First published in Sport

This live event has finished

Summary

  • REPORTING BY SAM MORSHEAD & ANDY WARREN
  • FULL-TIME: Swindon Town 2 (Martin 50, Williams 53) Shrewsbury 0
  • Martin and Williams win it for Town
  • Foderingham saves a late penalty
  • Game only on thanks to work of 200 volunteers, who cleared 30 tonnes of snow from County Ground pitch overnight

5:53pm

That's that from us at theCoutny Ground. Another good day then for Swindon, who move to third place in the League One table with the most comfortable of 2-0 victories over Shrewsbury.

Chris Martin netted from the penalty spot and Andy Williams struck the second, before Wes Foderingham saved Matt Richards' spot-kick to ensure he kept his 14th clean sheet of the campaign.

Swindon have now won four in a row at home, but it's a run of four games in a row away from home in the coming weeks which could define their season.

For now, the shoveling efforts of all those volunteers last night paid dividends and any prospective new owner should be looking at this business venture a little more confidently.

Until next time, goodbye.

5:53pm

Di Canio also revealed a half-time threat saw his players vastly improve after the break.

 

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald: Swindon Town boss Paolo Di Canio

CALLING FOR MORE: PDC

“I told them that if we lost this game that the appointment is tomorrow morning is 5am at Liddington and that was enough," he said.

“We would start to run, and they had to win as they had in the past and go out and give their best.

“We were on top and we should stay 2-0 up, but we missed nasty behaviour in front of goal and we stayed 0-0.

“We saw straight away after two minutes we had a different team.

“We were given the chance to play on a beautiful surface, and we have to thank Marcus the groundsman because before it was covered it was rolled flat."

5:52pm

The Italian was also pleased to be able to reward the loyal fans who helped clear the pitch last night.

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald:

THE TOWN FANS AND PDC (circled) HELP CLEAR THE PITCH

“When we decided to order pizza we had 60 people and then over two hundred, and it was gone in a minute," he said.

“It was emotional to see kids with their dads around to help, and what they have done I am thankful.

“It was incredible because the common feeling was because they wanted to come and watch the game, and the best they can have is see their team win and wanted to send back a message to them to say thanks.

“The fact we won is a present to them.”

5:47pm

Manager Paolo Di Canio has reflected on a strange week in his post match press conference, in which they struggled to train outside due to the weather.

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald: ON THE ROAD AGAIN: Paolo Di Canio celebrates a point at Bournemouth

PAOLO DI CANIO

“It was a strange week and I am very pleased the player gave their best because it wasn’t easy.

“We trained indoor all week and on Friday morning we had a stretch session and some quick feet because we couldn’t get to Cirencester.

“It was crucial to focus the attentions, and maybe it is normal for other teams not to train on Friday in bad weather.

“The first half was very bad, but we have better players, shape and system.

“I told them the game would go on, and we won and I want to thank my players and all the volunteers last night who made an amazing job and the staff here.

“What they did last night is the most important thing.”

Five minutes: Town have the first real attack of the game as Gary Roberts and Alan McCormack exchange a few passes, but the move breaks down as Danny Hollands looks to play it into the box.

3:06pm

Not much in the way of quality so far though, with the ball spending a lot of time in the air or out of play.

The ball is rolling really nicely on the County Ground pitch

We are underway

3:01pm

Town to attack an empty and white Stratton Bank in the first half

Here come the teams!

2:56pm

I have to say I am a little upset about the probable absence of the orange ball, which is always such a treat to see.

2:55pm

Not looking like the biggest crowd the County Ground has ever seen, which is understandable, but the club deserves every bit of praise it is getting for the job they have done to get this game on.

2:51pm

IN THE AWAY DUGOUT – Graham Turner

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald: Graham Turner: Yeovil bid.
There aren’t many more experienced managers in the Football League than Graham Turner.
The man from the Wirral enjoyed a notable if not spectacular playing career, making more than 200 appearances for Chester before finishing his career with more than 300 games for the Shrews.
In 1978 he became player-manager, and that year they secured the Third Division Championship. The next decade saw the Shropshire side solely in the Second Division, but Turner left after ending his playing career in 1984 to take charge of Aston Villa.
His time at Villa Park was not successful, and he left after only two years with the club heading for relegation from the First Division.
Turner then dropped into the Fourth Division with Wolves, and after missing out in the play-offs in his first season he led the West Midlanders to two successive promotions before leaving in 1994.
The next year he moved to Hereford, but suffered relegation to the Conference in 1997. The Bulls suffered major financial problems during his spell as boss, but they managed to return to the league in 2006 after beating Halifax in the Conference Play-off Final.
In 2007/08 Hereford earned promotion to the third tier for the first time in 30 years, but they were relegated in their first season.
Turner resigned as manager but stayed on at the club as chairman, but after selling his shares he returned to Shrewsbury in 2010.
After a losing in the League Two play-offs in his first season, Turner led the club to second in the league last season as they went up.....behind some team who play in red.

2:43pm

DANGERMEN - A look at the men Town will have to stop this afternoon

Marvin Morgan

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald:
The Shrewsbury striker has scored goals wherever he has been, be it in non-league football or in the professional game. Morgan is capable of popping up on either flank or through the middle, and offers a physical threat as well as being good on the ball.

Paul Parry

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald:
The winger is capable of popping up on either flank, and has impressed all the way up to Championship level. Parry can hug the touchline or come inside to attack the penalty area, and both full-backs will need to be on their toes. He may be on the bench today, but if the visitors are still in the game late on he could prove vital.

Matt Richards

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald:
The Shrewsbury captain can literally play anywhere on the field, having started his career as a left-back at Ipswich. He operated in the centre of midfield for Shrews last season, but now finds himself on the wing. Richards is good on the ball and moves from box to box, and is also good from set pieces.

Hello armchair fans.

Seriously nothing was going to stop me. The lads and lasses that cleared the snow did us proud.

Long walk, a lift, and 3 train journeys .... So what was your journey like ?

Proud to follow the Town.

Great effort!

2:40pm

LAST TIME OUT

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald:

AT THE DOUBLE: Alan Connell

In the corresponding fixture last season Town went top of League Two for the first time since the opening day as two goals from striker Alan Connell saw them come back from a goal down to win 2-1.

The rest was history for Town as they went on to secure the League Two title, but the scrappy win over the Shrews proved the platform for a magnificent end to the season.

The Advertiser understands that one of the parties originally involved in discussions regarding the possible purchase of Andrew Black's shares in Swindon Town has now withdrawn that interest.

There are several parties that remain interested in the club.

Manager Paolo Di Canio has a fair amount of ammunition at his disposal if he wants to throw snowballs to motivate his players!

Once the snow had been cleared and the covers removed, groundsman Marcus Cassidy set about marking out the lines this morning.

2:23pm

THE WEEK THAT WAS

I spoke to owner Andrew Black on Thursday about the situation he finds himself in at Swindon Town.

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald: Andrew Black

ANDREW BLACK

He was honest and open in his appraisal of the situation. Having never had a keen interest in football, and having joined the original consortium which took over the club in 2008 as a favour, Mr Black has gone on to become something of a reluctant owner.

