I never liked Butcher but being an egotistical narcissist is not a bad thing for a leader. Plus he was a "name" and attracted players sometimes on that basis alone. But our scouting team were second to none at that time, Butcher bullied the Board into bigger signing on fees, contracts and wages but when a dictator is challenged then it becomes a personal battle and his "evil" personna took over. As for the current board they are utterly clueless about football. They were brought in to sort out the finances and try to bring the club back to an even keel. Others have sorted out the communication problems and if anyone is changing the football side it is Robbo, abetted by the likes of Messrs Esson, Tokely and Wilson.
