Blimey, that was quick, either Lee didn't say much or the reporter forgot to switch on his recorder - how are the Adver going to fill a double-page spread?

Anyway, good luck Lee.

An honest approach and straight to the point.

I hope that the strengthening of the squad means an end to the speculation that Fodders, Pritchard, Mason et al will be moving on in Jan. If the squad is to be strengthened, then all must stay - stability also means continuity.

We need some stability at this club as us out of all the clubs in the football league for a long long time have had so many roller coasters with owners and financial issues.
Fair play to Lee Power for giving it straight and like most fans i would rather be told the facts rather than all the rumours that fly around and then get blown out of proportion of the true facts.
On the down side if we have money to last until the end of the season there is either or needs to be other investment coming in which i would imagime he would be working on or the likes of Wes will be sold in January if not in the summer. Not something i want to say or want to happen but we have to be realists. The premier league sucks the rest of us dry and couldnt give a toss about lower league sides and that is the fact of life for lower league teams.
I'm glad the vision is still to get to the championship and maybe its not this season but i think this is a learning curve for alot of people at the club ie Mark Cooper the young squad we have and if they can pick up invaluable experience from this season and we can keep the majority of the team together and improve in certain areas of the team we could have every chance next season. I still think if we can get a couple of additions in january in certain areas of the team we can still make the play offs.

Agree with everything you say, LeGod. Power sounds like a no-nonsense type who is not going to promise the earth. As others have said stability is more important than lots of empty promises.

A few interesting snippets from the press conference.

No other investors planned at the moment and will lee not be selling out for a quick buck., this tells me two things, ground development has been put on hold as surely an investor would be needed and the mention he is here for the long term looks like a little dig at Jed for making a short term profit.

The fact he mentioned the wage bill would be reduced again, suggest Fodders will be on his way in January, I hope it is not to B'muff though. Finally the appointment of a general manager obviously has to happen, the name of Steve Anderson was mentioned yesterday and if he is a trusted lieutenant of Lee, then I'm guessing he will be appointed to look after things at the CG.

Sounds like Bournemouth are looking to buy Lee Camp who's on loan there at the moment as keeper unless that is a Red herring being put about but im sure there will be other clubs looking at Wes which if he did go Bournemouth would be a bad move, a small club that are over achieving and for how long, if he went there he could be back in L1 quicker than he thinks. There sliding down the league at the moment and with Reading to play tomorrow they could be sliding even more hopefully.
I would hope we could keep Wes until the summer at least.

Lowering the playing budget mean getting the likes of Benson< Navarro and Troy off the books next season, not the selling of Sir Wes. Of course it may mean both but nothing like a good bit of pure speculation.

I'm particularly delighted with the no other investors. I don't like cloak and daggers as it generally means you've got something to hide......

Everything crossed.

Why does it suggest Fodders is on wa.

Surely it means he wants to get Rooney, Benson, Williams, Navarro, Cox and Archibald-Henville off the books.

The areas of the team Mark would like to srengthen - presumably centre back and centre back.

I though the goal was Premiership from the statement the other day, or did I read that wrong?

We don't need any more investment - we have demonstrated to the FL we have enough to the end of the season....does this mean we don't need to sell Wes?

Howdy Dreamo, agree with you that lowering the budget should mean getting a few of the unused players off the books but a little disappointed at no other investors coming in, althouth i believe that will change in a short while.

London Red says...

