    One of the good guys in my opinion , always looked after us fans during the heyday of flag day .
    I always knew she could bring in the dollars but this deal is surely something of a coup and shows she has a bit of steal too . Nice work Michelle

    ‘A bit of steal’, not frying pan to fire I hope.

    All the best to her, and the rest of the board.
    Thank goodness someone had the guts and ability to do it.
    There’s obviously a lot of work to do but Hilton consigned to history is a good start.

    There’s a lot of positives to take from this.

    My great fear was that another faceless businessman would come in and history would repeat itself.

    Having someone ITK take over is a step in the right direction IMHO.

    Fingers crossed for a smooth transition.

    As already stated, Michelle has Scunthorpe United in her blood, along with a proven track record of success with this club working professionally and tirelessly to bring in much needed revenue under a number of “regimes”. The least we can all do is support her and refrain from all of the inane, childish and sexist comments contained within other threads on this site. For those who think it’s funny to make crass jokes about anyone because of their sex is beyond the pale and I would ask all moderators to review said posts, remove them and issue a statement of intent going forward. Let’s not allow Irun Bru to descend to the depths of any form of sexist behaviour or commentary.

    Michelle – I wish you good luck and every success in your new role.

    Delighted with the news. Feels like the club is finally in the hands of the community. A good day.

    This is the first thread I’ve read tonight. Not seen anything but genuine good wishes elsewhere and this is good news.
    BPG …. does this mean the return of old big hair?!

    Check out awaywego’s recent output, unless they have been deleted.

    The future of our club is the best it’s been in years. It’s good to have the club in Scunny fans’ hands again. Looking forward to what comes ahead. I know a lot of it will likely be tough, given our financial situation, but believe it will lead to something better again with capable hands at the helm.

    You would suggest that the abuse of Swann should at least be paused for the time being , maybe even a slight bit of ego stroking would not be a bad idea .

    You posted something about lamenting the club dying and being nice having a craic with some of us CMC. Turns out we live to fight another day, and chattin shite with each other.

    If that was the case.

    Hopefully we’ve got it right this time.

    Michelle is deep in discussions regarding buying the G.P back and apparently going well. If the ground becomes ours once again, this will likely be the most important days in United’s history.

    Over the moon.

    Where is everyone’s sense of humour nowadays, crass, sexist, sick a joke is a joke, why should anyone change with the jokes we were brought up on, an English man a Scotsman and the Irish man, Bernard Manning and everyone and anybody else, Roy Chubby Brown played to a packed baths hall last month, humour helps us along on our journey long may it continue.

    It’s a real shame that this didn’t happen back in January. Then we’d have been spared all of the shenanigans surrounding the 1899 club, acquired land on Warren Rd and the abuse on social media.

    Swann still holds all of the aces, but I’m sure he’d rather be playing with Michelle than dodgy Dave. He’s going to save £££s on solicitors’ fees too, as I’m guessing the court case will now be dropped.

    Sadly the CCJs on the club will still need clearing and tax, wages and pensions need to be settled. Let’s hope some of the money raised can go towards that end.

    I’m not popping any champagne corks just yet, and until the club is back on its feet it will still be a very sober October!

    The haven’t been owners a day yet so give them a chance to sort it out, Hilton wasn’t given it rightly or wrongly, I know Simon and Roj pretty well to talk to and they are both Iron through and through, met Michelle once and I know she is a Iron as well, let us just let them sort it in their own way and stop jumping to conclusions, they will know the priorities, let us just call them the dream team

    This is one hell of a relief!

    Thank you Michele and others, this is what we needed. A new club owner who is known to be an Iron fan.

    I just hope everyone lets her get on with her work. We no longer require any ‘bystanders’ of any kind.

    You should revisit some of your posts on here and on Facebook over the past 4 – 5 months. If you did, you would accept that you well and truly had your head up your backside when it came to Hilton and if it wasn’t for the bystanders, it would still be firmly up there.
