Agree about city and their squad

I'm half of a mind with tinhead in that it's a bit of a bargaining stance with uefa but it does seem a much stronger approach than previously

I think city are the exception, everyone else would struggle in my opinion, especially the 2 north london teams.
The clubs have played their hands now, it wont go away, itll just keep coming back every few years

Easy target I guess

The politicians should just sod off. Puts me in mind of that character that was on one of the sketch shows who would go to the football but was totally out of place. Was it the lad out of cold feet that did it? He'd say things like 'yes! Go football!'

Bunch of turds

Andydave- I'm not sure about the weakened teams in the premier league being any different than it is now when the likes of city have a Saturday match against Brighton followed by a midweek against Bayern. They have to register a squad of 23 (I think) and I doubt the 1st team players would be happy with being left out.

Talk of banning players is just a ploy. It's not their decision to join the ESL and they are contracted as employees so the wrong target for UEFA to go after.


Edit - just had a google. John Thompson on the fast show. Very funny

Trust you to bring everything around to Brexit, you are so bitter

Still trying to work out how that Labour woman said it wouldn't of happened if they were in charge. Maybe they have shares in Barca, Real etc

Of course they want to carry on playing domestically, they want to pocket more money, they will just play their reserves in premier league games instead of their first team, which in effect will devalue the premier league, and then the so called smaller clubs will be hit where it hurts.
I genuinely hope the other 14 clubs call their bluff on it, kick them out and say get on with it if that's what you want, but wr will see what means more, their values or their balance sheets.....

Yep - it's ok for us to rinse the game but not for someone else to do it....

And as for Boris and co.... bunch of turds. Genuine global companies based in England trying to do big business post Brexit.... we can't have that. Unless we've got shares in it of course.... S

Wouldn't say I'm keen on it, just can't be doing with all the hypocrisy and melodrama

Man Utd fans on the radio while I was driving home saying they've phoned to cancel their season ticket renewal... they weren't complaining when sky and the birth of the premier league pumped millions into old Trafford were they? (I'm sure it's the same for other clubs and fans too) Or when Nike or whoever pay millions to have a name on a shirt.

From my reading, none of the clubs involved have said they don't want to continue playing in domestic leagues or UEFA competition.

I'm just a bit more realist I guess.

These are now huge businesses who have lost millions in the pandemic and there's finance and a model for recouping that loss that they are looking at. My club came dangerously close to bankruptcy a few years back so romantic notions of 100 years of old men in flat caps smoking woodbines probably carries less clout than JP Morgan's offer

Just been watching Sky News. Some Labour women got up and blamed the Tories for the Super League!
Why the need for constant political point scoring. Both sides are against it so why not put aside their differences and unite together against it.

Edit
Mal you seem keen on this Super League? You had your season last year, you're back where you belong now, or is it the case you fancy this new league because you can't get relegated from it

Told you not to worry bout him jimmer. No surprise at all. People might put up with his awful style of football if they are winning - Chelsea (1st time round) - but when it's **** results AND **** football, then what's the point?

As for the ESL... the hypocrisy of the premier league and UEFA is hilarious. 'It's all about greed and money' .... just like the premier league and just like the champions league. There was a guy on the radio talking about money spoiling the traditions of the game and totally missing the irony when he talked about the big six abandoning the 'Carabao Cup' (not been the good old fashioned 'League cup' for a while. Meanwhile the champions league is expanded - for football reasons? Yeah right. And the premier league looks on while their beloved football pyramid sees more and more clubs go into administration.

Lots of posturing and threats that are probably in breach of so many contract and employment laws (banning teams / players etc.)

The premier league throwing out those clubs? As if. That's like someone trying to sell a car when they've taken all the wheels off and replaced the engine with an elastic band. Hands up who's forking out for sky sports to watch palace vs Norwich.....

Yes it's about making money. But the pragmatic truth of the world is that these clubs generate way more money than most others and people will happily pay more to watch the likes of Messi and Ronaldo than they will for Jordan Pickford. Football stopped being purist a long time ago.

Seems the only people in favour of the ESL are the greedy club owners. If I was playing for one of the 'Dirty Dozen' and was being told by doing so would mean not being able to represent my country I would be off! If the players disagree with all of this then where does that leave the club?
More worrying is that as from tomorrow all players and teams could be banned from all competitions including the Premier League which would leave Leicester and West Ham to fight it out.

So predictable. What on earth possessed Spurs employing a busted flush I just donít know. Lovely pay off Jose. Great work if you can get it, and boy, did those plonkers fall for it.
