Where’s wallets? Mark Goldberg (Crystal Palace)
This weekly column will put the shifty past and present owners of our beloved football clubs under the microscope. First up… None other than Mark Goldberg, ex-Crystal Palace chairman.
No relation to wrestler Bill Goldberg, however, this slimy suit managed to powerslam Palace back into the First Division after being relegated from the Premier League in the 1998/99 season.
Despite cutting manager Terry Venables and star player Attilio Lombardo from the wage bill, the club still ended up in administration. Goldberg was subsequently declared bankrupt in 2000.
