    The Football Association have formally requested to have all the evidence from the Panorama investigation.

    The FA, together with the Premier League, have launched an inquiry into the BBC programme's report on corruption in English football.

    They are disappointed that full co-operation has not been given so far, and have submitted a formal request.

    "We have put in another formal request to supply all the information gathered during the course of their investigation," said an FA spokesman.

    "We are disappointed that we have not had that full co-operation yet."

    Panorama are believed to want the authorities to make specific requests for information, rather than pass over every piece of evidence to the investigations.

    The FA also confirmed they will contact Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston and leading agent Jon Holmes to ask them to provide further information on their claims.

    Oyston has said that he has been offered bribes on a number of occasions, while Holmes has claimed that three managers intimated to him they wanted bungs.

    "We will also be contacting Karl Oyston and Jon Holmes to ask for further information," said the spokesman.

    Meanwhile, Premiership managers have continued to voice their disappointment with the whole affair.

    Manchester City boss Stuart Pearce said: "I have been in the football industry for many years. I want it to be as clean as it can be and I would like to think that is the case - from where we are it is.

    "It would be disappointing to think anyone might be taking money out of the game they have not earned.

    "I was brought up to believe if you work hard you will get your rewards. It is as simple as that."

    Blackburn manager Mark Hughes added: "It is important we wait for Lord Stevens` inquiry. What he uncovers will hold more sway.

    "If anything, the programme was not of the quality everybody thought it was going to be.

    "People should keep their opinions to themselves until the inquiry is published."


    What a load of bullsh*t the FA are trying to sweep this under the carpet by suggesting they haven't seen any evidence, when the evidence was presented clearly on the panorama documentary.

    I think one thing, if anyone has cheated in English football he can go in retirament right now. English fans,the most honest fans in history of football, could never forgive things like that.

    There is not corruption in the league. A few managers take a bit of £££ for a transfer, its no big deal. We will completly forget about this story in a few days
