Driesen still has a say in recruitment

The notes from last night's Fans' Forum have been published online: Contracts update

There have been no new developments on the takeover, although Roland is not prepared to reduce the asking price which makes it unlikely that there will be any bids. Contrary to press reports, no £35m offer was received.

Contract negotiations have started with Lee Bowyer and Johnnie Jackson and it would seem that the intention is to extend them, welcome news.

Perhaps the most surprising news was that Thomas Driesen, he of the late night sessions on his laptop with a pizza and coke, is still acting as an adviser to Roland and scrutinises all incoming players. Part of Steve Gallen's role is to 'sell' players to Driesen.
