    Dan McDonnell was saying on off the ball last night that Bircham was famous at QPR for dying his hair blue. Heard of him as a player. He could have declared for the ROI but was a ex Canada international.

    Mouthy and nasty player at times, and I liked going to see QPR. Seems the Power kind, maybe he has mellowed.

    Lee Power confirmed he has sold the club. No further details given.
    Waterford set to launch a complaint.

    As always with new LOI investors, without any details on them, it’s hard to know if these new guys will be good for the club or run it to the ground but it looked like Lee Power was well on the way to doing that anyways.

    Hopefully for the fans these new guys can run the club professionally after the last few years of chaos

    Just done a bit of research on UK Companies House.

    Only one result I could find for Richard Forrest and R&S Holdings Ltd (which is actually listed as R&S Forrest Holdings Ltd of Chelmsford, Essex)

    If it’s the same people - the other companies they own are two day nurseries and a Montessori School.

    Something doesn’t feel right with these lot to be honest…

    Seen it reported already that they may be signing the new owners son.

    Good to hear there won't be much changing so.

    In fairness that wouldn’t bother me too much because the squad is utter wa*k. I wouldn’t read too much into it either.

    For all the bad that went on under Power, he did save the club and leave it in a better place that what it was when he took it on. I’ll give him credit for that but by god did some bizarre **** go on over the 4.5 years. Things started to go downhill when we were refused entry to the europa league. But the club has been pure toxic for the past 18/24 months because a particular individual calling the shots behind the scenes. That man in question has been retained and that concerns me but Forrest has brought in a business associate of his, as new club chairman. Forrest sounds like he’ll be a lot more involved then Power had been so hopefully that minimises the level of power and control Rub has. Serious work needs doing on and off the pitch. Since Rub essentially took over the running of the club from Fenlon the clubs professionalism dropped immensely. It’d be great to see us operate like a half functioning football club again.

    Gives us a fighting chance for the rest of the season, the new manager has been a breath of fresh air since he has come into the club. There already seems to be a good level of rapport between owner and manager, it’s welcoming to hear that the owner has sat down and had a proper discussion with the manager and made a plan going forward with regards trying to stay up. That’s been missed hugely in recently years. Rub rightly ****ed us over this year if rumours are believed to be true.

    Is that LPs spell as football owner gone for good now? It reminds me of when he was a player once promising but lost his way somewhat!

    He is still the majority shareholder of Swindon. Think has 85% which could drop to 35% pending the ongoing court case in the UK, the minority shareholder has been trying to buy the club for some time now but Powers been adamant to flog Swindon to some unknown ‘US’ group but the courts have blocked it.

    That club is a bit all over the place, doesn’t help that there fans are quite deluded. They seem to think Swindon are a bigger club then they are because they’d a season in the top flight 30 years ago.

    Swindon have been a bit of a basket case club over the last 30 years. They’re about between the Second and Third Tiers in England normally if they were Stable, but they’re not.

    No different to most English lower division clubs to be honest, they’re one big bill away from a crisis.

    The premiership has really affected the mindset on English fans imo. From reading the Swindon group over the years, they’re biggest issue every year was the lack of investment despite the fact the club hadn’t a lot to **** in. I recall at one point Swindon were losing 28k a week or month (can’t remember exactly which one) but they’re fans were still bemoaning at the lack of big money signings.

    There’s a lot of clubs in the football league are only a big bill away from becoming the next Bury.

    Can’t really say our troubles are over yet because we’ve a we’re poor and inexperienced squad and are rooted to the bottom of the table. But it gives us the chance to rebuild and more then anything it gives us hope. There’s a lot of positivity around for the first time in many months. It already appears and feels as though the new manager has done more in the last three weeks then the previous crowd did in six months. The new manager appointed the manager more or less too, I feel that’s a big indictator we’ll see a lot of movement over the next six weeks on the players front especially with how the managers been talking.

    By all accounts the previous management done very little work on the training ground. So Marc has had it tough in that regard, he’s been putting the players through double sessions getting the players fit and he’s been putting focus on tactical training - apparently next to no tactical training was done under Newell/Sheedy. He has identified weakest in the squad, pin pointed areas he needs to strengthen. Highlighted publicly how many players needed in the window. The best thing for me is, he seems open, honest and transparent. He’s brought in a level of positivity again, which has created a little buzz. It’s got people a bit excited again. As opposed to the doom and gloom atmosphere for the past 12 months. There’s even smaller things such as going down to the academy for training with the kids.

    Random but I read somewhere that he took over as temporary coach of first team when Jim Magilton was suspended as manager which led to him leaving QPR.
