At some point or another, the major football clubs around Europe have to come to terms with the fact that enough is enough. Uefa may be holding everything together, but why would anyone want to be associated with and even governed by an inconsistent, incoherent organisation such as this? As the days go by, a European super league starts to look ever more enticing.

It should be a matter of principle, a matter of taking action against a governing body who pretty much turned their back on another matter of racism. When does it become enough? At which point do you stop looking at the figures—the one which saw Nicklas Bendtner fined more than Serbia—and think that football doesn’t need a backwards, pathetic mob of out of date men who are only wearing a mask of togetherness and a united football community. Their hollow words of zero tolerance against racism have become more of a back hand to the face than anything that promises swift and ruthless punishment.

Uefa’s lack of action and continued persistence to sweep the matter under the carpet simply says racism is ok. It’s their duty to protect those who fall under their umbrella of authority, and yet they’d rather hand out punishments and fines to those who challenge their significant lack of credibility.


A European super league shouldn’t just be about their sporting side of the game, it should be about all the problems that have been dragged along over the decades and have yet failed to be properly addressed. Uefa need the biggest football clubs in Europe far more than the clubs need them. It only takes a larger number than just a quiet minority to speak up and make strides towards something far more acceptable. Football at this stage is completely unacceptable.

The game needs updating in the form of video technology, but the powers that be try to convince others that it will do more wrong than good; the problem now is that a fair few have caught onto this ridiculous notion and are championing a lack of technology in games. They say it’s too expensive, or something equally nonsensical. They try to purvey the idea that big spending on innovations that would improve the game is unnecessary.

Uefa line their pockets and continue to walk down the golden halls of purity without a care in the world. Uefa officials will never be on the frontlines, they’ll never have to deal with the dark and hideous side of the game. There comes a time when those who are powerful around Europe have to take the fight to this backwards manner of running the game.

Who stands to lose out from a proposed European super league? If it is put together rationally and with a sensible approach there can be many benefits. You naturally create tiers that allow smaller clubs to grow and perhaps find themselves in a position to move up and down the scale.

There is little sense in the idea that leagues without big names would crumble. All it would do is allow for much stronger competition right across the board. There would of course still be a Premier League, but instead of fighting tooth and nail to come within arms reach of qualifying for Europe’s secondary competition, other clubs would have genuine and realistic chances at the league title.

Hasn’t there long been an idea that the Championship is the most competitive league in England? The performances of teams over the years would suggest as much, so why not take that idea and raise it to England’s elite level?

But the ins and outs of such an idea do not matter at this point. Uefa currently feel untouchable and hold a position whereby they can convince themselves that what they do is the right method.

Revolution shouldn’t be cast aside because it enforces change. Issues such as revenue would come into question, but I see little point in arguing that all other football would cease to exist if a breakaway league came into being.

    It will never happen, for example Man Utd finish 1st or 2nd almost guaranteed in the EPL whereas they may only finish 5th in a Euro super league… they won’t get 76000 fans for being 5th.. other teams will fare worse (imagine Arsenal ending up 12th)..

    What makes you think the big clubs would have better moral values than UEFA. Self interest and money are the only values these clubs have. As for allowing smaller clubs the chance to progress, i think you’ll find the ladder pulled away immediately. Financial fair play is only supported by the existing big clubs so that smaller clubs cannot compete with them.

    who are the big clubs at present we have, man u., man city, chelsea and arsenal, surely liverpool cannot now be counted as a big club 18 seasons since they won the premiership and slowly but surely getting worse every year, teams like liverpool and maybe probably arsenal cannot live on their past forever, city have no history but i assume their money will be welcomed to

    euro super league would last ten years max attendances would dwindle with no local derbies fans would get bored atmosphere would go attendances would be rubbish for mid table lower league games with nothing to play for.
