SWINDON Town have issued a statement regarding the managerial and takeover situations at the County Ground.

It reads: "Members of the current Board of Directors will be meeting with the prospective new owners today prior to an update with regards to the takeover of the club being provided.

Communication with the Football League continues as the takeover of the club nears completion.

With the club now at the top of League One following yesterday’s excellent team performance at Tranmere Rovers, there is already plenty of speculation as to who the next manager of Swindon Town Football Club will be.

No immediate decision will be taken and in the interim the Board will be discussing the matter with senior members of the playing squad to maintain consistency and be fully prepared for the next two home League One fixtures."

And who made the statement? Someone who happened to be walking past the County Ground at the time?

Call in S.A.L.O.S. Amateur night is resurrected at the County Ground!

Lost all faith in the whole bloody lot of them, regardless of how much money they've put into the club.

Only the playing squad come out of this with any honour and dignity.

To be honest I now expect Town to be in Admin by Saturday.

But confused why people are applying for the managers position, or even showing an expression of interest .......do they not realise there is nobody in the swindon offices to make a decision, they've all left, are leaving or haven't arrived.

Reading between the lines I see it as "hastily arranged meeting between old and new regimes to try and find a way out of the mess they have both created"

And before anyone says anything, I am talking about the takeover, nothing more.

Perhaps they can also discuss why the loan fee was not paid. I suspect it was due for one of the players that returned to the parent club due to injury, such as Giles Coke.

We may be caliming that as the parent club requested its own medical staff treat the player, then the loan contract was invalidated.

Just a thought.....

RUMOURS!

Paul Trollope has emerged as a leading contender for the Swindon managers job. After a successful period as first team coach at Birmingham and Norwich City, the new owners believe the time is now right for Paul to return to management with his hometown club.

When the takeover is completed by the new consortium Wigan Athletic striker Connor McManaman will sign on an emergency loan deal.

Derby County are monitoring the Swindon situation very closely at the moment. Clough is a big fan of striker James Collins and central defender Aden Flint. Flint who was a regular with Derbyshire side Alfreton was on Derby's radar a few seasons back and has impressed scouts this season.

Paul Buckle could make a speedy return to football after leaving Luton with Torquay as he helps them until the end of season following lings illness.

Di Canio has apparently had contact from League 1 side Notts County. Di Canio has apparently turned the club down without even having an interview.
Blackpool are another club he made contact before Paul Ince was appointed. It is also thought that if Di Canio would have resigned earlier, he may have become boss at Bloomfield Road.
A club he could sign for is West Brom. Steve Clarke is keen on appointing the Italian to his coaching staff as an extra assistant.

Paolo di canio set for serious talks about being new coventry manager today.

And it goes on and on..zzzzzzzzzzz

Assuming this mess eventually gets sorted and the FL "eventually" ratifies the takeover, the only people who will come out of this well is the players and fans! The old board should hang their head in shame the way they have not dealt with it properly, and the new board even though they havent technically done anything wrong yet havent got off to a very good start and their names are already tarnished!

But it hurts me to say this...the people who come out of this the worst is Paulo and his team. I really loved the guy but my opinion is fast changing, i feel he has jumped ship and well and truly dumped us in it...and by taking his team with him it now looks like he is being spiteful and vengful! If he had stayed until the end of the season and possibly got us promotion and then left he would have been a legend for ever in the eyes of us fans but he chose to walk out and take all his team with him so leaving us well and truly in the $h1te without a thought to the all the fans who idolised him. Not everything in life can be as we want but sometimes we just have to get on with things.

No great revelations from the statement but at least the two parties are talking. Would love to be a fly on the wall.

The damage has been done. The main owner, the chairman, the manager, the assistant manager, the fitness coach, the goalkeeping coach, all the physios and the best player are in the process of leaving or have left. Presumably Nick Watkins will also leave imminently.

In a period of 4 weeks the club has imploded. I just remember the statement from Black that he wouldn't leave behind a car crash. Well he has. And we're not out of it yet.

Getting FL approval is like the carrot and the donkey, never quite in reach.

And the club is basically now reliant completely on Jed and his boys, who may or may not be fantastic for us, time will tell, but to me it just seems like they were desparate to get their hands on any club for some reason.

How we are top of the league throughout all the mayhem behind the scenes is a credit to the players.

And before anyone says anything, I am talking about the takeover, nothing more.

Perhaps they can also discuss why the loan fee was not paid. I suspect it was due for one of the players that returned to the parent club due to injury, such as Giles Coke.

We may be caliming that as the parent club requested its own medical staff treat the player, then the loan contract was invalidated.

Just a thought.....

A complete non-statement saying nothing (as usual).

The outstanding loan player payment may sound trivial, but if you are transferring ownership and writing off debts and restructuring loans, the books need to be watertight. Can't blame Paolo or Black for this - seems like a straightforward admin error by the club's staff.

