I guess you haven't read back or listened to Radio 5 Live a short while ago  Wink

The Wiltshire Pirlo will be STFC's CSO - Chief Sustainability Officer

Actually quite an interesting conversation https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m001hnjk (18.25 in) not sure where the rumour he is investing has come from, but good stuff he is involved all the same.

Aye, I listened to it last night  Smiley I think when Doughty first put his Instagram post up he was going to announce it today so left an open teaser. That led to speculation that he may be investing, (in some capacity) but then an hour later he was on 5Live with Colin Murray and explained the news he had.

Yep, it's good to see him involved. I wonder what the agreement is though?! Are the club paying Doughty a fee to be CSO or is Doughty "investing" so to speak? Since he does own a footwear business, it could be that some of his Hylo stuff starts appearing. It would be a good ice breaker (no pun intended) when discussing climate change and other responsible collective actions so he can show what his products are doing in helping to play a part in that.

Although these are interesting for different reasons;

Dated April 2021 so things may have improved since then...

I'm hazarding a guess we've got at least one more year left on the Puma deal but you'd think after that there is a strong chance Hylo are the kit makers, even if that isn't currently the plan in place.

Would be good to have a unique manufacturer.

They appear to be the first-team travel wear partner for next season so maybe some tracksuits and stuff in the club shop?

Do they make anything beyond bloody expensive trainers (having not bought trainers for over 10 years 140 a pop may be the going rate now?)

I suppose that will be a part of each stands development. Was the intended order Bank, TE, Arkells, DRS?

Thinking about it, its a bit odd that the majority of newish stadia are not covered in solar panels.

Yeah, it is odd. Theyd probably produce enough to power the floodlights for a season.

and our coach.

on the face of it it's a nice thing to do. but there are one of two red flags

anyway, been round the blocks on this one...

one thing I've not seen. Mr Hart is now listed as performance director. Is he now employed by the club, or is it a non exec unpaid position (i.e. he's contacted in as consultant)

good question- im sure it was sold as he was 'helping out a bit' with the strength and conditioning side when previously raised.

possibly wont find out the  full truth, a bit like Zavs fit and proper test results.... still no doubt another important question similar to taking the knee will find its way through to this months AB.
