    I heard an interview with the Barcelona president (or whoever) on a bbc football podcast and he alluded to big clubs across Europe agreeing to a new format of European competition that’ll be played over the weekends. He sounded convinced that it’s going to happen pretty soon. 16 or 18 team league.

    Apparently the premier league clubs who are involved already know their involved but are scared of announcing anything. Whether that means that the likes of real, Barca, Munich, Milan etc have already told their supporters or not I don’t know.

    Either way it seems highly likely that city playing on a Saturday night, 8pm kick off against another big boy of European football will become the norm.

    How will that affect the traditional support?

    We will play the league game at 3, and fans will stay on for the night match.

    Well as someone who has been a regular match goer since 1962-63 season I would stop going if we were part of this European league. I also reckon that after the initial surge of enthusiasm people would soon get bored of it too.

    Feel sorry for the younger generations who are football fans. At least we've seen the good and bad and had the joy of standing on the Kippax. If this Euro Bollocks League kicks off then it's game over for football. Why do they (the administrators) think this is what the fans want?
