The last time we discussed the European Super League on here, supporting it as we did, we were greeted by a tonne of abuse, as was the idea in general from the luminary pundits like Gary Neville, who of course isn’t now being paid by Qatar this world cup having condemned that too…
But the idea never went away, and UEFA’s true corruption has shone like a beacon the past 6 months to a year, and now Rangers have been effectively invited to a revised version, along with them from across the city.
And quite clearly, we at Ibrox Noise would jump at the chance to be part of this.
Scottish football is dead, and has been for a long long time, and we were always in favour of a rival league to the overpowered Champions League, with the idea resurfacing because of the even further overpowered Premier League.
That’s right, the source of the main objections to the ESL came from the likes of Neville and the PL, people invested in the global monopoly the PL has now become – the murder of football hasn’t come from an ESL proposal, but in the ludicrous sums spilling around in England.
And Rangers will never be invited to join football down south, so the only way our club can grow is by joining a revamped ESL.
We’re completely for it – end of the day we want Rangers to be successful, and no one is going to tell us they’re happy playing St Mirren every week – a new take on the Atlantic league is essentially the idea behind the ESL, and the money in it would be big.
Think of LIV golf – for all the world’s hypocritical hatred of the new golf tour, it’s attracted most of the big names, and an ESL would do the same. And Rangers cannot afford to say no if the idea does come to fruition and it is formed.
So yes, we’ll see how this new proposal goes, and yes, we’re well aware UEFA are scrambling with their lawyers. No wonder they’re scared, they don’t want to lose their financial monopoly.
