Re: Football (Soccer} Super League

Lose the identity of a club and you lose the club. I disagree. Wimbledon FC were a club in south London. Somehow they ended up becoming MK Dons, in a town (city ?) 60 miles away Arsenal was originally a football club for people at the Royal Arsenal munition factory in Woolwich, south east London (h...

Re: Football (Soccer} Super League

Great idea as it would make football much more in line with big trademarks like the NHL and the NBA. It would also free team brands from the chains of being linked to one city, they could become global. Imagine clubs based all around the globe and with the best players in one league.
