- Where will each of the top clubs be after another six games? Here’s the answer.
- Farewell hooligans, farewell facts, hello anger. Why the football debate is now so unhealthy.
By Tony Attwood
I am not sure that I have ever previously handed over an article on Untold to an outside youtube blogger, but I have had this video blog pointed out to me and I think it makes the point that seems apposite so clearly, that I really do want to spread the word. If nothing else to show that it is not just Untold that asks the question that is raised at the end of this video.
At the end the blogger points out that referees are not allowed to oversee games involving the teams they support or their biggest rivals. Then he asks…
“In an era when two of the Premier League’s most pre-eminent clubs are owned by the vice president of the UAE and the sovereign wealth fund of Saudi Arabia, why on earth would the PGMOL allow its leading match officials to take lucrative assignments and contracts in the UAE and Saudi Pro League?”
He does not give an answer to that question, but we might speculate on a few.
- PGMO is itself totally incompetent and doesn’t know what it is doing and thus can’t see the danger of the situation it is in.
- PGMO has been bought by the owners of certain clubs to ensure that their clubs get the best calls.
- Errr…. I can’t think of a third explanation. If you can please write in. But if we don’t have any reasonable answers, it has to be one of those two.
If you have another answer please do say.
