Pisses me off, we must have far more to offer than Barnsley. We have a great stadium with a Hotel and brand new academy, what do Barnsley have?

Maybe an owner who was a supporter and had the football team rather than his bank balance at heart?

Maybe this is the thinking behind it perhaps?

Simon Chadwick, a professor of sport enterprise at Salford University, said it was both an "odd" choice and a "strange location" to buy a club when taking into consideration a Chinese government clampdown on "irrational investments", and the number of higher profile teams in the area.
"In the summer there was a statement that from now on all football club purchases should somehow be linked to China's 'one belt, one road' initiative," Chadwick told BBC Sport.
"It is a top-level government strategy that is intended to open up trade routes between China and the rest of the world. When we talk about 'one belt, one road', we are talking trade routes, oil and gas and about possibly real estate opportunities.
"This suggests that this relates to real estate or to Lee's portfolio of tourism businesses. So far he has used football as a way of promoting and developing his tourism empire."

Chadwick added: "This is not a random purchase; it is not a sugar-daddy purchase; it is not a vanity purchase. There will be very clear economic and strategic reasons for buying the club.
"There is not just interest in football, but interests in broader industrial, economic and commercial opportunities beyond that.
"Getting to the Premier League will be important but in my experience of the Chinese and their investors, football is a means to an end, not an end in itself."
The HS2 rail line through South Yorkshire, a multi-million pound retail scheme in the town and a drive to boost tourism in the area in the coming years all "fit the bill" according to Chadwick.

A Barnsley Chop is like what lamb chops actually look like before they are cut up to be sold as chops - see picture below - it's like two (what we think as 'normal' chops) chops glued together at the base, if you see what I mean.

Here's a BBC (Hairy Bikers) recipe that you might like to try -
