- Last Active
The activists went along with the sale in general, but were always very reluctant sellers according to their own statements. Under the disastrous leadership of the former chairman the Trust is now skint and friendless after 8 years in the richest league in the world. Their approach was confrontational and to increase the holding not reduce it. This strategy has failed. I argue that those who argue against cashing in at least some shares now are high risk gamblers who would never behave the same with their own money. The 'all in' bet on SCFC staying in the PL is bonkers and not what the members want. The activists have not accepted the democratic will of the members and have an excessive influence it seems to me.
You say the Trust is skint, not true, £850k in the bank.
You say they should have sold some shares, members voted for this, the Americans pulled out.
You say activists scuppered the deal, the deal could still be on, the Americans only put it on the back burner because at that time we looked doomed and then reneged on the offer made and accepted.
You call them activists, they are fellow Swans fans who, like the Trust won’t bend over at the first sign of the yanky dollar. Good on them I say.
Getting rich overnight yes but it took 13 years hard work. All the Trust had to do is sign a form first time around and organise a few meetings. The guy that screwed up is now asking for donations for the protest group as £20m flows down the Tawe. There is the alternative narrative for the 9-10% with a questioning mind.
It is pretty clear to me why the Trust were kept out of the loop with the share sale. They have had two offers to put things right and not taken either of them. They claim lack of time for offer 1, now after weeks of negotiations they have again come up empty handed. Its an organisation that cannot make agreements and decisions and work on a timescale compatible with the efficient running of a Premier league club.
