Of course they will. I wonder how the promotion and relegation from this league would work.From what I’m reading this will be replacing the Champions League.
Clubs will still compete domestically but the CL will become an 18 team league competition.
FIFA are desperate to get the big clubs away from UEFA.
American owners who, 10 years ago, could write what they knew about OUR game on the back of their hand, trying to muscle in and reshape OUR game to reflect their own “NFL” model.
I know this has been floating around for a number of years (without American input), but it irritates me, this whole “Americans” know best routine.
Wasn’t it the pompous Jerry Jones, Dallas Cowboys owner, who tried to reassure English football that Hicks and Gillette knew what they were doing?
We know how that turned out.
Stick to your side of the water...
This is about the champions League talk UEFA are meeting about surely. The club's don't like it
12 clubs, which means there 6 English clubs who are supposedly voting for this. United, City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs, Barca, Real and Atletico from Spain along with the Milan clubs and Juventus. So, United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Spurs, Atletico and the Italian clubs want to create a new breakaway system with no financial regulation that only City, Chelsea, Barca or Real will ever win? A complete disgrace for all the reasons Neville mentioned, but from a competitive standpoint, like turkeys voting for Christmas.
It's brinksmanship, nothing more. Wind yer necks in!
Nothing yet, second thoughts after all the negative press? Does that prove the power of UEFA and FIFA, is that healthy?9:30pm announcement.
First off, the ownership groups of City, Chelsea, Barca and Real want no part of profit sharing. Second, that’s exactly my point about competitive imbalance. The Glazers would love nothing more than to turn us into the Bucs. Don’t forget they had to be forced to spend the league minimum on salaries for years, and had no interest in being competitive until they lucked into Brady. Shoot me now if this happens.It will have massive regulation this will be an NFL style cartel clubs all tied together sharing more equally in the profits they generate.
There will be salary caps, I’m guessing a new transfer system based on trades rather than fees and much more control for owners over players.
Utd will make a lot more money from this kind of structure than the current structure more money/power concentrated in the hands of fewer clubs.
