  • Glad the ESL has been stopped - its plainly wrong. However I will not be lectured on "Greed" by Roy Keane - a man who held Man Utd to ransom over his £50k per week wages. That was also 'Greed'.

Go figure...all mouths of UEFA who has introduced more games to play for what but make money.

  • "open competition" what a joke. European football is a joke, there is no parity and each league is dominated by their own version of the Yankees. the rich teams are perpetually at the top. Can't stand watching this sport and dont get me started on the corporate sponsorship issue, is it Manchester United or Manchester Chevrolets. Totally sponsorship whores with no integrity. Euro trash all the way.

  • It's pure greed and at end they got what they wanted: money. We now know that UEFA is going to ease the Financial Fair Play and the contract for pay per view are going to be reviewed in Spain which mean more money from Qatar, the Emirates, China or Russia and more money for Real, Barça and Atlético compared to what other clubs get from TVs. Those Sharks wanted to remain big and they managed to do so. They were loosing influence to smaller clubs like, Lille, Leipzig or Atalanta since the Fair Play were introduced and now everything is going back to "normal". The Super League op was just a false flag op. The withdrawal of all these clubs was too "easy".

  • What's greed is that you players want more and more money. This things had to happen if you guys want to be the best paid of any sport. It's unbelievable that clubs that cheated the "rules of football" (petrol money) are claiming about this superleague. If chelsea was never sold to Abramovich it would have never been in a champions league game.

  • If you think the premise for the ESL is based on PURE FINANCIAL GREED . When the cost of the game has increased over the years and players are now basically millionaires on the wages some clubs .. are forking out .. European Cup is now basically a MINI LEAGUE You're argument citing Financial greed is null and void

  • Yes, Sir Neville, we all should be disgusted! Sportsmanship and merit are principles that no longer belong to football. They were replaced by mercantilism. Money speaks. The turn was taken in the 90s, when UEFA set up the so-called Champions League. No one in the West protested, no one spoke of greed or shame. All the money went to some strong championships, while the rest of Europe sank silently. You English, Spanish, French, Italians and Germans rejoiced, because all the valuable players in the world came to your countries. It didn't bother you that a team from the fourth place plays in CL, just like the league champion! What interest could a PL team have to win the domestic championship? You have devalued your own league! A lot of teams became best in Europe not being best in its own league! The establishment of CL triggered a race for footballers' salaries. Many players no longer want to play for their national team, so as not to get injured! Football is no longer for the fans, it is for the sheikhs and the televisions. The Super League will be established, whether we like it or not. It is the only way the owners could avoid bankruptcy and also maintain the wage race. With love from Romania!

  • I wish the clubs going for this monstrosity would be punished by the league. Here is what I would like to see: the first two clubs to see their error relegated to the Championship. The next two relegated to League One. And the remaining two to League Two. The Premiere League would probably suffer at the beginning, but then fans would realize that this is a cool running competition. And love it. For the "chosen $ix" it shou£d be a le$$on: "You can foo£ a££ of the peop£e $ome of the time and $ome of the peop£e a££ the time, but you can't foo£ a££ the peop£e a££ the time" (Abraham Lincoln? I am not sure ...)

  • This greedy-to-the-bone action does not benefit the European Football Network in any absolute way. On the contrary, it gives a big blow to it (for many reasons analyzed already thoroughly). The big irony though, is that it does not benefit even the clubs that participate in it. Why? Because it simply benefits the corporation part of those clubs. A football club is so much more; it is the uniform, the fans, the history, the players, the trophies. And all of them/us are disgusted.

  • Relegate all six to League One and dock them 20 points for the coming season . Teach them some humility . Even with their resources it would take them quite a while to EARN their way back to the Premier League and they may even get beaten by some of those "inferior" little clubs on the way . Bye the way I am a Spurs supporter of 50 years .

  • Shouldn’t be allowed full stop. Who do these clubs owners think they are?! Football is part of our heritage in the same way as any listed building is. You wouldn’t allow a builder to destroy a listed building he’s been lucky enough to be allowed to purchase. On the condition he maintains it in its original form. This is the same thing on a much larger scale. And should be treated as such. Football is just as much a part of our heritage in the same way. And should be protected from these ass holes in the game with all the power. Just because you can doesn’t mean you should. Greedy foreign owners. Bunch of soulless wk stains.

  • For the next 100 years, the First Division was the top professional league in English football. In 1992 the 22 clubs making up the First Division elected to resign from the Football League and set up the Premier League. The Football League was consequently re-organised, with the Second, Third and Fourth Divisions renamed the First, Second and Third respectively. Thus, the First Division, while still the top level of the Football League became the second level of the entire English football league syste

  • Let them go. Why can't we go back to to Divisions 1,2,3 etc.? Premier/First? It's just a title. Let these six go and play in this Groundhog Day 'Super League'. But make it perfectly clear that they will NEVER be allowed back into the English League. So when it all goes tits up they will be in the wilderness. The F. A. - U.E.F.A. & F.I.F.A must stand together and not allow these teams to dictate what happens to the game. Billionaire foreign owners with to knowledge of the game, its history, its traditions and zero regard for the fans who, let's face it are who the game is for, are in it for the money. The Americans want to turn it into a meaningless money-making enterprise with no relegation and no promotion. That will kill incentive and the passion. This is a cynical ploy by big business. It needs to be stopped now. Sanctions should be imposed on the Big 6(!) English clubs for signing up to this.

  • I can't understand all these Super League naysayers. All they are talking about is how bad it is and how it'll kill the football spirit. What the heck is the football spirit anyway? They use fancy Robin-Hood-like communist slogans: "Created by the poor, stolen by the rich". Was it stolen though? I tend to think that it was refined, developed, and brought to a new level. What football would look like without great managers like Perez? I doubt that we would have all these nice big stadiums. It has suddenly become bad to be rich. Although, the only thing that differs between the rich and the poor is that the latter are too lazy to work as hard as the first. Perez was able to attract previously unimaginable investments for the creation of the Super League. Undoubtedly, this will only benefit the development of the game. People for some mysterious reason desperately support UEFA. But what have they done for the development of football? All they seem to do is to fail big clubs. Hence, the CEOs had to act to save their businesses. And be not mistaken, a football club first and foremost is a company. Thus, its main role is generating income. And there's nothing bad about it. Put yourself in Perez's shoes. What would you do in his situation? How would you act? Imagine the US government telling Tim Cook to cut down the production of iPhones because America needs more Motorolas. Hilarious, right? UEFA has shown its real face of greedy bureaucrats, dictators, and usurpers in this situation. People who threat to ban anything are not good. But even their threats would benefit the Super League. They don't favor letting players leaving for national matches anyway. And why do people fight so much for national leagues and competitions? Do they promote patriotism? Isn't it just another word for racism? It would explain why there are so many so-called 'fans', who are ultras, in reality, supporting UEFA. If you still don't understand why the Super League is a good idea and why UEFA is a harmful organization, I would highly recommend you read some of Ayn Rand's books. Anyway, I would like to appreciate Florentino Perez and his partners for this bold move and to wish to overcome all the challenges in the nearest future. In the dark times, we live indeed.
