We WANT our Swindon back.

 I am sure that is what everyone wants. But it won't happen unless owned by the supporters .

If the Trust wasn't an extension of the ownership, they'd have recognised the part they'd played in this disaster, called an EGM, cleared the decks and got in a position to apply pressure on Morfuni whilst he is here in the UK for the next few weeks.

As it is, most of them are on their valedictory lap on social media, with everyone telling them what a great job they did.

Clem has understood the power of PR in a way his predecessor never did. Staying close to the Trust, appointing Angus, bringing Don Rogers in, Michael Doughty, pulling pints etc etc. Most fans who don't dwell in the darker corners of Companies House or the Advisory Board minutes don't have a clue what is going on, who Zav Austin is and so on.

I honestly think our goose is cooked this time.

Realistically, unless it got to the point of liquidation and starting from scratch I can't see that happening.

We also shouldn't be ignoring that fact that our club is being destroyed yet again

Agreed the trust can't and won't get involved which is sad. There are enough pod costs out there with enough followers to start organising the masses though.

Based on the good pr clem did though on your list, Angus gone, doughty gone. Is beyond Don Rogers remit as a swindon fan to speak against the club?

Assuming Rob is tied up with nda's

Already gaining momentum need someone graphic/designer to print some posters to hand around!

Or boomerangs. Only problem is that they'd fly back and whack people in the face!

Maybe toy koalas/kangaroos. That would get noticed by the Australian press, surely?

Is there a Ned Clemmy pun…? Maybe… or maybe not!

Simple way to protest is simply don't attend the next home game. And possibly the next and next.

How will that have any effect? Its avoiding the issues and giving clem a free ride.

Long term it will effect the clubs finances- would it force the owners hands to sell? Possibly. But it would also fuck the club up even more. Owners like this need telling and change to be forced.
