Cor Evans lost over £100 Mill during the pandemic
at 15:21 12 Apr 2021

You realise all those numbers are estimates and in the case of Evans it's very difficult to estimate his wealth since his business is privately owned etc?

I expect the value of his real estate appreciated significantly in the last 12 months so whilst cash resources would have been impacted, overall he won't be much worse off.

Pretty much sums it up. Norwood hasn't looked fit in his entire time here yet has always looked the standout player - that shows how poor our striking options are/have been.

What does this mean for Lee O’Neil?
at 12:04 9 Apr 2021

You have no idea what he did or didn't say to the owner.

He clearly had no authority and had very little control of aspects of the club he was asked to talk to the general public about.

Personally I'd never have taken on such a role under ME because unless the team is doing well (and therefore everybody is happy) you're completely thrown under the bus. I guess with a young family, a love for the club you work for, a belief that you can make it all work, a bigger salary than before etc you think twice and convince yourself it's worth doing.

ORG are probably less likely than an individual to pull the plug. However, if things don't go particularly well then I think it's fair to say they probably wouldn't be as diligent as ME in finding an appropriate buyer. I'd see that as the major risk and it's very helpful Marcus is staying invested should that ever happen I expect.

3 Lions have a minority equity stake but it's pretty clear that they've been given a bigger role in matters than a 5% stake would ordinarily give you, i.e. ORG is happy for them to take a lead role, have board seats etc.

Johnson and co have clearly had an interest in investing in English football. Once they've found a fund committed to that they'd have worked with MOL to find a suitable club. For all that work and because they clearly see opportunity those that have done the donkey work run the investment (i.e. the club) and ORG hopes they deliver value.

Its an unusual situation
at 22:56 8 Apr 2021

Although of course we haven’t. We haven’t heard anything from ORG and doubt we ever will. They own the vast majority of the club.

What they have done is put a football person in charge of it, something Marcus did to an extent of course when he retained Sheepy initially. That’s a very positive step.

Wouldn’t have thought it’d be 10% of 40m!

Evans’ 40m will be a mixture of payment for equity, payment in lieu of debt and that sort of thing so the value attributable to shares will be very small I expect.

True. Hawkins should start on Saturday - and I’d play him with Norwood if fit, Sears otherwise.

9 points in 8 games since changing the manager....

It’s worth keeping Dozzell, Bishop, Downes, KVY and Woolf - all have heaps of potential and are capable of playing levels above. Bishop has had a decent season.

With the exception of some of the younger players (Lankaster, Dobra for example), I think I’d ship out the rest and start again. Norwood is half decent but nothing like Championship level so surely better moving him on giving his injury record with us.

I said it in the Summer but to get out of this division we desperately need a strong target man type.

Ward was the biggest offender yesterday. Incredibly poor decision making time and time again - always taking the safe option. Nsiala was much better incidentally - almost always looked forward.

Should clearly be trying something different up top and going with Hawkins plus Norwood.

Not bothered either way - same as almost all the others out of contract.

Been a decent player for us, obviously a top bloke etc.

What did Cook say to Blue Action?
at 18:26 2 Apr 2021

Why would anybody keep a conversation like that private - he literally went outside to engage in public with those protesting.

I agree it’s a daft time to protest. Do it if we fall out of contention.

Its indicative of the poor ownership of ITFC

Why even mention it. They should just get on with it.

Whoever is meant to be covering communications at ITFC is having an absolute shocker at the moment.

Change of direction in recruitment 😂

If the level of intelligence is to look at a top goalscorer at Sunderland and work out who has created most of his goals then I could do that for nothing.

Second that. Branksome Chine is a nice spot next to Bournemouth to sit on the beach if the weather is favourable, and has a nice restaurant.

He’s been fine since we stopped trying to pass it around at the back with no purpose.
