It’s a strange time to announce this. Can’t think of a reason it couldn’t wait for the overall announcement, or the days following.
Oooooo, it's definitely a possibility
Seems strange announcing appointments like this before the takeover is announced
Oh, are we no longer a travel company? We’ve been more of a holiday camp than a football club for a number of years tbf..
It's a backroom appointment, at one time it wouldn't even be news tbh.
It's only because we're desperate that we're making bid deals of everything.
Only thing I can think of is that it's all going to be in the takeover statement to explain the overall plan and where these new lads fit in and why they are the right people to be in the roles.
It's got to be announced tomorrow surely. How many more appointments can someone make when they don't 'own' the club.
Look at it this way.
If KLD is announced first and says 'Don't worry everyone, I'll be appointing lots of great new staff' ...
... people would say 'Yeah, we've heard all that before mate'.
This way he's stating he means business before his bum even hits the chair.
I think it could be similar to Short’s reign whereas he has people here running the club while he’s in Switzerland but at least Rodwell and Speakman are football people and the new guy with his CV should be no mug.
Make you think as though tomorrow might be the big day.
I agree in some ways but I believe KLD will be much more involved, much more.
He doesn't have too many commitments and Switzerland is boring tbh.
This is a 23 year old with a lifetime loving football ...
... Short was an old financier who barely knew the game.
So what time tomorrow should we expect the announcement
Approximately 14.00 hrs
I hope he comes over here and falls in love with the place. Big house in Cleadon, boat in Roker marina and his plane at Usworth airport. Who needs more than that at 23
I don't think there will be any appointments like 'gary the hair' being made. I knew him when he was a milkman and it was always going to be a clusterfuck.
Wonder where the link is for this appointment. Lifelong fan but He’s not a footballing man was it advertised or do you think he knows Speakman or maybe Jones
He's 23 mate, just step back and imagine how exciting this all is for him.
He must be absolutely buzzing, his dad used to live it at Marseille.
Forget the boats in the marina, he would love a pedalo on Roker park pond when the illuminations are on eating his chip butty.
KLD used executive recruiters to find Speakman. No reason he didn’t do the same for this.
Thats the benefit of acting like a big company - you attract the best person that exists and is willing to take the job, not just the best person you know.
