SWINDON TOWN: New consortium want to work with Di Canio

Swindon Advertiser: Paolo Di Canio Paolo Di Canio

ONE of the members of a consortium poised to take over at Swindon Town has pledged to work with manager Paolo Di Canio when the sale of the club is completed.

Erroneous reports in various national newspapers of late have suggested that Di Canio and the prospective new owners of the Robins have already had a disagreement about the way Town move forward once they take control at the County Ground.

Yesterday, the Daily Mirror went so far as to state that the consortium fronted by Jed McCrory were ready to sack the Italian and replace him with a managerial partnership of Brian Stein and Mike Newell as Di Canio was too expensive to keep on.

However, the Advertiser understands the men looking to buy into the club have yet to meet personally with Di Canio - although his representatives are believed to have spoken to McCrory and other members of the group of new investors.

Despite being constrained by the terms of a non-disclosure agreement, in place until the sale of the club is finalised - which could be as early as tomorrow - McCrory chose to issue a statement exclusively to the Adver in an effort to allay fans’ fears.

It read: “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.”

The five-strong consortium’s takeover of the Robins is imminent, as members of the group await the results of their fit and proper persons test from the Football League.

The Adver has learnt that a sickness bug within the administrative body is partly responsible for the delay in the applications, although the respective parties are still pushing the sale of the club through at an extraordinary rate.

The fact Paolo Di Canio chose not to take questions from the assembled media at Colchester on Tuesday night has given some outlets the ammunition to speculate further regarding his future.

However, the Advertiser understands he will not take any major decision until he has had the chance to meet personally with Swindon’s new owners, as and when the takeover is ratified, to discuss how the club progresses.

Good news from Ged McCrory, thank-you.
With regards to 'newspapers' printing rubbish about our Club, it is 'simples' - don't buy them!!!
Don't buy the Mirror or Football League Paper, it's their loss not ours.

Make sure everyone that can gets to the County Ground this Saturday, we're third in the league & reduced ticket prices!!!

But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with Paolo
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in Swindon now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us this Saturday!

Just re read Paolo's programme notes from the Shrewsbury game.

"What we have achieved so far this season is amazing. Now we want to take things on again and achieve what we set out to do. My word counts more than one thousand contracts. My actions are even more important."

"The best way is to keep getting results. The club is for sale and we must carry on. The determination is there and we are all very committed. The best way is for fans to come here and follow the team. Come here in numbers and persuade those people who have shown interest that the club deserve a stable future. There is a big opportunity here."

Unbeaten in 9, best defence, best attack best goal difference in the league. Do as the manager says and get down to Mecca this Saturday. Messrs Poole and Hartley are in for a thumping.

I'm telling you he ain't leaving these players and us fans until we've won this league.

Back to back to back promotions coming. Watching a managerial legend. Build a statue of him when he takes us to the Premiership...

Once more unto the pitch, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our Swindon Payers.
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of whistle blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
Let pry through the portage of the head
Like the brass cannon; let the brow o'erwhelm it
As fearfully as doth a galled rock
O'erhang and jutty his confounded base,
Swill'd with the wild and wasteful ocean.
Now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide,
Hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit
To his full height. On, on, you noblest Swindon Player.
Whose blood is fet from fathers of war-proof!
Fathers that, like so many Alexanders,
Have in these parts from morn till even fought
And sheathed their boots for lack of argument:
Dishonour not your mothers; now attest
That those whom you call'd fathers did beget you.
Be copy now to men of grosser blood,
And teach them how to play. And you, good defenders,
Whose limbs were made in England, show us here
The mettle of your pasture; let us swear
That you are worth your breeding; which I doubt not;
For there is none of you so mean and base,
That hath not noble lustre in your eyes.
I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game's afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry 'God for Paolo, Swindon, and Promotion!'

Hi there Laz - In a strange way the timing may work well as IF all 3 arrive by the weekend as hoped then he'll have 10 days to work them into the squad between Hartlepool and the trip to Tranmere.

Still no news at this time is good news.
You would feel all should go ok now or at least we all hope it does.
For sayings sake if the FL give the new investors the knock back surely it would be worth AB to fund the club for the last part of the season and just maybe have a Championship Club to SELL.
No guess me dreaming again but who know´s 3rd in table 2 points adrift from top 2 with way better goal average.Still it´s wait and see,again well done to the 300 who made the away trip on a cold cold Tuesday night and is an awful place to get to from Swindon.
Last time i went there was to meet up with a former Town Player Ray Bunkel we won that night 1-0 to avoid relegation oh those days.
As said to you all yesterday if your on the island on Hols come up and see us in Port de Soller will make you wellcome

I have a good feeling all will go through, but AB has made it clear he will no longer fund the club, otherwise why force through the sale?

