    Anyone have an overview of how much money the clubs in Serie A are losing every year? I know that Milan will have to break even by 2021 in order to not be banned from Europe (altho still pending CAS). Would be interesting to see especially for Inter.

    Agnelli slams Serie A
    By Football Italia staff

    Juventus and European clubs chief Andrea Agnelli has accused Serie A of ‘protectionism’ after it threw out his plans for Champions League reform.

    The European Club Association (ECA) wants the Champions League and Europa League to be replaced with a three-tier League, which includes promotion and relegation as opposed to qualification through the domestic route.

    However, Serie A has joined forces with the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga and Ligue 1 in voicing its opposition to the ECA’s proposals.

    “What has been really disappointing so far has been the whole conversation has been driven by representatives of the big five Leagues,” Agnelli said at a Press conference.

    “I see it as a protectionism of the big five Leagues vis-a-vis the rest of European football.

    “I can give you an answer as a member of a big five Leagues, because I play in one of them.

    “And I can give you an answer as chairman of the ECA. My answers will vary... depending on which hat I put on in giving you the answer.

    “The hat I care the most about [today] is the hat of the European Club Association chairman.

    “It is important that we, in a united way, concur in finding solutions for the good of European football.

    “If we want to find solutions for the good of European football we must take a step back and a step above, and try to see things from a different level.

    “We should try to put ourselves in the shoes of each other and understand what is the best solution going forward.”

    I stopped reading at "protectionism". Serie A clubs are not the only ones who don't want it, 7 Spanish clubs have also opposed to it.

    So even if those Serie A clubs were "protectionist, it's not just them.

    Spoken like a true politician.

    "We must preserve stability" (i.e. keep our fat checks)

    "We have to do what is best for *insert group*" (i.e. we want to promote our own agenda at the expense of everyone else we say we're here to help)


    Fuck Agnelli, fuck the ECA and fuck UEFA. They've completely destroyed this sport in the last 10 years.

    Honestly, I would be open to a change. But it must not be in the hands of those who are involved in it.

    I wouldn't mind if the Champions League were like any other league in that, you know, you play a round-robin schedule within it along with playing in your regular domestic, but that's automatically a 76-game season for the teams involved in it (for contrast, the max number of games a Serie A team can play, factoring in every possible competition, I believe is 58) so that solution could only exist in video games.

    So I'm not sure a real good solution does exist. I do agree and have said before that I don't think the current Champions League structure is the most optimal. That said, I agree with Firmino; I'm not about to give the task of "fixing" the Champions League to the current powers that be. Sadly, I'm not sure there's a footballing body on earth that doesn't reek of corruption.

    The Champions League is the most important trophy in Europe. At the same time, it's the least important competiion in Europe for fans. If you center European football around it, football will eventually die or transform into something we'd all wish it were dead. Fans love the Champions League because it is a prestigious trophy and the bragging rights are through the roof. Bragging rights is what football is all about. Kill the domestic rivalries and you kill the sport. Nobody wants to see Barcelona vs Liverpool and Real Madrid vs Bayern Munchen every year.

    Fonseca is pretty much confirmed as the Roma boss. Can't say I know anything about him.

    He was poor at Porto, decent at Braga and great at Shakhtar. He is an interesting choice but also a gamble.

    I know I'm not the only one that is a purist and likes football for football sake. Trophies are secondary to me.

    The sport will live on.

    The sport will live on with unaffiliated consumers pretending to be fans of a handful teams and players. Thanks, but that's not football.

    Even though he is probably a football hooligan, a nazi, a satanist and a child fiddler. I gotta say im almost always on brehme's side somehow when it comes down to football. Agree

    according to gazzetta.it, bologna will soon announce their new three-year deal with mihajlovic and sabatini will also work for them.

    Spot on. These agnellis and other fucks don't seem to understand that football will indeed die if they try to create this plastic league to be played around Europe. Who's gonna go to the stadiums to actuality watch the games? Maybe tourists and some middle class football followers who don't really give a fuck about the club. Who wants to watch Juve-Real or Liverpool- Barcelona every week? These big matches will become ordinary matches and that simply kills the hype and "mythical" aspect of the CL. Inter-Juve in the plastic league wouldn't feel the same as in Serie A.
