This much is true. But, he made a salient point. Klopp shouldn't have to be answering these questions. He's been used by his employers. And him and Neville are effectively on the same team.

Gary Neville is going to lose it Kevin Keegan style before the night is out

Did he just say the United players who died did in Munich did it for the champions league?

He did!

 

Conveniently missed out the bit that part of the reason they tried to rush back was because the FA were opposed to clubs playing in Europe and threatened to dock points if they didn't arrive back in time!

Well well. Full article below.

 

Keir Starmer urges government to block English clubs’ involvement in European Super League

 

EXCLUSIVE: The Labour Party leader is also in favour of at least limiting the ownership of clubs to reduce the amount of control clubs such as the current ‘Big Six’ occupy

 

Sir Keir Starmer has called on the government to introduce legislation to block English clubs’ involvement in The Super League, and even prise ownership from the current “Big Six” hierarchies so they have less control, stating there would be cross party support.

In an exclusive interview with The Independent on football’s crisis, to be published in full on Tuesday, the Labour Party leader said “there’s no excuse for not doing something given the level of support,” and what he described as “a wall of opposition” across society.

 

Starmer said that the government and football authorities have failed the sport through their laissez-faire approach to the game, and that a restructuring of club ownership would be central to Labour’s policy on the sport.

“My first stance is that it’s really for the Premier League and Uefa to try and sort this out with the clubs,” the opposition leader said. “But, if not, I’m really detecting now a willingness among politicians to legislate if that is necessary. It’s not an area where you’d expect legislation, but the strength of feeling is such that if the government is prepared to bring forward legislation, we would certainly look at it and support it

Michael Ball has done a piece in the Echo, you can feel the bitterness oozing from every sentence. Having a dig at "some clubs who moan about injuries over and over again". His head has well and truly fallen off.

Very glad to see a bit of critical foresight on here at least as to the motives of those spinning yarns against LFC et al here. The brass neck of The Machine that led us into the brave new world of 70 fixture seasons, the death of the UEFA Cup, the sale of the soul of the European Cup to the oil & Arab nations now turning around and holding themselves up as some sort of bastions for the heart of the game. The Murdochs & Radrizzanis of the world adopting some sort of 21st Century Working Class Vigil to protect the interests of their media conglomerates, and self-serving politicians hopping aboard the train decades after football has been sold to the highest bidder or criminal with deepest pockets. Its enough to make you wretch.

They'd be taken to court and lose under level playing field regulations, ironically.

 

Be great PR for Alex and the hateful mob though so they might brazen it out knowing they'd most likely lose.

Maybe I’m missing something but why could the govt. not write the legislation to suit their ends with an 80 seat majority & likely support if the Labour Party? I’m not a lawyer so it seems to me there is little to stop them from doing what they want here.

99,99% of the football world is against this soul-less, greedy, capitalist project. 

 

The one exception: this forum. Fantastic.

Football has long been a soul-less, greedy, capitalist project.  And as 99.9% of those who are against this seem unable to articulate why, beyond saying "greed" and "money", then I don't think it's a bad thing that there's others willing to step off the bandwagon and say "hang on a sec".

Carra and Neville were just asked how to improve things and both spoke for 6-7 minutes each, impassioned, and neither mentioned Manchester City or Chelsea once.  Not once. 

*Shakes head*.

Did Neville actually say it is "Woodward and LFC" behind this?

 

Not "Man Utd and Liverpool" (because that makes Man U look bad), and not "Woodward and Henry" (because that fails to make Liverpool look bad).

Yeah in Neville's head Man Utd's involvement is all Glazer and Woodwards fault and they are dragging Man Utd's name through the mud....but in Liverpools case it is all Liverpool FC and how the club has betrayed the city and the game.

 

Snide rat.

They are not relevant. They are purely «money clubs» and this was expected from them. It was not expected from LFC, so it is no surprise that we get the hardest reactions.

Genuine question, who thinks this thing will end up happening?

 

I do think that fans not being around the stadiums gives them perfect timing to push it through. I can't even imagine the hostility that would be directed their way if their was a packed Anfield. Still not sure if that makes the difference with this mob. They just see tv money and packed stadiums in Mumbai or Tokyo and they would move clubs abroad if it gets hostile. Ultimately Boris the twat, Jeremy Corbyn, Prince William, Ian Holloway, Carra and Neville mean fuck all to John Henry. They see billions upon billions of profit, which means that fan ownership is off the table. It would possibly cost 5 billion to buy out these cowboys. Possibly more.

 

Jurgen looked furious tonight as did Millie. Will it be the players threatening to walk from multiple clubs and the big stars refusing to join that could put an end to it. Mbappe, Neymar, Bayern Munich players and multiple others not being in it makes it far less interesting for broadcasters. Looking at our team, I could see multiple players that could walk. They signed up to play for us but not to miss out on playing for their country. Robbo and the Brazilians being the most obvious. Would Sadio fuck over his people in Senegal? Would Mo fuck over his people in Egypt? No shock that Liverpool and Everton are the least patriotic fanbases in the country, but lets not forget playing for England, Scotland, Senegal, Argentina etc means a lot to the majority of players. Ingerlund means fuck all to me, but right now I hope that international football is what stops this shite in it's tracks.
