Prem clubs will have to ratify it. 14 votes needed. How will that go?

The biggest problem by a mile is that you don't have to qualify for it. It's a ridiculous concept driven purely by a desire to ringfence funding. They don't give two tosses about the fans, so hopefully the fans will vote with their feet

It is pretty dumb that for example Arsenal who are having a terrible season just get a place in this ‘elite’ competition regardless

Not true whatsoever. These clubs don't need permission from the others to leave if they so wish to.

I don't agree with this new league and certainly don't want it but my understanding is the clubs can walk away if they want to and that's that.

An extra 20 games a season is absolutely brutal on the players and guaranteed qualification for wealthy sides is blatantly and ridiculously unsporting

It won't run in tandem though, as almost every league and governing body involved has decried it. FIFA saying they will bar participating players from international tournaments last time it was raised. Leagues saying that the domestic leagues and cups would be off the table for those clubs.

It would be doomed to failure. Hopefully any club who participates is forced to work their way back up from the bottom when it inevitably collapses

Same ‘founding’ teams every year, removes so much competitive element from the PL to chase European spots. Keeps the rich rich and everyone else poor. It’s sporting elitism in the extreme.

It’s against the PL rules, so sanctions could and should be imposed. Other clubs won’t ratify it either. Surely the ‘six’ must realise this, which makes it a sabre rattling exercise to get the current CL modified? This would suit Levy, as qualification would be more achievable without excessive investment. All the rewards with half the work.

No good can come of this, just an ugly mess.

18 to 20 games to reach a quarter final instead of 8 to 10. How are they going to fit that in?

The clubs will withdraw from the Fa and league cups I imagine.

What are the benefits of doing well in this caanty league if it's a non competition? Can you just play your reserves knowing you can't lose anyway?

By withdrawing from the domestic cups for a start, which is a kick in the bollox to the football league and non league.

I imagine the clubs will ditch domestic trophies in the process.

It's a very long statement when they could have just said 'we can earn more money elsewhere'.

Brutal?

Its football. There are sports where they are actual brutal schedules, and physicality. Football isnt one of them.

Teams will just rotate players a bit more.

And the financial benefits for Arsenal being in the competition are massive. And they just get in every season just because. A club actually performing well domestically misses out just because. It’s just to blatant a play at manipulating the very essence of the game just to make elite clubs guaranteed to make a lot of money.

Go look at how many different teams have won the champions league in the last 15 years. The elite clubs already dominate.

It’s completely pointless and an absolute disgrace. From a Spurs perspective, if this were to go ahead, it will be added to the other long list of embarrassing situations this club finds itself in. Spurs have zero chance of achieving nothing in this super league. We would bottom of the pile every single season, so what is the f** point ? The point, is to line that bald bas*** Levy and saggy balls Joe’s pockets as per usual. Completely makes the whole devalues the premier league and any competition in trying to reach a European place has just completely eradicated because of this. Shameful it really is.

Wow! This year is turning out worse than last year.

Just as Covid starts to die down they go and kill football dead.
