LONDON -- The English Football Association is facing a no-confidence vote in the House of Commons and the enforced overhaul of decision-making functions dominated by elderly men. British legislators made the announcement after being told by former FA leaders that the governing bodys failure to challenge the financial might of the Premier League contributes to the England teams embarrassing failures.In a letter to the parliamentary committee overseeing sport, five ex-FA executives called for the appointment of a football regulator to modernize their former employer and make it more representative of modern society. The committees head said he is planning to introduce legislation to impose governance reforms on the FA.The FA is coming under attack from former executives and legislators while trying to grapple with the biggest crisis in its 153-year history over past sexual abuse of youth team players. The FAs limited response when allegations first surfaced against coaches and clubs in the 1990s is subject of an internal review, while police forces across the country have opened investigations.The England national team has also gone through a year of turmoil, with a loss to unfancied Iceland in the round of 16 at the European Championship leading to the departure of manager Roy Hodgson. Successor Sam Allardyce was then forced out after one game over unguarded comments to journalists posing as businessmen, and Gareth Southgate was hired in the continuing quest to produce the countrys first trophy since the 1966 World Cup.The lack of success on the international stage is in part a result of governance failings within the FA, according to Greg Dyke, David Bernstein and David Triesman, the past three FA chairmen, ex-general secretary Alex Horne and former executive director David Davies.In their letter to legislators, the quintet expressed hope that the woeful lack of English players or managers and the embarrassing failures of our national team for the past 50 years is redressed by changes to decision-making bodies.They complain that the Premier League holds too much sway over English football due to their financial might and the way financial contributions are wielded at every turn to assert beneficial positions. The FA has little oversight of the worlds richest soccer competition, which was the result of a 1992 breakaway from the Football League by leading clubs.It is little wonder that English football is out of balance, wrote Dyke, Bernstein, Triesman, Horne and Davies. The FA has neither the modernity of approach nor independence required to counter the EPL juggernaut, or to modernize its own governance.They highlight how those in senior positions in FA structures are by a significant majority, white, elderly men and collectively unrepresentative of English society and English football in 2016.Those concerns are shared by Damian Collins, chairman of the culture, media and sport committee, who said he wants the FA Council to have a more inclusive membership and term limits of 10 years.There is currently no effective governing body for football in England that is capable of responding to the challenges that face the modern game, Collins said, outlining plans for a parliamentary vote expressing no confidence in the FA.The committee is working with the parliamentary authorities to prepare a draft bill to deliver the necessary reform to the structure of the FA.Such a move could flout FIFAs rules banning any form of political interference in federations.The FA insisted that it was currently working on governance reforms. In a sign of the tensions within the English game, the Premier League said the FA had failed to deliver reforms and trumpeted its own investment in facilities.

Inter president Erick Thohir says in a club statement on Wednesday that Vidic is "one of the worlds best defenders and his qualities, international pedigree, and charisma will be an asset. http://www.canadajerseyscheap.com/?tag=cheap-colorado-avalanche-jerseys-canada . Speaking to the Chicago Tribune at baseballs Winter Meetings in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, Boras called the former home of the Expos a "tremendous environment" for baseball. Cheap New York Mets Jerseys Canada . He just needed to be his best twisting, turning acrobatic self. "I didnt need to be anybody else, I just needed to be myself and be aggressive," said Burks, who scored a career-high 34 points to spark the Utah Jazz to a 118-103 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Monday night. Cheap NBA Jerseys Canada . The 27-year-old Scrivens will be joining his third NHL club since signing with the Toronto Maple Leafs as a free agent in 2010. The move also reunites with him with head coach Dallas Eakins from their time together with the American Hockey Leagues Toronto Marlies. If relief had a face, it would be that of Stephen Cook. The South Africa opener scored the second hundred of his six-Test career - which sounds pretty decent if you think about it - under immense pressure, as he sought to prove his worth in Australia. He can leave knowing that he succeeded.Cook was the last man out in South Africas second innings in Adelaide, as he made 104 out of a total of 250, having batted for over six hours. He helped South Africa set a target of 127, which Australia chased down with seven wickets to spare.Ive had a tough time the last couple of weeks, thats plain and obvious to say, Cook said after the day-night Test ended. Before the series I knew things were going to be tough. I knew the Aussies had a good bowling line-up. And I got tested. By hook or by crook, I suppose - by hook or by Cook- I managed to come through.With scores of 0, 12, 23, 11 and 40 in the previous five innings on the tour, and growing uncertainty with his footwork, Cook faced severe criticism over his technique. He spent some sessions with long-time team-mate and current South Africa batting coach Neil McKenzie working on his trigger movement but admitted he never intended to change his entire approach, especially it had served him so well for the best part of the previous decade and a half.It wasnt a pretty show but Ive never been a pretty cricketer, Cook said. I know its not classical. I know its a little bit ugly. I know I crab across the crease. Ive heard many descriptions of it. Unfortunately, this technique is the one Ive got and the one Ive used for a long time. Its gotten me so far - yes, Ill do little tweaks and try and make amendments - and by and large I stick with what Ive got and try make it work for me.I dont think Im ever going to jump onto the front foot like Ricky Ponting or move in and behind the ball like some other playerss.dddddddddddd For me its about getting my game plan going and keeping my disciplines going. Cooks patience was the hallmark of his hundred, as he defended tirelessly and refused to be dislodged. He knew that the longer he hung on, the better the chance he had to make an impression on the toughest stage he has played on to date. I knew Australia is a place you can be made or broken. Im leaving with people perhaps being able to see that I can bat better than I have these last few weeks.The fight for runs was particularly tough against Mitchell Starc, who dismissed Cook in four out five innings in the series. It was difficult with angles. You dont get many left-armers who bowl 150 kph, so he had my number, Cook said. That was the battle - to get away from him and score enough runs at the other end.Cook attributed his turnaround to experience and the strong support he received from team-mates and family.There have been a lot of times in my career where Ive gone on streaks longer than this without scoring runs. The nice thing is that I never felt like I was playing that badly. I never felt like I wasnt picking up the ball or that Ive got no chance. I felt things turned around for me on this tour on a personal level [when my family arrived]. My family doesnt care whether Ive scored nought or a hundred. My little daughter looks at me the same way today as she looked at me three weeks ago. It shows you whats really important.The morning before the Adelaide Test, Cook, his wife Laura and young daughter Elianna were strolling around the Torrens river. He even took the time to cheer on some jogging journalists. At no point on the tour did Cook seem weighed down by his difficulties. In the end, its just a game of cricket.
