No, unfortunately you''re probably not alone.But Ed Balls chairs board meetings, and likely has very, very little to do with the daily running of the club.

Except for when he did, and got his 90k payment.

There is no dividing line for when things started to go wrong (if that is what you think is happening). For some of you, everything the club does is a mistake and is always in the wrong.  To coin a popular phrase on here, everything that happens which doesn''t give us instant success is just another stick to beat the club with.

I''m not sure how much Balls effects things, but I''m fairly certain the amount of stuff he continue to keep diong outside the club, be it Strictly, Loose Women etc., hasn''t exactly put the club as his main focus.

Therefore - does he deserve the role? Is he partly to blame for our messy season and general club management?

How much does a chairman actually affect the decision making in the club?

I certainly felt more at home with McNally and Bowkett on board.

The suggestion that Balls has very little to do with the day to day running of the club makes me wonder why he received £90K if that is the case.

Ed''s doing a most excellent job.......Just let him get on with the task in hand. He certainly doesn''t need all these distractions and needs to remain steadfast to focus on the problems associated with multi-tasking the role of NCFC Chairman......He sez.......

If as stated Stone was acting CEO and Balls stepped into the role to recruit Moxey and to quote Balls" reluctantly accepted the 90K for this work". Should he now, in view of our financial position, and the outcome of his work, reluctantly pay it back!

No I don''t suppose you would.

Then logic is not your strongest point.

It wasn''t wages, he is not paid a wage, he is not an employee.

It was a "bonus" for the work that has proven "faulty".

So as chairman of the company and I was paid a bonus for what proved a big mistake, then yes I would expect to pay some or all of it back.

Yes, it was wages for long hours he put in, doing work for the club.Is that what happens in business then, people pay bonuses back?I put it to you, that you are talking nonsense.

I am not going to get into an argument with a serial arguer.

You have no idea what you are talking about and NO it was not wages.

Thanks for your point of view and a good and happy posting day to you.

Ok cards on the table, not politically motivated, just don''t like him.

He is a serial buffoon, labours BJ who to be honest I find more amusing due to his unpredictability.

Pompous red faced t.at that I would prefer wasn''t sitting on our board. :)

So yes it would suit my agenda if we could pin all the blame on him and get rid, so it''s all edd''s fault!, nice and tidy and let''s move on;)
