Andrea Radrizzani, Victor Orta, and Angus Kinnear answered (pre-selected) questions from fans yesterday.

And as much as I was disappointed to not see any answers about the links to Qatar and Aspire Academy, or the lack of a live Q&A, given the previous regime’s attempts at these kinds of things, or what happened in Crewe where journalists who printed negative, although true things about the club, were forbidden from attending the meeting between their chairman and the fans, it is good to see the club even attempting some transparency. It wasn’t perfect, but it’s better than the alternative.

Still think they should have talked about Qatar.

On to the links.
