Other than Chelsea, as I like them. They're sound. 

 

I'm just wondering why the big 6 bottled it though? Gareth Bale's agent was on Radio Wales earlier saying he'd leave either Madrid or Spurs to keep playing for Wales at international level, but that's just Gareth Bale who's always made it clear he'd lose money to play for Wales. 

 

Or have the biggest clubs learned that no one particularly likes even the champions league these days so to make a more incestuous and insular version is bollocks? 

 

Or did they think Uefa would blink first? 

 

Or, for a change, have the ticket buying crowds finally won one?

Swiss model was rubber stamped on Monday according to the Guardian. So it was all posturing anyway. Bloated Champions League that means nothing until the semis and teams like Ajax still not guaranteed entry to group stage. 

 

European football is fucking abhorrent

It'll never happen, but the 6 teams should be docked a healthy amount of points I reckon.

Yup. Have them start on something like -15 or -20 next season and fine them heftily, too. 

People have been relegated/kicked out of leagues for less.

I think this is a missed opportunity to move football forward.

Perez was exaggerating - I don't think it's true that young people are no longer interested in football, that's a generalisation. But I think there's enough evidence to suggest that attention spans, driven by the internet mainly, are dropping and a game that lasts the best part of two hours is a challenge for kids that are brought up enjoying watching stuff in bite sizes.

There's been total short-sightedness about all this. All this talk about "Oh, if there's no relegation then don't matches become meaningless for some teams after a while?" Doesn't seem to be much of an issue in the MLB, NBA or NHL. They play dozens of games a year, many of which are technically meaningless, yet they are still well supported and watched. Again, it's that typically arrogant British mentality - 'our way' is always the right way.

The Champions League needs to be torn up and started again. Adding extra teams to it means nothing. It will still be heavily swayed towards proposed Super League sides as it is. This was an opportunity to do that and UEFA should have made a point of sitting down and discussing it rather than threatening players for being members of clubs that just happened to agree to this. This is going to happen at some stage and I rather think it *has* to happen.

As for Chelsea and City with the claims that they tagged along because they didn't want to be left behind, pathetic. They're being painted as heroes by some because they were the first to fuck it off but they're arguably the worst of the bunch. Talking like they were handcuffed to the other 10 and held at knifepoint rather than doing what the German clubs did and not agreeing to do with it. They're absolutely gutless. At least the other clubs were clear about their intentions.

This is only time you will mobilise the Chelsea fanbase ... a lot of lads in Stone Island had their own mini Brexit last night. 

A true victory for real football and those great champions of the working man, Sky TV, Gary Neville and UEFA. Let's get back to extortionate subscriptions charges, inflated match tickets and Winter World Cups in Qatar post haste!

Hell no. Do it now and make it 30 so the North London love-in is a relegation scrap.
