There's lot's of things that just don't add up in the #DerbyCounty story (not just the balance sheet)!

#DCFC

Fortunes squandered
Rules bent/broken
Offshore
Financial Engineering
Fronts
Fraudsters

It's not the first time the poor DCFC fanbase have been exposed to these c*nts
I was reminded of this incredible story from the mid 2000's that had passed me by at the time... but could be instructive of things to come.

#DCFC #QPR
- MD Nissan
- Fraud/Financial Engineering
- Offshore
- Loans/Mortgages on the stadium
- Dodgy solicitors & administrators

⚽️💸
The story about #MichaelHunt the biggest (uncovered) theft in the UK from #Nissan

Money Laundering through Swiss Trusts & banked in #Panama then loaned back to #QPR and #DCFC is the stuff of Spy movies!

@david_conn Nissan don't come out of this well - Anyway, moving on...💸⚽️

1. Polite notice:
Unfollow me, block me, but don’t troll me just because you can’t ‘win’ an argument with me.

I don’t use this forum to win arguments. I come here to debate and become more informed. And, sometimes, just to engage in idle banter with friends.
2. I have been on Twitter for many years but only become more active over the last couple of years because of the desperate circumstances we find ourselves in. Yes, I am vocal and passionate and sometimes I might use hyperboles and emotive language.
3. But, I try to back up everything I say with evidence from reliable and factual sources. I may not get it right every time, that’s the point of debating. So please don’t get offended if I produce some facts that ride roughshod over your point of view or personal prejudices.

Deadball Overview - 20/21 so far ⚽️ Image
I know #FCBayern love intensity and flow but it wouldn’t even hurt them if they drew more fouls.
#WestHam and #EintrachtFrankfurt are interesting cases because both teams are performing significantly better now compared to last season.

19/20 West Ham: 16th
20/21 West Ham: 5th after 28 games

19/20 Eintracht: 9th
20/21 Eintracht: 4th after 25 games ImageImage

I saw a story this week about @DerbyCounty_TT & their looming takeover - Sounds exciting!

Something really piqued my interest though

A couple of names in the report that I've seen before

The two 'Shadow Brokers' who get fleeting mentions over the last 15 years as the cast of foreign ownership in English football has become increasingly... 'cosmopolitan' are;

*Chris Samuelson* & *Andrew Obolensky*

Who are they?

What do they do??

Why should we care??? Image

Well, they've appeared in a few books I've read over the years, so I did some searches to try and understand more & connect the dots.

In a nutshell, they seem to be;

*FORMATION AGENTS*
*INNOVATIVE FINANCE PROFESIONALS*
*NETWORKERS/CONNECTORS*

🤔If someone has asked me whether I would have been writing a thread on West Ham defense mid-way through the last season, I would have laughed at them.

- Crony Capitalism
- Social Media

I've tried to get my head around it with the help of some good books & following smart journo's Image

Musing on my being called a f***ing lefty liberal c*** by 2 #WestHam fans on my way home on Saturday. A thread
Firstly, if it wasn't for lefty liberal c***s that you hate so much, you'd still be working 6 1/2 days a week with no paid holidays.
If your kid (And he wasn't a specimen to be proud of) got sick, you'd be having to decide whether to take him to the Dr or eat.
