Not entirely ‘All About Walsall’ so mods feel free to move to off-topic if necessary, but preliminary report released today from the fan-led review of football as commissioned by the government.
Doesn’t explicitly say that the reason that football at the lower is being shafted is due to the greed of Premier League clubs, but a few interesting points that I spotted that would impact Walsall:-
- Allowing clubs to operate all-weather pitches in League Two to help with generation of revenue in lower leagues.
- Suggestion that the English Football League (EFL) enter discussions to absorb the National League top division into the EFL structure.
Anybody fancy an all-weather pitch at the Bescot (to presumably allow the likes of Villa Under 21s, etc to play on it without jeopardising our own matches)
“The dangers facing English league clubs are “very real”, with key aspects of the nation’s game “at genuine risk”, says the chair of a fan-led review commissioned by the government.”
