ed 002 surly the top 6 cannot breakaway can they can you see it happenning and if it does what do you think will happen to the premier league i'm devestated if this goes ahead you would think 100 milion a season for these teams would be enough but obv not and what will happen to to the euros in june if uefa tell the players they can't represent there countrys worrying times ahead don't understand why they need to change it just keep it the way it is.

{Ed002's Note - There is a detailed explanation of what the options are but they all point at progression to a pan-european league.

A good question about the remnants. Football needs to decide what sort of restructuring is required. Putting aside any "breakaway" or counter proposal, my fears have always been the vast number of professional clubs there are in England well below the Premier League. I hold a reasonably strong view in terms of the need to restructure football in Europe in any case. Previously I have said that the eventual "breakaway pan-European league" would force the restructuring of many of the national leagues, possibly resulting in a British league with perhaps only a couple of professional tiers and then regionalised amateur leagues below that. Now we have a situation that will change the financial paradigm and may make clubs and authorities look at the situation with lower tier sides regardless.

Financially I do not see that so many professional sides can be sustained within the sport which, like it or not, will see more and more money going in to the highest levels of the game. Governments will ensure that grassroots sport get funding but everything in the middle (Southern, Northern, Conference, Division 2, Scottish Divisions 1-3, League of Wales will not get the funding needed to continue on any sort of professional basis. For me, clubs should already recognise this and put their efforts in to getting their finances in order to see if they can make it to a British professional league that will need to flourish without perhaps six sides that have eventually gone down the pan-European route - and have gone for good (it would be two or perhaps three initially) or even separation from the Premier League and Championship.

Clubs like Accrington Stanley will need to carry on as amateurs or face extinction (yet again) like Bury. Recently Hartlepool has been struggling - again it needs to adapt. The mighty Third Lanark have started their long journey back to the top - it can be done. These are all proud clubs with a history.

The game has changed significantly and will continue to do so whether the supporters of certain clubs like it or not. Football at the highest level is big business and attracts the sponsorship it does because the sponsors wish to tap in to the disposable income of the fans and ride the back of the advertising that flows naturally from the success some clubs achieve. Long gone are the days of the cloth-capped, hobnailed-booted, chimney sweep making his way, rattle in hand, to cheer on his team at Anfield on a Saturday afternoon. I have explained that there will be changes, probably within the next 4 to 6 years, which will force the restructuring of all of the leagues in Europe and likely do away with the likes of UEFA. You will have the opportunity to see the likes of Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus and the other major European sides play in week-on-week regular competition at The Emirates, St James Park, Stamford Bridge or wherever. Fans of the sides who take the plunge will have the opportunity to visit cities such as Milan, Barcelona, Munich, etc. every couple of weeks to watch their team play. If you want to don your cloth cap, have a pint of wallop with your chums before going off to the local match through the grim, wet and cobbled streets of the Northwest of England where there is smog, dead & dying pit ponies laying on the street and only chips and fried curry to eat., perhaps one of the sides from the suburbs will have survived so the Liverpool and Everton supporters can go and watch them?

This will be a case of getting with the game. I will try to referred to this as the "Post Apocalyptic Zombie Scenario" from now on.}

ed 002 thank you for that great read just one more question if any premier league clubs have signed up for this and say it gets rejected or they backtrack on there plans due to fans and football players not happy can you see the premier league hitting them with fines or even points and also i just watched gary neville on sky and he spoke for every fan including myself there shame if this happens.

{Ed002's Note - No. There have been several attempts before, including one from LFC and MU last year, and the Premier league are aware that three PL clubs are involved with the “elite sides” European sides that discuss many different issues including a potential breakaway.}

So we all know the plan is to form a super League and leave the prem when they are ready. Boot them out now and kick them out of Europe (ones still in) and they can sort the new league out immediately. I love the way they say they are staying in the league as currently it suits them to still take the riches in offer from the premier League TV deal! At least that way every other federation and club can move on and have the impact. Essentially though surely outside of these 'top' clubs all other clubs will eventually become amatuer or act as feeder clubs so what's the point? This is all about money there is no ontentioyto improve the game. At least when the premier League came in they improved the money and the standard of the game making it the best league in the world and didn't close shop so promoyand relegation still existed.

