Hi United fans.

Would you be up for a European League at the expense of no Premier League foot ball?

So it's one or the other. Play Juventus, Madrid etc every week but lose the local English games as such.

Would love to hear what fans from other clubs think to see if there is a General consensus one way or the other. Cheers.

I'd prefer to keep the EPL as it is, but the reality is that a breakaway league will happen sooner or later. There's too much money to be made from a euro super league, and trying to stop it, over the long term, is like trying to hold back the tide with a fishing net.

I would rather not but I think it's coming.

Prefer to leave the league as it is. And uefa should find some balls and stamp ut out before it happens.

{Ed002's Note - How would UEFA do that?}

Hey Rover. My answer would be no for a number of reasons.

I like the structure of our League, I love relegation and promotion and that every team has a chance to get to the top division. Look at Huddersfield, Bournemouth, and previously Wigan. They may not be glamorous names but so what? I can’t imagine England not having a League of its top clubs.

The game nowadays is all about making the rich clubs richer, that’s where the Champions’ League format came from; more teams in and a League approach meaning the top teams are more likely to stay in longer. They even keep clubs from the same league apart for as long as they can, it is simply a money making exercise.

I suspect the English League would continue without the top teams if they chose to break away and form a European League but where’s the sense in that? It would become a complete mess, it hasn’t been thought through, it’s yet another “let’s make more money” idea.

Money is the God and greed is there for all to see. The Champions League is now horribly predictable with only a handful of clubs having a chance of winning it. I’m not sure. European League would fare much differently.

I'd personally like to see it but I'm not sure how it would work.
