Quick question for the Eds, Has well as using the Coutinho fee to buy a replacement is their any chance we might try sign young Sessegnon from fulham (even if we loan him back) . He could prove as shrewd an investment has Coutinho was. Thanks in advance and for all the hard work you do.

Dub Jim

{Ed001's Note - I don't know of any likelihood of us moving for him as I believe Spurs are intent on him as replacing Rose and they will be happy with a loan back deal.}

1.) 06 Jan 2018 18:20:25
Thanks for the reply, that's a shame I love the thought of having him on one side and TAA on the other weather it be full backs, wing backs or maybe even wingers in the future. It would have been nice.

Like so much of Egypt's treasures Mo Salah was stolen and taken to England. What a player.

Dub Jim

1.) 17 Mar 2018 19:36:49
Slight Jealous👀. nearly 40 goals scored, from the wing and still 2 months of the season left, my word he is an astonishing player. Its the quality of the goals he's scored aswell, not just tap-ins, first goal today was reminiscent of Messi's vs Bayern.

2.) 17 Mar 2018 20:55:49
He’s outstanding Scholes, I hope the player of the season awards are not dominated by City players. 28 league goals and 9 assists thus far, I think he deserves it. The City players are all part of an outstanding team that get the best out of each other, Mo at times has simply just done it all on his own.

I do hope he perseveres with us for 2 more seasons, if we don’t deliver trophies for him by then he is entitled to look for a move.

3.) 17 Mar 2018 22:01:36
Think he just about deserves it over KDB, both been wonderful but Salah edges it.

4.) 17 Mar 2018 22:22:22
KDB has been playing in the PL for 3 seasons while this is Salah's first REAL season as a true starter in the PL and at this moment, he should win it cos he is accomplishing things that took veteran players like KDB, Kane and Aguero, several years to do and accomplish.

Q for Ed2
Regarding this break away league (sorry im sure your sick thus already) is there anything to stop the cubs who leave for the new European league from buying small teams near them and use them has a feeder club? Couldn't Man utd buy (example Bury) put them in matching kits with diff sponsors send all their youths their and potentially play their games in old Trafford to maximise returns? Because a 16-team euro league would only be 30 games a season 15 home games initially, its not a lot for fans. And if that is a possibility wouldn't it be better to leave them in the prem and let them effectively run two different teams? If the FA restricted them to only field 3 foreign players or all home-grown players, it could benefit home nations? It all sounds horrible whatever happens im just thinking out loud really. Thanks in advance.

Dub Jim

{Ed002's Note - Unfortunately Jim the rules block that as they stand. It was thought that a possible option to move in that direction might have resulted from a potential landmark decision that UEFA were to make in June or July 2017 - and that could have facilitated the ownership of lower-tier sides by the more senior sides and then work as a feeder club. However – the need to make that decision was avoided so there is no change just yet. But eventually it will need to be allowed or clubs will start going down the pan. Two things which certainly would not happen is Bury taking Manchester United place in the PL and the stadium issue is one that has already been addressed by the group of teams in response to a question asked by Celta Vigo in response to (a) whether the Real Madrid and Barcelona "B" sides would be allowed promotion to La Liga if both sides departed, and (b) if they would be allowed to move from their existing stadia and move in to the Santiago Bernabeu and Camp Nou.}

1.) 11 Feb 2018 15:16:44
Thanks for the reply Ed
I didn't mean a feeder club taking their place in the league I just mean if they had a feeder club that feeder club would eventually end up in the premier league. And also would the previous rules not apply to them anymore if they broke away? Would they not be out on their own in regards to the FA or UEFA?

{Ed002's Note - There would be no provision to do it - no one is looking to try and cheat the system.}

2.) 11 Feb 2018 15:34:40
Great ED002 thanks
Could I just get your expert opinion on one final matter, If their was a backlash across Europe and the vast majority of fans boycotted it, would it make any difference? Thanks for all your work.

