Time to concentrate on what matters
Have to make the following points on the on going issues of pointing fingers of blame and who I believe we should be venting our anger at if investment into the playing squad does not happen or the quality of players brought in is poor
Old Board/shareholders as with any business have a right to sell their shares in the company which is Swansea City
The Trust for what ever reason did not at the time sell their shares
The Trust say they were kept out of initial negotiations - The Old Board/selling shareholders say they notified them about an agreement to sell
The fact is, as an elected Board of Swansea City, Including the Trust there was not sufficient due diligence carried out in ascertaining who the buyers were IE 2 individuals or as is now known 27 individuals and putting on hold the completion of the sale without guarantees
The sale was made by those who sold, to make money.
The Trust has always stated that they are there to protect the fans, so whether they could have sold at the same time or in future matters, but is irrelevant to the clubs current situation.
The consortium of 27 is not a good set up for investment into the business which is Swansea City pure and simple too many small investors
But the fact remains:
HJ and other shareholders had a right to sell but obviously did not give enough thought about the club for actual investment.
Surely with continued Income from Premier League they could have borrowed more funds to improve the team
What is the point of a bank balance being in the black or minimum overdrafts/loans if the business needs to spend money to progress, They could have borrowed funds.
Being Prudent they looked to sell. Great Idea, benefit the club.
Cannot see direct investment from the new owners.
They have bought shares to make money from dividends, that can be the only real scenario with 27 investors
Two things currently matter
HJ is effectively an employee of the main shareholders as chairman - so nothing will be achieved with continued abuse towards him
The new owner need to sort out investment into the playing squad or sell up to someone who will invest
Personally this is where would I wish to vent my frustrations to
The New Owners - they have stated they came on board to take the club to the next level
Then actually do it
The thing is if the new owners actually had already invested in the team there would probably be no issues from the fans towards the old shareholders.
So Levien and Kaplan stump up the cash
This is what I am calling for
Other than this I believe any further venting of anger towards others is now a waste of time and only goes to work against our team
This is my one and only time I hope to comment on the subject
Any responses will be read by me with great interest the same as all the posts that I read on this site I am interested though to find out if there are many that may agree with the sentiment of my post
Before any one calls me a HJ sympathiser I am not I believe he owed more to the club than to sell just for profit - but what is done is done
Need to focus on the here and now
