Another set of half-baked proposals from the Football League

thetwounfortunates at related • 0 views

Two summers ago, I stood on the stoop of a pub in Oxford and was interviewed over the telephone by the We Are Going Up podcast about the proposals to introduce reserve teams of Premier League clubs into the Football League.

Met with a volley of outbursts and snorts as it was, the idea was given short shrift in most quarters (aside from Mark Warburton – a man who .

The Argument: Is There Too Much Football on TV?

thetwounfortunates at related • 0 views

When did being a football fan start to feel like such hard work? It's not that there's more football in the world than there used to be. What's changed is the availability and exposure of it all. Anybody with the right sort of television package, mobile phone contract or internet connection should never go more than 24 hours without a game to watch.

A Football League SWOT Analysis: The Weaknesses

thetwounfortunates at related • 0 views

[O]f course by its very definition the Football League is weak – comparatively. While it's true that West Ham and Southampton skilfully negotiated the step up to the Premier League this past year, both enjoyed wage structures and transfer budgets way beyond the scope of second tier clubs. Yesterday's opening post on thisfour day SWOT analysis salvo perhaps painted too rosy a picture of the League's attributes.

Sponsoring the Football League: A Short History

[W]hat's in it for them is a commonquery that springs to mind when assessing football sponsorship and indeed, since the financial crisis of 2008 kicked in, one might ask the question more forcibly?

The Ethics of Soccer Sponsorship

Feeling queasy at the increased commercialisation of football is an experience common to us all, but a definite ‘if you can't beat ‘em, join ‘em' mood has prevailed in recent years. Indeed, sponsorship has become yet another facet of the game to get nostalgic about – a marvellous post at the Football Attic recently confirmed the fact that certain advertisers seem to ‘suit' certain clubs.

Let's say this from the start: referees are only human. Unfortunately, some are more human than others. I hadn't seen this much yellow and red since my toddler poured ketchup and mustard all over our floor. I was going to title this article something snarky with the words "Geiger Counter" in it, but decided that the officiating mistakes made in this game, while unfortunate and troublesome, didn't warrant a comparison with something as serious as a radiation detection device.
