Ok, so who's had the thought hoping that it might be us?

Nah not us, we've got match day guests who are experts and could spot it happening form Karachi.

Take the medicine, clean sweep of miscreants, start again afresh preferably still in the EFL?

I absolutely am.  

I'm sure some of the usual suspects will think I'm a cunt for that because it might ultimately mean being demoted or expelled from the league, but it would be better to take our licks and have the clear out we need and then start the rebuild rather than carry on sleepwalking slowly in that direction anyway.

I always thought clubs were misreporting attendances lower than they actually were - not higher. Smaller crowds = less in income = less taxable income.

Obviously this was rife in the days of paying cash at the turnstiles as we well know.

I forgot one other red flag, actually having someone connected to the club with a Money Laundering conviction.

But we have no one at the club connected with Money Laundering conviction{s}...Clem told us himself. The only link is that he is a very friendly, kind type chap doing some visa stuff, will take a kicking every now and again...and is a matchday guest  Soapy Tit Wank

Just that?

Not the Adam Hart MTK Global thing as well?

I think he said words to the effect of "time served".

I sincerely hope he and Hart are changed men, they could be. But the EFL have rules for a reason, and if Austin is really just a matchday guest my flabber will be well and truly gasted. That doesn't mean wrongdoing of course, in the illeagal sense anyway.

Well, apart from that, what have the Money Launderers ever done for us? 

If you were working in the financial crimes section of the police, you'd be sniffing about and if you were a a financial consultant/risk analyst you'd be giving the club a significant amount of advice on it's processes.

How does Austin find himself on the invite list of so many L2 clubs Directors Lounges, especially when we play them?

For away games I'd imagine that the visiting club would be allocated a number of complementary tickets for boardroom lounges or equivalents based on capacity.

For home games given the recent focus by the club on ticket category entry abuse, I would hope that there are similar efforts to crackdown on excessive freeloading in the executive lounges.

I'd imagine (again) that the potential increase in matchday income would far outweigh any perceived abuse at the lowly turnstile level.

Maybe this is one of the disadvantageous commercial arrangements that the club is referring to?

Reading deducted yet another 2 points with another 2 suspended after Yongge failed, yet again to deposit wages + 25% into a specified account.

So after months of fans protesting against his ownership heís taken no notice and done nothing to alleviate the situation.

Hardly surprised our fans canít be arsed protesting.

The fact that some of their fans still have a go at protesters makes me wonder how bad it would have to get here before the happy clappers stop happy clapping.
