Breaking- Premier league re structure


Recommended Posts

The amount of money swilling around in the PL is obscene as it is, yet they want more. TBH I would be more than happy for the so called Big 6, though only five have allegedly been approached, to leave the PL and the cups. It's not like they don't get enough European competition as it is, is it? Sheer greed. The game is losing contact with its roots IMO. Do fans really want this?

Sadly it sounds like they will expect to be still allowed in domestic football ffs. 

 

It's basically the Champions League except you don't need to qualify and it keeps all the 'lesser' clubs out.

 

******** vermin.

I hope so...f.ook off and lets have football back


Absolutely. If we ever get to the Prem, as it stands the best we can hope for one season finishing 6th beating a couple of the big boys. Then other teams will sign our best players and every season after it’ll be a lottery where we finish, 8th - 20th every season until we go down. 
 

Let the traditional ‘Top 6’ bugger off and we can actually get promoted to a league we’d have a chance of competing in.

They are welcome to do it for me as long as it means they are completely excluded from all forms of domestic competition.  Let the Chinese and Arabs have their TV football and we can start the process of getting our domestic game back.

I don't think this proposal means they'd be leaving the Premier League, it would be a replacement for the current Champions League, where the top clubs could earn way more than they currently do in the UEFA CL, and they'd play in the "European Premier League" in the mid week European slot. 

 

Basically they'd be getting what they wanted with "project big picture".... Way more money than the likes of Leicester who have threatened their league dominance 

 

If you listen from about 2:50 of this video, that's what he is suggesting it is...

Very disappointed it appears to mean they won't break away from the Prem, otherwise it's just a revamped version of the Champions League

 

Basically yeah, but the money available is apparently way more than the current UEFA CL

They'll probably field a B squad for some PL matches, as they do at present in cup matches. This in turn will lead them to buying up even more players to use in their squads which will ultimately widen the gulf between them and the rest of the PL. No doubt support from the PL clubs will be bought off by the equivalent of solidarity payments.

Yep, they'll treat the prem as their cup competition essentially, and rest their best players for the "European Premier League" 

 

Football is a pile of shiit, if it weren't for Wednesday I wouldn't give it 1 sec of my time anymore.

Yet another gerrymandering plot to strengthen the "select few" and prevent any newcomers spoiling the party.

 

The Champions League used to be for the champions of each affiliated country until the "big six" realised that clubs like Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest beat them to it by qualifying for Europe instead. So they changed the rules, not to give the Norwichs or Leicesters a chance but to make sure that most of the big six had a better chance to qualify


I'd be happy if the clubs that are pushing this, namely Liverpool and Man Utd, broke away and formed their own Elite League... They could then play each other every week for the "Super-Duper World Series Cup" for all I care.

It would make a refreshing change if those in charge of the clubs currently at the top of the game would spend a bit of time coming up with a plan to help protect the future of those lower league clubs currently struggling for their very survival thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, rather than plotting yet more ways to solidify their already iron-cast strangle hold on the game.

So it's essentially champions league but with just the same teams every year and no need to qualify through their domestic leagues?

 

Yeah...seems like a belting idea.

So they want a virtually closed shop Prem...and now a totally closed shop European "Champions" league???

Owt else....?

"Guaranteed home wins"?

"2 Penalties per week clause"

"No Oppo slide tackling in the week leading up to a European fixture"?

 

Absolute joke!

There will be no incentive to 'try' in the Premiership.  They would automatically qualify for Europe every year even if they got relegated. 

 

This move should only be allowed if they agree to sever their ties to domestic football completely.
