The fsf was at Westminster this week giving evidence to the All Party Parliamentary Football Group inquiry into club governance.
Deep stuff we know, but important nonetheless. On the surface it could appear that football has "never had it so good." Dig a little deeper and there are real problems.
Also giving evidence were ex-England chief Howard Wilkinson from the League Managers' Association, the PFA, the FSF's very good friends at Supporters Direct and a rep from FC United of Manchester, just promoted to the Unibond Premier League... the club set up by unhappy Man United supporters after the Glazer takeover at Old Trafford.
The FSF concentrated their contribution on how the FA and the leagues supervise "fit and proper person" tests for club owners and directors - a step in the right direction but needing to be beefed up.
