    Super league?

    Anybody know anything about this?? Apparently France Football is planning a league to begin in 2012. Personally I was expecting something like this the moment I heard they found a loophole for 5+6 rule, the big clubs won't take that lying down imho.

    It is inevitable. Sooner or later it will happen, sadly.

    Does that means it will replace the Champion League?
    So instead of knock out rounds, we will participate in 2 leagues at the same time?

    Yes, if it happens it will replace both Champions league and UEFA cup. Domestic leagues will have to reduce the number of games to give their teams a chance to play on the european level as well. I'm not sure how it will work, but the rumour is 3 tiers with 20 teams in each. That could mean an additional 38 games on the european level for each team.

    And that will mean a lot of money. Games like Inter-Barcelona, Man-Real Madrid etc. will be played every week.

    I don't think the clubs competing in this superleague would compete in their domestic championships. This idea is on for some years in that G14 group (or is it G15).

    It would be something like NBA where it isn't possible to be relegated and it's very difficult to include another team.

    I don't know if this is still the same idea of a few years back, when the big clubs threatened UEFA they will form that league if they dont get more marketing money.

    How many countries and how many clubs from each will they take?

    Seeing 60 clubs across 3 tiers, I would say in all 10 would be from Italy. So Inter, Juve, Milan in tier 1; Roma, Fiorentina.. in tier 2 and likes of Napoli in tier 3.

    Now what about the remaining Italian clubs? And how would clubs from a country be promoted to this league; considering there would be no domestic league or rather these clubs won't compete in the domestic league.

    Nevermind, it was apparently just a rumour:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/foo...Amsterdam.html


    Just for the record, this wasn't the same proposal as the one which came out in the past. That was by the G14, a group of 14 top tier clubs who threatened to leave their domestic leagues and form an independent G14 league, and were disbanded early 2008. This current rumor was about the current European Club Association supporting this move, with the team playing in both a domestic league and in a European league at the same time, just like they play domestic+CL now.

    However, some still insist that ECA is pushing for this, and there is some support from within UEFA, despite Rummenigge's strong opposition.

    Sure, lets form a super league.
    So we can lose to EPL clubs 8 times in a year.

    France Football said that Platini was willing to listen to the top clubs to study for this league. But meanwhile Platini announced this is totally not on the order. This will absolutely not happend.

    It would be much harder to win, but it would be much justy. The really best and strongest would win it, not the luckiest.

    And don't think the English Four would be on place 1-2-3-4.

    The Superleague is retarded, do people not know that each club will no longer have the same money. There is going to be favoritism amongst clubs even worse than in our domestic leagues. National teams will go into the shit hole. Sorry not a good idea at all.

    Stupid idea indeed. If there would be big games week in week out, they would lose their shine. The big games would become normal games. Is that what we want? Definitely not.
