If you want to succeed in business, then it pays to have a high degree of prescience.
In the aftermath of the court hearing in July 2018, it seemed that the Sevco High Command had no room for manoeuvre.
That was certainly the opinion of the officer corps at Shirebrook.
There was a consensus in the Sports Direct war room that total victory had been achieved at the High Court in London.

I’m told that no one in Shirebrook could believe that the Sevco High Command had set up this online car boot sale to shift the new Hummell gear, especially after the Mr Justice Phillips had told them to get sensible last July.
