just  a thought if the ESL went ahead and the 6 English clubs get booted out  of the Premiership

would 6 clubs move up from The National League  to fill the void  left by them.

it would have been interesting if we had a full squad in a normal season  to see if we could have finished top 6

 FSA:

Superleague: the fight for change starts now!


It's been a tumultuous week - and one that could change football in this country forever.

What's become clear to the country at large, and something that we've known for a long time at the FSA, is that appeasement of football’s richest clubs doesn’t work. The vultures circle, they’re always after more and they only get stronger when you feed their greed.

This time the cabal of billionaire owners overplayed their hand and their rapacious appetite for more united an unprecedented array of opponents. Fans across the entire game, players, managers, pundits, clubs, leagues, football associations across the continent, politicians, Prime Ministers and governments. Even the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared their concerns.

The past week of white hot anger has killed domestic involvement in the Super League but that doesn’t mean fans can take their foot off the accelerator – a return to the status quo is unacceptable and will only allow these unscrupulous owners to regroup.

On Monday the Government announced the launch of its fan-led review and it is vital that all efforts are poured into that, with supporters front and centre, in order to rebalance the power structure of the domestic game.

There have been numerous reviews in the past with recommendations that football ignored or diluted. That cannot happen again. Reports suggested that the Prime Minister was considering a ‘legislative bomb’ to stop the involvement of domestic sides in the Super League.

And last night the broad 'Terms of Reference' for the fan-led review were published by the Government, and the scope was welcomed by the FSA. Our chair Malcolm Clarke said: "The owners of the big six have shown how powerful they are – their plans were so awful that within 24 hours a fan-led review that will look at the very power structures of football was announced. It’s the best own goal we’ve ever seen.

"We welcome the release of the Terms of Reference and look forward to supporters being at the absolute heart of this review. The status quo cannot continue and we will demand change."

The idea of the European Super League is dead, at least for now, but the hard work to ensure that it can never return is only just beginning, and the first step in that process is demonstrating that there is political support for the much-needed reforms to our game.

Ian Mearns, Labour MP for Gateshead, has introduced an Early Day Motion (EDM) before Parliament calling for support from MPs who back the FSA’s reform proposals, and to make sure that fans are put front and centre of the upcoming fan-led review of football governance.

We want individual fans and supporters’ groups to contact their local MPs to sign EDM 1765, to ensure that the promised fan-led review of football governance delivers real results for football fans on the things that matter to us – giving fans a position in boardrooms and putting them at the heart of decision-making processes within the men’s and women’s game. Measures that will give fans a voice in determining key issues like ticket prices, kick-off times, distribution of finances and funding of the grassroots game.

Good to hear that Mark Hearle is onboard with all the changes that are likely to the fore now that this Super League has been kicked into touch.  These big clubs might wish they hadn’t opened this particular can of worms.   The German model of no one person having more than a 49% stake in a Club could come back to bite not just the big 6 on the ass.
