There are several board members at the six breakaway clubs who are opposed to joining the new league but they feel they do not have the power to stop it.
The owners of the clubs involved were fully expecting a backlash to the super league plans but were 'not worried' about bad PR. “Our primary job is to maximise our revenues and profits. The wider good of the game is a secondary concern.”
It's also been suggested that the club owners would be 'secretly delighted' at the prospect of players not being able to play in international fixtures and if the clubs were to remain in the Premier League then the clubs would focus on midweek Super League games as a priority.

  • it would be so funny if the real case was not the football super league, but pushing certain laws under its cover to centralize power around private business. Depends of what regulations they would propose i would be really worried and looking out for everything that as usual will aim for more than just the case it was proposed for.

  • I think we should let them go because then the actual teams that spend reasonable amount of money And have decent talent actually get a shot at winning the Premier League and it takes the money concept out of football and brings it back to football actual love of the game that’s just my opinion

  • There are 2 potential outcomes if this Super League happens. 1- ESL gains fame and support, local leagues lose money phase out. Football slowly dies in these countries and eventually Super League dies. 2- Super League member clubs lose fans, players prefer to play in local leagues and national teams. Super League loses ratings. Nobody watches them and they collapse financially. I don't see any positive outcome of a Super League.

  • Should've been a Super League. The biggest and best 36 teams globally having worldwide viewership which would be a boon for that team,league and country. No other time would a top Euro team play a top South American team for example. Maradona's storied Boca Juniors against Liverpool or Juventus v a top JLeague team. Other countries would get stronger in the sport. No relegation means that smaller,lower placed clubs(in any league or sport)can benefit from TV revenue to sign better players to compete in their respective playoffs/tourneys. It'll happen in the next 5 yrs though. It's too attractive to pass up. And no,I'm not "plastic". I love my team,and the sport. I just think it would make teams more competitive on a global scale outside of Europe besides a World Cup "group stage" and a Champions League which is again,ONLY European.

  • One of the commentators made a great point, when these big teams play each other often, it won't be as special. As a Yank, I think the PL should have a salary cap to spread the wealth. The NFL divides the TV money equally so small market teams can compete equally with NY, LA etc.Pittsburgh is a small city yet the Steelers always contend because of better management

  • 1. Not having their players play in the World Cup and Euro Cup is beyond short-sided. It’s free advertising and their exploits in the WC are far more long-lasting than any normal league title . 2. All those teams are dead to me. I won’t be buying any of their jerseys. 3. All those big fish in one league won’t work. Some of these teams will become bottom dwellers. They can’t all win the Super League every year. You think Barcelona or PSG fans could handle going 5 straight years without even a top 3 finish. It will happen to them or AC Milan or ... How will the fans of Super Teams feel when they become road kill? Again, these fans bases are use to domination. It’s no longer possible in a 12 team league.

  • Kicking these clubs out of the league right now is not the correct option, the season should finish so we have an established winner other wise you penalise the fans which is wrong. Do not stop the players representing their country IF SELECTED which they wont be. What will stop all the nonsense will be the players them selves by handing in transfer requests and the will of the fans, HOW EVER THE FA FIFA AND ALL THE REST ARE ONLY CONCERNED AS THEY WILL LOOSE THEIR REVENUE

Literally SELLING OUT our closest friends ... The Great people of the UK by legalizing Footballs prostitution for the benefit of a few investors. This goes well beyond simply purchasing & ripping the hearts out of an American Football fan base which these scum are used to. This is ripping out the soul of England itself. All if these pieces of "For Profit Trash" will end up Greatly regretting this Larceny attempt. They have stirred up a Hornets nest Greater in size & verocity than they could have EVER imagined.
