WITH Manchester United confident in signing promising prospect Luke Shaw from Saints, money no object, is it not time to do what many other sports do: introduce a handicap system to make the Premier League a level playing field for all teams?

I believe it should be reckoned on the size of your wage bill.

There should be a league average.

If you go over that you start games a goal down, up to the maximum of two goals down.

This would put a brake on the hyper-inflation that allows billionaires to buy success which is what we have now.

PADDY MAXWELL, Southampton.