He admits that the business of running the club is tiring him mentally, and that he has come to the conclusion in his mind that now is the right time to leave. Having failed in an effort to secure a co-investor in the summer, he does not want to leave behind a "car crash".

To that extent, administration would be the last thing he wants for the club. Indeed the word itself has so many negative inferences, especially around Swindon, that Black wants to avoid it as much as possible.

2:18pm

THE COUNTY GROUND TRANSFORMED

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald:

Mr Di Canio also treated all of the volunteers to pizza from Fratellos. An amazing gesture.

THE WEEK THAT WAS

After the furore over a piece of plastic, harder news came later in the week when it was formally recognised by the board that owner Andrew Black is looking to sell a large chunk of his 98 per cent shareholding in the board.

The word administration took many by surprise, although it has been discussed by the powers that be in private as a last resort should a buyer not be found in a relatively short timeframe.

BREAKING TEAM NEWS

SWINDON TOWN v Shrewsbury Town: Foderingham; Thompson N, Flint, Ward, McCormack; Ritchie, Ferry, Hollands, Roberts; Martin, Williams

Substitutes: Bedwell, McEveley, Navarro, Collins, Miller, De Vita, Rooney A

That's three changes for Town, with James Collins, Tommy Miller and Aden Flint making way for Chris Martin, Simon Ferry and Aden Flint.

A nice surprise to see Jay McEveley amongst the subs. We were told by Di Canio on Thursday that this weekend would be too soon for his return from a knee operation.

1:58pm

THE WEEK THAT WAS

It all started with a monsoon and a sheet of Perspex.

Town managed to sneak a 1-1 draw at Bournemouth last week in horrendous conditions - the match really should not have been allowed to finish - but attention on Twitter soon shifted to a smashed pane in the visitors' dugout.

Cherries fans were quick to blame Paolo Di Canio, with one even suggesting the police should be called, however te Adver extablished that it was Domenico Doardo who accidentally broke the plastic. The clubs have sorted it out since.

Our picture even made it onto Sky Sports this morning, with Soccer AM taking an interest. Relive it all here.

1:45pm

THE COUNTY GROUND TRANSFORMED

The game today is only going ahead thanks to a Herculean effort from close to 200 Town fans and staff, including manager Paolo Di Canio, who worked through the night to make sure the pitch is playable.

Groundsman Marcus Cassidy headed up the effort, which saw close to 30 tonnes of snow removed from the pitch, with most of it in mounds around the advertising boards.

Di Canio bought pizza for all the volunteers, with work going on until close to midnight which has transformed the County Ground into an oasis.

1:30pm

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the Advertiser’s live coverage of Swindon Town’s clash with Shrewsbury.

To be honest, we weren’t expecting to be at the County Ground this afternoon, given the heavy snowfall and treacherous conditions of the past 36 hours.

However, thanks to an intrepid bunch of volunteers, groundstaff, Robins office staff, coaches and even manager Paolo Di Canio, we have a game.

Around 200 community-spirited individuals worked until almost midnight last night to clear snow off the covers at the County Ground, led by head groundsman Marcus Cassidy, and their incredible efforts have ensured we have a match to watch this afternoon.

We’ll be recounting the events of yesterday during the next 90 minutes ahead of kick-off, before the Robins look to make it four consecutive home wins against Shrewsbury.

Stick will us for all the best build-up, followed by match updates and reaction. If you’re at home in front of the fire, stick on the kettle and settle down for another exciting afternoon in Town’s season.

Enjoy!

Donny didn't look too special when we drew here and were lucky to get a point with a Danny Hollands own goal. They could suffer after the departure of Saunders, but would say they are probably the team to catch.

Tranmere have done well but without Cassidy they could struggle to maintain the form they have shown so far, Brentford are involved in extra cup games and fixture congestion could be their downfall, Sheff Utd another poor team when we played them at the CG, with their history they should have been walking this league, but seem to be suffering from Danny Wilson second season syndromn

IMO, Two from present top 5 for the automatic places. If we are going to do it we need to get results when we travel to their places, a return of 12 points from 12 would go along way to ensure we are one of the two to go up automatically.

Tranmere have done well but without Cassidy they could struggle to maintain the form they have shown so far, Brentford are involved in extra cup games and fixture congestion could be their downfall, Sheff Utd another poor team when we played them at the CG, with their history they should have been walking this league, but seem to be suffering from Danny Wilson second season syndromn

IMO, Two from present top 5 for the automatic places. If we are going to do it we need to get results when we travel to their places, a return of 12 points from 12 would go along way to ensure we are one of the two to go up automatically.
Yep agree - I'm convinced we have a great chance of making Top 2 if not winning it....especially due to all the reasons mentioned.
...
Wilson is just too reserved for the options he's got at Sheff Utd and as you say, it's second season syndrome!
...
Winning today and the next 4 would, IMHO, put us in at firm 2nd favourites for the title at least.

Can't wait for today and really hoping we take the game by the scruff of the neck from the start.

This win gives me a warmer glow than the previous big home wins. After another week of 'Town' turmoil it's magnificent to see how the fans, the snow clearers, the players and, most of all, the manager have responded. Brilliant!!
It's absolutely vital now that everyone sticks together and stays positive until an investor(s) is secured. We need responsible reporting from the Adver because, Sam, phrases like 'bidding war' do not help. Clearly we cannot expect anything helpful or factual from the BBC and Sky (Jeff Stelling was talking about our '£13m debt' and making it sound as though we owed money to every Tom, Dick and Harry). As true fans, let's avoid reacting to what we read in the press until we have the real facts. I don't think Andrew Black will let us down and he certainly doesn't want to lose all his money. Just hope we are successful in securing new money and in keeping the squad together. Paulo is proving to be fantastically loyal and he's gone way up in my estimation during the last four weeks.

Looking good on the investment front - Paolo saying he was more happy today than he was yesterday. Very encouraging.

And finally a MASSIVE MASSIVE thanks to the Junior Red ladies who sorted me out a pair of dry socks for my littl'un who had decided on the way to the ground to kick snow but got wet feet. Saved me an early exit and was a superb gesture. Thanks!

Brilliant gate considering the weather and boy was that cold on the way home. Marvelous fans last night and true heroes to help get the game on. Good performance today that got better as the game went on and we were far better second half so Paolo's team talk and 5.00 am threat worked a treat. Missed Devera but Flint although rusty did very well and cleared his lines which is all we can ask. Magnificent penalty save by Fods and this was critical at a time when the game was still not over. Great 3 points and crucial with so many games off. Lets do another number on Tranmere next week to really make the division sit up and take notice. Great to see Martin break his duck at last. Ferry magnificent again and deserved MOM.

Cracking performance. Easy win that could have been even easier with the rub of the green in their box. McCormack's tendency to lose composure - and not just the pen - was the only blot on the copy book. Fodders sharp and alert, even though he should have paid to get in. Thompson as hard as nails. Flint and Ward rocks. Ferry pulled all the strings in midfield. Williams terrorised them at the back. There seems to be an unstoppable momentum at the moment, that is if the off-field uncertainty doesn't make it hit the buffers.

