DYKE BOWS TO THE UNTOUCHABLES
WHO will replace Greg Dyke as FA Chairman? Who cares? It’s not like they’ll be able to accomplish anything.
The FA is an archaic organisation that belongs to a different century, where untouchable councillors and committee members can veto anything they want.
Graham Taylor famously realised that, as England manag- er, he was “less important than the council member for Norfol”.
Decisions are made at a snail’s pace, if at all.Piffling parochial concerns are allowed to obscure the greater good.
And, of course, any attempt at reform is blocked in the interests of self-preservation.
Like so many before him, Dyke eventually grew tired of their soul- sapping intransigence. His comment that the post required a “more conciliatory figure” was an admission that only a meek yesman, willing to indulge the cartel, could possibly relish the role.
I’d say it’s not what we need, but it really doesn’t matter.
Until the power of the council can be diluted or demolished,the job is nothing but ceremonial.
