Defunct European Franchise League and other stupid ideas


Recommended Posts

 

Watch Liverpool and Man U fans try to claim credit for saving the football league. “It would never have happened if we didn’t try to seize power.”

 

Have a few questions like. 

 

Why did this go to a vote?  There was a leak to the papers about secret talks going back 3 years a few days ago and today all PL clubs actually voted on it.  Seems weird.

 

The 2/6/whatever clubs that were proposing this must have expected it to get rejected, was it therefore simply an initial bargaining position?

 

The talk of a "prompt strategy review" worries me, I don't want to see anyone bending to any of their whims whatsoever.

If I’m one of the 14 other Premier League clubs I’d be asking why we should bail out the EFL now when they were quite happy to go behind our back and sell us out. They weren’t even getting anything for doing so, they were just getting an advance on their income and would ultimately put themselves in a bad position when further down the line those big clubs decided they no longer wanted to share any money with them.

 

I’d also be looking at the EFL themselves asking what the fuck they have done to help themselves. For too long now they have been overspending without any inclination to stop it. They have seen clubs go bust, other clubs in secrete financial disaster, they even had to be bailed out years ago when the ITV deal collapsed. They have learnt nothing and have been far too happy to plead poverty and out the begging bowl out.

It would be easier to help them out if you though that it would result in some reform, but it won’t.

They’ll just come back with another shit self benefitting proposal that isn’t quite as bad and hope to bargain that down so that they get what they want.

 

The other clubs should try and use this as a way to introduce protection and penalties against this secretive, power grabbing, opportunist behaviour happening again.

 

The top clubs have shown their hand; it’ll not go away.

I reckon the other clubs have said we have the power to outvote you and out you in a worse situation unless you keep yourselves in check.

They have possibly even threatened with more severe consequences, hence why even Liverpool and Man Utd haven’t even voted for the proposals.

Superb stuff from the John Henry and Glazer to not even bother to turn up to the vote, instead sending their minions in their place.

 

How strange, that despite being so passionate about the proposal and the English football pyramid, their public stance can't be put forward  :lol:

 

Such figures can clearly to be trusted with greater power over the game

They've totally misjudged English football culture here. That is the only explanation I can think of for this shitshow.

they don't give two shits about football culture anywhere let alone english football culture, they're American venture capitalists they just care about money and are annoyed the have to share with "little" teams instead of just taking it all and everybody else should just be grateful for the exposure

Yep, I dont think they expected this reaction from the fans, hence why they've rejected their own proposal.

This is nothing to be celebrated. Those backing this idea knew full well this would be rejected - it is all part of their plan and strategy.

Other than leave the league or create their own league where could they go with this? At the end of the day they need the votes of the other 14 to get any traction on any of their own ideas.
