Saints appoint a new CEO. Interesting choice.

Hopefully he can push thru the project to get the stadium finished and he can sort out the maintenance budget for the pitch.

The rise of Mike Rush through the club structure should serve him well. Any skeletons in closets must be known.

Is he qualified to do this? Honest question.

Head of Youth Development, Head Coach and CEO do sound like very different roles.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

You could ask that same question of the CEO of more than a handful of SL clubs.

A good business starts at the top, is he qualified? cannot say. He knows the company and its business through and through. If he has the right management team around him, then he has every reason to be successful.

Yes but Hetherington is obviously a very enterprising guy who definitely has a business head. Not sure that applies to Rush.

This is, if I may say, a conversation in something of a vacuum. Given mcManus' business acumen and hands on style, the role may be a limited one that Rush is perfectly suited to. Since McManus took over, Saints have struck me as a well run club generally (though others may disagree on the basis of the last couple of years).

The problem is that CEO should be the most important appointment at a club.

 

I have no idea whether Rush has any business credentials, but the CEO role should not be a limited role. Call it something else if that is the case.
