I thought that Standing was involved with Barry, is that the connection?

Power well on the ropes now and cornered.
The safe is well and truly empty and wonít have any more gullible lenders to fall back on.
Canít see this playing out until December and he will show his true colours.

I reckon heíll get his lawyers to press the FA into putting the case on hold pending the outcome of the court case claiming that if the FA pass judgement they will be prejudicing a court hearing. Weíll just have another thing putting us in limbo hanging over the club!

Iím still failing to understand what rules have been broken. Some bloke has been putting money into the club. Why is that a no no?

can't see the FA being happy to do that. especially if punishment potentially affects the structure of the leagues

Conflict of interest.

A ďfriendĒ of mine escaped a custodial sentence on a similar matter.
Was still found guilty mind you. lawyers can do all sorts of deals outside the court room.
I see this going the same way. Eye opening when you get into the facts.

Has the club benefited at all from this? No. We were in L1 when Power took over and havenít progressed since. This isnít like paying players outside of their contracts which did, indeed, give the club an unfair advantage.

How has this conflict of interest manifested itself on the playing side of the club?

Christ, we all know that some clubs are money laundering or that their owners are just a front for shadowy money backers.

The rule is there to prevent agents from operating a club in their own financial interest. Whether it's a good rule or not is immaterial, it's part of the FA regulations and if you break them you risk being charged, same with any rules. And I'm sure you're right that there are probably plenty of other clubs that have done this and got away with it. But they weren't stupid enough to disclose the details of it in a publicly reported court case.
