Five reforms and one last chance

This isn’t a post, it’s just a suggestion of what you should read. The first article I’d recommend is one by David Conn in yesterday’s Guardian, entitled After the Super League fiasco: five reforms that could save the game

The five reforms are:

  • Fairer distribution of money
  • ‘Golden share’ in clubs for supporters
  • Supporter representatives on club boards
  • Strengthened and continual ‘fit and proper persons’ test
  • An independent regulator

Also in the Guardian, there’s an article by Andy Burnham: After the Super League fiasco, we have one last chance to reclaim English football. He suggests legislation based on the German 50 +1 principle. It’s also worth reading.