I am also wondering whether another potential issue is the new consortium needing indemnification against possible constructive dismissal cases that could be brought to bear against the club by Paolo (and the backroom team?). The wording of his statements and posturing all have the considered ring about them of a constructive dismissal case - broken promises, sale of players without consent or approval, no communication, position untenable etc. etc. Curbishley won his case against West Ham, which cost them £2m

PDC might also have been on a big bonus for getting promotion to the Championship. He may have felt that to achieve that he needed to keep spending money, but the players last night showed clearly that need not be the case.

If you were investing in a business you would not want to be hit by an employment law legal case, precipitated in the previous owners regime, as soon as you get your feet under the desk.

All conjecture of course.

Bodin and/or Ward (Darren, not John from the Trust) in charge until the end of the season if we can't get Adkins on a short-term contract. Then go get a young retiring player/player manager again.

Wilesy. I used to work for a company that used the 'Carrot and Stick' approach to management. First they beat you with the stick and then they shoved the carrot up your Ar**.

I think Town fans understand about that now.

But it hurts me to say this...the people who come out of this the worst is Paulo and his team. I really loved the guy but my opinion is fast changing, i feel he has jumped ship and well and truly dumped us in it...and by taking his team with him it now looks like he is being spiteful and vengful! If he had stayed until the end of the season and possibly got us promotion and then left he would have been a legend for ever in the eyes of us fans but he chose to walk out and take all his team with him so leaving us well and truly in the $h1te without a thought to the all the fans who idolised him. Not everything in life can be as we want but sometimes we just have to get on with things.
I don't think anyone comes out with much credit, to be honest, but I would blame the old board ahead of di Canio. Looks like they can't get out fast enough.

I'll correct that slightly - the players and the fans have been fantastic.

As a foot note, if the management quit, it means we owe them no money on there contracts, maybe saving our club for just that bit longer... Thank you again Paolo for putting us top, then having the peace of mind for us fans, to walk away, and not claim wages, maybe just saving us from the dirty word,

Care to tell us how much they were earning Mallorca? I know they are not cheap and all i here is various figures but does anyone actually know? Also lets give him some credit for what he has done for the club,like his image rights for use of a top hospital in Luton,maybe Newall can do the same for us in Luton or Liverpool. Also before he quit he offered to take a pay cut. Don't get me wrong i am not one of the PDC can do no wrong club,far from it,but i would guess the PDC also brought a lot to the club apart from a hugh wage bill.
Agreed, far too many people looking to assign blame at the moment - first it was Black, then the football league, then Paolo, now some are having a pop at Paolo's backroom staff - why would they stay now Paolo's resigned? They're Paolo's team, they'll go where he goes, not unusual in the football world at all. Almost every manager has their own staff they'll bring in.

I personally am thankful to all that have come in for stick recently - thankful to Black and the rest of the board for funding us in the first place, to Paolo and his team for a job well done, and even the Football League seem to have acted as they should have done despite the conspiracy theories that they've got it in for the town.

Yes, things could have been done better, things could have been done differently, but it is what it is. Paolo could've stayed till the end of the season and I for one thought he would, but let's take into account the fact he gave his all whilst he was here. I'm hoping whoever we get to replace him is even half as dedicated.

Not sure of the type - probably mozzarella given it is a close to bulls as possible but probably produced by the BitterSweet Dairy!

So the breaking news is that there is no news? Good work by the Adver there.

Is the Guv taking over? No wonder he always seemed to be hinting at knowing something we didn't.

We can adopt some new chants: "We are no one's red and white army" and "No one runs us, we don't care."

BREAKING NEWS: The cost of socks at all major retailers has now returned to the price they were trading at during the spring and early summer of 2012. Socks have been in short supply since July 2012 when thousands of pairs went missing overnight. The disappearance of the socks led to an increased demand and panic buying, which in turn, led to higher prices at the tills and an increase in the number of pairs being sold on the Black market. However, a spokesman for one of the major retailers said this morning "Our suppliers have been working overtime in an effort to satisy the demand for socks and we are pleased to announce that the levels available in the shops are back to the levels we saw in May 2012. As a result the price has been reduced to reflect this."

RUMOURS!

Paul Trollope has emerged as a leading contender for the Swindon managers job. After a successful period as first team coach at Birmingham and Norwich City, the new owners believe the time is now right for Paul to return to management with his hometown club.

When the takeover is completed by the new consortium Wigan Athletic striker Connor McManaman will sign on an emergency loan deal.

Derby County are monitoring the Swindon situation very closely at the moment. Clough is a big fan of striker James Collins and central defender Aden Flint. Flint who was a regular with Derbyshire side Alfreton was on Derby's radar a few seasons back and has impressed scouts this season.

Paul Buckle could make a speedy return to football after leaving Luton with Torquay as he helps them until the end of season following lings illness.

Di Canio has apparently had contact from League 1 side Notts County. Di Canio has apparently turned the club down without even having an interview.
Blackpool are another club he made contact before Paul Ince was appointed. It is also thought that if Di Canio would have resigned earlier, he may have become boss at Bloomfield Road.
A club he could sign for is West Brom. Steve Clarke is keen on appointing the Italian to his coaching staff as an extra assistant.

Paolo di canio set for serious talks about being new coventry manager today.

