Not suggesting I would like to see it happen, but the general format of the following might be the best shot:

One or two Super Leagues consisting of the best teams in Europe playing each other 2x times a season with a winner and relegation spots. 

The rest of the domestic leagues carries on as normal - but the teams that are promoted to the super league are the Champions League winners and Europa League winners. (So, the winner of the CL for the following season competes in Super League 1 and the winner of the Europa League in Super League 2)

Have a w*** on that, Infantino!

What if the champions league winners come from a different country to the  relegated club?

Scenario: If Man City get relegated from Super League 1, they f*** off back to the PL and if Celtic win the CL, they play in Super League 1 (:anguish:).

Possible solution: The Super League is to finish x weeks before the conclusion of the domestic season in order to 'give notice' to the PL clubs that a fourth relegation spot would be 'up for grabs'. :lol:

I would have thought there's no reasons for the clubs to "break away" from their national leagues. They could maintain a presence in the PL (Liga, Serie A et al) but focus their energies on the Super League. All of those clubs could afford maintain a 25 man Super League squad and a national league squad comprised of reserves and fringe players. Imagine a Chelsea PL team of all their loan players! Whilst Hazard is doing it in the Super League, Loftus-Cheek could be playing first-team football...

The obvious reply is for the leagues to tell them to do one. But would they? They could sell a rights package that was still "intact" if diminished. The remaining clubs would be happy to sign off on a league in which the best five teams are brought closer to the pack. Less money, sure, but they agree to less, or have a lot less forced on them.

Unreal to see it all spelled out like that.

Quote
Apparently, companies like Etihad in Abu Dhabi wait for the Abu Dhabi United Group (ADUG), the holding company that belongs to Sheikh Mansour and which also owns Manchester City, to wire them money. That money is then "routed through the partners and they then forward onto us," wrote Finance Director Andrew Widdowson in an email. That, at least, is how things were done in 2015: At the time, the deal with Etihad was bringing in 67.5 million pounds annually. But Chief Financial Officer Chumillas emphasized in an email to Pearce: "Please note that out of those 67.5m pounds, 8m pounds should be funded directly by Etihad and 59.5 by ADUG.

FFP rules have always meant big clubs can get bigger by just agreeing to more sponsorship, small clubs with restricted income like Newcastle will never compete, I dont see how any of the current FFP rules have been broken here

:lol: 'deceived'. Didn't the general public call it out as dodgy as soon as the insanely high 'sponsorships' were announced? I'm sure UEFA had no idea, though.

Seriously? They are amending sponsorship agreements after the fact and funneling money from the club's owners through a sponsor and into the club. They'd be happy to admit to you that they are breaking the rules because they don't give a f***. What is UEFA going to do?

In a sense, if both parties know what is going on it's essentially a completely legal bribe.

While it is 'reality' at the moment, I can never get used to reading and hearing things like the above, where the sentence "Small clubs like Newcastle United" is written.

If you supported Newcastle United through the 1990s and 2000s, we were a fabulously rich 'big' club (whatever your definition) so it is difficult to accept casually and routinely written statements like the above.
