    At least they will always have an unbeaten record there.

    Hasn't there been a long running argument about who really owns Swindon? Both Lee Power and Michael Standing have been involved in FA/EFL disciplinary issues linked to the ownership of Swindon. Maybe it's coming to a head now?

    Hopefully the courts will hurry up and decide so the club can move forward

    You'd hope so. But the High Court hearing on the ownership issues doesn't start until September and unfortunately there seems to be a problem faced by McGreal in getting players into the club because of the uncertainty.

    Rumour has it that he sold up today which is why the manager has left

    I did wonder, but Lee Turnbull is the head of ‘recruitment’, so there doesn’t seem to be a role, in that sort of capacity.

    Whatever the case, Swindon seem to be in an utter state of upheaval. Perhaps . @Swindon@Swindon can shed some light?

    New owner incoming as power is forced by judge to sell up and not to his preferred bidder.

    Told you there was a new owner incoming,
    Just took a while thats all.

    The new guy looks very keen and what the heck is
    "i will provide full transparency of the financial position of the club at all times"

    Never going to catch on here.

    Didn’t Power say similar uplifting stuff when he took over?

    it is one of those hold on and see. There really isn't anything he could say that would make them trust him.

    the fact they only have 9 contracted players and the season starts 2 weeks from saturday doesn't bode well. Don't think they will get relegated but will have a hard time of it. such a mess. feel for the swindon fans.
