    Money to grassroots football.

    Because that's what is missing from the game (And stopping it filter down), excess cash.

    Wasnt the Costa Rica match at Elland Road last night in front of a relatively small crowd but with a great atmosphere?
    Who needs Wembley?

    If Wembley is sold then all future England home games will still be played there - the point was made that the FA will retain 'club wembley' hospitality and the FA won't make as much money from it at any other stadium

    I thought it was a perfectly valid question.

    I really think it's great seeing the national team around the country. Not so London centric for a change and will give many many more kids the chance to see England play because they woulnd't need to woory about hours f travelling and the cost.

    Teaboy It definitely looks brighter over there..

    All these points about the crowd at Leeds and England should travel more are absolutely spot on but are reasons why Wembley should never have been re-built in the first place. It was obvious after they knocked the first Wembley down that there was no need to replace it but apparently 'England need a national stadium'.

    Now of a sudden someone is offering to take it off their hands for far less than they spent building and running it it's 'a great opportunity for English football'. Well why didn't they just use that money more wisely in the first place.

    I've been in and around businesses when big acquisitions take place and it is always massively ker-ching time for the senior officials who make the deal. Make no mistake the sole reason the FA are keen on the idea is snouts in the trough.
