Exact same set of circumstances, whats Elstone e got to do with it all of a sudden ? The examples that I have given are all of foreign owners not resident in Liverpool which you seem to erroneously feel is a problem, repeat, exact same circumstances, end of.
As I said, different clubs and different circumstances.
It's not an issue if you have a united board, a clear strategy, quality appointments in key footballing positions and success on the pitch. The examples you give above tick all them boxes so the owners could be sat on the moon and things would tick along nicely.
There are more and more stories coming out of boardroom divisions, Kenwright and Elstone on the way out, a 'noxious' atmosphere at the club and disharmony among most of the football staff. All feeding into what we see on the pitch.
Something is allowing a vacuum to develop at the club and if the Chief Exec, who is based in Liverpool, is no longer calling the shots and is on his way out then that will filter down, as Paul Joyce's article highlights. Kenwright and Elstone worked well even though they were based three hours away from each other as they had stability. You need some form of genuine authority figure based at the club and until we get a new Chief Exec (if he is going) then we're going to suffer from the decision makers being based in London.