{Ed002's Note - You are missing the point that none of this is really new and there certainly will not be any kneejerk reactions.}

19 Apr 2021 11:40:08
Thanks ed. Appreciate none of this is new as has been mentioned on and off for a while now but we all know eventually the plan will be to leave the premier League permanently so why not leave now? Reason they won't leave now is because the money isn't all there yet and they need this new super League to take off and prove the concept. I am sure it will succeed so why not expel them now so we can try and adjust and make the premier League work without them? It's unlikely it will survive without them but we need to try otherwise us football fans might as well just give up now and start supporting Madrid or Barcelona or change sports entirely.

19 Apr 2021 11:51:08
Brilliant explanation thanks 002.

19 Apr 2021 12:46:32
in my humble opinion, those that have signed up for this should be demoted instantly as this is a breach of PL rules. let them have the cream of super league, but let us " minnows " benefit from their absence. a fine will be a waste of time, so points deduction at the least is surely the answer.

It’s no longer inevitable, years of scheming gone in 48 hours.

Rumour coming out that Josh King will sign for Galatasary in the summer, Carlo can't be impressed with him.

{Ed002's Note - Josh King (S) Out of contract in the summer and his agents are looking at options in Germany and Turkey. Galatasaray see him as their preferred option over Christian Benteke.}

Agree3 Disagree0

15 Apr 2021 12:15:30
Thanks Ed.

15 Apr 2021 19:56:34
Are Galatasary trying to sign a whole team of free agents from EPL?

12 Apr 2021 19:58:25
Heard that Brands is looking at some Norwegian kid from AZ called Evjen. No idea if it's true. You heard anything Ed?

{Ed002's Note - I don’t know but a lot of PL clubs have looked at him over the past year.}

So Mina is looking to leave. He's a weird one isn't he, sometimes I watch him and think "what a machine he is" other times I think "oh he's Heitinga on steroids". Wouldn't be disappointed if he left. I think most important players to keep in the summer are Godfrey, Digne, Richarlison and DCL.

Speaking of which, Ed 002, do you expect Moise Kean to leave in the summer?

{Ed002's Note - I think Kean will get the move he wants in the summer.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed 02 how much do u think we'd get for kean. Could you see going for Daryl dike lad on loan at barnsley.

{Ed002's Note - I would think Everton would look for about €30M. Not so sure about DD.}

12 Apr 2021 23:04:58
Thanks ed thought they might ask for some more for kean. think next striker needs be someone from lower league somone hungry there are some good players out there in championship.

10 Apr 2021 14:26:18
Interesting story on Takehiro Tomiyasu this morning. Young Japanese defender doing well for Bologna - CB/ RB. Could be a shrewd Mina replacement - would certainly gain some attention for the club from Japan.
Anyone know if he's any good?

Agree0 Disagree0

Andrea Belotti on the radar, be a good addition.

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath just yet. There have been enquiries from two clubs - and at this time Everton are not involved.}

Agree7 Disagree0

ED02 have you got a sharkpod in the pipeline for us bud and quick question according to a journalist called Duncan Castles Wolves are looking to sell quite a few players Like Neves, Traore and Neto would we be interested in any of these I would love Neves and Neto but can't see us affording them.

{Ed002's Note - There will be be a sharkopod in the coming weeks. I don't know what has been said but I expect Traore will be available and Klopp has had his tongue down his throat in the past and could look to him. I don't think they will look to sell Neves. The advantage Neto has is that he could prove a cost efficient alternative to Sancho and Grealish the Manchester clubs having watched him but his agent wanting a deal with another club. I would not expect any to be moving to Everton.}

Cheers ED02 will look forward to the sharkpod and the klopp having his tongue down the throat made me laugh.

07 Apr 2021 16:54:13
Just question for any of the eds really just wondered on you're thoughts if everton don't qualify for Europe league can you see the likes of dcl Richarlison or even digne leaving I know no player is bigger then the club but to loose them would be a big loss in my opinion.

{Ed002's Note - I would hope not and I don't see Everton looking to sell either.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2021 18:43:25
Digne only recently signed a new contract so not likely to be moving on. Don’t think anyone would be too surprised if Richy left.

07 Apr 2021 19:15:16
Papers say Mina wants out?

{Ed002's Note - The papers are correct. It was always going to be the case.}

08 Apr 2021 17:12:54
No too worried about this, think we will make our money back on him and he’s on a big wage too. Godfrey and Keane look a better long term partnership, Holgate was excellent for large parts of last season and Branthwaite looks a really good young player.

{Ed002's Note - Everrton won't get their money back on him.}
