Antonio Caliendo is asking about payment !

English Web Translation: Caliendo to Briatore: "When you pay me?"

Can you tell us when will paid my debts? Briatore can deny that QPR was bought for 90 million and say what he really paid myself and my associates to buy the club? I hope that answers will not wait"
. The prosecutor and former chairman and shareholder of Queens Park Rangers, Antonio Caliendo, so back with a long note on the property of another English club.
"I agree - writes Caliendo addressing Briatore - when claims that football in England is a business, starting from the stadium property that can create wealth in different ways. In that respect we are still waiting for permission to go with our experts for the evaluation of it, so far denied. It 'a business also sell shares of QPR! can say what he earned from the sale of my shares of QPR by Mr Mittal? Can you tell us if you are giving more shares to other potential buyers and at what price ?

Some Recent "Missed" Birthdays

Bobby Turpie - 13 November 1949
QPR apprentice who made 2 QPR appearances in 1969/1970. As Tony Currie said in an interview on QPR's Official Site: "I first joined QPR on amateur forms when I was 14 to 15 years-old. Then when I left school the Club didn't think I was good enough to sign as an apprentice. Instead, they signed Bob Turpie who was a mate of mine and went to the same School as me. So I then had to go and work for a small building firm..."
