Episode 98: The Straight Shootin View Episode 54 - European Super League & money grabbing hypocrisy

The Premier League 'Big 6', Juventus, Real Madrid reportedly signing up to a breakaway European Super League, is this the future of football, or purely a money & power grab by big clubs? In this episode Straight Shootin' LJA discusses the recently revealed plans for a midweek European Super League featuring 12 founder teams, 6 of which are Premier league clubs (Arsenal, Spurs, Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United) along with Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus, AC Milan, Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan. SSLJA looks at the potential negative ripple effect that could majorly affect Grass Roots Football and its future, which has already been in the balance and also how this will effect fans who have generally come out against these proposals due to the knock on effect it could have to domestic competitions. SSLJA also looks at UEFA, the Premier League and English FA reactions and if even they can stop the breakaway league happening, especially as they (along with TV Broadcasters such as Sky Sports etc) have basically facilitated this being able to happen, by letting clubs have too much power overall. SSLJA also posits the theory that it could be a ploy or scare tactic, in opposition to UEFA plans to restructure their competitions and dissects comments by people such as Gary Neville who works for Sky Sports & is critical of the breakaway league proposals, but won't criticise his employers for their role in the genesis of the Premier League which is similar to this situation.
