Oi Den! Replying swwindon61uk 5:18pm Sat 18 Mar 17

Yes '61 but why are we one of the teams at the bottom? Answer: because of an abysmal half-arsed recruitment strategy - and not just this season. We were semi-successful in 14/15 but even then we were flying by the seat of our pants. The feeble surrender to Preston should have been the last warning, after many others, but Power just blundered on regardless. Now we are getting what he deserves.

Those of us who warned this was coming were told we were "negative" and support like ours was not needed.

It's no good saying "It's OK, we lost to a team at the top." We should be able to compete in this division.

Power needs to change or go. Sadly, he'll probably do neither.

swwindon61uk Replying Oi Den! 5:51pm Sat 18 Mar 17

The failure to recruit this last window was the ultimate turning point with me and lies with Power for sure.
When we played PNE away just before the playoff final was also a turning point when we played a weak team even though we were in contention for the title.
I never say it is ok to lose any game no matter where the opposition are in the league.
There was a lot of negativity and will be no matter how well we do and still maintain there were/are people happy that we are going down, yourself not included.
Power is getting what he deserves i agree, just hope the next chairman has deep pockets to give us what everyone wants,he will have to as nobody is going to the games season apparently.
I said once we fall into the bottom 4 we will not get out.
Deep down i saw the writing on the wall as far back as Woking in the friendly away, playing awful, management team sat down in the bench, nothing really changed till recently.
I think Power will go in the summer myself.

4 defeats on the trot, don't count how many goals we concede any more, even defeat is not so hard to take knowing our fate is inevidible , it's almost taken for granted. Jones not included in the squad for those 4 games, no mention of him, has he been sent back to Liverpool?

Williams just stating what the fans have said all season with regards to lack of experience, funny how it's taken so long for the penny to drop. Slagging off his players and finger pointing blame on their lack of nous is not going to make his CV look any better than it was this morning even though in his frustration he is right in what he says. Maybe he should be asking if there is anything he could have changed or done different after we took the lead, was his appointed captain marshalling the troops, sound like no leadership on or off the field, so no great surprise when they lose their way. He still had the chance to use one more sub I believe, even though there was not much to choose from on the bench.

Total shambles, can't wait for this season to be over.

Mytee said "Power has had all season to replace all of them but has done nothing". Never a truer word. His signing through the summer were woeful, both ability wise and quantity. When the injuries and cards started mounting we were down to bare bones because the squad numbers were thread bare. He got a second chance after he brought Sherwood on board, promised the earth, but as soon as the window opened, whilst Shrewsbury, Bury, Oldham, MKD all took positive actions, they brought players in from the first day, think the Shrews already had 3 new loans on JAN 2nd when they played us. All the strugglers reacted except us, all of them changed their coaches and haven't looked back in there efforts to beat the drop. What did power do? Nothing for 3 weeks and then it was too little too late, he waited until the fat lady cleared her throat and now it is all over bar the post mortem.

TheDukeOfBanbury Replying mytee 9:15pm Sat 18 Mar 17

You are not deluded in any way.
Maybe time to speak out. I want every Manager and Chairman to be a success. Equally i don't support Swindon because of any Manager or Chairman.
Football is a fickle business when it comes to support. If Swindon were top of the league and 6 points clear Williams and Power would be hailed as heroes. It's simply the law of the football jungle but we are far from that.
This club has a history of false dawns and long periods of struggle and stagnation.
Power saved us, he saved us from Jed but it stops there.
Expectation is everything but when it comes to judgement it's simply down to results and what is on the pitch. It's very easy to post on a forum but how many on here have actually gone to question what they believe is wrong with the club?
I have met Power on a few occasions. One asked do I trust him. My answer i can count on one hand people who I trust in my life.
However I judge people in their motives, actions and what they tell you.
It was acknowledged that mistakes had been made on pre-season Recruitement and whilst disappointing I can live with that. January it was acknowledged that lessons were learnt and experience was required and would be addressed.
I don't think the signings of 3 Chelsea kids, Gladwin and Ince met with the experience criteria.
In addition to this having 2 of our better players in Doughty and Furlong returning to their club mid season was not exactly ideal and compounded a team already lacking in quality and pre season planning.
Williams will not be sacked, well at least not until the end of the season. He is not part of the Inner Circle, but fits with what Power wants.
The most difficult part in all of this is there is no simple and effective remedy.
Power is the owner of the club, not the trust. The most effective way out of this is if the club is put up for sale as a going concern. Unfortunately I don't think this is on the agenda.
I am all up for a sustainable debt free club but this must be coupled with a Strategy with a clear plan and direction. I struggle to see one. The club is in a real mess and sadly it will get worse before it gets better.
It's not going to Powers plan and whilst some on here will be happy with that it doesn't make everything ok, far from it.
The only hope is an alternative buyer, the purchase of the CG may help but it won't solve the problem. Finally there is no guarantee a new "buyer" putting in an offer is a right buyer. A recent interested party would have been a good fit in the fact that they care about STFC however I am not sure about their financial clout.
Anything you buy must have a offer and be accepted. Power is in control of the acceptance.
Judge on actions and facts and these are stronger than opinions.
Power Out Banners whilst are feel good factors they don't provide a viable alternative. Something will give in all of this but who knows where this is going to end up.
I will renew my season ticket as always as a supporter of the football club. I may even have another opportunity to meet the Chairman again before the season closes but I have no further questions.
I do believe the anti Power posters should join the trust, if anything you will have a voice. If only this season was over today and not looking forward to Div Two football............
.Where this all ends up I have no idea and let's hope it ends well.

Power is running the club into the ground. I reckon Admin is just around the corner the way things are going, can you not see it coming. The 'training ground' hasn't happened all sorts of issues there, loads of players out of contract in June, some already sifted over the Waterford, the signs are there, you just have to look. The bad discipline within the club, some players already seemingly bannished, and of course he has stitched up Williams and has offered no help, Tim Dim has walked away, the Trust now looking at buying the ground from under him, Shah reporting back how far they have progressed and have the blessing of SBC. Season Ticket holders now sitting on their money looking for signs of intent from him as they have been rooked twice but now wise to his bu11y and spin, short fall on the turnstiles already means he is having to fund the short fall this season on the gate receipts, the vultures are circling Duke, the Buzzards are already sensing a kill, the next move from Power will be save the club or pull out, my guess is he doesn't have enough business accumen to run a bath let alone this club. I'll love it if he proves me wrong.

The Adver should ask Power the question, 'Is the club up for sale, if so how much?'

The Trust could end up buying the club and the ground with crowd funding and that would be the best result of the season.

Don't forget, is there not a gentlemans agreement between Power and Black that should we get promoted or if he sells the club there is a debt to Black which must be paid. Obviously if we dont get promoted and if we don't get sold there is no debt payable. If we go into admin the debts would all be written off at so many pence in the pound and a new company formed so the club could continue. Probably that would extinguish any debt payable to Black.

What is required is an owner who stops selling our best players season after season and replacing them with inferior ones. This drop into League 2 will not stop the slide into the Vanerama league unless this process is reversed.Needed is an owner who cares about the club,town and fans! any ideas?

Apart from Viggs and perhaps Thompson we have no good players of our own left who would raise significant capital. To put a price on the likes of Boo or Barry is rather ouragiuos and an embarrasement.
