Similar to Niall Quinn maybe? Chris Turner (I think) was at Hartlepool until today, officially a director, not the manager.

I still am very sceptical, but it being mentioned before, the resignation today after a relatively good start etc. Who knows.

Martin O'Neill is my cousin and he's left Villa to take charge at Hillsborough in a director of football role.

I've got as much evidence as anyone else.

He's got no money and he's not wanted as the manager.... In what capacity would you welcome him back????

He'd be adding nothing more than me or thee.

the nial quin anology is a good one tbh. its common practice to have someone "front" a consortium, to be viewed as a freindly face and say the right things to the fans. makes me wonder if things are now moving apace. stories were rife the sb had stumbled on the truth and had been asked to keep it under wraps? maybe times up forcing his hand. Poolies are certainly finding it a bit suspicous.

A few quotes from Hartlepool forum:

Is IOR that owns Hartlepool, the same IOR oil company owned by Berger Larsson?

So, IOR may have stopped putting money into HUFC(?)

So have Chris Turner and Russ Green resigned to move to SWFC with Berger Larsson (or IOR)? Who knows.

This from the Daily Mail, way back in March 2007!!! It says Larsson is an old friend of Dave Allen..

Slick business for Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday chairman Dave Allen is in advanced negotiations with a Norwegian oil magnate to take joint control at Hillsborough.

Allen, who owns just 11 per cent of the Championship club despite being chairman and major backer, is planning to launch a new shares issue in tandem with Berger Larsson, currently the main stakeholder of League Two leaders Hartlepool.

The move would see the two men underwrite a multi-million pounds rights package that would stabilise debt-ridden Wednesday and create much needed investment to underpin a return to the Premiership.

Allen's board are also considering three other approaches, including interest from an unnamed Chinese casino owner who flew in to watch the midweek 1-1 draw with Plymouth.

But the connection with oil-rich Larsson, a long-standing friend of Allen, is considered the likeliest resolution.

Allen said: "It would certainly be a way forward that would bring some money into the club ? and it would be looked on favourably by our bank."

The Co-op Bank, who shoulder most of the club's £26m debt, had an influential part in Wednesday fighting off the advances of former Chelsea chairman Ken Bates, who then switched to Yorkshire rivals Leeds.

Under FA rules, Larsson - whose business is based in Aberdeen - would have to relinquish his stake in Hartlepool, as part owner of the north-east club to join Allen in a new football venture.
