With news breaking of who the preferred bidders are I turned to our colleagues at Vital Swindon Town to find out just how well suited Jeremy Wray could be at running a football club.
Firstly, I was told that Swindon Town would love to have him back.
" Jeremy Wray is a proper decent chairman. Great with the fans and very enthusiastic. Would love to have him back at Swindon. He is open with fans and more than happy to discuss ideas."
Reports had unfavourably revealed that Wray was told to leave Swindon; well this has been cleared up as well.
"Wray was an extremely popular chairman amongst the Swindon Town fan base and fans were very angry when he was told to leave the club by the clubs owners. This was apparently due to overspending."
There have also been mentions of Paolo Di Canio, well I bring the good with the bad, and here is what I was told.
" He is a West Ham fan and was very very pro Paolo Di Canio."
But most importantly, what can Jeremy Wray potentially add to the interests of Birmingham City.
" I was very surprised to see him linked with Birmingham but if Wray does join the club trust be you are in very very good and capable hands. He also has great contacts including Adidas Samsung, FourFourTwo and FIFA video game brand which could appear on your shirts. Would love him back at Swindon but it won't happen sadly. "
So there you have it, a firsthand account of Jeremy Wray from our friend over at Vital Swindon. A massive thank you to Gary Stanley who not only supplied the information, but was incredibly efficient with it.