{Ed002's Note - The fans welcome it Jim. A number of the clubs have spoken with their fan groups and, aside from one who have said they won't be joing the league, it has been well received.}

3.) 11 Feb 2018 20:56:28
What fans Ed? Do Liverpool fans? Liverpool fans crave for their club to be competing with the best yet when you suggest that the club might not even be invited you just expect Liverpool fans on here to simply embrace the idea as a wonderful one and just get over it? It's an absolutely terrible idea that will suck the soul right out of football, it's only a good idea to those with dollar signs in their eyes.

{Ed002's Note - Sorry, where did I say all of that?}

4.) 12 Feb 2018 02:16:51
Things you have suggested:

- breakaway league is a good idea
- Liverpool likely won't be involved
- you want everyone to be supposedly reasonable and embrace it because it "makes financial sense" and is supposedly the way forward. Fat chance Ed.

5.) 12 Feb 2018 09:54:15
Think you ve made part 1 and 3 up Nicky. Don’t recall ed giving his opinion on whether it was a good idea, asked no one to embrace it and just said the facts. Yes it probably would make financial sense for those involved. No need to throw your toys out of your Pram.



10 Feb 2018 15:23:11
Q for Ed2
Regarding this breakaway european league, suppose Liverpool or spurs or whoever were euopean champions and considered the best team in europe (higly unlikely i know) the season before the breakaway. Would they be invited in and if not, in your opinion, would their exclusion not devalue the league? Thanks in advance.

Dub Jim

{Ed002's Note - No and no.}

1.) 10 Feb 2018 16:15:53
Seems strange that a team with a record in Europe probably only 2nd to Madrid in Europe.2nd most successful in English history, a fanbase up there with the very biggest teams with one of the largest revenues wouldn't be invited.

2.) 10 Feb 2018 16:32:59
Big Emre it's all about now not history from 30 plus years ago. It really is simple if we had been a top Premier league team with a few championships we would have been invited.
On the breakaway I think it will loose all appeal after 10 years and teams will try and get back into their respective leagues.

{Ed002's Note - The respective leagues will have changed considerably by then.}

3.) 10 Feb 2018 18:05:17
ED002, correct me if I am wrong here, but will the pan breakaway only be made up of the clubs that are currently involved in the on going meetings in Monaco?

Will there be a second tier league? And if so what teams would make that league up?



{Ed002's Note - The plan remains it is those clubs. Subsequently their may be a second tleague but that is far off and some will be against it.}

4.) 10 Feb 2018 18:21:03

For the teams left in the premier league, will there be an opportunity to get into the breakaway league through winning the league, champions league of another competition? And subsequently a team from the breakaway league loosing there place through relegation?

But, where would they be relegated to? They would have lost of there place in the league they came from I guess as it would be two different governing associations, no?

I guess I just answered my own question, but the breakaway league would soon become boring as every team would be safe from relegation as they have nowhere to be relegated too?

Could players be bought from the premier league by a team in the breakaway league

I am opening a can of worms in my own head here



{Ed002's Note - (1) No, that is not the plan. (2) There is no reason to think that transfer would be any different to now - this has already been discussed.}

5.) 10 Feb 2018 18:29:13

Sorry to be a pain, but do UEFA have representatives at the meetings in Monaco? Do they get invited?

They must have a bit of a sweat on with the prospect of it happening, as you would think it would de value the champions league and the UEFA cup eventually


{Ed002's Note - It remains the greatest fear of UEFA and all major national authorities that one day this will happen – which has resulted in a counter-proposal being drafted by UEFA. They don't attend the meetings as members but have on some occasions been represented where specific matters are being discussed, or where they wish to raise specific matters with the clubs.}

6.) 10 Feb 2018 18:36:00
Ed002, a or two question if I may and it’s hypothetical, but would the exclusion of Liverpool from the breakaway league hurt Liverpool considerably? The reason I say Liverpool is coz I support Liverpool, but spurs could be an example too. Basically clubs who complete in European completions most years.

