Just a quickie…

… before I head off for two weeks holiday.
It’s hard to know what to make of the life-time ban that FIFA’s Ethics Committee have handed out to Mohammed Bin Hammam (1). To my mind, it’s a bit like the PG Tips Chimps Etiquette Committee handing out a life-long ban for bad table manners. Unlike Jack Warner’s threatened tsunami, I suspect this will have legs, with a likely visit to CAS (2).
I’m heading off, sans laptop, so will not be blogging or moderating comments for two weeks. I’d hoped to have a couple of postings – one on how fans were viewed in the context of fan ownership in the sixties, and one on a non-league club and its long-running saga of financial issues – but I’m afraid these will have to wait. Meanwhile, best wishes to all readers, especially those who are also starting a fortnight’s holiday.
