I wrote a long time back about ways that I thought football could and should be improved.
Here’s a simple one:
Get rid of Sepp Blatter…
Now we shall see if FIFA can be reformed enough to move beyond being an organised crime syndicate or whether it will be a return to business as usual. It’s quite clear that FIFA – as it stands – really stinks. I was very impressed by the FBI spokesman who talked about the arrests and extradition applications they’d issued. He spoke of the beautiful game and all that it means to so many people worldwide. It is long past time that FIFA took responsibility for its own ugliness – if not then whilst I don’t think football is doomed, FIFA surely is.
