    Well, thank Christ for that!
    Let's hope this development douses the flames, repairs burnt bridges and hopefully we can get out of this without getting scathed , and get on with winning a cup double this year.

    They clearly didn’t do enough market research before thinking of the league. The whole reason there has been a whole new wave of interest in football in America is because it is run different than American franchise sports. American football fans tune into European football as much or even more so than the MLS.

    this is true - it's brinkmanship now isn't it. but today's statement from the PL doesn't look like one they could easily roll back from - they could kick the 6 out into no man's land and see what happens.  main problem I see for the breakaway clubs is how do they attract another 8 clubs when the football world is dead against this plan.

    Not looking good when Spuds and Le Arse are the ESL attraction, with their great record in Europe

    Time to start celebrating, it's over, were back to the football, and were right in the thick of it all, bring on the FA cup final, the CL semi/final? and a top 3 finish, let the good times roll, and if we lose the lot, so what, we beat the ESL.

    Obviously great news and I’m buzzing but don’t forget that we signed up to it in the first place. Who’s agreed to it? Bruce Buck?

    Agreed. I am done if this happens. Maybe some of the fans will start a new Chelsea club like AFC Wimbledon did. I'd be up for that.

    I'm still reeling from this news and it appears quite complex, so forgive me for any ignorance of the minutia of details. 
    What would you do if you were the premier league? Kicking out the teams that are involved seems obvious, but who will tune in to watch Burnley v Norwich every week? This spells disaster for the premier league, and the clubs are the ones holding all the cards as far as I can see.

    Agree with Neville here.
    The only thing I can possible understand here is that the big clubs want to break free from the corrupt claws of UEFA. That lot have NO right to take the moral high ground in any way whatsoever.

    You know it will be Chelsea v Manchester City in Beijing, Real Madrid v Man Utd in Atlanta, Barcelona v Inter in Sydney etc. Catering to the overseas fans.

    Sutton United for me, although they look like they’re going to win their league and get promoted to the football league for the first time so I’ll just be seen as a glory hunter there too

    The current system is based on merit, if you do well you get promoted, if you finish high enough in the top league or win a cup you get to qualify for Europe.
    Any system that bucks that and is based on historical prestige is well and truly a disgrace.
    There are always means and ways to reduce games if the desire is there yet I feel this is s more about TV revenues.

    It is, PL have said they will ban the clubs if they go ahead to a super league. It’s the premier league or super league.

    It’s infuriating. All the money I’ve spent over the years on ST to watch Chelsea, travelling to London and back every 2 weeks, it’s cost me a fortune being a supporter and I’m sure it’s the same for you. And this is what we get in return? Just feels like a smack in the face and don’t give a f*ck about the fans.
    If this is going ahead I’m done with Chelsea. So greedy and selfish.

    I don't think they understand the tribal rivalries within each country is what drives most of the interest in football. Seeing Chelsea play Barcelona or Juventus is great from time to time but would soon become boring. The same teams play each other in Europe enough as it is but I realise this sh*te is aimed at fans outside of the UK and the broadcast revenue that comes with it.
    And what the end game is here. In time, one or two of the Super League clubs will dominate that league too and then those clubs will demand more from the rest. It feels like they want to get to a point where Real Madrid play Barcelona in Abu Dhabi 30 times a season to flog to the Chinese. 
    Hopefully it's killed stone dead by government and fan opposition and due to the German clubs not signing up for it. One country that hasn't completely prositituted its football.

    Sickening stuff - It's the final death knell of the pretence that we are a club that a fan can identify with in any meaningful way. I would be interested to see a fan survey on this for the clubs allegedly involved, and also willing to bet that a vast, vast majority are dead set against the idea.
    I'd sooner see us get relegated to the non league than see this. I'd find it easier to stomach continuing to support Chelsea in the non league than as part of a cartel.
