Where's all this come from? Normally when a club gets this close to the edge (Boston, Rotherham etc etc) the thing has been rumbling on for months. Surely its not at the winding up stage yet? And what a pity as you look to have a decent outfit this year. Good luck STFC!

I could be quite cruel about this and laugh my head off...but we got through our financial troubles with not much more time to spare than you guys have. Considering what Leeds fans went through, I wish you all the best.

Very sad. Hate to think of any club going through the crap we had to go through. Nobody is sympathetic all they want is for you to go under. I afraid they won`t get any help from any other clubs the F.a or football league.....surely its time that people pulled together when clubs are in trouble instead of trying to finish them off. Sorry Swindon but i don`t think you`ll find a Ken Bates whos willing to bend the rules, fight your corner, and stump up the cash. Even if they did, you then need the players and management staff to do the business while the Fooball League impose more ridiculous penaltys on you. Good luck Swindon, but i fear for you!
