Yeah this was just 'restructuring' from memory.

Was Kiely listed as non-exec director in the programme?

Swindon Town Supporters Club

The Club have been in contact with us, to say that a number of seats were vandalised in the Town End on Tuesday night.
There have also been issues with fans vandalising the toilets in the Town End for 2 games prior to this.
The Club rightly points out that vandalising the facilities is not the right way to support STFC, and time and money spent on repairing this damage reduces investment in other areas.
The Club has stated that if they do find anyone vandalising Club property, then they will be banned from attending matches.
Please, all of you, be vigilant in supporting the Club in this, and if you witness any further incidents, please report to a steward or STFC directly.
Thanks


Behind SL or not this is unacceptable, on our own patch or elsewhere.  Disgusting behaviour.

I'm growing really sick and tired of Town fans. Not you lot obviously.

Gillingham away completely alienated me from some of our fans. Ashamed to be associated with those baying buffoons at the end. Utter neanderthals. A minority thankfully

I see someone has uploaded a pic of Tuesdays programme and it lists Chris Kiely as a Director alongside Clem. So appears more than just a non-exec role and makes it appear that there will be financial interests. Transparency eh...

This Chris Kiely thing needs to be cleared up asap. Completely agree that if the club has stated it's going to be completely open and honest with the fans, 'secretly' adding a director goes against this. I know there is a Q and A at the club on the 28th of this month so I think it needs to be cleared up by then. A more cynical person my imply that the announcement of the third shirt was an attempt at a smokescreen/distraction.

Couldn't agree more - took my 10 year old daughter and the atmosphere created by some was totally unacceptable.  Not sure I'll be repeating that in a hurry.

Little moan.

Mate got the wrong size shirt at the shop. Didn't try before you buy. Doesn't live in Swindon.

Is the procedure
  1. Ring up and ask to swap it out, they'll say they'll put one aside and he'll swap on return
  2. Get told to buy another one online when available, then bring the wrong one back and get a refund. Oh, and you can't buy it over the phone because they can't do phone sales.

Most peculiar. NO problem for us in town, but poor for out of towners

edit: ah, maybe they don't have the stock

Hello all!

I saw that my mentioning of Kiely on a recent episode of LSPOD created a bit of conversation here. I've sort of withdrawn from social media quite a bit over the last few months so I hadn't realised that this was an unanswered aspect of the club set-up nor do I think anything is in any way sinister here.

Chris 'CK' Kiely has been on the scene a little while and is a regular at the CG (including last season). He's not hid away etc. sometimes even high-fiving players post-match and all that.

Kiely, I believe, aspires to achieve things in football akin to what Brentford and Brighton have done. Sandro Di Michele is his friend/colleague from the racing world and that's how he's ended up here. If it goes well, huzzah! If it goes badly then Kiely and Di Michele go back to the drawing board but Swindon Town are left in League 2.

My concern, which has also been raised by various posters on here over the last couple months, has only ever been why has Morfuni et al given so much responsibility to relative football rookies?

The answer to this is probably 'because he's the owner and can do whatever he damned well likes' which is fair enough to a degree but he will be left to answer this if it was to not work out (which is no different to any project/experiment).

And I guess the main question would be - what is he bringing to the table?  He seems to have retired from football at a young age and then there is very little in the public domain for anyone to determine anything further.

I would expect someone who is appointed to the Board (as this seems) to have a little bit of fanfare - that's where you get the worry - "why didn't they say anything?".  Also, most people wouldn't have a Scooby who he is or that he has been around for a while.

I kind of get we are trying something different, and you don't want or need Dinosaurs around to carry that through, but, we do seem incredibly raw when it comes to experience at every level of the club (for the positions they hold).

Hes an Aussie. Not likely to have a little black book of contacts within UK football.

Hes relying on people knowing more than him.

It may work out. It may not.

Last season's black shirt didn't fit properly so I rang emailed the shop & ask if I could go up a size, they said yes & did put one by for me to go & exchange which I did, dunno if that helps.

Cheers for popping over the parapet Rich. Is the fact that CK hasn't been officially announced by the club just that he's a shy and retiring person and wants to be involved behind the scenes do you think? I assume that Chorley leaving was because of the change of direction to the Brentford/Brighton model presumably directed (and agreed by Clem/RA?) by CK? Is it fair to say Sandro and CK are a package?
