International rescue

Midweek international friendlies... What's the point of them? Players pull out left right and centre, club mangers moan about them, and in the end we end up watching average players playing for their countries, these average players then end up going back to their clubs demanding bigger, better contracts and then demand a move to a bigger club and end up wasting away out on loan somewhere... Just look at David Nugent, David Bentley, Michael Ricketts and Jay Bothroyd to name a few. 

The FA charge a packet to watch England play, isn't it about time that kids for a quid should be the normality every time The Three Lions play? With half empty stadiums up and down the county the men in suits need to take a long hard look at what direction football is going in, the everyday man can no longer afford the prices being quoted. 

We all like a good moan, but it's safe to say that in the eyes of FIFA that football is untouchable when it comes to making money... They fail to make any statements on administration or debt, except this one joke rule about fair-play and finances that the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City have managed to exploit with made up naming rights.... spare a thought for the likes of Swindon and Portsmouth who thought that Monopoly money was real.... Their fans could end up without a club come the end of 2013.
