John joining us is a totally separate matter from Dr Koukash's reported plans for Swinton town centre. As we've tried to emphasise on a number of occasions, we can't just sit on our backsides gambling the club's existence on a situation beyond our control. Quite the opposite in fact, and we must try and build the club regardless of the Koukash plan (hence the great news of John joining us). Meanwhile although we've had friendly ongoing dialogue with the Koukash camp, the fact remains that the club has never directly received any intimation of a take-over or investment (either with or without a new ground). Naturally we desperately hope Dr Koukash achieves his town centre ambitions & that, if successful, they include a stadium for the Lions. At that point no doubt we will enter negotiations with Dr Koukash and do whatever is in the best long term interests of the club. But if Koukash's plans do not materialise then naturally we keep the club going & try to grow the business, until such a time that a new stadium is (hopefully) possible. There is no secret plan or smokescreen here, all the facts (at least as far as Swinton Lions are concerned) are already in the public domain, and as at today's date we remain open-minded with regard to the proposed Koukash stadium.
