I remember something like this been talked about ten years or so ago. The worrying thing now is that it appears to have taken off secretly and reading that report it appears to be pretty close to happening, Covid might put a stop to it though(every cloud).
I for one completely agree with J Carragher and his tweet. I can’t think of anything more boring, honestly I’d rather watch Utd play Everton, Villa, Wolves, Spurs, West Ham the list goes on than teams I know nothing about.
Do they expect fans to pay £1,000’s on flights as well as tickets and accommodation for this crappy idea?
Just when the world is in the grips of the most serious pandemic since gawd knows when, the financial markets are nosediving, and football at lower levels is seriously under threat, peoples jobs and livelihoods are threatened FIFFA and our so called big clubs come up with this insane idea, well I say “FIFFA STICK IT UP YOUR COLLECTIVE ARSES”.
Message to Woodward, for discussing this, you are a nasty treacherous little oink whose job is to run Utd not get involved in nasty deals like this. Is it any wonder we don’t get deals done quickly, too busy discussing big projects like this, do us a favour and feck off!
It looks closer now than it ever has done, lots of behind the doors greasing of wheels to stitch the whole thing up. FIFA will become the premier footballing body in Europe while those competitions that UEFA manage will be the sort of things that are considered second tier. It is a real threat to them, another shameless bunch it has to be said but not quite as shameless as FIFA.
