SWINDON TOWN: THE VIC MORGAN COLUMN: All we want is a safe future
6:00am Thursday 5th December 2013 in Sport
SO, what should I write about this week then?
It’s sometimes difficult to come up with a topic when the club you support is so stable. It seems that nothing ever happens at the jolly old County Ground.
Yes, obviously I’m speaking nonsense. And I know it’s not for the first time.
We’ve just had another of those Swindon Town weeks when the last thing that gets discussed is the action on the pitch. By the way, we won 3-1 against Carlisle on Saturday.
In years gone by all we heard about from football clubs was the news of any transfer or managerial change. Matters in the boardroom didn’t interest fans. Be it the local butcher, baker, candlestick maker in charge, we didn’t really care. Now it’s all about who’s in control, what their strategy is and how long it will take to get to Fat Cat Land (the Premier League).
We know more about what stake so and so has in a club than how serious A Player’s thigh injury is. Do we need to know? How much do you need to know about the goings-on behind the closed doors of the directors’ quarters? Well I would suggest you need to know this - the truth about the club’s financial situation and how stable it is.
And I mean the truth.
How secure is the manager’s position? What money may or may not be there for new players. Apart from that I care little about who owns what and who says what to who.
You see, all I really care about is what happens on the green bit of the County Ground. You know, the bit where the ball is played around, a little too slowly perhaps at times, and how it makes me feel after a game.
Over the years I’ve dealt with many people in power at Swindon Town. Most have one thing in their mind, and that’s to make the club successful. I wish Lee Power well. I don’t know him, he doesn’t know me.
Rest assured I’ll back him to the hilt if he’s genuine in his plans for the Town. That’s all we ask. Be genuine in what you intend. We know we have to be realistic. No pie in the sky please, just straight talking and honest dealings.
Don’t promise the earth if it isn’t there. All we want is a safe and secure future for the club we love and follow to ridiculous degrees.
