'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Michel Platini: 'FIFA Must Come Back To Football'

The bribery scandal involving various FIFA officials is coming home to roost. There is chaos among the hundreds of independent Football Associations from around the globe with new allegations being disclosed, almost on a daily basis.

The English FA is going to abstain on Wednesday's FIFA presidential election vote but they should go one further and threaten to resign from the organisation altogether. I am sure if they did more influential countries such as Brazil, Germany, Holland and the like would follow suit. Top FIFA officials are going to cripple football as we know it unless corruption and bribery is stamped out for good. Something has to be done. Not tomorrow but TODAY.

I would get rid of Blatter, get to the bottom of this bribery farce and hand out life time bans to the people involved. Sort this ***** out, it is pathetic

Every footballing nation, which is around the 210 mark should abstain from the election vote. How can anyone take Blatter seriously? In fact any word he speaks is nothing more than contempt in my opinion.

Abstaining from the vote this time round is pointless as there's only 1 candidate now. Blatter is unopposed yet again. The whole organisation is rotten to the core and needs to be taken apart and rebuilt from the bottom up.

Platini is bent too, the entire FFP scam is to protect the established elite. You can be a major club 300 trillion in debt but if you make 200 million in shirt sales, you can spend it. Or you can be a less major club with no debt but if you make 2 million in shirt sales, that's all you can spend. Farcical.

FIFA and UEFA are both very powerful organisations. Both are 'monsters' out of control. Their wealth is obscene and they seem to enjoy impunity from any form of scrutiny. This can't go on. Time for the heavyweights to involve themselves. Politicians, Sponsors, and Football Authorities need to sharpen themselves up, and keep on the case.
