He's a major shareholder . And Director . He will therefore have significant influence . I accept google won't tell you that though .
As you were. (no gap) .


It wasn't a "tap in" as you initially described it, though, Tim, was it?
In my opinion it is a tap in 100%. Adidas (Sawaris) were always going to be our new kit supplier , as for the £** , as per above. Thank Emery & the team for the success on the pitch to make the figures look market rate.
If we were seventeenth in the Premier League (or worse) was Adidas always going to be our new kit supplier?

Aston Villa, (in the scenario I describe above) a bit shit, bit of an half-arsed club. Will the people at Adidas really see it as a good bit of business for Adidas?

That's excatly my point. Because of success / Emery etc the new deal with Adidas is a tap in . I would think after the end of last season the deal was done fairly soon but too late for the Castore disaster .

And, er, jeez bro, if the deal isn't good for Adidas, it doesn't happen. It's not like Adidas are looking and saying "oh look, one of our shareholders has bought a football club, let's supply their kit".

I reckon you still need Heck to make it happen, to grease the wheels.

No offence, but I'm not going to be paying much attention to anything you "spell out" if you can't start by spelling the guy's name correctly.

Isn't it a conflict of interest, anyway?*

Not if you're a majority shareholder.

I don't see where the problem is with giving Heck some credit for this. Having NS on the Adidas board will have almost certainly helped, as he'd have been able to point Heck towards the right doors to knock ... but Adidas are going to do what's best for Adidas. They aren't going to pay above market rate for the deal, and they ain't committing people who are better deployed elsewhere.

When we see the kits & merchandise we'll know how good a deal it is. Cos if Adidas are putting in the effort for us then Heck has done well. That's what we're aiming for, not just being able to get Adidas kits which even Small Heath can manage (if they pay for generic ones and print them up with the bollocks badge)

I think itís safe to say that if Chris Heck wasnít performing and achieving what is expected of him then he simply wouldnít be here very long.

I think he has done really well to get the deals he has, especially as both required getting out of an existing contract to do. But we canít keep doing that every year, so I expect over the next twelve months heís going to really have to work hard to find more revenue and show his value.

If the deal was such a tap-in, how come it has taken 5 years of ownership before he could get them in as our suppliers? (I mean he definitely has all the sway apparently).
