Town takeover moves closer after positive talks with Football League

Swindon Advertiser: Jed McCrory (right) Jed McCrory (right)

THE takeover of Swindon Town could be completed as early as tomorrow following extremely positive talks with the Football League, the Advertiser understands.

The prospective new owners travelled to Preston yesterday to meet with League bosses, where positives talks were held as Jed McCrory’s consortium laid out their financial model for the club for the next three years.

While the takeover was not officially rubberstamped the Advertiser understands the deal could be ratified tomorrow, at which time the new board of directors including McCrory, Martin King, Gary Hooper and Steve Murrall will be allowed take the reins at the County Ground.

However, even if the deal is ratified tomorrow, the Advertiser understands none of the parties involved in the proposed takeover of the club will be able to speak publicly until after the weekend.

At that point the Football League should allow Town to sign players once again, after manager Paolo Di Canio missed out on Cheltenham’s Marlon Pack and Danny Green and Bradley Wright- Phillips of Charlton at the end of the January window.

The Football League were not willing to ratify the deals despite terms being agreed, and although it is thought Town remain interested in the trio, it is not yet known whether the players will still be moving to the County Ground once the takeover is complete.

Pack returned to the Cheltenham side for the Robins’ 2-1 away win at Southend on Tuesday night, and despite admitting he would still be open to a move to Swindon, remains in a state of limbo after manager Mark Yates revealed he wants to keep his playmaker at Whaddon Road until the end of the season.

The Advertiser understands Green is now a target of MK Dons, while Wright-Phillips’ future remains up in the air.

Good grief! I cannot believe this saga.
Am I being too simplistic (?), as here is how I would expect a League meeting to go:
Meet the prospective new owners in person.
Ask them their financial model for next 3 years.
If sums don't add up, ask additional questions til sums do add up.
Continue in that fashion til ALL and ANY questions that need answers have been 100% answered
= NO MORE QUESTIONS
= DEAL APPROVED.

It disgraceful how the FL has allowed this to drag on for so long and disrespectful to our club and supporters, and while this farce rumbles along our rivals have been signing players while we have not been allowed to strengthen which is very unfair!! But as we are Swindon I would be surprised if those idiots treated us any other way?

Lazaat, don't think in any way that the time being taken is down to the Football League. It's down to the time it took "Patsy Patey" to follow instructions from "CrackerBlack" to get new owners in place. When they did finally identify interested parties i'm pretty sure the diligence the current owners did was on the lines of "who can get Cracker the best deal in the shortest time". If the FL didn't do things professionally from their end and we ended up stuffed - then we would have cause to criticise them

To be honest 3-4 weeks for a take-over at a club is not a long time in fact its quite quick.

Yes we have been treated badly in the past by the football league when we were demoted two divisions and then appealed and got demoted 1 division but not this time.

That's my question for the day too. Hope someone can clear it up for us. Have to say I am more concerned for the medium term so if it takes a few more days to do a proper job so be it. After all Sam would only have the feedback from one side.

Not the slightest bit interested in Bournemouth steadyeddie1 i know alot of Bournemouth fans who have been bombarding me with texts to my phone since you signed Ritchie. You lot are sounding as though you have already won the league.

The facts are some of your players will get edgy and nervous you will have a poor game here and there and drop points as will all other teams and i think it will go to the wire for automatic promotion. If we can get our loan players in by all means do not count us out of it. There will be freak results for all sides to come.

Yes we have been treated badly in the past by the football league when we were demoted two divisions and then appealed and got demoted 1 division but not this time.

Perhaps im the only one on here who thinks like this but if you want to find out about takeovers then please look at this site http://www.footballe

We want the best for our club its fustrating i know but lets be patient a little longer...
No Tel, you are not the only one who thinks like this. I don't understand all the complaints. Does anyone actually know how long these things normally take? Far from being annoyed, I'm very pleased that the League is looking at the deal carefully.
Its difficult Port Vale bidder Keith Ryder but in his bid to take over in April 12 and it was rejected in September, but Port Vale were in Admin.
To be honest there will be lawyers etc involved and paperwork as you know does take time. Think of how long a solicitor takes when buying a house.

Im hoping that this consortium has a silent backer with money as i dont think they are cash rich as i put on another thread.

To be honest though we should be looking as a club to sustain ourselves on attendances and marketing the club further afield in Wiltshire & Gloucestershire to attract more of a fan base.

