    No chance in hell that the ESL gets off the ground. Biggest PR blunder since Deepwater Horizon.

    If interest for being in attendance drops to a problematic point, but TV revenue increases massively the fairly obvious solution would be to drop the ticket cost.

    For the majority of clubs, for these games, I don't think attendance will be a real problem. There will be fans lost, but those in charge won't care as long as revenue goes up.

    Forums are, by their nature, more long form than most social media (if this even counts as social media).

    That tends to bring with it people who are at the more thinky (official term) end of the scale than most others.

    The PR is a mess because it was not supposed to be launched on Sunday.
    The Sunday Times got wind of it and news of it leaked.
    So an announcement was rushed Sunday night.

    20 mins on this on radio four, first headline on their news.
    Does make me wonder what is really happening in the world that they don't want us to know about.
    John Barnes made some good points.

    Do you think? Even if doesn't go ahead in the current guise, this is definitely the start of a massive shift to a new way football is structured. Bigger than when the PL was formed

    I told them we already got one
    What good is an ESL if I can't moan about being beaten by Brighton/Wolves/Brentford in the cup etc. and find solace among my fellow Glory-Glory members. It is just not the same being beaten by Real/Barca/Inter.....

    That's already the case. As soon as it became clear that FFP couldn't work, we entered into a tiered system where we were on the wrong side. Nothing's changed except for the side we're on.

    In relation to the teams that always beat us to everything, our position remains unchanged.

    Totally irrelevant post. Pep has nothing to with the finances of Emirates Marketing Project. It speaks volumes that both Pep and Klopp are using such strong words and opposes this idea.

    It seems the managers and players weren’t consulted.

    If they’re not on board then it’s a very hard sell.

    Especially if there’s a real threat of ESL players being barred from playing for their national teams.

    Other clubs getting fudged is a massive reason why I'm totally against Derp They're not fudging collateral, they have fans and histories and all the other brick which make them just as important as us

    I doubt that there are many problems with the ESL that haven’t been pre thought out, so far there have been no surprises!

    PSG's Nasser Al-Khelaifi claimed the breakaway is only 'driven by self-interest'. Has to be one of my favorite quotes.;)

    Whenever anything bad has happened to us, the rest of the football world has just pointed and laughed, fudge em.

    I guess that's how popular the PL will be in a post-ESL world.
