    If you choose not to support the Club that is your choice but donít keep on with your negative innuendos and dig at Tan.
    He isnít the only one to ever make a mistake.
    Funny enough the few who can't let it go are the same ones that said nothing when a certain other owner was taking us to the cleaners. Maybe Tan could buy their support with an ice cream

I’m not sure we are in debt by the way. As for Sam he hasnt the means to take us forward, he’s nothing compared to Tan in terms of wealth, all he would do is hand himself a nice 1 million a year salary and we’d immediately be in debt to the tune of how much he borrowed to by us.....
    When we were facing court and winding up orders he was still taking £900k for his services company and even demanded a payment to his brother or cousin when we were close to the brink. Tan is not perfect but other than the red crap we are stable.

    Little aggressive there, Cleve. Are you having a bad weekend, perhaps?

    You say the club has progressed 'immensely' since Tan took control, which effectively happened in 2012. That's your opinion, which is fair enough. So, given that you believe the club has progressed 'immensely' since 2012, in what ways would you say that progress is evident to anyone who is looking for differences between Cardiff City Football Club in 2012 and Cardiff City Football Club in 2021? Can you provide any examples of the immense progress to which you allude?

    It appears that there are those who simply cannot let the Hammam era go and bring it up frequently. The debate here is about the club's progress or otherwise under the stewardship of Vincent Tan, not Sam Hammam. The latter is long gone. The former is the club's current owner.

    Comparing Vincent Tan with Sam Hammam is about as valid as comparing Mick McCarthy with Dave Jones.

    I think Dalman was bullshitting. I dont believe there was a good offer.

    Although only focusing on those 10, who's to say that Mr Tan has not benefited from the pandemic financially?
    Strange. We have had several posters on here telling us we don't have any money and we can't afford this or that, the situation has damaged the businesses he owns etc. So maybe our penniless owner may not be so broke. As I keep saying no one knows

    Perhaps it is quite valid as Dave Jones is long gone, with no mention of a return whatsoever, he hasn’t reared his ugly head over the intervening years suggesting/demanding that the club are still in debt to him, threatening legal action etc. Whereas Hammam, although long gone, is still hovering around like a bad smell with his name thrown into the hat, whether true or not, whenever potential buy outs are mentioned. Dave Jones has moved on and disassociated himself from us completely I’d imagine whereas Sam Hammam certainly hasn’t.

    Been in Premier League twice, finished second in Championship with club record number of points and automatic promotion, own the stadium outright, debt to equity conversion, charitable trust/foundation created supporting local communities with millions of pounds of Tans money, training ground facilities vastly improved, academy creation, etc etc. Is that enough ?

    How can you forget the two glorious seasons in the sun??
