Board Overview:

“To summarise, the board are delighted with the leadership qualities you are demonstrating. Your capture of John Giudetti, who the fans believe to be an extremely good player, has been particularly pleasing. However, your decision to let Piscu leave the club is regarded by the fans to be a poor piece of business (image).”