And have the breakaway discussed further entries? Promotion demotion style or is it just going to be the X amount of clubs and that's it?

{Ed002's Note - If the proposal for a breakaway goes ahead, there is every likelihood that the big money from television, sponsorship etc. would go with a breakaway league. It would completely rupture the operations of UEFA and I would expect it would require national associations like the FA to restructure their leagues. Nobody wants this but it is the eventual consequence I would expect. Initially it could be that there is a single 16 team league with probably 3 EPL teams making the initial plunge. If I had to speculate, I would think (1) you might eventually see something like five or six EPL teams leave for two-tier pan European league - but it won't be based on the UEFA rankings and it is a long way off; (2) the Premier League would be disbanded as an organisation; (3) the FA would restructure in to two 20 team divisions with lower leagues regionalised as they were many years ago; (4) FIFA would ban all players from the breakaway teams from International football - perhaps rescinding that position to stop FIFA breaking up as well - they don't want further issues but the troubles are not going to go away. I could also see many teams lose their professional status. I would think we are probably 10 years away from any significant move at this time.

I hold a reasonably strong view in terms of the need to restructure football in Europe in any case. For me an eventual a breakaway pan-European league would force the restructuring of many of the national leagues, possibly resulting in a British league with perhaps only a couple of professional tiers and then regionalised amateur leagues below that. Financially I do not see that so many pro sides can be sustained within the sport which, like it or not, will see more and more money going in to the highest levels of the game. Governments will ensure that grassroots sport get funding but everything in the middle (Southern, Northern, Conference, Division 2, Scottish Divisions 1-3, League of Wales will not get the funding needed to continue on any sort of professional basis. For me, clubs should already recognise this and put their efforts in to getting there finances in order to see if they can make it to a British professional league that will need to flourish without perhaps six sides that have gone down the pan-European route - and have gone for good. Clubs like Accrington Stanley will need to carry on as amateurs or face extinction (yet again).

The game has changed significantly and will continue to do so. Football at the highest level is big business and attracts the sponsorship it does because the sponsors wish to tap in to the disposable income of the fans and ride the back of the advertising that flows naturally from the success some clubs achieve. Long gone are the days of the cloth-capped, hobnailed-booted, chimney sweep making his way, rattle in hand, to cheer on his team at Anfield on a Saturday afternoon. I have explained that there will be changes, probably within the next 10 to 12 years, which will force the restructuring of all of the leagues in Europe and likely do away with the likes of UEFA. You will have the opportunity to see the likes of Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus and the other major European sides play in week-on-week regular competition at The Emirates, Stamford Bridge etc.. You will have the opportunity to visit Milan, Barcelona, Monaco, etc. every couple of weeks to watch your team play - if they make the cut. If you want to don your cloth cap, have a pint of wallop with your chums before going off to the local match, perhaps one of the sides from the suburbs will have survived so you can go and watch them?}

7.) 10 Feb 2018 18:37:55

Last question, is there a free pint of wallop in it for you?

All the best mate.

{Ed002's Note - I don't drink wallop at all Kemlyn.}

8.) 10 Feb 2018 18:49:10
Thanks for the info Ed002, always a pleasure.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

9.) 10 Feb 2018 18:49:51
Thanks Ed002 for you answer and I do remember seeing a lot of the points from you before, so thanks for putting it together. it was a good read.

{Ed002's Note - Glad it helped.}

10.) 10 Feb 2018 18:53:46
I think liverpool have a good chance of winning ucl. We can beat anyone. Not favourites of course but we are there.

11.) 10 Feb 2018 18:57:42
From what I read, liverpool would be asked. We are European football royalty.

I really hate the idea of it though and I hope and pray it doesn't happen. It would be another example of money ruining the game we love. Things like Leicester winning the Premier will be over and devalue the achievements of potential winners of the Premier league. Does it mean Liverpool will never play Everton again? Or only rarely in fa Cup etc.

