Man United vs Liverpool postponed
The headline news in the footballing world over the past week has of course centered around Manchester United.
The Reds were part of the proposed European Super League which was announced and collapsed in the space of a few days last month after huge fan backlash.
Fans of some of the ESL clubs, however, have not stopped at the collapse of the league and are continuing to have their voice heard.
Arsenal fans protested against their owners, KSE, last month prior to their clash with Everton.
And, this past weekend, Man United fans held a protest of their own, which somehow saw hundreds of fans end up on the Old Trafford pitch ahead of their meeting with Liverpool on Sunday.
