This is a messy, grubby financial thing again, but it's breaking this evening that there's to be a possible breakaway from our "big 6" plus 3 from Spain and 3 from Italy.
I believe they plan to run a competition midweek instead of the Champion's league and open it up to 15 permanent members and to 5 invited teams each season.
Obviously the timing is vile, the plan is anti-competitive and deeply unpopular with the authorities.
Said authorities appear to be ready to hit the nuclear button if the clubs don't back down, but there may be a statement from the signed up clubs this evening.
The problem here is that the idea keeps resurfacing and the foreign owners who want a franchise competition aren't going away.
Where will this end?
