Hello Stewart Very Happy

No seriously, welcome and thank you for posting. If you have any knowledge of SAFC and our recent history you will understand our caution and even scepticism, but my goodness if this turns out well for us then Eastleigh will be my second team from now on Very Happy
I am not Stewart but i can understand your concerns. He really is someone who will listen to fans and interact with them. He also has a strong community ethos. I will expect to see you in our end at Gateshead and Hartlepool when we play them and also when we have a pre-season friendly. Very Happy

If he does take over his main experience will be based on Eastleigh and Oxford and with all due respect there is no comparison to us.  Not many can logically explain how we ended where we are but a big vision is needed to restore us quickly, otherwise we will stagnate into another backwater.  People are comparing us to Wolves and their recent history, but it has taken five years to get back into the Prem. It is either that or we go for a financially restricted build-a-team approach.

Anybody prepared for that?

Competitive as in League 1 finance, or ruthless in our determination.

A nice play on semantics.

For example, he is simply the front man for the consortium of foreign business men, he allegedly spent £10 million trying to get Eastlleigh promoted to the lower football league, he has changed manager a few times during his tenure. During the past few days I have given the situation a lot of thought and then I remembered the guy who announced that he had taken control of Manchester United, I think when Edwards wanted to sell. After a few days of high profile publicity including this guy standing on the pitch at Old Trafford doing keep ups with a football he suddenly disappeared never to be heard of again. I hope that I am totally wrong and if I am I will return to my little dark fantasy world and promise never to have such thoughts ever again. Please, someone tell me I'm wrong.  affraid
The guy at ManU was Michael Knighton and there is plenty about about him on Google to keep you entertained about his football achievements. The fans and manager were all for him just to replace a stingey Edwards!  They did however follow his financial plan and floated on the Stock Market and the rest is history.

If he had taken ManU over they would have been where we are now.
