Arsenal fans, disappointed by years of underperformance, lay the blame on the Premiership and vote, by a small majority, to leave it.
The club management accept the result, and announce that the ‘will of the fans’ must be implemented.
Arsenal declare that they will not be members of any league, but will approach every team in the FA and ask them for a game. They estimate that the club will prosper if they can persuade the other clubs to participate.
They are not deterred by the fact that no club has ever done this, anywhere, and that they will lose the TV money, a role in drawing up the Premiership rules and a place in European competitions.
Arsenal do ask the Premiership if it will still be possible to play against other Premiership teams. However they do not want to make a financial contribution to the league, be bound by the rules on standards of venue (they argue their stadium is already up to standard),
and they want to use their own referee.
Not surprisingly, the Premiership aren’t keen on this proposal. They mention that Arsenal may encounter other Premiership teams in the FA and League Cup, but this will be in accordance with competition rules and independent referees.
What remains a mystery to football fans everywhere is how Arsenal can blame its problems on the Premiership, and how leaving the Premiership will solve them?
