    With tensions running high and blame laid at many for this ongoing saga, who would you like to see carrying the can for this mess?

    There's 9 on them all on 50%. By my reckoning, that totals over 100%, so I declare fix!

    You need to click 'others' then, but by virtue of doing so you can share that blame with Julian Darby.

    Who I blame most and who I despise most are not actually the same.

    Yeah, like I blame my wife, but despise Sisu.

    Or is it the other way round?

    Think we are quite adept at "fixing" these types of votes. Can we blame it all on Nick?

    Mainly I blame Ann Lucas.
    All parties have done wrong, all parties need to fuck off and leave CCFC to somebody who cares, w**ps need to fuck off because (Ricoh arena aside) no team should be uprooted from their home town/fans and moved (see MK Dons/us at sixfileds).
    SISU took us to sixfileds, something they should never be forgiven for.
    Sepalla is a c**t, down right c**t. But she's a business woman running CCFC like a business.
    Ann Lucas however let hatred of Sepalla get in the way of her judgement. She sold us down the river to a franchise, after all the spouting off she done after sixfileds and teams not being moves from their homes etc, she sanctioned a club being moved. She also made terms that she has let slip.

    If I had to blame just 1 person in the whole mess, it's be her.

    Everyone is guilty to an extent. Things were bad enough that Sisu was in a position to buy the club in the first place.

    With hindsight, leaving Highfield Road was probably the worst thing that has happened to this club.

    Proportion of blame
    Brian Richardson 10%
    Mike McGinnity 5%
    Council 10%
    SISU 70%
    Wasps 5%

    Proportion of contempt
    Richardson 1%
    McGinnity 1%
    Council 20%
    SISU 39%
    Wasps 39%

    Would most like to see go bust

    SISU 50%
    Wasps 50%

    Most likely to win ‘Hedge fund of the year’

    Nobody

    This is my take on it. Happy to have any misconceptions corrected factually,

    The previous board, whether by inadequacy or whatever fault or reason, put the club in a position where new ownership was necessary
    Ray Ranson was looking for a club and engaged the financial support of SISU by selling them a dream of turning the club around at a profit
    Allegedly CCC vetoed other interest and favoured SISU because the other interests were focused on acquiring the stadium and SISU were not
    When the turnaround of the club didn't seem to be happening SISU (or their representatives) panicked and took a short term view on profitability, leading to Ranson leaving
    SISU, or their representatives, decided to play hard ball on the rent and refused to pay it. Eventually ACL petitioned for administration of the club ostensibly to recover monies owed. Some say that this was an attempt to force ownership change. If so it was naive and SISU put the club into administration themselves so controlling the outcome.
    This argument led to FIsher moving the club to Sixfields and starting a dialogue about a new stadium, Nobody with any sense thought this would ever happen, but some people chose to believe it when it suited them to.
    A deal was done , and the club returned to the Ricoh

    Up until this point, whatever mistakes had been made, whatever poor, misjudged or downright incompetent decisions had been made, everything was reversible and, with good will, a new relationship could have been developed.

    Then CCC sold ACL to Wasps owners. Some would say it was a spiteful action to finally get one over on SISU; some would say it was good business for the council. From that point on CCFC were condemned either to renting at the Ricoh, with the resultant limitations on income streams, or securing a new stadium to play in. Even if a new owner came and the poisonous relationships became a thing of the past, that would remain the situation.

    The subsequent JRs and legal arguments are in some ways immaterial. The damage was done.

    So yes, SISU have been poor owners with a history of poor management decisions, they have no interest in the football club, as such, as long as it doesn't cost them any more money. I will be glad to see the back of them.....one day

    But it was the act of selling ACL to Wasps ownership that determined the future of the football club

    Oggy. If CCFC was a cartoon and Scooby Doo caught any of the people you can vote for, when Fred pulled their face mask off he would reveal Oggy. FACT!

    For putting us in a situation where we couldn’t afford the ground: McGinnity both for selling the option and for the mismanagement that meant we never got close to a quick return to the Prem.

    For the current situation: Sisu, because they knew what they were taking on and tried a tactic that’s clearly not working and refuse to budge from it.

    I blame Joy Sepalla 100% she is in charge of our club no one else. When she came in all the talk was getting us into the premiership no talk of owning the stadium really did so well at that i don't think.As for owning the ground no chance want everything for nothing even said Wasps( who seized an opportunity.) paid over the odds for it.As for dispise Tim Fisher and Ann join her jn that respect

    Ray ranson should def get more stick than his does

    Although is quite ironic that a big part of him leaving was not wanting Connor Thomas to go to Liverpool. Was actually a good deal!

    I've gone for the women, like watching a catfight outside Tomango's back in the day. Seppala for sanctioning the move to Northampton and Lucas for the spiteful act of giving Wasps a 250 year lease, which has put a ceiling on the aspirations of the club and led to the court actions of subsequent years.

    Ranson fucked us double. Bought sisu here in the first place and refused to buy the stadium when he had the chance instead preferring to back Chris fucking Coleman.
