Thanks. It's not a paper I read normally.


His articles are a great read. Wouldn't surprise me if he turns up at The Athletic eventually.

Good article but a shame it got some typical Times reader responses. Not all Times readers mind you, but there’s still a hangover of ‘if it doesn’t pay its own way its not worth saving’ mentality. Or ‘football should put its own house in order’. In an ideal world it should, but the governing bodies of British football are no longer fit for purpose.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

I guess that's understandable when you consider that lower / non league football means nothing to many people, so I think it's really great that someone like Gregor (with a decent and rising profile as a journalist) keeps banging the drum, and the connection to us is a nice bonus too.
Similarly, I've just caught Look North at lunchtime, and (living in Yorkshire) they were talking about the plight of some rugby league teams and my initial thought (uncaringly) was "so what", but I then realised that is how the majority of people would view our plight really
