Usually ignore Twitter stuff but this guy seems pretty in the loop with Watford FC judging by his Twitter posts in the link above

Former CEO at Watford I think. Might be in line to fill a gap on the board now CS has gone. Obviously not chairman as KD is filling that role now, but maybe filling a gap elsewhere?

Just read a few things about him by Watford fans.

He seems very bad news. Hope it ain't true.

Plenty of info about him here (including the comments).

http://www.watfordob...on&topic_id=414

Seems like he was pretty much universally hated. And on £300k a year :/

If we're going along the line of accurate descriptive titles can we try "Moaners' Corner" next please? Posted Image

Could he be a consultant brought in to help with the Financial Fair Play streamlining and the associated redundancy process?

Well he's certainly got the right name. Perhaps he's going to kick the Nimbys arses.

All those redundancies, were they to make way for one higher salary and boardroom member?

Not exactly what you would call streamlining! Seems to fly in the face of what was reported a few days ago.

Although it is just a tweet the guy involved clearly knows a lot about Watford and also Mark Ashton, so unless someone else (like Guy Price?) is moving on, like TRL I can't see any logic to this, as the financial fair play ramifications are why we are making redundancies amongst the non football staff.

As to the post about "kicking Nimby's arses"- get real, they seemingly hold all the cards, whether or not they follow the correct process or lie to courts and to inspectors...

Throwing more money away. We have just got practically a new board in, and we haven't given them a chance to sort things out, why throw more money at it?

From what I have been told (by a really reliable source) he has been working for Keith Dawes and has come in to help sort out the mess Sexstone has left (which is a lot worse than originally thought i.e. the wages that Spink and Owers were excessively high) The sexstone fall out has not been fully realised yet

Never thought much of the bloke. Would not be surprised if there is a fallout but knowing City it will be kept very professionally in house and out of the way of the likes of us to pour over. And rightly so.

No New City talent in Cuba, trying Cebu instead.

Bristol City, Clevedon Town and Industriales.

Couldnt agree more.........in the 80's I had one of these b******y chinless wonders 'advise' me on my business to expand, resulting in me going bankrupt 3 years later.My business was a sponsor of BCFC in the 70's. These types are a breed apart, not risking their money and walking to their next victim every once in a while,unfortunately they have good chat up lines and businesses believe the bulls******g scum. Looking at the debts at most football clubs surely even our board wouldn't get sucked in or would they :smartass:

By the looks of it he has already done some work for us and worked alongside Guy Price and Kevin Smith.
