Thread: European Super League imminent?

  1. #261

    Re: European Super League imminent?

    I would have thought the clubs will use their own TV channels alongside a streaming platform called SuperLeague TV as the model they are looking to use follows US Sports as this is all about securing as much money as possible.

Whilst 'real' fans are hugely outnumbered by plastics across the World, they're the ones that are up close to the club, it's employees, along with local and national media. All told a damaging exercise for these clubs' images, and a telling sign just how little these owners understand the concept of following and supporting your team. The awful thing is we're now going to have to put up with all those conciliatory, fawning statements from the 'big six'...

    The more the story has gathered pace over the past 48hrs, the more I personally think it won't amount to anything. I've been glued to the media in fascination and its just getting farcical now.
    There's no way they can proceed with it and i'll bet the clubs executives are having internal shit your pants meetings discussing how they can get out of it showing face and minimising embarrassment.

    it'll be interesting to see what happens next, will they keep pushing for it, or try to extract some kind of concession from uefa to make it go away.
    if it is defeated then the punishments need to be severe and stricter laws brought in to prevent it from happening again

    The fact that helping shut it down would be an easy PR win for Boris doesn't bode well for the idea either

    I think it's looking less likely, I think the clubs involved are going to be ****ed.

    Wouldn't UEFA be in the stronger position though if the clubs back down? There usual threat for concessions would be gone because they've bottled it and future threats wouldn't be taken as seriously?

    Wouldn’t those contracts be under Premier League conditions? Perhaps they’d be null and void if the goalposts were moved

    Why do you describe it as “bottling it”
    Do you not think it’s a good thing they are reconsidering?

    I would say they’ve seen sense.
    Well done on those fans peacefully protesting outside the ground.

    They made a decision and not completed it because the backlash from all corners has been stronger than they expected, they're not doing this out of any reasons for the good of football or anything. They got cold feet and are scrambling. In my view they've bottled it.

    Are you that naive, that you think they didn’t realise what the general reaction would be ?

    Good, rumours are Chelsea and Man City were reluctant to join in the first place

    Punish them for what?
    If Chelsea and the other 5 were to pull out, then what would they be punished for.
    That would be like the fuzz arresting someone, just for thinking about throwing a brick through a jewellers window 😂
