For their part in the failed plot to launch a European Super League by stealth, the Premier League's so-called 'big six' were handed down their domestic punishment for their actions, the clubs landed with a £3.5m fine each as a 'gesture of goodwill', with far stricter sanctions to be imposed should they try such a scheme again.

Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have all had their wrists slapped this past week.

Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus continue their fight with UEFA over the Super League, but that fight isn't really about whether or not the Super League can happen, it is about how much power UEFA and FIFA should be able to hold when it comes to broadcasting rights and commercial deals, as well as ensuring that no competitive sanctions that would damage the clubs financially could be handed down.

What has happened since, with the anger shown towards the owners of the six Premier League clubs from their fan bases, and the pretty unanimous thumbs down that it received from the rest of the football community, means that it is highly unlikely that any of them will be willing to put themselves out like that any time soon.

Deductions of up to 30 points and another £20m fine each would be coming their way if, like Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus, the dissident three clubs who remain stuck on the idea that the only way forward is for their plan to come to fruition, they decide they want to have another go at shaking European football to its very core.

It will be a long time before the Super League idea is presented to fans again, it may be a case of waiting for generational shift in what football fans are looking for before it is attempted.

In respect of wanting a larger slice of the broadcasting and commercial rights, and having greater ownership over those rights, all of the clubs who signed up to the Super League in the first place will remain on the same page.
