Hope people don't think that's 'job done'.

Look what's been achieved in 48 hours with a bit of unity and gumption.

Keep pushing. Independent Regulation of club spending, tighter restrictions on who can buy clubs, more fan representation at executive level, more equitible distribution of wealth with an explicit caveat that it must be used to subsidise ticket prices, greater investment into 3G pitches + non-league grounds and facilities.

Feels like the fans have woken up to the potential of concerted action but I fear it'll be back to the status quo that led us to this immoral shambles. This should be a lesson that football needs urgent systemic reform, and the dragon has not been slayed.

This should be a watershed into the fans reclaiming some control over the game. Hope it's not squandered. Carragher and Neville need to keep using their platform.

This is why glory hunters (few on here) are killing the game. Without the millions of plastic fans then this super league wouldn't be viable. Liverpool fans from Stoke, United fans from Burslem etc ha

I don't see it that way. Like them or loathe them, Salford have not broken any rules. To say that the likes of Salford shouldn't be allowed to progress up the pyramid is a bit precious - if we only al

Absolutely and I also hope people are simply thinking this is fan power.

Like it or not, I suspect the government threats and threats from UEFA, FIFA and the PL carried far more weight.

I think in a cynical political sense, if Boris and his lot want to get on the side of football fans to earn kudos/credit this way then this is the time to try and get them to drive through the regulation that we all know the game needs - increased fan representation, proper checks and balances on inappropriate owners, regulations for club spending, regulations on abusing the loan system, on big clubs hoovering up all the youth talent etc. Some of these don't have easy/simple answers yet but surely this is the time to open the debate and try and get some better regulations in place.

I do find it very funny that fans are celebrating getting our game back and we showed them that they can't mess with us. The cheapest ticket at Arsenal is £66. The game was lost in 1992.

I don't suppose they'll mind paying that as long as they are signing players like Pepe for £72million?

Peaceful protest I have heard ?. Yeah right.  Trespassing for one. Should not be gathering. For a start. Yet again football at the top being talked about for the wrong reasons.

Should give Liverpool the 3 points. And also dock 3 points from United. 

Unfair on other clubs competing with Liverpool for European places.
