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).

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

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...

He is working as a consultant apparently, good use of money??

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?

Great....another corporate suit drawing a massive salary.....and it seems a not very good one,

Concerning comment regarding "fitandproperperson"

Just what the club needs.

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.

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:
