THE VIC MORGAN COLUMN: Is the dust finally about to settle at STFC?

AT THE time of writing this particular collection of words, Swindon Town’s prospective new owners were meeting with the Football League.

By the time you read this we should know, or possibly not, the outcome of that meeting.

It seems this deal has taken its time.

That doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing, it’s just frustrating for everyone.

So not being able to foretell the future, I’d like to say A, congratulations and good luck to STFC’s new owners, or B, where do we go from here? There, that should cover both scenarios.

It’s been quite difficult to focus on the football while all this has been going on, hasn’t it?

Endless questions need answering and can’t be till the dust has settled.

So let’s hope that dust finds a home and we can concentrate on a fascinating League One promotion race.

Matt Ritchie’s new friends on the south coast are now setting the pace.

With our former winger at left-back they moved to the top of the table in midweek.

Bournemouth are obvious challengers but another team seems to have slipped under the radar. Yeovil’s win against Preston was their seventh league victory in a row and puts the Glovers right in the mix.

Gary Johnson, along with PDC, gets a manager of the month nomination and has guided his team into a great position.

While the Cherries appear to have lots of money to challenge for the top, Yeovil do not.

One of the most interesting aspects of this season is the managerial contest.

There’s our own man, we hope for a while yet, whose passion and coaching ability cannot be questioned, the experience of Johnson and Ronnie Moore at Tranmere and the apparent chemistry between our former loanee Eddie Howe and the Cherries.

Just how influential is a manager? Well, I think those gentlemen can answer that question.

It also shows that a particular job might just fit one particular person and the grass isn’t always greener.

Yes Paolo, ONE JOB at the RIGHT CLUB. There, I’m sure that’ll influence him.

There’s still a long way to go and bags of twists and turns to come.

Just how crucial those dropped points against Hartlepool will prove, we’ll see at the end of April.

In the meantime, where’s that dust and has it settled yet?

What a pointless article. If the Adver has time to waffle like this saying absolutely nothing, then why not use the time instead to investigate the new owners, what the Football League controls are over forward financial plans, or who tried to put the three loan deals through?
