leyton Orient chairman Nigel Travis has warned that football clubs could go out of existence ‘within five to six weeks’ unless a change like Project Big Picture is actioned. The proposal, partly lead by EFL chairman Rick Parry, contains radical plans for the shake-up of English football that has polarised opinion among governing bodies, clubs, fans and beyond. Manchester United and Liverpool are among the driving forces behind Project Big Picture, which would see the Premier League cut to 18 teams and greater power given to the so-called big six, while EFL clubs would benefit financially by receiving 25 per cent of all TV revenue deals. The EFL Cup (Carabao Cup) would also be scrapped under the proposed plans. Parry is facing immense pressure to secure a bail-out deal for the EFL, with the Daily Mail reporting that the former Liverpool chief executive faces the sack with up to seven clubs at risk of going out of business in the coming weeks.

The pandemic has, if you like, exacerbated the problem and we need to get it fixed. "I know you are talking about 'Project Big Picture' - this is a great proposal as far as we are concerned. It is certainly very promising and clubs need it. "Something like this has to go through."