There is a really good interview with Lee on the BBC website
.
He said the medium term goal is the Championship and once there it will be reassessed and look at the ultimate dream of the Premiership
.
He also said that we are in the best financial shape the club has been in for 10-15 years (and thanked Black for the W/O in aiding this) and said we are under NO PRESSURE to sell as finances are in place until the summer
.
When asked about Wes directly - he said he will only go if (a) a silly money offer comes in or (b) he asks to leave
.
As for finances beyond the summer he said once the last 3 (??? thought it was more but hey ho) big earners are off the books we will be standing on our own two feet - so no investment needed - he clearly said the wage bill was what was killing the club - so once that is under control it can breath again
.
He then said once we go up we will start to make money and investment would only be needed then if a new strategy being adopted - i.e. gamble on the Premiership or new Stadium
.
He said he will be here for 5, 6 or more years until the goal has been achieved - he obvious is he for money as everyone is - but thinks it comes from sucess on the pitch not from quick sales
.
He also said one other will join the board (Croach?) and a new General Manager will be employed. He said being overseas will not be an issue due to technology of today
.
All sounds good to me but would like a few items tackled either by Sam in his speard tomorrow or on the phone in on Monday
.
1) Can he update us on unpaid bills - were these just rumours, blown out of propoertion half truths or actually what is going on - also how is this being addressed?
.
2) What is Jed's involvment going forward? What will happen to his 40% of the club?
.
3) What is silly money - we have heard £500k being enough for Wes - I don't count that as silly money - I'm more in line with PdC's assessment on Ritchie when the same rumours were about - £2m is silly money
.
4) Will we buy more like Byrne and Luongo if they come available? Or will we only be looking at the likes of Kassim and Bedwell? (No disrespect to those guys - just these were free transfers we signed)

Quite agree with most of what you have said, howver did you know that The Idiot signed Troy for three years and not the normal two . He will take some buying off. What has happened to Rooney, has he gone. I read there was a meeting, but no comment after that one way or the other. Williams is on big money too, but as you sort of point out, he will be another that is gone. Feel sorry for him that things haven't worked out as we all hoped for.

We need Wes to stay for sure the rear guard is shakey enough, and without him it would be catastrophic.

The things that really make a club at our level sustainable, and which it would be interesting to hear from Power about, include:

1. Coaching. Improving the ability and hence the value of our own players (was always miffed that PDC didn't seem interested in this)
2. Scouting. We used to have a chief scout and a scouting network. Until recently we've relied on agents and You Tube, and more recently, on Spurs. We need to discover more Austins (or Coxes)
3. Youth development. Grow your own
4. Marketing. Have to get more fans through the gate; our attendances have been low/static for far too long compared to what we used to get.

For What It's Worth..... says...

AV - don't think they are too challenging questions - he said best financial shape - aged debtors doesn't fit that description to me! Also saying we won't accept below a number with 7 figures is not too much to ask for with regard to Wes! And no shame in saying its free transfers only - plenty of talent to get from that!

Ging - Mark Cassidy tweeted something about not being surprised Tom Daley was a "poof" - which in today's environment is hardly a major insult but guess to some it maybe so club have to take the moral high ground
.
LP - agree about coaching - that is certainly where we will make money and on Williams it seems we have a top quality coach to assist with this
.
Scouting seems to have seemed to be vastly improved I the 6 months since Power arrived - i.e. Kassim - I hD never heard of him and I doubt many other would have either - we the have Godwinjist signed and a bid for a non-league CB rejected showing we are looking in different places
.
Also we have got El Gabbas and Tijane so our met is obviously wider than the UK- Tijane nearly signed for Chelsea for €1m!!!!!
.
Youths???? We offered more than before contracts and the Thonpsons are certainly getting game time - guess it all depends are they good enough?
.
Would rather sign a Byrne , Luongo, Kassim or Ranger of they will make it compared to a youth
.
Marketing - yep no arguements there! I still don't get why they don't advertise more by the magic roundabout - the busiest area of town! Stick promotions etc up there so loads of people see it las they drive by!
.
Jock - was that short enough for you? :0)

JB is going to have a field day - with that error! . Thought I might come back after months away initially under a new name and then thought better of of it - but left my phone logged in a FWIW! .

