    As an Arsenal fan I think it's a terrible idea and it would probably end my lifetime love affair for us if we whored our club to the European super League.

    For the other 14 teams in the Premiership and aspiring Championship teans it could be brilliant. Clubs are pushing themselves to the limit financially to try to get into and then stay in the Premiership, it's all going to end in tears. In the long term it could help football as a whole, sure money would drop but so would wages and transfer fees. Domestic Football could get back closer to how it was before Sky ruined it.

    if they get 5 teams from england there and they get their 20 years guarantee of not being relegated. They will stop caring for the league and focus on this money train. The PL will become like league cup where no big team cares for it. The tv deals for the league will go down a lot and all the money will go to that league. I also think shortly after we will see these team play across America and Asia. If Americans get their way, football will change a lot real quick

    Totally agree the short term hit for the Premiership and English football in general would be huge, long term though maybe it is what it needs. The disparity between the big 6 and the rest is far too big, especially in wages. The amount of teams who are stretching themselves to the very limit financially is a huge worry, it's a bubble waiting to burst and maybe this is the pin. Football feels on the verge of collapse and something needs to change soon.

    Let the big boys globe trot around the World playing in front of the highest bidder and let England get on with building a sustainable football league for the other 87 league clubs.

    By the looks of it though, with the exception of the founders the likes of us would still need to qualify for the Super League by finishing top 4 so might not be able to play a B team. Presumably they might increase the squad numbers or those in easier leagues (e.g. Bayern/La Liga) will probably have an advantage as they could get away with putting out a B team, I don't think anyone in the premier league could.

    It just isn't possible though. Between the Premier League, European League, FA Cup (which I assume will be kept) and Internationals you are looking at around 90 games a season, closer to a 100 in World Cup/Euro/ Copa/AFCON years.

    If this happens Im out. Everyone who doesn’t agree with this money driven madness should join me.

    I’ll start following a lower league side, football is unrecognisable since I started supporting the Arsenal. Top level football is soulless.
