  1. Great resource Dan! Say hi to Dave for me. It’s been a while.

    You were both on my mind last week. I was in Milan to speak at a CSR event (tough job I know) and had a great time revisiting football when talking to a great guy called Filip Lundberg. He’s working at Djurgardens IF in Stockholm (one of, if not the first officially certified CSR reporters in football no less!) – definitely somebody to have on your radar if not already!

    Keep up the great work!

    • Hi David, apologies – only just been notified of your comment! And thanks – it means a lot to get support from you. Milan…I am not moving past Manchester these days! Sounds like you have made a good contact. I met a chap from VfL Wolfsburg who had a social responsibility report also. I shall keep an eye out for Filip and Djurgardens IF.

      Also seen your post on capitalism under siege – surely we are living this through the case of Blatter – the Picasso of the capitalist canvas (maybe thats a good title for new post new week!).

      Take care and hopefully our paths cross soon enough! Cheers!
