In Manchester City, Chelsea defections mean that the Super League revolution will not last another day
In the vast history of truly horrific business decisions, there are many private decisions: Blockbuster allows you to buy Netflix for $ 50 million, and the entire newspaper industry can revolutionize the Internet, for example. The nearly four-decade-old standard, which was hugely public, has been New Coke.
We could be a new loser in this derby.
(This dar-bee, by the way, should be pronounced to suit the subject).
Chelsea FC’s decision to withdraw from the Super League competition designed to revolutionize European football on Tuesday could lead to the dissolution of the entire company. The BBC later reported that Manchester City had also chosen to retire. It soon became known that Atletico Madrid were planning to retire, but Chelsea and City can always say that they were the ones who brought this thing to the ground.
These decisions were presented to the Superliga at the end of Sunday and reached less than 48 hours.
Hey, Coca-Cola didn’t acknowledge the failure and started sending out its “Classic” formula for almost three months after the 1985 coup.
If implemented, the Super League would replace the richest and most prestigious UEFA Champions League in world football. The founding members had to be constantly involved, while a smaller team would have to qualify to compete. This constant presence of the richest and most prestigious clubs in England, Spain and Italy angered the football fans because they believed that all teams should qualify for this competition.
The response to the Super League has been very negative, and it seems unlikely that the other 10 members that can be created will be able to move forward, even if at least the stubbornness of the billionaires should never be underestimated.
Liverpool fans hung banners on the outside doors of the club’s Anfield stadium, among other things, proclaiming the club’s death date as “2021”. Fans decorating the cup – the end zone that is so loud in the big games of Anfielde – are removing banners that have taken the place of spectators in the pandemic. The Leeds players wore UEFA Champions League shirts ahead of Monday’s match against the LFC, which read “WIN” under the usual logo of the competition. Sassuolo manager Roberto De Zerbi discussed with his team the possibility of boycotting a Serie A match against AC Milan Super League club AC Milan on Wednesday.
Chels fans staged a massive protest outside Stamford Bridge Stadium. It is impossible to say whether he precipitated the desire to withdraw ownership. But Manchester United fans have spotted it and are planning a similar rally outside of Old Trafford on Saturday evening. They probably won’t have to follow suit. The resignation of Man Wood’s executive vice president Edward Woodward on Tuesday, Sky Sports reported, was another response to the apparent failure of the Super League plan.
Most threatening: FIFA president Gianni Infantino gave a public speech in which he warned Super League clubs: “If some choose to go their own way, they will have to live with the consequences of their choice. They are responsible for their choice. Specifically, that means you are either out. you’re halfway in and half out. That should be very clear. “
This warning reads as confirmed by UEFA President Aleksander Seferin that players from Super League clubs will not be allowed to take part in the four-year European Championship and World Cup, the most famous events that almost every footballer in the world wants.
All this does not guarantee that the creators of the Super League will withdraw the proposal. But they have dropped to 11 clubs. Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain did not want to take part. And other potential entries saw a furious backlash against the creators. It is not the perfect environment to register other possible accesses.
The original goal was to classify 15 founding members and five participants from year to year. The Super League has announced that it has formed only 12 creators, with three top rejections and now two defects after the shortest stay. How can it be a Super League if so few want to participate?
An ant drone only lives for three days. But it looks like that could be longer than the Super League.
