I understand that there was a fair and free exchange of views at the most recent conclave of the Sevco High Command.
The meeting took place on Thursday and Mr David Cunningham King was in telephonic attendance.
At one point the issue of the Chairman’s recent windfall from a sale of shares in one of his companies was discussed.
This led a senior employee to question the South African based entrepreneur about his intentions apropos the cash-strapped Hold Company Vehicle.
I understand that this challenge from a non-board member was not entirely appreciated by the Chairman.
The Chairman hit back at the senior employee by saying that if there were any cash flow issues then that was within his job description.
The riposte from the senior employee was that he didn’t have the necessary authority within the structures to implement the changes that he saw were needed.
The mood of the conclave was set when the same senior employee raised the issue of the most recent loan target for Sevco.
The costs of bringing in Jon-Miquel Toral was questioned.
Apparently even meeting the wunderkind’s living expenses would be a challenge let alone a portion of his salary.
The good sense of spending money on a PR agency when other bills are outstanding was also questioned by the senior employee.
No doubt dear reader you will have noticed that the remuneration package of Mr Stewart Robertson has emerged into the mainstream media.
My own feeling was a decent man being involuntarily propelled under a road going public conveyance.
For the avoidance of doubt, in my opinion, he has earned that bonus and then some.
Mr Robertson was the point man in the negotiations on renting Hampden.
Sources inform me that he presented an excellent case to the folk in Mount Florida.
Had he been given full authority then I believe that the costs base would have been lower by now.
On other matters the High Command a frantically trying to reach out to General Ashely.
They are desperate to reach a rapprochement with the Sports Direct magnate.
The good people at Glasgow City Council still have not received answers to their questions apropos the stadium.
The local authority is very stressed that their questions have not been answered by the Holding Company Vehicle.
Moreover, they know that a certain journalist in Ireland hasn’t gone away you know.
