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

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.

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.

Strange that Grimsby. I haven't heard fat Sam and co. complaining about Gill's appointment either. Nothing to do with being good mates with old red nose and Double D not being part of their drinking gang.

DD is the most forward thinking, financially sound director in the EPL and the bridges he could build for us as chairman of the Elite G-14 (for spurs fans - thats the biggest and best of Europe's clubs, by the way, not mid table also rans) and the deals that could be struck, oh joy, What a great position our club finds themselves in, Moving up the league, new stadium, talented young team, genius manager, best striker in the world, CL footy every season and complete future financial security almost assured. Must be fun being a spurts fan nowadays watching the "squatters" embarress their club on every level! Ahhhhhhhhh

71 2004. In any argument between Spuds and Gooners that's all that needs to be said. Any Spuds who have a riposte that is better than that, please, feel free to try. But whatever you say, we've won the league at WHL more times than you have.

ginaza: what is a p@unce? Illiteracy is clearly rife amongst the soap dodging, knuckle dragging brigade that shuffle out of *****e fart lane after yet another home defeat! As for the finals, you gotta be in them to win them and quite frankly, spurts are a million miles away from even getting to any final. When was your last one? Oh yeah the "peace cup" i bet winning that made you feel warm and fuzzy all over! It was a glorious day parading the Premiere League trophy around the Lane, i hope you all enjoyed watching a successful team for once?
