The wisdom of football crowds …

I love this story today on the BBC website about back-seat or user-generated football management. It is an extraordinary example of how the wisdom of crowds concept that underpins social media technology is infiltrating everyday life.

I really hope it is successful … my only concern is that a large part of the enjoyment of football seems to be complaining about the manager’s selection decisions … if they ‘democratise’ refereeing too, there won’t be anything left to shout about!
