    Hi as a big fan at the club with everything going on in football Gary Neville asking football club owners to leave due to their behaviour is he going to ask Ryan Giggs to leave Salford City FC if found guilty in Court with his behaviour I hope something gets done about this as it will be going on Twitter and Facebook if found guilty and us women will make sure we push this all the way because us women have gone through a lot over lockdown with domestic violence at its highest it’s ever been would much appreciate it if I get a email back please many thanks


    Everything about Gary summed up by “Must work harder” painting above his head. We must all work harder as fans to save the game we love.

    Gary has been fantastic but I think they should be heavily punished, lots of fans, players and manager of teams in the past have been punished by point deductions where they have done nothing wrong but their owners have ignored rules and regulations and this should be no exception no matter how big the clubs are

    It’s quite clear that the ESL was doomed from the beginning because of the anti competitiveness nature of no relegation and ring fencing income etc. but it just highlights how anti competitive the existing Champions League is already. I’m all for reforming the champions league but in the exact opposite way from how the ESL was proposed. We talk about the fairytale of the FA Cup and how amazing the unpredictability of it is. The Champions League should be the winners of each European country qualifying & knockout football all the way through. Let’s see real distribution of wealth in football.

  • Aakash Suryi

    The clubs are directly responsible for the situation they're in. It's them who've allowed player wages to sky-rocket. It's them who've allowed transfer fees to sky rocket. Most of them have no Financial Discipline or Diligence. How are players allowed to earn 300,000€\£ every week as direct Salary?!? Regardless of whether they play good or bad?!?? How?!? In what world is that ok?!? Bear in mind I'm not talking about Messi/Ronaldo/Suarez here. We as fans need to have this conversation because it's the elephant in the room. Let's consider Liverpool as an example simply because they have players who "arguably" have had the highest work-rate/output in the last 3/4 years under Klopp in terms of distance run per game and other statistics. Who in Liverpool gets paid above 250k directly as Salary? Only VvD and Salah. The rest them earn very reasonably when compared to other clubs. There was a study done on this comparing the salaries of players at different clubs. Imo, Liverpool is one of the most financially disciplined clubs in Europe. Let's put aside the fact that Jon Henry was one of the main party to initiate this ESL. The rising Players Wages and Salaries is the main underlying issue that's at heart of this ESL that nobody wants to address. Cristiano makes about 100 million because of sponsorships every year. Who decided to give Messi 500 million as a direct component of Salary?!? Who was the donkey who made this decision?!?? Now that Barca is in fukin Debt they are planning to monopolize the competition along with other Idiots. Believe me as football fans (not club fans) this is a conversation that NEEDS to be had. Players need to be paid a fixed component of Salary, and a Variable Bonus Component based on their performance output ( Goals, Saves, Clean Sheets, Assists, Pre-Assists, Chances/Opportunities Created, Key Passes, etc) This Conversation needs to be had sooner or later. Those fuking owners and executives are fuking incompetent who dress up in fancy suits. Dortmund, Liverpool, Leister, Athletico Madrid are some of the most Financially Disciplined and Well -run clubs. You don't have divas & Super-models like Neymar, Pogba, Ozil, etc. I'm not even going to address Rmadrid and Barca because they're a disaster. That Bartameo idiot gave Messi half a Billion as Direct Salary.

    I've honestly not felt so excited about coming back to engage with football after 10 plus years after loosing interest for it becoming commodified. PLEASE Gary & Jamie & everyone with a noticeable position, follow up to create a petition and other ways for us to collectivise to enable the 51% rule or at least heavy regulation on commodification of football as a start. This is a massively important moment, because it shows what can be achieved in many facets of society by just saying 'NO!' Very happy to spend time contributing where I can as many will be. Many thanks to these guys for having the balls and heart to stand up for this on live tv, keep up the good work and don't take your foot off the pedal whatever you do!!! Thank you so much!

    From what I’ve heard it was going to be a world super league, not just a European one. Whatever it was going to be it’s not going to happen. Thankfully. Closed shop football would be the end of the game. It’s all about competition. The dreams of the smaller clubs getting to the premier league, getting European football or getting promoted to the football league from the conference. Whatever it is, the super league puts an end to it. Money, money, money. I think some of it happening now was down to the pandemic. The big clubs are losing money and they thought how can we get it back?? No pandemic and I don’t think it would have been proposed.

    Carragher is right that the owners are mainly to blame, but they are the owners of the clubs and their for legally speaking "are" the club. Removing some commite seats is the same kind cheap symbolism UEFA and politicians love to use. It does suck for supporters but I think the clubs should banned atleast for one season from the Champions League/Europa League.

    I don't see on what basis clubs should be punished other than people's feelings. Besides, it'd punish the staff & players who weren't involved in this rubbish just as much, as well as exacerbate the financial conditions that lead these non-football businessmen to come up with this shambles of a plan.

    Not the end of it tho' Gary. !! They haven't worked on this for 2/3 years for it to fail at the first hurdle. Don't think City were really up for the idea from the start to be honest. Within 5/6 years don't be suprised that a Global League isn't top of the priority list for half of them at least. This would involve UAE, Japan, USA too. The EGO's at the top table of this group are on another scale....Meglomaniac's gallore. and a lot of them in financial trouble too. Not ended here.

    I think it's so disappointing about the whole project collapsing. Those poor guys who made all that effort setting it up. We all wanted this to happen deep down, as it would have been such a great exciting thrilling competition with such big teams involved. The Chelsea fans were only complaining as they knew they would finish bottom of the league each season.

    Should have let them go and reap what they sowed, it might be good for a year or two not that the owners would have cared if Manchester whoever played liverpool and their wasn't a scouse or a manc in the stadium 🤔they couldn't care less, after the interest wore off they clubs would have went under so I couldn't care less what they done because people are bored with the champions league as it is because the same teams reach the knock out stages every season, the europa league is the most interesting european competition out there every season for the last 10 years so aye something needs to happen pronto and making the champions league for the champions would be a great start because liverpool haven't won a champions league while champions of england so it's a 🇪🇺 cup not a champions cup only champions of their domestic league that have won the champions league are the real champions league winners and I can only think of b Munich and Barcelona probably real madrid aswell so when liverpool won the champions league they weren't the best team in europe and the season people thought they were the best team in europe they couldn't win the champions league. The tournament was doomed from the start because the best league in the world didn't even acknowledge the tournament and Bundesliga clubs would have benifited as much as anyone the next best league's which is debatable between la liga and the english Premiership were all for it and the next best league also debatable between French leugua 1 and seria A only the italians and psg were interested so without the teams from the best league interested it would have only been english la liga and seria A and the amount of people that support they teams are minuet compared to the rest of the clubs and supporters

    • mad harry the maniac
      mad harry the maniac

      Morale of the story all the clubs who entered it would be in the bottom tier of their domestic league's in 10years when it inevitably failed and the owners would have walk away when the league peaked which could have been 2 years 5 years or 10years but it would ultimately have failed and no disrespect to arsenal or spurs Leicester or Chelsea but rangers have more trophies and more domestic supporters than all they clubs combined so all the big clubs like the Munichs dortmunds benficas portos oldfirm and so on could have produced a tournament aired the games on the same time as the breakaway teams and the breakaway teams would have been playing in the b league of football with the other European teams taking most of the revenue because of the bigger audience's so wasn't a well thought through plan from billionaires who are supposed to be clever 🤔not jews or lucky lol

    Continuous growth is not sustainable!! Some of the things raised by those clubs like TV money shrinking, massive debts, wages/transfer fees are huge issues for the game... but the solution has to be the fans in control!
