  1. Presumably there is another league with teams like Leicester, Palace, Fulham and Brighton in it? Because if not it's as big a load of bollocks as the ESL. Aberdeen and Hearts over Leicester City.............how can anyone take that remotely seriously?
  2. Exactly the same. Wouldn't watch the club under whoever the owner was until he was booted out and not at all, ever, if they remained in that league. Plenty of decent non-league football to watch round here.
  3. If it's global appeal they want then **** off and build 12 stadiums in Abu Dhabi and don't come back...............................
  4. Fair play to the Leeds lads wearing warm up T Shirts saying "Earn It" on the front and "Football is for the Fans" on the back. Hope we see a bit more of that when the "Big 4" plus the two bang average North London clubs (who will be scrapping it out for 9-10th place every season in this new league) roll into town.
  5. That's the point. Everyone has bent over backwards for the big clubs and it is still not enough. Whatever you do for them will never be enough so it really is best if you can find a serious plan to survive without them...........ideally before they **** off. There are enough billionaires and brains outside the top 6 clubs to come up with something affordable and workable, accepting there will be a transition period where it's going to hurt remaining clubs in the pocket. It just means Leicester and West Ham won't be able to afford to pay players £95K per week...................how devastating!!
  6. I'm sure if that was the case Gareth Southgate could ask these players their intentions and if no response or they indicated they wish to play ESL then they get bombed out anyway. If they lie to get an England spot then that information will be in the public domain. That's what a principled Manager would do.
  7. It’s a shame fans aren’t in grounds atm. They would certainly let the big 6 know what they think and I would imagine some clubs would tell the likes of Levy to stay away. Again probably deliberate, thought out timing, because I think it would have got nasty.
  8. The irony is that Arsenal fans in meltdown over being in 9th place in the Prem will soon be supporting a club that will do well to finish 9th place every season in a 12 team league.
  9. I think they might look at Employment law as I suggested earlier. If these players are banned from playing International Football he has a "way in" to block work permits for foreign players. It would be great if, for once, everybody including Government sends a strong message to these clubs that "football just isn't about YOU" and if there has to be some serious pain in lower revenues, lower wages for players and whatever else we'll do whatever it takes to get football back to what it should be.......competitive sport not a closed shop for foreign Asset Managers to acquire ever increasing numb
  10. Elite but shit in Arsenal’s case. Not quite elite and pretty average in Tottenham’s case. Take Kane and Son out of that side and they are as shit as Arsenal.
  11. I haven’t watched Champions League football for about 3 years now. Couldn’t care less about it. However at least it’s a format where teams in every European League can qualify rather than a repetitive closed shop between 12 teams from 3 countries. Anyone who watches that needs their head examining, is not a true football fan and I would go as far to say is anti-football.
  12. Anybody that tunes into this league isn’t a true football fan in my view. No point spouting all this hot air and then bending over and watching it.
  13. They’ll lose loads of tv money now anyway. I don’t see Sky and BT paying billions for a league with six practice squads in it. The next thing they would be after is no relegation from the Premier League for their practice squads, make no bones about it.
  14. So what do you do? Lie on your back and allow six clubs to tickle your tummy?
  15. They’ve said too much not to now. Not only that but there is too much support for their threatened sanctions from the general public and people within the game for them to shit out now. I think these clubs have gone over the tipping point. I was surprised how disparaging the UEFA statement was too. They have done everything to favour these clubs at the expense of everyone else and it still isn’t enough.
  16. I watched a game at Sincil Bank once (non City) and it was about -10!!! Even the half time cuppa froze!!
  17. The EPL and FA have to take immediate steps to expel these clubs. If they allow these clubs to have a EPL Practice Squad (deliberately using NFL terminology) and a ESL squad then they may as well come out in support of the idea. You can see it now - EPL Season Ticket for the masses, ESL Season Ticket for the more “discerning” fan!! They have to be kicked out of the English game if it goes any further.
  18. But as we have seen football is shite in half empty stadiums. Unfortunately I could see Man Utd and Arsenal fans making a stand, possibly Man City but the fans of the other three teams are slags who’ll lap it up.
  19. Agree. The days when the likes of Nakhi Wells are very well paid rather than obscenely paid can’t come soon enough for me. A huge “market correction” is needed in the basket case that is football finances.........
  20. That’s what these Yanks/Russians/Arab owners are banking on. Would be nice if everyone making noise stuck to their principles. I don’t even bother with the Champions League any more so certainly won’t have any part of this shite I know that much.
  21. It might be a better and more even competition though.
  22. The one thing that would kill it is lack of interest but that would involve people, tv companies, sponsors and advertisers requiring principles and sticking to them!! If it goes ahead I fear that many of these fans of top 6 clubs “up in arms” will quietly purchase their season tickets.
