And for balance plenty of Scunts have gloated about our decline on here so it's our time and long may it continue.

It’s entirely possible to observe the increasingly dire circumstances Scunthorpe United finds itself in whilst acknowledging our own flaws as a football club. There’s no disputing that we’ve declined since the end of the millennium, our last game in which was a narrow, last minute 2-1 defeat away at Man City to give you a sense of perspective.

But there are some stark differences. The catalyst for our decline was the failure of ITV digital, followed by years of underinvestment and an ineffective utilisation of what resources we have. We find ourselves roughly where we were sixteen years ago off the back of an approximate zero net spend, which is somewhat unsurprising when you consider the willingness of many other clubs to accrue debt in their pursuit of on-field success.

Which brings me onto Scunny. In the last decade alone they have fallen from the Championship to the foot of league two whilst accumulating debts well in excess of £10m on gates well below ours.

This is fundamentally unsustainable for a club of Scunthorpe’s size and revenue generating capability (particularly at this time), and unless the ownership of the club intends underwrite those huge debts they face a very real existential threat in the very near future, something that relegation to the national league would only accelerate.

None of this means that Town are a case study in how to run a football club - we all know we’re not. If you want a good example of frugal success, go and see Wycombe or Accrington. Or for a case study in how to invest in an unfashionable, lower league club then go and pay Bournemouth or Brentford a visit.

But as to how to drive a football club into the ground? You could learn a lot from Peter Swan.

First thing its not a 'supposed decline' it is a fully blown decline. Scunthorpe are in great danger of getting relegated, we have been there so know the signs.

As for Town being in decline for the last 17 years thats true.
There has been one constant presents in the decline but I don't think im allowed to say who that is.


In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

He could have been referring to Mighty Mariner.
