Liverpool fans were left fuming after the club released a dismissive 47-word statement on a shambolic 48 hours in which the Reds helped launch - and then quit - the European Super League following powerful condemnation from the football world.
On Tuesday evening, Liverpool and the rest of the Premier League's so-called 'Big Six' announced they had started a formal process to leave the group of 12 clubs from across Europe who had set to launch a closed shop Super League just two days earlier.
Football fans, players, managers, pundits and journalists alike hit out at the proposals as it became abundantly clear decisions had been taken by owners with little regard to anyone else.
And, as the ramifications of their actions truly set in following threats by football and political governing bodies, the six club's involved from the domestic top flight released statements saying they were leaving the Super League.
Liverpool's simply read: "Liverpool Football Club can confirm that our involvement in proposed plans to form a European Super League has been discontinued.
"In recent days, the club has received representations from various key stakeholders, both internally and externally, and we would like to thank them for their valuable contributions."
There was no apology, like Arsenal and Tottenham had issued, and there was no word from anyone at FSG as they continued their silence while letting the likes of Jurgen Klopp and James Milner speak out for them.
And Liverpool fans across social media were quick to hit out at the club who seemed to almost brush off what a sorry 48 hours it had been at Anfield, with #FSGOut trending across Twitter alongside #GlazersOut and #KroenkeOut.
Where’s your apology? Where’s the statement from the board members? Where’s your letter to the fans who you disrespected for the past 48 hours? Shocking statement https://t.co/Td4llFhR3B

Us, the supporters, would like a little bit more than tonight’s statement. Because you, the club’s principal owner, have dragged Liverpool’s name through the mud for no good reason while trying to force through something no one wanted. Any hopes? https://t.co/Nx7F8wQwKg

The Super League lasted 48 hours.
We were given 47 words.

Just to be clear — it is not good enough from the ownership to simply let that statement be released with no personal acknowledgement or their own words. I think it is clear that plenty within the club have done all they could.

Genuinely can't believe the state of that club statement. No mention of the fans, no mention of all the hurt caused, no apology. Grim.

It remains to be seen over whether FSG will address their actions and you'd think with the pressure mounting that may just happen.
