GTH was just a barman at the SOL when he was originally hired by the SAFC catering side wasn't he?
Obviously he's got no business sense or acumen, and his past record has shown this.
Bob Senior knew what he was doing in offloading the businesses to GTH when he did IMHO.
Seems he started out at Nissan - what was his role there?
 
As a punter we’re not that arsed though, they must have made some money as the current two penny pinching owners did mention they wanted them back on.
Probably had the ability to make money, but we fucked up somehow. Always had the feeling it was more an ego for Hutchinson rather than a profitable business move.

I got it direct from someone ITK at the SOL - I can’t remember the exact figures but the profit on those gigs was pitifully small due to his mismanagement.

Heard some other stories illustrating what a dick he was such as getting bladdered at a casino the night before Wembley and leaving his jacket with all the VIP tickets in there. Up at the crack of dawn and luckily the cleaners were there to let him in to retrieve it.

Blagged his way into a position of high authority and responsibility but still acting on like a pissed up teenager.

No, the shame (on him) is that having brought some top acts to the stadium they barely broke even when they should have poured sackfulls of loot into the SAFC coffers.
Christ, hard to believe we failed to make a profit from all those sell out crowds etc -wtf happened there?
 
Has it ever been confirmed that the club made a loss or not much profit on the gigs?

Have heard not great things about him but the gigs must have been good for the city if nothing else.
