It's time to turn on our owners

Is relegation a justification for getting rid of arguably the best ownership we’ve ever had? Would it not be just one step backwards after several forward since they took over?

It would be a complete reset that will have meant we wasted the best opportunity the club has ever had.

It would be a complete ****ing shambles

They're not arguably the best owners we've had, they are easily the best owners we've ever had.

However, that doesn't mean that they can maintain that role forever. In fact, I guarantee that they won't.
The point of this thread is to set out why the owners role is now different and how that is affecting us as a club. Vichai died and the consequences for his business and our football club are massive. It's just a fact of life that we no longer have someone that can make decisions the way it was done when Vichai was around.

His son is the new leader of the club but he doesn't control King Power or have the ability to allocate funds from the core business. That's why we cannot rely upon them any more. That is why we are now wholly reliant on loans to sustain us. That's why it is now fair to raise the question about ownership.

All the advantages of having a wealthy owner prepared to put money into our club are gone. We are now the same as most other clubs. Except most other clubs have no accrued debts amounting to about £350m with huge liabilities and a reducing income which could potentially dramatically drop (relegation).

Should we be accepting of the change of role from our owners and the dramatic rise in our debts without challenge because of what they did some years ago? I say no.

It would be the most miserable protest ever. A bunch of depressed city fans.

This stuff is starting to annoy me. The fact the club have to post it every time we're graced with Top's presence doesn't feel right.

I feel the same way. I doubt they did, but if Chelsea did that under Abramovich, people would find it distasteful.

So you can’t be bothered, then…

Oh, the irony
I’m not able/prepared to protest against the club. Primarily because I live in the U.S. But even if I didn’t, I’m not sure that I would. I would likely stop regularly attending matches given the current dross. As I’m not prepared to protest or publicly take action, I don’t call for other to do so and I don’t lament them for not doing so.

For those who are able to regularly attend matches, and therefore have the ability to protest and display their anger at how the club is being run, in-person and in the stadium, if you choose not to then your call for others to do it is meaningless. You have no right to judge others for not doing what you’re not doing.

This is a general point. Not aimed at causing argument.

I'm off to the printers

The players are usless, the board are remiss.
The **** is still here, it's taking the piss.
We've got a Praet and a massive ****ing twat.
**** the twat off said the Cat in the Hat.
Good stuff Julia.
