    Not to spoil this point, but google sometimes filters results based on where you live and things you've previously been interested in.

    And a process that 91 other clubs seem to have absolutely no issue with.

    I'm with you Otis; I'd long hoped that the al-Hasawis would at least learn from their mistakes, but every season it's gotten worse.

    He can be the most enthusiastic supporter ever, but Fawaz seemingly cannot grasp even the most simple basics of running a football club.

    I'm in the exact same boat as you mate.

    I have lost every bit of faith I had in him, now. I appreciate his efforts, but Fawaz's management style consists of putting his money into a pocket with loads of holes in it, and not bothering to repair the hole.

    Based on my previous search results?

    That's odd because the only tit I saw doing that search was Mark Arthur........

    came close a couple of times. Didn't Stuart Dryden go to prison for fraud around the time he was our chairman.

    Dryden was jailed for defrauding the Post Office (by cashing the state pensions of deceased customers), whilst Maurice Rowarth was convicted of committing fraud within his own accountancy business (I'm pretty sure he served time, but if I'm wrong it was a suspended sentence). However, neither were actually in office at the CG when they went for trial.

    As for Fred Reacher......obviously nothing could be "proved"!

    I always thought that these odd individuals added interest to the quaint system we had in place in those days. It seemed to work quite well because we had genuinely enthusiastic and knowledgeable people actually doing the work.

    Mind you, I was miles away and only saw things at a distance, perhaps close up it was a bit less efficient than my fond memories.

    A bit more; according to the Greek press, he will not leave Olympiacos until October (tying up loose ends, I guess). So, I guess that Sam Gordon will continue to run things for a little while.

    At least he shouldn't be put off by any Nottingham riots. The Greeks like a bit of a riot too don't they?

    Despite semi-official leaks to the press during the summer, Vrentzos has still not left Olympiacos (this was supposed to happen by October). He is still clearly in charge of things here, perhaps because this has been a bad year for us, and there are a number of changes in the club's hierarchy and in football personnel that EM wants him to oversee before he finally goes.

    He was very visible in Nottingham yesterday afternoon GBG.

    Could he be overseeing things as a part of the transition period at Olympiakos? Some kind of job shadowing scheme perhaps?

    Maurice Rowarth was 'sent away' for 2 years according to the Rage Magazine pdf here - https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rc...EuEbhw__-Ym_sh

    It dates from 1994 I think and as well as discussing Forests financial problems at the time, they muse what the effect of the internet will be on clubs.

    I know he spends a lot of time at Nottingham, but he has not yet left his post here either officially or actually (he was the one who went to talk to the players after the defeat to Panathinaikos).

    Maybe he'll resign in January. We already know who the successor will be (he is the administrative director of the academy and the associated football schools), but I guess EM trusts Vrentzos too much to let the new guy handle a number of appointments and complicated negotiations on outgoing and incoming contracts from day 1.

    Vrentzos is at pretty much every game, so he must be here a large amount of his time.

    I imagine Forest have been taking up a lot of his time over the past few months too. Maybe it will just be a joint role between the clubs?

    At long last, Vrentzos finally left officially the position of CEO of Olympiacos (he remains a member of the Board). His successor is the former administrative director of the Academy, as expected.

    Vrentzos is now your full-time CEO.
