Players hold all the cards.

They either all get together and say nah fuck this, none of us are playing in your shit exhibition league - at which point the idea ends (as long as all the good ones agree and take the same stand).

Or they realise just how much power they hold and all of a sudden go from earning £150k a week to £1m a week.

I wonder which way that will go 😳

I’m with the opinion of quite a few on here as in let them go and play in this so called super league. Think it will soon get boring with the same teams ending at the top again , kick them out they can’t have it both ways ! If we end up with a financially weakened comp so what it will be the same for everybody . The only worry I have is will rich backers get involved with clubs if there is no massive financial gain for them to be had ?

As if

they’re all greedy 

For gods sake, look at Pogba

£13,000,000 pa

for what!!!

you seriously don’t expect Kane to upset his applecart

no integrity, no commitment, no honesty

if the big six go, then we should apply new criteria

1 -2 foreigner players

at least 10 players living within 25 mile radius of club ground

Player Payment ratio to club turnover

Percentage of turnover invested in youth teams/ grass root

minimum 12 month contracts


no stupid payouts for failed managers 

free access to school development projects , training and live games

Govt say they wont let it happen

If they are serious, i reckon its quite easy to do

Just dont grant safety certs or provide police

Surely thats the simplest way to stop it....if they want to, which i doubt

6 healthy donations to the Tory party will see to that idea.

Yup that and the revolving door between investment banks and the senior echelons of the civil service.

Sky sports news saying 14% of Fans in their survey want this ESL to go ahead, they must have surveyed the owners because that figure is bullshit.

If they only surveyed fans of the clubs concerned, it might be realistic. 

Seems high if it is fans in general. 

Of course,.depending upon how the question was phrased, some may have said, yes fuck em off. Not endorsing it, but happy for the clubs to be gone.

Depends to a large degree on how 'fan' is defined. If your 30 year Liverpool season ticket holder from Speke carries the same weight as your Facebook 'liker' from Seoul then it's plausible. 

I've had a season ticket at Wanderers since the early nineties, I started following the results of Baltimore Orioles Baseball as it was one of the first sports back from lockdown and I enjoyed The Wire. It really ain't the same thing.

You could be correct, it was a YouGov poll from just over 1700 fans, be interesting to know how these polls are conducted. Because again, 14% my arse.

I'm.not sure people.are bored of play off franchise models.in other countries.

dunno if franchising is what europeans (as sport fans) want. 

my guess is its similar to rupert murdochs australian "super league war" from a bit back. 

forget what happened fully , but both leagues ran parallel for at least one season and added padded out teams to make up the numbers (espesh rupe's league)... in the end, murdoch won , but i dont reckon mid tier nfl owners have the stomach for a stalking horse soccer league. 

iimagine if the giants or the cowboys wanted more money over shitty no fans teams like the rams* or buccs* ??

theyd go apeshit if the same money carving out crap was tried on their teams. 

"no !!! jerry jones !!  think about the CBA !! its not fair !! "

If they meant it theyd move them to the MLS and that wouldve been mooted from the start. if foreign money is that great , they need to back it up. 

 

* yeah, theres a reason i havent said jacksonville or wherever...

Or people have said 'let them go, good riddance fuck em' . You could interpret 14% of responses on here as supportive of it , if you were that way inclined. As a veteran of the Brexit thread you know how easy it is for one side to take the meaning of something and twist it .

Good points, maybe the survey was to narrow, not enough scope within the questions. Anyway it doesn't affect us, so like most on here, fuck em.

Veteran of the brexit thread 😃

I am amazed it is not more given the access people will have to the "Top football". match going folk won't like it but millions will log in at tea time mid week and watch the games.
