"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"

Why would I want to end every post the same way?

I think things are looking pretty good now.
I was frustrated and thought that I was going to have to stop watching the club I’ve supported for about 35 years.

But now Utd are backing away from the SuperLeague, Woodward is resigning and many commentators are expecting the Glazers to sell.
What a difference a day makes...

Somehow we will be the worst off from all of this. All fans want FSG out and they are not the firesale type of people.

They completely abdicated their roles during all of this as well, just reposting statements from Man United instead of delivering their own statements, and for that alone - making the United board the visible leadership of LFC during this shitshow - they need to be thrown out the moon door.

The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.
