They've already got a plan for Erik to be at the last game of the season? Announcement day?

'Shipping and real estate'?!! I thought he was a clothes manufacturer?

Since he can't ship us anywhere, I'm guessing 'real estate' is his motive then.

He doesn’t say he’s in shipping. He said that he has a clothing business shipping all over the world.

I thought he did well in tonight’s interview.

“Erick will come, probably the last home game of the season,” he said.

“We talk sometimes and he has a lot of plans for Oxford United that we’re going to put together.

“He’s invested money.

“He will be a good asset, a good consultant.

“He always makes good suggestions because he used to run a big club.”

Pick the bones out of that lot then!

I guess that finally puts to bed any significant involvement from Thohir after April 17th? It seems his role will be advisory with minor investment.
The question appeared to be about the playing budget. Erick, if investing, would be more likely to fund stadium development or build. So he could be throwing a lot of money our way without increasing the playing budget.

Fair point. Hope that’s the case.

Well they need to look at that again because it’s the single most important part of the coming summer and based on last summer one of the worst performing parts of the club.
Better in January granted.

Agree.
The interesting other thing will be whether any of the U23s will be considered to be good enough to step up?

If and it’s a huge if, a new stadium comes to fruition then Thohir is there lurking in the background to provide proof of funds for the relevant bodies.

No shiny new stadium and you won’t see Thohir for dust and probably one or two others also.

In the meantime we can only hope that the club’s debt doesn’t significantly increase under Thanakarnjanasuth stewardship.
