Correct

If you are a football fan why didn't you go and support a lower league side,  for a fraction of the cost you'd have paid at the top end ?

That wouldn't have changed the direction that football was heading in.  I am no longer a football fan!

Well according to a reporter on talk sport Chelsea and Man city could be starting to have second thoughts already. Hoping it goes ahead and they all get kicked out but I think it won't happen. I hope they don't bend over backwards to talk them into staying.

Let them go and form the league,then UEFA and FIFA and the FA should enforce the rules currently in place. They were happy to ban all Ennglish teams when it suited their policies, English football only went from strength to stregth on the back of it. The PL is now the chosen destination  of many players - attracted by vast wealth and competitive football. They can get vast wealth in China or elsewhere but the footballing standard  is currently  crap.

Arsenal pulling out too by the looks of it, ed Woodward resigning from MUFC. Noticeable that the American-owned contingent have stayed quiet. It looks dead now - you were right, but it will come around again. I have to say I'm surprised how quick it's all falling apart. Sending Perez out to bat to the media wasn't a wise move though.

When you look at the amount of current debt, (with the exception of Chelsea on a small profit), each of the 12 breakaway clubs are carrying, you can see why they were looking for a way to boost their finances.  £2.3 billion in debt between them.

But at the end of the day, a who's fault is that?  And if they had broken away, what would happen eventually to the new money?  Of course, it'd go to pay higher players' salaries & inflated agents' fees.

Looks like the ESL might just have saved football after all. It’s taken just 24 hours for supporter power to force some of the richest men in the world into a humiliating climb down.

 

I’d still like to see the six English clubs chucked out of the Premier League, but sadly, Carlsberg sponsor Liverpool.

Someone pointed out elsewhere that the first two to pull out - Chelsea and Man City - didn't need the Super League money because they are bankrolled by some of the world's richest and most despicable people, so it's probably got very little to do with principles.

I've just caught a bit of Talk Sport on the radio.  They've just mentioned that the 12 clubs also. all voted in favour for UEFA's plan to expand the Champions League to 36 clubs. 

 

Obviously thought that they could make more money by the additional revenue from that tournament as well with the extended format? 

 

Nobody has mention the old moan of playing too many games?

😄 It makes you wonder what sort of people the likes of Florentino Perez surround themselves with, given that they didn't seem to see this backlash coming.
