If it ends up happening I still think refunds for the City match could be a early defining moment. If they try to wriggle out of or delay refunds then I think a lot of fans will rightly lose patience and questions will need to be answered.

Iím hoping they are being sensible and putting all the ticket money for the City game to one side until the match is played so that it is readily available for refunds should it be required. If they arenít then that raises its own questions about how the club is being runÖ.

On the plus side with interest rates going up 0.1% last week there's a little profit to be made!

that's fair enough Duke. I'm not having a pop, he was literally the only show in town anyway

I get he doesn't have pockets to offset a seasons debts.

what isn't clear is how close to the line we are in day to day operations terms.

I guess things should improve over time on that front

I know you werenít mate.
The biggest challenge of the lot remains when the Courts unearth the true ownership details.
Until the Case is over we are not out of the woods by any any stretch of the imagination.

Christ if the true ownership details come out anything could happen, not even sure Clem comes out of it squeaky clean if that happens.

Nobody will come out of this club squeaky clean even more so the funding.

Not asking for clarity, but I hope that means historic, but I suspect the first bit means current too.

eek.

I think most of the fan base need to adopt a new fan attitude to complement the new ownership. As someone else rightly said many of the fans demanding a bigger playing budget/lower prices  lose their shit because the club is trying to maximise its income from its only customers - the fans.

If Clem is to be believed (and I believe him) STFC is being run as a not for profit organisation. Otherwise known as a charity.
That's the mindset the fans need to adopt for now IMO.

Unfortunately that could well be true. Could easily argue even now the source of funding to the club hasnít really changed from the days of Power, just the front man.  Will be interesting how much detail comes out in the court case with regards to some of non-execs and lurkers in the background.

Talking of which, did Zav's application for "board membership" (director?) get rejected by the EFL, or is it ongoing?

Its all gone very quiet on that. Obviusly he's still involved and around.

STFC seems to have had more twists and turns than Silverstone.

Suggest we were all aware Di Canio's would end in tears and his reign was a train crash waiting to happen. Surely no one could have thought it would take this long and could be as big as it appears.

Really hope that this wheeling and dealing including double dealing is coming to an end and some stable times are coming in the future.

Heís very much still involved, last thing I heard he was in Karachi earlier in the month meeting some politicians to support football over there, they referred to him as Swindon Town vice chairman.

My reasoning in bringing up the Di Canio period was surely if Town had gotten a more conventional manager during this period possibly just possibly Black would not have thrown his toys out the pram and open the club up to Jed and his peers and then chancer Power could have been owning Rochdale or better still the Pox.

Such a shame really. COYMRs

I was under the impression that Clem Morfuni and Austin were the guys who made the FA aware of what was going on once they realised
