    If Henry is considered feasible - what about JT as manager ?

    Steve Bruce

    Have we ever had anyone french at the club who has done anything approaching adequate:- Garde Vertout Didier Six Ginola Henry has got disaster written all over it - sure he has worked with Wenger and has recent WC experience - but look at Ole gunner wotsit, he had all them years under fergie and totally bombed in management.

    Tony Xia

    I wonder if the new guys are just there to provide finance ? 55% covers there investment - but Xia still runs the club and they have power of veto ? - without a CEO thats how it looks right now (early days I know)

    Villa and FFP

    Don't think FFP is based on the annual accounts though - its a separate statement they have to submit.

    Appointing Henry would be a **** up of RDM proportions - and IMO would hint that XIA is still calling the shots.

    CEO Vacancy - who's next ?

    Surprisingly we have new owners then - an early appointment of CEO would be good - any ideas who are new overlords will choose ?

    I don't think we can spend much money due to FFP - at best its a couple @ £3m , free's and loans

    Executive Chair" generally simply means that the chair of the board is an employee of the company, almost certainly the CEO. "Non-executive Chair" means that the chair is someone not an employee of the company. That person is usually a true independent but may also be a former CEO of the company.

    Doesn't executive chairman mean he has no voting power ?

    Time for a takeover

    Ive been scouring the web looking for dirt on our new owners, check bankruptcy cases, deals they have made, business they have been involved with - I have uncovered one piece concerning both owners which may be cause for concern Neither of them are vegetarians !

    This feels a lot better than when Xia took over - which never felt right to me. We know the value of these guys and where the money has come from. Lets hope its as good as it seems...
