Got to know him quite well at one time--and his wife Sandra. Seen little of him since he went to Brussels.
He got McDonald out as he disagreed with him. Good Move
appointed various managers (some with Dooley's help)-- -----Heath--not good.Bruce--hmmm
Robbo--ugh and that is where we went mad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Players had no respect for him.
Blackie--rescued Blades after Robbo, Wembley failure--many good players sold, fans critical. Budget going backwards
Danny Boy--nearly a success.
Kevin has sold all of our good players---usually for financial reasons.
Sadly economic downturn undid the potential in Hungary, China and the Hotel. Perhaps he tried for too much.
We have had some curious appointments at administration level and some of them have not been a success.
Academy is going forward---success. Stadium is far, far better than before----big success.
He was ambitious for the club but I think the west ham issue did his head in and left him totally fed up.
My conclusion is that it was a very good try but the economic downturn and west ham were not within his control
