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.
