  1. That's not fair he had two shots. And they both proved that he's not very good at shooting... (Actually the evidence has been ever since he joined)
  2. I was going to comment on that. Another manager who gives Palmer a chance ends up going off him, so to speak.
  3. I'm not reaching. I'm trusting that Jack Pitt-Brooke and others at The Athletic had reasonable sources for their piece "He sucked the life out of the club - the inside story of Jose Mourinho's downfall at Tottenham." Instagram not a great source...for anything based on reality!
  4. It's defending set-pieces that worries me!
  5. Transfer bans could work. ... On another note, Bayern and Dortmund were never invited to join the ESL. Perez already knew they were too moderate (and potentially hamstrung?), so he kept them out of it. Interestingly, Bayern support a salary cap.
  6. Too right! It would damage our brand if they beat us and the financial consequences would be immeasurable (fortunately). Get well soon mate
  7. Just a thought, what do the Champions League sponsors and TV networks want? Are they happy for their product to be deprived many key players in their product? Any punishment that causes financial loss to football - off the back of Covid - could be cutting your nose off? I'm just trying to think like the money men here.
  8. I genuinely think that had the ESL done a better job at selling this to important stakeholders such as sponsors, managers and players, they would have been happy to ignore the uproar from fans. I also worry about fan hubris when in reality we are ignored time and again. Hope you're right that fans had influence. Certainly the collective did.
  9. Surely the voices that resonated were player, managers, sponsors.
  10. How do you think fans turned this around?
  11. Fair enough. There have been a few comments in the press that the 12 hadn't thought a lot of it through. From the Athletic: Woodward is on his knees because United, and their conspirators, fundamentally misunderstood the challenge of breaking away. The strategy of the Super League, astonishingly amateur in its execution, contrived to alienate every possible stakeholder. They even lost the faith of sponsors, as Liverpool’s timing sponsor has now pulled out.
  12. Fair play to Man City?!! They signed up to the damn thing. They don't get any credit. I don't think so. It was just a PR disaster and they announced it before working out the technicalities. Yeah if SL wanted to sell City to dodgy investors, I'd want the fans to have a veto option.
  13. What has been staggering is how badly the ESL clubs played their hand. They didn't have a united front, the messaging was non-existent, they didn't get key staff on board prior to the announcement, they let the managers and players sweat on camera. Appalling planning and PR.
