I've never been a fan of this approach in business.  Consultants/advisors/agencies etc.  Too many businesses pay large salaries then bring in "management consultants" to tell them how to do the job. It's absurd, the kings new clothes.

Get a good chief executive, director of football, financial exec, marketing director, sponsorship specialist and someone to liaise with local business. Set up a proper (perhaps part time) scouting network. We need a proper business structure not fly by night consultants changing all the time with no commitment to the club.


100% agreed. I don’t like it at all.

The only time I've seen this management consulting thing work is when things have gone the Lean route, and it requires a huge amount of dedication from the management so that the actual workers start believing in it. Many times the consultants interviewed people and drew process maps but no one at the lower level recognized them as they saw the whole thing in a very different way.

Ok I’ve done some more research, not sure I’ll post it. But this could not be as bad news as it all seems.

 

Lets just wait and see what happens.

 

I've found a few interesting / worrying links/ connections  between these people and certain "advisors" who are regularly seen by Chansiri's side. 

 

Seems a lot of these sports management Companies swim in the same sewers.

In which case these people would want some sort of stake in the club OR some sort of security if their involvement is merely a loan. Chansiri has already mortgaged the stadium, do my guess is these people will have a stake in the club. 

If they are investing that's got to be good news hasn't it?

Not necessarily - it depends on what they bring to the table aside from money and how that converts into benefit.

 

It could potentially be a whole lot of trouble for very little gain.

The Star and The Athletic say he’s the owner of Bali United. I’m sure this isn’t true. 
 

The owner of Bali United is a billionaire called Pieter Tanuri. I’ve looked about and I can’t find any reference to Alonso having any involvement in Bali United, except on his own LinkedIn page and what our local papers reported. 
 

So, again, pure guesswork but could this Alonso fella be the front for Tanuri investing into an English club? He might just be an agent who works with Bali United and now is being offered to us to find new players.

 

Again, pure guesswork. Hopefully the chairman can shed some light on this tomorrow.
