  • They want to control it all, not just the money. If successful, in 10/20 years time new generations of supporters will only have the choice of the big clubs to support, the small local clubs will be finished by then. This in turn will increase global support for the few in the Super League. Furthermore once you have a small Super League with only a dozen or so managers and few thousand players it's much easier to control and fix. I believe we have match fixing in the game already, but in a league like this it would be much more easy to fix. In their franchise systems in USA I have no doubt they know in advance who is going to win the Superbowl. With so much money in sport these days and so much money at stake these billionaires don't like leaving things to chance.

  • As a Sky Sports employee, Gary's hardly Mother Theresa. He and his mates at Sky lost the moral high ground when it comes to supporting ordinary fans years ago. Those greedy club owners Gary is so concerned about, Sky's business model enables them to divert money from hard-working fans straight into their bank accounts

  • So glad Martyn mentioned Burnley saving themselves from demotion to the Conference. That gap between Step 4 and 5 (League 2 and National League) was the last closed-off part of the pyramid to be removed. It was removed because it didn't feel right with progressive clubs in the Conference wanting to replace total disaster-zones of clubs in the old Division 4.

While in the meantime this country plunges deeper into a police state and the vast majority of it's brainwashed citizens simply comply, either due to complete and utter ignorance to what is really going on world wide or by choosing to bury their heads deep in the sand & watch football as it is all just way too much for them to handle..

  • I hope the Super League does not happen, but football was and is a business. It is a business which the fans care about a lot, but it is still a business and if it wants to survive it must remain a business. One can blame the owners as much as one likes, however if ever comes a time when the big clubs go bust their fans would be praying some businessman takes over their clubs and saves them from relegation or worse. If these owners were to leave tomorrow very few would want to buy and invest in a football club. The kind of owner a club have is very important. My team Liverpool was going almost bust before the current owners. Chelsea and City were winning close to nothing before being taken over by foreign billionaires. Tottenham would find it hard to find a buyer if the current owners decided to quit. Milan have been a shadow of themselves ever since Berlusconi left and Inter have struggled for 10 years since Moratti left. Barcelona and Real Madrid have many debts too and if it wasn't an ego trip very few billionaires would invest in them to make money. Nobody has become a billionaire by investing in football, they were billionaires before investing and some might become 'just' millionaires.

  • I like Gary Neville - he’s a pundit I enjoy listening to - but there’s a level of hypocrisy here. Man Utd have got history of disrespecting British football in chasing the dollar, and he was involved. Remember United withdrew from the FA Cup in 1999-2000 to participate in the World Club Championship? The only holders not to defend the FA Cup. And Gary Neville was involved... they shat on the oldest cup competition in football without a second thought, and diluted the importance and reputation of the competition in the process. So ‘the selfishness’ is not new and shouldn’t be surprising.

  • Why is it such a crazy idea to make UCL (or whatever the heck you want to call it) be the majority of a big clubs schedule and the domestic league take up a smaller % of the schedule. Essentially reducing the size of each domestic league, get rid of your cup competitions and make it a playoff system with a domestic champioship game. The UCL can be larger, more matches amongst bigger clubs and therefore making it tougher to win...more rewarding. Just a thought. Need to generate more money. Stop pretending this isnt ALSO (key word) a business. Stop being so dramatic and stubborn. Change is inevitable. Its coming. Embrace it.

  • Whatever team you support- you surely can't not respect Gary's pure passion for the game, and what it means to the fans. I've watched Leicester for 40 years. I was at Bromsgrove in the wind and rain when we were fighting to get back into the Championship. I went to a pre-season game once that had to be stopped because a dog ran on the pitch. 4 years later I'm at a pre-season game againt Inter Milan. How dare these fat cat foreigners try to deny me the right to watch my team play the cream of Europe next season in the most prestigeous sporting league in the world. (Hopefully- I've not just jinxed it!) We already HAVE a ESL it's called the Champions League, and you have to EARN your place in it! How can Kronke think that Arsenal can finish mid table, and then f*** off and join an elite, closed shop consortium- Disgraceful! I don't think the clubs should be docked points tho. It's not the managers, players, or fans fault- so whoever wins the most points should get their rewards- BUT FINE THESE OWNERS MASSIVELY- and distribute the money to teams and loyal chairmen down the leagues, who are in trouble now due to the economy. Gary Neville for PM!!!!

In fact, i will encourage everyone to never support any of the teams that sign up. They think they can abandon the entire structure of football and fair competition just because they decided to whore themselves out for more money when just about everyone at the level already has more than they could ever spend living a decent life. Regardless of what they do, they've already lost major home support from the average person that pays for their lifestyle. Greedy scumbags.

It got NOTHING to do with greed.. the reason why its amid the pandemic is EXACTLY because of the pandemic and very little income to keep the club afloat. Super league would help the big clubs to stay within their finances goals. People are so stupid they dont understand this. When Man Utd and other big clubs run out of money and cant afford any good players, they you will wonder what went wrong and complain.. fing dumb people
