  • New Futbol league

    This looked like it was inevitable though nobody seems to like it. Maybe the Red Sox do (Liverpool)?

        Follow the money. Greed is good. Fans will adjust.

          Terrible idea, will be a disaster. Need to ban overseas owners of clubs.

            It definitely will be a mess....as Lineker says it makes the domestic season pointless...

            I don't see overseas owners being banned....

                Going forward, as the ESL say, it may be more useful in this context to understand the word "solidarity" as an expression for "lining one's own pockets".

                    So, essentially, this is the Kool Kidz in high school, who will deign to go to classes with the Uncool Kids, but just want to hang out amongst themselves for lunch and open periods.
                    If you're not in the clique, don't bother tryna hang wid us.

                      If this happens, I really hope it fails spectacularly. European-based clubs selling out the fans of their countries for non-European money.

                        The intense negative reaction from everyone makes me sceptical it will fly....it might more be a ploy against the stupid planned expansion of the Champions League.

                          I guarantee close observers of this will be the commissioners of the Power 5 conferences, who would love to join up and leave the NCAA

                            Just because higher-talent leagues (in all sports) tend to drive out the lessers, I don't see how it can fail. (well, unless its success depends on my watching that is :-)

                              The EFL and FIFA will most likely ban the players and teams. I just don't see it happening.
