    It sounds like Marriott may be just another typical modern day footballer. Arrogant and thinks he is better than everyone else and so far removed from the real world

    It is my opinion of course and you are entitled to your views too.  Before he took over we had the basis of a decent team that could achieve promotion with just a few sound additions to the team.  He went gung ho and threw millions at trying to get promotion.  He interferes too much and made some very poor decisions when appointing and firing managers at will.  Some of the signings were very rash decisions and have been very poor and as a result we have found ourselves worse off as a team and worse off financially, from what I understand.  Has he been a good owner? In my opinion, no, even if he had good intentions as a supporter and owner.

    Yes. We are worse off than when he took full control.  The bloke may be an astute business man, but a crap football club owner.

    I've been out all day and drinking with it, so this probably won't make sense.
    He agreed to take control on the eve of a one off match that would determine our fate. 
    Since then, the extra investment he's put in has achieved the square root of diddly squat.
    We're no closer to promotion, automatic or otherwise, and I'd lay the blame for most of our lack of progress squarely at his door, not all mind.
    The sacking of both Mac1 and Mac2 for a start, the second in particular after he'd drove us up the league from a poor start, and especially giving Martin a new improved deal at Macs request, he sacked him a few weeks later!
    Madness, and all on Mel.
    I honestly hoped he'd be successful, but his time as owner hasn't improved us in any meaningful way whatsoever.

    How would I know?
    All I see is a load of money invested, and very little to show for it.

    I don't remember any specifics now but any ball Alan Hinton got his White boot to would have been pretty epic, best crosser of a ball i've ever seen in a Rams shirt.

    if mel loses frank over the next few months then you really would have to question his judgement.
    He might have the rubles - but not the marbles - to run a football club.

    Hopefully the players still have belief in their abilities, even if some fans have given up on them as usual.
    We have a very good chance of making the play offs, with a game in hand a top 6 place is ours to lose.
    Favourable fixtures to play and players back from injury after the break, excuse my confidence in what this team can achieve.
    By the way, that’s not being “deluded”, just what the situation is right now. 
    Hey, at least you got your I told your so in nice and early if we don’t finish top 6, that will be a nice one to quote and pat your back in May.
    Keep smiling! 😊
