    I wrote something similar a while ago it is certainly win-win for them , although they may sustain some reputational and fiduciary damage along the way if we go for them.
    A new super league within Europe , maybe, but we have eyes for a wider audience it could play into our hands as well.

    Ifs and buts .....

    What relationship have we ever had off the field with United, Livarpool and Arsenal? They've all been bitter ****s ever since we put them in a box.

    How much affect is the corona virus going to have on these 8 clubs who wrote the letter? I am assuming the relaxed ffp rules is for their benefit? Such a joke that the clubs that apparently abide by it are totally unable to cope through a crisis, yet the one club who is supposedly cheating easily could, it’s out and out hypocrisy.

    just hope we don’t just take this all on the chin, city have been far to nice in the past. Time to hammer these fools

    An Italian-owned pizza house near me has a signed Italian language poster of Carry on Cleo on the wall. Barrie is definitely one of the signatures.
    Sure sign of a classy establishment.

    All this is correct. Any matchgoers would say Liverpool were amongst the most violent fans in the country at the time along with Chelsea, Leeds, and United. But, just like now, there was a media myth perpetuated about the so-called "sporting Kop" and suggestions that somehow their fans were "more knowledgeable" about the game. They were just as bad as United fans but, to be fair, United's hooligan fans were lambasted by the press. Liverpool got a free pass (until Heysel anyway)
    I was in the Kop paddock (keeping my head down) when Joe Corrigan was felled by a bottle. Most of their fans cheered and laughed but afterwards on TV and in the press the narrative was all about the sporting Liverpool fans pointing out the culprit to police. It was bollocks of course, just part of the ongoing myth.

    It's not a source at UEFA though (unless I missed something), it's a 'senior football source' which could well be the journalists dad for all we know.

    Absolute muppets, some have signed up to never getting a sniff due to the cartel, hope their fans are happy. My bet is that sneaky Wenger is playing a big part as his beloved Arsenal are so mediocre and need big investment (just as he did with Ozil and the 2 x strikers at circa £150 million plus others of course) and the only way they can do that again is by circumnavigating legitimate 'rules' the UEFA/established cartel way. Arsenal virtually guaranteed a top 4 place due to being able to get in and for so long their claim to success particularly when Wenger had to try and organise their defence. Amazing how transfers were accepted as part of the game until City came along...…

    It's the Scouse Tony Evans again, just writing a commentary after the reports of the eight letters. Nothing more, and a quote from an unnamed 'senior football source'. That might just be someone who's very old!

    It's a non-story to stir trouble.

    Sadly it's a small club and we all have to play together nicely (at least on the surface).

    No puns intended.
