  1. The reality is woman’s football at this stage of its development is not a “ business proposition “, but for a club like City it is an opportunity to provide a platform to grow the game in the South West. Rather than invest in top players from who knows where I believe City would be better off to allow the team to be relegated to a level that they can compete in, and use what resources we have to produce our own players from local girls. We will never match Man City / Chelsea etc in this league but we can help grow the sport in the SW and in time begin to climb the women’s pyramid whilst pro
  2. The “believe” bit summed up a very special season, few players ever get to do that.
  3. On who the five would be, it would simply be the five that pay the most, this is franchise football, your history means f all.
  4. A number of people saying that the fans won’t accept it, these greedy b@@@@@d’s know that for every genuine ManU / scouser that actually goes to a game there are a 000’ or more Asians and the rest watching on TV, none of whom know where Burnley is. The new European Super League will, in my view, copy the NFL, each “member” being a franchise, no relegation and salary caps. Obtaining the franchise Is the cost, no relegation reduces the risk, and the salary cap keeps the profits in the hands of the owners. For the rest left in the current Premier League, income will drastically drop as
  5. In a season where we will be playing two games a week, week in week out, sharing the three positions between these five players may be our ace in the pack.
  6. I think they are looking to play it as a poker game, the L1 & L2 clubs are just ( in their opinion) minor cards that can be discarded.. As they fall one by one that would put more pressure on the “ non special “ PL clubs to accept the deal. My concern is , how many clubs fold, whilst this negotiation plays out. The Americans know how to play hard ball
  7. The benefit on offer, in my opinion, is basically good, but the “price “ demanded in return would change football forever. This is clearly the first step to a European ( or even World?) Super League run by billionaire franchise owners who would not give a flying ..... about the FA, UEFA or FIFA, they would effectively own football. My immediate concern is that unless there is immediate help from the PL , many EFL clubs will start to fold very soon. The PL are , I understand discussing Project Big Picture today, and a EFL bailout, if an argument on this means no agreement can b
  8. What I don’t get is how they will get this through, They need 14 PL clubs to agree, seems they have 8, but why would the others vote for it ? The EFL would have no choice , as they need the money, but what do the “ non special status “ PL clubs get for backing the scheme?
  9. A power grab by the big six, plus a couple of wannabees, could their motive be that by freeing up more dates in their calendars, they leave room for a European Super League . Why play Burnley, when you could be playing Barcelona?
  10. Arsenal , that game, our first in division one, never will forget climbing the stairs to see the green of the pitch and the massed cider army. Result was pretty good too
