    The £4.2m is likely the tip of the iceberg. Iím not sure how they deal with admin in England.

    I don't think they do deal with it in England. Didn't Portsmouth go bust a few times around their FA Cup win?

    Got quite a few other issues over the next few weeks as well
    12 point penalty deduction if they were to go into admin.
    Seems a real mess

    When you scratch the surface of teams like this in trouble, you normally find some absolutely eye-watering wastes of money in there.

    I wonder how much they have paid agents over the past few years?

    I wonder how much they paid in total for Charles N'Zogbia, and how much football they got out of him?


    Sunderland have a few - £10m for a player whose transfer didn't go through and became a free agent, £70k per week for Jack Rodwell to make 2 league appearances in the Championship last season.

    Badly-run clubs who are run by idiots are sitting ducks for shysters, and there are a lot in England.

    Aston Villa are losing £6m per month. The have less than a week to find £4.7m for the tax man and then two weeks to find another £8m.
    Anyone taking over will need to find £70m just to keep the lights on for another year.
    They will be lucky to start next season.

    Saw an article pointing out their club motto is 'Prepared'.

    As with Rangers 2012 and the motto 'Aye Ready', you'd think these clubs would see the admin-inducing tax hits coming.

    Logan, McGregor, Hanlon (Gunnarsson 83), Fontaine (Henderson 70), Gray, Fyvie, McGeouch, McGinn, Stevenson, Stokes, Cummings (Keatings 65)

    Strangely enough I only know one Villa fan, born and raised in the Midlands - yet his second team are rangers and his posting of horrible, sectarian guff on social media would make you think he came from Larkhall!
    Hope they go bust.

    He could have gone to Russia this summer and sold a knighthood and passport to some oligarch in return for investment, but that particular wheeze is off the table at the moment.

    Football will do that to you.

    Conversely, Iíve always disliked West Ham, but know a few fans who are good people, so I will feign some concern when they have a **** season.
