Spare 10 pence to save a football club?

The latest news on the £600,000-pound debt owed by League One club Sheffield Wednesday to the Her Majesty's Revenue (HMRC) is that there has been no change, and that everything is as it was last week when I originally reported it.

Wednesday have been served with a winding-up order in respect of the non-payment of £600,000 in tax, but, more than that, I do not know, and it would be unprofessional of me to speculate further on what might or might not happen to the Owls.

Of course, it could be that they will be put out of business by the order, which would be a shame. A club with a long and illustrious history such as that of Sheffield Wednesday would be a great loss to the game of football, as well as to the fans and everyone connected with the club.

I remember a famous game at Boothferry Park back in 1970 when, Hull City, 4-1 down with ten minutes to go, staged a magnificent comeback in the snow to draw 4-4. This on Boxing Day as well! What a wonderful belated Christmas present for the long-suffering Tigers fans!

But, then again, we have the horrible memory of the Hillsborough disaster to dwell on, and maybe it would be better for everyone if Wednesday were wound up, so that we could put the whole tragic debacle of the incompetence of the South Yorkshire Police behind us, knock the stadium down, build a shopping centre or some council houses on it, and move on with our lives.

But, of course, we won't know what is going to happen until the next hearing.

Or until the tight-fisted Tykes pay up.
