    This seems to have stirred Dodgy Dave into a full statement (as seen on Facebook). I got to the self-pitying waffle about sleepless nights and abuse and gave up on the wall of text. Not interested in his self-pity after the way he treated fans and the club.

    Doesn’t deserve our time. Why is he being given air time?

    You have to admire the irony when he writes 6 pages of drivel trying to prove his integrity whilst using a burner account to post the statement

    Two sides to every story Deerey nice to have some balance imo.
    Interesting he saw the same as me the money from Ian not so Sharp was a donation and not a loan.
    I (probably alone) will always be grateful he stepped in when he did and saved the club from going out of business till Michelle stepped in and saved the club properly.

    “Interesting he saw the same as me the money from Ian not so Sharp was a donation and not a loan.”

    lol. You believe anything if it suits. If Dave says so, you trust it, no matter how many times he’s fibbed. I have seen evidence to suggest otherwise.

    Aye, got to be thankful that Dave stepped in to give us an extra 6 months to worsen the situation.

    Your choice awaywego. To say I don’t share your deeply held beliefs is an understatement. Thankfully it looks as though the majority posting on the FB group have the measure of him now.

    I reckon Iron_Bru ,The Iron Trust and Matt Blanchard are being airbrushed out of this story. The Iron trust made the ground an asset of community value,Iron bru led the fight in showing where Swann was going wrong and ousting Hilton at a considerable risk and toll .Matt B set up the gofundme ,it appears that this BBC guy thought Matt “Bell ” did that

    I have listened to this and thought he made it clear the fundraiser was done by “Matt Ellis and the others.” I don’t think Max’s “I contributed to the dossier” nonsense has stuck.

    It’s important that these contributions are recognised. Perhaps Iron Hour will issue some engraved tin goblets in the near future.

    A busy weekend meant that I was unable to listen to the documentary when it aired, but I was able to hear it on catch-up when driving to work this morning.

    A very good piece which told the story in broad brush-strokes. It was still interesting and at times emotional and would have given the casual listener a decent idea of how troubled and triumphant things have been on the Iron rollercoaster. The half-hour run time of this programme didn’t really do the twisting nature of the story much justice – but we should be grateful that our club was given any national air time at all.

    I do think the last few years is a compelling story and I’m sure there’s a more in-depth version of it waiting to be told. A multi-part radio series, a Netflix-type documentary or even a feel-good film in the Brassed Off, Calendar Girls or Full Monty ‘plucky community’ vein. If Ian Sharp is worth his salt he’s all over this already.
