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.

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.
A CEO reports to the Chairman and operates the business for the benefit of the shareholders and in this case the Chairman and Shreholders is Xia.
There would be a Financial limit under which the CEO would operate and major expenditure would require the Authority of the Chairman.
So it is unlikely that Transfers would be conducted without Xia approval.
Also Xia had Rongtian He as his daily eyes and ears at the club and knowing how the Chinese work he would have been sending regular updates back to Xia.
So the idea that Wyness was running the club off his own bat is far fetched to say the least.

I'm worried about the future because if history is any guide we will continue to stumble from one crisis to another. Apart from the occasional brief respite we've been badly owned and managed for pretty much the past century. That's who we are.

Well for most of my lifetime we've been a stable top flight side that occasionally had a really enjoyable season and I'd be happy with that for a while

Obviously I wasn't at the time. And I probably wouldn't be after three years because like other football fans I'm essentially a delusional idiot when it comes to my team. But right now I'd be very happy with that.

Does anybody ITK know what the current state of the pitch replacement is? I know it could be academic if we end up ground sharing with Alvechurch as West Midlands Villa Village ( 2018) FC next season but itís a minor worry that  keeps nagging away at me. Probably whatís left of my brain trying to distract me from the bigger Pit of Misery worries.

Worrying article, but Wyness doesn't come out of it with any credit. Just what exactly has he done in the past that amounts to a "long history of screwing over other football clubs"?

This bit made me chuckle.

Whatís so bloody frustrating is that it doesnít take millions and millions or genius to get out of this league. It just takes a sensible plan and a manager who can think on his feet. The ludicrous approach of massively overspending on older players was so unnecessary and flawed.
