England let us all down
 

Let down, humilated, insulted, devestated...I could go on.


I feel there are two points worth making.


1. Whether we like it or not we are represented by over paid princesses. They are spoon fed everything in their footballing lives The only thing to match the size of their wallets is the size of their egos. We need to address this by introducing a performance based pay system.


2. The FA are absolutely clueless. They are run by complete idiots. They have learnt nothing at all from their mistakes. I cannot believe that they 'secured' the services of Capello days before the tournament started without any kind of performance related clause. I would love to have afew hours shooting practice at the heads of the FA cheifs. Maybe this would knock some sense into them. I would ask the England Team to join in but not sure they would hit the target.

Rangers in Administration
 

How can one of the top two teams in Scotland end up in Administration?  Why are football clubs so badly run?  There is so much greed in football this is why clubs like Rangers and Portsmouth end up in Administration.

I am a Bristol City supporter and I would hate to see my club in administration or go bust and disappear but why is it the football clubs are immune from normal business practices?  We are in a recession that has seen some well known, well loved brands disappear from our high streets, so why are football clubs allowed to continue.  It is about time the government stopped stepping in and allowed clubs to go bust and disappear.  That has to be the only way to get the message out to the rest of the operators of the football clubs that this is a business and must be run like one.  Need to learn to balance the books and stop paying ludicruios wages to average players.

I don't want to see anyone's club go bust but at the same time this nonsense must stop.
