Readings current financial plight started with their previous owner (the real estate in Green Park is worth a lot of money). That fella now of course runs OUFC.

Readings problems will come to a head soon. Not even close to Premier League football and a largely disinterested fanbase.

He still owns the land round it. The ground will one day in the near future revert to it's previous use.

Someone really needs to tell Gordon Taylor that the single best thing he can do to represent his members at the moment is to shut the fuck up.

I won't ever forget that back in the early 80s he didn't want any players from other countries (notably the EU) coming over to the league and actually refused them work permits saying they would take British players jobs. Rather than looking at the bigger picture.

The man truly is and always has been a footballing dinosaur.

Dale Vince is unbelievable, demanding a wage cap now after financially doping his companies marketing department into the football league. Not the richest guy in the playground anymore so itís all unfair, an absolute hypocrite and not just when it comes to football.

What a bellend.

No longer a big fish in a small pond and having to compete against other clubs that naturally have more resources - so he wants the rules changed.

Man Utd defer their VAT Bill and in dispute with HMRC.


Small print in Manchester United third quarter results reveal it had cash to spend £3.6m to buy back shares to prop up the share price & can pay £11m dividend to owners (78% to Glazers) on 3 June but chose to defer its £10m VAT bill last quarter due to UK govt for a year #MUFC https://t.co/vMakM27s5o

As well as delaying paying their VAT bill Manchester United are being investigated over other tax issues too #MUFC https://t.co/bMdSlWfTHv

Chelsea. Paying lip service to BLM with nice statements on social media, pics of players taking a knee etc, but then fighting the civil claims against them from their own former black youth players who their coach racially abused for years and who "were treated like a race of fucking dogs". Despite apologising for what they admitted was "an environment where racially abusive behaviour became normalised", seems Chelsea are happy to apologise because that makes them look good but still fighting the civil claims in court which might cost them a few quid. Nice.

Was debating this thread or the 'things that make you smile' thread, but Hull City having a bit of a PR mare this morning.

https://twitter.com/HullCity/status/1274984925964505090

Getting shirty with The Athletic for what seems like a very well sourced story, and 'redacting' the emails by highlighting it in black, which means you can paste it into word and remove all the redactions.

Ex-Town loanee Kev Stewart is on 17k a week, in case you wanted to know... Decent change that.

Man City overturning the ban is fucking ridiculous.

You broke the rules and there is no punishment, a tiny fine in terms of Man City.

Absolute fucking joke.

RIP FFP.
