That's it from us, folks. A lot of straight-batted answers from Paolo Di Canio to questions regarding his future at Swindon Town after his players secure a good point on the road.

We'll be back with you from Colchester's Weston Homes Community Stadium from 6.30pm on Tuesday, by the sounds of it Di Canio will be too.

Until next time.

7:57pm

Striker Rooney was just pleased to be involved having not featured for Town since November 24.

ADAM ROONEY

“It is good to get on because I have been waiting for a chance, it came tonight and I got on the scoresheet which helped us get a point," he said.

“The lads had been on a great run and the forwards were banging in goals, so I have been patient and taken my chance.

“I just grabbed the ball and the lads let me have it, and thankfully I scored.”

7:50pm

Di Canio was pleased with the point his side earned today, and praised the impact of sub Adam Rooney.

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald: Adam Rooney

ADAM ROONEY

“In the way we started the game and finished the first half it is a good point, it is obvious I wasn’t enjoying the first half.

“The players feel the cause more than ever, and at the end we score a goal and have a few chances.

“It was a good point and we stay there, it is another away game gone and we play again Tuesday.

“Rooney has been ready for a few weeks and he was a different player, I tried him also in a wide area and he played a very important part.

“Credit has to go to him and I know now I can give him a chance."

7:48pm

Manager Paolo Di Canio is currently speaking to the media, and is not talking about his future today.

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

PAOLO DI CANIO

“I don’t think about this, it is a match day and the statement is clear," he said.

“I speak only about my players and we look forward to the future.

“There is a moment where you have to make decision on something, and I did that yesterday.

“It is easy to say why not after the game, but I have one reason.

“It took 10 or 15 minutes to make the statement then I am an animal straight away again.

“You can spend 10 or 15 minutes watching a beautiful film or watching a football match, or making a statement.

“Today I was totally focused.

“Tomorrow we are working, Monday we are working and we play a game on Tuesday where three points we can win.

“I am preparing the next game.”

Di Canio is currently talking in the middle of the pitch with his agent Phil Spencer.

7:20pm

7:17pm

Sky Sports saying Di Canio looked tearful as he saluted the Town fans at the end of the game.

We couldn't see anything from up here, but I'm sure plenty of questions will be answered when Paolo speaks to the media in a few minutes.

7:12pm

 

FULL-TIME: Crawley Town 1 Swindon Town 1

7:11pm

90+4 minutes: Thompson wriggles his way into the area but toe-pokes a shot at the keeper.

7:10pm

90 minutes: Flint does superbly to power a Dumbaya cross behind with hishead. Very authoritative. Town do well to clear two corners.

7:09pm

SUBSTITUTION: Mike Jones replaced by Sergio Torres

7:09pm

88 minutes: Jones tries to swing a cross into the box, but only managed to launch the ball out of the ground. Four minutes added on.

7:07pm

87 minutes: Rooney does well to block Matt Sparrow’s shot.

7:06pm

Wouldn't a Paolo celebration like that be exactly what the club needs given the events of this week?

7:04pm

84 minutes: Rooney’s shot is deflected and loops into the air, and after Ward challenges keeper Jones a free-kick is given. Very very harsh.

7:00pm

ATTENDANCE: 3,558 (699 Town fans)

6:59pm

SUBSTITUTION: Lateef Elford-Alliyu replaces Billy Clarke.

6:59pm

SUBSTITUTION: Roberts replaced by Chris Martin. 11 minutes left for him in a Town shirt.

6:58pm

78 mintues: Gary Roberts goes into the book for foul on Matt Sadler.
 

6:56pm

76 minutes: Miller and Jones clash heads, with both players receiving treatment before coming back on.

6:55pm

75 minutes: Roberts sends a teasing ball into the box which finds Williams, but the striker heads wide when he could have done better.

6:50pm

70 minutes: Williams wins a corner of Dumbuya, and after the ball is pinged around inside the box for nearly a minute, Crawley can clear after a free-kick is given against Miller.

6:46pm

66 minutes: Rooney just keeps influencing this game. This time the Irishman fires in a header at the near port, forcing a superb one-handed save from Jones.

6:43pm

63 minutes: Rooney breaks into the area and flashes the ball across the six-yard box instead of pulling it back for the advancing Roberts.

6:41pm

61 minutes: Crawley come straight out looking to regain their lead, and have penalty appeals turned away after Thompson blocks a shot behind with his chest.