We've all been guilty of of hearing rumours & speculating, I have no doubt changes will be made, but I think for the good of the club.

As long as the takeover goes through I think we can be very optimistic about the future.

Since there's not much news at the moment, I thought this was an interesting read. MPs and fans' groups meeting to find a solution to more participation between clubs fans. Trouble is now that MPs are involved England will have won the world cup before we get any concrete response!

Like the brass cannon; let the brow o'erwhelm it
As fearfully as doth a galled rock
O'erhang and jutty his confounded base,
Swill'd with the wild and wasteful ocean.
Now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide,
Hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit
To his full height. On, on, you noblest Swindon Player.
Whose blood is fet from fathers of war-proof!
Fathers that, like so many Alexanders,
Have in these parts from morn till even fought
And sheathed their boots for lack of argument:
Dishonour not your mothers; now attest
That those whom you call'd fathers did beget you.
Be copy now to men of grosser blood,
And teach them how to play. And you, good defenders,
Whose limbs were made in England, show us here
The mettle of your pasture; let us swear
That you are worth your breeding; which I doubt not;
For there is none of you so mean and base,
That hath not noble lustre in your eyes.
I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game's afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry 'God for Paolo, Swindon, and Promotion!'
FOR SWINDON, ENGLAND AND PAOLO!

WE WILL FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT AS BROTHERS IN ARMS!

RED ARMY!

Well if you are expecting the people of Wiltshire to leave their comfy armchairs and go to the C.G then you have lost the plot.
Not my words but the words of another regular poster who would have had Richard Money as manager.

I'm with you biker, if Wiltshire people want a top footie club then they should get down to the ground and support the maestro and his boys.
Forget what has happened in the past and live for today, today we have a great manager who loves the club despite the troubles. We also have a great team and we could possbly go top on Saturday but I predict at least second.

...and if the worst happens and Paolo leaves for whatever reason, I hope people remember that we are Swindon fans first and foremost, and the players still need their support more than ever. It's nonsense when some posters on here have said they'll stay away if he goes. It's STFC as a whole that we support through 'thick and thin' and, as you say, as 'brothers in arms' who don't give up.

At this moment in time it is always a bit worrying to wonder just who these new consortium members are and hope that they are all in it for the football club, the brilliant manager, the team, and most importantly us the fans. The dark days of Brady flying around in his chopper (helicopter that is) and the blood sucking leach Diamantes blimey remember him are all still too clear in the memory and we certainly do not need any rubbish like that running our club.
I will also apologize if I offended anyone last night with my postings and I was just trying to create some light relief from the waiting and waiting and waiting which one or two found to be too much for them to bare. My thoughts are it was getting far too serious on this forum lately and too many arguments and wind ups going on so just wanted to provide some entertainment.
Still we wait and now it appears the sick bug could be holding matters up and yes it seems to be always us at dear old Swindon Town or feels like that. The prayer mat is out in that the consortium are all good guys and pass the test then we can get down to trying to keep the best manager STFC have ever had. Come all Town fans we need to show Paolo and the new consortium that this club is worth saving and turn out in droves on Saturday and sing our hearts out.

Message from Sir Winston Churchill to Paolo and Jed and others-(Meeting today)

We are met together at a time when great exertions and a high constancy are required from all who cherish and sustain the Swindon cause.

Difficulties surround us and dangers threaten from this side and from that. Exultant enemies are gathering: weak friends are nervous or disheartened. Voices are raised in counsels, both equally unwise, of impatience or of lassitude.

From such a situation Paolo and the new Board, you may emerge triumphant, but to do that there will have to be, in leaders and in followers, shrewd clear plans of action, true stout-hearted comradeship, and unwearying determination!

In Paolo we trust! Be there Saturday and tell him "We are Swindon and we are going up"!

(another from the Doc"s diaries)

Sales are looking much better today with the club currently expecting between 9000 and 9500. Come on people do your bit!! Bring your Granny (and her best mate) They will understand that STFC need them more than Gala Saturday afternoon. Lets fill it for Paolo!!! What better message of unity and support than that? We must believe that we can make the difference. We may never get this chance again.......
Agreed...this is a big opportunity for fans young and old to show solidarity!! Let's pack it!!!
It would also be great if everyone remained at the end of the game to applaud the players and Paolo off the pitch.

Would be really nice to see, regardless of the result, and will help us show our respect for what they have acheived so far.

That would be same paper which used to be owned by ex-Oxford Utd chairman Robert Maxwell?

