Football League Want To Scrap The Transfer Window

Football League Want To Scrap The Transfer Window

Lord Mawhinney and the Football League normally have about as much backbone as a snail, but if his stance over the current regulations governing the transfer window is anything to go by, he might be about to grow one.

In a four page letter to Culture Secretary Andy Burnham, the FL Chairman asks for greater transparency over finances within the game and also wants tougher sanctions on clubs that go into administration. The letter is in reply to questions asked by the government over the running of the Premier League and Football League.

Lord Mawhinney told the BBC that FIFA was dead set against changes to the current transfer window, that runs from 1 July to 31 August and 1 to 31 January. The Chairman wants to see the government intervene and help make the changes to domestic transfers. Mawhinney said. 'We are proposing their should be a distinction between domestic and international transfers. Fifa remain implacably opposed to altering the current transfer window system, Government help would be needed if it was to be altered to allow domestic transfers. We think the original idea was to regulate international player transfers'

Lord Mawhinney might actually have a fighting chance with FIFA, but only if he can get the backing of the government. His attempts to get a bigger share of TV revenue from the Premier League though, will probably be less so.

In a week where they have just entered the race to hold the world cup, i very much doubt anyone will be wanting to upset FIFA with regards to changing the transfer window, No, i would just say that Lord Mawhinney is just as spineless as he has always been.