Im just really gutted about the timing of this which has affected the squad and the selling of our best player.

Same old Swindon im afraid but lets hope the future is brighter.

I would imagine the Fl are taking the long term view to try and protect Stfc as we have been in administration before.
If we were to go in again then the penalties on the club would be far greater than before and quite rightly so.
To many clubs have had an attitude of spend spend spend to try and achieve success and ultimately they cannot sustain it and risk their future existence, Portsmouth for example.
I would prefer a club that is run sustainably and is there for years to come, hopefully competively.
As for this season we are in the mix and expect us to be there or there abouts at end of season, thanks mainly to the manager and his methods.
In Paolo we trust!

Yes comfortably. Maybe the inexperience of youth but for me they were the best Swindon side that I have watched. However they were broken up before they were really tested so they could not be called the most successful team. Well umpcah that little trip was enjoyable while it lasted. Another cup of tea called for I think.

The fact is that this takeover has been rushed through and not dragged out as some believe. These things sometimes take months so lets be happy that it IS going to happen.

Only other good news I'm waiting for is the transfer embargo to be lifted and that Paolo is gonna stay, at least until the end of the season.

Regarding the gloating abuse from certain Bournemouth fans. I am from Swindon, and have supported the club all my life. However, I have lived in the Bournemouth and Poole area for thirty two years. So, while I don't much care, generally, whether AFCB win, lose or draw, I felt sympathetic towards them when they were going through very similar traumas to our current problems. As I recall, Charlie Austin would have signed for Bournemouth but for the fact that there was a transfer embargo on the club at that time!
So, Bournemouth have (apparently) landed on their feet with the influx of Russian millions. Well good for them, though it was east European 'investment' which set Pompey up for their fall. I would suggest that abusive Cherries fans just bear in mind where they have so recently come from.
Those who can't bring themselves to show a bit of generosity of spirit are, and you can tell this by the tenor of their semi-literate outpourings, cowardly saddos who wouldn't say Bournemouth boo to a Swindon goose down the pub or, particularly, in the pub car park. They should be despised as they deserve.

Sure enough at 08.00 this morning we all showed up at the golf course. Macca says this game has cost me the price of a brand new BMW convertable, Wee Simon says yeah and it's cost me a 3 month cruise around the caribean, Wardie shakes his head and says it's cost me a diamond ring the size of an egg.
I stood there laughing and shook my head " You guys crack me up, I woke up this morning slapped my wifes ar5e and said intercourse or golf course to which she replied Don't forget your sweater "

Andrew Black had a very big pot, and we all know how that turned out. We were sold the dream of Championship football, and we still might achieve that, but the most important thing is that the club is still around in 5,10, 50, 100 years time.

The new board clearly have a plan and none of us know what it is yet, so let's give them a chance. If it's a Fitton-style sustainability model they are lookign for, then I'll take that over the boom and (almost) bust we've seen recently due to the club being dependent on a sugar daddy.

Every league club runs up debts and like it or not it's part and parcel of the roller coaster that is football, and if Swindon ever decided to be the odd one out and really started living within it's means and were sustainable long term in the proper sense of making a profit every season, we would either be non league in a few seasons or be a league two team somewhere near the bottom, so I think I'll pass on this reality and would rather have a board with some cash to put in and who want to continuing playing the game, rather then be waiting for Mike Newell's autograph on a match day.

As has been said already we all want confirmation the takeover is finalised and i know were all impatient so we can all move on and worry about what happens on the pitch but the takeover has been a rapid process as normally it would take alot longer than it has so we must all count ourselves lucky when it is finalised.

Paolo can get his players in he wants hopefully and then we can start to catch up and overtake the cherriesat the top of the table.
It would be nice to win the league but 2nd i would be happy with. After our last play off final last time i dont want to go through that again.

If football does not start looking after itself soon, the whole thing will go t1ts up. The first thing that needs to be done is to reduce the ridiculous amounts of money being paid to players, starting at the top. It is the sole reason that the likes of Portsmouth and Rangers ended up in so much sh1t.

We all felt comfortable in the knowledge that our consortium was happy to keep funding our losses - that is until we found out they weren't so happy to do it after all. It shouldn't really have been any great surprise that throwing money away was not a hobby they'd want to indulge in for the rest of their lives.