The next 4 games will decide our season, if we can take 9 or 10 points we will win the league.

Now that's what you call a team effort.
Fans, backroom staff, and the man himself out clearing the pitch till midnight, then they team turns in another polished performance. OK they never got into top gear, but still terrorised a stubborn Shrews side in the second half.

With slightly better finishing it could easily have been our favourite score again. Not forgetting a cracking penalty save from Fodders, which must have been doubly difficult since it was the only shot he had to save on a freezing afternoon.

Some of the teams around us are beginning to slip up a bit, so if we can keep grinding out results like last week at Bournmouth, then turning on the style at home we should have as good a chance of anyone of automatic promotion.

Thank you to all the volunteers that helped clear the pitch and get the game on. Massive respect and if a poster was there say so because you deserve a massive thank you.

Brilliant result and superb effort from every single player on the pitch. MOM was again so difficult, isn't that nice to say, but have to agree with the sponsors, wee Simon was sick on the pitch but went on to give 110%.

The taxi for Martin comment above is poor, really pleased to see him score our first penalty of the season AND get his first goal. His commitment to the team is second to none and playing as a striker is more than scoring goals in a Paolo team (ask Flint, Ward and Co).

another important win, could've been 4 or 5 again. Willo was quality if only he could finish he would be top scorer easily but then he'd prob be playing at least championship level, he had them on toast several times. Glad to see Martin get off the mark he definately has the quality, and Collins looked sharp when on as well. Ritchie had a great game, very unlucky not to score and Roberts very threatening today, shame he wasted opportunity at end but also another great save from a really good effort before that. Ferry was class as ever, Miller did a decent job but some slack passes as well, i rate him as decent but he is not in same league as ferry and can't believe there are supporters who think he's better?? a minority i know but still staggers me. Still prob a Miller/ferry partnership for a while now as injury looked bad to Danny Hollands. Flint came in and did well, even distributed ball well quite a few times, Nathan outstanding again, a quality player in the making there. Wardy running backline as ever. Macca will be remembered for silly moment but plenty of his exciting surges as well and some good link up with Robbo. Great pen save Wes. A good all round performance and vital win. COYR

Sorry don't think my taxi comment is poor just my opinion yes he holds the ball up well yes he works hard but he won't score enough goals. If he was providing all the assists I'd go with him playing. I'd have had Collins on for the second half and goodness knows I've been critical of him in the past.
Changing tack, for me Roberts probably gas his best game in a Town shirt.

Have loved Willo from the start and am so glad that Paolo is giving him a real good chance. The reason he's giving him a real good chance is because he has incredible ball control, skill, pace, twists and turns and will be the next legend at our club. Many knocked him, but they will be silent when he really does get going and the patient among us will sit back and admire this great player that has joined our beloved club.Wiiiiiiiiiiiiii

Jockster,

This sentence from your post could be telling:

"I'd have had Collins on for the second half and goodness knows I've been critical of him in the past."

This has been said about a number of Town players this season by many different posters.

Commitment to the team is what I like and I believe I am now seeing that in every Town player. Look at the player who forced James into the error last week and ultimately set up the equaliser.

Well, well, what a decent day. Cg in fine fettle thanks to the Red Army Volunteers, well done to one and all.

thought we started slowly but finished well. Could have had 4 but I'm happy with 2-0. The old Macca red mist dropping again, why, it seemed he played himself into trouble. Top marks though to Sir Wes on a first class save.
Thought Motm was a close call between several players, and Thompson is now so combative he is magic.
Williams input in attack today was tremendous and Roberts is growing into his role now game by game a better player. A few one-two's didn't come off for a few today, but come on, it was cold. Up to third which is good, hopefully now we will go on a similar run now to last season.
Though our man was cool and quiet by his standards post match interview, very cool and calm.

Oxon I accept your viewpoint which is as far as I can tell re Martin - he works hard he holds forge ball up well he's combative so using that analogy you'd keep him until the end if the season even if he onlyvscordctwo goals and cost us a play-off spot at least? Think about it if he'd been that good Norwich wouldn't have loaned him out would they? To me he gets into good positions then doesn't seem to know what to do inevitably losing possession - today he tried to chest a ball to Ritchie? I think ?that had no hope of reaching its target too many paces away. Sorry but not the answer for me up front.

I think ?that had no hope of reaching its target too many paces away. Sorry but not the answer for me up front. The Jockster

Hope you have put a bet on Williams to finish top scorer. I got him at 66/1 ew paying first 4 places.
Fair play, liked his work rate just thought as a scorer he didn't look good enough to me.but now he looks as if will score every time he gets the ball.
Must praise Paolo because he has always seen something in him.its not many times he gets it wrong is it?
I'm happy with my £150 @11/1

Can't wait for Storey to regain full fitness to get some consideration as well. Surely its not going to be too long now. Evidently Rooney is progressing quite well and could be in for a shout before long as well.

Loads of very good positive post today. firstly we all owe a big thanks to Paolo, the ground staff and volunteers for making it possible, a big, big thanks to all involved.

Pitch was imaculate and I believe even Mr Turner sung the praises.

I think 7,741 was a good turn out given the conditions and congrats to the 251 that travelled down from Shropshire to support their team.

With regards to the game, good performances overall, although we did look off the pace in the first half at times. No complaints of the defence other than the endless back passes, but if they don't conceed goals what can I say, another clean sheet is fantastic and well done Wes for the penalty save.

Midfield I think Holland didn't look to me he was 100% fit, maybe a touch of flu or even the trots (he came on late for start of game), Miller coming on made the difference with support to Simon, probably the best I've seen him play for us, great to have such a choice for midfield when a good player goes off and another come on and tries so hard. Roberts and Ritchie both did well, thought De Vita might come on when Ritchie got another yellow, how many is that now?

Up front thought Chris Martin had some great touches, despite what others say I think he is a good target man and Williams continues to frustrate, with the chances he gets he should already be leading the golden boot for this league, he has pace, but with one foot and no brain, he is never ever going to become a legend here. He has a lot more to do to improve, hopefully Paolo will continue to try and make him a more clinical finisher than he is now, it's not rocket science is it to hit a ball between two post?

Very happy with the win, could/should have been five. Brentford dropped 3 points, the Blades two, Doncaster are the ones to catch, We will be up the Wirral next week with my son , meeting up with 3 locals who will be sitting in with us in the cow shed, a mate I spoke with today who was there for for the play-off game in '93 told me how their fan walked down the pitch and applauded our fans after the game. Top drawer in my opinion of fans that know their football.

Brilliant result and superb effort from every single player on the pitch. MOM was again so difficult, isn't that nice to say, but have to agree with the sponsors, wee Simon was sick on the pitch but went on to give 110%.

The taxi for Martin comment above is poor, really pleased to see him score our first penalty of the season AND get his first goal. His commitment to the team is second to none and playing as a striker is more than scoring goals in a Paolo team (ask Flint, Ward and Co).