6:39pm

 

59 minutes: GOAL 1-1 (Rooney pen) Rooney steps up to take the kick himself, and smashes the ball home. Great penalty.

6:38pm

PENALTY: The referee points to the spot after Adam Rooney is pushed to the floor by Joe Walsh.
 

6:32pm

DOUBLE SUBSTITUTION: Jay McEveley and James Collins replaced by Nathan Thompson and the lesser spotted Adam Rooney.

6:31pm

50 minutes: Williams shoots into the ground and hits a defender, forcing Jones to turn it round for a corner. From the set-piece De Vita head goalwards but it is blocked. The ball comes out and is played back in to Flint who fall to the floor, but no chance of a penalty

6:30pm

49 minutes: Josh Simpson sweeps a shot into the arms of Foderingham.

6:27pm

47 minutes: Jones runs the ball out for a goal kick, but if he had gone down he may have earned himself a penalty after McEveley had his arms all over the winner.

6:22pm

 

Teams back out for the second half and we are underway again. No changes.

6:15pm

6:09pm Sat 2 Feb 13

Moonraker1983 says

I can't watch anymore. It's a team devoid of ideas. When did we just start smacking it long and hoping for the best. Roberts can't deliver the ball and they've worked out the corner routine.

Fresh ideas for the second half. It's as if all the good ideas and invention went with Ritchie.

Worrying isn't it. In their defence the middle of the pitch is like a bog, but a team used to passing it around will always struggle when they decide to go long.

6:12pm

Not much quality from either side so far, but in honesty the home side have looked slightly more threatening in front of goal. Aden Flint is being pulled around the pitch by Billy Clarke and Jamie Proctor, with Clarke often dropping deep and looking to find his strike partner.

It should be 2-0 after Proctor saw an effort superbly saved by Wes Foderingham, but Town are still in this and need a big second period.

6:08pm

 

HALF-TIME: Crawley 1 (Clarke pen 23) Swindon 0

6:07pm

45 minutes: Foderingham keeps Town in it as he dives well to his left to save Proctor's effort. Flint had been sucked in to allow Clarke to play a good play in behind, with McEveley playing him onside.

6:06pm

45 minutes: Roberts fouls Adams, but Town are able to clear before Dumbuya stops Roberts’ break. One minute added.

6:04pm

Manager Paolo Di Canio spending very little time on the touchline in this first half.

6:03pm

40 minutes: McCormack jumps too early and misses his header, but gets lucky as the tricky Adams can’t control and knocks it out for a Town throw.

6:00pm

37 minutes: Town win a corner, but Miller’s first attempt is called back for the referee to speak to Roberts and Dumbuya. The second effort is cleared.

5:58pm

34 minutes: The ballis worked across the field for Roberts who cuts inside, and gets off a shot which is deflected over for a corner, which is cleared.

5:54pm

31 minutes: Crawley win another corner, and this time it is Simon Ferry who heads clear well.

5:52pm

29 minutes: Josh Simpson weaves his way into the Town box and past Flint, but Ward comes across to cover and deflect the Crawley captain’s shot out for a corner. The centre-half then managed to clear the following set-piece with a very brave header.

5:45pm

 

22 minutes GOAL 1-0 CRAWLEY (Clarke, pen): Alan McCormack drags down Adams, and Billy Clarke steps up and smashes the ball past Wes Foderingham. Definite penalty, and Town will have to come from behind.

5:44pm

20 minutes: Nicky Adams sends in a free-kick, which Flint clears well.
 

5:42pm

18 minutes: Darren Ward heads back across the box from a long free-kick, and Williams guides a headers straight at Jones. Would have caused problems if he had headed the ball down.

5:41pm

17 minutes: Jones clips in a pin-point ball for Jamie Proctor, but the striker is offside.

5:36pm

13 minutes: Flint heads another corner back across the box, but Dumbuya is there to clear the danger inside his six yard box.

5:35pm

12 minutes: Jay McEveley does superbly to see the ball out under pressure from Dumbuya.

5:33pm

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald:

PAOLO DI CANIO WATCHES THE WARM-UP AT CRAWLEY (Dave Evans)

5:29pm

Six minutes: Wes Foderingham does well to hammer a short Jay McEveley back-pass clear.

5:27pm

Four minutes: Tommy Miller sends in a deep corner which Aden Flint does well to head back into danger, allowing James Collins to bundle an effort towards goal and into the arms of Paul Jones.

5:26pm

Three minutes: Dumbuya sends the ball into the box which Mike Jones manages to send towards goal, but his effort is blocked.

