"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."

'No worries' says Chainrai


Balram Chainrai has brushed aside concerns expressed by the Football League about whether he is a suitable person to run a football club, but the future of Portsmouth FC is once again uncertain.

His Portpin group was thought to be favoured by the administrators to take Portsmouth out of administration.   However, the reservations expressed by the football authorities put the Portsmouth Supporters' Trust in pole position.

Questions about the Supporters' Trust have always related to the funds at their disposal.  However, the football authorities might not be unhappy to see an experiment in which a Supporters' Trust is allowed to take control at a major club.
