Swann could pay the contracts up of the crap players HE HAND A HAND IN BRINGING IN but he won’t. I think he’s lost interest if truth be told.
This could easily be solved by him if he really had the desire to. Let’s face it, he’s the one to really blame here.
No doubt he could pay the players up…send the crap loan players back and pay up Cox.
All his doing.
He should get an experienced manager in till end of season, pay up/send the crap back and give it a go..only this time let the manager have a huge say on who comes in.
I don’t think he’ll last much longer, if we stay up this season I think he’ll move on. Swann needs to anyway.
Fingers crossed he clears off.
Swann somehow gazumping Dennis Hobson at the last minute is the worst thing that could have ever happened to this club.
Criminal overspending when he flirted with the play offs twice and the most unconvincing promotion with Wilcox at the helm isn’t worth what the clubs become now.
This sounds all well and good in an ideal world, where there can be no negative outcomes to the decisions we want to happen, but the problem is money. We have no reliable source of income at present, Swann sounds negative with regards to the financial situation. Where are we getting the money from to pay up the squad of garbage and Cox? You could say Swann should put up, but it’s hard when he’s not making much money either. The entertainment industry is struggling at present.
None of this is to defend Swann. His catastrophic mistakes have led us to where we are now, from poor managerial appointments since Alexander left to trying to build a squad of inexperienced youth on the cheap, using the expertise of dodgy agents selling off their duds as great stars of the future without thought of a proper scouting system. I don’t like how the club is tied so closely to him. Under Wharton there could be a greater chance of disagreement with board members not so directly linked to him, but with so many Swanns and Cygnets on the board it makes it easier to ignore criticism because it’s not forthcoming. He has oversold his ambitions to supporters, with his dreams of a Championship club in a brand new ground failing to come to fruition, though I appreciate the council weren’t exactly blameless here. He has even oversold this season with regards to his comments about us being excited by what these young players can do.
If someone came in to buy the club from him I wouldn’t be sad. However, I realise that things are difficult for him now and he might not be able to make these large scale changes you demand. People say he should go, but we can’t just discard an owner like we would with an empty crisp packet. There needs to be someone to pay the bills and we need to have someone interested to have a chance of having him gone. If he put it up for sale we might get interest, but we would need to be careful as to who we could have, because we could get worse.
I have no idea as to whether Hobson would have been better, but I am sceptical of any hindsight which says he would have been. He seemed another gob at the time full of promises, but I don’t know whether he’d have been good or bad and I don’t think anyone can make an honest assessment over whether he would have been.
