Hypocrisy.

Whilst, like most football fans I 100% against this super league.
I also agree with a lot of what Neville says, but there is a hell of a lot of hypocrisy.

* Neville bought success at Salford and even changed the kit colour against the wish of the hard-core supporters.
* Neville earns a lot of money from a business that has helped fuel in-equality in football.

Its not as if MUFC owners have not spent money.

As I said before, I am sure clubs like Leicester, WHU or Everton would have jumped at the ESL if invited.

One important caveat.
Many Man United fans were against the Glaziers from day one; they predicted this and hence FCUM was set up.

Football fans as a rule are rarely happy with their clubs owners ( Lee Thorn anyone) but when those owners live abroad, Glazers, Kroenke’s, Henry’s, and hardly ever if at all attend games fans can’t help but feel they have no interest in the clubs they own other than to make money, the ESL fiasco only serves to reinforce this impression.

Would Coventry be good enough to play along side those elite teams?

Must admit the response of non-6 has pissed me off. I am sure if Everton or WHU or Leicester had been included they would have joined the others.

Remember - The only ones who objected to the premier league were the ones not eligible.

I really think this was all a ploy for the big clubs to be able to negotiate their own TV deals.

i would not rush to play the blame game
fans can be their own worst enemies at times
just out of interest have Newcastle fans not been trying to ditch Mike Ashley for yrs
where are they ? in the premier at the moment
but thats not seen as being good enough as he doesnt throw minions at it , so hes reviled
who were trying to buy the club ???? but were rebuked by the authorities !!!!!
oh.. er lets brush that under the carpet
ok its only one club but i wonder how many fans wanted to turn down the investment.
you know what i bet you could count them on one hand
not saying who or what is right but very often there can be two sides to any story.
the above is just one example.

These clubs have spent massive amounts of money they can't really afford , this has pushed the costs up for everyone below them . There answer is to just walk away leaving everyone else in the cart . They will get zero sympathy from me .

i could not agree more
the point i was trying to get across was the fans of these clubs are never satisfied
i just used Newcastle as a standout case.
was it not arab investors that wanted to come in.
MA is painted as the pantomime villain by the supporters
why because he refuses to chuck millions at the club. AND wont sell probably at a loss !!!!
HE is not in it because he loves the club hes a business man as are most
PROFIT and INVESTMENT are the key words.

ps. lets not forget when we talk about this subject we had our own Mike Ashley here not long ago.
ok its a long way short of such matters but we had one guy who saw a fast buck was to be made
and you know as well as me there have been comments on here regarding
not beng prepared to watch rubbish........ acca Newcastle fans
note any similarities ?

They always used to say unless you are prepared to lose money don’t buy a football club, too many these days at the top level buy clubs thinking they can make money and it’s very rarely the case

I heard an interview with an expert in economics who had no interest in football. He actually said the model used by the Glaziers was an excellent method...... but as we know, football not like any other commodity.

Power struggle between the so called elites who want to control football. A ploy by the big clubs to try and get more money out of UEFA. They have tried to replicate what happened in 1992, when the top clubs wanted to breakaway from the Football League. The losers are the fans. Business rules full stop. FIFA and UEFA are businesses and under no circumstances want to lose control or the purse strings. The fans thinking that coming together they have stopped this, but sad to say they have not.
