Of course all the uefa and the Premier league are strongly against it. If you believe the reason is due to some honest passion for grass roots football then you're an idiot. If you challenge the powers that be with an alternative that means they lose money of course they will complain. Decentralising the money and power in football from these often corrupt organisations and giving all the power and money direct to the clubs is the natural progression from what we have now

Creation of Sky/PL
FFP to protect the elite clubs from being challenged then suddenly scrapped when Real/Barca are skint and need a rebuild.

This is bad, but is it really much worse than the above?

ESL is a farce, but I’ve read into UEFA’s planned reformatting of the CL and it really isn’t much better. Can we really blame these clubs for wanting to break away from proven corrupt organisations?

It's a fair point. Look at the XL now compared to the European Cup back in the day. Effectively it's as close to a closed shop as you can get without actually becoming one.

You have more chance of winning the CL after finishing 4th in England or Spain than by winning the league in Croatia or the Czech Republic.

Are UEFA really stupid enough to think they could survive without the income generated from these clubs?

They would see revenues drop off a cliff if the ESL went ahead. This is why they're so worried. They need those revenues to pay their corrupt officials.

Oh and trying to sue the 15 richest football clubs on the planet because they've stopped buying into your corrupt system really doesn't have any legs.

No need to sue, just ban the clubs from domestic comps and make their players ineligible for internationals.

Yeah I can see fans queueing up to watch international football without the world's best players involved.

Most fans in this country couldn't give a toss about international football as it interferes with the league.

Completely agree, so they won't care if players from the "big" six are banned or not. The players will though.

On what grounds would they do this?

Do you think it would be considered legal in any appeals?

UEFA couldn't even ban city from competing in their flagship competition for 2 years ffs.. people should be more worried by UEFA and FIFA's reaction to this stupidity, and their gross overreach

All to protect CL / CWC revenues.

You should be embarrassed by your support for this uncompetitive, elitist idea.

They say they don't because it has become the thing to do. Viewing figures and media coverage suggests otherwise.

For 3 games, before England are knocked out because Kane, Sterling, Mount, Henderson, AWB, TAA, etc are all banned.