There is a really good interview with Lee on the BBC website

He said the medium term goal is the Championship and once there it will be reassessed and look at the ultimate dream of the Premiership

He also said that we are in the best financial shape the club has been in for 10-15 years (and thanked Black for the W/O in aiding this) and said we are under NO PRESSURE to sell as finances are in place until the summer
.
When asked about Wes directly - he said he will only go if (a) a silly money offer comes in or (b) he asks to leave
.
As for finances beyond the summer he said once the last 3 (??? thought it was more but hey ho) big earners are off the books we will be standing on our own two feet - so no investment needed - he clearly said the wage bill was what was killing the club - so once that is under control it can breath again
.
He then said once we go up we will start to make money and investment would only be needed then if a new strategy being adopted - i.e. gamble on the Premiership or new Stadium
.
He said he will be here for 5, 6 or more years until the goal has been achieved - he obvious is he for money as everyone is - but thinks it comes from sucess on the pitch not from quick sales
.
He also said one other will join the board (Croach?) and a new General Manager will be employed. He said being overseas will not be an issue due to technology of today
.
All sounds good to me but would like a few items tackled either by Sam in his speard tomorrow or on the phone in on Monday
.
1) Can he update us on unpaid bills - were these just rumours, blown out of propoertion half truths or actually what is going on - also how is this being addressed?
.
2) What is Jed's involvment going forward? What will happen to his 40% of the club?
.
3) What is silly money - we have heard £500k being enough for Wes - I don't count that as silly money - I'm more in line with PdC's assessment on Ritchie when the same rumours were about - £2m is silly money
.
4) Will we buy more like Byrne and Luongo if they come available? Or will we only be looking at the likes of Kassim and Bedwell? (No disrespect to those guys - just these were free transfers we signed)
Excellent post London Red, which I enjoyed reading.

I am also pleased that I did not drive you off here, as claimed by the idiot of Witney Green recently!!

I learn't something new today, from a former STFC official, and apologies if this is already common knowledge but don't think so.
I know Nile Ranger came to us from Newcastle but didn't realise he is only on loan and we are paying half of his £10k a week wages.

He was a free agent and had no club as you say due to cancellation of his contract with Newcastle. There is no way Town would be paying 5 grand a week.

Ranger did have his contract cancelled and when at Newcastle was "only" on £7k a week - of which most was paid into an ISA as he has/had a gambling problem - this was all documented in his court hearing
.
So that can not be true - but worth getting Lee to clear up on Monday
.

Great to see you back LR and long may it continue. Shame one or two others would not disappear namely J Butler who I have offered to meet up with and try and sort out his problems like having a screw loose which I would love to fix for him but he's a chicken and hides behind his keyboard all mouth and no action aren't you Butler. I know what you are saying though LR as Butler must be in a nut house most of the day and they let him out in the evenings to post on here.

Obviously it is you that have the memory problem by insinuating the mental capacity of people here and branding them as such.

AGAIN YOU LIE.

Perhaps you should change your name to one more apt, Spineless.

Despite all the invitations you never accept them or show up, Spineless.

As for references to Witney, I think not, I moved, Redhill Joey..

So do something useful, go 5hag a Pineapple, should keep you occupied for while, Spineless.

'On a raft in the quarry

I think it is particularly sad that you have resorted to calling posters on here RETARDS in recent weeks Wizard, which even by your own very sad standards, clearly reaches a new low which is beneath contempt, even for you Wizard!!
So, no credible replies from Wizard or Chish and Fips, or even more recently DKO.

Very SAD men are all of these, what a load of absolute Dicks!!

Chish,

Did you not know,

Splish-splash in the tank,

Spineless JB got caught havin' a crank

Spineless and Faceless he may be.

But he likes to be astride of a big gee-gee

Claims to make money on the turf

But it is the net that he does surf

All he does is fill us with mirth

We laugh at his rants

And giggle at his raves

But attention is what he reaaly craves

Very hard he tries

But continues to tell untruths and lies

One day one of us will look him in the eyes

And just tell him much we all him dispize.

Good to see FWIW back as his true self, was it SfromB that spotted the possibility he may be LR ? Frustrating to see the in-fighting on here again (guilty as charged in an earlier post) but strange that nothing has been said about LR/FWIW being one and the same :-)

Still, pleased most seem to be happier now Jed has gone but I still believe he deserves more credit than he is being given and the quote from LR post about the Radio interview would suggest he wasn't as bad as some moay suggest:

"He also said that we are in the best financial shape the club has been in for 10-15 years (and thanked Black for the W/O in aiding this) and said we are under NO PRESSURE to sell as finances are in place until the summer"

I know he mentions Black but the previous regime must have had some involvement in turning things around. Maybe wrong and he can't talk about it but...

