    They have broken all FA rules on finance and hide behind interpretation of wordings where other clubs have financially played to the spirit of the rules. So to quote Wolves as an equal is to akin to saying Gary Rowett is God.

    Go and join the ranks of cheats Val, get promoted and put yourselves out of reach of punishment in the big money league. Overseas investment is now getting to rule the football world. Competition is dead.
