Here’s the official thread for this utter atrocity.
I hope we (Arsenal) get relegated from the European Super League. Money grabbing, soulless, thoughtless proposal.
If you’re going to do a breakaway league, at least make it compelling and interesting. Such bland, beige nonsense. I hope it doesn’t come to fruition - the universal backlash and condemnation is promising.
You hope Arsenal get relegated from it? That’s the whole point- they can’t be.
not until they expand it from a 'European' to a global leauge, make it two tier to accommodate extra teams then the top tier decides to break away to keep all the money to themselves. It's the logical endpoint of finance over football.

What's happening to football is the same as what's happening to the rest of society, and it's happening for the same reasons. Whether it's a state government or a board of CEO's, ordinary people are excluded from the decision-making processes that dominate their lives, workplaces, and communities. Maybe the Super League will be stopped. But they've already pushed through Champion's League reforms along the same lines - "elite" clubs with inherent advantages, everyone else in the mud. If you stop the Super League now, it'll be back in some form or another in the coming years, and you won't be able to stop it forever. Not unless we have fan ownership.
It's the only way to stop these things in the long-term. Taking football power away from billionaires and giving it back to the everyday, local fans who built it in the first place. Germany's 50+1 system would be a good start. Giving fan organisations the power to hire and fire members of the board, input in the key decisions, elections on issues and presidents. The Super League is when the CEO's of football played their hand too quick - they've been building up this Americanisation of football for decades, but now they've pulled the trigger. Unless we use the reaction to this to build fan ownership of the clubs, I guarantee you that it's only a matter of time before some form of Super League is introduced and football becomes an endless carousel of glitzy, glorified friendlies played for Chinese streaming services, designed to fill the pockets of untouchable clubs and billionaires.

I just came on to rant about this exact thing, it's a fuckin mess, money dominating everything, but I don't think their mistake is playing their hand too early, it's thinking they have a hand to play, nobody wants this shite, not players, not managers, not coaches, not the kit man, not the fuckin tea lady, and definitely not the fans, time for all those who give a shit about the game to stand up and be counted, time for those who don't to fuck off and find something else to fuck over, it's time to take our fuckin ball back
Would I ever leave this company? Look, I’m all about loyalty. In fact, I feel like part of what I’m being paid for here is my loyalty. But if there were somewhere else that valued loyalty more highly… I’m going wherever they value loyalty the most.
BugmenAndBoxes: I was catching up on the Matt Morgan podcast and got to the part where Noel refuses to let Matt tell the story of how Dead In The Water was written, but does mention it was written in response to thinking he could one up a song he heard... Bold?

World71R: It might be Once. That was directly aimed tied into Liam's relationship with Noel and both songs have that ballad feel to them.

moonlightdriver: Wow, Just noticed the riff at the very end of the Familiar To Millions version of Gas Panic sounds like the intro of Magic Pie (somewhere around 7 mins). Am I hallucinating or... ?
