I remember him trying to buy Gainsborough's ground, which was owned by a fan's trust, but they refused to sell. I suppose you had no say in the matter.It isn't his money, it's his wife's.
Swann's big issue is he promises too much and talks too much. He promised a shiny new stadium and exciting football, we've got neither. I do feel sorry for him with regards to the stadium, he was completely screwed over and essentially robbed of millions by the council. I know he's still fighting to get that back.
Another one of Swann's issues is that he listens to the fans too much. Football fans are emotional, chairman shouldn't be. Him sacking Graham Alexander due to fan pressure was a really bad move, loads of our fans now act like they didn't want him gone though which is stupid.
The thing that really turned fans on Swann recently was him selling the ground to himself and asset stripping the club. He sold the ground to himself for payment of £11m of debt that he'd racked up.
The club is in a really bad state, if we get relegated there is a good chance we will go out of business.
