Swann is the worst chairman we’ve had without doubt. Nothing to do with money his family has plenty and his family have wasted a lot of money on the club. It is to do with the naive and frankly dangerous way he runs the club. Thinking he automatically has the ability to make decisions beyond his skillset because he thinks he knows about football. It was known by most fans that he runs the club this way and now more and more ex players, managers are coming out with comments reinforcing it. He came out in the media and said he had learned lessons – yet still decided which players to buy, employed his son as chief scout and having the manager release a quite ridiculous statement that it was all him – using him as a puppet and basically turning Cox into a pathetic mouthpiece for the club, eroding his standing with the fans. Swann thinks fans cannot see this – it is clear that he tries to push his own agenda for the club by now using old fans favourites at their expense.
We have without doubt seen the worst players and performances in the club’s history under Swann – the number and style of defeats have broken the wrong type of records. Worst start, highest goals conceded, worst league run, lowest number of shots….all stem from Swann and his Retford U10’s management glory days.
Swann genuinely thinks he knows how to run a football club – I don’t think he would be bothered if we went down to non league because he sees nothing going on around him, Emperor’s new clothes stuff…..
