The end of football as we know it?

Football as we know it is in unprecedented danger. Over the past two days, the rules and laws that make the sport great have been broken. Tradition has been forsaken. History has been forgotten and ignored. However, this is not just about Manchester United. Every football fan is a victim.

Football is nothing without fans

Sir. Matt Busby

The new European “Super League” has been created by those who are blinded by greed. Florentino Perez, the Glazer family, Stan Kroenke, Roman Abramovich, Sheikh Mansour, FSG & Daniel Levy. All of whom are the criminals who are stealing our beloved teams from US, the fans.

Due to the actions of these club owners, the Premier League and UEFA have threatened to ban the respective clubs from their competitions. This means that the teams cannot play in the Premier League, Champions League, Europa League, European Super Cup and the domestic cup competitions. As well as this, the players from these “super” teams would not be allowed to compete in International competitions run by FIFA.

So, not only has this new league completely destroyed the football ‘eco-system’ in England, it has also destroyed the representation of England. They have done this for one reason and one reason only. Money. There has been absolutely no consideration for the fans, for those who support the clubs through thick and thin.

One of the worst aspects about the ESL is the impact it will have on football for everyone. If the ‘Big Six’ get banned from the outlined competitions, how will the remaining teams survive? It’s no secret that the ‘Big Six’ bring in a lot of the revenue for the Premier League. This allows the rest of the clubs to gain more money which they need to survive and compete. Now, they have been abandoned.

After Florentino Perez announced the ESL, the world of football exploded. Managers, fans, players and owners from other clubs all criticised the decision. Jose Mourinho allegedly lost his job from protesting the Super League. The one and only Bruno Fernandes also criticised the move on instagram. Leeds United even wore shirts which read: “Football is for the fans” written on them. But we need more.

The reaction to it is that it’s been damned and rightly so. I’m a Manchester United fan and have been for 40 years of my life but I’m disgusted, absolutely disgusted. I’m disgusted with Manchester United and Liverpool the most!

Gary Neville

Football fans must unite to stop this parasite killing football. You can already see fans from every club coming together to protest. Whether you are a Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal or Tottenham fan. We must stick together. Football is bigger than rivalries, and football is now at stake.
