Everton: Fans rage over ‘Big Six’ update

Everton: Fans rage over ‘Big Six’ update - Everton News

Lots of Everton fans have been left to rage as an update emerged on the so-called ‘Big Six’.

In a joint statement from the Premier League and FA which was relayed by Sky Sports, the six clubs in the English top flight, namely Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, who secretly agreed to play in a breakaway European Super League (ESL), will pay a combined £22m to draw a line under their row with the division.

Would Everton have joined the ESL?

Yes

Yes

No

No

They have also agreed to an additional £25m fine and a potential 30-point deduction for any similar plans to breakaway in the future.

Given the severity of what they were trying to do, which was to effectively kill the English football pyramid by guaranteeing themselves European qualification every season, and the fact that the owners are all very rich anyway, a £22m combined fine does seem very little punishment.

“That’s a hard punishment. A total joke I think the EPL have bottled it. Should have taken points of them and banned from European football for a season. The dirty six just do what they like. # ban the dirty six.”
