As someone who has always backed the SUFC owners and chairmen to the hilt — Wharton when he was here and Swann since he took over — I can hardly describe my feelings at this moment. To say that I feel let down would be the understatement of the century.
It isn’t about “being wrong” — I couldn’t care less about that — but about the position we’re now in. It’s clear the players don’t care, the manager is useless and the chairman has to take full responsibility for all of this.
PETER SWANN, YOU’VE LET ME AND EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THIS CLUB’S SUPPORTERS DOWN. I CARE, WE ALL CARE SO YOU’D BETTER READ THIS AND REMEMBER IT.
GET THIS CLUB SORTED OUT. I DON’T CARE HOW MUCH OF YOUR MONEY IT TAKES BUT GET IT SORTED. OTHERWISE YOU WILL NEVER, EVER BE FORGIVEN.April 27, 2021 at 8:37 pm #205624

What is impressive is the way the other teams under threat, including Grimsby, are fighting for their lives.
The same cannot be said about us.

Embarrassing how we have performed this last few games, a massive clear out needed and the mystery is how we have 47 points, we certainly need to let the shackles off the last 2 games because this negative approach isn’t working and playing some attacking football cannot do any worse, it’s not impossible not to get relegated but can’t see Southend overturning 8 goals, but if Cox is here next season he has got to stop over thinking games and start entertaining.April 27, 2021 at 9:32 pm #205642

Swan the management and players deserve no second chance this is the lowest this club has ever been .I was there in 75/76 watching and saw commitment from the players .These should all be ashamed get all concerned out of this club . Fans now need to rise up enough is enough.April 28, 2021 at 10:39 am #205713
When myself and others tried telling you this a long, long time ago we were all patronised by you and the other Swann loving clown and accused of having agenda’s and hating his wealth. Well you can stick yer post and opinions up yer backside after the lies you told about us!April 28, 2021 at 10:43 am #205714

I’m also fed up with the dross that is being served up by what passes for Iron players these days. Then the ass clown of a manager continually saying he is “disappointed” seriously, you could turn the volume off, it’s the same every time.
They are not playing for him, don’t have to play for the shirt. But what rankles with me is they can’t even try to play for us.
I don’t like sacking managers, but this time I’ll make an exception. Swanny get your head out of your backside and get us a new manager. Don’t wait on it either, get him in before the transfer window. That or sack him now and put Wilcox in as caretaker till the end of this season,April 28, 2021 at 4:34 pm #205754
A pretty pathetic and cheap shot, Pat. This isn’t and never has been about who is right and who is wrong and if that’s all you care about then I suggest you think again. I’m not going to apologise for one moment for backing the chairman against the ridiculous arguments you used to come out with about bloody pies.
Moaning and groaning achieves nothing. If it did we wouldn’t be in the mess we are now. Swann’s far more likely to take notice of those supporters who were behind him but whose support he no longer has; and there are a lot more in that category than yours, including me.April 29, 2021 at 9:01 am #205797
You accuse me of cheap shots and then accuse me of going on about pies, something I have NEVER mentioned, the irony is unbelievable!!!
You backed the chairman despite, failed promises on the stadium, employing inept manager after inept manager, a shambolic transfer policy, a matchday experience that was nothing short of abysmal (not that you would know as you don’t attend games but think you have the right to tell us that do that we are wrong).
You cant have it both ways bucks, you accused myself and others of having an agenda and hating Swanns wealth with absolutley zero evidence to back it up and now when you can no longer defend the indefensible you think you can just change your mind without such an apology to those of us you spouted lies, misquotes and utter bullshine about. No, no, no it doesnt work that way, others may have forgotten the bile you posted on here but I have not!
Oh! and last of all, moaning and groaning may achieve nothing, but neither does blindly clapping like a preforming seal as you and your pal have been doing!April 29, 2021 at 9:06 am #205800
Don’t rise to him Pat, there’s no point arguing among ourselves, we need to be united.April 29, 2021 at 9:23 am #205801
It’s difficult not to rise to a bloke that makes up blatant lies about me, he is entitled to his point of view but he shouldn’t need to make up lies about others to make it!
His double standards and rank hypocrisy make me sick.April 29, 2021 at 9:34 am #205806
I don’t disagree with you on many of those points!April 29, 2021 at 9:34 am #205807
And, as I’ve posted on another thread ‘moaning and groaning’ louder and in greater numbers more consistently might be the only thing we can do right now. I’m sure many on here will emphasise with Pat, the many that have been straw manned by Bucks over the years. Maybe if the majority hadn’t been so quiet and apathetic over the last few years we wouldn’t be in this impossible situation now? Anyway, that’s in the past. I’m not particularly confident enough people really care but we can but hope more and more will ‘moan and groan’ louder and longer and gain allies that just might make a difference?April 29, 2021 at 4:30 pm #205882the_refParticipantOffline

Heavens, I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve had insults hurled in my direction by you, Pat, to say nothing of the numerous accusations of ‘lying’ you’ve made when all that I’ve offered is an opinion. Now here you are at it again. My recollection is that you were moaning and groaning about pies, either running out or being cold, or maybe it was pasties, I can’t remember, frankly, but it was certainly food-related.
Deerey, anyone who comes on this board and disagrees with the moaners and groaners, as I do, is given a torrid time. It’s the same for UTI. So please spare me the victim card. If and when you’re perfect, fine, I’ll take personal criticism from you.
As for people not having moaned and groaned loud enough, that would be a sound argument if the moaning and groaning had been constructive. But it hasn’t. It’s been no different from when Wharton was the owner, except people have had to watch their language more carefully because Swann won’t accept the abusive comments that were hurled at Wharton.
Swann needs to understand that supporters want him to succeed. This means appointing a decent manager and giving that manager the free rein needed to bring in the players he wants. Perhaps I’m wrong but this certainly doesn’t appear to have been the case up to now.
Swann is far more likely to listen to constructive argument about the things that really matter than he is to moaning and groaning about pies, pasties, the club restaurant or anything else that too many of here have bleated on about for the past few years. Of course these things need to be sorted and it’s perfectly reasonable to raise them, but all too often they’ve just been used as an excuse to beat Swann over the head with. It was exactly the same with Wharton so why should anyone think it would be any different under a new owner?!April 29, 2021 at 6:00 pm #205894

Bucksiron must be angry. Focusing on this has meant he hasn’t spoken about his obsession with climate change for the past 10 posts! :-OApril 29, 2021 at 7:29 pm #205903

Err, beg to differ.
Plenty of constructive suggestions have been posted on here in the past five years.
The best we’ve got out of it is a lick of paint in the Iron Bar.

No he isn’t, which is why we find ourselves in the mire.
It was exactly the same with Wharton

Does that make it alright then NI?. And unlike Swanny,Wharton was a Scunny fan not just a plastic.April 29, 2021 at 10:14 pm #205921
Sometimes Awaywego I wonder what the hell you’re on about.
Does that make WHAT alright?
Criticism of Wharton was on par with what Swann has received in the last 5 years. Do me a favour!
The situation with the present incumbents is totally different. Not the “it was exactly the same with Wharton” nonsense that Bucks would have you believe.
Scroll through a few posts from that past week or two to check out what the majority think. Or to save time just have a look at the POLL thread.
