Football: A job for John Terry

To allow the experience and leadership of John Terry to leave Chelsea would be a ‘criminal’ act against the sport of football.┬áThe Chelsea Academy of young potentials would benefit greatly from John’s commitment, knowledge and footballing nous.

He would give Chelsea the chance to progress Chelsea schooled youngsters through to the first team. Thus ending the dreadful record of frustrated Chelsea youngsters being no more than loanees to other clubs around the world.

To say nothing of the savings on purchasing high cost contracts from competing academies!

Football: Bring in technology – NOW!

The standard of referees and linesmen is poor. And most times its not their fault.

Nowadays the game is a lot faster putting added demands on referees and linesmen. So many matches are marred by bad calls that potentially affect the game being played, the loyal fans wanting fairness, and clubs who in some cases stand to lose millions. To say nothing about being deprived of top honours due to bad decisions on the field.

Just watched a prestigious match between Manchester City and Monaco. The entertainment provided by two outstanding attacking teams was a joy. However the defence of both teams was poor, the performance by the referee was poor, and linesmen decisions were below par.

Why on earth is technology being purposely blocked with the pathetic excuse that it would kill the soul of the game. Also a very dubious Yellow Card was handed out. Wrongly delivered cards once again impinge on fairness and the future progress of the penalised team.

Backup can be provided to the match referee in a matter of seconds most times. With common sense, technology will vastly improve the fun that is football.

CLEAN UP THE BILLION POUND GLOBAL FOOTBALL INDUSTRY.