COYMR
Sorry don't think my taxi comment is poor just my opinion yes he holds the ball up well yes he works hard but he won't score enough goals. If he was providing all the assists I'd go with him playing. I'd have had Collins on for the second half and goodness knows I've been critical of him in the past.
Changing tack, for me Roberts probably gas his best game in a Town shirt.
Malky,

I understand what you have said in your post above and to be quite honest, I think you are right.

Martin does not score too many goals, quite a serious problem for a striker!!

And Collins had his fantastic moment of glory with 4 second half goals, but cannot usually score to save his life. Bouremouth and today and numerous other times??

We do have a player on our books who CAN score goals and has done for us, his name is Paul Benson, but he seems to be making the tea at the moment!!

Joey and Jock, my impression of Martin is that he's still lacking a bit of match sharpness and confidence. I still think there's a lot more to come from him. As for Benson, I'm a fan of his too but our aggregate of 17-1 in the last five games suggests we're doing pretty well without him. With that sort of record and every player making a huge contribution, I'm not going to quibble about where the goals are coming from, whether they're from strikers, midfielders, defenders or the referee's arse.

Storey's career might not go very much further.

Very young players with knee problems are like 3 legged horses, I will refrain from Tesco jokes.

But we sure as anything should not assume Storey will be the answer to all our problems, with his knee problems.

With regards to our strikers, Collins is a young lad and is top scorer with 13 goals yet some are knocking him here?? Willo has loads of ability, how many could do what he did against carlisle?? yes he misses far too many chances, which frustrates me as much as anyone but many of these chances he fashions out for himself and another striker wouldn't even get that chance. Martin's general play is superb and really links ups play well and IMO is above L1 level. I agree the confidence in front of goal has been lacking but i hope getting off the mark will be the catalyst. Also like Benson, think he was great last year and can still do a job at this level, if Martin returns i would hope he is next in line as not a fan of rooney at all from what i've seen. And young Miles is also another decent option, not sure we should be putting too much pressure on him yet though. COYR

I still can't believe some think we would be top 2 with Benson (and probably Connell) up top!

Den lets not forget it is 22-2 in our last 7 - goals are not an issue - especially as Collins has 5 of them and Williams 4 so practically half!
We have moved on from Benno. PDC will not use any squad players that are not in the normal match day squad of late ( unless forced by injury) as he wants to keep the team ethic that appears to have been installed.

BTW Macca was awful today and Jay will be back in next week

Yes I said to my mate (yes I do have one). Look at Paolo after he called flint over to give him advise on how to combat the threat from the sub before he walked on the pitch. Pure genius also perhaps it's me flint don't look so intimidating to the refs with his hair shorter?.

No way Mate have to disagree.
Martin is excellent up front and the reason why Williams is getting more direct running with his pace, due to the fact that he can hold the ball and find a pass.
He is a clever player. Watch how many free kicks he plays for as well.
Really hope we keep him. The goals will come.

Look at the facts we are not struggling scoring goals so why worry ?
We are doing well defending them as well.

What did you think of the the lady lineswoman on the Arlells side I thought she got a few decisions wrong but nothing too controversial, in fact the ref over ruled her on a couple of occassions.

Isn't it strange how we all see such different things in players - I guess that is what's called individuality and opinion which is, IMHO, the whole point of life for a discussion over a good pint.

For what it is worth:
Fodderingham: Not a lot to do today but what he does he does increasingly well. ...Roberts said Macka only gave away the penalty to wake him up and make him earn a wage! :-)
.
Thompson: Just looks better and better, so assured on a 1-on-1 situe but never looks like panicking...getting better going forwards in link play with Ritchie but still hesitating.
.
McCormack: Ignoring the silly penalty I thought it was one of his poorer performances for Town today...when he made the runs forward he struggled to find his man with a pass and always on the back foot when they broke.....still think he should be in midfield with Ferry when McEverley comes back - who looked pretty sharp when he came on.
.
Flint: Did the job well, nervous start but you do see the difference in assurity on the ball and going forwards with Devera - definitely my 2nd choice now.
.
Ward: Simply a rock!...I disagreed with someone about making him Captain at the moment but he should be next season.
.
Ferry: Simply brilliant stuff again. He harries he chases provides quick link up play and does so much off the ball - He is the engine room of the team and we look far poorer without him.
.
Hollands: Has been playing really well and is the one I would keep if we can only keep one of our two loans....hope his injury is not too bad but again if McEverley is back then put Macka back in his natural position alongside Ferry.
.
Roberts: Had a great game today but got a bit selfish at the end...so unlucky not to have scored a couple today - We need both him and de Vera at their best as it is a energy sapping position.
.
Ritchie: Good game but not at his best today...worryingly getting booked far more often for silly things and arguing too much when only a yellow. Amazing energy and got better as the match went on....possibly more space as they tired.
.
Williams: Brilliantly quick feet and some amazing turns at pace...just getting better and better....my e/w money at 70/1 for top scorer is looking better every game....far more to come in the way of goals I think.
.
Martin: Bit of an unsung hero at times. Works hard pulling the defence all over the place and links up well with midfield plus gives Williams that yard of space with some great runs...just needs a bit of confidence in front of goal to get going....as mentioned though I'd keep Hollands over Martin.
.
McEverley: Covered above. I'm a big fan of him but wish he'd nail his crosses a bit more...great left back.
.
Miller: Thought he had a solid game when forced on and just needs some game time...good combative midfielder and one who can hit a ball if needed.
.
Collins: He's getting better as time goes on and think he'll click very soon - if he only scores a hat-trick every 10 games but the team score 2 a game with him on the pitch then....I'll be happy! Was unlucky not to get the pass from Roberts late on yesterday as again he makes some good runs....at 21 he has time to learn from the master and seems to be doing so.
====.
Their MotM......has to be their goalie again....some great saves in tandem with the woodwork!...can we not make our goals 2" wider and 1" taller?...our +30 would be nearer to +40 by now.

Southside

De Vita was on the bench and was warming up, but when macca had the red mist decend with 7 minutes to play, he was yanked off and McEverley got a run out. Paolo had already used Miller to replace the injured Holland (he had an excellent game when he came on) and Collins coming on for Martin was very predictable. So De Vita did not got his chance to replace Ritchie or Roberts on this occassion who both had good games by the way.

To get in top 2 you need to average 2 points per game. We are on 1.8 so need to pick up 43 more points from 19 games which is 2.2 points per game.

We would need 12 wins = 36 and 7 draws with no defeats 

Allowing for 2 defeats we would need to Win 13 for 39 and draw 4 

The other factor to take into account is by playing the top teams if we beat them we move further away, so it's all in our hands.

Wiz,

Storey's career might not go very much further.

Very young players with knee problems are like 3 legged horses, I will refrain from Tesco jokes.

But we sure as anything should not assume Storey will be the answer to all our problems, with his knee problems.
I think we both can agree it would be a cruel twist of fate for young Miles if his career were cut short after showing good promise. I don't think he is the one player answer either, I was hinting that with more options available it would increase the competition for a starting place in the team and get more focus on finishing skills, which we need. Glad we are both in agreement over Benson. Perhaps now he has had games with Pompey his sharpness may be better than it was earlier in the season here.

