  1. He is most days whenever Jim White isn't squeeling over him with sensationalist nonsense.
  2. Don't think that suits those involved as it doesn't provide certainty of income which is one of the key factors in the proposed breakaway. Hypothtically if this was to be offered by the Slimey 12 however to push the ESL through then you are still left with a scenario where football is now governed by 15 clubs rather than UEFA and if they aren't getting there own way in 5 years time they'll presumably have the power to do whatever they want i.e. expel teams they no longer want in the league etc.
  3. Fine I'll never set foot in the zoo either just to be on the safe side, always thought there was something shifty looking about those giraffes anyway Or because he basically stole that club
  4. The same as I do now and I would never go near Ashton Gate again
  5. All this talk about how they miss the supporters throughout this pandemic and when they are on the verge of getting them back into stadiums they do this! This is going to get extremely ugly for the 6 involved and the worst thing about it is those other clubs in the Premier League whilst they will take the moral high ground on this i have no doubt if they were offered a place would take it in a heartbeat. The games practically dead now as far as I'm concerned, absolutely disgusting sport
  6. The alternative is to let them do it and compete at a major financial disadvantage to them as nit only would they Big 6 have their ESL money, the value of the Premier League would be devalued so the remaining 14 clubs would have a chunk of a considerably smaller pie. At that point is it still worth playing Man Utd reserves twice a season?
  7. Correct, they have killed the English game for me now whether they stay or not. At a time where all clubs are struggling with the uncertainty COVID has brought this is a really ugly move from the Slimey 12.
  8. Even the actual format of it is crap with the 2 x 10 team leagues. By the halfway point at least 30% of teams will have nothing to play for I.e. Spurs, Arsenal, Milan leaving them marooned in a league their fans don't want to be in with no chance of any success. A lot of the media comments today are along the lines of "if this goes through then x y z should happen" for me the fact they have even threatened it even if it is to leverage a more profitable outcome from UEFA is enough for real action from supporters and rival clubs.
  9. Think Lansdown has bigger problems to resolve in terms of Bristol City than worrying about putting a statement together that those 12 clubs won't even read.
  10. Couldn't agree more, there needs to be some sort of TV boycott of this game given the participants.
  11. It's not a case of Southgate vouching for them though is it, if UEFA bans any players who's registration is held by one of the 12 at the time the squad is to be announced then we are saying that literally dozens of £50-100m transfers need to be completed within the next 6 weeks. There isn't the time or money available for this to happen and it wouldn't be players fault so why should they be punished for decisions made in their respective boardrooms?
  12. If UEFA's threat is carried out it needs to be after this summer, it wouldn't be fair on the players who miss out as by that point they wouldn't have had a chance to get out of the Slimey League clubs to continue their international careers if they wish to do so.
