"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."

Big plans for Bangor City


A Cheshire-based consortium that has taken over Bangor City has big plans for the North Wales club, They plan to pump in at least £100,000 a year as they seek to end the domination of the Welsh Premier Leage by The New Sants.   The real attraction is perhaps not the WPL title, but the chance of Champions League football.

Former Barrow and Chester City owner Stephen Vaughan was present at the press conference launching and the deal and announced himself as the club's new shirt sponsor.   However, it was stated that he will not have any involvement in the running of the club.

Vaughan was the first person to fail the Football League's fit and proper person test.   He is banned from being a director of any company until 2020 after a 'VAT carousel fraud' while he was a director of Rugby League club Widnes Vikings.
