    FIFA

    Maybe UEFA is going to fuel another corruption scheme, but FIFA is back in the news on corruption again.

    Lots of other places running with the story.

    Three things are true in this world:
    1. Death
    2. Taxes.
    3. FIFA corruption

    Showing your age there Chris!

    Those were the days my friend
    We thought they’d never end
    We’d sing and dance forever and a day
    We’d live the life we choose
    We’d fight and never lose
    For we were young and sure to have our way

    Indeed they were.

    The future is obviously very difficult to predict, but given these seismic events it is hard to believe that football wont be fundamentally changed when we come out the other side.

    Lets all hope it’s for the better. It cant be any worse to be fair.

    A little trip down memory lane with the lovely Mary Hopkin.

    Produced by Paul McCartney and eventually knocked the Beatles Hey Jude off the number 1 spot.

    Those were the first 2 singles released on the newly formed Apple label.

    Sorry, getting bored and thought we could all do with alittle light relief, and it is a lovely song.

    Keep safe every body.

    @Nitram,

    who said loving a piece of music is a matter of age….?!?…
    If this were the case, my loving some pieces of Bach, Mozart, Rousseau, Beethoven would put me in the ‘Highlander’ class…
    Which obviously I am not, too bad !

    But let’s admit I’m getting closer to the ‘at risk’ category withe very birthday.

    Thanks for reading and for your comment !

    I agree with Jigsol. Your blog is a credit to football aside from the snide comma about Manchester City FC.

    Brilliant article.

    This blog is one shining light at the moment.

    I think football will be very different if and when it comes back

    The question is, if it does change, and, surely it, must, how long before the money starts to talk again and take control as it has done until now.

    I truly hope that agents and other middle men are totally removed , sidelined , or banned to cut costs.
    Most of whom may not ever need to work in the future, seeing that they have sucked the game nearly dry.
