SWINDON Town have released a statement regarding the state of ownership of the club.

In it, Lee Power is confirmed as the new owner of the Robins after a transfer of shareholding to his company, Swinton Reds 20 Ltd.

The statement, which is similar to an update issued by Town on Friday before being removed from the club's website, reads: "STFC are pleased to announce the change of ownership of STFC to Swinton Reds 20 owned by Director of Football, Mr Lee Power.

"The change of ownership signals no fundamental changes in the Club but has been executed post the completion of the audit in line with the intent of the consortium led by Mr Jed McCrory who acquired STFC.

"Since the takeover Mr Power has injected £1.2m for a limited period of time to release the embargo enforced by the Football League at the time of takeover.

"Since then he has provided the entire funding to ensure the financial ongoing probity of the Club.

"Mr Power has also furnished the Football League with further proof of funds to underwrite the future liquidity of the Club.

"STFC would like to thank The Football League for its assistance to date."

The statement has been ratified by director Sangita Shah, while the Advertiser understands a board meeting is taking place at the County Ground this morning.

I hope people don't start making negative assumptions about this change. So many erroneous assumptions were made in the early days of this board and most of them were way off the mark.

I'm happy that we've got a board who has brought stability, installed a good manager and brought in some class players, albeit some of them on loan. Well done to all at the County Ground, not a bad bit of work so far.

Not quite sure what lee power has done to upset a lot of swindon fans previously. Whatever has happened in his past business ventures doesn't interest me, maybe I'm putting my head in the sand!! Ultimately tho he seems to be the only one chucking money into the club.

I just hope that this is the last we hear of this kind of thing for a few years. Wouldn't it be great to just follow the team and forget the smoke and mirrors world that is football finance and economics? I know some fans, watching the likes of Bournemouth doing their thing in a higher division, want a foreign owner to put some really big money into the club. I'm not so sure that would be such a good thing in the long run. Such people seem to come and then suddenly go. Anyway, the current price for big investment seems to be a change of colours or a change of name. 'Swindon Spivs'? Hmmm.

I have been watching and reading the postings on this forum over the past couple of days without comment.
Many opinions/comments have proven to be correct, many have not.
Some may still happen given the passage of time.
I for one am grateful for Jeds intervention when we were close to entering administration, and I am also grateful that Lee Power is prepared to put his own money up to fund our loss making club.
I think a little more respect should be shown to the board members of the last 12 months or so as without them we were destined for Conference football.
Time to concentrate on the on field activities and leave the board sort out the financial aspect. They don't appear to be doing such a bad job or we would surely be back in embargo, or even worse.

Bang on well said Oldhamred it really has got to the pits again on this forum and to be honest far too many posters looking for points scoring rather that the task at hand which is the life of our football club. Until such time as facts are printed in black and white I will support the board which does not mean I like them but they are in the hot seat with no alternatives. And for jedthered this does NOT mean I believe every word that Jed says, I do hope that is clear. I would imagine there are many trolls from other clubs posting with so many new names on here lately. Yes Fredi may well be correct but we may well never find out the whole truth so lets deal with facts when they are read out or published.

At the end of the day clubs should not need to have people chucking money in as they as supposed to be businesses. Granted a different type of business but they should still be run to at least break even.

Supporters want a successful club and I count myself as one of them but I think, if nothing else, the last eight months have shown that you can build a team with a chance of providing that success with a sensible budget.

Money, sadly, now rules football. I applaud the financial fair play scheme that has been brought in and hope in the future it will be implemented fully throughout the football world as IMO it may slow down the excesses we now see and start to level the playing field.

Too many clubs, including our own, have been taken to brink. Some clubs will always have more than others but it would be good to see teams being built instead of bought.

So Fredi was right again. He said Power was the owner 6 months ago.

Some fans on this site are too thick to take in and remember what Fredi had been saying. He's been right about pretty much everything.

I wonder if this is why Mr Personality left the club without even a **** of an explaination from Billy. He knew Power had complete control and there would be this *Power* struggle going on in the background.

Am I missing something here - only it states LP has only just taken over control as the NEW owner - not six months ago as you suggest.

A very big factor here now is , will we need to sell Wes after all. Hopefully not.
Power has put in hard cash, brought in players through his Spurs connection. Seems that his mate Crouch has done the audit or at least had it brought about, checking the skeleton in the cupboard count.
I would think that Shah as Jeds person may leave soon, or maybe not. We have to be thankful to Jed for stepping in when others wouldn't. We are playing some decent stuff on the pitch generally and are in a better place than this time last year financially.
A lot to be thankful for this morning. No doubt some will want to pour on the sour element, I just feel they need to take a long hard look at themselves and realize the reality, this club is a money pit, we should all be glad some people are doing their best with their money to change things around., a lot of their money and ticket sales are just the tip of the iceberg when as a club we have so many players that are not fit for purpose, on BiG money. Troy,Navarro, Williams and Rooney all surplus, just hope Power can get rid.

The concern for me is the non payment of bills.
I heard this from someone that a few bills, lets say were not paid and some legal reminders were forthcoming.

