Next step:

All teams should boycott matches against these teams. They no longer respect the prunciple of advancement through merit - what is the point of playing them?

Now there are no longer any fans present at games they need to think how best to sell space in all these massive stadiums. Maybe 5-10k maximum. Maybe private indoor glass dining or even like hotel. Rooms. £1000 per night per game. What I loved about football, the atmosphere well thatís gone. Look a like this will all be money driven and predominantly designed for tv. Well they can keep it. Iíll take up tiddlywinks.

What a joke, let them go. They can play in their Mickey Mouse league with no history and no jeopardy. So boring!
Dreamed up by American owners, f*** off. Maybe they can call it something stupid like the European super league even though only teams from two euro nations and Britain are taking part.
Take your stupid ideas with you, the 39th game for example. It wonít be long till Man U are playing Juve in the ESL game at home in Dubai or the USA in front of thousands of loyal tourists!
I hope UEFA and FIFA and the EPL ban them from all competition, they need to realise they are not bigger than the game. I suspect this is all a way of getting their way with UEFA and project only the big six matter or whatever itís called.
Call their bluff and wave goodbye.

Completely in agreement ... this is all getting very silly now and we have too many foreign owners who don't give a toss about their club's fans. What's next ... relocating to the moon for the Interstellar League?

When has money not talked. This has been coming for some time. People like Seb Blatter who were raping the game are the cause. The beuros think they control the game. Letís see.

Beginning to look like a US franchise model.

Player power will it decide?

It occurs to me that fate of this ESL will probably be settled in the courts and it could be that the players have a huge say either way.

I suspect that most players contracts mention the domestic competitions e.g. we will pay you xx per Pl game. So:

Players at the big 6 could use this to negotiate new and bigger contracts. Those clubs desperate to keep their star players and hoping to attract the best of the rest will pony up.

Or a player who wants to play international football and appear in the domestic competitions could claim that the club has broken their contract by their actions. They could in theory walk on a free.

Not surprising considering the number of US owners in the PL. I bet if Palace were offered a seat our American owners would be singing its praises.

FIFA already touting player bans for World Cup if any teams take part. Simply North Korea / Russia level posturing to get even more favourable terms out of existing bodies and therefore competitions.

Because, as we all know, those clubs really could do with the additional money, power and influence.

At some point those who have the ownership dollar (and this includes fifa, uefa etc.) need to understand that exponential growth is not possible unless you destroy the entire reason football has become successful in the first place.

Things have to evolve, sure. But throwing the baby out with the bath water and filling the bath with cash monai is not the way to go about it.

Good post. The problem is the owners do not give a jot about football as we know it, all about money. Interesting that several of the clubs are owned by Americans.
Personally would be pleased to see the back of these clubs, sincerely hope the powers that be concede nothing

Definitely, Joel Glazer vice chairman of the league. I actually feel for manure fans, having their history trampled on. If the Glaziers thought the backlash was bad when they bought the club!
Hats of to the french and German leagues for now. It shows the German model of majority fan ownership works.

Ďthe clubs committed to the Super League do not intend to compete in UEFA competitions such as the Champions League if the plan comes to fruition.í

Not just player power, managers as well. This is Posturing, pure and simple. No manager or player worth their salt will be happy to say goodbye to the UCL for this. If theyíd said it would work alongside then I might have thought it would have more of a chance.

They want to get back to the negotiating table with UEFA and carve out new terms that favour them more heavily. I canít see any scenario that will mean this breakaway happens.

 


oh contrare, said the rabid giraffe whilst brandishing his throbbing member of reason, and twas ever thus.

Did you know? 98% of people are morons.
