Boehly stated, as quoted in Football365.
“And really begins to figure out why we don’t do a tournament for the four bottom sports teams and why isn’t an All-Star?
People are talking about more money to the pyramid. In the MLB All-Star Game this year, we made 200 million from a Monday or a Tuesday.
“So, we’re thinking that we could have a North versus South All Star game for the Premier League for whatever the pyramid required quite easily.”
While the Blues chief might be ridiculed for his idea, could it turn out to be an entertaining event? Could the proceeds of the game be used to support grassroots football and the lower leagues?
. And, most importantly, who will make the All-Star North or South lineups? We decided to give it our best effort at selecting the XI’s below.
Here’s our attempt at a lineup of the top players from Northern clubs. It’s dominated by Liverpool and Manchester City, but Bruno Fernandes, Manchester United’s player, also made it in.
It would make a great team to watch. However, it would be more fun if there were fewer places for players from one club. This would mean that there would be a mixture of players from Everton and Newcastle.
While we wait, Southern XI is out, which looks like it will take some beating. However, on balance, we’d likely back the North team to win this clash…
Which of these teams would you prefer? Are there any people we should have included? We’d love to hear from you in the comments.
