Well, I've racked me brains trying to think of a better Chairman we've had, and for all the criticism he gets on here, it should be easy. But I can't think of one, he's the best we've had in my lifetime. So, who has a better one in mind?

He's learning fast and will only get better, good times ahead if we all pull together.

They all have done good things and bad things. 

It's all a bit subjective. 

 

Not really, for a Chairman, most measures are objective, with regards to their success. 

 

Pretty much League & financial position. Not subjective at all.

Well it is.

. I'd argue that having the highest ticket prices in the league for second division football might be considered bad by some supporters.

 

I'd argue that a chairman who wanted to change the clubs colours like the Cardiff one did might be considered a bad thing by supporters.

 

Bert McGhee helped us rebuild. But wouldn't splash that extra bit to help Wilko really go to the next level. 

Was that good or bad? Howard thought bad and left.

 

On the other hand, he didn't allow us to spaff money to oblivion chasing the dream ... like Richards did. 

 

On the other hand some would argue that on Richards' watch they had thier most enjoyable years following the team.

 

So yes. In a thread asking who fans think has been the best chairman , yes, I do think it's subjective.

These are details, but as measures of success, Chairmen are measured on league & financial position.

 

The Stripes thing was Massive, for me, & thank God he did the right thing in the end. But ultimately, the afore mentioned will be what he will be objectively measured on.

Oh I get the measures of success thing. 

 

But in my time following  weve lifted one trinket,  I'll probably never see us do it again. So it's the smaller things I judge on!

 

The kit might be a small thing to some. But what's a club without its identity! I could quite easily have judged him on that alone!

As you say, fortunately he's come around and actually delivered the best one for years. 

 

(Just don't ask about junior socks in the megastore:laugh:)

As an S6 born & bred, identity is massive to me Snotty.

 

But the measures of success, of  league & financial position,  will be what Chansiri is objectively judged on.

Aye, true enough Zedders, true enough, that's how the history books will remember. 

 

But us, with fire in our bellies judge them with our passions!

 

We should probably have a gaviscon.

Genuine question.

Not too shabby then LOL,wasnt our highest ever average crowd under Eric Taylor? mid fifties we got around 42K plus as an average,about 1953 ish?

You cant knock Taylor,he brought the club out of the dark ages,modernised us,he was only held back by the boardroom,they lacked his vision.

Mr Sheffield Wednesday,what a guy

The statement bribing the fans about high ticket prices and buying players was a bit strange.

Cheers so he has to be the most successful Chairman we've had in living memory?  Or does one League cup trump that?