Here`s a question for older fans ! Do you think Bert Head`s Babes would`ve won this league as it is now ? By the way County ground cuppas were better in those days !
Very difficult to compare teams from a different era, however when I cast my mind back to those halcyon days it just brings a smile to my face & a warm glow comes over me.

I remember as a kid paying my two bob to enter via the town end & you could walk around the ground & stand anywhere you liked. I used to climb the stantions in the old Aldershot tatto stand & marvel at the likes of Mike Summerbee racing down the right wing with that unique stle of his. Legs fully outstretched, slightly bandy when in full flight, almost the opposite of how Shane Long runs. Then of course there was the era of the baseball boots when our pitch was more like Weston-Super-Mare & we would run rings around the opposition playing in traditional boots.

We did of course have money troubles back then but for me it was an age of innocence so hence knew nothing of them. Although I do remember Buzzer, Hunt & Co digging graves to give them money during the summer.

You mention the tea & I try to explain to my grandson that you could stand in the middle of the terraces pass your six pence to the person in front to pass on all the way to the guy with the tea urn walking around the pitch, he would give the tea & change to the person at the front & both would be passed back to you via the same route. I can tell by the look on his face that he finds it hard to comprehend.

I will end there through fear of boring our younger posters however it would be nice to meet up one day in The Legends & chat about old times.

I will end there through fear of boring our younger posters however it would be nice to meet up one day in The Legends & chat about old times. NewburyRobin

How do you reach the conlusion that a profitable club would struggle at the wrong end of league two or drop out of the league altogether? It doesn't add up.

If football does not start looking after itself soon, the whole thing will go t1ts up. The first thing that needs to be done is to reduce the ridiculous amounts of money being paid to players, starting at the top. It is the sole reason that the likes of Portsmouth and Rangers ended up in so much sh1t.

We all felt comfortable in the knowledge that our consortium was happy to keep funding our losses - that is until we found out they weren't so happy to do it after all. It shouldn't really have been any great surprise that throwing money away was not a hobby they'd want to indulge in for the rest of their lives.
Very very soon IMHO and as nasty as it sounds it might do football the power of good for a Premier League side to go under.
Because as it stands right now,i would love to see Swindon in the Premier League again but it would also mean it would be very doubtful i could go to any of the games.

Agreed.Football needs a reality check.In my humble opinion one of the main reasons this all got out of hand is Sky as in simplistic terms,everyone who subscribes to Sky whether a football fan or not feeds the coffers of the Antipodean megalomaniac.
I have pulled my subscription-maybe a futile act-but if everyone did it then there goes the sponsorship money in one hit,all the ridiculous salaries unsustainable and everything implodes and then everyone starts from scratch.Oops-another pig has hit the guttering

One of the things we can do as supporters, if we want a say in how our club is run, is to join the Trust and donate to the Red Army Fund. Swansea's Trust owns 20% of their club, so it's not a pipe dream.

Swindon is not a profitable club, and I not sure people who have asked for the club to be sustainable long term really understand what that would involve, and the question I ask is if Swindon who on average lose about a million quid a year were to start living within it means and be truly self serving, then what would be it's position in the football pyramid in five years? if the artificiality increased gates where reduced to about 4500 in a few years after the current players and management had all left as the club could not afford them, and I also believe town are at disadvantage compared to other clubs to start with as a proportion of the gate money has to paid direct to the council as they own the lease, then where would we be in five years?

Modern football is survival of the fittest and I'm not convinced that trying to make Swindon sustainable is the way to go, the club needs someone with hard cash to invest to get the club where it needs to be, Black had the right idea until he changed his mind.

Correct, Swindon is not a profitable club. So surely the question should be how can we make it profitable, rather than looking for the next person prepared to throw millions of pounds away for a few years before leaving us in the lurch?

Whether it's a new/redeveloped ground to generate more income, or improving the youth set-up to cultivate the next Nick Powell or Wilfried Zaha, surely that's better for the long term future of the club than trying to find yet another benefactor with deep pockets who could walk away/die/lose his fortune at any time?

The facts are some of your players will get edgy and nervous you will have a poor game here and there and drop points as will all other teams and i think it will go to the wire for automatic promotion. If we can get our loan players in by all means do not count us out of it. There will be freak results for all sides to come.