12.) 10 Feb 2018 18:58:10
I am guessing the new league will have a top 4 places and it will need the likes of Us, Spurs and Arsenal to fight for that spot lol!

13.) 10 Feb 2018 20:01:48
This breakaway league could be what most fans are craving. Let the breakaway teams go. That leaves the league clubs with a limited pot of money and the 'good old days' where it's not all about money. Every team left wold be working to a budget, I'd imagine less big wages, less foreign players, more teams made up of home grown and local lads. It may not have the glitz and gL'Amour of the breakaway but domestically could be the best thing to happen. Just my opinion. Clean the slate and start again.

14.) 10 Feb 2018 20:58:36
A pan European football league sounds incredibly boring to be honest, no more derbys, no more giant killings, no new teams from lower leagues, no unexpected results, no rivalries, no fun, no atmosphere, Just dull, sterile football.

Imagine if United went and we didn’t, the United fans live to do us over, playing PSG every other week will just take the fun out of it for them, they would have nothing to look forward to, it’s like taking away Xmas, same goes if we went and Everton didn’t, I would miss derby day too much, sorry but give me Everton over Real Madrid any day of the week.
I imagine all the big teams fans would miss it as well after the initial honeymoon period, the big money will go initially but if the stands are empty after a few years and nobody’s watching on sky/ bt/ Amazon/ google anymore because it’s a total snore fest then the money and sponsorship will Soon dry up.
The moneymen in football are a bit naive thinking they can completely rip the soul out of football and expect the fans to lap it up and chuck money at them, we don’t live to watch PSG vs Madrid just because it’s PSG vs Madrid, we live to see the unexpected, games like the legendary LfC vs Newcastle game (4-4) smashing Norwich for 6, even getting turned over by Cyrstal palace, Gerrards slip, leisters title win as it’s these moments/ talking points that make football special and successful not Neymars latest haircut.

{Ed002's Note - They would play teams as often as they play Liverpool. You wildly underestimate how popular it will be. It is a natural progression away from what is bloated and unsustainable.}

15.) 10 Feb 2018 21:08:26
Ed002 alluding to a cap and rattle 😂😂

I’ve been following and going to the games, home and away for over 30 years, no cap, no rattle, just plenty of brilliant days out following my team. Pure football days out.

Football lost it’s “rattles and caps” when Murdoch got his greeds hands on the games.

Chelsea away used to be totally hostie, now it’s full of Sloaney blondes thinking they know everything about football! Believe me I know, because I still go to Chelsea away and have a few pints in the white horse on Parsons Green.

I’d rather see the rattes and fat caps than the soulless support of today.

{Ed002's Note - we lived very close to the ground when we first moved to England and we stay regularly in the Chelsea Harbour hotel still. I don’t recall the White Horse but there is a very good vintage guitar shop in Parsons Green. Try the Chelsea Prayer Room (you need to ask if there is space in there as it is above a restaurant called Goat. Else Barts is worth a visit. The Lots Raod pub on, not surprisingly, on Lots Road is pleasant enough, you can park nearby and it is about a 10 minute walk to the ground.}

16.) 10 Feb 2018 21:43:41
Wildly popular with who though? I’m not pretending I speak for the majority of football fans, but I would have thought the majority of football fans would hate it.

17.) 11 Feb 2018 06:43:54
To me it sounds too predictable if there are the same set of clubs doing the rounds. A p-Ing contest between billionaires to see how much money they can waste on agents. Can’t wait to pay for that 😴
I think the people pushing this idea are wildly over estimating how popular it would be. If it takes the billionaire owners away from the game then it’s probably a positive step.
Football in this country would survive and be just as popular. You get 25k fans plus going to some championship games these days. Do you think Newcastle fans will abandon their team fo go and watch Chelsea’s millionaire mercenaries play PSG millionaire mercenaries on Sky? 😄.

