    I think it’s up to the premier league clubs, and luckily most premier league clubs are going to refuse. What would clubs like Fulham or Aston Villa gain by giving away money to lower leagues?

    I hope we’re classy and refuse or veto.

    The FA has a 'Golden share' which is some sort of veto power to vote down any decision by the PL clubs, I think.

    10 PL clubs on board, don't they need 14 to ratify the vote? Wonder what it would take to convince the others.

    Which 10 clubs would support this? The "big 6" +?

    I imagine the 9 untouchable (the 9 longest serving PL clubs would be)+ an additional club are those on board.

    That's true and Liverpool, Man Utd and Arsenal were and still are the three biggest clubs in the land

    I think its a disgrace tbh, the fa should sell wembley and help the clubs out. This will ruin English football.

    There are teams like Sp**s and Everton that have always been there or there abouts but they aren't "Big clubs" in any sense of the word. There's only ever traditionally been three big hitters in the top flight.

    The money mobsters have taken over. Its reality tv now. No wonder there was such massive push to get Wenger out. He would have stopped this **** right away.

    It’s an evil capitalist venture designed to give more power to the elite. Such capitalist proposals which satisfy the few rather than the many should always be put down.

    This is as opportunistic as it gets. I wonder how long this has been in the pipeline? The pandemic and the promise of saving the EFL has then provided the necessary environment to show their hand.

    This is predatory from the big 6, and due to desperation from the EFL, it might get pushed through.

    Do not support this at all.

    It all seems like a reaction to Covid-19, all based on handouts and loss of revenue and being bailed out by the top clubs, it may seem attractive now buy it seems like the idea is being floated as clubs are currently in trouble and will want the cash injection.

    If Covid-19 never happened this idea would read so differently.

    However, things like a relegation/promotion play off seem great.

    Others just seem strange, a summer PL tournament every 5 yrs.. why? Whats the point in having a friendly tournament in the break of the real thing.

    It's not the "Big 6 that have proposed this, it's Liverpool and United.

    This is a blatant power grab by Liverpool and United which they've attempted to present as" Philanthropy" - JW Henry and the Glazers couldn't give to ****s about what happens to any of these lower league clubs.

    Just glanced over it, but wouldn't this just pave the way forbig clubs to force the European super league down our throats?

    Less EPL games, more European games. Nah. Not really down for this.

    We suffer enough with the EL games already.

    The ESL would be better than the EL though. No Qarabags, BATE Borisovs or Vorskla Poltavas in there.
