Big news has swept throughout the Transfer Tavern today, bringing in opinions from a range of supporters, in possibly the biggest news story to break through the bar since our landlord first opened the doors.
The Sun has revealed the biggest sides in English football have secretly met with American billionaire Stephen Ross in London to discuss the prospect of a ‘European Super League’- which may shake-up English football massively.
Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City were all in attendance, to discuss an idea which could see England’s elite five break away from the UEFA Champions League.
United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck, Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis, City’s chief executive Ferran Soriano and Liverpool’s Ian Ayre were all pictured leaving a famous London hotel, after intriguing talks.
The proposition would see the top clubs leave the Premier League and instead join up with the biggest sides around Europe, which would cut out the risks of missing out on a top-four finish and the prestigious European football that comes with it.
Whilst the reports have led to a lot of discussions in the bar, our landlord feels there’s a long way to go and he simply cannot see it happening as he states the backlash from the supporters would be extremely telling.