The answer - Swindon fans - is obvious.. Don't buy the Mirror or Sunday Mirror because you'll be helping to fund the same papers who've been stirring things up about PDC being pushed out..

To be promoted, or not to be promoted: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous press,
Or to take arms against a sea of jounalists,
And by opposing end them? To win: to draw;
No more; and by a win to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, 'tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish'd. To draw, to win;
To promotion: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub;

Another day of agony or even the thought of this going on until next week does not bode well for the three possible new arrivals.

Looking forward to Saturday as well. Don't manage to get to all the games, having lived in Spain for 8 years and now living away from Swindon, but I'll be there tomorrow with my 87 year old father. He was diagnosed with cancer over 2 years ago but has still managed to make virtually every game since then, apart from the last two home matches when he was back in hospital.

I am convinced that his love of all things STFC (me too!) has kept him going. I've already told him he has to at least hang on for the promotion party!!

......Paolo, you have a duty to my father to see the job through - don't go!!

BBC Sport are acrrying an interview with John Hughes, manager of Hartlepool. Just love his description of PDC......

Referring to the siege mentality that PDC is creating at SN1, he said:

"He could start a fight in an empty house but he's clever enough to know how to use that."

You bet he is, and just wait until Saturday to find out......

Paolo, please stay!

Nice to see tickets selling and would be great for full house as in all our remaining games would support the club financially no end.
Still money is tight as it is Global we also have problems out here even Mallorca have reduced ticket price.
Yes we await the saga has the takeover been Ratified??????
I see Port Vale was mentioned that took time but they were in Administration,and Poor old Pompey Fans what has Football become.Used to be rich and poor now even the mega teams have money problems

Completely off topic... A Colchester mate of mine has sent me the programme from Tuesday's game. Not surprisingly it was actually the programme from the original fixture date but it included an 8 page update and a professionally printed teamsheet insert. I thought the whole thing was of excellent quality. Although I don't buy programmes very often these days I do know ours is good as I did get one earlier in the season. I just wondered whether any Town fans who went on Tuesday have a view on the Colchester programme. How does it (and ours)compare with others around the country nowadays?

Would it not just be the best week end ever if we get the nod for the takeover, we find out that the consortium have some real money, Paolo has an agreeable meeting with the new owners & commits to the end of the season & the three or at least two players arrive at the County Ground.

Icing on the cake would be –
A full house (more than happy with 12,000) & victory against Hartlepool at The County Ground on Saturday.

I still haven't had an answer to my last question to guv, days ago. Mmmmm I wonder why?.

Good to read a thread with most people feeling a lot more optimistic,all we need now is for all the previously hooked fish to steer clear of Guv`s bait (little maggot),conformation that our new incoming owners are up to and up for the responsibility of running our great club with the help of our truly marvellous manager.Give me the news i'm ready to go on one and celebrate.

Even more reason for fans to get down the CG on Saturday!!!!
Should be easily 10,000 Saturday.
Everybody should also have red and white scarf's at the ready,i will be bring mine despite the fact i don't normally wear them.
Then just after kick off everybody should stand up scarf's aloft and sing his name.
Everyone should stand up with scarfs aloft on the 10 min mark as that is PDC shirt number.

lleaguenews/20130207
/portsmouth-statemen
t_2293334_3068475

Basically told the Administrators to get on with it, go forward with the Supporters Trust bid, otherwise Pompey will lose its league membership.
*
Shows how long these things can take - the FL are saying there is not enough time for a new bid to go forward, get negotiated, accepted and ratified by the start of next season (a club cannot enter two seasons consecutively in Administration)

Interesting to hear the Premier League's proposals for cracking down on clubs' overspending

http://www1.skysport
s.com/football/news/
11678/8478278?

I've been banging on for years about docking points for posting excessive operating losses.

And securing budgeted losses against owners' assets would have prevented the situation we have suffered at Swindon this past month. Although it is arguable whether investors will want to get involved as much under new, stricter financial criteria.

The biggest compliment you can pay Paolo and the team is (as many have mentioned above):
STAY UNTIL THE PLAYERS LEAVE THE PITCH!!!....HOLD YOUR SCARFS ALOFT AND CHANT FOR STFC AND PAOLO....
...Don't leave 5mins before because it save you 10 mins in the car or bus! .....stay and give the team and PAOLO every bit of support he can possibly get.

Depends on the t&cs of the NDA. They mainly prevent disclosure of any details of the business that would not otherwise be in the public domain. They also usually prevent disclosure of the terms of any deal.

