Lol. You can't rewrite history. The club would have gone out of business long before Chase could have done anything to put right the finances, the money that was gone, or overspent or whatever spin you want to put on it. We were broke, kaput, down and out by the end under Chase. Chased the dream until reality caught up with him - and the rest of us.
Thanks goodness we had Watling and Delia/MJW to save the day and set us back on a path that led to the topflight again and exciting years of success with Worthy and Lambert and developing a forward looking club that is now safe from the likes of owners who might overspend their way to putting the club in jeopardy ever again.
Delia ain't perfect, but she's the best we are going to get - at least until some investor comes along that has the right credentials to take the club on, like it or lump it.
