It highlights the wide income gap in football when you read that a guy called Cuvallier, who has just signed for Morecambe, has been delivering pizza since Walsall gave him a free last summer. A bit different in the Premier League and it’s ridiculous wages.

Good on him. Riding his bike has kept him fit and he obviously hasn't been eating a lot of pizza. ;)

Ha Ha! True BBTC. I imagine we get some TV money but not remotely as much as the PL obviously. This clearly fuels the nonsense.

If the match had been away, I think it might have been live, but the TV people won't touch it as they will reckon it's as near a home banker as you could get. Hope they are right.

We had no chance of being on TV with it at home, there would've been a chance if we were away

I’d settle for relatively easy games without tv money if we make the third round and the chance of a televised tie. Probably still get Peterborough though...

It is what it is. One thing is for sure, though, anybody who moves away from supporting their local team makes the situation worse.
