Here are some of the very best viral tweets put out by this handle with regards to things or events that lasted longer than the ESL.

Meanwhile UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin revealed why the Super League failed as he said, "It was a combination of different factors. It first started with our statement along with the leagues and other clubs when we strongly opposed the establishment of this league. It was a Sunday afternoon. They came in at night with a press release and we had an executive committee in the morning, we approved all the changes and after that I had a press conference where I discussed everything as openly as possible."

He further stated, "After that came a response from the office of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson. French president [Emmanuel] Macron came forward very quickly. But most of all, of course, the fans helped. They staged a real revolution and did not allow themselves to be despised, ignored and thought they could be bought."
