VOTV: Varney speaks out following latest Meire muddle (15/2)

edited February 2016 in General Charlton
PV responds to the fact that Meire has already contradicted Duchatelet's statement about his previous approach to the club and confirms the offer is still on the table.

    Love this comment

    It is true that I would be in at 7.30am each day and on a matchday there was always a script to ensure every little detail of the day was covered. My critics would probably say I was too hands on!”

    Peter should really be ashamed of himself, hated it when he was too hands on, those years we were in the Premier League with a turnover of £40m were simply awful


    "there was always a script to ensure every little detail of the day was covered"

    I can't imagine to which little "detail" from Saturday this is an oblique reference.

    Probably making sure that the napkins were folded correctly for the directors' meal - nothing else springs to my mind....

    Offer still open....that is interesting and something we should, if possible, find out more about. If the offer is to invest first (by taking apart of the club) and then in the fullness of time take a full takeover perhaps RD may listen to that approach rather than a full blown takeover at this stage. It gives RD the opportunity to get extra cash now to help the squad maintain Championship status and remain part of the board for a period of time before selling completely!!

    Probably too late for this season now, if we had significant funds at the start of January and someone other than Fraeye in charge, it could have made a difference

    I posted this stuff on another thread but pasted into this one because I still think it shows the gulf in ability between Meet You On The Corner Meire and Meet You Like A Proper CEO Varney and it was trying to raise a serious question after Roland's Report.:

    A question for Airman -
    Did the welcome opening of dialogue on a street corner between our CEO and your good self yesterday actually prompt her to agree to a PROPER meeting of any sort between the protest leaders and her?
    Did she take your number or details, or suggest a suitable time for the chance to have a constructive discussion? If she did then that might suggest that this regime were trying to rectify some of the mistakes Roland referred to.
    If she didn't then that just indicates more of the same old tripe.
    Now I am not known for my psychic abilities, but some strange intuition tells me that no meeting was really arranged by Katrien Meire.;-)
    And if my clairvoyancy is wrong, and indeed there was, may I suggest, Airman that you check on the day if said meeting is actually taking place.
    Only sometimes CEOs can get very busy, very suddenly with other important things. Don't cancel tea with the vicar, Airman, or doing your hair on that day just yet ;-)

    Of course not.

    Roland caught between a rock and a hard place.

    If we go down the price plummets.

    If we stay up he has to deal with FFP limit going up to £13m meaning his break even model looks even more infeasible.

    IF only Varney had approached Roland back last August when the team was top six and so the price would have been at it's highest.....Oh, yeah he did but KM wasted six months avoiding the meeting while the team, and so the price, went on a massive slide.

    Inept as Meire is, it does sound as though for some reason Murray has had a major role to play in this meeting never happening.
    Totally agree. Murray obviously hates Varney and he's punishing the club because of his pathetic vendetta.
    I'd love to know what the issue is between Murray and Varney.
    I'm inclined to believe it is at the root of the rebuff of Varney's overtures.
    Otherwise, it just appears like basic pig ignorance on the part of Meire/ Duchatelet.

    Airman, a couple of weeks ago I heard that Murray himself had some involvement in another interested group. You heard anything of the sort?

    Great point RM - maybe if Roland had a bit more cash we could actually afford to buy players that have spent time playing football in recent memory rather than limping around the treatment room. I mean, it's not like we're danger of being relegated or anything, is it?

    We must all bow to the superior experience and wisdom of Roland (football genius) and Katrien (popular figurehead) in this respect, of course.

    I read it slightly different, RM. I think it is a full takeover but, due to the amount they wish to spend (on players?), then some of the money has to come from a 'sponsership' (eg The XYZ Valley for £50M a year ;-)) to get around FFP limitations.
    Fair point @Hex, you could be correct there. However whatever it is, we somehow need to get RD to at least sit down and talk!!

    I think the rules stop owners doing that ie sponsoring themselves as a trick to get around FFP
