The sooner he is gone from our club the better. I used to give him the benefit of the doubt as I thought his heart was in the right place - but now see him as only interested in any money he can claw back from QPR. He is poisonous for us. The longer he hangs around, the more likely we are to fall through the leagues. FFP means he can blame someone else for the state our club is in. Same goes for the rest of our "owners" :roll:

It doesn't specifically name Tone, just that it was two 'executives.' More concerning, is wasn't Reuben also connected to Air Asia?

If Tony is the owner, it is hardly in his interest to be bribed to buy something.

Sounds like lesser individuals who have taken a bung to buy an inferior/more expensive product.

Looks like I picked a bad day to give up drinking and smoking.

Thank goodness for this news, I was staring to feel that our status as the primary circus / car crash in football was being eroded.

The force is regaining balance

Is it solely related to Caterham? as the timeline seems to tie in better with that than it does with QPR.

It is Caterham.

Doesn't mean it won't have an impact on the owners though and maybe why the purse strings are very tight (even considering FFP).

A number of articles have actually named QPR.

It was apparently linked to the Malaysian Airlines deal that we had a few years back...

"Lesser individuals" :lol:

Because CEOs are renowned for being good eggs who wouldn't happily see someone else take the fall for their own dishonesty or incompetence.

Worst case scenario, we've already been judged under FFP rules for funding irregularities.

Be a tough job to fund, research and prove a further case shirely?
