    This decision just absolutely beggers belief. It seriously does.

    The current line of punishments doesn’t work, and nor will any other punishments that are brought in. The whole idea that clubs will behave properly because of prospective punishments is completely flawed.

    The system is only reactive – there’s no proactive aspect anywhere. Why should Man City’s owners care about the terrible state they’re going to leave the club in in ten years’ time? Why should John Radford care about the implications of him wholly owning Field Mill? The system allows these things to happen.

    We really, really need club licensing. Following Irish football for a couple of years shows that it’s not a perfect system, but it’s still massively better than not having it. We need to be able to say to clubs “No, you can’t separate your ground from your club”, “No, you can’t spend money you don’t have yet” and so on. We need clubs to be assessed on the way they’re run, so that the ones who are run properly are allowed to flourish and the ones who aren’t are quickly identified BEFORE things go sour.
