Day 109 of 365: The ESL shouldn’t concern Arsenal and Tottenham


Jose Mourinho spent 17 months as Tottenham Hotspur manager before he got the boot this morning. A lot of rumors surrounding his sack have been peddled by various sources with most of them pointing at the team’s results (1 win in 5 games) while some said it was because the Portuguese didn’t support Spurs joining the European Super League (ESL).

Speaking of the ESL, 12 European teams tagged  power houses or elite clubs have signified interest in or joined the league with Arsenal, A.C Milan, Inter Milan, Juventus, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham making up a rebel dozen for now. 3 more clubs are expected to join to make up the founding clubs that would admit 5 more clubs to make 20 teams forming 2 groups.

While UEFA, European football’s governing  body are grumbling about some spoilt rich kids (the Super League crew) trying to breakaway from them, I am wondering what Arsenal and Tottenham are doing in this group of Super Clubs. I just don’t get it. They are both shelving an opportunity to win the UEFA Champions League (something they both have never won before) to join the biggest boys in Europe where they would be beaten, brushed, battered and bruised.

They should have just remained with the so called lesser teams as the ESL have made their chances of winning Europe’s elite football competition; the Champions League better.

The ESL is not for the North London teams (Arsenal and Tottenham), I said what I said.
