Clem Morfuni, thinking this must be a trap - "all cheeses, how's that?"

Rob Angus, more familiar with the STFC fanbase - "Spanish cheese"

Even though I guess there are probably much less varieties than France, "Spanish cheese" is quite vague. That said I can only really think of manchego off the top of my head, and I am not 100% sure that really is Spanish!

I'm really not convinced by 'Spanish cheese'. Sounds like innuendo.

I hope the trust is looking into this.

It's all a bit vague and conspicuous...

Apart from pocketing last yearís ST money was there any hint that Power May have done the same with the EFL loan money?

Not trying to defend Power, because his actions clearly show heís a crook, but surely the ST money would have paid the wages for last season

I donít think anyone needs to hint, itís pretty obvious. Weíve had £1m off the EFL, season ticket money for last season, furlough payments during last summer plus whatever government business grants the club was able to take.

All that money coming in, but he hasnít paid creditors, HMRC, the council, players wages last month.

No need to hint, the money is in one bank account .

What a travesty of questioning that is, why didn't they press the matter?!

'All cheeses'?! What the hell kind of answer is that!? Might as well say 'no cheeses'. Bleeding Kangaroo botherer.

Rob should have been more specific, bit of a let down.

#cheesegate

Far as Power pocketing money goes, I think it's pretty obvious he was in the club as long as required to take as much out and pay as little as possible, particularly since the court case started as he must have had an inkling he would be on the losing side of that.

If there's cash coming in but none going back out to pay rent/salary, it doesn't really take a genius to figure where it could have gone.

If there's been a change in ownership etc. does that mean our pukka pie catering contract is finally over and I can get a decent cup of tea that doesn't taste like someone's filled it from the sink at the back of the kitchen that's got all the dirty dishes in it?

Well, thatís the point. If he hasnít paid anyone for a year it doesnít take a rocket scientist to figure out where itís gone.

Hopefully, something heís done is downright illegal. Wasnít the EFL money ringfenced in any way to prevent crooked owners just pocketing it?

I thought it was only June where he didnít play the players & staff.

Isnít it the external suppliers that the crook didnít pay.

To be fair Iím more concerned about the other dodgy dealings rather than the ST money.

Power warned in February that he wouldn't have enough money to pay wages etc after the end of March

Seems anything not nailed down and worth a few quid ended up in the crookís pocket. Wages were paid until he decided heíd sold the club and wasnít his responsibility any more - that alone must have been worth thousands.

The fact he hadnít paid HMRC and rent for a year or so proves this shitstorm was well planned in advance.

I think I'll also play devils advocate and say deferring both those to pay staff may not be a stupid thing to do. ...

but

that's only true if the st money, EFL grants, sell ons and DJ money, Curran money, etc was less than that paid out.

that's guesswork, but I bet he got his transfer consultancy fees

If everything that we think he has done actually turns out to be true I think this maybe LPs last venture as a company director for a while
