It will soon be a criminal offence not to wear a poppy.(I wear one by the way on 11/11)

Back to the original question......

Not enough money filtering down to youth football


Here's one, footballer's, who rose through the lower league structure, and then later make a huge financial success of themselves in the Premiership, fail to make some monetary difference to their origin club when that club which produced them falls on bad times.

And he probably wouldn't be wearing a poppy. So the fact he is a professional footballer is irrelevant.

Where did I mention poppies?

How are these footballers making a stand or what stand are they making? Perhaps incorrectly I thought you were referring to this Irish lad who decided against wearing a poppy.

That in itself is an issue... how people get away with charging over a 2 for a 330ml bottle of beer is ridiculous.

The de-centralisation and over-complicating of football in order to create greater wealth for the few.

Solutions (domestic):

Create a single body to administer professional and semi-professional football.
Create a single League with 4 or 5 divisions, named Division 1, Division 2 etc.
All clubs in the League to enter cup competitions at the same time.

Solutions (European club):

European Cup to be a knockout cup competition for Division 1 winners only.
European Cup Winners' Cup to be a knockout cup competition for major cup winners only.

Solutions (International):

European Championships and World Cup qualifiers and finals to get rid of any kind of seeding.

So if, as Jeremy Wray prophesised, the Championship will become Premier League Div 2, what will the impact of that be, both for clubs in and out of the top 2 leagues?

Peter Scudamore and the PL
Players getting booked for doing very little wrong (taking shirt off, slight mistimed challenge)
Refereeing standards
Blatter
Platini
Agents
Champions League (Bring back the knockout European Cup, Cup Winners Cup and UEFA Cup)
Teams that get knocked out of the CL, then able to go into the Europa Cup

And....money !!

In terms of these two:

Players getting booked for doing very little wrong (taking shirt off, slight mistimed challenge) - agreed but with the shirt taking off thing they know they will get booked so why continue doing it? It makes a bit of a mockery of the idea that if they got booked for swearing at the referee they would stop doing it?

Refereeing standards - They are poor, but if the players stopped trying to cheat all the time would make their lives a little easier.
