    Agree. Its the same people who never wanted him here in the first place. They keep repeating that he hasn't done anything for us, when actually he has presided over a 10 year period of unprecedented success. If he did go, we would be right up shit creek without a paddle.

    Go through the list of managers he has picked and tell me which ones were good or bad.

    Take the two promotions out of the equation, which were followed up by instant relegation, and it has been almost one way traffic on a downward spiral.

    If by best owner he pays money out of his own pocket then yes he has.

    This owner has got us on the brink of our lowest league placing in 18 years.

    I know you love your league positions.

    Nobody has called for him to go, no.

    What they have asked is that he stops pi$$ing his money up the wall by employing people to run the club that aren't qualified.

    No it isn’t, he can’t pick a decent CEO or manager, we are like the graveyard of managers, do any go into anything after us? OGS exception but I don’t think he has long left.

    This is just pure unadulterated rubbish. Right on cue you turn up like a bad penny, obviously recognising my description of people like you. No surprise that you have been sticking your nose into so many threads in the last few weeks, revelling in City's misfortune. Thats all you are getting off me, as I no longer communicate with morons.

    I'm always here.

    It is you that has disappeared for long periods. Mainly because your prediction that we will be just fine has gone to **** and you made yourself look a prize plank with the whole Madine loan fee nonsense.

    List the managers, you'll be surprised the utter crap that we have employed.

    Granted he has put some poor choices with key personnel - but he keeps on putting the money in.
    (Letís not reopen the Rebrand issue either).

    Almost certainly - unless there is another regime out there with a sickening human rights record that wants to perfume their reputation by buying a European football club via their Sovereign Wealth Fund?

    But to be fair there have not been many calls for Tan to walk away from the club (with his cheque book). There have been plenty of calls for Dalman and Choo to go - mainly over manager selection and contracts, partly over poor club communication, and a lot over recruitment decisions that stem from 2-3 years ago.

    I haven't heard anyone claim recently that Tan is picking the team.

    Tan may have gone very quiet in the past few years but he is still funding the club and I believe the accounts that he gets up in the middle of the night to watch every match and is in regular contact with Damlan/Choo and less regular contact with the manager.

    We are in trouble at the moment - but I don't have any arguments with a change of strategy (unannounced) to bring through players from the Academy and reduce the wage bill. That said, I did expect Tomlin. Murphy and Wintle to be options this season - without them (and this may be partly his own fault) Mick had a harder job on his hands.

    I would say anyone who is mildly intelligent and knows a little bit about football do not want him to go.
    A lot worse owners out there.

    He needs to choose his advisers wiser and get people in who are football men.

    I think it's a question of trust.
    He probably feels he has been burnt a couple of times so I kind of get why he hasn't done thus far.

    I really do hope he has been active in recent times to put that right.
    I ain't holding my breath though.

    Tan doesn't need to go, he just needs to appoint someone to run his club (and spend his money) who knows what they're doing.

    Let’s see how he likes league 1 football and the value of his club when it’s nowhere near the sunshine league

    Fair comment goats - I think we'll be in the bottom 3 by the end of this week that's for sure.

    Alright then, let's keep them in.
    We are the only team to get relegated straight away in our first two seasons.

    Despite the money from the promotions and the parachute payments we now seem to be in a worse position than many teams that didn't have that luxury. Who is to blame do you think?
