"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."

Northern Ireland clubs given financial warning


I would have to admit that my knowledge of football in the north of Ireland is relatively limited.  Attendances tend to be relatively low and many football fans follow clubs in Scotland or England or even actively support them.    Clubs there have presumably never been in a position to splash out on players.   It is therefore interesting that a warning has been issued to clubs there to watch their finances.
