While many seem to want this issue to just fade away, namely the powers that be and the 12 wealth hoarders who instigated this whole shambles, fans off all the clubs involved are determined to make sure it is not forgotten.

There is a planned protest for outside the Emirates on Friday evening at 6pm, before Arsenal’s Premier League game against Everton that is due to kick-off at 8pm.

Mikel Arteta has given his approval to the protests, saying that fans need to be given ‘space to express themselves’ when he spoke to the media on Thursday.

Asked how he thought trust could be rebuilt between the club and the fans, first he praised the owners at the club. Arteta said, “Well, I can talk with my experience since I was a player, a captain and now a manager. We have always had great communication and full support from the ownership.

“That goes down to every member of the football club and I think the most important way to show it is that in the most challenging period of the football club, during this pandemic, the way we have done things and the things that we have reached out as a club and the commitment every single person at the club has shown in difficult moments.

“Not just to be there, but when they had to help the club, we were there. That makes me really proud.”

Then he got to the fans. “The fans have to express, that is their right and they have to do it freely,” Arteta added. “For me, what it shows is the power and the capacity when they show that determination and passion to achieve what they want.

“If we can use this with our fans to support the team, I think that will be incredibly powerful and it will make us much, much stronger. So it’s time to leave them to express themselves and now, somehow, we have to engage them again, get them closer to us and believing in what we do. If we do that, we’ll be in a much better place.”

On Thursday, a group of around 20 Manchester United fans got into Carrington, their training ground, where they spoke to manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The fans were there around 90 minutes but that the police were called ‘pretty quickly’, according to a security guard.

United said in a statement: “At approximately 9am this morning a group gained access to the club training ground. The manager and others spoke to them. Buildings were secure and the group has now left the site.”

The sentiment at United is very much the same as  at Arsenal, get the owners out:
