    As the titles says, can you list all the positives about SISU and their role with being owners of CCFC?

    I will, on another day after this has run it's course, ask about the negatives of SISU being here.

    I'm interested to see both cases if you choose to take part.

    Got rid of the 1.3m rent agreement.

    That's literally it.

    I'm sure Nick can find positives, he always seems quick to defend them

    Another new poster jumping in for digs, nice one!

    Not much, apart from maybe the rent going. Maybe if they get us self sufficient also. Would be a good base then.

    Been a member for around 6 months now and read everyday, so new poster is unfair.

    I appreciate the work you put into the site, however I just don't see any positives whatsoever to sisu. And as for being self sufficient I believe they blew that chance when they failed to buy the Ricoh.

    I have to ask and I genuinely don't know the answer.
    You probably don't either but how many footy clubs are self sufficient?

    Up till now I think they saw the importance in the academy.

    I assume and hope they still do.

    Backing Mowbray with signings like

    Bigi
    Stokes
    Turnbull
    Jones

    Biggest one for me from my own personal experience if you have a problem with their decision making and contact them. As long as you are not an arse about it.
    They will front up and debate it with you.
    I fully respect that and can't fault them on that front especially Tim Fisher.

    They rival Aesop in the creation of fairy tales including the classic 'The Pied Piper of Northampton'

    6 months? Says you joined May 2016. I make that 3 months. Failed to buy the Ricoh? Don't think it was ever an option.

    The irony is incredible. When they first arrived you happily followed their tune as if they were the pied piper. Now you follow Wasps tune as if they are the pied piper. You must have a thing for hedge funds.

    Most supported at the start. But once they went to Northampton most jumped off the bus.

    Actually, after the shambles of Richardson/McGinnity/Robinson/Elliot/Higgs, then the operations of the club needed overhauling.

    It was a shame that Ranson and co. didn't do that really. Their attempts to do so lately have seen the arrows miss the mark, but it's undeniable that how the club operates has needed inspecting and changing for some time.

    The fact they've got us even thinking about infrastructure and foundations is probably a good thing, to move the expectation of fans away from 'sign a player, any player' to the fact that a well-run club builds from the bottom up. Even if (when) SISU don't do that, that could stand us in good stead going forward, with ending up with appropriate custodianship, and a long-term view.

    No they were normal fans who thought administration was the worst thing that could happen and Sisu had stopped that happening.
    They didn't know how things would work out and just got back to the football.
    But yes to you they are morons

    Yet some of those people are now calling for Wasps to take us over. "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results."

    Something needs to change as this is getting worse.
    We are rotten to the core.

    You're right. SISU never looked at purchasing the Ricoh as an option.