If the FL are really conducting a rigorous investigation into the new owners' plans in order to assess their viability then I would not mind the wait. However, I am not confident that they are doing this, there have been too many instances of disastrous takeovers to have much confidence in their assessment. Unless we are witnessing a new dawn.
*
As to comments about the sustainability of the club (one of my favourite themes), as has been pointed out the club will find it much harder to progress if it lives within its means. A smaller playing budget means less flexibility in the transfer market and inevitably the better players will move on for better wages.

AF came very close to squaring this circle, but of course another aspect of sustainability is cashing in on one's most valuable assets (Cox, Austin). This also makes progress harder.

Correct, Swindon is not a profitable club. So surely the question should be how can we make it profitable, rather than looking for the next person prepared to throw millions of pounds away for a few years before leaving us in the lurch?

Whether it's a new/redeveloped ground to generate more income, or improving the youth set-up to cultivate the next Nick Powell or Wilfried Zaha, surely that's better for the long term future of the club than trying to find yet another benefactor with deep pockets who could walk away/die/lose his fortune at any time?
This has gone full circle now and you have answered your own question, the only board members of any use at the club going forward are those who have and are willing to invest millions in the club and stadium development, as the trying to sustain the club in it's current format is a false economy.

The selling of players is an interesting point as I don't think the long term sustainability of a football club can hinge on this hope as you never know what might happen is football, as is living in the hope that the manager can recruit quality players on a regular basis from non league, a flawed outlook based on pipe dreams that might never happens.

If your assumptions are correct then how the hell are Yeovil, Stevenage, Leyton Orient, Walsall, Crew even competing in League 1 on a third of the gates we get ? and also some even running at a profit. The model we have at moment and have had for a number of years is about spending beyond our means letting youth players go without even giving them a chance with golden pot of the Championship at the end of the rainbow. The problem is when you dont get there year after year you get into trouble especially when you dont have a marquee player to sell to balance the books each season.
Sustainability does not always mean sub standard but from where we are at the moment to get there could mean sub standard for a number of years unless we can re-develop the ground and increase revenue especially non matchdays.

I don't know the situation of the club's you have mentioned but how many have made a profit two years in a row and not just a one off because of player sales or a cup run? I would have a guess not many, and if Swindon started supplying the same standard of players and management as those teams did for three seasons or so, gradually we would end up getting similar sized gates, and then the comparison is how many of those clubs own their ground and don't have to give a percentage of the gate receipts to the local council every week which gives Swindon a very big handicap to start with in the dream of Sustainability.

The model we have at moment and have had for a number of years is about spending beyond our means letting youth players go without even giving them a chance with golden pot of the Championship at the end of the rainbow. The problem is when you dont get there year after year you get into trouble especially when you dont have a marquee player to sell to balance the books each season. Sustainability does not always mean sub standard but from where we are at the moment to get there could mean sub standard for a number of years unless we can re-develop the ground and increase revenue especially non matchdays.[/p][/quote]I don't know the situation of the club's you have mentioned but how many have made a profit two years in a row and not just a one off because of player sales or a cup run?

So still no news?????
Was out with a friend who is a Director of Burnley FC,Fact is when Howe was at Burnley they put in a bid way above what Bournemouth made.Still like all is in the the past just feel Pdc is in never never land at times.
Charlie Austin will go at the end of the season as they fey felt few more goals would increase there value on him.Plus he said give the Town a few more $$$$$
At the end of the day Swindons problem is they have no assets the ground is the Councils.
You wuld have thought Swindindon Council would have either given the club the right to buy the CG.
My fear is until they redevlop somewhere else The Town will allways have Financial probs.
These new guys if it comes off have a hard job.As for Fans all they can do is fill the CG with Bums on seats otherwise the club is Doomed.
We were fotunate with Af/AB and previous invevestors.So time to get real.Unless we get serious money the Town will not survive

No, I'm sorry but without mega money being spent I just can't see any way forward, and if it turns out these guys coming in don't have any real money, I would of rather Black turned the club over to the trust, as what's the difference, I won't be happy with this takeover until I see where the cash is coming from.

I see you've reverted to knocking the manager again. What has Burnley making an offer got to do with Di Canio being in "never never land"?

The reason for Ritchie being sold to Bournemouth last month has been well documented - Black wasn't prepared to put any more money into the club and Bournemouth offered cash up front, which was needed to keep the club going until the takeover was complete. The choice was Ritchie or administration.

