This must be what it felt like when the Romanovs fell.

People purring over high profile fixtures between big teams, well that excitement will wear off fast. That's what was great about the Champions League. Great teams from different countries competing against eachother but it was a novelty. You didn't see it often.

If you are out of the title race with a large number games to go it will be immensely boring as you dont have to worry about relegation or worry about attaining a European spot in the table.

Well, I honestly have no interest in watching a SuperLeague like that one. Can't see myself buying a cable or stream package or something for this. What makes CL playoffs so good is the high stakes and they mean so much because it's the very end of a long journey for every club.

I don't agree with the idea that it would be nice to see Milan x big spanish or UK club every week because what make those games good and interesting is exactly that they're not ordinary.

The owners want a closed league in the mold of the American sports where they can put caps in spending and wages, control the salaries and transfer fees and make the clubs profitable (or at least not so much in the red). But there was a reason in first place I picked a sport with open champoships and not this kind of league...


It's specially shameful for Milan cause we can't even reach CL for half a decade and now would get an undeserved place in this. But that's doesn't mean shit anymore, we're way past that point.

This is my view as well. If you look at Serie A/EPL this season, the top 4 race is the biggest interest as there isn't much of a title race. With Super Liga, this is pretty much gone. It makes Atalanta Juventus 1-0 result irrelevant.

Similarly, no interest in CL draws, etc. and playing the same teams each year wouldn't be as interesting.

I don?t think it?s at that point anymore with guys like Agnelli and others dropping out of roles. It?s happening.

Good luck kicking the competition off in 3 months, this is way bigger than the world cup. Organizing, funding and actual logistics takes way more time than what we think.

It's easier for uefa to change as a system than this competition to kick off.

Imo there will be a major reform, bigger clubs will be heard now and it's not up to some guy from Slovenia calling a guy from Qatar for money.

This is a tug of war that has been around for soke years now and they want Bein network out and whoever running the show in uefa as well...

Anyway I find football where workers (players & staff) get paid what they deserve and its not like some business where there is one rich owner/CEO getting all the money. I think football does not work like rich monopoly companies in general.
How do you think the notion of a super league full of super teams came to be?

Do you think Atalanta and Leicester could form super leagues on their own with teams that overachieve?

What they deserve... is that built over the last 5 seasons or 50?

This Super League thing sounds like shit
The world is becoming less meritocratic and more of a corporatocracy every fucking day.

Personally I'm not a fan for a few reasons:
- not based on merit. If the 15 clubs are founding members, it's irrelevant if they finish 2nd or 16th in their league. This will lead to more boring league games where teams have nothing to play for as top 4 is irrelevant.
- what is it based on? Why are Totenham and Arsenal there? Ajax deserves it more than most of those teams if history is taken into account.
- Rest of this season seems irrelevant from a top 4 perspective. If the Super League starts from next season, getting top 4 is irrelevant which takes away the exciting of the upcoming games.
you would think that PSG going to the Final... it was based on merit??? not on Qatari gas money?

you would think those EPL teams buying anyone they want (ie Fofana going to Leicester instead of AC Milan) was full of merit for Leicester.

give me a break....

I?m sure all the logistics of it has been discussed & planned. There’s been talk of this for a few years now. Now Agnelli?s visit to Casa Milan a month or so ago makes sense.

That Chiffon from Slovenia is corrupt. I truly don't like that guy. He gives us a hard time with FFP. While his Qatari club could buy Neymar and Mbappe....

I am fine with the current system as long as the club is the permanent member whether we finish top 4 or not.

They could probably run the Super League for a year if the deadlock still happens. It's almost zero sum game. The clubs lose a lot of money since the lockdown. UEFA doesn't want to give up power.
