Just a quick note to let you know that I've started contributing to the rather excellent Twohundredpercent. My first contribution is here.

"The Premier League is a brand which has a huge fan-base across Asia, and I believe it has the will and initiative to help develop and support the game there.
You cannot stop fans from wanting to watch the best games, and the Premier League is one of the best football products in the world, but the desire of broadcasters in Asia to screen Premier League matches rather than their local leagues is where the imbalance is happening.
They are willing to pay tens of millions to show Premier League games but not a few thousand to show domestic matches. "
"That might take years to change, and the Premier League can give us technical assistance and help improve the skills of our administrators, marketing and media staff."
