FANS raved about ‘bring the Super League back’ while fuming about the planned changes to the FA Cup.
The new plans for the competition from the start of the 2024/25 season see replays being abolished.
According to the Daily mailthe oldest cup competition in the world is facing the biggest upheaval in its history.
The report claims the FA are set to hand over control of the competition to the Premier League.
This would mean top clubs would be in control of the entire national calendar.
FA boss Mark Bullingham is expected to accept an offer from the Premier League that would see replays abolished.
There is also a possibility that the first rounds of the competition will be played during the week.
The final would no longer be played on its own weekend, but on a weekend of Premier League games.
Since it is likely to be the penultimate Saturday of the season, the last matchday can still fall on a Sunday.
Other changes include a 10-year deal to sell foreign television rights for all overseas markets, as well as the domestic rights currently held by the BBC and ITV.

The Premier League will also make a larger payment to the FA to fund grassroots football.
However, fans are not impressed with the proposed changes, with one tweeting: “Bringing back the Super League. Let the top 6/7 shut down and focus on money, the rest of the pyramid can go back to how it was before.”
Another outraged: “Replays were scrapped, bringing in a ton of money for lower league teams. Brilliant guys, another nice guy.”
A third fan added: “The midweek games and finals take place in a normal game week. Grim, they’re doing everything they can to ruin the game.”
One of them also commented: “Once again we are making every effort for ‘elite’ clubs.”
The FA has not yet commented on the reports.
