I blocked this cunt months ago, so thanks for this 🤣 :mad:
Him and his brother are genuine arseholes on Twitter. He thinks he's some kind of sage when he knows absolutely fuck all about football.

He's a brexitwat, Boris schlong sucker and a caricature of a Twitter poster

I'm not sure he's this much of melt irl and Penk, formerly of this parish, seems to know him quite well.

'The fact Shi wasn’t sure which team Phillips was referring to when discussing investment in the squad reaffirms that'

Fuck me, is Jeff serious!?
It's beyond ridiculous isn't it?

I mean, the CEO of a multi million pound club doesn't know which team earns the most money. That's hugely worrying for Fosun.

Sounds exactly like my kind of guy...
Does he like Mrs Brown's Boys and Love Island?

Came off twitter 4 months ago and can safely say I don’t miss one bit.

Depends what you do. Follow people you like, never make that more than 100 and don't look below the fold and it's fine. When it comes to Wolves I choose where I look for discussion...that's not Twitter

For me and my own sanity I’m better off without it, personal choice.

Shi's and Fosuns management of the club has really deteriorated. We had a good set up with Darymple, Thelwell (despite his unpopularity) and then Shi overseeing the commercial side of things. Slowly, Shi appears to have gradually seized all of the power at the club and forced out these other positive influences.

Head banging against the wall the more I see, imagine having a restaurant you’ve got great decor, music playing, nice waiting staff and good marketing but your chefs in the kitchen are bang average. Eventually it’ll collapse, club is losing sight of what is most important and ultimately what the fans care about.
Thing is Jeff go and present your figures and the year ahead projections when the clubs been relegated.
Go and present them when you see the difference between coming 17th as opposed to 7th.
Yep coming in top 6 is totally unrealistic but you still need constant evolving of the first team.
Sadly I think those at the top will learn the hard way.

Sellars still trying to say that loaning Adama Traore to Barcelona was the correct option - he said "you have to remember he wasn't getting in the team here"

Even if that was the case, loaning him with no obligation when you know his contract is going to have 12 months on it when the loan expires is still a stupid move, but it's not the case is it? As I've seen pointed out on Twitter, in the 9 games before he left for Barcelona, he played in all of them, starting 4. Again taking the fans for mugs, making out like he wasn't getting a kick.

That's the MO of the whole leadership group. They say with confidence things that are demonstrably untrue. Vinny, Jeff and Sellars continually insult our intelligence. From the text it looks like Johnny Phillips gave them an easier ride this year aswell.

I thought similar about Johnny Phillips, but I guess we don't know how heavily it's been edited before it's been released.

It's a club puff piece, and there's still plenty of outrageous stuff in there. Imagine what was fucking cut!

Fans know the score and are wise enough to know read between the lines of what’s going on, boardroom guff won’t cut at all.
Again comes back to look after everything football wise the fans will remain happy. Irking the one constant that exist at the club isn’t going to end pretty.

You've more faith than me - Look how many people appeared supportive of the ticket price rises, that Bruno needs time, x years since L1. How many of them parroted FFP lies even after Shi admitted it was bollocks.

There's a large section of the fan base with their fingers in their ears shouting la la la la

I get what Jeff is saying, yes we have a wider catchment area, but realistically a club that is 100% local cannot compete long term with Global super Powers.

Building our Foreign fan base, Building our E sports building everything may well get us to a level of worldwide support that allows us to compete.

Building the brand will take time, it will also make our challenge to the top 6 Sustainable

But that’ll only last so long eventually the majority will turn.

In the football world you have to be entertaining and successful to grow the brand.

Or have something that stands you out from the rest of the competition.

We don't have any of those things at the moment, and unless there is decent investment into the first team, that won't improve.
