Fan protests ahead of Man United v Liverpool resulted in the postponement of the fixture.

While the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal supporters are not going to be forgiving their owners any time soon whatever happens, the Daily Mail’s belief is that strides forward are set to be made.

The report claims that the other ‘big six’ clubs will follow Chelsea’s example by allowing representatives of their fanbase sit in on board meetings.

How exactly the representatives will be elected, or how much input they will be allowed to have, remains to be seen, but make no mistake, this is hugely significant.
