    If the Trust were so concerned they'd sign the NDA just for piece of mind

    Why should they? They have a 21% shareholding in the club. They shouldn't be threatened for seeing something they should be allowed to see by right. It's a matter of principle. 

    What if they did sign it, and discovered something untoward? 

    They would then be in a position where yes they could go to the police, but they couldn't even turn up at the next Trust meeting or issue an update to tell Trust members they'd done that as that would breach the NDA.

    They couldn't even say there was something up but they can't go into detail, because that would also breach the NDA.

    They'd have a room of 100 people who will know they signed the NDA baying for their blood, demanding they tell what they know, knowing full well they can't. 

    They can't possibly sign that NDA. Think it through!

    When u say they are up to something, are you suggesting they are syphoning money out? The Trust should sign the NDA not that I believe they should but just to call their bluff, I get that Stuart Mc couldn’t disclose but if money was being embezzled then it wouldn’t be the fans Stuart would need to be talking too but the police.
    As we know, Stuart sees the monthly management accounts and any large chunks being moved would be picked up in an instance.
    Jac, that's just the point I was making. You're asking me that question, I don't know. You don't know. None of us do.

    That's my point. If they have nothing to hide, then be transparent. Let the Trust director have a look.

    If they're serious about building bridges - as they keep saying in public they are - then why haven't they been turning up for mediation then trying to blame the Trust for collapsing talks?

    They are typical, modern day corporate scum. Sly, guarded, obfuscating, scheming, motivated purely by self interest.

    They do not have Swansea City's best interests at heart.

    Best season of football since we won the league cup, as close as we have been to that fantastic season of Michu etc ... Is this one. What happens next who knows, but keep these boys together and we are top six contenders next season.

    I think we should all calm down. Yes we won 1-0 at the bottom club, but every time we had to defend a set piece it looked odds on a goal. On top of that KN had to make a complete worldy save to keep the point intact. There are green shoots of recovery, and I have enjoyed our football this year more than any sine the Laudrup days - but we are kidding ourselves if we think we are going to win all of the next 3 with the way we defend. As per Martyn's other thread I am enjoying the aria the the fat lady is serenading us with.

    Sticking my wallet where my dream is. Haven't punted anything since before xmas but just dropped a 100 dollar bill on Swans, Forest, Weds wins today for a pay day of 1,224 profit. Lets keep that dream alive. Would have added Derby to draw or lose but they would only accept trebles and no accies bigger than that. COYS
    Well boys, shame about Derby scoring 4 mins into injury time but the dream is still alive and as per my post above before the game I shall be having some bottles of bubbly tonight and a few classy hookers that do bad things. Off to collect my 1,224 dollars of winnings. Only midday here so plenty of time to plan the night.

    They could livestream their accounts software and fans would still accuse them of ferreting millions out somehow.
