Hemmings as good as owned the club along time before the official takeover. Why do you think he pulled us out when Derek fucked up.Just for balance, we were a good Championship side before Hemmings took full control of the club. It was only once he took over that the club became a shambles under his mate Maurice Lindsay and we got relegated, and the away days at Exeter and Shrewsbury started.
We have to look at this issue of ownership in a balanced way. His ownership offers the club financial stability and in the current climate nobody else is going to be looking to buy football clubs. But his lack of ambition and interference in footballing matters at times holds us back from becoming successful. The treatment of fans regarding the training ground is unacceptable as well.
Personally I don't think calling for 'Hemmings Out' is the answer to all our problems. But certain things have to change like our approach to the transfer market. It's a false economy collecting loads of lads from the lower leagues who aren't good enough.
Let's face reality with the state of this town and its people, most of which can't be doing with the club we are better suited to league one. The money needed in the championship has gone up exponentially since the Baxi days. Sitting in or around the top six all season for are club is near on a miracle.
