So......

The problem I have with the football set up, both financial and regulatory is this:

One day it will ‘do for’ @ASFCofficial whatever I do.

There is no light at the end of the tunnel.

This is where @FA @EFL @premierleague have taken football.

No longer is football..
..about supporters, communities, towns, social cohesion, health and well being.

It’s about money and gambling.

The specific problem is that by doing the right thing to keep your club solvent and well run, you’re actually destroying its future.

There is only so long..
..clubs run properly can survive against a tidal wave of money being thrown at football.

A tidal wave of money that does not give two shits about the real reason for football or our pyramid.

A tidal wave of money that doesn’t give two shits about the clubs used in the gamble.
A tidal wave of money that perversely is seeing more and more clubs unable to pay their players or their bills.

A tidal wave of money in a game that still can’t afford grassroots pitches clear of dog shit for kids to get healthy emulating their overpaid superstars.
A tidal wave of money that is destroying @EFL who are impotent and have no hope of resisting its surge.

The level of distress in the game is DIRECTLY proportional to the amount of money in the game.

This level of distress can only be because those running it are failing..
..to regulate properly. How can we have wages not being paid at peak-cash football?

Football has never been richer.

I know there’s a choice coming for @ASFCofficial

Either...
Football is regulated properly, football club businesses run in the same way normal businesses are, with the long term health of the pyramid as priority.

Or...

All clubs have to join in the madness.

The playing field is being tipped against clubs doing the right thing.
The choice is simple.

Either gamble and risk our clubs existence.

Or run sensibly and risk a slow painful death.
Two examples and I’ll leave you alone for a bit😂😂

1. @buryfcofficial are on their arse, they’ve been overspending for years. This is not news.

They have run out of cash and anything can happen now.

@PFA lent them money (as they did @OfficialBWFC ) to finish their season.
Then having gambled their club @buryfcofficial get promoted

How on gods earth can this be right, @PFA getting this club over the line? This is telling clubs recklessness pays!

2. @OfficialBWFC have been allowed to run up debts for years on end, the same is happening all over...
the pyramid now. @PFA paid their wages earlier in season and again at the end. They still could not finish their season FFS! @EFL advanced them money too. They are on their arse.

But remember these organisations are US, OURS, football clubs and players.

We are all responsible.
Good morning BTW.
