Let them do it but beat them up for it. Neville is bang on, take 40 points each off them this campaign. Be beautiful, that.

Also, wot? No Newcastle?

If it's midweek only and dosnt affect them playing in the premiership , can't see a problem  :like:
They may have to field some fringe players for our weekend games, but that is good for the other teams  :like:
Yes it's all about money, but that dosnt matter to me and you , it's big business and big businesses will always look for ways of making more money .
For you and me, it's more football on tv and to see our best against Europe's best week in week out is fantastic  :like:

Clearly not one bit of consideration for the fans of all the clubs involved.  This new league will price out most fans, who just couldnt afford international travel multiple times a year.........year after year!

Boot them out of Prem, champions league and leave them to rot with their global fans, fuck em, would make what remains better in the long run, would only feel sorry for their fans as they will have effectively lost their clubs.

They still want to play in the premier league just ditch the champions league for this, itís more uefa up shit creek than anyone, I donít think half the pundits have even read the info on it. Danny Murphy certainly hasnít had thinks they want to leave the premier league.

All about money and UEFA taking the piss constantly adding more games and teams to keep favour with smaller nations for votes etc that take money away rather than add value to the competition has bit them on the arse.

So you'll have 6 clubs on a completely different planet financially playing in the Prem? Next to no chance of anyone else getting in, absolute farce. Just get shot, job done.

I've said for years this was coming and to be honest they can all just fuck off for good as far as I'm concerned.

Wanting to watch your team play the so called elite clubs is for the Sky generation, where as older fans like me don't really care for watching us go to the Premier League and try to survive and exist there, like the Geordies are at the moment.

Let them go and have a season where we shift a lot of teams up the pyramid, maybe take the chance to reduce the Championship, L1 & L2 to 20-22 teams, keep the FA Cup and make the League Cup for 4 leagues between Championship & National.

Maybe even the chance to bring in the sweaties ..........imagine a league where you had the Glasgow, Edinburgh teams in there as well ?

How the hell do Spurs manage to sneak into this conversation anyway. Theyíve won fuck all for years. Not even close to being an elite club, what do they offer other than a shiny stadium

Maybe thatís why Mourinho got the job to begin with so people outside of England knew who they were.

If we are going for it, (if allowed) give the 4th Champions League spot to the FA Cup winners. January 3rd, or whatever, was one of the favourite Saturdays of the season. Stop teams fielding the Unders 8s or whatever.

No-one has mentioned yet, there's no German team and no PSG

It won't happen, but this could be great. Bin the fucking lot of them

There are already multiple clubs on a different planet financially, nothing changes from that respect.

I think the new definition of big club is those with the most money. Man City were in the wilderness for years until the money men got involved, now a big club? Spurs won fuck all for years, big club?, Arsenal, shite for 6/7 years how are these bigger than say, villa, Leeds and Everton. 4 of the English clubs are owned by Yanks, they want to control it like they do in the states. Players who are on contracts with these clubs canít represent their country. Fucking marvellous. The yanks might win the world cup

I'm still not certain what they are actually proposing.

They seem to want Bayern, Dortmund, PSG etc to join as well.

If they get, say, 20 teams lined up then that would be enough for a full on league.  Or is this supposed to be Champions League type set up with mini leagues followed by knock out?

If they are leaving their domestic leagues then they can fuck off and die.  If they are just leaving the Champions League then I don't really care - it's current format doesn't interest me anyway.  The European competitions should be pure home and away knock out.

It's probably just some stupid negotiating stance to get more money from existing competitions.

Foreign owners - particularly from the US - just don't understand what makes football special.  They are used to moving whole "franchises" from city to city - which is fucking shite.

I hate the modern world.

Ok... I found this summary in the Daily Heil....


Competition Format

ē 20 participating clubs with 15 Founding Clubs and a qualifying mechanism for a further five teams to qualify annually based on achievements in the prior season.

ē Midweek fixtures with all participating clubs continuing to compete in their respective national leagues, preserving the traditional domestic match calendar which remains at the heart of the club game.

ē An August start with clubs participating in two groups of ten, playing home and away fixtures, with the top three in each group automatically qualifying for the quarter finals.

Teams finishing fourth and fifth will then compete in a two-legged play-off for the remaining quarter-final positions. A two-leg knockout format will be used to reach the final at the end of May, which will be staged as a single fixture at a neutral venue.


So it looks more like a rival for the Champions League than anything else.

And these are the clubs that constantly whine about the amount of games played.

If it happens, which I doubt it will, it will also basically defunct the League Cup and undermine the FA Cup to basically a glorified Papa Johns Pizza Plaque status.

No relegation meaning no clubs can qualify for it, just an invitation system, how the fuck will that work? Theyíll play weakened sides in the premier league, wonít even bother with the F A cup or league cup. Itís the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham realising they are shit and not guaranteed qualifying for the champs league when the likes of WHU, Leicester and Everton might get a share of the big money. Jealousy and arrogance.

Looks like the wheels are falling off the ESL already, players from the club's coming out now against it.

Hope the greedy cunts decide to fuck off and sell their clubs when it all collapses  :wanker:

Get the idea but no players/managers or fans supported this.

Assume there is a financial penalty in the contract which hits the owners, would agree a financial penalty would also be appropriate. I would increase it in steps taking account of when they withdrew.

Hate Chelsea but they get the lowest fine, city next and then need to check evidence but at least double for those later

Youíve got to wonder if this is just an opening gambit. There were plans put forward to build to the rear of our house. Five storeys of apartments for over 55s with staff. Five fucking storeys. It was settled at three

Maybe watch this space

My view from listening to MSM which seemed informed is that Real and Barcelona are financially fucked and drove this. Also American owners are soulless bastards who think sport is business. They donít know about the roots that spread from Mill Hill field, Hackney Marshes, right the way to Lancaster Gate; early doors setting off to away games, travelling by fucked up Fiestas and now first class rail.

Football is at least 50% run by Sky anyway, and the big clubs will still bully the stuffed shirts at the FA

Not much different, it was just a step too far, and fair play to fans of clubs I normally hate

They'll be back with something else. Wouldn't surprise me if they go after the TV rights from the Premier League to get a Real Madrid/Barcelona type share.
