HMRC’s Pound Of Flesh: Aftershocks In The Boardroom, That Sort Of Thing

Good morning.

Did you know that questionnaires have also been sent to 24 clubs asking for information regarding free holidays, luxury homes and other gifts? 

The investigation is being carried out by HMRC’s High Net Worth Unit, which was specially created to target individuals worth in excess of £20million.

If the answers to the questionnaires are not satisfactory, then a full-scale investigation could soon follow.

Presumably common examples of  benefits/expenses for professional footballers include company cars, platinum toilet roll holders, health insurance, diamond encrusted  mobile phones, travel, various entertainment expenses including £27,000 bar bills, Luis Vuitton toenail clippers, that sort of thing.

This only adds weight to the notion that HMRC are making a concerted effort to make someone, anyone from the world of football a high profile coup.

Speaking of high profile coups, Tony Fernandes’ decision to bin Neil Warnock may be causing aftershocks in the boardroom at The Lane. As run on here at least twice in recent months, Mark Hughes is/was being held in a holding pattern to step in should Arry become ‘unavailable’ *cough, cough* to carry out his duties.

Hughes’ face this morning is plastered everywhere in relation to the brand new vacancy. Which poses a …poser now as what we ought to do should he accept. 

Whoever takes over at QPR wants there head looking at anyway. Pitiful gate receipts and a Chairman with delusions of grandeur. Nice combo.

    its all a bit dodgy anyhow, how can a player play for another team when his season ends, then return when it starts again? surely they need the break?
    where will it end? No game on a weekend, play for someone else for one game, then return to your club for the next mach!

    All three are noble expressions of the automotive art and peoples dream of what it takes to make a real car better . The DUPONT is awesome and the PORSCHE is really fast I bet .I have to give in to the bent dream that became iron and rubber and was called ” TUCKER “
