What a sad sad day when 2 club legends play their part in doing the club over.

Hero to zero literally overnight.

being a hero is worth very little to some in comparison to being a millionaire.

ask yourself this, which would you rather be?

Because the posters crying crocodile tears over morality are turning a blind eye?

 

No, you asked if that’s what we were talking about so I answered.

 

If you need it to be clearer...

 

No, that’s not what we were talking about.

It’s classic troll behaviour from Geoff. Same for months. Always trying to change the subject to just a couple of very narrow points. Won’t ever answer any questions. Very Tonto-esque actually.

While its correct to compare the two - there is a huge difference in the scale of how much is involved.

 

But yes - non-existent taxi companies (however soon they may arrive) and drinks companies chucking £1m at us to circumvent FFP rules is another example of loopholes being used to exploit the system

 

It's not just the scale of it that differs, though.

 

Morally, a chairman using a loophole to pump a bit more of his cash into the club he owns in order to attempt to compete on an even footing with clubs whose bank balances have been artificially inflated by obscene parachute payments is hardly comparable to a club screwing another out of a development fee for a young player who came through their academy.

Pretty much.

 

Once he's backed into a corner on one subject he just deflects onto another. 

 

So we as fans aren't allowed to be frustrated as to what's happened because of D-Taxis? Complete nonsense.

The only question that raises for me is, if the powers that be in football are prepared to just sit back and ignore such a dubious way of injecting funds into a club (which they clearly are) then why not just let the club owner put in an equivalent sum of money without having to go to the trouble of setting up non trading companies to do it? :wacko:
