    At last, a willingness to shut up the muck spreaders. Grateful to Mr McCrory - and I dont think he is breaching the NDA as he is simply disputing a obviously slack bit of reporting (scurrilous comes to mind).

    Now, as I said on an earlier thread, come on everyone, try and get past the hype, speculation, worry, rumour, scaremongering..... etc. Patience and / or facts. Thats what we need and nothing else. We will all know soonn enough what is to happen and this should be revealed in the next 48 hours. Keep open minds and crossed fingers until then as all else is a waste of your nerves and time.

    I was there last night at Colcheter and what a great game. We sang, we laughed and we made the players and PDC know how much we care and want them to keep pushing through. The whole night reminded me of why I am and always will be a STFC fan. The trip on the bus where we made new friends, put the world right and took the pi55 out of each other. In the ground at the bar, a few beers and more merriment and a warm of the vocal chords. Then pitch side, applauding the team, ritual mocking and ridicule of home fans and ground - more merriment. Kick off, only voices heard - ours as we motivated and cheered on the Town. Half time, more beers and merriment and more friends. Second half - the ecstacy of a goal and the nerves as we fought and ground out a well defended win and 3 points. Then the afterwards as we applauded the team and sang their praises and then the emotional chanting and pleading to PDC to stay. Back on the bus, more comraderies and targeted mickey taking. Got home worn out but happy - why - because I am an STFC fan. As such I am going to be there whatever, for such nights as these - because they make up for the bad days. Players, Managers and Boards will come and go but the one true constant is the fans - my friends and extended family. Warmth and respect!! See you Sat and COYR!! 3 more points and PDC to stay please.
    That made me well up.....

SWINDON TOWN: McCrory rubbishes Di Canio sack plan report

McCrory rubbishes Di Canio sack plan report

JED McCrory has rubbished a report in a national newspaper this morning claiming his consortium plans to sack manager Paolo Di Canio and replace him with Mike Newell and Brian Stein.

The Daily Mirror ran a story in their Wednesday edition which stated the prospective new owners of the Robins were ready to make the move due to the sizeable wages Di Canio earns at the County Ground.

However, in a statement released exclusively to the Swindon Advertiser, McCrory has nonsensed the suggestions.

His statement reads: "I feel the need to break the NDA (non-disclosure agreement) due to the breaking story (in the Mirror).

"I have had no contact or conversation, be it email, telephone or any other means, with Mike Newell.

"We are disappointed that people are putting stories together due to the uncertainty over the situation and would like to state we are looking forward to working with Paolo Di Canio and the team going forward.

"We are working tirelessly to bring the purchase of the club to an end to allow all to return to normality. As a football fan I am aware of the need to end this uncertainty as soon as possible."
