He’s chosen not to put another penny in and we’ll pay the price for that. If he thought he could run a Championship club and make a profit he’s incredibly naive.
Having run up the bills under his tenure I’d expect him to pay them, as I would any business owner - and as he promised the EFL. If you think he’s undeserving of vitriol given the state he’s left the club in you’re on another planet.
How can he pay HMRC if, 1. The club doesn't have enough money, and 2. He doesn't have enough personal money ? The fact is that the money generated by our Club and Hotel does not cover the money needed to operate it all. I imagine that is the reason the Ed Davies had to keep pumping money in before. No one likes this situation, but the reality is that the Club could have been liquidated at the time Ed threw the towel in. We got a few more years and may still survive. I'm no fan of Ken but it seems clear to me that at the start he was royally stitched up by Deano with this BluMarble loan (not forgetting that one million of it didn't end up in the club) and he has been on the back foot since then. It's not helped either with the Embargo we suffered and the fact that we have a squad and manager that are fucking useless.
