Breakaway Isolation

The reaction across Europe to news that six English football clubs, in tandem with another six, three each from Spain and Italy, want to have their own European ‘Super League’ has been commendably unified in condemnation.

 

We join that condemnation without reservation.

 

A number of so-called big clubs have been down this road before and they have failed to get similar ideas off the ground. They must fail again and if needed, all these clubs must be thrown out of all leagues and other competitions in which they currently participate.

 

Further to that, their players must also be considered as not required for their national teams and most importantly, the chairman, boards of directors and senior officials banned from all and any involvement in football at any level – permanently.

 

We routinely ban people from driving when they abuse the trust placed in them by driving carelessly, negligently or under the influence of alcohol and drugs. We equally routinely ban people from working with children or any other vulnerable groups when a similar trust is abused. As we do from other activities when trust is breached.

 

We must do the same when megalomaniac and just plain greedy football club owners and officials conspire to create an exclusive cabal, into which no outsiders can be admitted and no ‘founding’ member relegated. Done not for any good reason, but solely to grasp more money and keep it for themselves.

 

If these clubs proceed with this wretched plan, we say to football authorities at all levels, wave the clubs goodbye and de-register the players. To the players we say, leave these clubs. A so-called ‘top’ club isn’t anything without top players. Play for somebody else. To sponsors and other backers, drop them like a stone – people won’t want, or should not want – your products if they are associated with this despicable plan. And to fans we say take your support elsewhere.

 

Let these so-called elite clubs have nothing and they will be nothing.

Sold Out and awaiting a new print run - Heathrow Airport 70 Years and Counting

A second edition of Kevan James' earlier history of Heathrow, brought up to just before the December general election in the UK, and including the latest developments concerning the new runway. Controversially, the author calls for two new runways at the airport and not just one. The book also includes a direct comparision with New York's John F. Kennedy airport - Heathrow's busiest route. With three new chapters and substantially re-written throughout, the book will attract those interested in social history and development, as well as aviation and airport enthusiasts.

A solid, hardback book with a RRP of £19.99.

Reader's Remarks on Heathrow Airport 70 Years and Counting:

Kevan James has knitted his own personal reflections and experiences into what could otherwise have been a considerably less compelling narrative, had it been purely historical. His personal anecdotes, experiences and reflections throughout the book make it a compelling read for anybody who has known and experienced Heathrow in any capacity. 

(Paul S. London, UK)

 

This is a well-written and interesting account of Heathrow’s history – the most interesting airport in Britain. It’s good to know where it came from and what happened there, and to reflect on what goes on behind the scenes, and where it might be going in the future.

(Matt Falcus, The Airport Spotting Blog - http://www.airportspotting.com/)

The heart and soul of the world's most iconic airport

Books have always been a part of life and even today, they are still.

The printed book, and for that matter magazines and newspapers, face a challenging time in the face of the digital onslaught but there is nothing like a book; a tangible thing that one can hold, feel, and yes, love also.

The digital version is a flimsy on-screen nothing, swiped away with the flick of a finger, deleted when done with.

A book may last more than a lifetime.
