Project Big Picture

Some words in Parliament last week from Ian Mearns MP, the chair of the FSA All Party Parliamentary Group for Football Supporters:

"Last week we saw England's six richest PL clubs put forward a disgraceful proposal - Operation Big Picture - to restructure the league laced with bribes to EFL clubs many of which are in extreme financial duress, in order to secure their agreement. Thankfully these proposals were rejected but the hares are running, Mr Speaker. So can we have a statement from the secretary of state for DCMS and a debate in Government time about the future of our national game, which is in the heart of millions in our country."

It'd be great if you could give it an RT if you’re on Twitter https://twitter.com/wearethefsa/status/ ... 15680?s=21

The FSA always like to encourage MPs and show interest from fans when they speak out, and we're going to need a lot of Parliamentary support if we are to be successful in forcing the Government to fulfill its manifesto pledge of a "fan led review".

The more MPs sense interest around this, the more likely it is to happen.

I found this an interesting listen for anyone who missed it worth a listen and Gary Neville may surprise a few with his views:

Very interesting, though not that surprising from GN. He seems quite openly socialist.

Though I thought the most effective argument against the top six power-grab would have been Manchester City, who were a second division team not that long ago - back in the days when Leeds and Newcastle were considered 'top six'.
