THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

New report published

icon japanball29 January ~ A report was published today by the Commons Culture Media and Sport Committee in which it issued an ultimatum to English football. The Committee, which previously reported on domestic football governance in July 2011 after concerns were raised about financial management, has said that the necessary reforms must be made within 12 months or the game will face possible legislation. John Whittingdale MP, chair of the Committee, said: "While some progress has been achieved, much greater reform in football is needed to make the game inclusive, sustainable and driven from the grass roots, where it should be."
