Football people's job is to take as much money off them as possible."

I suspect some of our recent managers had the Clough philosophy.

I also think it is changing. Premier league clubs are multi-million pound franchises and they cannot be run by self-interested amateurs. I see it becoming more like North American sports franchises where the money men and sporting staff are separate. I think Parish sees it this way as well.
I think all of your post is spot on, except for the bit I've highlighted. Parish has employed near enough the entirety of the 'managerial merry go round' and often buys the playing version of that too. He's become a footballing chairman of the nineties and that doesn't look like changing anytime soon.

That Fulham example is very bad, but such "tapping up" of players I am sure is very common.

Update: Hartlepool fans seem to believe that the agent representing Luca Murphy is one Gary Coxall. He was the Chairman of Hartlepool for two tumultuous years from 2015 to 2017 which culminated in them tumbling out of the football league under the ill fated management of Dave Jones. People might recall Jeff Stelling's anti-Jones rant on Sky as they slipped towards relegation. Coxall resigned shortly after relegation was confirmed, and his regime at the helm was subsequently investigated by the police after allegations of financial irregularities. No charges have been brought to date.

Coxall is an Essex man born and bred. It should be noted that he himself is not a registered football agent although he may of course be employed by a registered agency.

It seems that DirtyBird, the chicken shack restaurant chain invested in by Steve Parish and Will Salthouse, has reached the end of the line after slipping into administration. A sale of the company's relatively meagre assets is proposed by the administrators, and the various investors will have to walk away with nothing. The company was never able to get even close to turning a profit.

On the face of it this seems like an unusually poor investment decision by a savvy businessman like Steve Parish. Glenn Murray, Wayne Routledge and David Brooks - all USM clients - will also no doubt be very disappointed to have lost their money, having presumably been persuaded to invest by their agent.

Changing the subject entirely, I caught a showing of Goodfellas on TV the other week, no doubt that it is a fantastic movie.

Wasnt that the thing that Glenn Murrays wife was doing that got Murray into tax trouble? Such an off-putting name for a chicken restaurant. No wonder it failed really.
