Bernard Mckenna - "Football just died today RIP."

Peter Boocock - "Me thinks the FA, UEFA and FIFA and a whole load of other national FAs won't let this happen. The tail wagging the dog."

Jose Gimelem - "Won't support it."

@Prokyp - "ESL a great idea if the fans support it in sufficient numbers. If there is no global TV audience then they could have a problem."
