Like Liverpool weren't one of the ringleaders in all this.

I see Klopp was butthurt about the t-shirts AND Gary Neville making digs at that song.
By lashing out at others for daring to criticise the Super League idea, I reckon Klopp knew more about the whole thing than he's letting on. A couple of months ago when he was asked about it, he totally shut the whole topic down. I'm not saying he's totally in favour of it but he would've had to be living on another planet for the past 12 months or more not to know that the people he works for were one of the main drivers of the plan and I wouldn't be surprised if that scrawny-necked **** of an owner of theirs openly discussed it with him, whereas the managers of the other clubs were kept in the dark by their employers.

Liverpool
United and arsenal fans have always hated their owners, they know they are leeches. Liverpools owners are exactly the same yet the scousers have routinely ignored it. They've put money into Liverpool not because they want to win things but because it was needed to get them to a level where they can print enough money for themselves every year like the glazers.

It showed the last 2 summers when they failed to back their manager despite the biggest revenues in the world that year.

These are the owners that immediately furloughed staff,

these are the owners that tried charging the highest ticket prices in the league and forced their supporters to protest,

these are the owners that tried to trademark the word Liverpool ffs. They tried to legally own the name of their club and their city yet these fans have continued to pretend their owners are great.

Its going to be really interesting to see their reaction to this apology. I suspect they'll all go back to ignoring the signs whilst Klopp has them doing well then a few years down the line when they continue to siphon money from the club they'll realise their mistake
I cannot agree more with what you say.

It has taken this nasty power and money grab attempt to open so many peoples eyes. I know I have been guilty of just thinking everything was rosy. It is the small changes that get through that you dont notice that just start to snowball. The Arsenal and Man U fans have had it for years and grown weary of the constant chipping away at their club by the owners. The constant taking money out of the club with nothing really to show for it.

That slow awful slide to just being a "franchise club" or just a small part of a bigger empire that is really just a marketing and money making tool. You could level that charge at City, but there is that big difference, the fact that your owner doesnt just take out. He invests, in the club and the community. He sees the bigger picture and knows he will benefit more from building the club rather than just getting it to a level and then take take take.

Oh the joys of a global economy. I guess we have to accept some change but this ESL crap was just too much.

Sadly I can only see the greed monster coming back soon enough, The like of Perez & Agnelli will push the idea again but with slight tweaks to try and solve the issues that they faced this time. They will then sadly again be supported by the American business models who will then try and draw in others that they consider will boost (that horrible thing) "the brand", Those others coming on board for fear of missing out.

the bin dippers injury to VVD cost them any chance in the league and no amount of help from the officials would help them this season so they have all back united
Thank you, Pickfordsaurus.

Being serious for a bit, and I do mean this, I do actually feel some sympathy for genuine Liverpool fans, as in the ones who go the game (easier said than done these days, I know season tickets are like gold dust) and have been supporting them from day 1. I'm sure plenty of them are as fucked off about it as my Chelsea-supporting relatives or the City fans here.

Ourselves and Chelsea were there to make up the numbers. Once signed up with no way out that lot on the board would have royally stitched us up so we didn't have a cat in hell's chance of competing in Europe or domestically with them, just like the old days.

I bet a few of them don’t know the offside rule (im looking at the yanks). That just shows you how fucked up this proposed league was. I despise every name on that list. Perez needs sectioning.

A quote from RAWK when this was all first mooted in October-the first few pages are interesting with most thinking it's a good idea.

"
Yeah, fuck it, I would normally be against something like this but I'd relish the chance of playing the best teams of Europe - teams who actually want to play football, not just cause injuries. It should be invite-only as well.

Keep the PL, restrict the CL to anyone not a founder member of this Euro League (and teams invited to it). Seems fair to me.

I don't care if it ruins football in this country. For too long, teams have been used purely as political pawns by the government and the FA and UEFA. The PL started because the EFL weren't letting top teams get a fair proportion of what they earned, and the same is happening again in the PL. The Top 6 clubs massively subsidise the other teams, provide solidarity payments and huge parachute payments for lower leagues, and it still isn't good enough."

At least he's honest as well as deluded!!
... proudly displaying the socialist principles that they're famous for...

It’s very obvious from all this nonsense which fans have seen there team play in lower regions of the football league and which haven’t.

Wasn't these the fuckers who tried to bring us down when they was on the Uefa board?
And they are all gone now?
2 plus 2 equals 4.