And it goes on and on..zzzzzzzzzzz

We know from the past that success at Swindon has come through the big name managers - Hoddle, Macari and Di Canio.
The others have been at best consistent, that is consistently poor, so the appointment of an ex england stand in manager, a Non League hopeful or some unknown person from Scotland does not fill me with joy.
1st choice - Get PDC back - he is a man of principle with an ego as large as they come and given a free hand would see the job thru, at least until the end of this season.
2nd choice Adkins - another man who has proven ability
Dont bother with wannabe's unless you wanna slide into oblivion

Hate the idea of an "outsider" at the minute, in my opinion massively unsettling. We have young hungry players, that with a little bit of guidance from these two could be enough you know. Some old fat has been, middle of the road player and probably even worse track record-wise manager will just bring a lethargic attitude and I think the lads may then start feeling sorry for themselves. No reason they can't ride on the momentum we have and win the league...they all want to go up, course they do, I really don't think a new manager is needed. Sounds odd, but will do more harm than good, mark my words. What's the betting we win the next two games, then appoint a Buckle type and miss out on the playoffs.....

Care to tell us how much they were earning Mallorca? I know they are not cheap and all i here is various figures but does anyone actually know? Also lets give him some credit for what he has done for the club,like his image rights for use of a top hospital in Luton,maybe Newall can do the same for us in Luton or Liverpool. Also before he quit he offered to take a pay cut. Don't get me wrong i am not one of the PDC can do no wrong club,far from it,but i would guess the PDC also brought a lot to the club apart from a hugh wage bill.
Agreed, far too many people looking to assign blame at the moment - first it was Black, then the football league, then Paolo, now some are having a pop at Paolo's backroom staff - why would they stay now Paolo's resigned? They're Paolo's team, they'll go where he goes, not unusual in the football world at all. Almost every manager has their own staff they'll bring in.

I personally am thankful to all that have come in for stick recently - thankful to Black and the rest of the board for funding us in the first place, to Paolo and his team for a job well done, and even the Football League seem to have acted as they should have done despite the conspiracy theories that they've got it in for the town.

Yes, things could have been done better, things could have been done differently, but it is what it is. Paolo could've stayed till the end of the season and I for one thought he would, but let's take into account the fact he gave his all whilst he was here. I'm hoping whoever we get to replace him is even half as dedicated.
Well said 1984. Difficult times but we have been through far worse and we are still top of the league - fantastic achievement by our team at such a time of crisis. COYMR

This. I don't have a lot of time for the trust but I'd think a hell of a lot more of them if they asked people not to chant for Di Canio on Saturday. That would be the last thing the players need to hear especially if they're struggling a bit.

I don't have a lot of time for the trust but I'd think a hell of a lot more of them if they asked people not to chant for Di Canio on Saturday. That would be the last thing the players need to hear especially if they're struggling a bit. Di Canio's gone, the club hasn't. Jeremy Hilary Boob

Another one to consider - and highly unlikely I know but what about Roberto Di Matteo?

He was my choice before Paolo got the job and I believe he is still out of work. Proven at this level too....

I think we can lure him with the promise of no news and a cheese and pickle sarnie!!!

BREAKING NEWS:

Swindon Town Football Club are still unsure whether the takeover has been accepted by the Football League or not. Hopes were raised when the Fax machine sprung into life earlier this afternoon and a message on Football League headed paper started to print. Unfortunately a junior member of the Swindon backroom staff was taken by surprise and spilt his coffee on the machine. A spokesman for the club stated that the member of staff was not to blame as they had no idea what the machine was and it had caught him unawares.

The club have contacted the League by phone and asked for them to send a copy of the fax by email but this request was rejected as they said they had no one trained to use such new technology.

The club have an engineer on site who is working to repair the stricken machine and they hope it will be repaired shortly. They have apologised for the delay but hope that the message will be sent again tomorrow and that they will then be able to make an annoucement regarding the club's future.

I thought resignations had to be accepted before they became effective. Seeing as there is no one at the club to action these requests, we should pay Paolo and his staff their weekly wages and insist they get their backsides back into work immediately! Breach of contract springs to mind and broken promises Paolo, especially to the players and supporters who have backed you unconditionally at times.

I hope the 'Board' (whoever they are at this point) have not accepted PDC's resignation. Whether he goes to Coventry or elsewhere we must receive compensation. If he thinks by resigning before the takeover is complete that this will remove the contractual issue of compensation for any club employing him then he should think again.
As far as selling Matt behind his back goes, I doubt whether this is a breach of contract. Whilst it was an appalling piece of management by the Board, it would be regarded by any court as 'force majeure'. i.e. it was a matter of either sell a player or go into liquidation/administ
ration.
Also, what a pathetic last stroke of man management to strip Macca of the captaincy!!!
Please, please Jed, bring in a top calibre manager. 14 games to play and we're top of the league - what an opportunity!!! COYR

I think the board did accept his resignation and then re-instated him until 5pm Monday. Bit of an odd situation really as I totally agree we should tell him he has a job and to get on with it or tout him out to get some compo! F all for Ritchie and nothing for PDC, total joke...