5:23pm

Pretty scrappy start so far, with neither team getting the ball under control on a surface which is already cutting up.

5:20pm

We are underway

5:20pm

Town into their pre-match huddle, and we are nearly ready to go.

Three points will take Town within three of the top two. Such a big game.

5:05pm

Chants of 'Don't go Di Canio' begin from the away end.

5:03pm

IN THE HOME DUGOUT – Richie Barker

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald: Richie Barker has mixed feelings about Crawley's FA Cup third round draw

The former Sheffield Wednesday, Rotherham and Mansfield striker is in his first season as the Red Devils’ manager, having taken over following Sean O’Driscoll’s incredibly brief reign which lasted only two months.

As a journeyman lower league football Barker scored over 100 goals, most of which came in two spells for Rotherham as he helped them win promotion to the Championship in 2001.
After retiring he moved into coaching with Bury’s youth team, before taking over the top job in 2011.

After O’Driscoll’s departure Crawley came calling, where he was worked alongside director of football Steve Coppell to lead the club to mid-table safety following promotion last season.

"The most important thing is today's game. If we win today we are very close to the top and that's the priority," he said.

4:48pm

DANGER MEN
Billy Clarke
(left)

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald: Goalscorers Nicky Ajose and Billy Clarke celebrate at the end. Picture by Tony Wood

The former Ipswich and Blackpool man is capable of playing both out wide and through the middle, but is expected to take up a central striking role this afternoon. A cruciate knee ligament injury has robbed him of a yard of pace, but he is still more than capable of getting in behind and causing problems. When he does get a chance, he is a quality finisher.

Matt Sparrow

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald: Matt Sparrow will serve a two-match ban

The midfielder has a wealth of experience in the Football League, most notably for Scunthorpe. He is both creative and direct, and can just as easily drive in behind the defence or play a killer ball into the strikers. Sparrow can also pop up with a vital goal, and needs to be watched.

Jamie Proctor

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald:
The striker will make his Red Devils debut this afternoon after signing on a permanent deal from Swansea. He was predicted to be a star in the making when with hometown club Preston, but after earning himself a move to Wales he failed to make the grade. Proctor is a good all-round striker, who can hold the ball up and beat his man in equal measure.

4:13pm

A turbulent week at the County Ground came to a head last night when Paolo Di Canio released a statement exclusively to the Swindon Advertiser stating that he is considering his future at the County Ground.

Di Canio's comments came after the sale of Matt Ritchie to Bournemouth without his knowledge or approval, which the Italian said was contrary to the terms of his contract.

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald: Town boss Paolo Di Canio

PAOLO DI CANIO

Following the breaking of the news on www.swindonadvertiser.co.uk at around 7pm, the story spread like wildfire. 

Today, the Adver has received a statement from Trust STFC - who lay out four questions they would like answered.

It reads: "The Supporters Trust is extremely concerned at Paolo Di Canio’s statement that he is considering his position.  Paolo has been the principal reason for our club’s extraordinary success over the past 18 months and it is vital that he remains to finish the job he has started.

"We are grateful to the new owners for enabling the club to avoid administration following Andrew Black’s decision to divest himself of Swindon Town. 

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald: Yeovil Town first meet Swindon Town on Saturday, September 12, at Huish Park

"In view of Paolo’s account of events in the past few days however the new owners owe it to the fans and indeed to Paolo urgently to clarify the following matters:

  • 1. Who is currently running our club?
  • 2. What steps are the new owners taking to ensure that we retain the services of key members of the playing staff and the manager?
  • 3. Who are the members of the consortium who have bought the club?
  • 4. Do they still plan to take the club to Championship level in the time scale agreed by the previous board with the manager?

"We urge Mr McCrory to allay these concerns immediately."

4:07pm

TEAM NEWS

Nothing official as yet but here's a quick rundown of those we know are definitely out of action for Swindon today.

Joe Devera suffered a recurrence of a hamstring injury on Tuesday night and misses out, as does Miles Storey with a similar problem.

Troy Archibald-Henville continues his recovery from a knee operation, while rumours are circulating of an illness bug within the Town squad - which has yet to be confirmed.

LEAGUE ONE HALF-TIMES

Everything seems to be going Town’s way this afternoon, with Tranmere, Doncaster, Notts County and Brentford all losing, while Sheffield United lost to Coventry last night.

4:00pm

Good afternoon ladies and gents and welcome to the Advertiser’s live coverage of Swindon Town’s trip to Crawley.

