    He’s just digging a bigger pit for his money.

    From the Q&A thread ... and posted at around 3.30pm this afternoon.


    "You know ... being the Head of large organization in the US is the same as being the Head of a football Club in the UK.  It's a business ... right?  And I am a successful business man.

    I'm here quite a lot.  Also,  I now have my son, Marden, here too.  And he can be my eyes and ears on the ground.  So, we're pretty confident about things.  You don't have to worry."


    It's a gift.  Thank you.

    Sadly, I wasn't joking earlier.

    The BBC Radio London interview shows exactly how Sandgaard thinks and why we are doomed to failure against his stated objectives.

    Look out for job ads at The Valley for 'product promotional agents' (aka Sales reps) as we take our new brand of soccer football to the global market.

    "Hey, Marden.  Soccer's not so big in the Pacific right now and there's more than 2 million people out there.  Why don't we do 'bring a Maori for a pound?".

    It's exhausting to read all the constant negativity on here, fuck knows how some of you live, nay revel in it day in day out...
    If you can genuinely point out what part of his plan makes sense please do. Until then I can't see him as anything other than a more charismatic and well intended Roland Mark 2.

    I like him. I want him to succeed. But based on the interview I see nothing that suggests he actually will.
    I mean that's a pretty big difference off the bat and is what his buying him more time than Roland ever got.
    Seeing that almost the first thing the Belgian did was give Yann away it's not surprising he wasn't given time.

    He’s made mistakes and he will no doubt make more but does everyone expect us to suddenly do a Southampton and shoot up the leagues? The guy is trying his hardest and spending money. He’s not out to fail so let’s cut him some slack? Not many people would put themselves in his shoes and he isn’t ruining the club like others have. 
    Isn't he? Running at an 8million loss in League one does not sound like a viable longterm plan. And if the money does dry up, he doesn't even have much in the way of assets - Roland still owns those.

    By no means is he out to fail and I give him full credit for putting his own money into this but giving him slack won't save him and won't save the club if we are still flailing around in this division in a few years time.

    I get that he can't go into details of strategy on a radio show. But if we are looking for evidence of a strategy, I can't see any. The attempts to fill the ground have resulted in an apology, there was the ridiculous "special" offers for being a ST holder, we have spent a lot for L1 on players who are mostly duds (on the evidence so far, anyway) and we are moving closer, week by week, to the relegation zone. Paid attendance mostly correlates to success on the field. The trouble with sport compared to lots of other business, I suppose, is that there is no guarantee of increased revenue following increased spending. Oh well.

    Concerning that he still feels he can do without local "industry" expertise in running a football club.

    If Thomas had bought a winery or a restaurant or a haulage company, I'm sure he would have used professional management to help run them, as they're totally different business sectors to his own expertise.

    Sorry if anyone is expecting that – it ain’t happening. After that we saw someone come in – Roland Duchatelet – with a much better, maybe not business understanding, but ran the club more financially healthy – didn’t lose that much money. But obviously didn’t get enough in the trenches to turn the right dials and adjust the right parts of the club.

    TS believes RD didn’t lose that much money?

    I mean Thomas has better teeth than Roland because they have at least seen some toothpaste but Roland had much better hair. 
    Thomas needs to embrace the baldness and lop it off otherwise I worry he’s going to have a Mouthall pube transplant on his bonce the next time we see him….

    If I got this level of support at my job I think I’d tell them where to stick it, especially if success is largely dependent on the bloke saying it and his “10x more knowledge than a sky tv watcher” recruitment specialist.

    not sure how good JJ is at smoothing pieces of wood though, so maybe planing isn’t a strong suit

    I'm sure that sandgaard really cares about the club & his heart is in the right place, it's just such a shame that his head is stuck up his arse.
    Pretty much exactly the same way I feel honestly.

    Personally I just think it’s bad timing for the interview. If we’d won the last 5 there would be none of the negativity. 

    Im not sure I agree with all his points, but let’s try and treat it without having the current form at the forefront of the mind?

    If we’d won the last 5 but we haven’t. When is it down to him?
