Yes definitely thinking of pulling out because of 1 or more of the following reasons.

1. we had a gun to our head and were forced to sign up
2. we weren't given enough time to read the documents, panicked and signed anyway
3. we were unaware entering a competition that you don't need to qualify for and gatekeep others out of is actually anti-competitive
4. despite making the decision to not post the Super League statement on any of our social media outlets we were unaware that the backlash would be severe.

The hierarchy of our club are not greedy like the other 11 they just misunderstood the situation.
I think you give our owners way too much credit

It wasn’t particularly UEFA who didn’t want us, it was UEFA facilitating the exact people we’re jumping into bed with who didn’t want us. The Cartel have always been the core and the shysters in the background, with their men in the boardroom at UEFA, Gill Parry Agnielli Beltran (the “Piss Flap Brigade” as Liam Gallagher called them), all part of the Cartel.

They are the exact same clubs who we are getting involved with here.

It’s not like we’re starting a new European league with Chelsea Leicester Malaga Zenit CeltaVigo Lazio and Coventry and calling it the European Super Blues League... we are going in with the exact clubs who didn’t want us with UEFA. and do remember that we were not part of the organisation of this, we were approached at the 11th hour about it, don’t have a single representative on the board, and there’s already talk that the funds are going to favour a small handful of the core clubs in this and not be shared evenly!
We were invited as the 6th english club to ensure the remaining PL clubs couldn’t get a 75% majority to vote us out.

Once this is up and running we will be cut loose and find ourselves without a league to play in, without a club anymore

We’re going to lose Pep over this. He is a proven man of honour.

Great work City. Great fucking work.

I hate to burst the optimists bubble here, but there is only 1 cunning plan by our owner.... that is to take us into this ESL and make shit loads of free money by destroying our sport.
There is no 2nd thoughts, or 11th hour coup de'tat happening to take our breath away, to bring back our admiration for the MCFC suits.
This kind of development ONLY gets announced when folk are 100% behind it. Checked all the ups and down sides, had the bean counters work shit out and run it by all the main movers and shakers. Even will have squared it with the sponsors.

No, we are fucked, fuck, fucked!!!
Come back in a week.

I wonder how many here supported if Netherlands, Poland, Belgium etc leagues would make noise about changing the format to make sure they have 2 guaranteed CL spot in group stage of 32 for the expense of 4 UK, 4 French, 4 Italian etc.

Or probably their lobby power is so low we would just laugh it out...

I’d absolutely love to believe all that.

You might as well just condense this by saying City are run by gormless idiots.

Do you really think City are run by gormless idiots?
