Isn't this journo a Pompey fan so maybe bitter about the 1993 playoffs.

Obviously someone close to the other parties is feeding him something a la 1990 there is an axe to grind. Maybe if it breaks in the press that might force Power's hand to compromise.

The throwing the 2015 play off final is laughable. Good way to hide it would be to have a team out of form since February, mentally and defensively shot by the Sheff Utd games, an injured captain and the manager sidelined in the build up.

What's more likely is the players were promised their big moves to the Championship so there was not as much riding on it as for Preston.

As for betting against your own team. The bookies are far to wise these days to suspicious betting and report footballers betting on games. Power as a racehorse owner and punter would be relatively high profile than your average coupon punter.

I wouldn’t use horse racing as something to reassure you, it’s one of the most rigged and immoral sports going. Some of the stuff I’ve heard about the grandson of our very own ex poison dwarf is enough for me to never bet on horse racing. I’ve even heard second hand from the girlfriend of said jockey about Power but taken it just as hearsay and is irrelevant to his ownership of us.

Posted end of April/start of May...before this came out and before the court case(s).

Either Wellens is completely in the dark, or as I keep thinking this is (expensive)handbags got a little out of hand.

That was the previous PO final.

The sight of Harry Agombar playing v Orient made some people question if everything was being done properly at STFC.

A lot of people have missed you Reg, openly or discreetly. I hope you're well and have just been lurking? I was out walking the lower edges of the Howardian Hills a few days back and for whatever reason, I thought of you for a short moment. Must've been shared enjoyment of hiking.

I was making the point that the bookies get wind of this type of thing and betting patterns. So a punter backing Swindon to loose or unusual score predictions and winning on a regular basis would get spotted.

If you walked into Ladbrokes and put £1000 cash on Swindon to lose 4-0 say at 20-1 would start ringing alarm bells. It would stand out with the size of the market. The bigger the bets the harder it is to play the system.

League One or Two football is quite unpredictable in terms of players making silly mistakes or fluke goals to fix an outcome. Like the Grimsby keeper chucking in goals in both games this year.

I know a lot of people shrugged their shoulders when that happened and said “it doesn’t matter” but, for me, it was just plain wrong.

An obscure part of the country.... good that there are some walking routes.
