From the moment the Rupert Lowe talkSPORT interview was announced Southampton fans expressed dismay at hearing from their former chairman at this turbulent time.


Wikipedia report:

On 30 June 2006, Lowe resigned under huge pressure from club supporters, including the newly formed Saints Trust, following the club’s failure to win promotion back to the Premiership. Michael Wilde, a new investor in Southampton Leisure Holdings PLC, led a new team of directors in taking over the club.

In July 2008, Lowe returned as Southampton Leisure Holdings plc Chairman. At an AGM on 23 December 2008, Lowe received several calls to resign from former Chairman Leon Crouch and from fans and shareholders at the meeting. Also, 30 silver coins were thrown in the direction of Lowe by fan Richard Chorley (who was thrown out of the meeting). After his return, protests took place against his role at the club.

On 2 April 2009, Southampton Leisure Holdings PLC was put into administration, resulting in Lowe’s resignation from the board.

Lowe: " I am a big, posh, irrelevant prick whose poor management of #saintsfc led to it's administration and near extinction." #TalkSport
