    He will be sentenced on Monday for his horrific crimes, makes me wonder though if this sort of thing is still rife in youth Football.

    What's incredible is the influence he had on the players but also the parents who fawned over him. He's a vile individual and I'd think things have changed but in junior football etc, there may be sporadic cases perhaps. Lot of clubs may be forking out compensation to the victims and Crewe and Dario Gradi haven't come out of this situation well either

    Dispatches' Wall of Silence worth a watch on catch-up, touches on many of the information already known but very powerful victim statements of men who are now in their adulthood, speaking out childhood abuse by Bennell. It touches on the death of Gary Speed in 2011 and a witness offering his confidence that he believes Speed was abused though his family denies it. Plausible even if he was or he was witness to the abuse that he wouldn't have wanted to speak up about it at any time, that may have lead to his tragic death. FA/Crewe/Man City, and potentially, other clubs, have lots to answer for in terms of what they knew and why they didn't do anything.
