Search To Start For Best And Worst Owners

Against League 3 will soon launch their second annual search for the best and worst owners in English football.

In 2017, Charlton Athletic’s Roland Duchatelet picked up the title of Worst Owner, while Huddersfield’s Dean Hoyle was named the Best Owner in English football.

Duchatelet received a rating of just 1.12 out of 10 in 2017. Over 4,800 fans participated in last year’s survey.

Who do you think will English football’s Best and Worst owner? Let us know in the comments below.

Fans will be asked to score their club’s owner on a range of issues, with the scores averaged against the number of responses for each club to decide an overall approval rating.

The survey will include all clubs from the Premier League to the National League N/S divisions.

The survey is very short and should take no more than a few minutes to complete.

Supporters will also be able to offer additional comments explaining their views.

Stay tuned to our website and Twitter feed on Monday when the survey goes live.

  1. Don’t know best but worst owner would be John nixon carlisle utd succeeded in putting club well into debt gets rid of best players now reduced to a team of loanees won’t listen to people who wanted to buy club only interested in position with efl for div 2 for what he gets out of it +trips allover.

  2. Worst one has to be Lee Power in my eyes as a swindon supporter he’s done nothing apart from ruin a club that was once not a bad team and knew how to play football and now we have Sunday league standard players that can’t do nothing but hey that’s not their fault is it they have just came because they want to play league football and with our cheap options I guess that’s all we can afford. Need a new owner asap one that is actually willing to invest in this club and not one that don’t care and just going for loanees don’t get me wrong a couple is nice but near enough half the team that’s just not on #powerout🖕

  3. Best is the Man City chairman. Worst has got to be Lee Power (Swindon Town), the Oystons or the Chesterfield chairman

  4. Hull City’s owners the Allams. They are everything that’s wrong with running a football club. From a ridiculous and embarrassing name change to abolishing concession prices.Turning a strong squad into a relegation fighting one in two years. Absolute vermin. No wonder Steve Bruce walked away.

  5. Oystons have killed a fantastic club, the club is dead. Think there the worse by a mile. #OystonOut

  6. Luton’s current board, 2020, fronted by Gary Sweet, saved the club after -30pts saw us drop out of the league.
    – 1st club to pay the living wage
    – signed over naming rights (badge, colours, etc) to the supporters trust.
    – multiple family and community awards.
    – state of the art new training facilities.
    – custodians who have overseen our return back up the divisions.
    – and much more!
    An amazing group!

    • Agree 100 per cent – well said.

      Also, they have turned down hundreds of thousands of pounds offered by betting companies for shirt sponsorship deals.

  7. 2020 have to be far and away the best owners as they took over a club that was being punished by both FL + FA after they allowed people who were NOT fit and proper to take control of our club. Even after saving the club, the authorities punished our new club for the sins of the previous. The owners have rebuilt a club that had literally nothing and it is now waiting for the local council to grant permission for a new ground which will not be funded by oil companies or Big Shots from overseas, but by a new development which will be the first of it’s kind.Whilst this has been going on they found a manager who has transformed things on the field and has us vying for Championship status whilst playing some of the best football anywhere in the country.

  8. Dave Allen & Ashley Carson – overseeing the 2 consecutive relegations to see Chesterfield drop out the FL for the first time in 100+ years. All of this off the back of record player sales, attendances, cup runs which still saw the club fail to turn a profit. Scandal after scandal off the pitch had led to FA fines, sackings and national media attention with all the issues going off in the boardroom. Allen hasn’t been to a game for years, yet is seemingly unwilling to sell to genuine consortiums trying to save the club. Another couple of years could see the end of Chesterfield FC.

  9. Worse owner has to be Dave Allen, he’s slowly killing
    Chesterfield F.C. All he cares about is money, doesn’t give a toss for the fans, he can take Ashley Carson with him too. #Allen out #Carson out

  10. Dave Allen Chesterfield FC. Absolute wanker of a man.

  11. Dave Allen and Ashley Carson – chesterfield FC,

  12. Dave Allen, has the chance to take us to the championship 4 years ago, but seen that he could cash in on our best players, didn’t back Paul Cook. Now look at us 2 back to back relegations to non league football and staring a 3rd relegation straight in the face. Absolute joke of a human.

  13. Dave Allen and Ashley Carson

    Chesterfield!!!!

  14. Dave Allen & Ashley Carson at Chesterfield. Nobody else has seen a decline as intense as ours.

  15. Dave Allen chesterfield
    Bled club dry
    Sold every asset mis-managed beyond belief
    The scandals are endless
    Killing a once proud club
    Sell up and let’s have someone in with ambition who gives a toss about the fans

  16. Chesterfield Fc’s
    Dave Allen & Ashley Carson

    Sucking the life out of the club!

