The breakaway clubs are apparently shocked that literally no one is onboard with their awful idea.

I’ve made the point to multiple friends that I give two Fs about UEFA. F them, cut them out. I don’t even mind the 12 founding members getting a slice of the profits no matter what. They stuck their necks out, they deserve it. The absolute main sticking point so the guaranteed spot in the competition. It’s a joke, and it’s embarrassing. City could drop into the championship and make more money than any other team on the planet. Qualification and relegation is the soul of European football. Taking that away will destroy it.

So was it just a test of these clubs to see what they could get away with over the fans?

Real and Barca are broke. They deserve to go up in flames.

If I remember correctly, Woodward wasn’t told or consulted. It was all ownership.

I saw this on a TikTok and the text said, "USA and Mexico in the world cup finals after all the Super League players are banned."

Made me laugh... Of course people couldn't take a f*cking joke and the comments section was filled with "but, but, but, It'll never happen, the other countries will still beat them."

It's wild that the fans of these clubs were so against it. Good to see. I feel like if this happened here the fans would be all about it

I'm not even sure how something like that would look here in the states... Just an 8 team NHL?

as someone that's aware but doesn't really follow soccer, I'm disappointed that it already fell apart. Club soccer is uninteresting. The same 2 clubs tend to win championships year after year (except the EPL which is about 5 clubs) and all the best players are diluted amongst the different leagues. Putting the best teams in the same league makes the national leagues more competitive and fun and of course the ESL in and of itself would be a lot of fun to watch

weren't they planning on having 20 teams in the ESL? that's the same as the Premier League. So it'd be like taking the top teams from the SEC, Big 10, Big 12 and PAC-10 and making a 12 team conference (though notn all those leagues have 12 members). It'd be the same amount of teams
