Break Away League

This break away league when you read about it doesn't sound that bad?

Hear me out.

It seems to be set to run in tandem with the domestic league. It's a mid week competition, so essentially it will be just be replacing UEFA's Champions League.

At first I thought it was a break out league outright. But it's not.

Or they are smart negotiators. They generally tend to put ridiculous clauses in first offer, to drop them as the negotiations proceed. FA is doing the same by saying they want allow ESL players to represent their country.

But that would mean they are negotiating to set up a league for who? It's the clubs behind this entire thing, why would they create something there were not guaranteed to be involved in.

They are almost guaranteed to be involved even if they change the format to top6.

ESL will increase the wealth gap even further. so barring an utter catastrophe, all the founding members are guaranteed to participate every season

Maybe except for Arsenal and spurs

And you honestly believe Spurs and Arsenal would be on board with setting something like to this up if they then may not be part of it some years!

Yes, I think they will back themselves to qualify on merit. They will definitely finish top six almost every year.

Even if they don’t, it a much more profitable alternative to what they face at the moment

This seems like the inevitable evolution of the current CL. Personally I don’t care either way but I do think the formation of the super league will be overall positive for football .

The proposed format is utterly ridiculous though, guaranteed participation goes against everything the game stands for.

If they change the big six to top six in the league, there won’t be many issues with it. Teams from Russia. Turkeys, Scotland etc adds nothing to the current competition. If they cull them and let the best teams in the continent regularly play against each other, it’ll be a much better European competition imo

Well said, objective comment. I feel like those playing Devil’s advocate on this don’t quite comprehend that the idea of guaranteed entry each year is a massive issue.

Ajax - 4 time winners of the European Cup = No Super Lesgue.

Man City - Not even made the final of the European Cup = Super League.

And that’s all I have to say about that.

Wow it's almost as if it were just about the money.

I keep hearing people mockingly ask why Spurs and Arsenal are in a Super League when they're underperforming. Well go look at the list of the top 10-15 richest football clubs and you'll get your answer.

Am glued to SSN, they’re talking about the financial problems of some of these “super” clubs.

Barcelona one billion euros in debt for example. Makes the whole thing even more cynical and grasping!
