City Team Photo Released

The official club website is running the annual team photo on its front page right now.

Interestingly, Thaksin Shinawatra is right smack in the middle of the picture, front row, next to Sven, wearing a crisp blue tie.

Long time City fans can correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t recall John Wardle, David Bernstein, or other previous chairmen getting themselves in the club photo. (Of course, they didn’t own the club outright, either.)

In any case, an interesting change of protocol that seems to make it clear that Thaksin doesn’t intend to be a stay-out-of-the-limelight chairman.

Update. This topic was brought up over at the Blue Moon message board, and someone has duly produced a team photo from 1996-97 with former chairman and City legend Franny Lee in the photo, next to manager Alan Ball.

    It is extremely bizarre that an ex-head of government from Thailand is now chairman of a British football club.

    Thaksin adopted an extremely violent “populist hands on” approach to the amphetamine drugs trade and the Muslim situation in the South. Neither policy paid any dividends, just made things worse.

    PS…the link to the Manchester Evening News needs fixing.
