    Gary took a cheap swipe at lfc with the you'll never walk alone dig.... saying that's what they are suppose to stand for.... and yes we do stand for that.... the fans and the true supporters of the club... you should know better than to think that the owners of your club are true fans... they are businessman and only care about money....

    I think Neville and Carragher need to look at the wider picture. here . Yes we are all shocked by the ESL and the timing of the announcement left a lot to be desired . However the real villains are once again UEFA they are the greedy ones because the expanding UCL is nothing more than a money grab .They don't care about anything else . They care nothing for the welfare of the players who now play three games a week on a regular basis . They threaten clubs like mafia Dons about FFP and so forth but they are all about greed themselves . There are other problems with the game but the ESL is about the governance of the game by the probably corrupt UEFA . Remember Platini remember Blatter we have seen it before .

And the European Championships and African Cup of Nations 24 teams?! Almost half of Europe and Africa! They say the ESL was about greed and $$$. Well so are these new formats of 3 of the biggest competitions! Complete garbage and low quality and high quantity. Yes it doesn't affect the 'football pyramid' but it's not even exclusively the best of the best. It's half the continent and a quarter of the world...all to make more money.

Now the foreigners are making a push to destroy our number one sport. The reasons are simple,Money Money Money Money Money. Foreigners buying up our football clubs without a care for the struggles of the lower league clubs. The lower league clubs will start to fold the implosion of the supporting pyramid of the game will take the entire game abroad. It's laughable to hear the fat cat players and the pundits complaining about something that they are and were responsible for. Greedy crisp muching self opinionated tax dodgers take note. Well if the game goes abroad maybe you greedy buggers will go with it and we will be able to start again with a new slate.

They still run football they still now have the prem lge in their pockets. Still telling prem who can and can't OWN football clubs..... The so called fit and proper test to own a football club stinks. The only ones who have invested properly in their area have been man city... Pumping money into the football club and its surrounding area. OK they do it for the end product to take on these big clubs that's why we see the likes of Leicester City knocking on door of the top 4..... Theyve done what man city have done and because of the PIF wanting to do the same they close the door.... Not the PREM LGE. so now we see the truth.... These top6 don't like the likes of west ham Leicester City closing the gap. These owners of the big 6, don't like anyone closing the gap so they want to shaft the fans, no no they want to destroy the other clubs in the process. Now when the PIF come back and want to buy Newcastle United and show the money and plans for investment in the area are the prem lge going to now say yes after these big 6 tried to shaft them, we will see. OK like the owners of the big 6 they want a return for their investment. Will the prem lge now see these top 6 for the true ownership that they obviously are. Will the prem lge now allow a takeover from the PIF or will they see it as another would be owner wanting to buy a club for their own larger scale money making machine. Corrupt as they are the big 6 still have the prem lge AND eufa in their pockets.....

    After what happened it is concluded that 90% of football fans don’t know what the f is going on and jumping on the “save football” bandwagon. Of course, football is saved because UEFA are still in control and in 2024 West Ham can be the 4th in the table yet teams like Man United, Chelsea and Spurs who have a high coefficient will qualify to the UCL instead of other teams who have a low coefficient. Don’t bring the greedy argument to the table because UEFA, FIFA and these broadcasters “SKY” are much worse. Thank you Perez for showing the truth of how UEFA and FIFA work with their lust for money by making nonsense competitions “Nations league” which cause further injuries and exhaustion on players whilst keeping the majority of money for themselves and giving breadcrumbs to teams that bring all that money.

    these clubs maybe institutions before but they are basically business news and it has become cutthroat since the advent of investment from these billionaires and heads of states. The PSG owner didn’t join because for him the main goal is not to run these clubs based on the income that the club creates. He is for sportswashing and now he is the Eca chairman. Don’t forget when rm bought those players with a world record fee they had in mind that the players would make a big selling point but now the price point at which Newmarket was brought there is no way they are ever gonna make money on that. So yes the end of football was when money started flowing. So in. A way it never ended it’s just started. Fifa is basically going to rule over some African country as a dictater as they would not be able to pay the World Cup money promised. Middle East oil money and Chinese billionaires are going to take the pieces of European football one by one. Uefa are still gonna milk great big clubs With excuses to distribute money to smaller clubs but actually just making their pool with billions and billions of dollars.Gary Neville and such other retiree’s are going to rant about how that’s end of football and how that’s end of football."
