I agree sas. I'm guessing we lost board members when the Walker Trust left. You need to fill those spaces so I guess this is inevitable. It is their club they have a right to those board positions.

When the Venky's took over one board member left, that was the vice chairman appointed to oversea the Walker trust interest's a certain Mr Brown. It only makes sense that the Venky's have their own people on the board, perhaps the new board will have some say in what is happening now and John Williams can carry on steering the club as before.

Your screen name is KKK and you're shouting about racism? You have to be on the wind up. Anyway I don't see how Metalrover is being racist by pointing out that they are Indian. If he made a derogatory comment based on the fact that they are Indian then fair enough call him a racist but he hasn't yet. Back on topic, as others have said why shouldn't the owners appoint people to the board.

Not too bothered who is on the board tbh, Majority shareholders will make decisions regardless, As for racist comments, none were made, however children read this site and bad language is unwelcome fromanyone regardless of race.

The KKK are a notorious group of racists in the US, in fact I'd be mightily surprised if you were unaware of them. If you are however unaware why not read up on them and then see why your screen name coupled with your comments of racism might seem a touch strange. Also as Glen said no need for the name calling from anyone.
