If this league is set up against the wishes of the FA, could any player participating be banned from playing for England?

If things get out of hand then all sorts of things could happen. The big battle will be UEFA and FIFA.

I could see UEFA banning players from it from the euros if that relationship breaks down but I don't think England would do it otherwise.

What consequences? It's being backed by FIFA. They have the law on their side, not against them.

So the European league is supposedly backed by the World Football Authority but not the Regions Authority. I do wonder if FIFA are involved to reduce UEFA's Power as well.

I doubt FIFA is actually involved. Maybe some individual there but not the organization - an open civil war with UEFA makes little sense.

Until FIFA come out and make their interest in this idea known I will reserve the right to say itĎs nonsense unless brown envelopes are being spread here there and everywhere In FIFA HQ.

Iím baffled as to why any club would want to leave a league with more popularity than any other league in the world. Do they really think that this will sweep up all of football? I really cannot see this happening. It does though have the potential for Southgate to have another excuse not to include Jack. Itís like Football Brexit.

Thatís over-stating the stupidity of it a bit, but you know what happened with Brexit?

Well if Real Madrid were to go into a European league it would stop the likes of Shakhtar Donetsk going there and beating them at home. How dare these smaller clubs competing with the so called giants of the game.

But, surely, if lots of players at top clubs are banned from playing for England, there's a serious chance that Grealish might get picked!

Presumably, the level of opponent will have to be right, though.

Americanised Premier League. Probably be six 15 minute sessions, adverts galore, sponsors names on goal posts etc.

No thanks  >:(

And Jack still wouldnít get a start.

What the "Big 6" are scared of is that teams like Villa (and Newcastle if their buy out goes through) are coming along and may well push one of them out of the cabal.  They are trying to protect their own position before this can happen.