    Sheffield Mafia OUT!!!

  17. Undoubtedly the worst is Dave Allen with his sad side kick Ashley Carson. From L1 playoffs to relegation slot in the National League in just over 3 years.

  18. The best was dear Khun Vichai at Leicester City. A true philanthropist.

  19. Definitely chesterfields by the look of it (Rotherham fan)

  20. Dave Allen & Ashley Carson have single handedly put is in so much financial debt and from league 1 play offs to national league to be considered acceptable especially with our fans constantly being lied to and treated like animals, absolutely tragedy.

  21. The best – Leicester City’s owner. A great man who thought about the community as well as the football club a great loss.

    The worse – Ashley Carson of Chesterfield FC absolutely killing the club whilst Allen takes a back seat and neither of them seem to care!

  22. Dave Allen and Ashley Carson

  23. Dave Allen Chesterfield FC

  24. Dave Allen and Ashley Carson chesterfield fc worst by far

  25. Dave Allen Chesterfield, case after case of jobs for the boys leaving someone who doesn’t have the slightest bit of knowledge about running a football club to run the club day to day. Leading Chesterfield from league 1 playoffs to the foot of the national League in 3 seasons and 3 short months. Record player transfers out, cup runs and we fail to break even. Raffle to go to overseas pre season friendly and the club made up the winner when people had paid hard earned money to enter. Not to mention the rest of the off field scandals Allen and Carson have brought upon this once proud club.

  26. Dave Allen Chesterfield FC failure to oversee the everyday running of the club and leaving someone who hasn’t a clue in charge,which has led to the clubs name being dragged through the mud with numerous off the pitch scandals. The club failed to break even and is losing money at an alarming rate despite record transfer fees and cup runs ,attendances have been pretty constant even after 2 relegations going from league 1 play semifinalists to 19th in the national league in 3 seasons.

  27. Dave Allen and his side kick Ashley Carson are the worst pair of tossers ever In any football history. Chesterfield.

  28. WITHOUT A DOUBT ANDREW JENKINS AT CARLISLE IS YOUR MAN PERSONAL WORTH OF 17.1 MILLION POUNDS HES 88 YEARS OLD AND WONT PUT A PENNY IN HE REALLY MUST THINK THAT YOU CAN TAKE IT WITH YOU.

    10 YEARS IN CHARGE AND A COMPLETE LESSON IN HOW NOT TO RUN A FOOTBALL CLUB

    HASNT SPOKEN TO THE MEDIA IN YEARS AND THE LAST TIME HE DID IT WAS TO CALL THE FANS ” CUNTS ”

    BUT LETS NOT FORGET HE.S ABLEY ASSISTED BY JOHN [ HOW MANY COMMITTEES AND PANELS CAN I GET ON TO CLAIM THE EXPENSES FROM ? ] NIXON AND OF COURSE THE COUNTRY,S NO 1 SHOP BOY STEVE [ I.VE NOT GOT A POT TO PISS IN ] PATTISON AND NOT FORGETTING, OF COURSE, THE COUNTRY’S WORST SUPPORTERS TRUST WHOSE TONGUES ARE SO FAR UP THE OWNERS ARSE IT REALLY ISNT TRUE.

    ALL IN ALL A COMPLETE AND UTTER SHAMBLES UNDER THE OWNERSHIP OF PEOPLE WHO SHOULDNT BE ALLOWED ANYWHERE NEAR THE OWNERSHIP OF A FOOTBALL CLUB.

    BUT MIND YOU THEY SAY YOU GET THE OWNERS YOU DESERVE AND IF WE HAD FANS WITH A TENTH THE BALLS OF THOSE AT BLACKPOOL JENKINS WOULD HAVE BEEN CONSIGNED TO THE DIRECTORS BOX IN THE SKY A LONG TIME AGO.

  29. Anyone who says chesterfield owners aren’t the worse clearly don’t understand football. What they have done is a disgrace to once a great club.

  30. Christian Wolstenholme

    Owen Oyston – Took the Premier League money and used it for his own personal benefit.The team are training on a field with no covered accommodation,no running water no electricity.Bloomfield Road is being allowed to rot,attendances due to HIS actions are at an all time low and yet the man steadfastly refuses to buckle under the weight of his varied and many mistakes.

  31. Dave Allen chesterfield fc

  32. DAVE ALLEN AND ASHLEY CARSON OWNER AND DIRECTOR OF CHESTERFIELD FC.
    THEY HAVE RUINED THE CLUB AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO WHILE THEY ARE STILL THERE.
    GET THEM GONE!!!
