Fans react to astonishing scenes as Chelsea withdraw from “Super League”

It appears Chelsea are out of the European Super League, and they’re bringing the whole stinking edifice down with them.

The house of cards was always reliant on total unity and strength to survive, and removing a cornerstone like Chelsea so early on would always bring it crashing down.

The Blues are pulling out, clearly due to the venomous reaction from fans, and the opposite reaction to their withdrawal has been just as positive.

Across social media, Chelsea fans – with a heavy tone of irony – are celebrating the fact they’ve “saved football” this time, having been accused of ruining it for so many years.

OK, it’s not as good as refusing to join, but being the first to admit your mistake is worth some credit – or at least worth a smaller share of the opprobrium than everyone else.
