    Didn't listen to it. Did he set out a timeline for selling the club?

    I'd still like to hear what the Vale's definition of a CEO is. It's all very good calling someone a CEO but does he perform the duties of a CEO?

    After all an owner can step away and allow a club secretary to do the day-to-day things (the role Mr Garlick replaced) but that doesn't make that person the CEO.

    I would say one of the key elements of being a CEO is that you are given overall control of the budget - that is you are given a budget and then allowed to use that budget to appoint the staff you want etc. At the same time you provide the long-term plan for the club - a strategy and plan of action.

    If he isn't doing those things and just being the de facto office team leader then he's surely just club secretary albeit with the title of "CEO".

    If he is wholy in charge of the budget and long-term plans - then why isn't this strategic vision being shared, why isn't he talking to the press? It's not much use having a vision for a football club if you keep it a secret. It's not much use having a CEO if they remain silent.

    Just as an example this is what the Reading CEO did when that club was still in League One - http://www.isportconnect.com/index.p...406&Itemid=485

    p.s. one giveaway - he is listed as "club secretary" on the official website - http://www.port-vale.co.uk/club/whoswho/

    It is utterly ridiculous to say Brown will be the assistant if we do bring a new manager in. That's bound to attract Adkins, JFH, Cotterill et al....NOT.

    I think we can safely say that Brown is the manager and unless we lose the next 2-3 games he's going to be here at least until May. That was my reading of the situation.

    Sounds to me like Mixu was doing some consulting work for Smurf/MB on the team, another set of eyes, a different perspective, what's good what's not so good, what's needed. At the end of the day Smurf and MB take or leave Mixu's view.