Apparently the Football League didn't have any objection in principle to Keith Harris's consortium, but they did object to him having his hand up Orville's bottom all the time.

Hi Wellsy, how spooky is that - I also support Swindon and Blackburn and to reply to Madterrier (6.22pm) I was born in Swindon and Dad/family from Blackburn so go and watch both teams when can.


And yes Venkys are not fit and proper but cannot describe them on a site like this which might possibly be read by children.
Wow!! I was born, bred and still live in Swindon, yet my Dad lives in Blackburn!! We watch Rovers when I visit and I occasionally watch Town too, however I SUPPORT both teams..

Just out of interest a nice bit from the Pool manager on the BBC site:
.
Former defender Hughes played with Di Canio at Celtic in 1996 and has fond memories of their time together - "He's an infectious, passionate character who wears his heart on his sleeve - everything he does is for the team," he said.
"At Celtic he loved the place. That's him, its not an act, he's just an honest guy.
"He could start a fight in an empty house but he's clever enough to know how to use that.
----
That'll be PDC then!! :-)

Live near Peterborough so matches can get to based on that, but become bit disillusioned with what owners are doing to club at Blackburn and as more Swindon games reachable from here tend to go see them more.

Not sure how that works that they can and we can't.

I expect the Football League have a whole team dedicated to the Portsmouth saga which is why they can't spare us 5 minutes.

If it is really correct that the takeover cannot go through due to staff sickness at the Football League, that is nothing short of an absolute disgrace!!

This could delay, if not destroy the whole deal and ultimately put us in administration.

As an aside, it potentially sinks the loan deals and the Wright-Phillips lad from Charlton in particular, whose goals would take us to automatic promotion.

STAY UNTIL THE PLAYERS LEAVE THE PITCH!!!....HOLD YOUR SCARFS ALOFT AND CHANT FOR STFC AND PAOLO....
...Don't leave 5mins before because it save you 10 mins in the car or bus! .....stay and give the team and PAOLO every bit of support he can possibly get.

COME ON STFC FANS!!!...just for one game at least!
Agreed SAP. This is a real bug bear of mine and annoys me more each season as fans leave in droves, irrespective of the score just to get away three minutes quicker. Complete lack of respect.

Comes to something when away fans start singing 'is there a fire drill' at our lot even though it is them that is getting hammered. Disgraceful.

Looking forward to Saturday as well. Don't manage to get to all the games, having lived in Spain for 8 years and now living away from Swindon, but I'll be there tomorrow with my 87 year old father. He was diagnosed with cancer over 2 years ago but has still managed to make virtually every game since then, apart from the last two home matches when he was back in hospital.

I am convinced that his love of all things STFC (me too!) has kept him going. I've already told him he has to at least hang on for the promotion party!!

......Paolo, you have a duty to my father to see the job through - don't go!!
Well i hope you and your Father have a great day and that he gets to see his football club lift the league trophy,truly inspiring to know a man of his age that's fighting that horrible disease still finds the energy(or gets energy from it) to support his and our football team.Enjoy the game the pair of you.
Steve,

Very, very nice thoughts of yours to Onceared and his Father, who you and I would both understand. Very best wishes to both of them and I hope the snow stays away.
Cheers Joey B, you are spot on my friend.

As for you other lot there is only one of me,something that my missus is only to pleased about.
Must go i'm feeling a little hoarse and don't want to talk pony and trap.

Infamy infamy, joey they all have it infamy.

If it is really correct that the takeover cannot go through due to staff sickness at the Football League, that is nothing short of an absolute disgrace!!

This could delay, if not destroy the whole deal and ultimately put us in administration.

As an aside, it potentially sinks the loan deals and the Wright-Phillips lad from Charlton in particular, whose goals would take us to automatic promotion.
MK Dons now after danny Green,pack deal still on,don't know about bwp?has Steve might say?it's a load of spectactles,testical

I suppose the only excuse could be if the STFC takeover is one persons project, and they've done the legwork to date and now off sick it's not really worth someone new taking it on.

Although how this is taking so long in any case is a bit odd. I'm sure Jed and the consortium are readily available to take any questions the FL auditor may have and will have any number of references ready to be checked out.

Not that I want to stir things up... but seriously... "a sickness bug" is holding this up??
You couldn't justify this in any other credible business environment... so why should we put up with it here??

It's easily possible that any FL dept dealing with takeover compliance is relatively small. People would be moaning if they had a team of 10 or 20 people sat around doing nothing except when a club is being taken over, so it's possible that it is literally only one or two people. If they're doing it probably, it's presumably a bit specialised, or needs some specialised financial input, not just a box-ticking admin bod.