At least this should flush out the truth but lets face it if everyone thinks our position is healthy then they can at least think again.

As Supporters sadly it's just another day in the office for us and the same old story.
I just hope short term the news comes out that were are safe for now.
I do though expect Wes to be sold in January to balance the books.

Meanwhile lets hope my 6 numbers come up this weekend.

Tip for Power: Stay clear of the McCrory "Simon and Garfunkel" PR policy of:

"Lie-la-lie
Lie-la-la-lie lie-la-lie
Lie-la-lie
Lie-la-la-lie lie-la-lie
Lie-la-la-la-lie"

(from The Boxer)

Let's hope today is a real turning point in the fortunes of the club.

My thoughts exactly. Too many no-nothing no-it-alls suddenly coming out of the woodwork would imply to me they're folks we've seen before under another name. Still spouting the same conjecture as fact I might add.

Oldhamred's produced the best post in a while on here, which is shocking when you consider it's just common sense and asking for people to reserve judgement before we know what's going on - you'd think that'd be obvious but clearly it needed to be said. Well done Oldham, unfortunately those of us who keep and open mind will continue to do so and those convinced the world's about to end will never listen to you as they've already made up their mind and won't change it for anyone.

Too many no-nothing no-it-alls suddenly coming out of the woodwork would imply to me they're folks we've seen before under another name. Still spouting the same conjecture as fact I might add. Oldhamred's produced the best post in a while on here, which is shocking when you consider it's just common sense and asking for people to reserve judgement before we know what's going on - you'd think that'd be obvious but clearly it needed to be said. Well done Oldham, unfortunately those of us who keep and open mind will continue to do so and those convinced the world's about to end will never listen to you as they've already made up their mind and won't change it for anyone.

I’ve not idea about Power’s credentials as owner. What I do know is that his Tottenham links have enabled us to assemble a squad of players far better than any of us could have hoped when the old guard almost entirely left in May.

Benefit of the doubt until proved otherwise.

Not in everyone's opinion Wiz, Watkins was paid a handsome salary for achieving very little. Agree with you Power is going to have to make an appointment to look after the ship whilst he's out of the country, but I would guess it would be a person he trust from his own business connections.

Without being disrespectful to Jed & Co, going forward I can't see what he may still have to offer to STFC that might be of benefit to the club. Apart from bringing in Nile he has no real say on new players, he's not investing and most of what he tried to do to generate new income from other work streams has not been seen to be a success. Unfortunately the only additional income has come from selling players that were bought by Blacks money, Ritchie Caddis, Collins, Flint and the sell on of Austin probably brought in close to 1.5 million which if true that there was no outlay for Luango would seem to have been swallowed up with season ticket sales to pay for the every day running of the club. They cannot continue to keep selling the family silver, sooner or later there will be nothing left to sell. My personal opinion for what it's worth, I think Jed needs to sell his remaining shares and walk now with the profits he will have made from his £1 investment, as said earlier I fail to see any added value of him remaining on the board as our chairman if his intent is to make money for himself (Seebeck87), rather than for the club. I will of course stand corrected if anyone can say different and enlighten me with any good reason for him to stay for the good of STFC.

December is going to be a very tough month for the Town financially with only the Coventry game to generate income in the league. I would think Stratton Bank will be opened for their fans with the hope they bring 3,000 + with them. Us fans should also try to help and turn out in numbers for that game and for the JPT semi-final. Not only will it be good to give ourselves the chance to get to a two legged area final, but Wembley beckons.

Fredi said 6 months ago that Power has the de facto real owner and Jed was just his ring master whipping up the crowd. Fredi also said that in meetings Power regularly refered himself as the owner. It seems that its taken 6 months for the FL to ratify Powers suitability.

Also as Sam has confirmed on Twitter, Cooper has been refereing to Power as the owner for weeks in not months. Get your head out of the sand and stop being so ignorant.

So one storey has been tied up, Power is now the owner and its likely the ringmaster will leave soon (as Fredi also said 6 months ago). Now we move onto another storey with Powers dodgy past and whether hes part of some commission group to raise the profile of the Spurs players.

I wonder if Fredi can say if there is any millage in this? I suspect Mason, Prictard and maybe even Hall have Janurary deals lined up at other clubs. I fear that once these players leave, so will Power?

So he, as you say he was the owner 6 months ago - now as you say today he is the owner .
Do I assume by that , he is now the legal owner as opposed to the owner in waiting ( 6 months for ratification).
All a bit confusing for the likes of me , I don't know as it seems, how these situations work, but 6 months seems one hell of a long time ... never mind I'll go with the flow on that one ....

Chish, at least you are open and will listen to the point unlike many others on here. I'm glad you've admitted that and I apolgise for calling you ignorant. Ignorants would continue with their viewpoint.

This is why so many like me were getting sand in our forskins since February. The 'real' owner has always been Power but its taken until December for it to all come out. So if its taken this long, just how dodgy is our 'offical' owner to the FL? Is he going to get his money back from his association with the Spurs players being sold to Championship clubs? Thats my worry.

