Spurs season ends Sunday.

Win or lose in the EFL final. The rest of the season is pointless as you are assured a place in the Globetrotters league next season.

Same applies to Liverpool and Chelsea, nothing to play for anymore. What a load of cockwombles these club owners are.

Another obsessed West Ham fan. Their best ever season and non stop spurs articles on their board

The only good thing about this ESL thing is seeing all the hammers fans crying and raging, thinking they should be there instead of us because they’re above us for the first time in two decades.

I guess you take your name from the "Ace Face" played by Sting in Quadrophenia.

That's perfect, because like him you act all tough and just like him I strongly suspect that in real life you are a sad pathetic little excuse for a man.

This whole ESL thing has ruined the firing of Mourinho.

I find it weird that the general consensus of some spurs fans is "thank god we're in it". In what? The misconception is that we'll be making loads of money, buying top players and dominating along with the others. Dominating what exactly? The PL, FA Cup and League will just be cast aside as second rate competitions and the only one with any credibility will be the ESL, which we'll be bottom of the pile on.

This has absolutely no upside for me. The only positive I can see is that 6 greedy owners in our league will be richer. It's just lining pockets. Simple as that. There is literally no upside at all.

This has to stop. It's almost criminal. I made comparisons earlier in another post about the fact that change is always inevitable, the leap from the first division to the Premier League has been a huge success. The one common thing that both of those share though is competition. Promotion. Relegation. A chance for others to join, the risk of those in it to drop out. That's what the integrity of competition is all about. We love the CL because we rarely get in it. It's a reward for the journey you've been on in the previous season. You'll soon get bored of Spurs v Barcelona if we've not done the hard yards to get there. It'll become like any other fixture. The great fallacy here is that it's being pitched as the ultimate Champions League. It's precisely because we don't face these sides on a regular basis that brings the attention to the fan base. I guarantee you, 3-4 years down the line, the thought of facing Barcelona will bring the same level of excitement as a trip to Sheffield United on a cold Monday night. Novelty will vanish.

This is not about making football better. It's not even about making those clubs better. It's about owners grabbing all the money. That's the bottom line.

If this gets off the ground, football is dead.

Have you read Perez's quotes from earlier on?

The plan is for the super league to replace the CL.

It is expected the teams will still be in the Prem and in the other respected leagues. No way are they getting expelled. They are too big to be cast aside.

He basically said Real have lost €400m due to covid and other teams are in a similar position.

I am against it but all the clubs signed up on saturday and the contract is binding. The true cost of covid is unknown to us fans and he believe the ESL is the only way to save the clubs and the Pryamid. He is off his head.

General consensus? Seems to be very few who are pro Esl.

Gradually everyone will be on board, just like for any new controversial project.
What's the alternative? Fishing?
Denial- Anger - Bargaining.... etc..... ending in Acceptance...

My point is that even though you say this will only replace the CL and all other competitions will stay the same, they won't will they. This effectively makes the chase for top 4 null and void as the six clubs normally scrambling to be in it won't need to bother as they'll have their position guaranteed. What does that mean? Well with a European place already guaranteed and say, for instance, we're too far behind in the Prem race, clubs will play second string teams to save their players for the ESL. You could argue that this happens now to a certain extent but the difference is that currently, whilst you might rest a few for an important midweek game, you still take the league match seriously to make sure you qualify for the CL next season. All of that would be gone. We would be permanently in European competition. You'll be surprised how quickly this will get boring.

The fun is had achieving it, not having it handed to us on a plate.

Football it used to be fun.
