    He said "an American-style CEO".

    Interestingly, or just coincidently perhaps, he first says "it could be from locally".

    Yeah, in their 30s, hungry, wanting to make an impression and keen to lead and make decisions.

    Didn’t say American, just American-Style.

    It's basically a term indicating a full service CEO- not a split FD/director of football leadership style; like how GG led the club. Typically found in American sports teams thus not a BS buzzword really.

    Yes...but I don't think he'd give up his million pound+ income to come and run a L1 football club is all I'm saying...

    Knows how to make money.

    But knows that our CEO job would cost him money - we don’t pay that much!

    I'm thinking the same, I've only ever heard she's an absolute loony. Protests against her at Charlton.

    One of the daftest suggestions I’ve ever seen on this board, and that is saying something.
