A website trying to buy a football club? That's what Myfootballclub.com is trying to do.

It wants 50,000 people to chip in and buy a club, which they would run on democratic lines, with everyone having a vote on things like team selection.

I see my old club QPR are about to be taken over by Bernie Ecclestone and I was asked, as a manager, who would I sooner work with?

It's certainly easier to have one man to deal with, as opposed to thousands.

Thousands of people picking the team is absolute madness, how are they going to gauge it?

Are they going to base their selection on current form? Does that mean they'll be watching players day-in, day-out doing drills, undergoing practice?

Do they know if players are physically and mentally up for it? Or is a player's wife moaning at him because she's not happy with something, or the kids aren't well?

If people want to put together a consortium and take over a club, OK, but they shouldn't be picking the team.

I think I would take somebody like Bernie Ecclestone all day. BBC
