    I think it was when the Old Bell Hotel decided to host a meeting between members of Derbyshire CCC who drunkenly decided they wanted to play kick ball in the winter.

    We've had this discussion so many times, you'd think everyone would know the answer by now....
    When Charlie George dislocated his shoulder against Stoke.

    I'm amazed. Amazed at the sheer incompetence of the directors of the would be breakaway clubs. I'd assumed that they would at least have calculated this level of backlash and were prepared to ride the storm. To fold so quickly after the idea went public means that they had no idea how negative the reception would be. These are people who are paid hundreds of thousands, some millions, per year based on their knowledge of football markets. How were they so surprised by the reaction? "Oh no! We never could've envisaged that UEFA would use their institutional power to protect their incredibly profitable cup competition."

    Does this mean that if the sheikh offers Henry 2bn again for Liverpool, this time he will take it ?

    I've been thinking about this ESL all day and tbh have been against it from the beginning.
    However... a league you can't get relegated from no matter how bad you play does have a certain appeal 😛

    I know I did. I foresaw everything happening from the moment Bobby Zamora put it in the net - but I found something good on telly and completely forgot to tell everyone.

    Such a beautiful statement: "Liverpool Football Club can confirm that our involvement in proposed plans to form a European Super League has been discontinued. In recent days, the club has received representations from various key stakeholders, both internally and externally, and we would like to thank them for their valuable contributions."

    Reminds me of the time i had a tantrum and got bollocked by my dad, stormed upstairs, packed my massive Head holdall, walked downstairs and declared i was running away. I got to the top of Stockbrook Street (100yds), and thought the bag was heavy. 
     
    my dad made me knock on the door embarrassed for about ten minutes before answering.

    what is going to happen in 5 years time when Barca and United get bored of beating Chelsea, Spurs and Arsenal every week, are they going to form a new "European Mega League" with just the top 6 teams from across Europe..? and then in a few more years they will get bored of that and form a new "European Crazy Amazing League" where just Man United play Barca every week forever and ever..?

    Who made it? Considering Boris gets the assist, more than likely a Wetherspoons loving gammon. Decent effort though 👏🏻

    IIRC Gary Neville commented afterwards as well about accusations of hypocrisy and admitted that whilst the 1992 breakaway did have its downsides football in the UK was in dire straits at the time with hooliganism, rotting or unsafe stadiums, etc and needed change/investment.  
    The money following into the game massively improved infrastructure (stadiums/training facilities), diversifed attendees (more kids and families) and bought the players to create arguably the best league in the world and unlike the proposed ESL kept the pyramid and dreams of the lesser clubs alive - all whilst passing more money down the divisions and into grassroots football than any other country.
    I think both Carragher and Neville acknowledged accusations of hypocrisy but what the ESL is trying to do is on another level and entirely self-serving.
