Default Re: Don Bircham Statement RE Club Loans

Don did get slated on here for things like the 'warchest' comment. Let's not all pretend he was universally loved. I think we would all have in back now though.

What year did we have the olly murs and UB40 concerts? Anyone got any idea what sort of revenue these generated and how that money got spent

The club board hid these loans from the WST Board - the reason we put a majority of the club board as WST board members was so as the WST were fully up to speed with events at the club. There was no reason that this should have been hidden from the main board.

That is the crux of the issue for me.

That is the failure here.

Now compounded by Saturday's statement denying all knowledge and claiming to have missed it.

Defo, he was criticised loads. He also had a huge ego, no doubt about it. Always used to make out like he was the worlds toughest negotiator etc.

I don't know that many company ceo's who aren't a bit of a helmet at times though. Aggressive / Alpha personalities and all that. Probably best to judge on their achievements. Spencer on the other hand has achieved the biggest divide in 2 decades between fans. He has stepped up the numbers in the recruitment department however

It is my understanding that Barry Horne knew about Mills's issues before we hired him and tried to warn the board.

A small number of us did, Mills was only only ever a popularity competition type signing. Plus, 'getting one over the Tramps', all common sense went out the window and I'm sure you can guess who were giddy about getting one over them.

Lets look at Spencer for example, no football experience, not a businessman in any form and certainly doesn't command respect. I cringe every time he opens his mouth!

I was one of the people clearing the snow off the pitch, would I volunteer in any form now? Absolutely not.
Everyone has faults. Including Don. What he was good at, as a figurehead particularly, was making people follow.

Don should be here as chairman. I wonder what he'd say if asked?
