I’m confident he has the drive, ambition, talent and accounting experience to take City forward, and will spend almost every waking hour he has available to do so.
As he is charging the company $950 per hour, no wonder he'll spend that time on City. So perhaps City may get sponsorship deals from TAG's round the world marketing tour, but how much of the money raised will ever benefit City, after deduction of expenses?

My newsfeed has brought up the latest Oxford City Press Release (because it has Oxford United in the story).

What is it with this 'safe harbor' thing...yes, useful for covering oneself, but I've not seen it slapped on every PR release by anyone before!

I got an email earlier today with the enclosed url, so I’ve booked up a slot. I don’t imagine it will be as constructive as the 1-2-1’s that Kelvin used to offer supporters but my curiosity has got the better of me...

The email said;

Mr. Guerriero will be in Oxford, UK Monday and Tuesday. He is looking forward to meeting with you in person to discuss exciting news regarding your share position (PARAGON). Take the time to check your schedule and confirm a time for your meeting by clicking the appointment link that you are confident you will be able to attend and be on time, so the meeting isn't rushed.

He is scheduled to the minute during this trip with people flying in to meet with him from all around the world, but he wanted to make sure he had time set aside to meet with you specifically.

He looks forward to meeting you very soon.


I'm honoured and lucky, as I can just use the bus to the Holiday Inn at the Pear Tree roundabout rather than "flying in".

Presumably you'll get on the Park + Ride at Pear Tree and actually meet him at the Randolph?

I wonder if the Oxford Mail have made an appointment?

Don’t hold your breath on a detailed report (if the meeting happens, which I very much doubt as I understand he’s off to Sweden this week) as it may be with a lackey or with Colin Taylor present. And even if it does and is half interesting then I’m happy for anyone to trawl through my internet postings over the last 15 years and point out any breaches of confidence on any 1-2-1 discussions I’ve ever had with Uncle Firoz or Kelvin. *

* = apart from the long running soap that is 'Grenoble Farm'.

Might see you at CPF if you're going, Bob...

Oh, didn't realise they'd want it kept secret, I thought they were full of it! Perhaps you could just let us know if you trust and believe him?!?!

Will look out for you Snake........

If you're ever in Oxford, you can always join me for lunch or breakfast at my Bowls Club - anyone else too!

So who did you get to meet Snake and what secrets have you sworn to keep?