As for the Council just feel in recent bad times just maybe they could have supported the club.
as for Riritchie yes if he had not gone who know´s what???your right admin.
All i´m saying Swindon is a big Town and if the down hard supporters did not go through the gates there would be mega probs.Not knocking Pdc what he has done has been great however at what COST.
Not a question of knocking him,but you just look if this takeover does happen and the new Board really look to cost cutting he may just walk.For me I hope he does the business and gets the Town up as CHAMPIONS however life is a **** at times.

How do you reach the conlusion that a profitable club would struggle at the wrong end of league two or drop out of the league altogether? It doesn't add up.
I think it does in our case. We don't get the income from crowds needed to support the wages we pay. Lower wages would mean lower quality players, which generally mean lower position in the league.

Not rocket science.

Those who can't bring themselves to show a bit of generosity of spirit are, and you can tell this by the tenor of their semi-literate outpourings, cowardly saddos who wouldn't say Bournemouth boo to a Swindon goose down the pub or, particularly, in the pub car park. They should be despised as they deserve.
Mick.
It's tw@ts like you that ruin the lovely towns of Bournemouth & Poole. Tell me, exactly which pub is it you drink in.
I have worked with many Swindon supporters over the years and generally find them to be very gobby, but when you stand up to them they normally shut-it and shy away so behave yourself.
Shut up KNOB
Just cos youre in a coastal town doesnt mean its lovely, far from it full of ignorant blue rinse CLINTS who run you down in motorised scooters and pick pockets preying on those who visit for the day.
Go away Eddie, by the way i know handles or names on here are all fictional fun or work/hobby orientated but please tell me steady eddie one for the road you are a Stobbart fan and spend your spare time watching from motorway gantries. HA HA HA sad individual, probably dont get to watch football as your always out collecting fancy truck names and registrations. Still at least youve moved on from trains you pathetic idle shat stain. By the way you dont bother me coming on here I just dont like you, you vile creature.

Steady Eddie,

I have to say, i do love your enthusiasm for coming onto another teams site and posting so many comments.

However, I do feel that your constant profanities do you no favours when you are trying to allude how much more intelligent you are than people from Swindon. Generally the use of constant swearing masks someone who's vocabulary is clearly lacking.

As you will see from my username, I too live in Bournemouth, have been in and around the area for over 25 years despite originally coming from Wiltshire. However, I am rather concerned with your comments about people from Swindon ruining lovely towns like Bournemouth and Poole. I have lived in the area long enough to know that no self respecting Bournmouthite (or however you wish to describe people from Bournemouth) would NEVER describe Poole as a lovely town. Anyone in Bournemouth clearly knows that Poole is a dump (yes I'm excluding Branksome Park and Pennhill !!). Therefore it leads me to doubt your levels of intelligence when you make such a statement. Or is it possible that you are just from such a desirable area as Hamworthy or Upper Parkstone and are trying to big up such lovely areas to live??

Why are you here anyway? I don't know, maybe you don't have any friends to hang out with over the half term, I don't know and don't particularly care. By all means feel free spend hours reading and posting on a site not designed for your team, personally I enjoy the more reasoned banter and comments from other teams fans. However do yourself a favour and try to make a sensible post instead of constant profanities and insults.

I expect this post will receive more abuse from you which will only prove my doubts of you correct, I hope you prove me wrong and post something worthwhile.

Good day to you, enjoy the season.
PS - I drink in the Pines and the Strouden Arms if you really do wish to follow through with your threats!!

If football does not start looking after itself soon, the whole thing will go t1ts up.

It is the sole reason that the likes of Portsmouth and Rangers ended up in so much sh1t. . We all felt comfortable in the knowledge that our consortium was happy to keep funding our losses - that is until we found out they weren't so happy to do it after all. It shouldn't really have been any great surprise that throwing money away was not a hobby they'd want to indulge in for the rest of their lives.
Spot on.

One of the things we can do as supporters, if we want a say in how our club is run, is to join the Trust and donate to the Red Army Fund. Swansea's Trust owns 20% of their club, so it's not a pipe dream.
Totally, utterly and completely agree. Does anyone no what the Trust are doing? Never seems to be anything new on the website.

Super Mario TV, do you have any other suggestions for the club's long-term stability other than hoping someone else is willing to spend millions of pounds of their own money?
No, I'm sorry but without mega money being spent I just can't see any way forward, and if it turns out these guys coming in don't have any real money, I would of rather Black turned the club over to the trust, as what's the difference, I won't be happy with this takeover until I see where the cash is coming from.
While I hear where you're coming from, and no-one would hiss at a rich owner wanting to squander their money if it means squandering it on OUR club, football in this country really does need to look at itself and balance the books at an aggregate level.

