    Presumably, Daniel told them that. Their preferred yes man candidate for caretaker has now demonstrated it again through his results. Is it too much to hope that they would recognise their mistakes with humility and accept they've got it wrong?

    Yes, it is. They are in this for the money, either now through player sales, or later when someone buys them out.

    The mistake they have made is they think we have a value more than they paid for us. This goes pear shaped when we end up in league 1 again.

    These are not football people, they are investors, investors need a return, end of.

    Fans = nuisance

    Try turning it off and on again.

    I wouldn’t say it’s not working.
    I’d say it hasn’t yet worked.
    I think these owners have been taken by surprise by the strength of the Championship (as most of us have).
    I cannot see them putting in all this time, money and energy for them to let it fail.
    The owners are at the start of their journey.
    We need patience.
    January window will be the litmus test.
    We will have a better idea of what their intentions are then.

    Their intentions are to make money. We have people in charge now with no affinity or attachment to the club or the town, the history or the fans.

    We are a money making vehicle. However we are not alone, Wednesday, Leeds, Derby and the rest are in the same boat.

    How I envy Rotherham, as crap as they are, they are still locally owned and rooted to their community to a degree.

    They have literally watched us be relegated from this league before. If a professional football club is unable to assess the quality of the league they’re in they might as well call it a day.
    Every single transfer window so far has been a ‘litmus test’.

    Longest winless run in 60 years according to a report after the Bristol game.

    If they are at the start of their journey can I be the first to wave them off?

    As most of us have!!!!
    Really you really think most of us are surprised at the strength of the championship you haven’t been paying much attention.
    We all know that young inexperienced teams struggle in the grown up league. We might have seen it before.

    Agree January will make things clearer as will the manager eventually appointed

    The litmus test will be selling Woodrow to give money to sign a few more kids

    Speak for yourself re the strength of the championship. I'm not surprised by it at all. We've spent so many years trying to stay in it that we all should know how difficult it is.

    The biggest surprise is that these lot haven't done their homework and as a result we are woefully short of the required standard.

    I've got zero faith in them. I don't doubt they are good at business, but they are showing they know **** all about football.

    Best side I’ve seen this season so far is Leeds,all the rest were no great shakes,we shoot ourselves in the foot every game by gifting teams goals,3 more experienced players at this level with this squad and we’d be more than holding our own.Its obvious to a blind man.

    Eh? They had six months in charge afore we were relegated last time from this league, I’d say they knew full well what was needed tbh. Taken by surprise? Give over, they are taken the absolute pi$$ more like!

    The litmus test will be the imminent (hopefully) Head Coach appointment

    I’ve been paying quite a bit of attention.
    I suggest as part of Admin you do the same.
    Turn the clock back on the BBS to before the season started and look at the predictions of where we would be this season.
    I can’t remember anyone predicting by November we will have won one game.

    I think most fans expected it to be difficult. I certainly didn't expect to beat Fulham.

    I certainly didn't expect us to be as poor as this though. No one would predict 1 win from 16 though, not with any team.

    I can’t remember but it was in the Chronicle on Friday. It was over twenty I think it may have been 29 in 1951 but I’m really not sure. I have that right.

    I think a few of us didn’t expect us to sell both Centre Halves and Moore and not sign anyone with experience at Championship level. I didn’t expect us to be quite this bad but we all saw before what happens when you sell half a team and replace with players with potential I was expecting us to be more around Luton’s level but had no real idea because I didn’t know much about most of the players we signed
