Turn for the worse
If at all possible!
Looks as if Tahnoon Nimer has got the access to the Official Site, and following on from last night’s virtual ‘board meeting’ the Syrian has told us he’s removed Southall and Heller and appointed two Romanians to the ESI board. One name we have heard before in recent days Claudiu Florica, cleared on a technicality from a bribery and corruption case when at Microsoft and friend of Nimer. The other board member is sports and aviation lawyer Marian Mihail.
Both are Bucharest orientated and located and this only looks a turn for the worse in my eyes. It is said that Florica and Mihail “will host a meeting with club’s heads of departments today.” As if those poor people haven’t got enough worries in their lives.
Nimer appears more concerned about getting the transfer embargo lifted even though the transfer window is shut and football is on lockdown for the foreseeable future. No mention of proving source and sufficiency of funds to the governing body I see.
Former Barnsley CEO Gauthier Ganaye is a strong possibility for CEO. He was liked by Tykes fans and was responsible for appointing Daniel Stengel. Most recently he was in France at Nice.
