League's shoot-out plans savaged
Football managers and chairmen have laughed off proposals to decide drawn Football League games with a penalty shoot-out.
League chairman Lord Mawhinney wants to introduce shoot-outs to allocate a bonus point at the end of a drawn game.
Bristol City chairman Steve Lansdown has described the plans as "a crackpot idea" and his Cardiff counterpart Peter Risdale thinks it is a "nonsense idea".
That these ‘plans’ were savaged is not interesting. What’s interesting is that Lord Mawhinney is still somehow in the job when he has so clearly demonstrated that he has not the remotest understanding of the game that employs him.
He should have been sacked the moment – the very moment – this cretinous suggestion emerged from his ignorant mouthbox.
