The ESL would stratify the Premier League even more so than the CL because of the invitation to a very lucrative competition. It would be unfair.How are City not defending the league?
City maybe good at football admin but we are completely inept at coping with politics (Liverpool spygate, UEFA FFP, and we've misread this). Should have kept out. I can see the fear of missing out on the ESL if it was a fait accompli would be enormous but they should also be able to gauge and understand the reaction and likely outcome.
