How Would Regular Domestic Leagues Look Without Super League Teams

The whole football world was stunned when twelve teams came up with a statement on creating a new competition called “European Super League”. It was a devastating statement for every true football fan because we all easily recognized the direction in which the main organizers would go. It is all about money. Note that these are 12 of the richest football clubs in the world. And they are all about to get richer. Every other team in the world, aside from 20 clubs who will compete in this new competition, will be severely handicapped in terms of finances. 

You all probably know everything about the format of the future competition and the teams that stand behind the whole project. Instead of ranting on the format that keeps the 12 founding clubs safe regardless of results (no relegation for them), we will try and look at the situation from a different (more beautiful) perspective. 

FIFA and UEFA have already stood up against the project.

The likes of Leicester City and West Ham United have already established themselves as strong candidates for a top-four finish even with all teams in the league. The Foxes and the Hammers played very well in this term of the Premier League and they would clearly be among the main title contenders without the mentioned six clubs in the competition. Everton, Aston Villa, Leeds United, and Wolves would all be genuine candidates for places in UEFA Champions League. Can you imagine the last round of the season and the clash between Jack Grealish on one side and Patrick Bamford on the other side in a match that determines the last passenger to the elite continental competition (it would not be that elite anymore, though, but still)?

Serie A

To be fair, Juventus have been the only serious representative of Italian football in the last five years. Atalanta did well in UEFA Champions League last season, but the rest of the field did very little to stay competitive to the strongest teams from other high-profile leagues at the
