Have to say i’m no fan of Xia, but during his reign I enjoyed the odd transfer tweet and felt his intentions were honourable. In reality though, we were probably a laughing stock at the time and I for one didn’t see it. Yes, he was a major chancer and he gambled money unwisely to reach the Premier League promised land. It didn’t work and we know the rest.
However, the guy above is simply a business leach/toad. Probably talks a good game in meetings etc, but in reality knows bugger all about running a professional company and just wants his big bonuses. Didn’t Everton fans dislike him and he arrived with a huge health warning? Just look at his desk! I know it’s petty, but even the pic above winds me up. Just messy. Does Purlow’s desk look like this? I very much doubt it. Purslow’s desk probably looks more like something from a Patrick Bateman film. The fact that he has an Alexa on his desk also makes me smile - is it his adviser throughout the day? I see people like Wyness all the time in my line of work and I dislike them immensely. Coming up with hollow buzz words like “Villa engine”, which creates and achieves nothing.
The latest round of tweet exchanges says it all really “Karma is a bitch”? Pathetic. Just show some form of professionalism and dignity, and keep it shut.
Like I said earlier, Xia was a chancer, but he didn’t buy the club to run it into the ground and lose money did he? He wanted success and to make money surely. Where he went badly wrong was his trust in people like the above.
In summary, the whole Xia reign was a complete farce and a real mess. Needs to be put to bed, but in some ways not forgotten. It needs to be remembered in the sense of “let’s not make those mistakes again”. The current regime are the complete opposite and now I feel truly blessed. We’re in really good hands. UTV
