The club resonated the feelings of supporters across the board
There are measly moments in the world of football when supporters from a bevy of clubs unite and agree upon something. The elusive moment has finally occurred though with the inception of the Super League seeing clubs stand up in one voice.
After six Premier League clubs announced their plans to join the new concept, the league has been in massive turmoil across the last couple of days. The remainder of the 14 clubs excluded from the competition have in particular been left bereaved with the top 6’s decision to form their own exclusive league.
Everton Miffed With Top 6
Everton have now weighed in on the move as well with the club launching a scathing attack of the super league. The club has taken the opportunity to tear into neighbour’s and much hated rivals, Liverpool as well.
“Six clubs acting entirely in their own interests,” Everton wrote in their statement.
“Six clubs tarnishing the reputation of our league and the game.
“Six clubs choosing to disrespect every other club with whom they sit around the Premier League table.
“Six clubs taking for granted and even betraying the majority of football supporters across our country and beyond.
“At this time of national and international crisis – and a defining period for our game – clubs should be working together collaboratively with the ideals of our game and its supporters uppermost.
“Instead, these clubs have been secretly conspiring to break away from a football pyramid that has served them so well.
“And in that Pyramid Everton salutes every club, be it Leicester City, Accrington Stanley, Gillingham, Lincoln City, Morecambe, Southend United, Notts County and the rest who have, with their very being, enriched the lives of their supporters throughout the game’s history. And vice versa.
“The self-proclaimed Super Six appear intent on disenfranchising supporters across the game – including their own – by putting the very structure that underpins the game we love under threat.
“The backlash is understandable and deserved – and has to be listened to.
“This preposterous arrogance is not wanted anywhere in football outside of the clubs that have drafted this plan.
