Im a little surprised Omar Berrada‘s reputation appears untainted by the unresolved City case (115).

It’s like hiring the best executive from Enron (pre Bankruptcy) with the hopes of replicating their “success”. I do hope I’m wrong.
It will be interesting to see the verdict but it depends on his role there for the specific years under investigation. In truth, the only people I think any authority will go after will be those in emails as there's not way they can deny being aware they were cheating, everyone else can likely deny they actually knew what was happening, so Simon Pearce, Andrew Widdowson, Peter Baumgartner and a load of UAE guys who will be untouchable. Assume Cook as well was in the know until he was forced to resign.

‘Don’t dwell on the bad moments’ - he clearly is not a seasoned poster on the RedCafe.net
Yes - maybe we need a little sub department for the three posters here who are forever optimistic and sunny; DDOTBM. Didottbum to regulars.

So, whats his impact so far?
In everything really. He was the first guy in, so Ineos wouldn't have made any move without his input for sure.

Ineos have moved very systematically in everything. Remove the bottlenecks of gardening leave they have moved in a top down manner very well.

Hope he's getting a good long sleep ahead of tonight. At 00:01, I fully expect him to be turning Man United into England's best team again.

It's annoying how we've not been able to have this guy advising us until now.
I've liked the moves we've been making so far, I hope he doesn't just come in and throw out all the dealings we've been progressing with, for his own targets.
White text and all that

Working on a Saturday, that's rough.
I'm concerned by this. If he's going to be in the office on Saturdays then that means he won't be attending matches. Why did we hire someone who isn't going to attend the matches, and clearly hates us?!

Let's hope he's at least as good as Woody was at the commercial side of things while being much better at the football side of things.

not only that but this seems like an INEOS sweatshop approach at running the club - forcing CEOs to work on weekends, players to play? on weekends, where does it end

He will cover for Keir Starmer on Fridays and will get him to attend to games on Saturdays.

I'm happy to discuss rates in PMs if you need any professional Photoshop work done, but I warn you I'm incredibly expensive.
