On a momentous day in the landscape of European football, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City, Tottenham and Chelsea all withdrew from the European Super League,.
Plans for the hugely controversial breakaway league are in tatters following extensive fallout, with each English club backtracking on what would have been a deal worth hundreds of millions to each participant.
The backlash to Sunday’s announcement was vicious, all encompassing and deserved for the clubs, who treated their contemporaries with contempt.
And it’s not something that will be forgotten quickly by anyone – whether that be opponents or their own fans.
Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward resigned from his role with the club, and will be leaving at the end of 2021. That decision is said to have always been planned, but the timing could not have sent a clearer message.
United fans have long had a resentment towards Woodward, not only for his perceived failings in the job but for his role in the takeover of the club by the Glazer family.

Following the joint announcement by the four English clubs just before 11pm on Tuesday night, that feeling from United fans was clear to see once more on social media, and they were not alone.
Arsenal and Tottenham supporters also made their feelings known, with #KroenkeOut, #GlazersOut, #SuperLeagueOut and #LevyOut all in the top five trends on Twitter.
Arsenal legend Ian Wright also added his voice to the movement, simply tweeting “#KroenkeOut” following the end of the Gunners’ involvement in the Super League.
