    Early days yet, it’s going to get much worse than this. I’m more optimistic about my energy bills than I am The Iron.

    Whoever the manager is the gloom will not lift around our club till Swann sells up and goes, simple as that.

    Can we really afford to sit idly by with the most incompetent manager in our history until Swanny finally decides to feck off??

    The time is now for Hill and McMann to take responsibility for this utter shambles of a record of defeats. Both should be gone tonight never mind waiting for tomorrow. Just istened to McMann’s after match interview. Same as Hill never take any responsibility. Hill set up for a point today and never changed it even after Bromley went down to ten me. He has no idea how to change things and is tactically inept, and his substitutions are ridiculous. It’s as if he is scared we will win. No wonder our players don’t know what the are doing because we have a manager who totally doesn’t know what HD himself is doing.

    This is why swann has put himself in the background so he doesn’t have to do anything, no interviews even unless he chooses in my opinion, so no news whatsoever is being relayed to our supporters, many of whom have purchased season tickets and football kits etc.If Swann doesn’t let go of our club I feel as a future football club we are doomed. He has zero interest in our Club in my opinion. Otherwise why would Hill still be here when other managers who have performed much better have been sacked.

    1 point from our last 14 away games, and our home form isn’t much better, so I have seen us sack managers for a lot less, I wonder why Keith didn’t do a end of game interview.

    It just keeps getting worse 3 nil up and lose play against 10 men for more than half a game and lose. If the heirarchy don’t go it will really be the end of our once mighty iron.

    Unless there’s a deal still in the background and Turnbull should know, he should be considering his position also. The phone call should be, Peter you know I’m acting chairman, yes Lee, Keith’s not up to the job as manager I’m afraid, so what you saying Lee, well it’s simple Peter it’s either him or me I’m just not prepared to carry on trying to get the fans on board he’s just destroying all my good work. Swanns probable answer, thanks for all you’ve done wish you every success in the future.

    Le is employed by Swann, so his hands are tied to a extent.

    His hands aren’t tied Mick, we all questioned why Lee came back, he told me personally it’s because Swanny assured him he’s selling up, we all know if a new owner comes along the first thing their gonna do is get rid of Hill, he’ll always get another job in football so why handcuff yourself to Hill? He’s done well since he came back but the next meet and greet won’t be as easy as it’s been up to now the fans will want some answers his honeymoon period is over.

    Hill this week aligned himself to the swann family in his interview purely to save his own job in doin so in the eyes of the fans has made his own job untenable. Then take his record into account he must go. No question we need rid of both and asap. Its now passed 7pm and i keep checkin to make sure he has a job, cant believe he still has. Its a joke

    He can’t just sack him unless he has the budget to do it, he could recommend it because Lee won’t be paying his contract up, but whatever Keith does it doesn’t seem to work and I don’t know if we looked like scoring today but I am totally fed up of all these defeats, it is deflating for us supporters, the last two results have been demoralising for different reasons, losing on Monday to a injury time goal would complete the set of bad ways to lose.

    Mick its exactly that we keep finding new ways to lose and the next one seems to always feel worse than the last one.
    Teams are giving us a chance, solihull 3-0 lead, Bromley player sent off for a stupid stamp but because we have no game plan at all we can’t capitalise on it. Keith seems to have been here for ages and i still have no idea what style of football we are trying to play. Like alot of other fans am almost at the point of walking away from scunthorpe united as all They do at the moment is make me feel depressed every time the full time whistle is blown.

    Somebody need to come out and just tell the truth if something is still happening behind the scenes with regards to the takeover. All the silences is causing uncertainty and when you couple that with the worrying start to the league, it’s a disaster.

    If the takeover has collapsed then come out and say so. This is fucking ridiculous and needs sorting.

    If there is no takeover – do you think that the Club will complete the season or do you think it will be liquidated?

    Interesting question because I think Swannster said in that interview that he barely had enough money to see this season out. I could be wrong but it didn’t sound good.

    I’m sure I remember an interview with Swann who said that we could not afford to be relegated to the national league as we didn’t have the money to compete. This season we will maybe get through with the parachute payment but after that it looks very bleak.

    This is what you get when you have a clueless chairman who spends double than what the clubs earning for the first 3 or 4 years of his tenure.

    Seriously, what did he expect was going to happen ?. I remember reading the club accounts and he was spending silly amounts, I’m sure once I read he was spending a 120 odd % over what the club was earning.

    Absolute madness.

    Lee’s hands may be tied, but his tongue isn’t.

    About time someone called this man out.

    Somebody needs to come out and clear whether the takeover is even still on. Hill needs binning off as well, he has absolutely no idea. Budget isn’t helping him he’s inept and you can tell he’s a Swann lackey listening to his pre and post match interviews.

    Hill is nothing more than in insincere Swann cling on. All that shite playing the youths last season as the reason why we went down, he’s hardly used any of them this season.

    I suppose he did his job though he had me and many other people fooled.

    I take all the things Prawn has said over the years with a giant pinch of salt, all the things stated above by the posters about what has been said is true because I heard the same things in the same interviews but I don’t necessarily believe any of them. It sounds cynical but based on the reality of where we are now as a football club I don’t believe anything anymore about what is happening. It’s sad but true and it’s shit TBH. 😞
