Any "missing" money Ron found when he took over was as I recall laid at booted door not Venables. In fact I am fairly certain TV was still owed money he was never paid a promised bonus for winning promotion in 79'. Ron found the cupboard was bare in terms of cash when he took over abroad had to sell players to try and keep the debtors at bay. The money from the Sainsbury's deal never seemed to have made it into the club's finances, that is where our problems started and we still suffer from this day.
I don't think Ive ever seen anyone suggest Venable was the poor innocent in the whole sorry sage before.
