Yes because the competition laws under the single market comes under eu law with the eu courts as the arbitrator .... it was one of the major reasons the conservatives wouldn't remain in the single market with brexit
I dont think anybody in the know has ever said we were the main ones pushing it. The fact they grouped all Americans together instead of directly calling us out shows this imo.
We would have demands met due to who we are but it doesnt necessarily mean we were the driving force.
But who knows. Id say there was group greed involved, its a bit strange to be calling out levels of greed.
Joel Glazer pushed for this, he released a statement to that effect.Joel Glazer, Co-Chairman of Manchester United and Vice-Chairman of the Super League said:
“By bringing together the world’s greatest clubs and players to play each other throughout the season, the Super League will open a new chapter for European football, ensuring world-class competition and facilities, and increased financial support for the wider football pyramid.”
I meant the supporters but yes good pointsI think the fans of all the clubs were equally disgusted. If any of the "big 6" were playing tonight we'd see similar or bigger protests.
I give Chelsea the club no credit other than acting reasonably fast in changing their mind.
I have updated my "Location" on my profile because once this has all died down, I fully intend to embrace it for japes.
Luke Shaw has been outstanding this season. And I was very impressed by what he has said.A few things:
Great that Woodward is gone, but a new idiot will follow
Hoping that the owners (not the clubs) will somehow be punished (unlikely, I know)
Let's change the model in England and get the Glazers out once and for all
So great to see all collapse so quickly!
Big respect to Shaw and Maguire
Surely the government can use the ‘fit and proper ‘ status to now force them out?I'll hold the champas until we get a full autopsy of this whole ordeal and when we have an inkling of who might be getting Woodward's gig.
Hopefully the reports of Glazers potentially packing up due to the fall out are also true
That's 50,000 supporters chipping in with 10,000 pounds each. Might be ambitious, yes.In principle, I completely agree.
But. And it is a massive massive but. Assuming United are worth say £1bn, how is it going to be even remotely possible for the supporters to come up with £501millions.
Unfortunately, it is a pipe dream.
I just imagine he was drunk all week. He thought he will have the money to sack Jose and to keep Kane.I'm sorry for Levy. He had one night of dreams about endless stream of money, all gone now.
