England ... or REAL Football ??

Well ... it's a no-brainer for me anyway !!!  

Always the case when the non-league teams note that their fixtures coincide with an Ingerrlund game ... must admit it DOES cause grief regarding attendances - but why ???  Do we care how the national team does ?? Yes it's those same players earning obscene amounts of money that - thanks to Sky TV and their cronies - is slowly but surely attempting to kill the game at grass roots level.   Kettering Town FC were 'wound up' recently with debts of £58,000 ... yes £58,000 ... I believe Gareth Bale earns that much IN ONE DAY.

I know the FA and all them suits wobble on about grass roots football - but they're merely paying lip service to the lower levels while trousering the money from Mr Murdoch - and dare I say it BBC/ITV as well - and making sure that most of it stays at the top level.

Makes me sick ...

Hey ho - tonight I'll be up at Seel Park watching Mossley attempt to get their first bloody win of the season against Clitheroe (who are just one place - 17th -above the Lilywhites).  I trust there will be a good number of people out there giving two fingers to the national team in favour of their local clubs ...  round here we have Droylsden at home to Blyth tonight (big up to any Blyth fan who makes the long trek), and Hyde FC v Radcliffe Boro in the Manky Cup.

... and as an afterthought I'll be looking out for the result from Marston Road tonight - new man in charge (OK temp) at Stafford Rangers following their "Played 7 Lost 7" start to the season - good luck to Andy Mutch, and lets hope the team put on a show and give Marine a good stuffing !