Can anyone say what the yellow card count is now for Ritchie and macca. Macca can and will be rested as we have ample cover. but IMO we can't afford to lose Ritchie, especially as we still have to visit every team in the top 7.

Flint should be OK after his two reds he has a clean sheet and with his new haircut, the refs won't recognise him anyway.

Interested in how others view this.
It's really hard to judge as you would bet on it being a 3 horse race between Doncaster, Tranmere and us so 90pts should be the target but with Brentford, MK Dons and Bournemouth taking points off others it could be that 4 teams are all on the mid 80pts with 3 games to go.
....
From now until the end of February is a crucial period of time to decide who is in for what:
...
We play:
Tranmere (a) I fancy 3pts there; Crawley (a) will take a point
and MK Dons (a) the toughest fixture plus we don't do too well there.
.
All other 5 are against lower league teams which with the way we're playing I believe we can win 4 of those.
---
Tranmere:
.
They've got us at home (we're a real jinx team for them);
Notts Co at home (at a push it's a top half game)
.....then they have 4 other winnable games against lower league teams -
Strangely enough they also visit L.Orient and Colchester in their next 5 games...after which we'll both be level on games played (weather permitting) and I believe could be level on points with 11 games to go.....next week is huge for both teams!!
---
Doncaster: Who seem to have made a sensible appointment have no game next Sat (would have been MK Dons away) so we'll have played 1 more than them by next Wednesday..and:
.
MK Dons (h); Crawley (a) and Yeovil (h).....plus 3 other lower league teams.
...could see them drawing 2 at worst so at the end of Feb:
Doncaster: Pld 34 - 72pts
Tranmere: Pld 35 - 71pts
Swindon: Pld 35 - 68pts (expecting 1 draw and 1 loss in 8)
===.
I'm not ignoring Brentfor and Sheff Utd but do think their March fixtures will find them out.
....
Doncatesr definitely the team to beat but we can catch Tranmere

just looking at the Fixtures guys. 8 Home 11 away , we have to play teams currently in 1 2 4 5 6 7 9 and 11th place.
So how many points do you think we need from that lot ,3 wins 5 draws? If we win 6 at home that would give us 80 plus points.
Interested in how others view this.
To get in top 2 you need to average 2 points per game. We are on 1.8 so need to pick up 43 more points from 19 games which is 2.2 points per game.

We would need 12 wins = 36 and 7 draws with no defeats 

Allowing for 2 defeats we would need to Win 13 for 39 and draw 4 

The other factor to take into account is by playing the top teams if we beat them we move further away, so it's all in our hands.
Good anaysis Okus and yes playing all the top teams are 6 pointers and our destiny is in our own hands.

From those 12 or 13 wins you mentioned we need, one would like to think we can win or draw the 8 home games, so we will still need to pick up 4 or 5 more wins away from home. A big ask, but if we can hold on to our loanees everything is possible, just hope key players like Wes and Nathan can stay injury free because we don't have adequate cover if we were to lose one or both of them.

Southside

De Vita was on the bench and was warming up, but when macca had the red mist decend with 7 minutes to play, he was yanked off and McEverley got a run out. Paolo had already used Miller to replace the injured Holland (he had an excellent game when he came on) and Collins coming on for Martin was very predictable. So De Vita did not got his chance to replace Ritchie or Roberts on this occassion who both had good games by the way.
? Devera, not De Vita. Don't know if he was on the bench or not, but he's been incredible lately, unless he's just resting him.

Agree that Ritchie and Roberts both had good games. Think Roberts will come good when he gets more cofidence.

sorry mate, read your post wrong, yes Devera picked up a knock in training, nothing too serious I believe but whether he or Flint will start next week will be interesting.

Loads of very good positive post today. firstly we all owe a big thanks to Paolo, the ground staff and volunteers for making it possible, a big, big thanks to all involved.

Pitch was imaculate and I believe even Mr Turner sung the praises.

I think 7,741 was a good turn out given the conditions and congrats to the 251 that travelled down from Shropshire to support their team.

With regards to the game, good performances overall, although we did look off the pace in the first half at times. No complaints of the defence other than the endless back passes, but if they don't conceed goals what can I say, another clean sheet is fantastic and well done Wes for the penalty save.

Midfield I think Holland didn't look to me he was 100% fit, maybe a touch of flu or even the trots (he came on late for start of game), Miller coming on made the difference with support to Simon, probably the best I've seen him play for us, great to have such a choice for midfield when a good player goes off and another come on and tries so hard. Roberts and Ritchie both did well, thought De Vita might come on when Ritchie got another yellow, how many is that now?

Up front thought Chris Martin had some great touches, despite what others say I think he is a good target man and Williams continues to frustrate, with the chances he gets he should already be leading the golden boot for this league, he has pace, but with one foot and no brain, he is never ever going to become a legend here. He has a lot more to do to improve, hopefully Paolo will continue to try and make him a more clinical finisher than he is now, it's not rocket science is it to hit a ball between two post?

Very happy with the win, could/should have been five. Brentford dropped 3 points, the Blades two, Doncaster are the ones to catch, We will be up the Wirral next week with my son , meeting up with 3 locals who will be sitting in with us in the cow shed, a mate I spoke with today who was there for for the play-off game in '93 told me how their fan walked down the pitch and applauded our fans after the game. Top drawer in my opinion of fans that know their football.

COYR's
A bit frightening to think that game away at Tranmere in the play offs was 20 years ago!!

I remember it so well tho, the incredible atmosphere, end to end game, we seem to have had a few of those in the play off semi's over the years!!

Never forget the composure that Maskell showed in soring one of the goals, i watched it again on one of the Swindon sites recently which returned the memories.

Always thought Mitchell was a bit of a donkey but always scored the goals as well!!

If we have done wrong then i guess we will get punished but until that happens and i believe we have done nothing more than a lot of clubs, then most of it is sour grapes and jealousy.
The Media are determined to lead a hate campaign against Di Canio as they want him to fail. just look at the football league show last night they could not of snubbed PDC and Swindon town any more if they tried.
It was pathetic even BBC points west hate us especially that bristol TW.T Geoff Twentyman they are so biased to the bristol clubs its ridiculous even yeovil get more coverage than us.
As i said before its just jealousy because we have a manger with more passion in his little finger than most other mangers put together and they hate us for it. Because both bristol clubs are a embarrassment it twists the local BBC sports journalist up inside.
Steve Claridge is a failed washed up has been and hates us. Even BBC five live refused to take calls from swindon fans trying to praise PDC for his efforts I say F.CK THEM ALL

I don't think that is so much of a problem. Put Williams out as the winger and he plays excellently in this role with superb balls in, and Raffa up front in his place as he is a natural forward anyway.
Roberts can play on either wing and is improving match by match.

I dont think Ritchie has been at his absolute best for the last couple of games or so, so high is his standard, that is not putting him down in any way. Again yesterday his competative spirit got the better of him with his card and his answering back to the ref which is worse this season also does him little favour. Cannot fault his spirit and toil.

