Making a 400m loss should result in penalties not an invite to a lucrative new league.

We wont be invited thankfully.

An anonymous board member from one of the English teams has came out and said he hopes they get thrown out of the Premier League.

I'd ban them from Europe and the the EPL for 5 years minimum

Big 6 could be looking at being chucked out from both domestic and european competitions very shortly.

Agnellis big idea that the yanks n co have jumped on to try force UEFAs hand looks to be going south very quickly.

:lol: Fucking massive if so.

Will we see a re-run of the 1980's? Big name England stars (and foreign) flocking to us?

The clubs who have signed up for this will very soon just become corporate NFL-like franchises that fly around the world playing what are effectively exhibition games in their own little super rich bubble. And if fans don’t want to pay to watch it, then that bubble is going to burst with spectacular consequences for them...

The (initial) money of course is tempting but if your club stops being about fans showing up ‘every other Saturday’ and battling your rivals then what exactly have you become?

I'd take to the streets over this. Genuinely would. Over what football is becoming generally. It's at the core of our culture and it's being raped by businessmen that often have little connection to that culture, although enabled alot of the time by local collaborators.

SPFL STATEMENT

REACTION TO EUROPEAN SUPER LEAGUE PROPOSALS

Neil Doncaster, chief executive of the SPFL, commented: “The SPFL stands alongside UEFA, the European Leagues, the English Premier League and the overwhelming majority of the game’s stakeholders in vehemently opposing the proposed European Super League.

“These proposals, or any like them, would have an enormously damaging impact on the very fabric of our sport at all levels. It is no surprise they have been so swiftly and overwhelmingly condemned by fans the world over. 

“We believe that any such ‘competition’ would dramatically undermine the global appeal of football and would be financially catastrophic for all but a very tiny minority. 

“The proposals we have seen, assembled by a small, self-selected group of very wealthy clubs, appear to be a cynical and very worrying attempt to thwart the core principle of sporting merit which rightly underpins European football.  They represent a clear and present danger to the sport we all love.

“Now, more than ever, given what we have all been through over the past year, governments, together with the game’s governing bodies and leagues, need to work together to do what is right and protect the very essence of the game.  

“The SPFL stands ready to support all efforts to fight for the principles of solidarity, sporting competition and fairness which lie at the very heart of the game.”

 

Pot fucking kettle with the stunts they've pulled lately.

Same as when Sturgeon attacked Trump:

 

"Who?"
