[SIZE=2][FONT=verdana][COLOR=#000000]Dear Mr Bernstein,
[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE][SIZE=2][FONT=verdana][COLOR=#000000] [/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][FONT=verdana][COLOR=#000000]Have you thought about doing something even more radical and actually taking ownership of English football rather than being lead around by the Premier League?[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][FONT=verdana][COLOR=#000000] [/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][FONT=verdana][COLOR=#000000]Here are a few ideas:[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][FONT=verdana][COLOR=#000000] [/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][FONT=verdana][COLOR=#000000][FONT=Symbol]∑ [/FONT]Merge the FA, Premier League and Football League into one entity with a single governing body of professional football people not affliated to clubs.[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][FONT=verdana][COLOR=#000000][FONT=Symbol]∑ [/FONT]Have a single English football league although still have the top division on it's own TV deal but with a greater percentage being retained by the FA and distributed centrally in the form of increased prize money and other bonuses (see below)[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][FONT=verdana][COLOR=#000000][FONT=Symbol]∑ [/FONT]Similar to the ECB and RFU, greater sums of money to be issued for producing players eligible for the England national side. This would provide additional income to clubs and encourage more home grown talent.[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][FONT=verdana][COLOR=#000000][FONT=Symbol]∑ [/FONT]Introduce a competitive reserve league at all levels with additional prize monies available particularly in the lower divisions. This would help bridge the gap between academy and first team football.[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][FONT=verdana][COLOR=#000000][FONT=Symbol]∑ [/FONT]Introduce a mid winter break for the top division only.[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][FONT=verdana][COLOR=#000000][FONT=Symbol]∑ [/FONT]Scrap the Capital One Cup and Johnsons Paint Trophy and replace with a single competition only available to clubs outside of the top division.[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][FONT=verdana][COLOR=#000000][FONT=Symbol]∑ [/FONT]Restore the reputation of the FA Cup by making it the only cup competition available to the top league clubs, increasing the prize money available and making the Final the last game of the season.[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][FONT=verdana][COLOR=#000000] [/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][FONT=verdana][COLOR=#000000]You have finally made the great leap forward in introducing measures to improve the standard of youth development and for that you should be commended. Now it's time to be even braver and take on the premier league clubs before they render international football moribund.[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]
