You're effectively comparing apples with oranges in including owner-chairmen like Power to figurehead chairmen like Carson.

But still, the answer is Jim Little.

You've missed Rikki Hunt as well. A rogue's gallery that rather puts Power in perspective, you'd think...

SSW?

Well-meaning, perhaps, but his incompetence nearly put us out of business.

Indeed..... we've had 3 owners as such, SSW, Black and Power.  SSW and Black, to an extent still worked with a Board which may have had a Chairman, not necessarily the owner.  Power doesn't.

When SSW and Black dumped us into Div 4, they made sure we came staright out the next season.

Did Jed ever really own the club  Hmmm

It was so difficult to work out who was doing what back then other than Callum Rice "doing the cruises"

Never mind all time worst XIs, what's our all time worst board? Sandy Gray in charge of finance, Callum Rice on entertainment, Mike Diamandis on PR?

You could argue that SSW's involvement in getting us back-up was to allow someone else to invest and start pulling some of the strings - not that it lasted long, but it gave the foundation needed in that summer.

Hillier is an odd one - lots of good because of him but ultimately his actions nearly crippled the club.

Diamandis can't get on the list because he clearly wasn't running the shop, not even a little bit.

Hillier because he got us demoted and cost the fans a chance of promotion to the top division for the first time.

But would we have got that far without him? You could argue that if it hadn't been for his dodgy dealing we would never have got out of the old fourth division.

Besides, what he did was no different, or worse, than a lot of clubs did at the time (and probably still do.....). He just got caught and he, and the club, was made an example of.

Jed needs to be there as he'd get my vote. Outright lied to peoples faces, threatened to have fights with people, lied in court and one of his cronies is now in prison. Could argue Diamandis should be there as he did it without the title.....

You'd have to have Colin Howard as groundsman..... his straw on the pitch in 86 was the reason for 6 successive away games.
