More mid-table obscurity...

Hopefully things will change with the new regime... until you see who's one place above us (with exactly the same score)!

Controversial opinion: I think Hurst recognised this but was too much of a nob / not talented enough to put it right

I don't / haven't lived there, but I really think it would - depending on your target level of lifestyle of course.

I would definitely join / have a look at this expat group if you're interested. The guy who runs it has uploaded loads of incredibly useful documents about living in Portugal (I was seriously considering it before 2nd Wave): https://www.facebook.com/groups/265570920476558

It's called the Non Habitual Residency Scheme and it applies to both EU and non-EU:

Portugal - the easiest for citizenship / residency, you just need to spend 5 years there and you get permanent residency*

Croatia would also be on my list

I wouldn't worry about the language - everywhere you go you'll find people who speak English, especially in main cities - locals but also ex pat communities. They will most likely be the people you connect with the most to start with (from all walks of life, not Brit gammons). Every major city has an expat Facebook group, and they are a fantastic resource

*assuming you don't have EU residency already

If we're going by the current Galatasaray squad who's a big name at the end of their career with English football experience, then:

Radamel Falcao

It's all about Ordinary voting shares. ORG own 9 and Three Lions own 3 so it seems like they actually have more influence than just 5%

I think 'gelling' is less of a problem these days with lots of data to inform your recruitment choices and with a system the manager hopefully knows inside out

As my reply above says, that's not true. O'Leary is on the same level as the Three Lions, in fact judging by his retaining a part of significant control it seems as if O'Leary has a larger stake than the other three.

And ORG has the right to remove directors, which makes them significantly more than investors

Currently O'Leary and ORG are sharing significant control and this is published in full view on Companies House

But ORG still have the right to remove or appoint directors

Yes, they'll put whoever they want in charge.. Clegg, Milne etc My point being too much impatience can have a detrimental effect. I really believe we've got the right guys in charge but it'll take time.

The non-voting shares isn't relevant, what's relevant is persons with significant control:

Although interestingly O'Leary still has it, sharing it with ORG so maybe that answers my question - Edit: ORG have the right to remove or appoint directors

Would be great to know if there was something in place (i.e. a contract) that, say, gives Three Lions a specific period of time to rule unimpeded or if they meet certain targets etc

I remember him retiring and feeling very sorry for him. Great that he's made the most of it. He must be seriously highly thought of to be ahead of Powell, King etc

Up until now there were 4 shares in Gamechanger 20 - 1 each held by O'Leary, Johnson, Bakay and Detmer. This new share issue means ORG have now been given their shares (90% of them), and have control over the club.

This has been a slight concern for me... O'Leary said at the press conference that Ed Schwartz / ORG will take a back seat, but legally speaking if they grow impatient with the Three Lions' progress (or lack of), they can turf them out
