Blueprint for Football book – what do you want discussed?
Neal Widdows is currently writing a book provisionally named ‘a blueprint for football’ and the idea is that the book will act almost like a manifesto from football supporters across England’s four senior divisions, illustrating precisely what the people who really care about the game want from English football.
The idea is to come up with a list of topic areas decided upon by fans, and then use those opinions to create a survey where fans then vote on what changes they want to see in the English game.
Listed below is some of the topics he has drawn up so far:
Finance: FFP, Wage Caps
Tickets: Prices, away allocations, away prices, cost of away travel, categoristion
Technology and Refereeing Standards
How to help the national team
League Structure: League 3 etc
Supporter Experience: Concourses, Food, Disabled Access etc
Television: Sky or terrestrial, PPV etc
Governance: Premier League, FA
Merchandise: Kit Prices, Frequency of new kits etc
Neal is now carrying out research on what other topics fans want to see in the book, and has contacted the supporters trusts of all 92 clubs to ask for their opinions on what they want to discuss.
