I very rarely post on this site now but given where things stand feel it is right to do so before Swann’s talk this evening.
I always backed Wharton while he was the owner and have been one of the few to back Swann 100% since he arrived. I will continue to back him but must say the following:
1. I feel completely let down by what’s happening at the club. The managerial merry-go-round has been a disaster and contributed enormously to where we are now, for which Swann has to accept 100% responsibility.
2. Swann cannot blame supporters for venting their feelings. I’ve disagreed with the moaners and groaners on numerous occasions but understand their frustrations completely — I feel them myself. Supporters deserve to know that Swann remains 100% committed to the club and will continue to provide the financial support necessary for it to survive, with the immediate priority to remain in the league.
3. We know that covid has changed everything and made financial planning extremely difficult but supporters deserve to know that Swann has a plan to turn the club’s fortunes around.
I’ve never agreed with those who knock the club in the past and I won’t be starting now. Finding problems is the easiest thing in the world — it’s solving them that’s difficult; and while I understand supporters’ feelings I also appreciate it won’t be easy for Swann, especially at the moment.
I do, therefore, remain 100% in support of the club and the owner. He needs to learn from past mistakes and do everything possible not to repeat them. In the meantime he must provide the resources necessary to get us out of the appalling situation we find ourselves in.
