It's over for the super league.
"it's good, check EuroLeague and EuroCup."
all true, but seems like they're pulling out, to me it's bizarre that there's no clauses to avoid this
it is bad because there is no competition in this tournament.
As a non-football maniac who just watches Europe Cups and World Cups i dont give a damn about this.
"They will still compete in their respective national league" what u mean by that?
Chelsea is out, man city is out, utd is out, at madrid, barcelona and liverpool most likely out, Juventus is out.
Its over for superleague
Disband UEFA and their "no to racism" policy shit.
You want to go viral this week, talk about The Super League lol
Both Super League and UEFA are obviously in it for the money. UEFA managed to portray themselves as the good guys even though they're not. Many fans are being manipulated as most sports channels are defending UEFA, saying that they're trying to protect football but in actual fact they're just money grabbers and they want to protect their pockets. If the Super League is established, UEFA would lose lots of money and therefore they're trying their best to stop it from happening. Not that I support the idea of the Super League as it harms smaller clubs but UEFA are just a bunch of hypocrites.
Bro, it's about the chance for the smaller teams to become big. It's impossible to invite Arsenal, and not Ajax. Imagine Leicester won the PL and they would not qualify for SuperLeague if it was invented at that moment. We need to see the matches when a smaller team beat a better one. We need underdogs in big tournaments. You are not a football fan, you are just a score/winning fan.
I don't think you quite understand the problem with the league
Let's just point out the fact that Arsenal and Tottanham 2 painfully mediocre Premier league teams HAVE A GUARANTEED SPOT. And 3 more are said to be added. Ehhhh who??? Bayern, Dortmund and PSG already confirmed that they rejected the offer. So what like.... Benfica? Sevilla? Roma? etc. GUARANTEED SPOTS. As far as we know it's not possible to remove the teams. Ok but what about in like 10 years, will Man City still be good? What about Atletico madrid or perhaps chelsea? Will they still be good?
The fact you consider the Basketball system in the EU to be good is a meme. It's actually awful only meant to benefit the richest clubs... wait a second that reminds me a lot of a certain new Football league. This league literally only exists to guarantee that the biggest clubs will keep being the biggest clubs and that there will be no competition.
You say that "The playoffs of CL looks like the Super League xD" as a critique of CL but really it's more a critique of he Super league. Why does it need to exist? The underdog story is infinetely more interesting then watching bayern win the bundesliga for the 9th time.
Also some of your points are possibly not true.
UEFA already threatened that the players will be unabale to play WC and EC/SC. They talk of the possibility of kicking the current 3 teams (In the super league deal) still left in CL and adding in the losers.
its dead, city and chelsea already left, other clubs are next
look at all these players protesting against this stupid league, who would actually financially benefit from this. shows how shit it is
already irrelevant post... super league is already doomed. the teams are already leaving super league.
Delete thread, superleague is gone, bye bye
bayern and psg are the heroes in this story
I just read about the league system for EuroLeague and EuroCup, it's fascinating how similar it is to ESL, and it worked simply because they reached agreement with FIBA. Also The two tier system looks fine to me, increased amount of Big club matches yet with a chance for an underdog story.
The difference is that UEFA holds all the cards now and the Financial incentive is just so strong for them to give up or even negotiate, i might be ignorant, but to my knowledge the FIBA european cup wasn't even that lucrative back in the day so reaching agreement was probably way easier.
One thing the super league absolutely did wrong was understating and didn't create enough financial incentive for smaller teams, thus leads to them side with UEFA, If they figured out how thery're going to help the smaller clubs to progress and maintain their position in the game better than UEFA currently are (The super league money was rumoured to be 5Billion a year which is almost twice the Champions league), i'm sure they can find a way to compensate the Big dogs good enough whilst giving the smaller teams a better proposal than UEFA.
Anyways, i'm excited to see what ESL will come up with next, the current ESL plan it's just dog shit and delusional thinking only 12 clubs and with no other FA's backing will work, But the idea does seem FANTASTIC to me.
Because i'm tired of seeing Absolute dog shits teams in Champions league to go out in group stage with 0 points, don't get me wrong, Incredible domestic teams should get a chance to play in Europe, but such a huge skill gap should not exist, Europa league was created for that exact purpose, it's still European football but the playing field is fair and more enjoyable to watch than some cyprus(sry any cyprus fans this is just an example cause your country is beautiful so it's the first thing came into my head) team finishing 4th almost everytime in UCL groups
Lastly, it WILL be cancelled.
The first fact:
IT'S DEAD, EAT THIS PEREZ AND AGNELLI
was kinda looking forward to it but some people in power dont want the best competition
I feel like this league was just created as a bait for UEFA to wake up and realize they need to change. Its just impossible to fathom how such a league with the most prestige clubs in the work, back by a huge sum of money from JP Morgan, can self-destroy after 48 hours. The only reason is because it was never meant to come true probably.
+1 i could not hate the people more who are crying about superleague at social media because the uefa told them so, at least have an argument. In the end I think its good its cancelled as it would become quite borin seeing the same 15 clubs play eachother all the time, this would also take away the hype from the "best" games in terms of teams.
