if you through the posts, there aren't too many people saying they want to spend like City tbf
No-one opposed to the ESL is trying to make out that UEFA are the good guys though.
The core issue is corporate greed and anti competitiveness. That's an issue with UEFA / FIFA / PL any major football club. But acknowledging those issues with the game as it stands and then pushing for the ESL which is an even more more egregious example of greed and anti competitiveness isn't the answer to any sane person.
Acknowledging these issues with the game as it stands and thinking the solution to corporate greed and a lack of fairness is to make it even more greedy and unfair, is just bizarre.
None of this is about liking or sticking up for UEFA / FIFA etc. They're knobs, they just happened to be the lesser knobs on this one particular issue.
The ESL should be consigned to the dustbin of history and we desperately need real meaningful reform on the institutions in charge of the game and club ownership etc.
No-one is happy with how the game is run at the moment. Instead of patting ourselves on the back about the ESL folding let's all club together as fans and put pressure on the decision makers in the game to reform.
Papa has spoken
The media are strange, they haven’t picked up on the fact that Chelsea and City are literally beacons of everything wrong with modern football and why this came about.
The PL, FIFA and UEFA are the ones who let these assholes in without proper regulation and caps on spending / wages / agent fees. Probably because clubs like Chelsea City and PSG have been greasing their pockets.
But yeh now Chelsea are heroes lmao get a grip, was a disgrace they even went through with it in the first place. Buying themselves into the elite with a massive oversight from governing bodies then going against these governing bodies and riding their stature. Joke.
