Barcodes MD arrested along with other by HMRC. PRICESLESS!!!
Let's see if they throw the book at them like they did with certain others.
More importantly, does this mean we still have a chance of playoffs?

West Ham also, doesn't mean it will happen this season though and tbh we are clutching at straws to get in play offs that way only to lose anyhow.
Do hope Newcastle get the book thrown at them mind.

The repercussion from this could have some bearings on the final places at the end of the season. It wouldn't be sorted out by then but if they were to be found guilty off irregular payments,/tax evasion or whatever, then it's a fine & a deduction of points. If it were us we'd be hung out to dry as per usual, but what would happen to the Geordies? I'm sure they'd get the above mentioned, but it would only mean them starting with a points deficit but still in the premiership. Leeds should sue the FA, as the ponts should be deducted for this season which would put us back into the play offs. Which club tried a similar case a few years back? Was it Sheffield United trying to claim against West Ham?!!

Nothing will happen to either of them. Both media darlings not far behind scum and the bin-dippers.

Didn't Swindon get their promotion taken off them during Hoddle/Ardiles time? And then they won promotion the year after? Think that was to do with tax evasion.

Yeah it was Sheff U and WHU. Didn't Blades get some compo in the courts. Maybe Cellino will want a piece of that. It might help him offset the cost of the ST refund - or maybe that can be the basis if his claim!!
