Johnny Bloody Foreigner bringing his bloody foreign diving and cheating habits to the Beautiful Game and denying dear old UKaynians the chance to shine.

There may be a trace of bollocks in the above. Only a trace mind.

Too much money concentrated in the top quarter of the legue structure.

Too little money filtering down.

New grounds/ stadiums (stadia?) where the action is too far from the crowd. Atmosphere suffers as a result.

All seater staidums (stadia?).

Spineless powers that be that fail to deal with the overpaid 'stars' of the game when they behave like complete and utter cunts on and off the pitch.

Racism/ Sexism/ Homophobia- basic intolerance amongst supporters and players.

Talking the talk and then pulling up a chair and supping a beer when it is time to walk the walk (not putting the effort in when in an International shirt as opposed to a club shirt).

I could probably goo on but, I need a cup of tea and a lie down.

Meh, getartofit.

Incredible that they lost 26m last season, whilst in the PL and with selling a few players for big money.

How the hell are they going to repay a 136m loan over 10 years. With the interest that will be over 14m a year.

Not enough players with moustaches, beards, mullets, comb overs or wet perms.

And all these Championship clubs thinking it's the Holy Grail. Just negligence of horrific proportions that this can be allowed to happen.

Indeed, not helped with having to pay-off Coyle and pay more money to hire whatshisname.

Would love to see what the business plan is for actually paying this money back.

The business plan is to go bust and pay back non-football creditors a tiny percentage of what they actually owe.

Genius really.

You do have to think that, especially with some of the 'smaller' clubs* - the owners seem to pocket a huge slice of their new-found riches and say bollocks to it when the shit hits the fan.

*See Pompey

Not wishing to sound too jingoistic, but there's just too many foreign owners for my liking.

Say what you like about Oxford but Agent Kassam did them royally up the arse and is continuing to do so.

Unfortunately Firoz Kassam saved that club, they'd be like Darlo, Scarborough, or Chester, without him.

It's just that most of their fans are too thick to realise it...in the same way, they all want Gene Wilder out, whereas the wider football community sees he's doing a decent job, so nominate him for Manager of the Month.

Agent Kassam will hold the club back forever when they have to fork out such a huge rent per annum.

He flogged the Manor for multi millions and spent 43p building the Kassam and pocketed the difference.

He is one big albatross round their necks - putting off any sane investor

The rent isn't that much more than what we pay for the CG...when you consider, Oxford were completed screwed and only by his endeavours was the club saved, he's surely entitled to something.

Kassam provides 3 stands, a decent car park and  a well creosoted fence. By contrast SBC, were gifted the CG, doing fuck all themselves and provide fuck all for their exhorbitant rent.

Come on Reg, it's not the rent that screws Oxford over, it's the fact they don't get to keep any of the non ticket match day revenue on top of that.

STFC rent is based on turnover, so the more we earn, the more we pay and vice versa.  Hence it always been a bit over played by the SSW regime because our Revenue had declined so they were due to pay less.  It may even have been below 100k a year at one point.

Not sure that's it as Bolton have claimed pretty much all the debt is to the owner, no suggestion they're not paying any of their other bills. Just seems stupid that it isn't written off as that appears to be the only long term outcome.
