Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have been totally absorbed by the huge European Super League story that has consumed football for the past 24 hours or so.
12 clubs have confirmed their status as founding members, which has gone down terribly.
Fans far and wide have slated the proposal as a self-serving cash-grab driven by greed that will ruin football.
The Premier League’s ‘Bix Six’ make up half of the teams to have signed up so far.
It has been reported that should these clubs press ahead and play in the European Super League, then players will be banned by the Premier League, UEFA and FIFA from competing in their competitions (via Reuters).
At the time of writing, it is looking like Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Tottenham Hotspur will not be competing in the English top-flight next term, although one suspects this situation could take many turns.
There has been a lot of doom and gloom on social media and rightly so.
But as with any situation, where the internet is concerned, there is always potential for a laugh.
The Wolves official Twitter account provided some light-hearted relief yesterday evening, by posting: “So you’re saying top seven could be back on?”
The tweet went down well with Wolves fans and supporters of all clubs:

Nice to see someone making a brighter aspect of this, but I really hope us as a club are trying to fight against this league