We had a laugh over Flints hair cut as well, hardly recognisable from before. LOL.

Say WE ARE GOING UP, WE ARE GOING UP.
Hi Jayden,

Bampton looked good yesterday as did Tadpole Bridge and the road up to Buckland, so thanks for that. Came back usual way almost but via Burford as I gave a lift to a couple of chaps on the way back.

I had issues with Claridge a while back and got put down for it, perhaps a few more are seeing now what I saw then. Sorry to say I rarely watch his show now as its on too late and I'm too busy to watch it on player etc. I think the bloke , ahem, (his favourite saying, ahem), is as you describe. We all see things differently, because we are human, but like Patey for example, I don't like the bloke. I do think that Leroy tries to do it better when he is on, but I think he is easily led by the Maniche guy. Doubt if I could do any better. I think they need somebody who tells the truth and actually does some research on matters properly rather than spout the rubbish about clubs such as ours right now. I'm going to have to watch more of ITV 4 as they seem to putting a lot lore on now, even if they have the dreaded adverts.

The Media are determined to lead a hate campaign against Di Canio as they want him to fail. just look at the football league show last night they could not of snubbed PDC and Swindon town any more if they tried.
It was pathetic even BBC points west hate us especially that bristol TW.T Geoff Twentyman they are so biased to the bristol clubs its ridiculous even yeovil get more coverage than us.
As i said before its just jealousy because we have a manger with more passion in his little finger than most other mangers put together and they hate us for it. Because both bristol clubs are a embarrassment it twists the local BBC sports journalist up inside.
Steve Claridge is a failed washed up has been and hates us. Even BBC five live refused to take calls from swindon fans trying to praise PDC for his efforts I say F.CK THEM ALL

Brizzi City bottom of the champioship. Brizzi city bottom of div 2,
Swindon town 3rd in div 1, say no more, the BBC are so bias, they are a disgrace. With only 4 or 5 games on yesterday I was sure the Football league show would give us some coverage, but the same as was the case last week at Bournemouth, we didn't get a mention, I dare say we will when we get beat though. lol
Be interesting to see how they ignore us when we beat Tranmere away next Saturday....no doubt they'll focus on what is happening off the pitch.

I've stopped getting wound up by the Football League show now and just find it laughable.

Has anyone heard any out come of yesterdays board meeting ? it all seems a bit hush-hush. Would rather hear from Black than Patey, as I feel it would be more positive.

If all our diplomats are like Patey then heaven help us, PR skills of a fence post.

Can anyone say what the yellow card count is now for Ritchie and macca. Macca can and will be rested as we have ample cover. but IMO we can't afford to lose Ritchie, especially as we still have to visit every team in the top 7.

Flint should be OK after his two reds he has a clean sheet and with his new haircut, the refs won't recognise him anyway.
Don't forget they limit is now reset to 10 as from Jan 1st and not 5
Didn't know that Sap, thanks
FYI - McCormack now has 5 yellows and is the only one as all others have 4 or less.....no mentioning the 2 reds for Flint on top of the 4 yellows though! :-)

No doubt they will come into play later in the season but all other top clubs except Tranmere have far more cards so not as much of a concern for us at the moment.

We've done nothing wrong Cookie,Black's got fed up bank-rolling us and is trying to get some of his money back,but if he can't find a buyer?he could put us into admin,then we would lose 10 points!could still make the play-off's,but we don't want it to come to that,so hopefully Black will cut his losses and sell at a rather large loss to his Wonga wad !!!!!!!!!!

Say WE ARE GOING UP, WE ARE GOING UP.
Hi Jayden,

Bampton looked good yesterday as did Tadpole Bridge and the road up to Buckland, so thanks for that. Came back usual way almost but via Burford as I gave a lift to a couple of chaps on the way back.

I had issues with Claridge a while back and got put down for it, perhaps a few more are seeing now what I saw then. Sorry to say I rarely watch his show now as its on too late and I'm too busy to watch it on player etc. I think the bloke , ahem, (his favourite saying, ahem), is as you describe. We all see things differently, because we are human, but like Patey for example, I don't like the bloke. I do think that Leroy tries to do it better when he is on, but I think he is easily led by the Maniche guy. Doubt if I could do any better. I think they need somebody who tells the truth and actually does some research on matters properly rather than spout the rubbish about clubs such as ours right now. I'm going to have to watch more of ITV 4 as they seem to putting a lot lore on now, even if they have the dreaded adverts.
I always find Claridge boring, lifeless and mumbles a load of cobblers.
Sits there slumped over the desk as if he's there under sufferance, as in his little world we all sit waiting on the edge of seats for his words of wisdom.
Sorry to disappoint you Claridge but I don't think are many around who do.

As i said before its just jealousy because we have a manger with more passion in his little finger than most other mangers put together and they hate us for it. Because both bristol clubs are a embarrassment it twists the local BBC sports journalist up inside.
Steve Claridge is a failed washed up has been and hates us. Even BBC five live refused to take calls from swindon fans trying to praise PDC for his efforts I say F.CK THEM ALL
"NO ONE LIKES US WE DONT CARE"

Say WE ARE GOING UP, WE ARE GOING UP.
Hi Jayden,

Bampton looked good yesterday as did Tadpole Bridge and the road up to Buckland, so thanks for that. Came back usual way almost but via Burford as I gave a lift to a couple of chaps on the way back.

I had issues with Claridge a while back and got put down for it, perhaps a few more are seeing now what I saw then. Sorry to say I rarely watch his show now as its on too late and I'm too busy to watch it on player etc. I think the bloke , ahem, (his favourite saying, ahem), is as you describe. We all see things differently, because we are human, but like Patey for example, I don't like the bloke. I do think that Leroy tries to do it better when he is on, but I think he is easily led by the Maniche guy. Doubt if I could do any better. I think they need somebody who tells the truth and actually does some research on matters properly rather than spout the rubbish about clubs such as ours right now. I'm going to have to watch more of ITV 4 as they seem to putting a lot lore on now, even if they have the dreaded adverts.
Hi wiz snowing here again today.No one else seems to have read the football league paper i was hopeing to get others views on this trash.
Have normally bought and read it by now as I love the fact you get more then 1 column inch and it is about the football....not been out today though.
---.
I really don't understand this BBC issue - need to get hold of our inside man at the Beeb and find out what it is....we all know Claridge hates us but then it is perfectly mutual!! :-)
---.
Unless everyone agrees with him he gets all pompus and spouts drivel - like when the Bournemouth player picked the ball up in the penalty area -
"I feel sorry for the defender and not his fault the referee's to blame for not giving the free-kick"....WHAT!?
..yes you feel for him but he picked the ball up with no whistle!...DUH!!?

Yes I said to my mate (yes I do have one). Look at Paolo after he called flint over to give him advise on how to combat the threat from the sub before he walked on the pitch. Pure genius also perhaps it's me flint don't look so intimidating to the refs with his hair shorter?. As to the ref I thought he was absolutely brilliant yesterday with no one commenting on him so far, so I thought I might just mention him, as you also likes to appraise officials.
Onwards and upwards.
The league starts now
The ref wasn't too bad, a few strange decision, took a look at the Shrews site this morning, their manager Graham Turner thought after seeing the play back the penalty looked a bit harsh, but he did admit it was hard to judge from the dugout and he did praise our fans effort to get the game played and admitted we were the better team that didn't give his players any time on the ball.

