Web 2.0 does football

So, everyone's heard of Facebook, MySpace and so on, bringing communities together. But what about a community managing the decisions behind a football team? The buying of players, sacking managers and so on? The BBC Sport Site shows how Blue Square Premier League side Ebbsfleet United has been taken over for £700,000 by community site MyFootballClub

The deal is expected to be completed in a few weeks after a due diligence process and the website will purchase a 51% controlling stake, while also having the option to buy the club outright in the future. The takeover is a landmark for English football, given the website's stated intention of involving the members so radically in the running of the club, particularly with team selection.
   
After the takeover goes through the current board will stay in place, as will manager Liam Daish, although his title will change to head coach.
