Sack The Board

Sack The Board

The most significant result to come out of Vital Manchester City's latest poll of City supporters is the significant lack of support shown to the current board of directors.

In a poll that has been running for two weeks, only 4% of those polled offer support to the current board in the wake of the recent takeover talk.

Unsurprisingly over half of those polled, 56%, say they would welcome massive American investment and a buyout of the club.

The newly formed supporters trust can also take heart from these results with just over a third of those polled believing support should be offered to them.

Most damaging to the club however is the lack of support shown towards a boardromm that could do little wrong several years back.

Lack of investment in the first team, a failure to listen to the supporters and unwavering support for a manger who has lost the team are all factors in the collapse of support.

Coupled with yesterday's dissent at Blackburn, both inside and outside the stadium, it is perhaps time for the board to start listening. I can only speculate from this set of results that the current incumbents have reached popularity levels on a par with Peter Swales.

The last thing we need is demonstrations outside Eastlands. However those that remember the protests outside Maine Road, to rid the club of Swales, can tell they are not far away.

Damning statistics yet again. What would it/ will it take for this City board to have listened to the supporters? On just about every issue the City fans have either been dismissed, ignored or taken for granted. Many of us never wanted Fatty Fowler who's signing started the slow decline. We never even get a say in what colours and kits the team stroll about in ffs nevermind the next waster we sign!!! Well, they've boxed themselves into a corner with their failure to act, sanctioning and supporting the rubbish Pearce and co have served up/brought in. What next, Wigley, Jackett and Steele to help plot the downfall of Chelsea this week?

I don't know why anyone bothers. Everyone knows that the supporters (customers) aren't listened to. That is why so many have drifted away and why so many more won't renew. The club has lost touch with the reality that is its supporters. The board will be like the boy on the burning deck. ***** scared to make any decision and just hoping it comes right under Pearce.

The board sanctioned this regime. The board have given him £12 million to spend. The board are just as guilty in dragging this club back down. The problem is they lost touch with the supporters. The brand has become more important than the product and that may well cost the club a great deal.
