He has made mistakes no two ways about it but in general our fanbase have expected too much too soon. The playoff seasons raised expectations and if you don't get promoted it is considered failiure. I feel for him as I do think he wants us to do well. He has made poor decisions and hasn't reacted when needed. Giving players in their 30's 4 year contracts like Fletcher, and refusing to sell players and refresh an ageing squad

 

It scares me to think who will buy us. Let's be honest he isn't really going to care as long as he gets his money back

The pricing was justifiable to increase turnover.

 

I'm not as critical of the signings as many on here.

 

The players signed were appointed to get us into the PL within 2-3 years, so longevity I guess wasn't an issue.

 

And in any case, to stay up we'd have had to make a lot of signings anyway because most of our lot wouldn't have been good enough for the PL.

 

It's the managerial appointments which have been the problem, and the reluctance to fire them when they clearly are failing.

 

Chansiri has never grasped that the players hold the power, and that once they decide a manager isn't right then a replacement must be found.

 

It was obvious in the pre-season friendly against Rangers that the players' hearts were no longer in it with Carlos in charge.

It had nothing to do with the pig fans in my opinion. The job broke him, not any of the proper muppets on social media. He didn't know what to do, that was evident.

I think he's a decent bloke. Badly advised and a little naive in football matters but still a decent bloke.

After all we've put up with in the last 40 years we finally get a chairman willing to put money in and a desire to see us great again and we drive him out. 

We will live to rue this.

I genuinely feel sorry for him.

And for us.

 

I agree with a lot of this but making arguably one of the worst managerial appointments in the club’s history if not the worst has caused a lot of this situation IMO?

This was always going to happen.  DC just doesn't have the temperament for this.  Took everything as a wounding , utterly personal  insult.

I think Thai people tend to be a lot more chilled than what you might deem the Western world. Everything here is so in your face

Now we'll have 10 more year of TV aerial fitters and Azerbaijani comedians lining up to rob us blind. 

 

Careful what you wish for

You’d have to try really hard to come in and spend 50 million quid and make the team worse.

I don't know.  I'd hate to blanket statement. Vichai at Leicester got it.  Understood it better than any owner in recent memory.

 

I just don't think DC has the business nous.  Too easily swayed by advisors and too easily hurt by basic criticisms.

This. We got very close. We need a Plan B, and DC, as well intentioned as he is, hasn’t got one. 

 

DC needs to sell up. Let’s shake hands and thank him for his efforts.

Getting to the playoff final in his 1st year, with hindsight, wasn’t a good thing. It set the bar very high, very early on. Expectations went up, we all got carried away.
