I KNEW that quip was coming!

No, I am still a nailed on capitalist because I have never seen a scrap of evidence to suggest that any alternative might work.

However I also believe in benevolence and if you look at the track record of the world's richest people in history many were huge donors to so many projects and causes that helped millions if not billions of people.

Bill Gates at present is 50% funding the project to globally irradiacate Polio. Warren Buffet is actively gifting away 99% of his $60Bn personal wealth before he leaves us.

Football has made so many PL players and managers multi-millionaires. Meantime non-league clubs have lost the ability to sell players to professional clubs to keep the wheels turning.

Leafe sold Steve Milton to Fulham for £35,000 25 years ago. That's never going to happen again is it?

If the elite players and managers gave one week's wages a year (with 40% tax relief if a Charitable Trust is set up) the grass-roots of football could be transformed.
