What a strange post...


Why is it strange? There's negativity around the Chinese owners. I'm replying to someone who said this and giving reasons why I think that this negativity will never go away.


Except you have compared two different things. We have Chinese owners, they employ the likes of Nigel Howe to do the managing. Just because your middle manager Chinese bosses were a bit clueless (and I suspect we could all cite examples of rubbish English bosses) doesn’t mean successful Chinese entrepreneurs will be equally rubbish.
As for negativity around the owners, surely that is history now and there is a pretty positive view of them these days. I doubt any of it was based on what middle management is like in China and was actually more about English bias and perception and a desire for anyowner just to spend huge sums of money.


So you don't want to listen to what I've got to say. That's fine, doesn't bother me one way or the other.

So you don’t want anyone to comment on what you say ?
It’s a discussion board, not your personal blog and it seems fair enough for people to comment on anything posted on here.
Sorry if you thought you could just issue statements and everyone would nod and agree !
It’s not even as if I said you were wrong !
Presumably the skin gets thinner once you’ve endured the horrors of life in China....

Whore Jackie There's going to be two domes as far as I can tell. One at The Forest, which I suspect will be the more public-friendly, community based. And probably a bit of sweetener for the school, for looking after their Academy kids. Planning was granted some time ago, but it's taking forever to get going.

The other one is going to be at Bearwood, to the far south of the site. On the last plan I saw, it was going next to the beautiful walled garden, which they're busy restoring. They're going to try and blend it in with the other original surrounding buildings, so it's going to look more like a wooden barn, rather than an inflatable igloo.


Great research and thank you. This is excellent news and much needed facility to such a site and totally on a par with other category one clubs.
