This Super European League sound an awful lot like the NFL; no promotion, no relegation and no real reason to try and win a title because every team get pretty much the same share of television money. A steady income stream with little or no risk.

The Tampa Bay Bucs will love it.

Its been a while, and we get a horrible draw!

Psg and rb leipzig, the 2 semi finalists, will be a nice taster to see how far off the best in Europe we are!

Let's see if we get a glimmer of hope with the 4th team draw

Meh.

We're also rans anyway. I'd kind of rather we get shown up by the decent sides so the cunts running this show have even fewer places to hide.

Agreed. Painful as it will be, the gulf in class needs to be brutally demonstrated.

Best case scenario for the season, we finish 3rd in the group, and have europa league as best bet for next seasons CL!

There's a chance it will be. Teams get smashed these days. PSG are a great team and will want revenge, and Leipzig battered Tottenham. 4-0 on aggregate was kind on Spurs.

Agree with all the above. We're not qualifying from that group and will be shown up for what we are.

It won't make a jot of difference, Ole has already said we are not winning anything for at least 4 years and it's a building project etc etc. There are no expectations and therefore we have lost all pride. As long as we meet the criteria i.e. make the CL and the sponsors keep paying out, then that'll be targets achieved.
