This still doesn't make sense to me.
The Raos appointed Shebby to counter balance the power being exhuded over the club by "the Kean side" seemingly because they are not the real owners of the club or not the full owners.
But what power has Kean actually had? He has been kept as manager, but was not allowed to buy players last season and reportedly couldn't even form his own team policy.
SEM have been completely marginalized from transfer activity as well since the first window which they were involved in. Involvement that has not been covered up, but stated in public by both the Raos and Jerome Anderson.
It was not altogether shocking either because agent involvement is a fact of life in modern football and it's obvious clubs are heavily reliant on them to get anything done, especially ones with foreign ownership who need all the help they can get.
So Kamy you say there is no documented evidence, but plenty of information. But what is this information? Where has it come from? How reliable is it?
So far the only documented evidence we have is that people in the highest positions at Rovers have no idea what's going on. Paul Hunt showed that he was completely in the dark about many things, but just as significantly that he was concerned about people at the club spreading rumours and misinformation about the owners and wanted the power to sack them.
All I can deduce from that is that people at the club, in the absence of any real information, have made suppositions about the goings on and spread these to the wider public. Suppositions that may or may not be correct.
So I fail to see what our supposed true overlords stand to gain currently when they are marginalized from transfer activity and far from selling assets we seem to now be building a team strong enough to compete for promotion this season.
Far from staying ignorant or stubborn, people at the club have been publically admitting "we ###### up, we know the fans are angry, we want to try and fix this". What for? I kept hearing about how they just want to sell assets, take the parachute payments and run. Yet it seems they are instead reinvesting that money into the squad.
I must admit that I look forward to something sinister being proven by the FA or Premier League because it will definitely be mind blowing. Having read what has gone on at other clubs like Cardiff and Bolton recently, I do hope it opens a window to greater scrutiny of club owners by the various governing bodies, as that can only be a good thing.
