The FA campaign to win Manchester United chief executive David Gill a place on the UEFA executive committee includes his appointment as a vice-chairman of the FA.
Gill is to replace Sir Dave Richards as the FAís representative from the professional game in order to strengthen his already influential standing in English football ahead of the UEFA election at the London Congress next May.

UEFA and FA roles: David Gill
The rubber stamping of Gillís position will go before the next FA Council meeting after Richards, who is slowly relinquishing his myriad of football positions, surprisingly volunteered to stand down to help Gillís cause.
Despite Gillís status with club and country, the FA are aware they will need to lobby hard around Europe to gain the necessary votes. And most important will be getting the FAís current UEFA ExCo member Geoff Thompson on side. Former FA chairman Thompson has a stronger support base in Eastern Europe than at home.

Does this mean we'll see a reduction in the Sheffield Wednesday bias at UEFA now?
