FA’S £21M CUP SPLURGE IS A DIS­GRACE

The Football League Paper - - NEWS -

SHOULD the FA get a re­fund if FIFA fixed the World Cup vot­ing? Maybe, but I’d ask what they were do­ing spend­ing £21m in the first place.

I’ve asked a lot of ques­tions in my life. It’s my job. And the last I checked, none of them left me £21m out of pocket.

Now, I know hand­bags and watches are ex­pen­sive bits of kit. And fly­ing David Beck­ham around the world ain’t cheap either.

But eight fig­ures to ask a sim­ple ques­tion of an or­gan­i­sa­tion ev­ery­one knew was as crooked as a wizard’s fin­ger? In a coun­try where youth coaches scrape by on fif­teen grand a year and grass­roots clubs go bust ev­ery sin­gle week, that’s a dis­grace­ful waste of resources.
