How many clubs have had such a succession of shit owners?
Bendalls: North Stand fiasco and managed to piss off our most successful manager in modern times.

Ellis: Relegation, Turner, McNeil, Venglos etc, the share issue and managed to sell the club to the fuckwit Lerner.

Lerner: Fuckwit who sold the club to Xia.

Xia: Fuckwit who managed to put the world famous AVFC into administration. (Even if we manage to pull through this, there's no future for him at AVFC. Too many bridges burned.)

Charlatans the fucking lot of em!

Of course they knew there wasn’t any games on in June, that’s why they waited until then to dig the pitch up. They aren’t stupid you know.
I just hope there is enough money to pay for the pitch

I drove past this afternoon , the work is underway.Whether it gets finished though.

Maybe the local garden centre can come and lay a bit of turf and stick their name next to it as a promo for free.

Collymore saying that Wyness went behind Tony's back and pitched the club to a few potential buyers on the cheap.

Sounds like he was at least trying to do something to save the situation.

Didn't even consider that side of it, tbh. I guess instead of getting the biggest profit for Tony, you could come to assumption that Wyness wanted to get the club out of his hands as quickly and easily as possible. Not very loyal to a man that brought you back into football with a big job at a big club.

Or he was trying to save his own neck and fuck his boss over at the same time.

That's the angle I am assuming ...at the very least Wyness picked Bruce so is culpable for his failures .The question is who had final say on transfers and wages

There'd be no point of a CEO if it wasn't the CEO.

Sounds like he was acting a little shadily,, but the fact that the money from Xia has been drying up for some time now is surely the primary problem and concern?

Obviously the money situation is the most important, but that's totally different to whether Wyness was trying to save the club or his own neck. We have no idea at present. It may all have been very altruistic on his part, or he could have been a backstabbing twat that was hawking around confidential info in an attempt to get in with a new owner and cover his own incompetence.
