Things seem to be going from bad to worse at the moment. If you hadn't heard and you probably have, the CEO has been suspended. Now, speculation was that there was a winding up order about to be presented. But that's just speculation right?

It must be, because the BBC are saying that that has nothing to do with why the CEO was suspended.

So what could it be? I mean, is it just a coincidence?

I don't think it is a coincidence. I've long written my thoughts on the owner. I think he's a charlatan, pitching his company services to the players, calling himself a Doctor, flying business, wearing off the peg suits and generally acting a fool on social media.

And you know what, when the owner has basically put nothing in himself and used the money that was coming to the Club and then some, it should be clear for everyone that things are not good and if all of what we're reading now turns out to be true, I think most will be able to understand why I've thought him a charlatan from pretty much the week it came out he was buying the Club.

And this is the reality of where we find ourselves. This is what years of constant change have brought. It's years of not having football people at the Club. It's also an opportunity. And it's an opportunity for someone else to come and get the Club at a very good price.

But, we have to all accept that with the reduced price, remember we're basically confirmed, even if we don't like it or want to believe it, as a Championship Club, the owner probably isn't going to get the money he paid and it also means there is a possibility we just get more chancers. Hopefully though with a little football nous and a little determination.

But don't get me wrong, they'll say all the right things at all the right times and for sure, there will be a large group that buy into that. But they wont be wrong.

The next few days are going to be very interesting. And you never know, a chancer always looks for options. It could very well be our owner pulls another one out of his hat. I mean, in the grand scheme of things, it's not that much money.
