Football / Re: European Super League Thread
« on: April 20, 2021, 05:37:50 PM »
Deeks, what you talking about Covid skeptics?  I can't even understand the juxtaposition of that statement.  Anyway, Champions League is being reformed to include more teams and more money,,,which is what many of the big clubs have been asking UEFA to do.  Make CL bigger than it is but they have been sitting on their ass doing nothing.  The six EPL teams are out so this thing is dead in the water.  Yes, they might try to resurrect it again if the new CL format doesn't work, but for now, they both sides will get something out of it.  Every European club that has been bought by an American owner had the opportunity to say no, but they didn't.  As far as I'm concerned, the owner's of the club to spend, invest, etc however they choose with the understanding that there are consequences to their actions.

Chelsea already looking to back out and I'm sure more to come.  This ESL is not going to happen.

I repeat, it's a bluff.  This morning the clubs are meeting with domestic leagues & UEFA.  You have players voicing their displeasure about the move.  Twelve clubs playing each other repeatedly doesn't appeal to anybody.  I believe the end result is going to be a revised Champions League with more clubs playing in it but with a certain number of clubs (based on domestic league positions) receiving byes in the first couple of rounds.  All it takes is for a reasonable number of "big" players to stand up, along with the countries' governments, to put a serious dent in the ESL plans.

This is the biggest bluff in football.  The negative PR and the possibility of players not being allowed to play in the WC could derail this venture.  I for one don't know how FIFA could ban a player for his/her owner's actions.  Dock points, forfeit games, sure but preventing players from playing in the WC is ludicrous.  The audacity of FIFA to play the morality card is a joke and that goes for UEFA too.  My guess is that the Champions League will have a larger number of teams and more revenue will be poured into it.  That's what the leagues have been wanting anyway...a more lucrative Champions League.  I am a Man United fan and I would be very disappointed if this ESL happens and they join it.  I will still wear the colours but with a heavy heart.

The majority of the questions that will posed to WW has one commonality\, funding.  FIFA already says it's going to withhold funding so where is the money going to come from to address all these concerns?  Who will sponsor a football team that has been ostracized by the governing board of football?  I applaud anybody who stands for principle, but when the outcome is detrimental to the current and future of our football, it is time to rethink, and live to fight another day.  2006 feels like a lifetime ago, sadly.

What funding ? And for what ? Certainly not for players, they weren't paid, not for coaches or tech directors, whose contracts were not honoured, not for staff who regular work months with payment. Not For international competitions, presently suspended. So how much funding the administrators require for their personal projects to still end up in debt ? Anyway, back to to the Circle of ever Dependence that we may drink from the fountain of stagnation and regression as those around us forge ahead. It's what we have grown used to. I guess there is some measure of comfort in the devils that we know.
What funding? FIFA FUNDING, which allows TTFA administrative staff and national coaches to be paid.  Isn't that the crux of the issue?  The mismanagement of money for football operations.

Let's be honest, neither DJW nor WW did an admirable job when they were in charge.

You comparing 4 months to 4 years ?


In 4 months, questionable contracts to Terry Fenwick (he dictated his contract), Peter Miller, Ramesh Ramdhan nd the sponsorship with AVEC (which he was the only one who knew about it).  He inherited a pile of rubbish but he added gasoline and lit the match.

Fifa bullying backfires
By Philippe Auclair (josimarfootball.com)

With all due respect Mr. Auclair, you really believe FiFA lost in this battle?  It is not even a war because one fighting with a machine gun and the other have a cutlass.  There was never any intention for WW and co. to remove the suit.  They were given ample time to do so and chose to submit, as you mentioned, 2 minutes after the deadline (definition - the latest time or date by which something should be completed).  It was an insult to FiFA and the footballing nation.  We all know that FiFA has their own skeletons but the rules explicitly states that the action taken by United TTFA is prohibited.  As a member of the FiFA, you signed up for all the rules that apply.  I hardly think that this action taken by United TTFA will inspire more nations to do the same when they fell wronged by FiFA.  As far as CONCACAF goes, the window is open for us to participate which appears to me as an olive branch.  Let's be honest, neither DJW nor WW did an admirable job when they were in charge.  To United TTFA..time to swallow your pride and put the advancement of our youth at the forefront.

If WW really wanted to avoid the suspension they could have submitted 23 mins before the deadline and not 23 minutes after.  Furthermore, if WW was so sure FIFA was going to ban us anyway, why bother to submit the withdrawal.  You thought they were bluffing and they lowered the boom! What exactly was the mindset behind that?  No logical thought process went into their court case.  Don't get me wrong, DJW is another fool who should never have any involvement in TT football ever again, and bears some responsibility for where we are today, but WW is the one that took us over the proverbial cliff.  WW, if you really believe that you are doing the right thing then you are either in denial or the biggest fool.  I hope that you are in denial

We all know FIFA have their corruption issues but this rubbish lies squarely on TTFA.  How could an organization not pay coaches for months?  How could we send the women's team to Concacaf games in the US with $500?  Is that FIFA's fault? NO!  The deadline was 3pm but they submitted it at 3:23pm.  That was no accident, that was sending a message that they don't give **it about TT football and the FIFA (THE GOVERNING BOARD).  Until we find someone who is more interested in the health of the game in TT and not in personal gain, we are going to watch more countries succeed and surpass us.

so when them karate men bow to each other before a fight, thats not respect?

Sometimes I think we forget a virtue called humility.

Trini, notice when they bow in karate, both men/women do it. Respect for each other. It was a weak move but I don't blame him, needs more experience at a higher kevel to understand.

Better scorline than what it could have been. Firstly, how can the backline be so high up and stretched when you are playing against the likes of Messi abd di Maria?Out of position most of the night. Not sure why Molino doesn't start and I don't want to hear about acclimation/jet lag. Had several days to deal with it. He has to be consistently starting for TnT. Too good to be warming bench. Lastly, you never bow to an opponent before a game. That's not respect, that's disrespecting yourself. You can kiss his behind ater if you want but not before. That's a problem for our players, they are not around enough top flight players to understand what being a true professional is about.
