I think that the current owners are holding the team back, but not the "club", which let's face it, belongs to them. I always thought that "club" meant the fans, we're the only constant after all. I also think that we have become an annoying irrelevance to the new definition of 'club/board'. I don't like this, or pretend to understand the certain type of fan for which this type of discussion is natural, and I have never gone in for that "our board is better than your board" nonsense that worryingly is so common these days. I've never trusted any of the owners of THFC - why should I? They're not in it for us.
