The share percentage appeared to be hugely important for those selling to the current ownership...

Irrespective of the importance of the wider fan base (and I agree with that) the fact that the Trust own 21% of the club should not be so easily dismissed. It is not irrelevant. Being treated as irrelevant is what has caused many of the problems. Every 1% the Trust own should have been as important as every 1% the others owned.


The trusts mistreatment is becoming the real elephant in the room.

How on earth do they hope to improve “fan/community engagement” while the past mistreatment, and current dispute with the fans representatives remains unresolved.

No, you didn’t give that impression at all.

I was trying to explain why I didn’t like the comment that was made by Birch, if accurately reported of course.


No worries Lisa. Playing devils advocate, I guess he was treading on eggshells with the fan connection question, whatever his answer.
Hopefully everyone will come closer together, but there are obviously massive hurdles in the way.

Because nothing from the wider fan base shows them they care?

Birch's response, as he is employed by the Hedge Fund, is not a surprise he's not going to be positive about the Trust with the possibility of a court case.

Working on an average of £400 per season ticket that’s a reduction of £1.2m in revenue, there will also be the knock on from sales on match days. A good start to the season may see interest and sales pick up.


As much as it hurts them many fans have stated that'll they'll not be putting any money into those Yanks pockets ,it's as simple as that

Most of the fanbase are not arsed about the Trust, which is reflected in the membership numbers.

If they get the 10,000+ non Trust members on board, then they're laughing aint they.

I want a mate like Flashberryjacks, who wears a Barnsley jersey with "Swans are my second team" on the back.

Sad but true.

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.

Not sure if I'm misunderstanding your post, ignore me if I am. But the impression I got was that he wasn't so much dismissing the Trust's importance, just stating that the club needs to work better with the fans and local community anyway. Both with and without the Trust.

Certainly didn't come across as though he was understating their importance in any way.

That's pretty shameful and embarrassing. We've basically not grown as a club or gained any fans after all those years in the Prem, winning a trophy or playing in Europe.

Very sad and disappointing.


What the hell did you expect after the way things have gone? Lock out's every game with thousands of fans trying to force the gates open to get in? We are not Newcastle, Villa or Derby. We are us, Bolton or Burnley who incidentally couldn't fill their grounds in the Prem let alone the Championship. Yet most would say they are bigger clubs than us.

This is the first season in a long while where I feel the kids don't have a hero to put on their shirts. If we are on the road to loans and freebies you can knock another 2k off for season tickets for the following season.

I wasn’t there, and already mentioned being unsure whether it was accurately reported or not. ECB has made the same point.

As I said, I agree with working with the wider fan base. I just don’t like the dismissal of the share holding, but that might just be the way it’s come across in the tweet.

I’m afraid that many fans would not care about very much at all if only we were to shell out £10m on a centre forward. Such is life.

Sometimes I really do miss the days when we struggling towards the bottom of the third division.

Not saying I want us to be back there at all, far from it! But in all that we have gained, something has been lost from those days.

It makes you wonder why the Supporters Trust aren't backed with greater membership since they are the voice of the fans. Maybe many fans have lost faith in the Trust?

In fairness, i think it would have been a good idea for the Trust to have been actively represented tonight. If they weren't, that's a bad call imo.

The Trust has let the fans down by not going to war when the sell-outs sold out without informing them .Phil stated at the time it was an illegal move by the sellouts and the trust had a document proving this ,...…………. WHAT HAPPENED, nothing that's what happened


very sad
