    it isn't a sport either if you buy success by spending 1000 millions on players and get the favors of the UEFA not punishing your club for violating the fair play principles, but yeah, Guardiola, we know your sh*t doesn't stink, right?

    Bro i feel the clubs are directly responsible for the situation they're in. It's them who've allowed player wages to sky-rocket. It's them who've allowed transfer fees to sky rocket. Most of them have no Financial Discipline or Diligence. How are players allowed to earn 300,000€\£ every week as direct Salary?!? How?!? In what world is that ok?!? Bear in mind I'm not talking about Messi/Ronaldo/Suarez here. We as fans need to have this conversation because it's the elephant in the room. Let's consider Liverpool as an example simply because they have players who "arguably" have had the highest work-rate/output in the last 3/4 years under Klopp in terms of distance run per game and other statistics. Who in Liverpool gets paid above 250k directly as Salary? Only VvD and Salah. The rest them earn very reasonably when compared to other clubs. There was a study done on this comparing the salaries of players at different clubs. Imo, Liverpool is one of the most financially disciplined clubs in Europe. Let's put aside the fact that Jon Henry was one of the main party to initiate this ESL. The rising Players Wages and Salaries is the main underlying issue that's at heart of this ESL that nobody wants to address. Cristiano makes about 100 million because of sponsorships every year. Who decided to give Messi 500 million as a direct component of Salary?!? Who was the donkey who made this decision?!?? Now that Barca is in fukin Debt they are planning to monopolize the competition along with other Idiots. Believe me as football fans (not club fans) this is a conversation that NEEDS to be had. Players need to be paid a fixed component of Salary, and a Variable Bonus Component based on their performance output ( Goals, Saves, Clean Sheets, Assists, Pre-Assists, Chances/Opportunities Created, Key Passes, etc) This Conversation needs to be had sooner or later. Those fuking owners and executives are fuking incompetent who dress up in fancy suits. Dortmund, Liverpool, Leister, Athletico Madrid are some of the most Financially Disciplined and Well -run clubs. You don't have divas & Super-models like Neymar, Pogba, Ozil, etc. I'm not even going to address Rmadrid and Barca because they're a disaster. That Bartameo idiot gave Messi half a Billion as Direct Salary.

    Football in England is no longer a sport, money changed all that, it is simply a business and has all the flaws of business. It looks to me that the referees are being bought because the decisions they make are clearly not the true rules. For instance Sheffield United were playing another team and United scored a goal which was cancelled because the right winger had his toe over the goal line. Now unless he is interfering with play he cannot be offside and he was nowhere near the ball.But that was only one of many incidents where certain teams get free kicks because one of their players dived after losing the ball.

    The governing bodies of UEFA and FIFA have too much power over soccer as well. This is always bad because they never consider the interests of the clubs where the players earn their money and play the most part of the season. They decide who plays when and where. Not acceptable.. i think that clubs foremost MUST have a say in international matches a other duties their players have.. they must find common ground because everything is about money nowadays..

    The super League was a horrible idea. That said, it's not like guardiola is that much better: he works for people who are so rich they can pretty much guarantee his team will play champions league. And even in his previous experiences (bayern munich: by far the best club in its country; barcelona with messi at his peak and without the current economic crisis) it was the same.

    Football clubs shoud not have accepted playing with no fans, and without offering compromise for that key esue. They should fight for getting back fans on stadiums, at least 10% of their capacities, with a goal of saving football's main purpose. For instance, clubs can mark seats on whitch is alowed to seat, if distance and restrictions are problem. Stadiums are wide enough to implement that. Not to fight for super league without - in real - audience. No point indeed. Not all the clubs can live this way, and that new league might make it even worse, for the 'smaller' clubs, perhaps. Anyway, the best and the most attractive football is been played in lower leagues. Just my opinion.
