A few home truths

It has come to the sites attention that Tony Petty has in some way manipulated various staff writers since last Saturdays story about the non payment of wages at Swansea City FC.

Yes, Petty did speak on Saturday to Phil Sumbler, and agreed that the story which was on the site was true, and that the players and staff had not been paid. He stated that they would be paid on Tuesday ( which happened ) and this was down to a BACS error at Barclays in Bristol.

JackArmy.net would like to make it known to all it’s readers that no matter who is in charge of Swansea City Football Club, that, if mismanagement is seen, and not addressed or as is traditional, LIES surface from the club – Then we will expose it. And in turn whenever there are good things to say, we will do the same. It’s simple. And that goes if Mel Nurse, Tony Petty or Uncle Tom Cobbley is in charge of our club.

We will not show favouritism at any level. We could be on a host of freebies writing nice things about the current Swansea regime, and Keith Haynes as MAGS co-coordinator could have done the same for the past four years. But of course the regime’s have been rotten to the core, full of lies and corruption. And both Keith and Phil chose not to jump on the bandwagon of freebies like many did when Mcclure and Hamer were at the club. Of course they know who they are, and so do we. So lets put the record straight.

Tony Petty will not dictate to this site what we print, how we print it or when. Neil Mcclure couldn’t, Steve Hamer couldn’t and neither will this bunch either. The message is simple – Your not big enough guys, and if you want it – Come and get it. Easy. The FA Cup attendance figure v QPR has been questioned by a number of Swans fans and we question it too.

The health and safety people have been informed of the attendance compared to the official figure, and they differ considerably. What we would like to hear officially is ” What was the real attendance ” And we urge the club to think very carefully before answering. Because we wouldn’t be putting this in to print if we didn’t have the evidence, something we are sure the inland revenue would be very interested to hear about too. And of course the PAYE bill is due soon too, and from the last lot of liars we all know that FA Cup money can easily be filtered away and everyone told that it was to pay the PAYE bill. Remember the two hundred grand that went missing from the Derby County FA Cup tie in 1999 ? Short memories are not found here.Mike Lewis We also question why Mike Lewis is still at the club, and far too close to the daily running and goings on. Every time a cash till is heard his red faced frame appears closeby, salivating and nosing with a big gin in his hand.

This guy is not employed by the club, he no longer has the power to hire and fire yet his frame is seen next to Petty as the ass stuck his tongue out at us all last week after the court case. And Lewis it seems is so thick skinned a rather mincey beating cannot get the message home. Yet he remains, licking his lips and loving the lure – the big question is ” Just when will he be given a real message ” ? Swansea City fans hate you, we don’t want you, we don’t trust you and you are not to feed off us anymore. Your involvement with Newport prior to they’re demise doesn’t exactly fill us with confidence, you were ousted from Tottenham and have little credibility with Reading.

And what about the golf complex business in Spain ? That will be kept for another day along with the people involved, but we challenge Lewis to disagree with this particular story, and look forward to printing it just in time for Christmas.John Shuttleworth Self confessed provider of business solutions to porn actresses eh ? And what other dark secrets do we know about ? Well this is the chief executive of Swansea City FC. Yes, the slime is here. John Shuttleworth, porn agent and failed businessman. And now a Swansea City representative. Oh how far we have come.

And we tip our hats to Don Goss the security freak at the club, and the one who openly supports Tony Petty along with David Bradshaw who we hear is now on some form of fans forum that Petty has set up ! Who does he represent ? Not me, nor anyone I know. And what of Tony Davies? Does he sit on this fans panel too ? And why ? And who is he representing ? It’s anything for a free drink or a bit of recognition without the graft. The battle lines are drawn – It’s still Petty Out and it’s still on the agenda.

And everyone who sides with him gets the same. We must not settle for them just because Mel Nurse couldn’t get the courts to see sense. The record is put straight. And we are ready for round two.For a national perspective on Swansea City FC see this months 442 magazine.
