NEIL ATKINSON and John Gibbons were joined by Si Steers and and Karl Coppack in another TAW World Cup special with debate also inevitably focusing on Luis Suarez’s ban following his latest biting incident.
Neil Atkinson is joined by The New York Times’ Rory Smith to talk about the European Super League, what it means for Liverpool and the rest of football…
Rory wrote on Twitter: “I don’t think it is necessarily true that national leagues are the natural conclusion of football, or that the Champions League (as it stands, or as it is about to be) is somehow perfect and unyielding. I think it’s important football has space to change and, ideally, improve.”
“But even to someone not unilaterally opposed to the idea, this one falls down in two ways. One is the permanence: not because it doesn’t protect the pyramid – the current status quo doesn’t protect the pyramid either, nobody on either side actually gives a shit about the pyramid.”
