Just about managing

Wondering what's involved in the latest takeover at Portsmouth and all the other finance-related fantasy football moves rattling around the media - or not, when frankly they should be? As far as the English game is concerned (with one or two additional forays into other nations), the Football Management site maintained by John Beech from Coventry University is unrivalled. Hat-tip to the Sonstrust and Campbell Yule on this one.

Beech is a co-director of the Centre for the International Business of Sport and a widely published author on various aspects of sports management and English football management in particular. It's worth keeping an eye on the Supporters' Direct blog too. How we need an equivalent website for Scottish football. The future of the Scottish game was subject to an interesting debate at Stirling University on 2 October 2009. More on that anon.
