Well, when it comes to interactions between fans and the board, this was certainly a lot nicer than the infamous ‘you want come?’ incident from earlier in the season.
Although I’m not totally sure what kind of message it’s meant to be sending.
Grime artist JayKae has recently taken to Twitter to air his grievances with the club’s board, and used it to urge the club to buy players this summer in order for us to compete. However, when he decided to tweet directly to club CEO Dong Ren, the owner responded with a rather questionable gif.

It seems as though we might not be getting a major boost in our bank accounts this summer, which is something that might not go down too well with our new boss given the way he likes to operate.
How much will Blues spend in this window?
More than £15m
£15m or less
Ren’s response certainly caused a little bit of a stir on social media, with fans piling on the CEO to have their say on the matter.
Can’t no one take a joke?🤣 course were spending money

Don’t worry Dong, you’re not disappointing me with this tweet response…I fully expect you to deliver us nothing this close season.. you’ll maybe get a keeper and 1 possibly 2 others but then expect the young kids to produce… you haven’t got it in you to deliver anything else

FairPlay for responding to someone from our fan base. Hopefully you can start interacting more with us. Lack of communication is what damages the club! Please be more interactive! There’s a massive hole that needs fixing between the board/owner/directors and the fans.

You really don’t know how to improve the fans opinion of you at all🤦🏼♂️. It’s painful how wrong you get it time after time @XuandongRen

if you spend the money correctly (not on players like montero) like you wish we could easily get into the prem we have the manager for it but at the moment not the squad so if you spend it correct and give karanka time you could make ££££ COME ON DONG💙

We need to. We have a third of a squad.

What about you? What do you make of Ren’s message?
