    Seen no evidence to suggest so myself,but would be disappointed if it was.

    Always seemed balanced to me.

    I’m no technical boffin, but I sincerely doubt a website forum could be in cahoots with any living person.

    I would also add that whether we like/ dislike Swann etc, have we all been fake account holders on here for so many years just waiting for the right time to like/dislike/ agree or trash the next owner of our club?. Quite bizarre the way social media is used sometimes and appears to have such a hold over certain people.

    The irony of Hilton bemoaning rumours against him when he launches them at others.

    He can’t even the excuse of payback, because he is making accusations against the admin here, who hasn’t spread any against him.

    Just to make my position clear, I am a fan, a poster and have never had any contact whatsoever with Mr Swann and am delighted that the club I have supported for many years is still in existance thanks to Mr Hilton. I find it hard to believe that there are any Iron fans with a desire to liase with Mr Swann given the result of his tenure.
    On Bru there may have been some negativity (I would call much of it scepticism but what’s in a name?) There have also been many posts in support and requesting support for the new chairman and comparing the number of negative versus positive posters rather than negative versus positive posts might give a different picture.

    IMO he’s just playing to a gallery of which there are barely any critics (Facebook group), and those that do ask too many questions get pelted by the mob. That initself suggests deflection and a tactic to quell further questioning. The younger ones may fall for it, the older ones just want calm and stability so jump on board regardless.

    There has been a great deal of mistrust, deep cynicism and outright criticism; there have been a number sitting on a wait-and-see basis – I must admit, myself included; there have not been all that many saying ‘thanks for saving our club, BTW.’
    In addition, there has been a number doing total Cassandra impersonations.
    If you had committed as much in terms of: sweat, toil and cash – I wonder how many on Bru would have been wandering around muttering ‘ungrateful personages’ – or similar – under their breath at this point?
    (If you crash the cash – you have probably bought a certain amount of entitlement to be thin-skinned, IMHO.)
    At this stage, I suggest that fans should not be looking to criticise for the sake of it – but once the season is under way and we have a couple of wins under our belts – fair-minded people must start giving DH the credit – even if it means having to do a complete volte face from where their opinions are now.
    We all know exactly why the fans are so very lacking in trust. It is natural. Had there been no lengthy Swann interlude here, I am sure that the inbuilt and historical decency of most Iron fans would have been peeping through.
    Okay, myself I am not yet 100% certain, so I’m hesitating a bit but at least, I’m looking forward to being able to give DH my unqualified support.

    We need a “home”
    Either sort a deal with Swann or walk away from GP and the taint attached to it and go and ground share with Trinity until a new ground is built.
    As it is, we are still in Swann’s pocket.

    You just have to listen to those interviews on here with Swann to answer the original question . He was challenged far more than Hilton has ever been so far by them (no disrespect but the Iron Hour one with him was very nicey nicey ) .

    I would be more interested to know if Hilton did get in touch with them about coming on .

    I’d be disappointed if he wasn’t trying to get info from all sides, including Swann,

    I’ve seen messages to the contrary.

    Amazing how those who once complained about rumours are now just spreading rumours.

    Only if the purpose of obtaining that information was to share it with forum members though surely.
