Well that was an interesting two days.

And on the second day of Juventus being a part of the Super League, everything fell apart.

According to multiple reports, the Super League is on the brink of collapsing less than 48 hours after it announced its original 12 founding clubs. Chelsea has started the process of pulling out of the Super League. Same goes for Manchester City, Atletico Madrid and even Manchester United, according to reports. As I type this, there’s reportedly a meeting of the presidents of the 12 founding clubs to try and see if there’s something they can actually salvage here, or if the Super League’s lifespan will run from April 18, 2021, to April 20, 2021.

Juventus, namely President Andrea Agnelli, are still in on the Super League as far as we can tell at this point. But with so much chaos going on around the Super League right now and the future of the breakaway league suddenly a major doubt, things aren’t looking good.

At all.

Maybe this is the time to insert the gif of Grampa Simpson walking in, grabbing his hat and then walking right on out. Maybe you have a different gif that is more appropriate for the current situation playing out in front of us where the Super League appears to be blowing up right in its own face all of two days after things were rolled out.

Either way, Juventus’ involvement in the Super League doesn’t look like it’s going to happen mainly because the actual Super League is falling apart. There will be plenty of dominoes that will fall because of this, and we’re only getting started with the impact this will have even though no Super League games were actually played.
