As public outrage grew over the planned exclusive ‘Super League’ of European football clubs, the chairs of the Football Supporters Association, the Arsenal supporters trust and the Spirit of Shankly union of Liverpool FC supporters were asked to have an online meeting yesterday with Boris Johnson.

The Liverpool group refused, saying that it couldn’t meet with someone who:

The group added that it realised a political response is good alongside fan protests and sponsor-boycotts and agreed to take part in cross-party meetings with sports ministers – but said this could not include ‘someone treating it as a publicity stunt so he can say he is working with supporters’.

The meeting procceeded without the Liverpool contingent.

One more reason to love Liverpool.

    1. Nice one, Paul! Knew I recognised Blott from somewhere!!

      Where was Blott and his SoS lot (Or any LFC supporter’s association) about the club (For a period since the late 1980’s – (So not the fault of one set of owners but a policy employed by several owners over several DECADES) buying up properties in the immediate area surrounding the barn…Sorry, stadium, and allowing them to go to wrack & ruin; thereby forcing those who remained to put up with the resulting grime and crime…

    With 3 you will win nothing

  3. Shankly said he was received more warmly by Everton rather than his own creation, once he’d retired…
