Tapapa Posted December 21, 2008 Report Share Posted December 21, 2008 Litt mer om det som angivelig har foregått i styret. Bracewell-Smith did not name anybody when she delivered a scathing account of her “appalling” treatment by the board but it is understood that her ire was directed mainly at Danny Fiszman, the influential director who is said by insiders to unofficially “run the club” from his home in Geneva. Fiszman and Bracewell-Smith had conducted a running war of words for six to eight months. She was annoyed at the absence of any real debate at board level, how much power Fiszman exerted and the hold he had over the septuagenarian Old Etonian directors. Bracewell-Smith also disagreed strongly with the appointment last month of Ivan Gazidis as chief executive (despite being part of the four-member committee involved in interviewing candidates) and felt her voice wasn’t being heard on other corporate matters. According to sources, Fiszman felt that Bracewell-Smith - who was appointed to the board when agreement was needed to vote through motions to build the stadium - had “served her purpose”. http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/sport/foo...icle5375438.ece Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
