    There's this nagging feeling I've had for a while now that both club and fans are on each other's side and are pulling in the same direction. Feels very odd, might have to go see my GP.

    That's interesting. I was expecting him to be at the first match, but he's been very busy in Greece lately (buying and restructuring a major media conglomerate). He probably came to Nottingham to check how things are progressing, including the works in the training centre where I told you he puts a lot of emphasis, and probably stayed to watch the match. Taylor tried to snatch a mini impromptu interview but failed, apparently.

    Edit: wrong guess again, I didn't see that the match was at the City Ground. He probably went to see the work done there then.

    There were some 'great' moments over the years. Are you serious about promotion. Whitttingham & Pratley wanted to come. Be careful what you wish for. Seems a life time ago.

    Christ almighty, what a gallery of ineptitude.

    I almost want to "Dislike" this post and then be violently sick out the window.

    Aren't we in a much better place now, though?

    Wouldn't blame you at all. In fact please do.

    It was the condescending tone of his that irritated me most along with his inability to know what a football club needs.

    Good times are around the corner mate. Can just feel it.

    I hardly know him, nor can I find much info about him in Greek media, which probably means that he is one of the very few people ever involved with Greek football who made no enemies, hence the press never bothered with him.

    He worked with Giannis Moralis, vice-president of Olympiacos, elected president of Superleague and currently mayor of Piraeus. Anagnostou's MSc was at Sheffield.

    Competent staff.

    We actually have competent staff!

    I also note that in addition to Samantha Gordon who is our Chief Financial Officer, we also have a Head of Finance, reporting to her.

    What a sea-change from when we had an accounts clerk from Fawaz' property company responsible for all our finances. No wonder we were up in court so often.

    What I like about this is that he's been appointed without an unnecessary "we must explain to the fans" press release.

    In the Fawaz days we'd have got some disingenuous statement about how he was taking the club forward when we all knew they'd be sacked within a year.

    These guys just quietly go about their business without any bullshit, and I like that.
