I can see what Pep was doing keeping things for final close to his chest. Just think we missed a chance today. Chavs now have an opportunity to rest players, if we beat them they would have had to play at full strength to guarantee top 4.
In reality with ONE midfielder we should have beat...
They have 12 teams, anyone else invited already knows the outcry coming. How do they invite 5 teams each year from Europe as their leagues will be so against it. I see them changing it and inviting teams like RiverPlate etc making teams trek around the planet.
It’s not a closed shop it’s similar to now but with a few places with criteria to put in say Rags if finishing outside top 4. Still stinks of looking after top clubs who are shit but global but not a closed shop
The timing of this is unbelievable, due to pandemic people have got used to not going to games. This gives lots of people an easy reason to stop going. Be interesting as season ticket applications probably due soon. I’m torn but if my close friends stop going so will I. Had st for (6 years.
Once the ESL starts then it will give RM and Rags the freedom to adapt everything to suit themselves you will end up with an ESL being won by a couple of teams. Arse, Spurs and others fans will be sick of finishing bottom half.
I for one will not watch the ESL IT stands against everything that sport is about, rewarding performance. Stops the dreams that we had 10 years ago for other supporters. If this was 30 years ago half the clubs would be different. Just GREED
