Yeah Clem spoke in his last couple of interviews that he stated he was willing to give McGreal a chance which is why I wondered if it was anything to do with Clem or just a falling out with Power.

Power is history now. Why not wait a few days and see how the smoke clears.

The timing of this and his statement in the week is baffling.

I wonder how aware McGreal is of all that's going on. For all we know, his only knowledge of what's happening could all come from Power and fuck knows what he'd be telling people.

I also don't get the statement made 2 days ago, to then be followed by his departure swiftly after.

First. Its a strange statement for the club to have published anyway, especially given at the time issued the court case was not in powers favour. Who approved that statement? And what did it achieve, was it supposed to reassure the fans that work was in progress. Presumably Anderson or Power had to sign off on it. Not just the press guy?

Second. When was the last time we had 6 players lined up before preseason begins. Every single season, you may get 2 or 3 in earlier. But then its a heap of trialists as we know the better players can wait for the best option. I'm not sure i believe there were 6 players lined up.

Third. What changed in two days from that statement that made it McGreal's decision to leave? I think it has to have been his decision for it to be said to be mutual. If Power wanted rid then surely McGreal would just wait for a pay out.

You and i have very different definitions of shabby!

Though good work on not having to put Curran in your eleven.

We'll probably lose one or two of those, plus there's the matter of a few being permanently injured.

Other than that, there's a very decent L2 team.

If Power has turned the taps off, perhaps they weren't paid on payday?

Power does have a track record of that, similar to Sheedy and Newell at Waterford.

It's not great either - defence is/could be solid IFFFFF everyone stays fit.  But midfield is imbalanced and small and Parson's an unknown and probably shouldn't be starting early doors

I think itís safe to assume that we will sign some other players. Just pointing out that if those players stayed fit, augmented by new players, weíd have a fighting chance.

McGreal's first and only official working week at Swindon Town.

Day 1 in the Office - Okay, this ins't ideal but I can work with it.
Day 2 in the Office - I have six people ready to sign. A delay? Why's that? Sorted soon? Okay. Fine. Hmmm.
Day 3 in the Office - Let's put a message out to the fans - We can do this! How's that delay going? Ongoing? Hmmm.
Day 4 in the Office - What do you mean you're all going? I was told... Oh forget it. I don't think this is going to work.
Day 5 in the Office - We're off. Byeeeee.

It's not 'great', but does anybody really expect that to be our starting XI?

There is a 'decent' team in there, not a great one, and it will certainly be added to.

Hopefully McGreal leaving doesn't affect the signing of Wollacott and Sweeney as both can't officially sign until 1st July.

Similar to the Akinfenwa deal under under Sturrock.
