My plan for the future of european football!

1. All domestic european competitions should be banned or played with reserve players


2. There will be two all european superleagues. One superleague will be double round-robin tournament (30 rounds) with 16 best teams in europe (Barcelona, Real, City, Liverpool, Bayern, Juventus, PSG + 9 other top teams). Second superleague will have 16 same teams as superleague one and will be played as two-legged knockout tournament (home and away basis) with 4 rounds (round of 16, quarterfinal, semifinal and final).


3. At the end of the season winners of two superleagues will play a single superfinal match on neutral ground to decide who is the european superchampion of that season. If both superleagues have same champion he will simply be declared as superchampion and superfinal match will not be played.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

Great idea! Just one minor adjustment. If both superleagues have the same champion then the team will play itself in the final (team divided by drawing lots). The winner will be declared Super-Duper-Champions and play as a separate entity in the following season.

It would basically turn European football into NBA/NFL. Also I wonder who could "ban" those domestic leagues from existing? King Viktor I, the emperor of the Hungaro-Romanian Empire who has invaded the rest of Europe?

There should at least be some promotion/relegation system from domestic leagues.

Why not have both local leagues and this European competition only shorter? Ie. Why disturb the status quo?

If anything, football suffers from monopolization of the top teams vs the smaller teams of the top leagues and the smaller leagues, that had more access to European competition (if you are Romanian eg. Steaua), and this idea makes that worse

European Superleague is just a matter of very few years now. It is inevitable.

Whether we like it or not.

Nothing is inevitable. Not saying it won’t happen, but they’ve been saying it’s imminent for two decades now.

I strongly dislike it anyway. Turning the Champions Cup (mostly) into a challenge between four-five leagues is bad enough.

Inevitable is just the mess which will follow the stubborness of few clubs in creating one.

Imagine when Juve, Bayern or PSG (why he is in this list anyways) discover they will have to give up their anual league trophy to win the super european leaguue once a decade if much...

Don't see why you would have to give up anything. In theory you could have domestic league matches every weekend and European league every Wed.

Not that much different from now, except a few more matches (~two times as many in Europe maybe).

I think it is imminent from what I have been reading the past few months. Btw, mainly driven from the Southern teams (Italy and Spain). UK and Germany are happy with their domestic leagues.

You would need Thanos to snap his finger and add a few weeks to the year as well.

Two groups of 8 with 14 matches and then semi final and final. Would be 17 in total. Currently it is 13.

There are ways to do it if they want to.

4 extra games, one each week is already an extra month, Tiger. It is not like there is no real life example of how this happens, since it is basically what happened here when the state leagues started to be replaced by the national league and we still have both and our players usually play more games than players in europe, we have less time for injury recovering, less vacation, pre-season time to prepare the teams, less time to pratice during the games... This would hinder the quality of the teams a lot and also the performance of the players. It's just not worth/feasible.

I rarely watch domestic leagues and that is the reason why I want champions league/superleague matches every week (at least 35 such matches per season). If we have additional time for domestic matches than good, if no such time than give them up and good again. Champions league with only 13 matches looks now like some kind of secondary event to domestic football and I want an opposite, I want to have main focus on champions league/superleague with possible domestic football as secondary event or second hand shop.

I dont see whats wrong with NBA/NFL. Turning european football into it can only be success. We could have lower divisions of the european superleague for promotion/relegation to/from main superleague.

Players will be tired by playing both so there are two options:

1. Domestic football could be played with reserve players/B teams/youngsters

2. Domestic football could stop to exist

Think bigger. I'd just ban your European Superleague and have a World Superleague instead. Think about it...you'd have the best players from each country forming a team and they'd play a tournament with other countries. Also, no need to have separate tournaments for round robins and knockouts...I'd combine them into one with round robins first and knockouts later. The eventual winners would be called..."World Champions".

I like the 1. as I would love Juventus to be relegated to Italian serie B with their reserve team while playing the Superleague with the first team.
