    Goathair To Join Nice

    According to french media reports , expected to take the job on February 1st .

    No point putting a link up because it's in french but apparently that's the word around the camp fire .

    Couldn't give a feck myself who is CEO just as long as we are successful on the field .

    Why would that benefit them to potentially put us in transfer/contract uncertainty AGAIN! If the owners see both clubs as ‘sisters’ then they surely wouldn’t put one at risk and would have a plan to carry on as business as usual. If not then that is really bad business control.

    Don't worry they'll have someone in frame unlike giving stendel some cash to strengthen squad

    This is the translation


    The succession of Jean-Pierre Rivčre will not have taken much time to take shape. On Friday, the president of the OGC Nice announced his departure in the coming weeks (if not months if necessary) along with his general manager Julien Fournier because of divergences that became too important with the majority shareholders of the club. According to So Foot, his successor will be Gauthier Ganaye. A track confirmed by L'Equipe this Saturday night after the victory of Aiglons against Bordeaux in the league (1-0). The 31-year-old Frenchman, who has worked for RC Lens in the last few years, has been president of Barnsley in England's third division since October 2017. At the time of his inauguration, he became the first French president club in England.

    If he's the only other departure this month I'll take that all day long .

    Keyboard tappers and corporate types don't really bother me .

    The games played out on the field , mud , sweat and the glory out there is what I pay my money for .

    Make too bigger a deal about the Goathair types in my opinion .

    He's well down the list of my personal priorities at Oakwell .

    Couldn't give a shyte .

    Got to say I find him to be one of the nicest bullhitters we've had down there.
    Got both fans and media eating out of his hands with some classy propaganda stunts and showed a bit of class too with letters to fans. I'd miss him but not as much as I would Cam McGeehan or Mama Thiam or Cauly flower Woodrow Wilson...etc

    Interesting posts on BBS as to why there is a vacancy at OGC Nice for Chien to install his "Yes" man there.

    I am in a period of considering an appropriate reflection on the matter.

    Now the news is public expect a classic PR (Pillakin Release) from Goat abart how wonderful it has been at Barnsley and how sad he will be to leave.
    The reality is the situation at OGC Nice has imploded as the previous owner with a now 20% stake and the leaving CEO have had the last straw put on their backs in a long protest over how Chien is running the club. Chien is desperate to put a "Yes" man in there to quell the unrest and Goat fits the bill as a "Pillaker Supreme". Interesting times ahead.

    The fact he's going doesn't bother me , he's not the first CEO to jump ship and he won't be the last .

    What does bother me is the fact that our club is getting used to sort OGC Nice's problem out .

    I'm not comfortable with this at all and I don't like the way it's played out , Nice have some internal issues so let's to take the CEO from our other club to fix it .

    It sort of tells you that we are the lesser light when in fact both clubs should co exist equally in my opinion .

    There's a feeder club mentality here and you have to wonder what other OGC Nice problems we will be expected to fix in the future .

    Perhaps they could loan Woodrow to Nice to stave off relegation now we are safe from the drop?
    Nobody should be allowed to own more than one club even if they're in different leagues full stop.

    I think it's the fact that they know Goat is willing to do their bidding in respect of "sustainability" without rocking the boat and it reads like the CEO at Nice had had enough of continued sales of their best players and lack of investment. Goat will do nicely out of the move financially and make a profit on the deal.

    Favourite to take over from Goat is one of Chien's Chinese finance people in the USA, somebody called Pi Lak In.

    It makes me wonder again WHY they bought this club when obviously they DIDN'T care about keeping us in the championship or progressing further.If we get promoted this season what's the betting there's another fire sale in the summer ? and WHY don't they tell us exactly what their intentions are WHY the secrecy its putting a big bad cloud over Oakwell

    What's interesting is that Jean - Pierre Rivere was a solid Nice man and clearly wanted to see more investment coming in to the club .

    From what I gather OGC Nice are Ł30m in profit on transfer dealings , whether that's a solid fact I don't know but that's what I've read .

    Very true unsettling situation given our model but we can only wait and see what occurs for us in due course .

    It would be the courteous thing to do as I continue to follow OGC Nice's progress. I wonder if Goat ezza sell-on clause if he goes to PSG ?
