Sadly most fans of other teams pity us. Don’t think the ones that post on here would have wished what has become of us on any rival and the majority preferred the old West Ham.

How are you defining “success”?
I get you. I am very confident in their ability to deliver success off the pitch. For them, that is. Certainly not for us. But I think they're pretty darn good at making money from their investment. So if your support for the club is based upon the dream of being a part of two porn barons latest investment, you should vote "yes".

But the poll only reflects a small minority of the support. The vast majority are delighted with how the club is being run etc etc

I think anyone who has any faith that they are doing the right thing for the club only needs to look at the two sales of the Boleyn Ground on the same day.

They do not have my confidence. The only confidence they have is from their Private Accouts managers - everything over the last ten years has been for their financial gain leading to us being no better off

They forever muddied the waters with the move. In general, we know our place as fans. But as soon as they made the club move, and given what they moved it to and how they did it, they massively moved the goalposts.

The entirety of their tenure is subject to scrutiny, all underpinned by a classless way of working that has alienated a fanbase that's sick of being lied to and taken for fools.

They tried to do all of this with Birmingham. Now they've done it to us. They're a despicable bunch and can't wait until we're rid of them.

It's a "no", by the way.

How many of our fans do you think consider the above statement as success? Top 20 richest clubs? So we can re-sign Randolph and continue to try and sign players on loan? That's perhaps being successful as a business, but not as a football club.

Regular Premier League football a success? 2 Top half finishes, 2 pre group stage Europa League exists, 0 cup finals and a season of Championship football thrown in? I don't think anyone can consider this to be any sort of success for a club of our size.

We're not even improving to the point of regularly finishing in the top 10 and trying to better that. We're pretty much at our worst points total since they bought the club?

I think it's pretty easy to determine what is considered a success tbf.

I imagine a couple of unsures will be board sympathisers who will hide under the ‘better the devil you know’ banner.

Get out of our club please. You're breaking my heart.
