  • What They're Saying: Malcolm Clarke

    "Players and managers come and go, but we are always there. The reason that they can get lucrative TV deals is because the product shows the crowd, the noise, the away fans and the atmosphere -- it is all part of it. On one level, they don't need the fans because they have got so much money from broadcasters, but at another level, they do need fans to keep an attractive product. How boring would it be to watch a Premier League game in an empty stadium?"

    --  Football Supporters' Federation chairman Malcolm Clarke in response to a report that television revenue is now so high in the English Premier League that 10 of 20 clubs could have made profits in 2016-17 without selling a single ticket. (BBC Sport)
