See this c**t is still not giving it up, even going so far as blaming the failure on the fury of certain people who don't want to lose their 'priveleges', with privelege in this instance being fair and open competition. 

You couldn't mark this old b*****d's neck with a blowtorch for him to claim others are exercising privelege in this case.

Things must be bad. I see they’ve roped in Raith Rovers third biggest fan to provide a (somewhat ironic) greed counter argument.

Mind you, if he's right and the clubs have signed a legally binding agreement, things could get interesting. JP Morgan will have very expensive lawyers

I wondered whether it would be leading to a death of any home vs. away format as we know it too, cant mind if it was on the back of a fag packet press release (that iirc wasnt actually letterheaded either!) but i do remember something about there eventually being at least quarter finals onwards in the ESL at some point. I could see the aim being for World Cup/Euros style bidding to be host nations for the latter knockout stage format that actually matters with the earlier regular season matches held at each clubs stadium.

So broadly it'd mean a massive change to how season tickets etc. work and are priced since you're all of a sudden needing to think about accommodation and flights based on how your team performs, which would be nigh on impossible to predict in reasonable time.

Legacy fans and their season ticket/matchday interests < potential revenue from getting pissing contests on the go from nations to host the """product""", basically.

There were reports In Italy & France a couple of days ago of this being brought in for the CL semi's soon (2022/23). Despite it being agreed upon by pretty much everyone, it seems like there's very few people who genuinely like the planned new format for 2024/25 and changes could be made to it soon.

2 clubs will qualify through historic performances, but it's already been suggested this week that there will be pushback on that from some of the mid level leagues to try to get another 2 direct champion entries.

Is giving more champions more direct places without any counter measures definitely a positive?

If there's no changes to the EL and conf. group stages money, or the solidarity payments for teams who go out in qualifiers/don't get into Europe at all, what will the domestic leagues across Europe end up looking like?
Dinamo Zagreb, Olympiacos, Slavia Prague, Young Boys, Salzburg, Ajax etc. winning every season?

Things are already going downhill this decade and some of the most fucked up "financial redistribution measures" have only been in place a handful of seasons.

Barcelona, Real Madrid & Juventus look like they might take this further in the courts. Presumably to set a legal precedent for any further attempts 10-15 years down the road.
The nine others have agreed to be reintegrated back into UEFA after signing a "really sorry about that whole super league thing" document.
Barcelona may well officially pull out if the members vote is still going ahead.
Juve and Real Madrid have dug their heels in pretty hard and are considering trying to recoup money from the other clubs according to the NYT.
Stronger punishment likely coming for those three teams.

bump.

So is it still a dead duck or are those 3 just trying to wriggle out of Uefa hammering them/desperately trying to keep it alive? The statement from the three seems unequivocal that the court ruling went in favour of the ESL clubs, but haven't seen anything else on it tbh.

I'm pretty sure it's a ploy by the three biggest shitebag clubs in world football

There's a joint statement released. https://www.juventus.com/en/news/articles/statement-from-barcelona-juventus-and-real-madrid-30-07-21

Absolutely hilarious that it bemoans insufficient financial controls when Barcelona is the poster child of mismanagement and can't even register new signings until players are sold. Get your own house in order first.

This was never going away. The possible money involved (if it gets off the ground) would be huge.  I have no doubt that some of the clubs that ran off when the shit hit the fan will be watching from the outside whilst acting like they arent interested.

It's going to be fucking hilarious when the mega-rich, lawyered up clubs get their shit together and the EPL franchises that "bowed to fan power" and came out of it slither straight back in.

Was the court in Madrid one that Uefa would have to follow or is it just Spanish team using a Spanish court to say their piece ie fc sion and their shite a few years back
