"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."

Football and the law


Like it or not football is increasingly becoming entangled with the law.   The number of lawyers specialising in sports law is growing all the time.   The implementation of Uefa's financial fair play scheme is likely to be challenged in the courts.

Hence it is very helpful to have an authoritative website run by a lawyer and dealing with some of these issues, e.g., there is an article on the recent penalties imposed by Uefa on some clubs.
