Petty blames Nurse, The North Bank Alliance and anyone else that has upset him since he’s been here. That’s just about every fan that Swansea City have. This club is in the state it’s in because he thought he could make a quick buck out of us, it didn’t happen and as we warned you BEFORE he took over, he hasn’t two pennies to rub together. Of course he is not alone in needing to shoulder the blame.

Mike Lewis and John Shuttleworth are not exempt from guilt and neither should they be nor should we forget that. All three have run the club down resulting in the news on Xmas Eve that ALL staff were not being paid. And now Petty is talking to a consortium?

This one should be interesting. He was not interested when another consortium made an offer back in October but now he is. But, true to form he wants to make a mint out of a football club that before he got here at least had some money. If I bought a car today would you buy it off me in six months time for more money if I hadn’t spent money on it?

Of course, he could be talking to a consortium outside of Swansea but they will fight a losing battle from Day 1. I never trusted outside owners when 9th Floor arrived, it’s impossible for anyone to trust an outsider now. It needs to be local and people we can trust and on this basis I ask Petty to give the club up to the trust, put it in the hands of people that care and I will see him right with his £1.

I’ll eat it and sh t it out first but he can have a £1 off me! Petty – we are not interested in what you have to say we just want our football club back and we want it back now. You have taken something that wasn’t your right to take and you have messed it around. You have ‘rewarded’ staff for hard work with a miserable christmas and you won’t feel guilt.

It’s no-ones fault but your own so look elsewhere for someone to blame. You need to leave and you need to leave now. The time for leving with dignity was long ago so now I say give it up to the trust and walk away while you still can. No threats but you have seen first hand the feelings of some .

Give the club back, cut up your passport and never darken our doors again. Lewis, Shuttleworth – that goes for you too