18.) 11 Feb 2018 07:06:24
One more thought on the breakaway. Common sense says the big sponsors and money follow at the start as it had world wide appeal. In short period of time with the leagues reorganised and regional areas the sponsors will be back and football big business again. The reasoning behind this is the Nfl (breakaway ) and then college football (UK leagues) . Both extremely successful and full houses and money in sponsorship. Suppose all the UK players will also be hoping to get 'drafted' to the big league also. I'm not worried in the slightest.

19.) 11 Feb 2018 09:11:38
I have to agree with others about it not sticking long term. I for one will not be watching, I will cancel my tv subscription and go and watch my local team play or even better will go and watch rugby which is a much more honest and friendly place.

I can see it working in the short term but after a while the teams which do less well in the breakaway league will loose there glamour, Man U fans will not want to see there team spanked week in week out and be at the bottom of the table. PSG will loose there appeal when they are not able to win the league. The league over time will be become uncompetitive, boring and predictable, the same couple of teams that come make more revenue will come out top every year and those teams which used to be at the top in there respective country and now just mid table in a rich boys league which will have no pull to attract new fans.

This will be bad for football, I know the current status is not as good at is could be and the money is causing an issue but we do have a competitive league where no one team dominates. The likes of Watford can stun us with wins over the top boys, we can see thrashing at the Emirates, of arsenal anyway.

{Ed002's Note - Piffa: You are missing the point that there is a need for a natural progression away from what we have now and conceptually it is not considerably different from the elagues across Europe aside from relegation/promotion - and realistically clubs like Watford, Swansea, Burnley et al do not go on to challenge seriously in the Premier League at all. Periodically things change - the Premier League didn't even exist until 1992 but I guess a lot of readers are young and don't recall the previous structure. UEFA didn't exist until the mid 1950s and the Champions League has regularly changed formats.

There are a lot of questions above in other posts that have not been answered. To try and pick off a few:
Supersalah: Liverpool are not part of this - and nobody cares about the ridiculous "European Royalty" claim.
Mikey: Fans of most European sides are far less insular that the Liverpool supporters who largely live in the past.
Ron: It will be no different than the Premier League where there are a limited number of clubs who can realistically win it - but the number, looking at the clubs, is not just three or four like the Premier League. From the overall group of "elite" clubs involved two have already declared they won't be involved with any Breakaway and another three are sat on the fence - leaving for now the 16 I spoke of.}

20.) 11 Feb 2018 10:02:45
I know formats have changed over the years. I am not arguing that change should not happen, but the same premise has happened over all those years. Club can go from the bottom to the top, obviously we do not see it as much, but from what I can tell that will never happen again. The elite will already be decided, not by fans or opinion and not by right but by the elite. Fixed in place to play only the elite week in week out. Obviously there are many questions unanswered but the way I see it, they will be under no jurisdiction of current associations, therefore making their own rules voted for by clubs which only have money in mind. These clubs will then be outside of normal jurisdiction, not able to play the FA Cup and other domestic competitions. I think people underestimate the power of and intelligence of people, football is sat precariously the edge of a cliff that could result in its downfall and at the heart of the problem is greed. This is a continued example of that.

My own opinion is that it may not happen outside the remit of FIFA and therefore it may continue to use some of the rules of our current system but this must include promotion/ relegation of some form, it cannot be a locked in elite of clubs on an invite only basis.

{Ed002's Note - I think you have missed a few things here. Firstly they will need a governing body and UEFA would obviously like to take that role. One way or the other that will be resolved, even if it is eventually outside of FIFA (as some are). The league will be formed in exactly the same was as the Premier League was formed - a decision by the clubs in the old First Division to "break away" (from what was then the Football League) and form their own league - so it is exactly the same. They will not be changing and Laws of the game. There will be no obligation for promotion/obligation and I have explained that may eventually changeed - and there is no FIFA ruling that mandates that needs to happen.}

21.) 11 Feb 2018 11:04:47
Brilliant thread and some very interesting points and opinions in this debate. Will be very interesting to see what happens in the long run. Will it be the revival of dad/ mum being able to afford to take the kids to the local derby or will we all be wishing we was part of the elite league watching the world class perform? I personally wouldn’t be able to afford the luxury of following my team around Europe so it’s local for me.

