Football ‘Super League’

Absolutely disgusting from all clubs involved. Driven by greed. Not one single thought for the fans, smaller clubs or the history of the league and competitions.

I’m a Leeds United fan but have many friends who support one of the 6 English clubs involved and they are embarrassed and infuriated - fans have been hit very hard. 

Any opinions on this?

Yeah, that was a large part of discussion on the Pat McAfee show on Mad Dog Sports Radio this morning. They had a journalist on from the UK (I forget the name) that basically said the same thing.

Apparently the story is evolving though. The whole soccer scene in Europe is in upheaval at the moment.

I think it’s going to get a whole lot worse. Today is just the start..

Arsenal in there is a joke imo. They have been poor for most of the season.

Agree 100% mate. There is zero compassion or respect for the game as it is now, or how it has been built over the many years.

Even if this dosent come to fruition I am still dead set on all teams involved being heavily punished. Fines, blacklisted from leagues/competitions.. make an example of them!

On a more lighthearted note - I’m looking forward to the small matter of 90 mins rivalry on Sunday between our teams.. even if it currently doesn't mean shit :lol:

Made me laugh when both Arsenal and Spurs confirmed their involvement - Spurs have a huge stadium and ‘did’ have a celebrity manager.. on the pitch they’ve done nothing. 

Arsenal are just terrible as you say, they’ve have been loitering mid-table all season.

Also.. to bang on about fielding weaker teams for Premiership games is just mind blowing.

All these leaders at the top of the tree are hiding behind their club managers and players who have taken the brunt of media backlash. Fantastic example of leadership. Bastards.

I see that it seems Chelsea have announced their withdrawal from it? Just broke on sky news...

Hope its true and the rest see sense also and walk away...but as Aordave89 has pointed out fine them,deduct points,transfer bans...whatever it takes to let them know that this shit won't float :doh:

Yeah should hopefully be a good game,Leeds play great football...Man Utd not so good imho...we're where we're at because pretty much everyone else is having a stinker of a season(insert team here) we flatter to deceive and Ole at the wheel with his fantastic boys who hes so proud of(gotta love Farley on YT) has been a very lucky bunny with more than a few of their results :drink:

Now Man City have announced they want no part in it...it unravels slowly but surely...they can't honestly be suprised at the fans and indeed the worlds reaction?

Anywho i'm off to watch the Premier League...darts  :)

And now Woodward's gone...every cloud and all that ;)

It’s all falling like dominos! I saw that about Woodward - why do you think that is? Do you think the Glaziers want it but he didn’t, hence the resign? 

Either way good news for United fans!!

From what I've read Utd were one of the main pushers of this thing...which is even more disappointing...maybe Woodward is taking the fall in order for the owners to backtrack on it...a nice big golden handshake :whistle:

    • I don't. Hate it with a passion. Even that is so 1986. Retire Tesla please. You are an embarrassment now.

The band's new album, Super Fine Sugar, represents a huge leap forward for the hard-hitting quartet. Streetlight Circus showcases the urgent songwriting and soaring vocals of David Shaw, the fiery and passionate guitar work of George Giannoulis, the thunderous drumming of Erik Fehrenbach, and the smooth rhythm guitar work of Alex Rude. What’s more, Streetlight Circus has captured the attention of industry stalwarts who have eagerly participated in the creation of the new album. The songs were mixed and mastered by Grammy-winning producer and engineer Bob St. John. Guest appearances are made by Berton Averre (The Knack), Tony Harnell (TNT), Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies), Brian Forsythe (Kix), and Jesper and Jacob Binzer (D-A-D). Streetlight Circus has been invited to rock thousands at festivals such as Rock Fest (Wisconsin), Rocklahoma (Oklahoma), Rock N’ Derby (New York), Wolf Fest (Colorado), and the M3 Rock Festival (Maryland) among many others. The band has managed to comfortably fit on bills featuring bands as heavy as Avatar, Anthrax, and Megadeth and as accessible as The Doobie Brothers, Buckcherry, and Night Ranger. In 2018, Streetlight Circus embarked on a successful headlining tour of the United Kingdom taking them from Wales to Scotland and many British points in between. Supercharged and ready to roll with Super Fine Sugar, Streetlight Circus is prepared to rock stages around the globe. Don’t miss your chance to rock under the band’s big top. It’s a show you won’t want to miss. Watch the video for "Dirty Earth" featuring Tony Harnell at the link below  https://youtu.be/08_IuFTqwTM  
    • warrant?? CP and DED destroy the debut imo. 🤷

    • Such was commonplace around here years ago. 
    • That's an oxymoron-even KarpetRyd knows that !  
    • Checked this out....not too bad but not sure how memorable it'll be. There's a few tunes I thought sounded pretty good after my first listen and do think Ronnie sounds excellent on the album  Songs like Scream and Shot in the Dark both stood out to me a bit.  I thought Last Man Alive sounded decent too. Much of the rest kind of feels like it falls in line with the first 2 singles that were released.  It's kind of heavy which is cool but just not coming off as being that catchy or memorable initially which was sort of my same problem with the last album.   We'll see what happens with more listens.  Here's a link to the whole album:  
    • WTF is this, two dudes having an intelligent conversation about a band without relying on easy absolutes. I'm impressed.
