Recommended Posts

You couldn't make it up, for all the youngster here are his qualifications;

Ridsdale's sports consultancy firm WH Sports Group Limited, which provided advice to football clubs from 2003, failed in 2009 with debts of more than £475,000. Ridsale was found to have diverted payments by football clubs totalling £347,000, due to the company, into his personal bank account. In October 2012, he was disqualified as a company director until April 2020 after an inquiry by the Insolvency Service. His wife Sophie Ridsdale was likewise banned from acting as a director of any company until 2016.[22]

It’s comical really isn’t it,  the EFL don’t even realise they are an absolute shambles.

That's only half the story, take a look at Wiki, he's been less than successful at Leeds, Barnsley, Cardiff and Plymouth, leaving all clubs under a cloud.

One thing he did correctly was to take Leeds to the promised land of the old third division, where they could truly be the biggest club in the league.

As father Ted would say, "That money was only resting in my account"
