    This has been doing the rounds on twitter/Facebook.

    1) That's Jack Ma.

    2) He's one of the richest people in China.

    3) He's not buying Hull City.

    4) Hueng Chang Lin doesn't exist. He might as well be the leader of the special boat squadron.

    If only we didn't live in 2019 where people are aware of successful, foreign businessmen and can't just use any Chinese person to put fake news out...

    Reading today how Chansiri has bought Hullsborough for £60 m, and Mel Morris has bought Pride Park for £80m, both in bids to wriggle out of FFP rules.

    Both of these grounds are massively overpriced and are essentially deals where the football club sells its ground to the owner of the football club.

    Football is ****ed with bent owners bending the rules under the averted eyes of the FA/EFL.

    About the time the FA gave away the first division and the Premier League was formed.

    £60 million for a club with its own 33,500 capacity stadium. Meanwhile our owners expect to get something similar for a club which plays in a rented stadium with a capacity of 25,500...

    Derby’s stadium has a capacity of 35,597 so an even larger difference in capacity.

    The club no longer owns its stadium and the owner can't sell it to a new owner at a workable price, without it being an open admission that it was a fiddle, something they're already being investigated for.

    If he can get Derby County, including the stadium, for £60million, which is the more attractive proposition, them or us?
