How many clubs have gone bent with shady foreign investment?

I don't want some overseas investor rebranding and rebuilding our club into something commercial and slick that I don't recognise.

I'd rather continue to be a small tinpot fish in the football league. Otherwise I'd bugger off and support Spuds or Arsenal.

Even the successful ones, like Salford, are losing their identity as more and more money is poured in, yes they might get into the FL, and for us we might get up to the Championship with multi-millions poured in, but that comes at a cost.

If PW can find someone willing to bankroll the squad to enable us to compete in L1 I'd swallow that, but even then I'd be nervous of the investor pulling out, us being left high and dry with big wage bills and no ability to sustain them, followed by an insolvency order and a drop back to Conference South.

Maybe I'm just not that ambitious, but I started watching Stevenage because I liked the tinpot side of non-league and now the lower leagues. M happy here.
