Faster than the daft idea for the Super League could be formulated, it all fell apart on Tuesday night, much to the joy of all football fans.
Chelsea were the first to pull out, then Manchester City and late on the other four Premier League clubs put statements out in quick succession, with only Arsenal putting any sign of an apology to fans in the statement.
On Wednesday morning, Liverpool then became the first club to put out an official apology, with owner John W Henry appearing in a video to take full blame for the club's actions, with many fans still not forgiving him.
Following the video many fans of the Premier League champions took to Twitter to say that if the American signed Mbappe then all would be forgiven.

Nothing but a C U Next Tuesday.. Give Klopp couple hundred mil this summer or sign Mbappe or Haaland and we might feel better... https://t.co/AqMMIkUgWk- The Near Post Podcast (@thenearpostpod) April 21, 2021
Whilst there was some genuine sentiment about Mbappe's signing being enough to quell the anger, some of the replies definitely felt more like jokes.
On top of that there were plenty of fans calling for the American owners to sign the World Cup winner before selling the club, although that seems even less likely to happen.
The 22-year-old has been linked with a move to the Premier League champions in the past and fans even set up a funding page to try and get the money together.
The former Monaco forward's contract is due to expire next summer when he'd be available for free but he's also been strongly linked with Real Madrid.
Looks like Henry won't be forgiven anytime soon...
