    Oligarch club who thrive under the status quo ride to its rescue? Amazed; Chelsea should be celebrated as saviours.

    Super League Poll

    It could have, but the authorities implementing it were the most corrupt of the bunch. As for those saying “no idea why anyone would be behind this!”, I yet again say: - Finals in Azerbaijan, Basel & the likes - Huge mounds of tickets going to the “UEFA family” - Corruption from the top down. From officials directly enriched (Platini; Blatter) to children and officials’ children’s-children being on the payroll of clubs under investigation - Seasons chopped up and entire calendars rearranged to accomodate World Cups in Qatar, piled on top of dead bodies - Empty or unenforced regulation. Enlarged fixture lists to swell FIFA/UEFA coffers. Absence of club consultation. - Ascension of the oil and sovereign wealth clubs. Plunge into debt of the Old Giants trying to chase the unregulated nouveau riche. There are many, many reasons as to why clubs should want to seize control. Execution of the concept is debatable but the status quo absolutely should not be allowed to stand.

    4-1 home defeat to the Dunders. Total humbling.

    Go fuck yourselves FSG

    I’m not ostensibly against the idea, but yet again the PR management has been woeful. Feels like they learned nothing from the first time around when this was leaked. As mentioned above, should have had a press conference lined up with the 12 heads of clubs. Letting the employees try and talk this away on TV to a media machine baying for blood was grossly unfair.

    The Ev will be fiending like Bubbles with their wage-bill when the funding is pulled

    Florentino Perez as Prop Joe at the head of the Cooperative. Agnelli would definitely be Marlo.

    Yes. Juventus too. All sorts of bond obligations on the horizon. I do not think UEFA/media conglomerates will give up their cash cow, and I do not think the Founding 12 will forego demands to their share of the pie and control of regulation, so I do not think this will go away.

    What constitutes a "money club"? On whose watch and under whose authority were "money clubs" created? Are "money clubs" only relevant when they sweep trophies from non-"money clubs"? In which case, are they highly relevant? Or are they still, then, not relevant, and if so has the entire game not become irrelevant under the watchful eyes of the authorities and governance boards who facilitated this and often celebrated this? Yes. This is also being examined purely from a British perspective. Such is the debt accrued by the old European Giants in trying to keep pace with the City and PSGs of the world, that this kind of competition may be one of the few ways in which they remain a going concern.

    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.

    Listening to Gary Neville try to co-opt Jurgen Klopp & put words into Klopp's mouth may be the most revolting thing I've ever heard on Sky TV. Takes some beating.

    And you can be sure that Purslow, Carragher, Neville et al would be crawling on their hands and knees, gagging to to lick the boots if there'd be a sizeable chunk of brokerage fee extended to them as part of all this.

    I love it to be honest. I have enormous gripes with FSG under-investment into LFC, but that is separate to this. Ceferin with his smug, empty threats is going over the exact same ground his predessors trod before him. Completely tone deaf to the power of the clubs. The only mafia in all this are UEFA/FIFA - authority bodies that add no content, no value and take a big fat 'protection fee' of sorts for keeping the charade going. Then these mental capitalist Yanks swagger in and show the 'Old Boys' UEFA racket up for the impotent beast it is and they're all up in arms. Dogs eating dogs.
  15. I must have been watching a completely different interview. He gave a very level-headed response where he also shifted a huge amount of responsibility for this development onto UEFA/FIFA enlargement of fixture lists and their greed.
