Wannabe Lewis Speaks

Tonight we pick up the Evening Post and there in it’s full (un) glory is the picture of Mike Lewis staring back at us yet again under the headline “LEWIS ULTIMATUM” Now then what can Mike make an ultimatum on?

Well it appears that to complete the deal to buy Swansea City from Mike he had to make a number of payments to him. Correct me if I am wrong but this is the same Mike Lewis that claimed he was getting nothing out of this deal at all. Lie number 6123 in the Lewis book of lies.

The same Mike Lewis that claims he cares about Swansea City, cares so much that he has known about this alleged get out clause since day one and has done nothing as the club goes from one disaster to the other. He sat back and watched as the players had their Christmas ruined by no wages, as did the backroom staff and at the eleventh hour and thirtieth minute he decides “I’ve got a get out clause.”

What does he take us for? Mike, we don’t need you to be a hero, if you had this clause you should have used it back when it would have made a difference not until Petty has made a complete balls up of the club and put it on the brink of ruin. You really are stupid at times and now you put a side of the story and expect people to thank you for it? Get real Mike.

‘A Vetch Field Insider’ believed to be David Bradshaw (when did he become an insider?) was quoted as saying “If a deal is not done with either Mel Griffin or the Palestines within 48 hours, then Mike Lewis will take charge of the club. Mike has the document which says to complete the deal for control of the club, Petty had to make a number of payments to him. Petty has not done that so Mike has a case and he has the full backing of the club’s staff. Mike will then look to hand control to the Griffin or the Mel Nurse consortium, or a combination of the two as well as the supporter’s trust”

Mike has the backing of the clubs staff? Why should he? Would you back a man who has constantly been a thorn in your side for months and stood back on something like this (if indeed he has) whilst you worried where the next pay packet was coming from? I know I wouldn’t.

Mike Lewis is a leech, he has sucked this club dry and remember if Petty had paid him this money, where would it have come from? You guessed it Swansea City AFC. How convenient.

Whoever ends up with control of this football club has to rid it of Mike Lewis amongst other people and if I had my way the man would get a liftetime ban from ever entering the Vetch Field (or the Morfa Stadium) again. We don’t need him and as an indication to the new owners, we invite you to vote in the new poll of whether Mike Lewis should get a lifetime ban.

Hero Mike? Stick to the comic books, you will never ever be a hero in Swansea. What are you planning next? To dish the dirt on your friend Petty?
