So there is no relegation but how will this affect the squads, will we see more homegrown talent?

The bottom teams not forced to give big money contracts to get big names to stay up but rather look within?

Bottom 4/6 teams some pointless games where they use kids because being 8th or 10th doesnt make any different so prem is just used for development?

Good and bad things but im worried about that last point.

Not sure what i think of it but in the current situation i do get it. Just curious peoples thoughs on how it will change the teams and which ones will bennefit most.

Lack of relegation has come too late to affect squad makeup for this year.
What it does mean, is that the season has become pointless, and I'm entirey disinterested.

I mean what do we expect the change to squads to be over the next couple of seasons if it sticks? And yep a few terrible games could be coming.

I team is going to have expensive players left not playing just to get the kids experience.

Scrapping relegation was a terrible idea and will only make games more boring.

It'll become a two tier league
Teams who have a legit shot at European honours will still stack their sides,
Teams who don't won't spend as much as there's no threat of relegation
