Default Multi-club networks - Good for the game or the beginning of the end?

Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool all hope to become multi-club networks

Quote:
The owners of Arsenal and Liverpool have joined Chelsea’s Todd Boehly in looking into establishing a multi-club network pioneered by Manchester City’s owner, City Football Group.

It is understood that Arsenal’s Stan Kroenke – who already owns an MLS team – and his Liverpool counterpart John W Henry have explored adding clubs inside and outside Europe to their portfolios, after Boehly indicated he would like to set up what he described as “a multi-club model”. Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea are under American ownership.
Is it just an evolution of the traditional feeder/parent club arrangements, or just another step towards the end of the game as we traditionally know it?

Hate it personally, everything about is plastic as f*** and it just feels wrong. New York City, Melbourne City

Embarrassing.

Clubs becoming "franchises". No surprise that US-owned clubs are gagging for it

This just means that big clubs can hoover up all the young players going without having to take too many risks. They can just 'loan' them to their sister clubs and if they're shite then they haven't had to pay out developing them and taking up space in their academies and if they're good then they get them back after paying a 'nominal' fee.

Will (further) destroy the lower leagues before going on to effectively wipe out leagues in smaller nations.

If the American owners want it…I’m against it.

It’s a case of the ultra rich stealing larger and larger slices of the game from the working man.

Feels like when you make a concerted effort to buy all the squares of a particular colour on monopoly.

It's worse than that. It's going to play Monopoly at someone else's house and bringing all the money from your own box at home.

Has it really done anything for City? It feels like a phenomenal waste of money tbh.

The Arabs behind City don't appear to be bothered about wasting money, clearly.

It's too early to tell since the point it to use it to loan out promising players from City's academy to Girona for instance, where they'll be playing at a good level until they can be either brought back to City or sold at profit. We'll see

Can’t think of a single good honest reason for it.
