Perez says the project is 'on standby' and that they all signed binding contracts so they can't back out - so there! He will send his mum round their houses, scream until he is sick and stamp his feet if he can't have his Super League.

What a cunt that bloke is, he has insulted every other team and supporter by saying that nobody wants to watch teams that are not in his League because they are 'boring'. He has come out with some total bollocks about how the SL will make football more accessible to younger fans - yeah right, adding yet another streaming service that they will have to pay for will do that!

Obviously all of us feel the same way about the SL as fans. But putting the morality issue aside, one of the things that's really becoming clear is how incredibly stupid and thrown-together the whole thing was. They've been talking about this shit for YEARS, and they come out with something like this? Like they hadn't even considered that PSG, Bayern, and some others might have reasons not to be committed to it? Or that there might actually be opposition to it from their own fans?

It reminds me of the quote about the Watergate scandal over here in the States from the movie All the Presidents Men: "Forget the myths the media's created about the White House. The truth is, these are not very bright guys, and things got out of hand." Martin Jol actually said something similar to that about football in a story I read not long ago. At the highest level, football is run by a bunch of fuckwits with inherited wealth who seem to have no idea what they're doing.

Everywhere I look people, businesses, football clubs, football fans and anyone else who has an opinion... is giving it all they can to rip the piss out of the cubs who wanted to sign up to this Eropean Selfish league.

Now I support them and to be honest I'd be doing the exact same and there's not a part of me that can defend a single iota of it...

But we, the fans are suffering the brunt of it... with the club, the owners, the chairman not having to navigate the new world they have dropped us in from a fucking great height... Not a statement from the club, not a statement from Levy or Lewis or anyone associated with the club other than they have decided to no longer be part of the misguided venture due to the backlash from other teams.

The fans weren't the reason they ditched it... Euefa, the Prem and the Government threatening to ban teams and players from established competitions was the key to the withdrawal... but we're still getting it full tilt from all angles...!!!

I support THFC...

I do not support Levy
I do not support Lewis
I do not support Enic
I do not support the European Super League

They have to go now... all of the above have to go.

For me to feel how I did in order for me to have fell in love with THFC.... none of the above can remain.

It's a start, but there's no way Uncle Joe wasn't consulted beforehand.

The president of La Liga, Javier Tebas said:

“This isn’t a problem of revenue, these clubs need to reduce their expenses. We don’t need to keep increasing earnings so that players can have seven Ferraris instead of six. This is a problem of distribution. My position is very clear, we don’t need to increase revenues, we just need to manage expenses. We are not ruined financially and we don’t have to take any exceptional measures.”

Nailed it Javier my old mate.
