The UK was admitted to the EU with special privileges ... and that wasn't good enough for these 'special' people. Don't be surprised if the EPL teams can't play in the Champions League within 20 years.LOL. That is wishful thinking. The EPL will be the world's most followed league for a long, long time. Players and coaches from around the world will always want to be a part of it.
I think the MLS, if smart, can start picking off the other Euro leagues, one at a time.
You're absolutely correct that the British have a completely unjustified sense of specialness. So do Americans. But maybe you have forgotten that the German variant of this has led to two world wars and the Holocaust.
