Pompey 5, Hmrc 0: A Comprensive Win, But There's Work Still To Be Done...

In the end it was a whitewash. Pompey 5, HMRC 0 if you like. While there will be considerable gnashing of teeth and wailing about Pompey 'getting away with it' the truth of the matter is that HMRC were trying to use Portsmouth City Football Club as a scarificial lamb for the wider perceived sins of football.
