The FLP’s Alternative Awards 2016-17: Villain of the Year

By Chris Dunlavy

Plenty of contenders here. Venky’s completed their wanton destruction of Blackburn Rovers by sending the 1995 Premier League champions into League One.

Sisu piled more misery on Coventry supporters, failing to invest in players or hire a manager for two months.

Brazilian businessman Diego Lemos ‘bought’ Morecambe only to vanish, leaving behind unpaid wages and empty promises.

But the winner – and beating that lot takes some doing – is the Brisbane Road binman. From awful managerial appointments to allegations of interfering in team selection and, most unforgivably, paying staff so late some were forced to move house, the Orient owner has been a stain on football. The sooner he is gone, the better.
