Title: Jim Rodwell in Notts County takeover?

Jim Rodwell is the new Chief Executive of Notts County.  He's been the spokesman for the takeover today, which is being led by former Lincoln City Chairman and Lincolnshire-based businessman Ray Trew.  Could we see Sven Goran Eriksson leaving and good old Stevie Evans on his way in?  Had to laugh about the due dilligence bit.

Those poor Notts County fans, first they had all the problems with the takeover at the start of the season and now the possibility of Rob-well taking over and maybe giving the keys to safe to McFraud!! One of the County fans must REALLY have upset someone!  :(

Earlier this evening I was tuned into Matchtalk the BBC Radio Nottingham football show. As it was discussing the latest in the Notts County saga it was unfortunate that I had just taken a swig of tea as it announced the new Chief Exe as Jamie Rodwell. Luckily I was stood over the sink so the resultant spray effect didn't do too much damage. Jamie went on to talk about sustainability, he'd previously been involved in football (Didn't mention too many details about his time at Boston :D). Last I heard he was selling air conditioning units in France! Now he's the Chief Executive of Notts County! It's a funny old game,Saint. Still he did finish third in Britain's Brainiest Footballers so he's got more knowledge about football than the last clown running Notts, Peter Trembling .

I'm still in a state of shock that he has somehow managed to talk his way back into football. Surely someone in the Notts County takeover team was involved in football at the time our pathetic gravy train rolled into Meadow lane with our big time charlie players and incompetant backroom staff?

It makes me wander where the actual power lies or more specifically how much Rodwell has? As a CEO you'd expect him to pretty much have carte blanche, I suppose it depends how much Ray Trew wants to get involved in the daily running of the club. If he has I wouldn't be surprised to see Ev*ns/Raynor and/or Sotnick involved in some way. I pity the County fans and there's only 1 way this is going (although on the plus side if they don't f*ck County totally we may have a Conf North derby against them in a year or 2).

Welcome Granthampie

To tell all that happened would need a night to write it.

Players unpaid for half the season,
Unpaid rent
Unpaid bills.
Funny public limited companies that all ran from the same address.
Loans shunted backwards and forwards then hidden under the carpete.
Out standing debts at one point this was to over 27 different places including other clubs.
1.1mil in tax someone forgot to pay.

Was part of the party that decidded to put the clubs life in the melting pot bassed on planning permission with no buisness paper work.And when it got turned down Somehow him and his cronnies managed to stop everythink.

Missing gate money.
Missing receipts.
but his pockets was getting lined nicely.

Add to that wanting to move Boston town fc just so they could slap some houses on there ground.


+pluse many many other things but i think you get the pitcher that with this guy about there is always a good possibility your club will get screwed big time

They weren't all that bad. OOOOps, sorry, forgot to take my medication for rose tinted glasses syndrome. Now for the straight jacket and I'll probably wake up in the shower.
Seriously though, I think the question Notts County fans should ask is "What has our club got that is of value to some people with very dubious (questionable to some others) credentials".
Is the ground worth more with other developments on it ?
Could the club be better used as a money washing facility ?
What could the real motivations for such a takeover be ?
It will be interesting to see if there are any telling new staff appointments.
Maybe we have them wrong and they have good intentions to revive the club, time will tell. Must go, the white van is here.

To be fair to Robwell, he was merely a puppet for the clowns behind him that were raping the football community and the local community for all they could get.  However it may well have been his signature that signed the club into a cva that made no reference to the football club or Boston town staying in existance which would have wiped both senior clubs out of the town if completed.  Not to be trusted as his friends are very dangerous people.

I, like most other supporters, was very disillusioned with the way that Jim Rodwell ran our club to the ground during its final season in the Football League - almost to the point of driving us out of business.

As we feared the worst during that summer of 2007, I started to contemplate what I would do with my Saturday afternoons if Boston United ceased to exist. Being a football supporter I decided that I'd have to find another club. At that point the thought of following Notts County did actually cross my mind. For me, Meadow Lane is a relatively easy run, parking is straight forward and I was used to League Two prices. But with players like Alan White, Austin McCann, Lawrie Dudfield, Gary Silk, Lee Canoville and Jason Lee in the Notts squad at that time, the biggest selling factor would have been the fact that it wouldn't have felt like I was supporting a totally new team.

