I think without all the money spent under his stewardship we'd have been heading towards League 1. Unfortunately it appears it wasn't his money to spend.

I tend to agree. He had nothing to do with our relegation and the accounts show he did a lot to bring down the wage bill but it was probably too far gone by then. Its like if you buy a car and the previous owner has totally driven it into the ground so you can't afford the repair bills. Now you can say you were foolish for buying it, but the fact its a complete wreck isn't down to you really. Only thing you can really lay at his door is employing Bruce.

Questions remain around his doctorate, his source of wealth, his actual wealth and the success of his non-footballing business.

Promotion or not, we would have been in trouble with this charlatan eventually.

Is this the same Tony Xia who took us to the brink of administration?

The very same, I donít get the love in, he was naive at best and downright dangerous at worst.

Me too.  Never sure about Xia and if he hadn't been bailed out by the new people we would be in deep shit.  Bye bye.

I can't see that Xia deserves any credit at all.  He was lucky that he found two people willing to buy him out, after he'd made a complete pig's arse of everything.

 I wanted to lynch him/hang him and stone him in a gravel pit come June 2018.  He reminds me of that young fella at Aldershot or the Man Utd bloke who juggled the ball on the pitch first game of the season.

Potentially a very dangerous man with regards to our history - somehow the great gods got us out of the mess he help create.

May still have issues such as Wynass's dismissal claim to tackle though.

He came, he saw, and had some posting about starting again in the Beezer Homes League.

Good fucking riddance.  Those shoes were unforgivable.

He came, he left. We didn't know why he arrived, what he wanted, whether he was as rich as Walnuts or as skint as I am, where the money came from, how close to the edge he left us. We didn't even know how to pronounce his name.

Complete chancer. Eventually he'll have been shown up for what he is so thank the Lord we managed to fast forward through it.
