Was LOFT Protest poorly timed?

PostPosted by matador » Wed Jan 11, 2017 11:04 am

Yes, Cavasin had to go.
Yes, Becchetti has ran us terribly.

But was it a good idea to piss him off and have him abandon us mid season, leaving us over the trapdoor into non-league?

I suspect the LOFT argument is that he had lost interest anyway, but he had enough interest to sack Cavasin just days after the protest.

If we go down, some might look back with regret.

Would he have sacked Cavasin if the protest had not taken place?

No regrets because it had to be done. Becchetti can dish it out but he obviously can't take it.

Immediately after he appointed Alberto Cavasin on a two year deal.

Yes I think the protest was justified and should it have been done sooner?
Yes everyone could sense he didn't have a clue how to run a football club and the way he let Coxy leave was the final straw for me.
The protest should have happened after that.
He is a self-obsessed egomaniac and his treatment of staff and fans sums this up perfectly

LOFT have played a blinder here and will get their endgame which they've always wanted (Especially Roper) soon enough.

LOFT encourage mass protest --> Owner gets the hump and fu*ks off ---> Club goes bust --> Phoenix club is formed with LOFT in charge

Not convinced that a protest after the Hess or Cox sacking wouldve been any better. Still would leave us cut off mid season with relegation a real possibility.

Should have protested after Hendon was sacked. We were at least safe then.

The fans had more than every right to protest given what was going on. However, that Becchetti is somewhat of an irrational owner getting very little for his money, it was a risk that could do damage.

It seems to have done that. Not been to a game since then, money seems to have dried up, rumours of the club up for sale.

A few moments of satisfaction, followed by where we are now. A good idea? People will make up their own minds.

What else could the fans have done to show their displeasure?

Was there a way of doing it without hurting poor Franny's feelings?

Not sure I entirely agree with you there Bot.
So by that I assume it's better to protest against the top brass if you're in a higher position in the league so that when you have annoyed them to that extent they want to leave, that it will not affect the team as much as if they were in a more precarious situation?
So basically these guys can act in any derogatory way towards the fans and the players, using the club, but as long as we are competing at the top end it doesn't matter?
This is exactly what is wrong with football now in my opinion and it will only get worse.
OTH is correct, this thread is a wind up
