Is the Proposal of a European Super League a Good or Bad Thing?

In the News

It has been reported today that the big 6 in the premier league have agreed to join a breakaway league with different teams from Italy ,spain and England .I am so in the camp of condemnation of this and really do not think any punishment should be taken off the table to these clubs but I would like other peoples views.

I'm a Liverpool fan and I don't think it's the right thing to do.

The Germans and the French are out, so what's the point?

All to do with money and I think it's a disgrace.

All financially motivated. If this actually occurs, it will have a massive impact on teams lower in the league.

Uefa have said they will "remain united" in trying to stop the breakaway, using both judicial and sporting measures if required.

They also reiterated Fifa's stance that players taking part in the Super League would be banned from all other competitions at domestic, European or world level and could be prevented from representing their national teams.

Its a disgrace! It will make the Premier league boring and pointless as the so called top 6 get automatically entered into the competition regards of there performance. 5 teams have the chance to join the league out all the leagues in Europe depending on the there domestic success so no other English teams probably wont ever get into ESL.

Sadly it will just lead to a series of "exhibition " matches with players just taking part for the money .

I'm not into football myself but from as an external viewer of the industry I see how they keep ramping up how much money they extract from their fans to ridiculous levels and this seems to take this to a higher level again. No doubt tv companies bidding for it will be expected to pay huge sums which means costs for viewers are hugely increased. It just shows how dedicated football fans are that they accept this rather than just walk away. Basically football fans are seen as complete morons happy to pay over huge sums to support their teams and so its easy money for the clubs.

If football fans just walked away for a year spending nothing on football they could destroy this extreme commercialisation of their sport and take it back to its roots. Ultimately the fans have the power to control the sport but they just can't walk away it seems even temporarily.

It's going to be interesting to see how this plays out. Things will likely get a bit messy over the next few months. How many fans could afford and have enough free time to regularly travel to matches being held in mainland Europe. Tickets for matches are likely going to be expensive.

I'm with everyone else. I think it's an absolute disgrace and another nail in the coffin of the beautiful game. I'm waiting for someone from the clubs involved to stick their head above the parapet and attempt to justify this move.

Unfortunately no one employed by the clubs in question will give their opinion . Like Tuchel this morning " Not our job to have an opinion on Sports politics or speak for the fans " .

To the clubs it's all about money and that means TV money in the main . Global fans can sit in their armchairs in New York , Beijing or wherever to pay to watch the matches .

Of course Europeans will also see a hike in their TV subs to pay for the whole scam .

For those of us who have been lifelong fans of our team it is probably too difficult to abandon our loyalty , but perhaps parents could encourage their kids to support a local team at a lower level ? So they won't end up slaves to their loyalty in future years as some of us have become .

I'm trying to understand it all but finding it tricky to grasp what it's all about.

All I know is LFC the players and Klopp are against it.

This quick u-turn is very embarrassing for all the clubs involved. They have somewhat damaged their reputation. The people at the top of these clubs should have done a lot more research or at least gage the views of fans before agreeing to form a super league.

We still need to see some appropriate punishment for these teams. I think a points deduction around about the 20/30 mark and a European ban next season
