    “And that issue of course is the possibility that the FA themselves are, at least in part, to blame for the events at Wembley.”

    Exactly. And straight away from reading their statement you can tell they simply do not believe this to be the case.

    For example:

    “A key emphasis of the findings will be to ensure that lessons are learned and such disgraceful scenes are never able to be repeated”.

    Shouldn’t that line read:

    “A key emphasis of the findings will be to ensure that lessons are learned and such INCOMPETENT ORGANISATION is never able to be repeated”

    And shouldn’t this:

    “We continue to work with the relevant authorities in support of their efforts to identify those responsible and hold them to account.”

    Read:

    “We continue to work with the relevant authorities in support of their efforts to identify those PEOPLE AT THE FA responsible and hold them to account”.

    As I say, you can tell straight away their intention is to lay the blame at someone else’s door, simply by the wording of their statement.

    I am and have been in the past, involved in a safety workshop at work. Most people deride such undertakings as at best ‘a waste of time’ or at worst ‘a joke’, but similar to yourself I believe if you don’t try…….

    I go in with my eyes open. I will not change the World. But if I can have even a small influence in getting a single safety measure implemented then it was worth it.

    So on that basis I wish you well on what of course could be a great deal of work for nothing, but you never know.

    Keep up the good work.