It's way, way out of control, and the PL proposal of bringing in points penalties for operating losses in excess of £105 million over three years, sets the bar too generously high. We need the football authorities to be strong and make sure it's a level playing field and the penalties are rigorous, otherwise people will carry on chancing it if the downside is only 10 points and a load of other people left owed money.

What is interesting though is the Trust angle that you mentioned. We ought to aspire towards elements of German football (the 50+1 financial model, where controlling ownership is in the hands of club members), although it's not quite the panacea it's made out to be in the media.

If Mr Black has effectively written off his debt and given away 75% of his shares for a notional sum (but we don't know this yet), then it would have been nice if he had written it off and given 51% ownership to the Trust, or some other Swindon supporters/club members vehicle.

Now that WOULD have been a spectacular legacy instead of a car crash.

That all said, I don't know whether the trusts in this country are ready or have the necessary expertise to mirror that of supporters' clubs in Germany.

Still, there's enough expertise on this forum. LR could look after the accounts, Wizard could handle pre-match entertainment, Grim perhaps a PR role. Maybe J.Wray as a supporter could help out...

If football does not start looking after itself soon, the whole thing will go t1ts up. The first thing that needs to be done is to reduce the ridiculous amounts of money being paid to players, starting at the top. It is the sole reason that the likes of Portsmouth and Rangers ended up in so much sh1t. . We all felt comfortable in the knowledge that our consortium was happy to keep funding our losses - that is until we found out they weren't so happy to do it after all. It shouldn't really have been any great surprise that throwing money away was not a hobby they'd want to indulge in for the rest of their lives.
Spot on. One of the things we can do as supporters, if we want a say in how our club is run, is to join the Trust and donate to the Red Army Fund. Swansea's Trust owns 20% of their club, so it's not a pipe dream.
Totally, utterly and completely agree. Does anyone no what the Trust are doing? Never seems to be anything new on the website.
And if the club is losing £200K a month, £2.4m pa is the 20% fan ownership expected to contribute £480Kpa???

If football does not start looking after itself soon, the whole thing will go t1ts up.

Spot on. One of the things we can do as supporters, if we want a say in how our club is run, is to join the Trust and donate to the Red Army Fund. Swansea's Trust owns 20% of their club, so it's not a pipe dream.
Totally, utterly and completely agree. Does anyone no what the Trust are doing? Never seems to be anything new on the website.
And if the club is losing £200K a month, £2.4m pa is the 20% fan ownership expected to contribute £480Kpa???

It's a good idea but a "fan model" only works when balancing the books or making a profit unless of course the fans were happy to risk losing their 20%... I also doubt 20% gives you much say
It depends on the deal struck. It could be that if the club is losing that much then rather than the supporter's share helping to bank roll the deficit, the value of its it's shares would diminish in tandem with the amount the main investor was propping the Club up.

But your point is a good one. The key words in the paragraph above are 'propping the Club up'.

Whether that is a rich person with more money than sense, an ambitious TV compnay or anything else, I think most of us can twig that this isn't going to last. On that basis, when financial Armageddon does eventually come I'd like to be (as a real investor in this wonderful Club of ours) in some position of influence.

Call me naive (and I'd struggle to argue with you) but I can't really think of anything better at present.

Talking with a Banbury fan (they do have a few) he was surprised Jed is supposedly interested in Swindon as 'he doesn't strike you as a person with the money needed to be taken seriously by a side like Swindon.'

I think this lot are chancers, and if AB and co are reading this I would say drop them like a shot as they are time-wasting (ours and theirs).

If I had £8m or whatever amount needed to buy Swindon Town FC (sorry, I am going on Football Manager figures) then I would have stuck it in a bond or deposit account so it could be transferred into the club's bank account in days. Yes, the club would have to run background checks, but these are standard and only take a few days.

So it is possible to complete a deal pretty quickly. There really is no excuse unless they have no money and are trying to run the moron Box and Bournemouth fans close in an attention whore contest.

