New director bans Burgess

The battle lines have been drawn and it’s now a clear case of us and them! With the banning of Martin Burgess, Goss has set a dangerous precedent that will anger all Jacks. This is the very same Don Goss who stated, only two weeks ago, that, the best thing for the club would be for Mel Nurse, Martin Burgess and Tony Petty to sit down together and sort out the current situation.

So what’s changed since then Mr Goss? Maybe the small matter of Petty winning the court case and giving you a lucrative place on the board alongside himself and close personal friend/housemate John Shuttleworth perhaps?

Also Don, are you sure that you can hold both your current job titles at the Vetch? Surely being a director of the club and the stadium manager/safety officer is a conflict of interests isn’t it??? I’m sure the relevant authorities will have an opinion on that little matter!!!

Maybe you’d like to start banning everyone who backed Mel’s court case Don? Then again that would be a bad idea wouldn’t it?Because If you did that, the Swans would be playing they’re next home game in front of the occupants of the directors box!!! oh yes, and Tony Davies of course, at least he’d be safe on the North Bank on his own though eh?

Who’s next for Don’s treatment then ladies and gents? The trust committee perhaps? Phil Sumbler, Gary Martin, Nigel Saunders, Keith Haynes, myself and anybody else who dares to speak out against the current regime via unofficial websites? Why not go all the way and ban each and every trust member Don? I’m sure you’ll be quite willing to walk into the North Bank and do it!!!

How much lower can this “bullyboy regime” get? So far we’ve had, players sacked, star players sold for next to nothing, attempts made to sell Freestone and Sidibe and even Petty sticking his tongue out at us from the pages of the Evening Post!!!

Swansea fans have been treated like dirt for far too long, and now it has to STOP!!! My grandfather supported this club, as did my father, and I want my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren to also have that privilege. It’s OUR club and we’ll be here long after we’ve driven this bunch of “chancers” out!!!

So, a message to Petty, Shuttleworth, Lewis and Goss, If you want a war, a war is what you’ll get!!!

We’ll never give up and we’ll never be beaten. The Jacks will not sit back and watch you systematically destroy our club, we’re too proud and too strong to ever let that happen!!!
