Football bosses could be quizzed in St George’s Park ‘Question Time’

THE national football centre could soon play host to a series of Question Time style live debates which will feature football managers from across all four divisions of the English leagues.

The programmes are the brain-child of Richard Bevan, the chief executive of the League Managers Association, who has been in talks with BBC radio, Sky Sports and BT Sport to air the debates which will take place before a studio audience, some at St George’s Park, in Burton.

The programmes will basically be modelled along the lines of BBC’s long-running ‘Question Time’ show, which is hosted by David Dimbleby, in which politicians from all the parties debate the big issues of the day and field questions from the audience.

Bevan wants the football programmes to concentrate on ‘technical aspects’ of the game such as how the loan system works, the transfer window and not get drawn into club matters and ‘who is going to play next Saturday’.