Either cough up or sod off.
Talking with a Banbury fan (they do have a few) he was surprised Jed is supposedly interested in Swindon as 'he doesn't strike you as a person with the money needed to be taken seriously by a side like Swindon.' I think this lot are chancers, and if AB and co are reading this I would say drop them like a shot as they are time-wasting (ours and theirs). If I had £8m or whatever amount needed to buy Swindon Town FC (sorry, I am going on Football Manager figures) then I would have stuck it in a bond or deposit account so it could be transferred into the club's bank account in days. Yes, the club would have to run background checks, but these are standard and only take a few days. So it is possible to complete a deal pretty quickly.

Those who can't bring themselves to show a bit of generosity of spirit are, and you can tell this by the tenor of their semi-literate outpourings, cowardly saddos who wouldn't say Bournemouth boo to a Swindon goose down the pub or, particularly, in the pub car park. They should be despised as they deserve.
Mick.
It's tw@ts like you that ruin the lovely towns of Bournemouth & Poole. Tell me, exactly which pub is it you drink in.
I have worked with many Swindon supporters over the years and generally find them to be very gobby, but when you stand up to them they normally shut-it and shy away so behave yourself.
Shut up KNOB
Just cos youre in a coastal town doesnt mean its lovely, far from it full of ignorant blue rinse CLINTS who run you down in motorised scooters and pick pockets preying on those who visit for the day.
Go away Eddie, by the way i know handles or names on here are all fictional fun or work/hobby orientated but please tell me steady eddie one for the road you are a Stobbart fan and spend your spare time watching from motorway gantries. HA HA HA sad individual, probably dont get to watch football as your always out collecting fancy truck names and registrations. Still at least youve moved on from trains you pathetic idle shat stain. By the way you dont bother me coming on here I just dont like you, you vile creature.
Just proved my very point you thick c**t. One born every second. Are you related to LeGob by any chance.??? Actually coming from Swindon you probably are. F**king inbred t@ssers.
Big man on your keyboard i only live in Salisbury not far for you to pop up and well chat about how inbred i am and how thick i am. Of which clearly you are as its you you blue rinse mugging freak on our site.
Let me know when youre coming ill talk you in where youll find me and then youll know where to order your fu$£ing ambulance from.
Sooooooo fooking scared. Pitty you live in salisbury coz i will be visiting SN3 tomorrow where no doubt i will encounter your brother, uncle, father, grandfather. Hang on they are all the same person aren't they.????
As i said earlier you Swindon tw@ts are gobby little sh1tes. Now run away as normal.
Ignore Steady unless he can come on here with good clean banter not this embarrassment to Bornmuff twaddle , grow up laddie - you are making a right idiot of yourself.
Keyboard warriors at their best or worst it would appear.
Stick to football banter on here please not some mundane personal clap trap you are trying to be insulting with.
Yes quite right c&f, you wouldn't dream of going on someone elses sight and stirring things up would you??????.
When I do I do it with clean banter and not gutter talk ... learn from that sonny Jim.

Don't forget its Blue Rinse Day today -wahey - down there in Cocoon land.

Now find a little corner somewhere, put your hands over your ears, close your eyes and chant over and over to yourself, 'I must not come on here and make a bigger fool of myself'.... there's hope for you yet..... Bye Bye

Perhaps you should heed your own advice as well by staying off the echo site(if you can). Hope you feel real hard with these words, fool. And give it a rest with the sonny jim crap, im in my fourty's.
As for the moron from Salisbury, when you make comments like " hope you crash into a tree & die" spare a thought for the poor people that have been affected by such tragic incidents including many of your own supporters, no doubt. Dispicable.!!!!.

God this is depressing... Really will be nice when we can get back to discussing on the pitch activities. This sniping and name calling is well over the top, got no time for it (that includes perpetrators from Swindon as well as Bournemouth).

Bit of good natured banter's always appreciated, but as for posts above talking about fighting in car parks and so forth, the argument embarasses the lot of you. Would love to think it's teenagers responsible but have a feeling it'll be blokes of my own age or older resorting to this kind of nonsense. Give it a rest!

Here`s a question for older fans ! Do you think Bert Head`s Babes would`ve won this league as it is now ? By the way County ground cuppas were better in those days !”
They were good collection of lads most of whom did well elsewhere but go back to 1912 and read up on Harold Fleming, STFC's ENGLAND centre forward. My Dad told me that his control of the ball with either foot was incredible and he ensured that the ball was always away from any opponent.
They did stop him when they broke his leg.
Of course without the benefit of modern technology you cannot makeant to make comparisons.
