Sheffield Wednesday have confirmed that Dave Allen has resigned as chairman.
To say Allen was a controversial figurehead for the club would be the mother of all understatements.
Allen polarised opinion amongst supporters during his time at Hillsborough, after taking over from Geoff Hulley as chairman in 2003.
Perhaps Allen's finest moment was persuading Paul Sturrock to become the club's manager in 2004, a move which paid off handsomely when Wednesday were promoted back to the Championship via the play-offs the following year.
Allen also personally financed the signing of several Owls' players over the years, but made no secret of the fact that he felt the club needed a fresh cash injection from other investors.
But when a proposed takeover by former Everton director Paul Gregg collapsed earlier this year, Allen's frustration was clear, as he blamed supporter's group Wednesdayite for blocking the deal.
This was just one example of his stormy relationship with the Wednesday fans.
Earlier this month he was cleared by the FA of bringing the game into disrepute after allegedly calling one fan a "venomous bitch", and referring to some fans as "scum" and "cretins" after they shouted abuse at him during a match.
Many Wednesdayites have been campaigning for months on 606 for Allen to go, so now that he has, what are your thoughts?