22.) 11 Feb 2018 11:33:15

If it’s not televised globally then the clubs won’t survive. It’s the money that’s coming from the TV rights that’s pulling the strings. No body wants to see the games that’s not on TV mate! None of the top clubs would survive without the TV money!

23.) 11 Feb 2018 11:38:34
I understand your points ed. And I agree that football needs to change to make it more competitive but I would be really sad to see the end of the league as we know it. No matter what aspect of life you look at, the rich get rich and the poor struggle to survive. Perhaps if every team in Europe was involved and was more regional the lower down the league it goes.

There has to be a way for the lesser clubs to progress and eventually break into that European league. It seems the gap between the top sides will only be widened making it more difficult for those not in the top European league to sign quality players. That said there won't be enough teams for all the quality talent out there to play for. I'm struggling to make sense of it.

24.) 11 Feb 2018 11:40:47
One of greatest team of all time - Nottingham Forest should be included.

25.) 11 Feb 2018 11:37:54
But that is my point. It’s outside of FIFA. Nothing like that has happened to a league this big. The Premier league is different in that it is still governed by the FA and overall FIFA which have a common standard of football.

{Ed002's Note - FIFA's primary role is to organise international competition. The Laws are the responsibility of a different body. Leagues are not associated with FIFA and a reorganised UEFA could certainly oversee a Pan European League.

I don't get your point, what "standards" of football do you see an issue with?

26.) 11 Feb 2018 14:24:51
The current standard or rules of football are set out by IFAB and inpretted by each football association thus making the sport consistent to all those who govern by it. The main people that hold the majority of the seats at that table are FIFA and the rest are made up by uk football Association. It’s been that way for a long time. If the new league is not governed by FIFA or the FA they do not have to abide by those rules. They could potentially change the game to suit a style or platform that they prefer, for example changing match lengths or ball size. I think u are incorrect about FIFA only being there to arrange international competitions.

This is all individual opinion, only time will tell if it does happen and if it is good or bad for the game. Personally I can’t see it being good for football but I am just one person with my own agenda and view. What I like about this site is it is a great platform for debate. Thank u for you time.

{Ed002's Note - They will abide by the rules of the game as they stand now and as are amended over time Piffmunda - it will not be like the 20-20 thing has done to cricket. That has already been agreed.

You seem to be clutching at some pretty extreme straws now.}

27.) 11 Feb 2018 18:58:05
Ed002, if you don’t mind.

How will Brexit affect the discussions?
All non-British/ Northern Irish players playing in Uk will need work permits, fans and players will need visas to travel to these places. British/ Northern Irish players will need work permits to transfer to these clubs.

{Ed002's Note - Brexit is of no relevance to the discussions. It is not actually clear what would happen with work permits but regardless it won't impact the players and differently to playing in the Premier League. There would certainly not be any overnight change but the eventual position would likely be a need for work permits and residence permits. In terms of existing EU citizens already working in the UK, there is no plan but I would think an amnesty would be the likely decision followed by a quota system of some type. The issue at the moment is those arriving in the lead up to the UK leaving - that is part of the discussions happening at the moment. A good question but no firm answer I am afraid.}



06 Feb 2018 21:19:22
Ive just read the club are set to announce the expansion of the Anfield road end and bring the capacity to 61,000. Just wondering if any of the Eds can confirm this? thanks in advance.

Dub Jim

{Ed002's Note - 60k was the agreed limit

1.) 06 Feb 2018 22:03:28
Not seen this. Is it confirmed then ed mate and do you no when its being done please?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea.}

2.) 06 Feb 2018 22:40:20
Apparently their gona announce it in the next few days and hope to have it finished by May 2021? No start date given. Here's hoping anyway.

