Here's One For The Spurs Fans

Here's One For The Spurs Fans

After years of Tottenham fans complaining, whining and moaning about David Dein being on the board at the FA, and banging on about 'conflict of interest' they finally got their way when Double D was not re-elected to continue in that post, well it turns out our fearless leader has something else in the pipeline.

It has been anounced today that David Dein, vice-chairman of Arsenal football club has been elected of football super group G-14.

G-14 have issued this statement.

'G-14, the only club based international football organisation, today elected a new president and management committee.

G-14`s statutes require the G-14 General Assembly, which is the representative body made up of the eighteen member clubs, to elect new officers, who are responsible for setting the strategy of the organization, every two years.

This year, for the first time, the management committee has been expanded from five to six members.

The G-14 Assembly has asked David Dein, of Arsenal, to be its new chairman. Mr Dein has accepted the post subject to approval from the Arsenal board.'

David Dein himself had this to say on the matter, "I hope that as chairman of G-14 I will be able to build bridges with UEFA and FIFA. I want to bring about change harmoniously and constructively. There are issues, such as player release, insurance and the [international football] calendar, which remain a source of dissatisfaction for many professional football clubs, not just G-14 ones. We think these can be resolved if we all work together. I hope that over the next nine months we can achieve this.''

Well done Mr Dein.

Let the whinging commence.

Where there is discord, may he bring harmony. Where there is error, may he bring truth. Where there is doubt, may he bring faith. And where there is despair, may he bring hope. It's only a matter of time before David Dein is knighted for his services to football.
Lex touched me.

David Dean is a mutha ****in' GANG STARR! Look at the twinkle in his eyes. I bet he would make you an offer you couldn't refuse if you rubbed him the wrong way. All Hail the Godfather of English football (what's left of it).

Why is it that your obsession with Tottenham continues? They do not seem to have the same obsession with you! Perhaps it is that you are more concerned about them than they are with you....arrogance....probably!

Why on earth would this affect Tottering or even Chavski come to think of it?? To my knowledge neither are in the G14 and having burned so many bridges in Chelsea's case have no hope of joining.

think that this is great for Arsenal , David Dein should deserve full credit for his services to football !
05/10/2006 08:27:00
My recollection is of various Spurs/Man Utd press boys(in The Mail)) banging on about David Dein's perceived conflict of interest,I believe Big Fat Sam also had a dig.Only for these****s to same perfectly happy to have David Gill the Chairman Of Manure take his place....oh the hypracy.
