This story in the Guardian the PL are investigating to run some schools under the government’s new concept of ‘free schools’.
Now I am a labour supporter so this is not about discussing the concept of this but rather the idea a failed organisation like the PL would want to run schools. This effects Villa as we are an equal shareholder in the PL and we should be against this idea for the following reasons
1) Any spare money should be used to develop football’s grass roots
2) The PL should not be involved in what will be a political hot potato in future years
3) Villa already have a very good scheme in liaising with local schools and this should be the better aim of liaising at local level
The overall point is that the PL has proved to be incapable of running it’s own affairs (Thaskin at Man City, the Pompey debacle) and we should be an honourable club and slap down Scudamore for such a stupid idea.
In fact I would like Villa to be a forefront of leading a reform revolution against the PL and remembering what our great history is and remember what McGregor stood for.
For brilliance and, at the same time consistency of achievement, for activity in philanthropic enterprise, for astuteness and management and for general alertness, the superiors of Aston Villa cannot be found.
