2019 Ownership Survey Open

Our Ownership Survey for 2019 is now OPEN.

Each year we survey fans from every club between the Premier League and the National League N/S in search of the best and worst owners in the country.

Last year over 3,500 fans named Accrington Stanley’s Andy Holt as English Football’s best club owner, while Owen Oyston was named the worst.

This year we’re opening the voting slightly earlier. The results will be announced at the end of December.

At the end of 2019 Against League 3 polled 3,065 fans from 141 different clubs …


  1. In Dave Allen and his lickspittles we have the worst owners in football. The toxicity at the top, driven by an owner who doesn’t care or attend games, is cascading through the club. Hence our pathetic last 4 years. I cannot understand why he continues, he loans money to keep the club running, the debt increases as does his perceived pig headedness to refuse to sell. Baffling.

    Chesterfield FC

  2. Carlisle united

    • Dave Allen at Chesterfield FC is the worst! No idea how to run a football club, blames the fans for his own failings. Over-values the true value of the club so refuses to sell out of spite and believes nobody in Chesterfield can afford to buy him out, when in fact there are some that are willing to. (Little town syndrome). The fans deserve better!

    • Alan Hardy, Notts County. Ego trip gone wrong.

  3. The heart and soul torn from our club and its loyal supporters by the current owner and his henchmen puppets. It doesnt and shouldnt get any worse,,,but probably will. Seeing us lose our league status and then struggle in the National League to stay up we were rewarded with a £49 increase in our season tickets for this current season…you can only push loyalty so far,,,,

  4. My nephew is a Sheffield Wednesday supporter so I asked him ‘Mr. Allen is taking over C.F.C. – what do you think? – ‘Toxic’ – he said. There is no defence for what he is doing to the club and only he knows what his desired end result will be. However he was persuaded to take over a club – that he had zero affinety with – solely to develop and profit from the commercial side of the club i.e. dining, hospitality, etc. He has employed people who have absolutely no idea of how to run a professional football club – whether or not this has been done to spite the fans is unclear, however he is an extremely successful business man and as soon has he realised that the football club, as a business, wasn’t going to break even, he decided to ‘pull the plug’.

    • Chesterfield football club

      Well what can you say, nearly 8000 crowds and now scraping around 3000, the verge of championship football and now the depths of the national league and scandal after scandal during the tenure of David Allen as club

      Just do one last honest thing Mr Allen cut your loses admit defeat like a man and sell up, you have failed

  5. Ashley Carson is the worst, most incompetent official in the clubs 153 year history. Lies, fake raffles, questionable characters being embraced by the club. All under Carsons watch with the owner Dave Allen’s approval.
    These 2 men were a dismal failure at Sheffield Wednesday, and at Chesterfield, these 2 men, with a collection of “volunteer assistant directors” and cronies riding the graveyard train have brought our once proud club from the league one play offs, to the edge of relegation to the national league north and financial oblivion with debts that outweighs the clubs value. They’ve delivered a bankrupt insolvent non league club from one that was on the brink of the championship. In 4 1/2 seasons.
