Firstly, full credit to Bayern, Dortmund and PSG for rejecting it.

As I understand it, the PSG president is involved with beIN Sports, who have some sort of Champions League TV rights deal. It's within his financial interest for the CL not to be undermined. I imagine PSG would be on board if this wasn't the case.

a closed of league would be just plain stupid where is the loss/rewards structure outside of money?
the idea of an european club structure is that once in a while the small fry can come up big see ajax/atalanta

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Hate this superleague thing, it's just one of those shitty friendly cups played in pre season with steroids. Hope they get kicked out of everything

Besides, what are Tottenham or Arsenal even doing there? I can say that about a lot of clubs on the "super" league that would be bashed by Sevilla



What exactly is stopping the federations and UEFA from banning these teams from their domestic leagues and UEFA competitions? Officials are whining a lot but not doing much, and there's only been talks to suspend SL teams to play at UEFA level. What's also official is that players who dare to play won't be able to represent their countries either.

Who knows what might convince the SL teams' executives that this backlash is not worth it, though.



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first.

You never walk alone... you go together with 11 others.



Tottenham looks like a sparrow among eagles in this league. City and Chelsea are pigeons if you want.

Seems like all 12 clubs officially left the European Clubs Association too, which... uhh, I don't know how serious that is, but it sounds bad? They all seem totally committed to this despite the overwhelming backlash from fans, pundits, and even their own managers and players. Seems increasingly likely that we'll really have a Super League happening between these teams next season (wonder if any other teams would actually join this clusterfuck), with the usual European tournaments proceeding as normal but without those clubs involved.

But hey, I don't care. I've been a Wolves fan all my life

They obviously expected such a strong backlash, it's the first phase before the negotiations between the 12 clubs and UEFA. I don't buy for a second this is going to go through. Perhaps something like the Super League is going to supplant the Champions League as the main UEFA club competition, and by that I mean this new tournament would make extremely easy for the founders to qualify, it wouldn't be like the Champions League where your position in the table in a single season is all that matters. 

If it happens, well, I'll be damned.
