- British writer Will Hutton has written a great piece about the dire state of English football and
how foreign ownership is endangering the sport there. Here's an excerpt:
"(Gordon) Brown will give Platini short shrift. When a draft EU report on football (commissioned by
Britain!) dared to float similar ideas, a Brown spokesman said he would not allow England's
national game to be run by Brussels, a line deemed to play well in the Eurosceptic tabloids.
