Arsenal did everything they could to become a sustainable superpower
This is a good one. So many Arsenal fans are against this, the very same fans who complain year after year why Kroenke doesn't put more money into the club.
There you go, Kroenke bringing in more money! How come fans don't want it now? You can't have your pride and more money at the same time, right? Money can come in from oil/crime connected to it, or super commercial competition, both ways are wrong, not sure how can anyone pick one over the other, but looks like fans still manage to do so

Better still would be Kroenke not deemed a fit and proper person to own us. Give him back his initial stake plus eight percent statutory interest and ban him and his heirs from owning any UK club for 500 years.
That is the way to go

The fit and proper check done properly would be effective

Far too simple an idea though, sadly

At the end of the day they’re all thinking about themselves. The breakaway clubs are thinking about the money they can earn, the broadcasters are thinking about the money they will lose, the clubs not invited are thinking about the money they will lose.

Reading the last few pages have highlighted why some posters are notoriously disagreeable.

Can the mods take @Highbury_2006 title and give it to @HairSprayGooners? The lad has outdone himself saying that the proposed SL is better than the CL.

He’s ignoring the biggest elephant in the room, that is that you qualify for the champions league based on merit. Your participation is based on how well you do. This new SL removes that element and also removes the accountability of the founding clubs who will be in a league that has no relegation. Further to that by being in the SL if they manage to stay in their respective leagues they will distort the competition of those leagues.

For example Arsenal has a squad of 44. However due to competing interests the SL squad has to be 22 players who can’t be registered in the PL. This then forces the big six to play a weaker team in the PL thus distorting the competition.

However some people think it is a great idea because it will stick it to Uefa or FIFA. The ignorance on display is numbing, to think that there are so many shortsighted people who can’t see a scam is astonishing.

Of course teams will want to join, insane money involved for covid crippled teams. At and the end of the day it is the bigger teams who have suffered the most during covid. Bigger club = bigger revenue but also bigger running costs, no revenue, no ticket sales = further to fall and easier to get into trouble. Smaller teams, not so much.

You clearly haven't read about or don't understand the concept. There's no relegation because there's currently no second league, the founding teams are just the start. Where are you going to relegate these teams to exactly? There's two leagues of 10, and then play offs etc to reach the final. In the coming years two leagues will be made, it can be developed.

I didn't say it was better, I said it was basically the same but you're getting rid of the minnows from Hungary and such.

@Kav


If we were back in the day when the football league was created and you had the first founders, do you think they immediately said look the top 4 will get into a special competition, three teams will be relegated to... well, nowhere and then 3 invisible teams will take their place from nowhere.

No. Just because that's what we're used to doesn't mean it can't happen over time with this. People are so insanely narrow minded.

How insane would two leagues of 20 be? A huge European league, completely replacing the CL and EL, it would be fantastic. There's a bigger picture to this that people with 0 grey matter will never understand. Hence why these billionaires are doing this, they see the bigger picture, hence why they're billionaires.

Are you that dense as to why they’re the biggest clubs in the world you absolute shambles of a poster?
Why are you wasting your time arguing with a stone hedge? Not even enough mortar to make a wall. Climb over the sucker and leave him behind.
