"If you want some accessible but informative insight into football then I suggest you couldn't do better than the Political Economy of Football website, which is not only intelligible but comes with the added bonus of being written by Addicks fan Wyn Grant."

AFC Telford seek funds


AFC Telford United are seeking a cash injection of £50,000 to deal with a cash flow problem.  Gate receipts have fallen and some costs have risen.   They also want to change the structure of the club away from control by a supporters' trust to permit external investment.

They have been something of  a yo-yo club and there is always a trade off between financial prudence and spending on players that might bring promotion and higher revenues.
