Martin Glenn quotes

Sep 24 2017

The reputation of The FA isn't where we would like it to be … [But] we will grow in influence across the game – not by things we say, but by things we do.feedback

Sep 23 2017

If someone has had something said to them, the thing you would expect them to do is raise a complaint. The specifics of that complaint could then be dealt with. If you worked your whole life on hearsay, you'd never be able to run a classroom let alone the Football Association.feedback

Sep 21 2017

I wasn't certain that two white people [Ashworth and Brace] – two middle-aged‑ish white people – doing the inquiry may have seen some of the shades of the issue that Eni was trying to get at. So, quite deliberately, I said: 'I want an independent look at this and, to be blunt about it, I want it to be an employment expert, I want it to be female and I'd like it to be of a different ethnicity to us,' in case we were missing things and in case the way we had done the inquiry may not have made people of a different ethnicity comfortable to speak up.feedback

It could very well be the case that Mark said some crass things. I don't know, you won't know and I suspect no one will know. If it's true that he has made inappropriate comments to Eni Aluko and Drew Spence I will apologise. He doesn't need to – but I will apologise on behalf of the FA because we don't operate the ship like that.feedback

Sep 21 2017

But is there evidence of systematic racial bias, or bullying, in that national team? Absolutely not. Two inquiries have shown that. We'll finish the work after she [Newton] has spoken to Drew. But it's not one [a culture] of systematic bias. I have to apply the principles of natural justice to this.feedback

Sep 21 2017

I disagree with you on just about every count. I've worked in big organisations where inquiries into this kind of thing have gone on. I'm very comfortable. We did the internal inquiry with the head of HR and Dan Ashworth, both of whom have got a value set I totally respect. In terms of the question 'is there any evidence of systematic wrongdoing?' clearly not.feedback

Sep 21 2017

Of course people like Eni have rights that need to be respected. So, too, does the FA. So, too, does the management. So, too, do the support staff.feedback

Sep 20 2017

No law was broken but we felt that, during his time at Bristol, Mark had overstepped the professional boundaries between player and coach.feedback

Sep 20 2017

Mark joined the FA at the end of 2013. A couple of months into his employment, the FA received anonymous allegations about his conduct at Bristol Academy. The FA safeguarding system clicked into gear and those safeguarding officers spent quite a bit of time, almost a year, investigating a range of issues that had been raised. They presented that to a safeguarding review panel in early 2015 and in March 2015 the panel reached a decision that, if he had some training and mentoring, he wasn't a safeguarding risk.feedback

Sep 20 2017

The incidents being investigated were – I'm not going to give any more detail than this – inappropriate behaviour and a crossing of the boundary between coach and players. There is no evidence that has come to our eyes about anything illegal and we don't want idiots going round his house with torches. But he had clearly stepped over the line and admitted as much.feedback

Sep 20 2017

The reason we have parted company with him was that, while the safeguarding team did their job on their specific narrow front, nobody else within the FA was alerted that what he had done was not something you would be comfortable with for an FA employee. In his [Sampson's] eyes, he felt he had been cleared of the issue. And he had been from a safeguarding perspective. Our problem was the grown-ups in the organisation hadn't seen the report and the full detail to make the point about employability.feedback

Jun 22 2017

We would like to thank Ladbrokes for both being a valued partner over the last year and for their professionalism and understanding about our change of policy around gambling.feedback

Mar 09 2017

In a demanding calendar and with increased pressures on fans it is important we consider new innovations. While fully respecting tradition and history, this new development will help the Cup retain its status as a much-loved and world-renowned competition.feedback

Mar 04 2017

With the cup now adopting a straight knockout format from the quarter-finals onwards, the introduction of a fourth substitute in extra time will bring extra intrigue and interest.feedback

Mar 04 2017

Also, from a technical point of view, it will be interesting to see how managers use the chance to make an additional substitution in such high-profile games and the impact it has on the final result.feedback

Mar 03 2017

Yes, subject to us being fully prepared and ready. I'm very happy that there's testing going on across the world that we can learn from so that when we apply it in English competitions, we know that it's going to work. I'm very happy for other people to do the testing and get the wrinkles out of the way.feedback

Dec 02 2016

There has to be a situation, where if there are restrictive contracts through employment law which prevent people from speaking out about a crime – and we are talking about crimes here – then it must be dealt with.feedback

Dec 01 2016

If the FA have made errors, we will own up to them as must the rest of football if avoidable errors have been made. The only way that this gets dealt with is through openness and honesty and everyone exposing what has happened.feedback