Glad to see the austerity will continue at STFC and that we will hopefully not need to worry about the future quite so much. Good luck to STFC, that is what everyone on here wants, I hope.

As for Wes going ! Maybe if the price is right, which could be the case for any of OUR players, but IMO the more it is talked about the more likely it will happen. So SSSSSSCCCCHHHHHHH (shush).

As for Pritchard, Mason and Hall, that is not in our hands as they are Tottenham property.

AV - don't think they are too challenging questions - he said best financial shape - aged debtors doesn't fit that description to me! Also saying we won't accept below a number with 7 figures is not too much to ask for with regard to Wes! And no shame in saying its free transfers only - plenty of talent to get from that!

Ging - Mark Cassidy tweeted something about not being surprised Tom Daley was a &quot;poof" - which in today's environment is hardly a major insult but guess to some it maybe so club have to take the moral high ground
.
LP - agree about coaching - that is certainly where we will make money and on Williams it seems we have a top quality coach to assist with this
.
Scouting seems to have seemed to be vastly improved I the 6 months since Power arrived - i.e. Kassim - I hD never heard of him and I doubt many other would have either - we the have Godwinjist signed and a bid for a non-league CB rejected showing we are looking in different places
.
Also we have got El Gabbas and Tijane so our met is obviously wider than the UK- Tijane nearly signed for Chelsea for €1m!!!!!
.
Youths???? We offered more than before contracts and the Thonpsons are certainly getting game time - guess it all depends are they good enough?
.
Would rather sign a Byrne , Luongo, Kassim or Ranger of they will make it compared to a youth
.
Marketing - yep no arguements there! I still don't get why they don't advertise more by the magic roundabout - the busiest area of town! Stick promotions etc up there so loads of people see it las they drive by!

Jock - was that short enough for you? :0)

Message to LR; i know we have had our differences in the past but for what its worth im pleased you are back posting (under LR)! Your posts are sometimes contraversial but always interesting. As for the JB situation and double posting, its a shame that this seems to be the focal point of threads rather than Swindon Town FC? Personally i dont particularly care if Wizard and others post under different names but if true why they would do this is a mystery to me? Anyway im relieved to read that LP wants to stick around for the long term and has Championship ambitions, i have always felt that our great club has a lot of as yet untapped potential and under the right owner with vision and a good long term plan can grow and become at the very least a decent Championship club! I am a bit disappointed that Lee is not interested in the ground as at the very least we desperately need Stratton Bank roofed as at the moment we effevtively have a 3 sided ground!

Actually chaps I think it's rather sad, and wizard's "poetic" drivel above sums it up, how you all get so worked up and fuel JB's fire by constantly responding "beats c0ck fighting" as my old dad used to say.
Laz & LR are right there is, to the forum detriment, more emphasis on petty, childish even, squabbling than there is on football related matters. I'll put my hand up and plead guilty to getting involved in the past but let's get back to the footie shall we?

Fair play Jock... trouble is JB is that old woodpecker ... and eventually that irritating pecking gets to you and you retaliate .. will try and keep stum in future if that person tries again with his mystery one man mission.

Gents,
I completely echo Chish above, but have been hounded for three or is it now four years. The Adver know very well what is going on and choose to do nothing. I have been wrongly accused of many things and they allow it to continue. Themire has spread to other posters as well, and they are also wrongly accused.

I'll try take a back seat from here on, and again as Chish says above, apologies, but I dare say he will be back either this evening or on the next Saturday Match Day thread. I hope that you are able to deal with that. He seems to align with Jock, so Jock, I hope you are able to fire some sense in his direction, but according to one of his recent comments he wants this forum closed down and is aiming to achieve just that.

Wiz I have in the past mentioned to JB about his obsession with multiple posting ids and when he is commenting on footie matters he is often very astute.
I'm afraid I cannot influence him regarding this trait other than suggest he leaves it be but I'm not my brothers keeper as they say. I know you've been miffed by myself and JB discussing the gee gees but in fairness that's no different to Dukey & Steve talking fishing really. Which brings me to say once again don't rise to the bait chaps however hard that might be :)
