The Home team get the first 500 @ £8.54 per subscription and then the away team get £8.54 for every subscription thereafter
So if (as is hardly a ludicrous suggestion given the buildup) we got 20,000 viewers on Saturday, we earned £4,270 (500 x £8.54) and Exeter earned £166,530 (19,500 x £8.54)? You sure?
No. Exeter get all their own fans subscriptions (£8.54) minus the first 500 which go to the home team. Bolton get 100% of their own fans subscriptions (£8.54).

By Away Team, I meant Bolton at Crawley...

What was with the very odd Sharon meeting Mark Noble tweet?

It was certainly strange. The more I think about it the more I think it should just be taken at face value i.e. Mark Noble is pleased we got promoted.

Alan Nixon saying Andrew Gartside is leaving his role (Chief Operating Officer). Interesting.

Iles confirms it. Down to AG wanting more time with family etc. I suspect it’s been a very challenging role for running the business. But does leave us with a gap.

Nixon: Bolton "Trying to get a new chief exec". Asked "Are they looking for a football face or a businessman/woman, with Scott Lindsay heading the football side" he replies that "That was only a short term appointment". Lindsay was appointed Chief Financial Officer in February.

As far as I can see we haven't had a CEO since Emma Beaugeard stepped down in June 2020. Andy Gartside had come in as Chief Operating Officer - not quite as exalted, basically the doer to the CEO's planner - in late 2019. He too has been rumoured since May to be leaving, but he's still listed on the site (as is Lindsay).

Worth noting while we're keeping up that in May we gained our third director, alongside Sharon and Mike James Nick Luckock was appointed to the board of directors of both FVWL Football Limited and FVWL Hotel Limited – somewhat overshadowed at the time by the Kamani/BooHoo tweet/rumour.

Feels like Luckock is another payer rather than a doer; that's not to belittle a man who helped underwrite the takeover, not at all, but it feels like he's a cheque-signer rather than a face about the club. When Beaugeard left it was touted as a Coviddy cost-saving measure, but with no CEO, apparently CFO Lindsay leaving soon and COO Gartside too, there's definitely scope for someone, and it could quietly be one of the most influential signings of the summer.

Yeah I suspect given the hotel and club that it isn’t an easy role to fill. Plenty of football chief execs around but we need someone who can run a more complex business and given one suspects our more frugal approach not the usual CEO with a massive operational team beneath them either.

Interesting that Lindsay is described as a short term appointment as at the time I’m sure it wasn’t pitched that way. The main reason Emma went was for family issues though I think the lack of immediate replacement was down to Covid issues.

Feels like the club and hotel may need operationally splitting to some extent as I feel finding someone to run both as a combined business given one assumes the more commercial focus Sharon will want on hotel side could be a challenge.
