Ever heard of the butcher who became Chairman of his local team and took them to the top of English football?
Bob Lord - Burnley.
There were many others like him, before the big money men and speculators moved in.
In our case, I'm sure McCabe will still be pulling the strings. In general terms, you don't have to have an encyclopaedic knowledge of a business to be a successful chairman. You need to be a good communicator, and listen to those around you who have the experience and knowledge, then get the Board of Directors to agree to a course of action. You need to be decisive, of course, and also have the basic commonsense to know if something is right or wrong.
As I've said above, I've no idea if the new Chairman is any good, but we'll soon find out.
