    "YANKS!" OH REALLY! I bet anybody and everybody with indigenous heritage from London to the far east to United States must be either turning over in their graves or alive and throwing up. PLAYERS/FANS: This is our game INDIGENOUS EVERYWHERE: are saying hold my beer. 🍻🍺

    hmmm 'a war against Football!'. Very unwise words from Rio Ferdinard but apart from that everything else is fairly accurate. Fairly accurate - For him too not get too carried away!

    We as the fans determine whether the teams will earn or not. Without us watching those clubs play means no ad revenue and that is the major revenue earner for any club. At the end of the day, the money they thought they would make will remain to be just a dream.

    Time for fans to start buying in to their clubs. Its the only way to ensure players voices are listened to without direct government intervention with a supporters council or similar being implemented. If enough players buy shares and form a coalition ye can have a supporters based voice in local teams.

    I really can't listen to these retired footballers, players who earned millions per year in the same system the new league is based off of, money. The premier league has destroyed English football. Look at any team now, where are the English players? and it is not as if the up and coming local lads are getting a chance to move elsewhere. Clubs should be run by pros who know what they are doing and should be owned in large part by the people who are supporting them, i.e. Fans. Sorry, rant over.

    Now is a great opportunity for the English premier league to start under a new umbrella with new morals and no money enhancements to any clubs, even budgets across every team and only skill and hard work makes the team better.

    As for PSG, it doesn't need the money from the ESL. The owners can pay more to each club, the league and are not in need of some guilt cash. I don't get why Man City would agree to that scam. They are very well loaded and can secure whoever they want, whatever they want roughly speaking.

  • Federico Alessio

    I dont like the ESL nor I want it but there are a lot of false information being mentioned here. The ESL was not planning to shut down national championship nor the UEFA‘s organized European competition. Also their business plan said that ~6.5B would be passed down to the national leagues, so that would support the grassroot movement. This is much more than anything UEFA had even imagined. Nevertheless, I hate the idea.

    C'mon BRIT-SUPER LEAGUE which could replace Carabao Cup content Big 6 EPL, 2 Glasgow Clubs, 1 FA Cup Winner & 1 SFA Cup Winner & 2 qualified clubs from both EPL & SPL (end season raises at top tables). Yeaa.

    _PURE EURO-SNOBBS!!!_ _Please don't try to call it the AMERICAN Super League that's really *F---D-UP._ _1. American owners were three/3 out of the 12._ _2. The fans/players/owners didn't riot when David Beckham bought LAFC. WHY? We are aware of the origins of SOCCER._ _The MLS doesn't like the Super League either. But it's about the fans._ _(right?????)---INCLUDING AMERICAN SOCCER _FANS (RIGHT?!!)*_. WRONG IT'S ABOUT EURO-SNOBBS!!_

    it's like if Spain, Brazil, Argentina, England, Germany, Italy and France were like, we should form our own world cup where we are the only ones who are allowed to win.

      @DonQwantsyou Croatia made it to the world cup final in 2018, they beat England + Mexico and Sweden made it to the 16th round over Germany in 2018. these are just a few examples, so they don't always win.

    Love how these people, Europeans and other internationals, chastising these owners for being greedy and ignoring what makes up the game, the game and traditions! I love it. American sports can learn from them. There is more in life than just greed.

    when i read that F. Perez (Dict- President of Madrid) is the chairman of ESL, It all makes sense. Aren't they still footing the bill for their stadium redevelopment that they had to force through?