3.) 06 Feb 2018 23:12:52
And people moan about our owners lol. They get nothing but respect from me, even if this doesn't go ahead (which I think it will) they have done nothing but help us out in every way possible. Fair play to them.

4.) 07 Feb 2018 01:54:26
Sorry Salah but you're deluded if you think the owners are 'helping us out'. They seem like responsible business owners but don't think that a single decision is based on anything other than financial gain.
Fortunately, smart business decisions often benefit us as fans too but a stadium extension has nothing to do with keeping the supporters happy.

5.) 07 Feb 2018 05:01:49
Sounds like nothing will make you happy mate.
Good on em, hope they handle the PR side of the ticket prices better than last time.

6.) 07 Feb 2018 08:24:16
It wouldn't make much sense to go over the 60k limit for an extra 1000 seats with all the extra costs it would accrue.

7.) 07 Feb 2018 10:00:40
Good on the owners to do that if confirmed. A business is there to make a profit, end of story so I don't understand why people get on the owners' back for running LFC as a business. LFC IS a business and is there to succeed and make profits off of success on the pitch and provided we don't need to sell to survive which is the case right now, we are a very healthy business and hopefully we will be successful trophy-wise soon and keep growing. They do have to handle the ticket costs issues right tho. Not a difficult thing to grasp.

8.) 07 Feb 2018 11:12:13
It could be 75,000 seater and it would still be a nightmare to get tickets lol.

{Ed002's Note - That is not going to happen.}

Sorry red lorry but you are too cynical dude have some optimism. Of course the owners know they can make more money with 10000 new seats but mate, how much money are they really making? 100.000 a year. That is peaanuts to the guys who bought a 75 mil defender and sold a 140.000.000 player. It is the fans who benefit the most. We are a big club but our ground is falling behind to arsenal, utd and spurs and chelsea.

BRover, I agree 110% mate with all of your post.

RedLorryRedLorry, you think I'm deluded that's ok, I won't even get into the debate with you mate because it's pretty evident you have no idea what your talking about.

All i said is that FSG are not in the business of ‘helping out’ fans. Maybe they are registered as a charity and i was unaware. Maybe they are not planning to profit from extending the ground. Bloody nice chaps if that’s true.

Monty Python, " what have the roman's ever done for us. "

"Well roads, schools, drains, clean water, safe streets, ect".

Does feel like that regarding FSG on here sometimes, saved us from bankruptcy, new stand, perhaps another, manager we all wanted, most expensive defender in the world, Salah, Mane, Firminio, and Keita on his way, playing some of the most exciting football in Europe.

But apart from that what have FSG done for us. Jeez.

No TIA im suggesting that if were gona lose a 17 year old whos done nothing in senior football, then we try and use him to get something we do want and someone who does want to play for us. Granted its very unlikely but all im saying is could be worth a try!

Thanks for the reply, that's a shame I love the thought of having him on one side and TAA on the other weather it be full backs, wing backs or maybe even wingers in the future. It would have been nice.

Q for ED002?
Will the clubs involved be still making most of their money from the likes of sky and bt or will the majority of their money be made from selling tv or streaming packages directly to their own fans? Thanks in advance.

Great ED002 thanks
Could I just get your expert opinion on one final matter, If their was a backlash across Europe and the vast majority of fans boycotted it, would it make any difference? Thanks for all your work.

Dub Jim

{Ed002's Note - The fans welcome it Jim. A number of the clubs have spoken with their fan groups and, aside from one who have said they won't be joing the league, it has been well received.}

Thanks for the reply Ed
I didn't mean a feeder club taking their place in the league I just mean if they had a feeder club that feeder club would eventually end up in the premier league. And also would the previous rules not apply to them anymore if they broke away? Would they not be out on their own in regards to the FA or UEFA?

Dub Jim

{Ed002's Note - There would be no provision to do it - no one is looking to try and cheat the system.}