What did you think of the the lady lineswoman on the Arlells side I thought she got a few decisions wrong but nothing too controversial, in fact the ref over ruled her on a couple of occassions.
Thought she looked more like a bloke.
Yeah she did do a couple of dodgy mistakes but as I said the ref rectified it that's why I thought he had a good game and also he could have gave a free kick outside the box instead of waiting to award a pen, another great shout.
Going back to the lino she could have been used better, like making and cooking the pizzas for Paolo and his red and white helpers.
No place for women in the world of football.

No way Mate have to disagree. Martin is excellent up front and the reason why Williams is getting more direct running with his pace, due to the fact that he can hold the ball and find a pass. He is a clever player. Watch how many free kicks he plays for as well. Really hope we keep him. The goals will come.

Swindon town 3rd in div 1, say no more, the BBC are so bias, they are a disgrace.

Be interesting to see how they ignore us when we beat Tranmere away next Saturday....no doubt they'll focus on what is happening off the pitch.

Say WE ARE GOING UP, WE ARE GOING UP.
Hi Jayden,

Bampton looked good yesterday as did Tadpole Bridge and the road up to Buckland, so thanks for that. Came back usual way almost but via Burford as I gave a lift to a couple of chaps on the way back.

I had issues with Claridge a while back and got put down for it, perhaps a few more are seeing now what I saw then. Sorry to say I rarely watch his show now as its on too late and I'm too busy to watch it on player etc. I think the bloke , ahem, (his favourite saying, ahem), is as you describe. We all see things differently, because we are human, but like Patey for example, I don't like the bloke. I do think that Leroy tries to do it better when he is on, but I think he is easily led by the Maniche guy. Doubt if I could do any better. I think they need somebody who tells the truth and actually does some research on matters properly rather than spout the rubbish about clubs such as ours right now. I'm going to have to watch more of ITV 4 as they seem to putting a lot lore on now, even if they have the dreaded adverts.
Not sure many on here ever liked him Wiz...just a few who were maybe being Devil's Advocate.
...
I thought the board meeting was today? If it was yesterday then no doubt we'll get a trickle in the morning from the articles (none seem to come out on a Sunday any more) but there may be a lot of secrecy required still if potential buyers are short-listed.
Hi Ian, yes you may well be right about the meeting. I did however notice that Nick Watkins was obvious by his absence yesterday as well or did I just miss him. I was in the LL not long after 12 and did do a sortie up to the chuck wagon, but didn't see him doing his rounds at all.

I hope its Black who makes any announcements when the time comes. I don't trust Wyatt Earp one bit, typical cowboy. With diplo's like him is it any wonder we never get hostages back alive.

Hi wiz snowing here again today.No one else seems to have read the football league paper i was hopeing to get others views on this trash.
I've read it jayden. Absolutely appalling piece of journalism. I buy the FL Paper most weeks and am usually very impressed with Chris Dunlavy's writing, but this is terrible stuff. He hasn't bothered to check the facts; he's obviously just relied on a few sensationalist headlines to create one of his own.
.
I'm not sure why so many people are getting so upset about the Football League Show. They have featured us prominently many times in the past, and I'm sure they will do so again in the near future. I like the programme and I 'm really not fussed whether Claridge likes us or not. He's paid to speak his mind not to like or be liked by any club or its fans. There is nothing worse than a football pundit who sits on the fence all the time for fear of upsetting anyone. I'm sure Trevor Brooking stopped doing it years ago because the splinters were getting too uncomfortable. I bet there are fans at every club who say Claridge is biased against them, just as there are those who think they are the only ones who ever suffer from suspect refereeing decisions.

Dunno about the lino in front of the DR, blind or what, but like most I'm sure they are like old dogs. Most old dogs suffer with selective hearing, linos' suffer with selective vision.

How they missed some of the stuff in the first half I dunno, and the penalty, well I think the ref wasn't going to give it initially but the crowd uproar changed his mind. Surprised Alan Macca didn't get a card for the penalty foul.

Hi Jayden,

Bampton looked good yesterday as did Tadpole Bridge and the road up to Buckland, so thanks for that. Came back usual way almost but via Burford as I gave a lift to a couple of chaps on the way back.

I had issues with Claridge a while back and got put down for it, perhaps a few more are seeing now what I saw then. Sorry to say I rarely watch his show now as its on too late and I'm too busy to watch it on player etc. I think the bloke , ahem, (his favourite saying, ahem), is as you describe. We all see things differently, because we are human, but like Patey for example, I don't like the bloke. I do think that Leroy tries to do it better when he is on, but I think he is easily led by the Maniche guy. Doubt if I could do any better. I think they need somebody who tells the truth and actually does some research on matters properly rather than spout the rubbish about clubs such as ours right now. I'm going to have to watch more of ITV 4 as they seem to putting a lot lore on now, even if they have the dreaded adverts.
Not sure many on here ever liked him Wiz...just a few who were maybe being Devil's Advocate.

I thought the board meeting was today? If it was yesterday then no doubt we'll get a trickle in the morning from the articles (none seem to come out on a Sunday any more) but there may be a lot of secrecy required still if potential buyers are short-listed.
Hi Ian, yes you may well be right about the meeting. I did however notice that Nick Watkins was obvious by his absence yesterday as well or did I just miss him. I was in the LL not long after 12 and did do a sortie up to the chuck wagon, but didn't see him doing his rounds at all.

I hope its Black who makes any announcements when the time comes. I don't trust Wyatt Earp one bit, typical cowboy. With diplo's like him is it any wonder we never get hostages back alive.
Have to admit, didn't see him myself either - he almost always comes into the members lounge but didn't appear yesterday.....we had an awful lot of extra people around us yesterday and not sure they we're all sponsors overflow either...if you get my drift.

Where would be a good place to watch the Crawley v Swindon match on TV in Swindon?..can't go due to commitments during the day but am not missing it for anything!

Hi Jayden, Bampton looked good yesterday as did Tadpole Bridge and the road up to Buckland, so thanks for that.

Hi wiz snowing here again today.No one else seems to have read the football league paper i was hopeing to get others views on this trash.
I've read it jayden. Absolutely appalling piece of journalism. I buy the FL Paper most weeks and am usually very impressed with Chris Dunlavy's writing, but this is terrible stuff. He hasn't bothered to check the facts; he's obviously just relied on a few sensationalist headlines to create one of his own. . I'm not sure why so many people are getting so upset about the Football League Show. They have featured us prominently many times in the past, and I'm sure they will do so again in the near future. I like the programme and I 'm really not fussed whether Claridge likes us or not. He's paid to speak his mind not to like or be liked by any club or its fans. There is nothing worse than a football pundit who sits on the fence all the time for fear of upsetting anyone. I'm sure Trevor Brooking stopped doing it years ago because the splinters were getting too uncomfortable. I bet there are fans at every club who say Claridge is biased against them, just as there are those who think they are the only ones who ever suffer from suspect refereeing decisions.
Haven't read the article but I do find it a bit annoying that there is no mention of Bournemouth, who also have a rich backer.

