If there has been one fundamental sea change in the politics of football over the last twelve months, it has been that more and more people are finally asking the question of who owns their football club. Whereas ten or twenty years ago a football club was a nice, convenient place for someone to hide out and, if they wished to, keep a low profile, nowadays football club owners from the very top to the very bottom find themselves under intense scrutiny as people – rightly – start to look into the ownership of their clubs. Every football supporter, these days, has to be fully clued up on economics, insolvency law and business practice these days. Anyway, this video has turned up on YouTube, a somewhat satirical look at the businesses that are behind football in England. It is, as the makers say, a work in progress, so feel free to add to the comments and allow them to refine their list.
