Sincerity rating: At least they said sorry. It’s not much but it’s something.


Sincerity rating: Meh. Regrets, Daniel Levy had a few.

Man Utd:

Sincerity rating: Low. Very low. No apology, no sense that they did anything wrong. Ah, love those Glazers.

Man City:

Sincerity rating: No apology yet.


Sincerity rating: Businesslike statement, no apology. The talk is of stakeholders, not fans – pretty disgraceful from FSG.

Chelsea have yet to confirm their withdrawal.

Verdict: Arsenal the clear winners here, simply for saying sorry. Also:

Lads, it’s the ESL.
