Part of me would have loved to see them leave, watch it fuck up and then see them crawl their way back up. 

That actually sort of sums up Sunday-Tuesday  

Bizarre

Mate, I have no idea what you do for a job but I presume something techy.

However on a footy forum you need to write in at least basic English to be understood by us less tech savvy.

i dunno , i just wanted everyones bluff called. 

but

it was either-

never meant to get off the ground and was a ploy for a bigger slice of pie. 

or

it was a setup by uefa to make their reforms to the european cup seem more pallatable by comparision. Like the rumour about the New Coke thing being a failure on purpose. So that when they brought the old stuff back folk would over buy it through nostalgia or fear of it going away again. 

i used the term "false flag" about getting folk onside. but the new coke comparision possibly works better than that in this context  . 

i might not be right, but those are two things that came to mind. i'm just trying to work it out . i'm not really bothered about it , but parts of it dont ring true. 

all IMO

With a bit of luck ... the Glazers see their arses & decide it's simply not worth bothering.

They make it known that the club's for sale.

A consortium fronted by 'the Class of 92' takes over. It a turns out to be a bit more difficult than they realise & become perennial strugglers.

Meanwhile 'The 92' forget all about Salford, they slither down to the North Manchester Wednesday Afternoon level before folding & being a minor hicough in the history books.

I think the money men will think twice now with it. They have just lost 50% of the £350million per club pie. Can’t see the yanks being happy with that. 
 

hopefully we get some big reforms. People know the Prem is shit now. Too much money. We need more fan involvement similar to Germany.

Need the 51 club German models. The main reason the German sides didn’t sign up

Loads of fans from the big six out protesting this week so far. 

Can sympathise with em to be honest. 

I've been a bit out the loop with this thread though. I imagine all the folk moaning about blm protests and vigils have also been up in arms about the football lads out this week? 

From a Covid-19 perspective?

Shouldn't be there.

From a behaviour perspective: no statues ripped up, no cars burned, no police attacked and no buildings smashed up. Football fans eh; complete cunts, all need twatting with truncheons and convicting of right wing extremism.

There you go, feel better?

It's very cute that they've apologised but are they not just going to waltz away with no consequences still not giving a fuck and putting it to one side for now?

 

I know some are saying they should be punished, well that's not going to happen - as you suggest, we'll just return back to "normal" now, and it'll rear it's head again in another few years. I'd expect the next step for these big clubs, is to play a some "home" games on foreign soil, and I'd not be surprised to see that be accepted before the end of this decade

Should be hit with a suspended punishment but that’s not fair on players staff and fans

Should be a massive fine to the owners but doubt that would bother them or prevent them in the future

Loads better, thank you 👍

I love football fans me - I think the police handled it all very well by letting them take place. Covid's here to stay so it seems, and as cases go down then some reasons justify being on the streets. Especially if the heart of your club is at stake. 

A valid point re aspects of the blm and kill the bill protests. Maybe difficult to apply to women's ones. Police acted completely differently with the football fans. Unless I've missed something and there were loads of arrests?

When we did not pay our bills our players and fans got punished with an embargo and points deduction. 
You try and fuck over the whole system for your own personal greed and that is just forgotten ? Do not get me wrong they will get away with it unpunished but the logic is bollocks. They are big rich and powerful, an elite beyond the rules. 
They try to fuck the whole system and that is OK.

I completely agree. 
Hopefully there is a punishment in place in the rulebook for such things but I doubt it
