    No doubt a lot of clubs also wish they had a owner like Tan also. So many owners especially in the championship seems to promise the world and give nothing and them do a runner and leave worse off.

    I guess that's the problem with football, the grass always seems to look greener.
    Fans forget how badly our club was run under Hammam . Ridders etc and although Tan is not the perfect owner but he's far better than those leaches.
    I'd love Cardiff to be run like Leicester but they are more or less a one off.

    Did they even get a points deduction when they pulled the admin card.?
    They did get a major financial boost by dumping £millions of liabilities when they went into Administration and with no football authority penalties.

    Ridsdale is a bit unfairly judged by many in my opinion.

    he was always s bit of a figure of fun but I think he did an excellent job here.

    he was never the owner, only a chairman, and had to deal with Sam Hammam for all of his time here.
    he managed the club through some tricky periods with regards to debt / HMRC etc. Got the stadium built from the starting point of a Sam Hammam crayon drawing and found foreign investment to secure the long term future of the club (it should have done more than that)
    he's a bit of an unsung hero in some ways

    Seems to me that several posters have short and selective memories - not to mention their agendas.

    How could we have forgotten this memorable example of Vincent becoming a veritable pillar of the local community -

    This post just proves what I had thought all along. You sit hiding behind your keyboard on the other side of the Atlantic, thinking you are important, entitled to say what you like and the font of all knowledge about Cardiff City. Actually you are just a foul mouthed, insignificant, nobody who is probably not even a fan of the club. You are not the only one on this board unfortunately who does this but luckily the actual twenty odd thousand real fans who don't post on this board do appreciate what Tan, Dalman and Choo have done for the club and are very grateful.

    They didnít and got away with it, but points deduction was soon brought in to avoid any Club doing the same.

    Usually the ones who are vocal against Tan are the ones who were in bed with a previous owner and were very quiet when he was doing us over.. Tan isn't the best we could have but he's far from the worse

    Re: Leicester City management compared to City and Vincent Tan

    From: New Straits Times

    KUALA LUMPUR: Berjaya Corporation Bhd founder and executive chairman Tan Sri Vincent Tan has announced that he will give half of his wealth to charity when he is no longer around, whilst appealing to more wealthy Malaysians who have passed 70 years old to do the same.

    The billionaire said doing so would help the underprivileged to own affordable homes as housing is a basic need of human beings and essential for a person's sense of dignity, safety, and inclusion.



    I'm really proud that we have an owner that thinks like this. Do I like the decisions that have been made since our last promotion? No. But feck me it's only football at the end of the day and the stuff quoted is far more important.

    It proves nothing. It's not even anything I haven't said before. And as I'm anonymous, (which you are too by the way) how can you have any knowledge of whether I'm an insignificant nobody? Or whether I support Cardiff City? Do you think you have any significance in my life? Do you think I hold you or anything you post on here in high esteem?

    I AM a fan of the club. And I AM entitled to say what I like. As is everyone who cares to post here.

    Don't you at least think that Tan has wasted a lot of money?

    The title of this thread is "Leicester City management compared to City and Vincent Tan". I gave an honest opinion. So what have you got?

    100% with you on that.
    The mess that Ridsdale walked into here was not of his own doing.
    You have say that he got the job done and kept us afloat and kept the wolf from the door whilst being able to still be competitive on the pitch.
    Fronted the stadium development stadium and delivered it when the council couldnít deal with Hammam anymore.

    Yea he probably got paid handsomely but he left us in a better position than he found us.

    Tony clemo always gets a bad review of his running of the club but we never went into administration or liquidation not like those down west and I am proud of that.
    We were averaging less than 3000 and the Welsh media hated us and very few people would sponsor football it mostly went to the egg.
    Cardiff City survived but Tony's business went bust.
    I probably didn't say it back then but thank you Tony.

    Great point about us not going into administration.
    Too many have done it, taken the easy way out and then prospered.

    Re: Leicester City management compared to City and Vincent Tan

    Given the number of clubs that have gone into administration and the widely publicised financial woes that we’ve endured it’s amazing really how we haven’t succumbed to it. No doubt we’ve sailed close to the wind on many occasion but I s’pose some credit is due to all concerned at the top for avoiding administration or, even worse, liquidation.