If Boston had ceased to exist during that summer, my opinion of Jim Rodwell would have been even lower than it is now. And if I had become an adopted Notts supporter, how exactly would I be feeling right now? I could not personally line Rodwell's pockets again, so would now be looking in protest for a third different club to support in the space of four years!

At this point I think we should all say (again) a massive and sincere thank you to Mssrs Blackwell, Pierpoint, Newton, Kempster and Cook for everything that they have done for the club during that summer and since. We will always be grateful.

Richard, you missed out Chalker...... ;)

Echo what you say 100% though.

I was contemplating ground hopping if the worst had come to pass, as it is I'm brassic at the moment so that would have been on the back burner too! Hopefully I can get back on my feet in the next 18 months or so and start going away again....mind you a season ticket is my first priority!

Looking at the pictures Ken took yesterday it looks like the support is back to those who used to travel in the 90's before McFraud rolled up plus a few young un's......I wonder where all those ever so loyal, shout the loudest so they must be great fans got to, because I've not seen any at York St or in any away pictures for a good few years now.

It was interesting to hear the interview which the new Notts County supremo Ray Trew on last night's BBC "Late Kick Off" programme (Midlands area). For anyone whose interested in watching it, it's available for the time being via BBC i-Player:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00qcpcv

The interviewer asks Mr Trew about his choice of Chief Executive, and his reply states categorically that Jim Rodwell was not to blame for the demise of Boston United.

If this is the case, then I can only deduce that Mr Trew blames Boston's problems entirely on Steve Evans. And if he is (ahem) true to his word, then surely he can't look to appoint Evans as Notts County manager at any stage in the future?

Watch this space.....

Speaking to the Press today Evans said: "I had a long conversation With (Notts' chief executive) Jim Rodwell on Sunday and he was looking for someone to take over until the summer.

"I said I wanted to stay here and said put someone else in charge and if you are still interested in the summer come back and we'll talk about it."

What kind of spineless people are in charge at Crawley?

Managers have been sacked by their clubs this season for trying to engineer a move to another club and yet Evans comes out and brags about it.
"brags about it"that doesnt even come close to what he and his buddys did at boston and still walked when he was ready.in the real world scum like evans and his lowly brother an rodwell shouldnt be a topic on a football forum cos they shouldnt have anything to do with it.

SE has revealed to the Crawley News that he turned down Notts County to complete the job at Crawley.

Is "complete the job" Evans speak for bankrupting the club?  ;)

"Give me 6 months to get me families money and any other I can out of the club, and to prepare which players I'm taking with me or which I'm leaving on stupid contracts ......then I'll be with you Jim."

Evans makes the Guardian's Digger column again....when does this 'what goes around comes around' thing  kick in? I want to see him fall on his arse not feature in broadsheets.

When Digger asked Notts County about Steve Evans's claim that he had been offered the manager's job by the chief executive, Jim Rodwell, the club's new owner Ray Trew sought swiftly to distance his club from Evans, who was given a suspended jail sentence for tax fraud relating to secret playing contracts at Boston United. Rodwell and Evans are old chums after a partnership as director of football and manager, respectively, at the Lincolnshire club. "Whilst Mr Evans continues to maintain contact with the chief executive, who is a personal friend, their conversations have not involved any talk of offering Mr Evans a position here at Notts County."

Well, somebody is a little liar then because the special one, as he likes to be known now, is telling all and sundry a completely different tale.

Dear Jimbo',

Just in case you or your wackos are watching and if you're still up to finishing the little episode in the White Hart hotel in Lincoln after the CVA rubbish and while you still seem to relish the business model of taking the gate receipts and sod the creditors, I've come out of retirement.  I've got plenty of time, loads of cash and a few thugs (drug running, shooters, all that Eastend carry on).

I'm just waiting for the Scotsman to join you.  And Gee, you're still a big girl's blouse. How's Charlie? 

Lots of love etc xxx
