Wonder how much each of them paid for their trial?

Hog wrote:"20 hours a day, 6 days a week for 30 years"? He'd dead within two!
from the filing of Oxford City Football Club, Inc. (ie the old WMX Group)
"On December 1, 2012, we executed a consulting agreement (the “Agreement”) with GCE Wealth, Inc. (“GCE”), a company controlled by our CEO, Mr. Thomas Guerriero. Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Agreement, among other things:
§ GCE will act as our consultant through December 2015; and
§ GCE will receive $950 per hour for services rendered; "


If the two French born triallists paid for their trials, was this channelled through OCFC Inc, and then GCE Wealth sticks in a consultancy bill at USD 950 per hour? What do Oxford City get after all of this, apart from two players?

On the face of it this new addition seems to have good credentials ...

This is so strange.

When will it all go wrong (it most certainly will). In reality I wonder what the real strategy is? The City is big enough for what a League 1 club, City's ground I suspect would struggle to get planning permission to enable it to get to league standard and would be very costly. Crowds are what 200 to 300 per game.

I wonder what this exceptional man will be able to do?

Perhaps sell a lot of year-long 'scholar packages' including accommodation to delusional Soccer Mums in the US?

It's not going very well so far. 0 wins from 7 games. 2nd bottom in the league.

"The company is strategically positioned to implement their vertical integration model incorporating all their divisions" ...... and there was naive me thinking that they were merely a local team of part timers struggling to win a game .

I've done an MBA (don't you know) and so business bollocks-speak has been installed in me. I still have no idea though what that statement means........

Part of me wants the circus down the hill to go badly wrong but not to affect City - not sure the two aspirations are mutually exclusive though.

Vertical integration means several companies, each providing different but usually somehow related products/services, all under common control. So for example the merger of Currys and PC World, or in a slightly more diverse sense, the Virgin Group.

Horizontal integration is when the companies all provide the same type of products/service. For example, when Morrisons took over Safeway.

Congratulations, GY - that insight has earned you a BA in Business Management from Oxford City University! Please send your cheque for $10,000 dollars in the post, along with any football paraphernalia you may have knocking about which would help a Division 6 side... :-)

Vertical integration refers to bringing together under single ownership, companies located at different points along a given supply chain. The inputs/outputs of each are thus outputs/inputs of other operations along the chain, but with VI the transactions are internalised within the firm. Quite how the other operations connect with City in this way is is a mystery - unless Radley Rambler was right with his observation about delusional Soccer Moms - maybe that OCU supply players to City? Or maybe t'other way around. What could Fordy be Professor of?

Definition of 'Vertical Integration'



When a company expands its business into areas that are at different points on the same production path, such as when a manufacturer owns its supplier and/or distributor. Vertical integration can help companies reduce costs and improve efficiency by decreasing transportation expenses and reducing turnaround time, among other advantages. However, sometimes it is more effective for a company to rely on the expertise and economies of scale of other vendors rather than be vertically integrated.


That's a lot clearer..... :shock:

Thanks for the offer, but I'll decline on this occasion!