In terms of evidnece and proof, Fredi did present something (consultancy fees to Jedco) to the Trust and The Washbag. Its also Fredi knowing and disclosing the names Hall, Crouch, Power, the 1.2 million being paid back etc etc weeks before Jedco or the adver brought the information into the public domain. This PROVES that Fredi is telling at best the truth or at the very worse a storey losely based around the truth.

This Power issue would explain why Jedco were silient on the neverending transfer embargo that lasted until the last possible minute, the Macdonald resignation etc. Its because he was never really in charge.

This whole saga has now come about because Jedco and Power have fallen out. I always thought that Jedco and Power were in it together but it seems that Jedco has also taken Power for a ride.

Why not make your own mind up instead of listening to what Fredi has to say? Perhaps watching a game of footy at the CG might help also!
Absolutely 100% spot on.

I have made my own mind up and I have done since the start. I didnt believe Jedco since he first spouted "promotion", "we have a significant and similar budget" and "Kevin just has to tell me the players he wants and we'll get them". I also dont believe Jedco's version of events with PDC.

I firmly beleive we would have gone up last year had PDC remained. The extra revenue (Brentford said would be £4m) would have covered the (then) existing expenses. Although I accept PDC would have demanded the budget to be increased again to an unsustainable level.

I dont want a suger daddy (although it would be nice). Fredi implied that the future would be ok with Crouch on board - Or have you all forgotten that as well?

Without wanting to sound line an arcepiece some debates just cannot be had with some people.

Quote :So Fredi was right again. He said Power was the owner 6 months ago. Am I missing something here - only it states LP has only just taken over control as the NEW owner - not six months ago as you suggest. Please explain.
Chish Fredi said 6 months ago that Power has the de facto real owner and Jed was just his ring master whipping up the crowd. Fredi also said that in meetings Power regularly refered himself as the owner. It seems that its taken 6 months for the FL to ratify Powers suitability. Also as Sam has confirmed on Twitter, Cooper has been refereing to Power as the owner for weeks in not months. Get your head out of the sand and stop being so ignorant. So one storey has been tied up, Power is now the owner and its likely the ringmaster will leave soon (as Fredi also said 6 months ago). Now we move onto another storey with Powers dodgy past and whether hes part of some commission group to raise the profile of the Spurs players. I wonder if Fredi can say if there is any millage in this? I suspect Mason, Prictard and maybe even Hall have Janurary deals lined up at other clubs. I fear that once these players leave, so will Power?
So he, as you say he was the owner 6 months ago - now as you say today he is the owner . Do I assume by that , he is now the legal owner as opposed to the owner in waiting ( 6 months for ratification). All a bit confusing for the likes of me , I don't know as it seems, how these situations work, but 6 months seems one hell of a long time ... never mind I'll go with the flow on that one ....
Chish, at least you are open and will listen to the point unlike many others on here. I'm glad you've admitted that and I apolgise for calling you ignorant. Ignorants would continue with their viewpoint. This is why so many like me were getting sand in our forskins since February. The 'real' owner has always been Power but its taken until December for it to all come out. So if its taken this long, just how dodgy is our 'offical' owner to the FL? Is he going to get his money back from his association with the Spurs players being sold to Championship clubs? Thats my worry. In terms of evidnece and proof, Fredi did present something (consultancy fees to Jedco) to the Trust and The Washbag. Its also Fredi knowing and disclosing the names Hall, Crouch, Power, the 1.2 million being paid back etc etc weeks before Jedco or the adver brought the information into the public domain. This PROVES that Fredi is telling at best the truth or at the very worse a storey losely based around the truth. This Power issue would explain why Jedco were silient on the neverending transfer embargo that lasted until the last possible minute, the Macdonald resignation etc. Its because he was never really in charge. This whole saga has now come about because Jedco and Power have fallen out. I always thought that Jedco and Power were in it together but it seems that Jedco has also taken Power for a ride.
Have you and your mates not had a decent shower or bath since February ?

I find that blinking sand gets everywhere and you need a good rinse after a day on the beach.

Mmmm quotes:

"Promotion" - would have been popular if he had said "I don't think promotion will be a viable option".

"Similar budget" - Any time frame mentioned ? Did a backer not drop out shortly after this ? Did we keep the squad together til the end of the season ?

"Players" - Embargo, was this foreseen by the Phophet ?

Congratulations on identifying that Jed has been an unfortunate scapegoat for some pretty nasty comments. You say you don't want a "sugar daddy" but don't seem acknowledge that it is the possibility that the club could now be moving to the sustainable model that was also a target of the new board but never mentioned.

People will debate with you, as long as you dont refer to your IQ. They have their views which are sometimes opposed to yours but they prefer to have their thoughts backed up by someone other than a poster on an internet forum. We are not ostriches and we are not ignorant.

I'd be interested to know what you now think the future is. I am quite optimistic and see the possibility of a stable self-sustaining football club in the near future. A football club that may be able to look to the future and develop. I blame it all on the board, whoever they are.
