Agreed. If the guys are turning up to do their days work (be that player, coaching staff, or even the people in the kitchens) they deserve to be paid for it.

That's probably the keeper, half is for playing, & the other half for working as a translator.

What idiot employs a manager that can't speak English? You couldn't make it up.

I bet Leyton Orient fans wish Barry Hearn didn't sell the club to the Italian Billionaire now.

I've heard a lot of teams abroad do it.

The only pleasing thing to come out of this is that Lee Hughes will be missing his high wages he was getting at FGR.  ;D

Makes JF seem like a saint doesn't it? ;D

The leagues are at fault for allowing some of these takeovers. Owners are supposed to be 'fit and proper persons' but in effect this means they are given the OK as long as they have no convictions. Of course the supporters are often taken in as well in the first place by promises of huge financial support. Anybody foreign must have loadsamoney, right?

In the long run it would be better and more community friendly to see clubs go to the wall and be reborn as fan-owned businesses, even if it meant dropping down the leagues.
