James Pearce says insiders believe the Super League won't go ahead

Liverpool fans are in turmoil at the moment. The club we love so dearly is being pawned to a Super League by American billionaires. The backlash has been sweeping and justifiable. James Pearce has offered a glimmer of hope suggesting insiders believe the Super League won’t go ahead.

Super League attack

This week has seen an attack on football as we know it.

12 clubs have announced that they will be forming a Super League.

This closed shop competition will be a breakaway from UEFA and its Champions League.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham, AC Milan, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Juventus and Real Madrid have signed up to the scandal.

The organisation expects a further three founding members to sign up before starting as soon as practicable.

The format would see two leagues of ten played out with the top three from each league meeting in the quarter finals along with the winners of fourth and fifth placed play offs.

James Pearce on Super League chances

There are some of us out there still holding onto hope that this is just a power play.

Just praying that they’re just trying to buy more leverage with UEFA.

Writing for The Athletic, James Pearce relayed what insiders have said about the Super League:

“I’ve spoken to people today who remain convinced the Super League won’t happen. I really hope they are right but damage has been done by FSG’s action that will never be repaired.”

What RTK has to say

Liverpool have shamed themselves with their actions here.

Even if the Super League doesn’t go ahead in the end we can’t forgive and forget FSG’s role in this.

If it does go ahead then now is a great time to watch the F1 Drive to Survive Series on Netflix; time to pick a new sport.
