Fans given club takeover chance

By John Sinnott

A website has been launched with the revolutionary aim of recruiting 50,000 fans to take over a football club.

MyFootballClub wants people to pay £35 in a bid to raise £1.4m to buy a team, with each member an equal partner.

Members will have a vote on transfers as well as player selection and all major decisions affecting the club.

"I've created a vehicle that will pool fans' opinions, passion and wealth and turn fantasy football into reality," creator Will Brooks told BBC Sport.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone who has fallen out of love for the game to rekindle their passion

MyFootballClub creator Will Brooks

A former football journalist, the 36-year-old Brooks, who now works as a copywriter, has spent the last two years developing the idea. "I've met several club owners and ex-managing directors of Championship and Premiership clubs, all of whom were captivated by the concept and believed it to be workable," said Brooks, who is a Fulham supporter.

... we would have six general managers, one head coach, zero assistants, one cornerback, one safety, one linebacker, thirty-one pass-rushing defensive ends, a dozen 6'4" wide receivers, five 6'8" 370 lb. offensive linemen, Patrick Ramsey starting and Peyton Manning backing him up, and 12,604 topless cheerleaders between the ages of 18 and 25.

we'd have at least 50+ washed up old vets, starting w/Lavar "the Motorcycle Riding Restaurantuer" leading the way, in camp for.........drum roll please

"vet min + incentives, what the hell"

and then we'd have 50+ young kids w/no experience because........

"I had a 2nd cousin's, step brother's, best friend who just got out of prison who saw him play ball in high school and he dominated. Just gotta give him a chance I tell ya."

And we would win every game!:applause:

I mean, any team with a GM does great, but with our 6 GMs, we would be unstoppable!

Don't forget, we would demote Vinny and Larry to concessions since they are the worst people to ever perform their respective jobs..............

Can I be in charge of the cheerleaders

I love my fellow ES'ers, but if we ran the team, it'd make Vinny look good instead of goofy.

We'd have 11 WR's on offense and 6 DE and 5 CB on defense. We'd draft a "stud WR" every first round of every draft and every interception thrown would bring another QB in from the sideline. We'd have 3 or 4 Head coaches every year, starting with Cowher. Beer would be free to all ES'ers and season tickets would be renewed for $1.98 for all current season ticket holders. Next year, we'd only have enough money to draft a high school team.

It would only last a year but I think we could go through a billion in about that time.

having 35,000 owners that get to voice their opinions is going to get complicated. might work better if they voted on a board of directors of say 10-20 people and THEORETICALLY run it like the government is 'supposed' to be run. the elected people doing the will of the people.

This is essentially what the Green Bay Packers do isn't it? Aren't they owned by about 50,000 "shareholders"? Not too unsuccessful for them...

And yes, you'd absolutely have to vote in a board of directors, who in turn would hire the team president and GM (that's a guy in charge of football operations for those Skins fans that don't remember what a GM is). Without the board, chaos would reign.

Can I be in charge of the cheerleaders

I'm guessing the best you'd get on that is #2 on the depth chart behind stwasm.

Other than the topless cheerleaders that's just silly...
