Empty seats bad for FA
SOME weeks ago I wrote to Hugh Robertson, the Minister for Sport, to see if he could influence the FA into releasing more seats for Swansea and Bradford supporters at Wembley.
I explained that the 30,000 seats retained for corporate hospitality and other spectators with perhaps only a passing interest in the match could not be justified when so many genuine supporters were left disappointed.
He did not respond, although I wasn't surprised in view of his comments to those who had lost funding after the Olympic Games.
What was disturbing was the number of unoccupied seats at the match which so easily could have been allocated to those so desperate to attend the final.

I trust those with computer facilities, Twitter, etc, will make their views heard so that there is no repeat fiasco, which tarnishes the FA's reputation.
