  9. Freddy Shepherd

    Anyone seen Freddy Shepherd's latest inane ramblings on the BBC. Apparently "big clubs" shouldn't be concerned about the welfare of smaller league clubs. Also the EPL clubs should be running the whole league setup in England, I wonder how Freddy thinks all the FL's cash...
