Liverpool FC v Fulham FC – Premier League

Liverpool fans are renowned for being forthcoming in their views when it comes to standing up for what they believe to be right and proper.

Today has been no exception as Kopites headed to Anfield to take a stance against the club’s involvement in the proposed European Super League.

The plans have seen widespread condemnation as the Reds and five other Premier League sides sign up to the proposals.

In the backlash, both UEFA and the Premier League itself have threatened that the clubs will not be allowed to participate in their competitions moving forwards, a juxtaposition that would be of huge loss to Liverpool.

Furthermore, fan groups have taken things a step further by requesting their banners and flags be removed from the Kop, having previously adorned the stand in the absence of fans.

This could merely be the beginning of the fallout in what looks set to be a murky situation at the top end of the game.

Liverpool and the other founder 11 clubs alike will have to tread carefully so as not to cut ties entirely with not only their federations but also their adoring fanbases – if they haven’t already.
