@WR @Wally ... how viable is professional football in Holland?
Granted those old farts on VI TV like to moan a lot (like all old people) ... yet it does look like plenty of Eredivisie clubs had or are currently having problems ... with the help of public funds and a top-heavy distribution of TV money, that's roughly the same as Italy ffs, it's odd that even the top clubs struggle.
It's probably true that the Eredivisie's licensing regulations are less strict than those of the Pro League, that Dutch clubs have digged deeper into the pockets of taxpayers than Belgian ones, that the distribution of TV money in Holland is less equitable than in Belgium, etc. ... probably it's also true that fun-sized countries will end up with a pint-sized league ... we'll find out if William Gaillard, the senior advisor of Platini, was right or not soon enough ... I'm guessing that the Eredivisie will need to go through a couple of reforms in the next 10 years as well.
