Another Writ on the Cards?
There has been a new twist in the Freddiegate scandal. As Crystal Palace responded to the their defeat at Ashton Gate like a hellfire preacher on heat — one can imagine the howling in the dressing room at Portman Road as Neil Warnock out-Keane-ed Keano — it emerges that the South London side may still owe their hosts from Saturday a fair chunk of money for the transfer of Nick Carle last season. Robins’ chairman Steve Lansdown claims that the blond bombshell Simon Jordan still owes him £250,000. Two injustices don’t make for equilibrium but as a neutral, I eagerly await the possible legal fall-out — who can forget that writ served by Jordan to Iain Dowie back in 2007?
