Response to Re: wages
Good article it the Sunday times Sport section by Rod Liddle headed Rich men with dubious designs on our football clubs;which relates to some of the above posts.Interestingly he says"why would anyone buy a middle ranking football club unless it is out of a wish to gratify the ego,or maybe its a club you supported as a kid and to which you therefore feel a sentimental allegiance,or,finally,as a useful conduit to launder the proceeds of a multi-million-pound scag deals and the like?.The one thing you wouldnt do,if you were a rich business man,is to buy a football club to make money".In relation to our own club we cannot point the figure of money laundering as far as I am aware,but the rest of Liddles words seems to fit the profile of our owner and some of the things that could have motivated him over the years.
