I think you are taking his point too literally. All DV was saying (I think) was that if it is true that we don't have a pot to piss in (which in itself is debatable)...that has nothing to do with our failure on the field in the final third of the pitch. The point about not wanting to pay win/goal bonuses was an ironic, not literal one.

I just think people need to chill out a bit and stop jumping on everything that everyone says.  Discussions about football, formations and performances are great, exactly what we are all here for, much better than talking about court cases, points deductions and administration..  sometimes these discussions recently seem to turn into the politics thread..

It's not all doom and gloom and it's not all rosey - it's just..  football.

I for one am enjoying watching the team again and not getting frustrated with a poor performance or carried away with a good one - it's league 2, you are going to get both all season - enjoy it you miserable fuckers..

Absolutely but underlines the scale of the shit show exposed and uncovered.
This could have been a lot worse, we all know that but we all want success donít we. Still have a big challenge with the pending Court case and funding could get scrutinised further.
Can only hope we get hit with a suspended sentence and the wrong-doings are directed at the former owner.
Just glad we have a decent legal representative and people known in the right places.

Right now and only an opinion with no facts I would say the delay in the hearing is a positive with only the unknown still hanging over the club. Itís going to happen thus just have to see what unfolds.

Loving the fact though that itís all about football and no daily discussions on the murky World of STFC and the fall outs of individuals and consequences.

Another game to look forward to this Weekend.

I think it's a case of expectations rising based on actual recruitment v expected recruitment. So close to being a force first time!

We (I) have deviated from "stabilise this season, then build".

one point Duke, when you say 'funding scrutinised' are you talking about how we are funded now, how we were funded under power, or our current wage structure/limit?!

This - Better than anyone could have expected with 3 days and we were gone.
We have enough to challenge this season and expectations were a week before the season just to avoid relegation.

Absolutely loving watching Swindon home and away again.

You beat me.
Both previous funding and current funding will be scrutinised.
Our transfer dealings under Power will uncover some real skeletons and a few will be sweating for sure.

Is that a combination of who we are signing (players on Standings books etc) and how we were 'paying' for these signings?

Did hear one very dodgy story years ago regarding the purchase of John Goddard from a source completely unconnected to Swindon, where allegedly (!) to get ahead of the other teams trying to sign him, Power got an aide to gatecrash the meal the Woking chairman was at with half of the transfer fee upfront...all in cash in a Tesco carrier bag Doh . It sounds almost laughable as it's just ludicrous, but was told the story by someone from work at the time who was completely unconnected to Swindon, but was at that meal. Has worried me for years because cash in a carrier bag just screams wrongdoings.

The Court Cases and sale process already managed to squeeze out the fact that Power had accounted for the Ritchie sell on fee in the books as money he had lent the club, and not money from Newcastle/Bournemouth.  So anything is possible.
