The oldest professional football club believe it or not faces the possibility of court proceedings for non-payment of taxes.
Months after a Qadbak Investments, a Middle East company, whose owners remain largely unidentified bought over Notts County, they are faced with a huge tax bill which had accrued under Blenheim 1862, the former parent company. The understanding was that £400,000 owed in taxes would be paid off as part of the negotiations to take over the club.
Well, it seems Qadbak has reneged on its promises. The club has been in the news for its firing of Ian McParland, a popular manager; the Sol Campbell no show, and Sven Goran Ericksson's Sweden courtship, and countless stories about its layered ownership.
Their performance on the pitch has been up and down. They are presently fourth in League 2. After their lightning fast start they have had to win at home to make up for their poorer away form with three consecutive losses. Dag and Red are above them in the race to get out of League 2 while Rotherham and Chesterfield are tied with them on points.
