Its also another example, to add to the countless others, where having a 'sugar daddy' and trying to buy success ultimately ends in a club so far from its roots and normality that it essentially goes bust or ends up in the poop.
Only the lack luster rules of the FA/EFL stand in the way of a FL that should by all accounts look very different than it does today. Its ridiculous that clubs can be run so badly on unsustainable loans and debt, go bust, yet be allowed to just lose some points and carry on regardless, often debt free again. Its nothing short of cheating and makes football a mockery.
How many clubs have gone into administration (going bust in normal business terms) in the last 20 years? Many should still be fighting there way back up the football pryimid now but instead retain their FL place which alongside a fan base is a huge asset.
I'm sure many of those club's were 'lucky to have XYZ' right up until the point they weren't and were left wondering if there club would now survive and why they didn't do more to protect it.
We are lucky to have JR, as it stands, but people should remember all these other clubs that over spent, had balance sheets that were a complete disaster and where it very nearly ended in tears or did end very badly. Yet for some reason despite all the examples, evidence and facts people still somehow retain blind faith that this won't be us one day.
Let's hope we at least get our day in the sun before we become another grim statistic.
