Super League anniversary: ​​UEFA profits off failed breakaway

It is a year since the European Super League launched. At the moment, it seemed a bizarre project, ill-conceived and ill-promoted. Within 48 hours it seemed effectively dead as fans took to the streets to protest. Chelsea, then Manchester City, sheepishly withdrew. Liverpool owner John W. Henry gave an odd, mournful address, acknowledging he had misjudged the mood. There was a brief moment when it seemed that football might be heading for a reset, that something other than commercial concerns may become a consideration. That seems very naïve now.
