That headline reads like Mo has gone.... 

 

It's meant to refer to the spat between Rowe and Mo that was the final straw in Rowe being sold by Mo......

Interesting listen that.  Far superior to that horrible podcast we use to endure that was akin to matey fm.

 

The ownership of the stand is obviously going to rumble on.   Why would you pay £6m (!!??) to Blitz when there is no other buyer visible or likely?  You wouldn't... you'd hang on and hope for less.  (*that is assuming he has the funds to buy it of course).  However, he should hold his nose and sort out the relationship with OEC in the short term in knowledge that the OEC need that as much as he does.

Thanks Kowenicki. I don't know whether you've caught up on any previous episodes or not, but you might like this one from November where from about 36 minutes in, we delve into the role & legacy of Simon Blitz's involvement with the club:

A good listen lads well done, don't agree with the Macalmont opinion though but that's what opinions are about. Keep up the good work.

 

Thank you both. It is indeed C.O.JONES. That's what we want the podcast to be about, everyone is entitled to an opinion and to be heard.

Just listened. Really good discussion. Andy is bang on about Blitz and his legacy.  The current ownership is HIS legacy. 
 

Make no mistake, our current predicament and our short/medium term future is massively down to Blitz. I’ve said it myself many times.
 

Unlike you Matt, I DO mostly blame Blitz for where we are. I think you said it’s fine because he “just wants to get back what he has put in”. This is personal wealth. It’s not a balance sheet. He might want it all back, but it ain’t happening.  
 

He’s totally unrealistic in his expectations and he is holding this club to ransom. The way a minority of fans, the OEC lads (FLG?) and others are prepared to turn a blind eye, support and even get in to bed with that man sickens me. 
 

As Andy said, nobody with any sense was buying the club plus the ground for the amounts talked about by Blitz. So here we are...

 

PTB always seem to come across well too when I hear them.

Another good listen Matt. 

 

I don’t agree with your view that Mo operates as a ‘normal’ Sporting director. Or perhaps that we should look at him as such- ie in terms of accountability. One of the lads picked up on this, and said he’s never going to sack his brother and that’s the way I see it. For instance - what normal sporting director would be allowed to show no interest in the academy, or be able to be as hands on with the first team as Mo?? Sometimes the discussion is framed with a presumption that normal rules apply,  when beneath the veneer it’s clear we are still hostage to ALMO’s whim’s. Mo will never be sacked IMO, and recruitment of players and managers will continue to depend on which on which side of the bed the owners get out from.

Another good listen

 

Quite an interesting point picked up by Stephen at the end was regarding comparing our recent history with that and the likes of Stockport County and Bury and Rochdale. Our memories seem to come from individual games rather than whole seasons. If you look at the last 20years even the likes of Bury Rochdale and Stockport who have had very modest Histories and clubs we should argue we are bigger than have celebrated atleast 2 promotions. So not just an individual big day out but a whole 8-9months of memorable days out. Plus an end of season pitch invasion which isn't just a load of bored adolescents but everyone on the pitch wanting to carry the players on the shoulders as they celebrate a successful season. Even a lap of honour where we all stop behind and applaud the players. I can't remember the last time I stopped behind for one of them.

 

You can argue this is probably one of the reasons why we have such a big and disproportionate away support compared to our home support, we also have the best record out of anyone when it comes to FA cup giant killings we love a big day out who doesn't but a promotion season would be season of progress and it would more likely be the start of something. Its not going to happen under this ownership obviously, The Lemsagams haven't the funds or the intelligence to make this happen. But it needs to happen even if its out of this division because the younger generation needs a season not just an individual a game they can look back on with fondness.

 

Some people have described this season as being entertaining on saturday we won 3-2 their was a man sent off and a penalty missed as individual game that might be the case that its entertaining but its no good winning 3-2 on saturday and losing 3-2 on tuesday you are just going to be going absolutely nowhere. What will get people really excited is not the odd individual game but progress over a sustained period of time.

Why should he pay £6million to Blitz because the only way out of being the tenant here is if he buys the ground lock stock and Barrell. If Abdullah had 1 fucking brain cell he would have know this all along even before he bought the club. Blitz holds all the cards here he can just sit back and claim the rent for the next 10 years where else are we going to play? 

 

Even if we did own the ground we wouldn't go anywhere anyway as The Lemsagams haven't got the intelligence to make us successful.

 

Blitz is also a Dick btw I'm not defending him just to clarify.

I’m not sure you read my post properly. The penultimate paragraph was very clear.  Or perhaps it was too subtle? 
 

However, this current situation is down to Blitz greed first and foremost.

 

As for your first point. Nobody is paying £6m for an asset that isn’t worth anywhere near £6m. Unless they are an even bigger idiot than AL. Would you want that person in charge?

Thanks LOF. We don't disagree. Sometimes the anchor needs to take either a contrary tone or play devils advocate in order to elicit the debate we want on the pod. The point you raised above is one we are looking to explore in future episode(s).

Yeah, fair comment. 

Obviously worked, because it piqued my interest. 👍🏻

Get Blitz on the POD ? Swear he did one a few months back. Could be worth getting him out again.
