I dare say that John W. Henry paying the £3.5m fine for dragging Liverpool into the doomed European Super League plot will register for him about as much as the charge you get for going into your overdraft does for the rest of us.

The six English clubs that sought to become part of the European Super League closed shop have now had punitive action taken against them by the Premier League, although a combined £20m fine and no competitive sanctions is hardly the strength of action that some of their rivals would have liked to have seen taken.

That fine won't really hurt FSG or Henry, it will be a cost absorbed fairly comfortably.

It is a slap on the wrists, an admonishing in front of their peers, but they have been allowed to sit at their desk again provided they don't embark on another effort to undermine football and ignore the fans who, as it has been proved by the dull spectacle of empty stadiums, make football what it is.

FSG have come away with it with barely a scratch for now, but there will be a price to pay when they have to face the most crucial part of Liverpool Football Club.

But the Super League idea won't go away, it will simply become dormant for a period.

I'm sure that Henry, Tom Werner and the rest at Fenway Sports Group would rather not have to hear the words European Super League again.
