Blueprint for Football book – what do you want discussed?

21st May, 2014

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

Disciplinary Process

Merchandise: Kit Prices, Frequency of new kits etc

Winter Break

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.
