Greg Dyke: Appointment as FA chairman ratified

Dyke will replace David Bernstein on July 13, who is leaving the post after two-and-a-half years.

He was a director of Manchester United in the late 1990s, and since 2006 he has been non-executive chairman of Brentford football club

Dyke, who will relinquish his role with the Bees at the end of the season, said: "I'm flattered that the FA council has unanimously supported my appointment as chairman of the FA and I am looking forward to taking up the role in July.

"I will be outlining my priorities for the future of the FA in due course."

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
