Farhad Moshiri On European Super League

Farhad Moshiri has condemned the European Super League as “not football anymore” and called on the Premier League to deduct points from the clubs involved.

Speaking with talkSPORT, Everton’s majority shareholder said: “Never, never [On whether Everton would join the European Super League if invited].

“Every facet of it is against the very idea of British football. Football clubs are community assets. They belong to fans and their communities.

“This just takes the romance of football away. You want to see Liverpool and Everton play. It’s something which makes the game just a money game. It’s not football anymore.

“I think the Premier League should deduct points from these clubs. This is six clubs attacking the very heart of the Premier League and I think they should be disciplined. That’s what I would do. They should have discussed it with the Premier League – they should have received a consensus. It’s a system that has worked for many years. The Champions League is the super league.

“The Premier League need to discipline clubs. The Premier League has a constitution. They need to treat powerful clubs as severely as poorer clubs

“I think football is about competition – when you watch West Brom beat Chelsea – this is football. Every club can outperform. On Saturday, 11 players against 11 players. A club like Leeds can go down and come back and draw with Liverpool, this is football. To deprive this competition, devalues the game.”

This sums up the difference between our owners and the greedy RS ones

indeed, not even people’s own assets (such as houses) belong to them when Big Red are involved.

They’ll hoover them up as well to keep their wheels turning

Only complaint is he doesn't go far enough.

Kick them out of the league and domestic competitions.

They're all newcomers anyway the so called big 6 - none of them was founder members of the Football League. Let them go and the game will prosper with the backing of true football fans proud of their teams and their community.

Yep. Actually a 30 point immediate deduction effective from now should be considered. Arsenal would be relegated and potentially Spurs. Could only see City come out of that in the top 4 (hell they could probably still win it they're that far superior a team to all the others in the league).

Not a bad idea. And if they keep on with it. Bin them

I hate that this is on my mind. But I have to ask - do we believe him when he says we’d never join? Do we think that if we would have been invited to this, that Moshiri really would have said no? I don’t know the answer, but I think it’s worth considering. It’s easy for all of us supporters outside the Silly Six to point our fingers, but how many of our clubs would have done the same thing given the chance?

I’d love to know whether the Everton board was actually approached - I’ve not see this question asked.
and before someone says why would we.... well look at who is backing us...
