I think he stops in the UK for a few days on his way to other places, and has to do the "dash to the train station just before the final whistle" that is common to many of us.

I guess he would be chauffeur driven back to the train station

Remember that crap home game against Newport in the EFL Trophy, when only the Arkells was in use?  He invited me and a mate into the Chairman's Lounge (nobody else was in there) and he had to leave at 9.15pm to walk to the station to get the train to Paddington.

I reckon we've all used that excuse one time or another  Wink

Canít be worse than power. From what heís said in the open letter, it looks like he understands the frustrations and knows what he wants to do to get the fans back on board. Thatís only going to be a positive step for the club. The lack of openness and transparency in Lee powers tenure has only worsened.

Oh, but he could be worse. A lot worse. By some distance. There's been other owners in football that have made power look an angel in comparison.

Not that I'm saying Clem is worse, I don't know. But...

Yeah me and Jaybox and half the FB group.... might get a bit busy in there.

Joking aside whilst I'd love to know what he's thinking and planning I think he's right to be a bit more circumspect now.  After all I am just a fan.  Literally the last three messages I have from him say "no worries I appreciate it" and that is probably how it should be.

Nothing about how he's put himself across fills me with confidence. If he wanted to buy me a drink then I'm sure it would change my mind. Which doesn't fill me with confidence. A confidence spiral if you will.

More Jed or Power than Black or Wray.

I'm fence sitting.

Morfuni belongs to the same chain that started when McCrory took over. That's a red flag (big issue for me)

Morfuni has zero links to the Town and has, despute everything, fallen in love with the club. That, to me, is a red flag (what is in this for you? If I experienced anything close to what he has during his relationship with Swindon then I'd get my money back and run)

Morfuni has a naive tendancy to talk to randoms but not the media. Red flag (another owner who doesn't talk via the right sources)

Morfuni isn't Lee Power. Roll the frickin' dice.

The stuff in his open letter was too good to be true in places. Over-sold it which I appreciate sounds like 'fans will never be happy' rhetoric. I'll be happy once this club is in safe hands.

True, but I believe he's in regular contact with the Trust, and his letter was circulated via the media (not the fans).

Clem has done one thing that we havenít seen since the days Fitton was around and thatís someone who owns a portion of the club be open and honest with the fans.

Does he have enough money to fund us properly? Hard to really know but the fact heís been running Axis for 27 years and been involved in orojects like Spurs new ground and various large scale commercial projects doesnít suggest to me that heís short of a pound or two.

For me, it comes down to his intentions. In the open letter to the fans, it wasnít exactly setting out a vision of what he sees the club being. It was pretty much the basics of what Iíd expect of any new owner which would suggest to me he doesnít know.

However, Lee Power doesnít give us a vision (or at least one that we believe) and has never really covered the basics.

So would I take Clem now rather than wait for someone (potentially) wealthier? Iíll take anyone who is willing to do the right thing by the club and respect itís history. Clem has stuck around and paid his dues through all the shit Power has brought us so why not give Clem a whirl in the hot seat. He might not have the football knowledge like Power but at least it keeps the wolves away from the door for a while longer and who knows what it may bring us.. For better or worse.. At the very least, it buys us more time until Bitcoin is worth more!

It doesn't matter whether we trust him or not. Where we are now is that we need a change. Power wants to leave and not put any cash in. We are in trouble on the pitch and off it. We need someone to take us forward.
