It can be so easy to jump on a bandwagon, particularly when it comes to race relations.
As I openly pondered what it would take to put together a bid for ailing Glasgow Rangers with some friends the other day, I was stunned by the laughter ringing in my ears.
Football should be proud of the way it responded to a difficult situation So often when we talk about the power of football we typically think in sporting terms. That outrageous ability of the game to evoke passionate emotions, both positive and negative, in fans, players, administrators, even officials.
It would be easy to criticise former England manager Fabio Capello for his team’s poor performances. But why waste time? Had he not resigned, he should have been fired by the Football Association for his embarrassing and damaging response to what should have been a routine decision.
