Gary Neville 👏 👏
An absolute seminal riposte from Gary Neville today on the leak of the formation of a European Super League 👏 👏
Gary Neville’s Sky Sports outburst is below.
This is not anything new, but the lastest leak comes the day before a UEFA meeting tomorrow announcing radical changes to the Champions League. Not good enough for the 12 clubs said to be involved including six from England – Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham. Sorry, but have a couple of them looked at themselves in the table recently?
The other clubs reported to have signed up include debt ridden Barcelona, Juventus and Inter Milan. No clubs from France and Germany interestingly. The suggestion has been deeply condemned by almost everyone, although not as eloquently or passionately as Gary Neville.
As this excellent article suggests this has to be the idea of only those that truly hate sport and everything that sport and competition means.
I just wish they would bugger off to their 24/7 TV channel of playing each other every week, and let the rest of us get on with it. Grass roots football would be reborn.
People have never stopped going to the theatre, even though there is a blockbuster multi-million dollar budget Hollywood movie on at the Odeon.
F them and their JP Morgan money. Take your shiny ball to your monotonous, uncompetitive, money soaked league. Life goes on without you as it has for 150 years.
