    More Gus-related disclosures from Paul Barber; if this stuff bores you, do not open thread


    0 Not allowed!
    The Supporters' Club held it's AGM last night (Wednesday). Paul Barber was in attendance; the latest newsletter (published today) includes a brief report:-

    Paul Barber:-

    "Gus had a contract, we expected him to honour it, he didn't want to. He was an asset to the club and the club needs to protect its assets. Club has to come first. Any "court" action by Gus will be private arbitration."

    "Gus Poyet was not sacked live on TV but headlines damaged the club. Club did not know he was on TV. On that Sunday, Tony Bloom met Gus face-to-face several hours before Match of the Day and he didn't say he would be on TV. There were legal reasons for the timing, and the timing was known to Gus and his legal advisers. Would we really take a decision that would damage the club deliberately, or humiliate someone deliberately? Process had reached a point where it could not go on any longer."

    Barber is also quoted as saying that the Queen's Road ticket office closed as it wasn't economic to run - it sold very few tickets. Trade there has been dropping and the shop will close next year. There may be another city-centre shop but it won't be in Queen's Road.

    They bought the LED advertising boards this year to beat Financial Fair Play restrictions.

    They also tried to get a concert from The Who, but there was not a large enough "window" in the summer.

    Which is why you are my favourite poster on NSC. Accurate and up to date Albion facts, unadorned, and succinctly put. Use that as your next strapline

    I love AZ's posts. So many ITK dicks on here, but he just posts FACT.

      Thanks for that sir. I look forward to reading it in full in the excellent monthly newsletter
      Who provided the first pic of Amex Progress? Who told you of the Amex staff sackings? Who told you that Sammy Lee wasn't coming?

      The guy has been brought in on a brief to help us beat financial fair play. If he does that right, it means we'll have more to spend on the playing budget as he'll be saving us money elsewhere, leading to a more successful team.

      Some people just like to pick up in anything remotely negative. Look at the bigger picture.

      More like 'We won't get fooled again' according to some on here. Just need the Magic Bus to sort out transport problems now

      Pity. With a large enough window you can see for miles.

      Okay, the Gus stuff..

      I'm a little confused. Here it is implied that Gus was sacked because he 'didn't want to honour his contract'. i.e. the club didn't want to risk him leaving part way through this season. That sounds fair enough to me, but elsewhere we've been told that the club sacked Gus for 'gross misconduct'. These two accounts don't really tally, other than the club has found some 'gross misconduct' that was earlier deemed not worthy of instant suspension. Further supports the theory that this is all money-related, want him gone but don't want to pay compo.

      Ah well. Perhaps we all suspected this anyway. Thanks for the info, don't want to get into another Gus binfest. Here's hoping B.W. doesn't open this thread

      You will still pay a booking fee if you go to the Amex with cash.

      NSC at its very best ~ a post based on assumption on a matter the poster hasn't got a clue about!!
      When people are rude to you, they reveal who they are, not who you are.
