    All six English clubs have said they are pulling now.

    Farcical.

    I might have misheard him, I've had a few beers, but a SKY presenter said that the foreign owners don't understand English football fans and what they want. Apparently this includes women's teams getting equal pay and 40% of the boards consisting of BAME people (in a country where they represent 13% of the population). Do you know any fans where this is a major desire?

    I think that the clubs pulling out have shown a distinct lack of ambition and innovation
    They shouldn’t bottle it because of a few keyboard warriors
    Stick to your guns chaps
    You thought it was a good idea, presumably taking into account a few dinosaur naysayers

    So **** off

    And don’t come back

    The last few days have shown us yet again the depth of feeling our supporters around the world have for this great club and the game we love.

    We needed no reminding of this but the response from supporters in recent days has given us time for further reflection and deep thought.

    It was never our intention to cause such distress, however when the invitation to join the Super League came, while knowing there were no guarantees, we did not want to be left behind to ensure we protected Arsenal and its future.

    As a result of listening to you and the wider football community over recent days we are withdrawing from the proposed Super League. We made a mistake, and we apologise for it.

    We know it will take time to restore your faith in what we are trying to achieve here at Arsenal but let us be clear that the decision to be part of the Super League was driven by our desire to protect Arsenal, the club you love, and to support the game you love through greater solidarity and financial stability.

    Stability is essential for the game to prosper and we will continue to strive to bring the security the game needs to move forward.

    The system needs to be fixed. We must work together to find solutions which protect the future of the game and harness the extraordinary power football has to get us on the edge of our seats.

    Finally, we know this has been hugely unsettling at the end of what has been an incredibly difficult year for us all.

    Our aim is always to make the right decisions for this great football club, to protect it for the future and to take us forward. We didn’t make the right decision here, which we fully accept.

    We have heard you.

    The Arsenal Board

    “We can confirm that we have formally commenced procedures to withdraw from the group developing proposals for a European Super League (ESL).

    Chairman Daniel Levy said: “We regret the anxiety and upset caused by the ESL proposal. We felt it was important that our club participated in the development of a possible new structure that sought to better ensure financial fair play and financial sustainability whilst delivering significantly increased support for the wider football pyramid.

    “We believe that we should never stand still and that the sport should constantly review competitions and governance to ensure the game we all love continues to evolve and excite fans around the world.

    “We should like to thank all those supporters who presented their considered opinions.”
