:rover: who ever let these clowns near our football club want to be brought to justice,biggest crime to BLACKBURN ROVERS FOOTBALL CLUB since the 1960 cup final.i demand justice :blink::brfcsmilie:

When you have somebody with friends in high places guiding people who are gullible and know nothing about English football past the fit and proper person's test is easy. As an added incentive the guider could see the riches available in the plan to control the day to day running of a football club, until the safe door was apparently slammed on his grubby little fingers.

I know it's Scotland so the laws might not be identical, but you only have to look at Rangers to see that these fit and proper persons tests hardly have any depth to them....

All the fit and proper persons rest does is check if they have the money they say they have - or can access it less any personal input. It doesn't matter if you're a mass murderer. Gadaffi would have passed it. The Premier League care only about £££'s nothing else. Even Graham Jones MP says there will never be any requlation against bad owners.

If you spent £25m on a business (say a chicken factory) and said,

'Look guys you're the manager - you're in charge now. You don't have to make a profit just don't make a loss and we'll see you in a year.'

You pretty much have the situation we have at Rovers. It would even seem reasonable to get your £25 million back in time (Jones and Samba?.

Portsmouth seem to be much more of an asest stripping operation than Rovers.

Unfortunately Coco is the manager.

Even the FA chairman said it was badly named when he met with Pompey fans. It means do you have sufficient funds to complete your fixtures and makes sure you have never been a director at a company made bankrupt in the uk before. Hardly fit and proper.

They were fit and proper enough to send us down.

Being outspent by most other clubs was not enough to bring us down, selling our best players wasn't enough to send us down, being able mostly to buy fringe players (which we then turn good) was not enough to send us down, and all the problems we've had over the years, be it long periods of no-existent defense or rotten luck was not enough to send us down.

But then the chicken farmers came in and shot everything to hell.

Yeah good point Prof-what happened to that stuff in parliament with Graham Jones MP. It looked like we might be getting somewhere and that came hot on the heels of some thing by one of the Ian's in either the Independent or Times or simlar and it was all about fit and proper tests and how sh1t they were?It was on radio Lancs too cos i remember they made a big thing of it. I think the article was published on here a couple of months ago.Anybody know where it went to-might be worth a look back now we are up to our necks in it and scrambling around for help.

The heart-break of this forthcoming relegation is that it is self-inflicted.

Former Chester City FC Chairman Stephen Vaughan became the "first owner of a professional football club required to reduce his shareholding because, according to the English FA rules, he was no longer a "fit and proper person"."

Quite a story here..http://www.maltatoda...r-test-20120814

Now a `neighbour` of PhilipL in Malta?

It does make you realise that it is not completely far fetched to think that football club officials can have links to the criminal underworld.

Also, I fear that when Venkys actually do go, we will end up with someone like that to make money from any remaining scraps.

And people have a go at the likes of BRSIT... :rolleyes:

There were lots of rumours about Vaughan laundering money for an infamous Liverpool drug dealer when he took over at Barrow. I'm pretty sure that Eric Whalley was involved at Chester with him after Eric left Accrington. I saw his son play several times for Chester and he was extremely poor but if your dad owns the club..............
