VOTV editor Rick Everitt has called for the authorities to intervene in the latest shambles at The Valley. He specifically appeals to local MPs Clive Efford and Matthew Pennycook: Time for intervention
Everitt says, 'It is now time for the football and political authorities to intervene publicly and do what they can to hold this dangerous idiot [Duchatelet] to account.'
On the whole politicians are reluctant to get involved in football issues unless they can see some clear payoff for themselves, although Millwall fan Efford may at least be sympathetic. The English Football League takes a restricted view of its regulatory responsibilities.
