I am sure Klopp livid wouldn't be surprised the Press officer will shut down any questions regarding this in the press conferences
So we forget about Bob Paisley and Bill Shankly and Kenny Dalglish all those trophy’s all those players all those managers all those matches and all those fans just get forgotten
J C:
Have always solidly believed that our great club would always do what's right in situations like this, no matter how many other clubs around us did the opposite. It upsets me massively to see that is not the case this time, would not blame Jürgen if he had second thoughts about his future with us.
fans wont ever walk alone but fsg did remember WE'LL GET OUT AT THE END OF THE STORM
“We have joined Europe’s leading clubs” - the arrogance in that statement

Dexter Robinson
Dexter Robinson:
Do you know what the big problem is here. Not the super league but the fact that football has got to big money wise. It’s time to rescue it. It’s disgusting. Football needs a regression go back to a top two format champions league ends and it’s a straight knockout comp some with the uefa and stop playing FA cup semi finals at Wembley. This football capitalism needs to stop. I could go on about how football has sold out to this American capitalist ideal the ESL is a prime example and is wrong. I’m in tears this morning I’m gutted

Those 12 clubs is whose has payed most of the wages for players in world football. They are the one who actually pay for other clubs too . So when they player get injured, who gonna pay for them ? When their player go to international team and get injured, who gonna pay for them ? During the time of World Cup and Euro , the wages of players are still payed by the clubs but the money goes all into Uefa and fifa pocket . Who has responsibility for 1,2 billion euro they have lost in last 1 year ? I don't like the idea of Super league but UEFA and Fifa are corrupted and they need to change too . This is the Push could make them change

I'm sure there was unrest and fear when the premier League was formed and when European compatitions started.
I am supporting Liverpool for like more than 20 years and some fans like, oooh, I am not supporting Liverpool anymore but probably are kids in the kindergarten. I do not think this american something who owns the club will make a such a crappy decision. Knowing the risks and all boycotts, I am sure that he will be ashamed of this crappy decision. Liverpool is multi billion club, he wants probably trillion or what?

Just think about it, if we did not join and the superleague went ahead, we would miss out on the financial side. We wound not be able to compete with them anymore. Regardless of talks about tradition and stuff, if this goes thru we would miss out. So it is the right decision from liverpool to join. If it does not work out we hav nothing to lose.
Kingsley Ihiama
Kingsley Ihiama:
I really don't see why people are against it...since the domestic/champions league competitions would still continue.. (or wouldn't these 12 clubs not participate in CL anymore?) Isn't it kinda similar to the EUROS and the European League of Nations competition?? (I still don't get why the latter was created) My only worry however is, it would put alot of pressure on the players of the participating they would be playing more games per week but It would create more advantage in the domestic competitions for other teams to win their local trophies. But it makes no sense in the fact that, the same teams would be playing the CL.
In the end, l don't think it's needed.

Angelo Mathews:
I love this concept man as it would revolutionize football and become the no.1 sport in the whole world. I am from a country where football is dominant but people really don't know about the domestic leagues...I am sure this new Super League would make football more pouplar in the whole world.

We could see a lot of interesting matches if all the big teams play their own league containing only the champions; that would be a better way to decide the real champions of europe.

Tbh football is getting very boring because of these domestic leagues, most people only watch champions you really love to watch ligue1, bundesliga?...I know it would harm domestic leagues but for the sake of football, it should be done and it would be done someday to make football more popular globally (people outside europe gets confused with all these domestic leagues, europea league, champions league; that's also a reason people don't watch football much as it should be).
