The guy literally spent 15 minutes saying "let me tell you" then didn't actually tell anyone anything!! Jordan hit the nail on the head absolute buffoon. Thank god for Steve Gibson, I'd be worried if I was a Birmingham fan based on that waffle alone.
Brum fans have had it rough for a long time. Current owners are bad, Bassini will be worse. I know Bowyer’s relationship with the current board was bad but I thought he did really well to keep them out of a relegation fight.
BASSINI, Laurence (né BAZINI, Laurence, 1970, Stoke Newington https://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl) Background Between 1993 and 2004, Bassini was a director or secretary of at least 5 companies using his birthname Laurence Bazini, all subsequently dissolved...
This is his history:
Bassini was declared bankrupt in 2007 following the failure of his business The Fox at Ibstone near High Wycombe, which he blamed on his father. During this bankruptcy he changed his name to Bassini to have a “fresh start”.
..................Bassini’s time at Watford was marked by allegations of financial impropriety, culminating in the ‘Safegate’ scandal when just prior to the sale of the club in June 2012 Bassini called the police after an employee refused to hand him the keys to the club safe.
On 29 June 2012, Bassini sold Watford Football Club to Gino Pozzo, son of Giampaolo Pozzo and owner of Udinese and Granada, and in November 2012 it was announced the£1.5 million Bassini owed to Watford Football Club for ‘cash advances’ was unlikely to be repaid. In March 2013 an independent disciplinary commission found Bassini guilty of misconduct and dishonesty over financial dealings on behalf of Watford and banned him from being involved in a position of authority with any Football League club for three years. The commission found he had been “dishonest in his dealings with the league and with his fellow directors” and “practised secrecy and deception” ...........
................ former Watford F.C. directors claimed that they were owed more than £3.5 million by Bassini. He was ordered to pay the sums of £3.5 million and £135,000 (plus an additional £568,000 in interest and £150k in costs); a total of £4,353,000. He was told that he could not appeal. During the trial, in which he was described as ‘evasive’ and a maker of ’empty threats’, the court heard Bassini had made numerous accusations of conspiracies against him without providing any evidence.
In June 2014 Bassini was made bankrupt for the second time. The bankruptcy order was made after Bassini failed to pay the sum of £37,500. During the hearing Bassini claimed not to own any property despite receiving over £1.5 million in cash advances from Watford FC during his tenure.........
I feel for the Brum fans. St Andrew’s can be a tough place to visit, but having spent a few years in the city, the majority of their followers are proper footy fans, unlike the deluded konbs who support Villa.
