This'll be interesting.

Is football fit for purpose?

A House of Commons inquiry into the governance of football begins on Tuesday, with Lord Triesman, the former Football Association chairman, among those due to give evidence.

The cross party committee of MPs are carrying out an inquiry into the governance of football.

They are seeking answers in written and verbal form around a number of key areas, including:

1) Should football clubs in the United Kingdom be treated differently from other commercial organisations?

2) Are football governance rules in England and Wales - and the governing bodies that set and apply them - fit for purpose?

3) Is there too much debt in the professional game?

4) What are pros and cons of the supporter trust shareholding model?

5) Is government intervention justified? If so, what form should it take?

The Sports Minister Hugh Robertson recently described football as the "worst run sport in the country."

In their election manifesto, the Conservatives promised a "wide package of reform of football finance and governance".

In the House of Commons there have been a number of questions raised by MPs across the benches about the current state of the game, fuelled by the disappointing performance of the England team at the World Cup, concerns about debt, bankruptcy, club ownership, and supporter disengagement.

Ahhh no wonder there’s rumblings all over. Ex chairman Lord Triesman has been saying it was impossible to make any changes and that the PL (1 Not 2) viewed the FA as the competition. Plus that odious rat Scudamore has been defending the PL (again 1 Not 2) at every opportunity

I hope they really take a good long look at the way football is organised and fine the fuck out of chelsea and drop 1500 points of them every season for the next 20 seasons as a warning to others.

i think the clubs themselves are the least of thier problems

Ch! pa! Sticking up for chelsea are you? They're scum and you know it. Boot them out the league or change their name to scumbag pansies united and make them wear a pink kit with "I'm a bummer" written on the back of every shirt.

Hate to be the cynic on this. But the committee will be yet another toothless tiger in the fight against big money in football.

Prolly won't have a penis either - courtesy of the Far East betting syndicates.

The government interfering in things that "ordinary people" like, involving an industry they don't really understand, run by people who will financially run rings around them?

Sounds a bit like the pubs and brewing industry.

We start with legislation to impose a requirement for a guest beer option in every pub, and a few steps later we end with the four quid pint, pubs shutting down left, right and centre, breweries that don't brew beer anymore but instead run hotel chains, and pub companies that are trying to re-invent themselves as property companies.

Everyone's a winner - except the "ordinary people" it was supposed to help in the first instance.

It will be interesting to see what happens to football.

£200 match tickets... home games played in Abu Dhabi... and if you can get a ticket, you'll be lucky if your club - if it still exists - plays handball, but is to planning to take up polo instead.

Your second link is quite interesting, Scudamore suggests that the purchase of Torres for £50m would be applauded in other spheres of enterprise.  I thought most successful businesses ran on the model that they make profits, some of these profits are then ploughed back into the business.  I'm guessing if we looked at Chelsea's balance sheet then it certainly wouldn't be balanced or weighted in favour of profit.
