icon appeal14 December ~ Last Monday in Westminster the subject of football governance was discussed by the All Party Parliamentary Group for Mutuals. Representatives from organisations such as the FA, Premier League and Football League were present alongside members of Supporters Direct. It was a discussion that those who run football and the clubs didn't want to happen, and thus marked a significant turning point in the debate. It allowed a platform for the current methods of running the game to be challenged and viable alternatives to be explored, as Martin Cloake discussed in the New Statesman.