Perhaps a number of Journo's are looking to retire to the South Coast, or is it because they have a nice manager, or have they been through SO MUCH. Lower average attendance, a big squad, pay £400,000 for a player, bid £?000,000 for Ritchie. Are they cheating too ?????

Answer is NO same as Town, we are both very lucky to have or have had a backer that has supported the club.

As for the football league show, quite happy to not be mentioned until we win it in April :-)

Hi Den well im glad it was not just me that thought Chris Dunlavys article was poor to say the least.Yep i couldnt care less what any of the pundits have to say i just commented on the use of that team in third phraise.Enjoy the cold yesterday Den? We will meet up soon im sure.One last thing i thought the ref was poor for both sides yesterday but the linesmen/woman were good.
Dunno about the lino in front of the DR, blind or what, but like most I'm sure they are like old dogs. Most old dogs suffer with selective hearing, linos' suffer with selective vision. How they missed some of the stuff in the first half I dunno, and the penalty, well I think the ref wasn't going to give it initially but the crowd uproar changed his mind. Surprised Alan Macca didn't get a card for the penalty foul.
Thought the Ref was good yesterday, he got all the important decisions right.

Our penalty, I think Andy Williams deserves credit for not actually going down until wrestled to the floor. The guy had hold of his arm and to Andy's credit he tried to beat the guy rather than go down. The foul started outside the box and finished well inside, how many players would have gone down earlier ?

Had a perfect view and definately a Penalty, as was their's (sadly).

Have to agree, Williams, if we can keep him, could turn out a bit of a legend here. His overall contribution to the game is terrific. I still think he would do well as a winger if we ever have a problem with Ritchie, his wide right play and ball passing into the box is superb.
Then put Raffa up front, he knows where to put the ball without doubt, just surprised we don't see more of him at the front.

missed 7 clear fouls ,gave them advantage then when we gained advantage he stopped the game and gave a foul nowhere near where it was their pen was right ours to the letter of the law was a foul outside the box .Allowed a trainer on just to walk straight off the other side of the pitch (ferry) Missed a back pass.But we all see it different thats what makes the game its funny because i didnt think he was bad but just got easy things wrong.

Used to think that the comments on here about the FLS were a bit paranoid but went to bed in a huff too last night.

I couldn't give a stuff whether Claridge like us or not but when listening to two so called 'informed' pundits summing up a limited number of fixtures in League 2, you would have thought the form team who hasn't lost for donkeys, has a scoring and clean sheets record second to none, has just announced it is up for sale and had 60 fans out on the pitch with the manager until 1am, might, just might, have got a mention.

Still, I refuse to become paranoid, although someone has just told me that BBC stand for Broadcasting for Bristol City.

I reckon Maniche ought to man-up and tell the producer to get some proper football dialogue of the programme.

For our penalty their defender started fouling Willo outside the box. Should that have been given from where it started? Same as the Ritchie yellow card foul - that happened just inside our half, their guy carried on lost the ball fairly and the free kick was given where he lost it just outside our area?

As for the Football League show, I don't care much for Steve Claridge's opinion on anything. That show is 75% focussed on the Championship. L1 and L2 are an afterthought with the occasional visit to a club from Clem. A routine home win for the club that started in 5th place was never going to grab their attention, even with our fantastic snow shovelling, pizza providing, destined for the top manager.

In fact I don't care much for many forms of the media at the moment with some of the rubbish getting written at the moment (not a pop at Sam). The latest one by Dulaney as mentioned above is terrible journalism.

I think its high time now that the club called a press conference and spelt it out once and for all to stop all the mis informed and bad press which we have received. High time for some high handed editors to get their rears kicked and some retractions and apologies made as well. Will that happen ? doubtful, but it does no good to our cause for this mis information to continue by so called experts and pundits, self masterbators the lot of them.

Just to explain to those who haven't seen the article in the FL Paper, the headline is: "Swindon: the 'cheats' who really prospered", then "THEY BOUGHT PROMOTION BY NOT PAYING £13m BILLS". Here's a snippet from the article: "Every time Swindon added to the wage bill (currently around £3m a year), they knew somebody else was going unpaid. They were spending money they didn't have, otherwise known as financial doping."
.
The club is in debt to its owners. Almost every club in the country is in debt to its owners. If we are cheats, what does that make Chelsea, Manchester United etc? That question was conveniently avoided. Horrible, spiteful stuff.

Wilesy, if the foul starts outside the box I think refs will always play advantage while the attacker stays on his feet. If the defender carries on the foul into the box, he quite rightly gets punished with a penalty.

Trainer came on because Ferry asked for him. He was physically sick and didn't need him after.

The back pass rule is so confusing and can be mis-interpreted. This is one rule that needs to be clarified, especially to kids playing as they have terrible problems with it. I don't recall one on Saturday but maybe I interpret the rule differently.

Agree about the Ritchie incident, advantage was played until they lost possession and the foul should have been taken back to where it occured.

The Williams penalty, difficult, the guy had hold of his arm outside the box but Andy's strength took him well inside (3-4 yards) before he was finally hauled down. If a player attempts a trip, fails first time outside the box because the player is strong enough but then succceeds second time inside the box, should the free kick be awarded for the first trip or the second ?

Anyone remember the Paolo quote from last season about penalties.

Our financial situation is clearly that the own wants out and he would like his money back, if pos. We dont owe the council, the taxman, players or any suppliers. So whats the problem. Black sell and someone else buys - simple transaction.

Yet a thought occured to me, Port Vale went into admin last season cos of financial difficulties. now after a restructuring they're riding high in L2. Don't hear anyone knocking them.

Not sure if this is a good analogy...but here goes:

You buy a used car for £5k.

You keep the car for a couple of years during which time you either:

A) Spend thousands upgrading the vehicle to a better standard.
(Read: Sign Players, Gain Promotion, Push for 2nd Promotion)


B) Spend just enough money so the car loses no value.
(Read: Retain league status....just)

C) Spend no money on maintenance and accept the car WILL have an ongoing depreciation in value.
(Read: Freefall out of existance)


Whichever option you choose is up to you as the OWNER, and it is also up to you as the OWNER to sell that car at WHATEVER PRICE YOU CHOOSE!!

I think the Williams incident was a long continuous foul which got worse inside the area, so a fair penalty.

The Ritchie one though should surely have been taken back to where the foul started and ended. Otherwise if the attacker had run on 10 yards further into the box and then had the ball taken off him you're saying that should be a penalty?

Wilesy, maybe I'm not recalling the incident properly but I thought Ritchie had hold of the bloke's shirt continuously until the ref stopped it because the attacker couldn't get away from him - and then the the free kick was given at that point. If that was the case and the bloke had kept running into the box with his shirt being pulled all the time, the yes I think a penalty would be right too. But I think you might be telling me that it wasn't a continous foul and I have to say I'm not sure about that.
