He didn't pass it! Takeover was allowed to go through despite him not taking the test now Bury are being penalised for him being incompetent

I'd be setting up a class action against the FA for not running the test.

The premier league should be giving some of their wealth to prop up these clubs.

I think they might do to the football league, it's not enough though. Imagine if all PL players agreed to a 2% tax to benefit clubs in lower leagues. Total wages in 2017 were 2.9 billion so that would equal 58 million, that's got to help surely

Why should premier league clubs prop up terrible dodgy businessmen lower down? Basically punishing the honest clubs. The vetting needs to be better and fan representation on all boards to block/remove.

I agree the PL should fund grassroots football though.

Yeah, I kinda meant lower than the league leagues. I'm a regular to conference level and the benefit to the community at that level is more raw and direct than anything a league side could do. They are more responsible for nurturing the kids and face big hurdles to stay in business

Because they will benefit from it eventually. Professional & semi-pro football in the UK is probably has the most depth of football competition in the world.

This depth of competition and the quality of it (including quality of facilities) will definitely help produce better English & foreign players who play at those lower levels and some of those will go onto PL academies or first teams.

It's not the mandate of the PL clubs but it surely is of the FA. You could easily ensure it didn't prop up lousy ownership by putting the proceeds of a small PL tax towards lower league clubs by giving it out in the form of grants.

This would ensure that money couldn't be taken out of those clubs or used for other things that were not related to facilities & player development.

Not all chairman are bad either but most are business of course. My 2nd club are Bromley and after plodding along since 1892 they've made great strides in the last 10 years. They've brought in new owners, have invested in 2 4G pitches, one as the main pitch and the other a training facility. They've opened a new 1500 all seated stand with indoor pitches and conference facilities and run teams right though from U8. They don't need financial support and are well run. I'd hate to see badly run clubs benefit just to waste the money. It's a quandary

I know that somewhwre there is a xabi alonso thread, hut cant get the search function to find it...

Xabi still hates Rafa

Xabi Alonso BBC interview: On becoming a coach, Liverpool, Guardiola, Zidane and Bale.

That's the good thing that you have after 18 years playing football, I have been lucky to have contact with John Toshack, with Jose Mourinho, with Pep Guardiola, with Vicente Del Bosque.

"Bologna manager Sinisa Mihajlovic made an emotional return to the dugout after being diagnosed with leukaemia just six weeks ago.

The 50-year-old Serb oversaw a 1-1 draw in Bologna's opening Serie A game of the season at Hellas Verona.

Mihajlovic, who has vowed to "win this battle", is having chemotherapy.

He promised his players he would be with them for the first game and he made it after spending the last 41 nights in hospital.

According to reports in Italy, Mihajlovic has kept up to date with events at the club by watching live videos of training sessions from the cancer ward of the Sant'Orsola Hospital in Bologna.

His official appearance was announced in a simple Twitter message by the club an hour before kick-off, while there were lots of messages of support - including one from Serie A rivals Napoli stating, "Forza Sinisa Mihajlovic".

There were also chants of supports from the visiting fans when Mihajlovic, looking physically weak, came out with his team at the start of the game.

The former Yugoslavia defender, who played for Roma, Sampdoria, Lazio and Inter Milan among others, returned to Bologna in January for his second spell in charge and guided them to a 10th place finish."

Burnley played, and got thrashed, tonight with 10 reserves. Is Joe Hart their main keeper? If not, then 11. Bastards all saving their legs for us. Let's hope they regret not being in a winnable Cup even more on Saturday night.

We've had even longer to rest and focus. Fuck Burnley, we really shouldn't be worried about them

On Gazza, I was reading Peter Hook's (New Order) book on holiday and he talked about the time they recorded the England WC song.

Gazza turned up at the the studio and kicked off by drinking 3 bottles of champagne in the first 15 minutes

And he didn't even mention Rock of Gibraltar which led to the Galzers whom Fergie was more than happy to accept their money despite the damage their leveraged takeover did and continues to do to the club.