After the events of the past week the football comes as a welcome distraction from the confusion and conjecture about the state of the club’s boardroom, and the Robins will be hoping to secure all three points at the Broadfield Stadium.

Town have won their last three matches against the Red Devils, all by a 3-0 scoreline, and a repeat of that result would go down very nicely indeed come seven o’clock this evening.

Stick with us for all the best build-up to the match, followed by match updates and reaction.

Buckle up and enjoy.

OK, well 2, i am not going to be drawn into more at this time As PDC has had some of his wish, it's still his decision, I will say he has received a chance to speak with another club, but the new chairman (potential chairman) has put some kind of guarantee's to him.

I don't think it will be enough to keep him after end of season, but even now it's down to PDC.

All I am saying, if you knew what I knew, you would hate Mr Black!

Bye Bye Paulo. The tears in your eyes leaves me feeling the worst. Fair play to the fans at the game today- totally out sang Crawley- if PDC does stay- it will be for the fans.
No tears it was ruddy cold out there and sky sports were trying there best to say he looked tearful and when they looked again after the game there was nothing. Best of all he talked tonight about preparing for the game on Tuesday against Colchester. He will meet the new board early next week and get his three players in at the end of the week so I'm afraid weve got him til the end of the season at least.

Someone on here has often said that if you draw your away games and win your home games, you go up. {Sorry, I cannot remember which poster}.

So on that basis, a valuable point today after a horrible few days!!

And we WILL beat Colchester and Hartlepool next week.

IF we can still sign the three new loans and I know it is a big if, we are going up with automatic promotion, WITHOUT DOUBT!!!!!!

Evening,

OK, well 2, i am not going to be drawn into more at this time As PDC has had some of his wish, it's still his decision, I will say he has received a chance to speak with another club, but the new chairman (potential chairman) has put some kind of guarantee's to him.

I don't think it will be enough to keep him after end of season, but even now it's down to PDC.

Very impressed with Flint and Ward winning everything in the air. Rafa showed some excellent touches.

May be its time to give Rooonnneeeyyy another chance as he made a difference.Wasn't so impressed with Martin's contribution, don't understand when their right back had the ball in the corner why Martin could't stand off him, was so obvious that bundling him in the back would give away a free kick.

1 point gained for me after the week we had.

Hard fought for point that today. You can't play passing football on a pitch like that. I've seen better rec's! Disgrace, teams should be fined for producing a playing surface like that.

Still looks touch and go with Di Canio to me. The man looked totally gutted today on TV.

The thing that's worrying is just how he'll be able to forge a working relationship with the new board after being treated like this?

I don't think it will be enough to keep him after end of season, but even now it's down to PDC.

Either spit it out or clear off lad. You and mushy need to get out more.
fine then, that's it STFC fans, I give up, you was to find out something big.

But now I just cannot be bothered with you, unlike yourself at home, I'm currently on a train after a supporting my team!
Good night !
Find out something big?? whats that in your trousers, I'd take that into the cubicle mate and give it a bash then we can call you a W*anker.

http://www.urbandict ionary.com/define.ph p?term=Mushy%20Mushy
Oxford red Mushy mushy is Japanese look it up. the urban dictionary is for chavs .which would suit someone who comes from Oxford and supports swindon.
I prefer the Urban ones:

Either:

1. A female who has no control when it comes to a certain man.
In the past this same woman has called all the shots, but now has lost her edge and is soft in the brain over him.

2. *The word commonly used in referance to having sexual encounters with one of the same or opposite gender.
*created as from a "slip of the tongue" while V meant to say "mushies" refering to mushrooms but "came out" with "mushy.

3. A word that describes when somethings emotional

I think it must (1) because you probably haven't had (2) and you probably don't know what (3) means. Sorry Paolo spurned you when he found out you were a Pox fan, get over it, I hear Chris Wilder enjoys a dominant female (ask James).

Not much comment on the game tonight, why waste your thoughts on off field events. Let's speak about hte game.

My view.

Fodders - excellent as usual
Macca - terrible at RB, better when he moved to LB
Ward - very solid
Flint - very solid
McEverley - not at his best, right decision to take him off, lacking match fitness.
Miller - not as good as Holland, done his best, but doesn't have the engine for 90 minutes
Ferry - plenty of energy, but struggled on a bog of a pitch
Roberts - really worked hard, but quite ineffective in the final third
De Vita - same as Roberts
Williams - poor
Collins - poor

Subs. Rooney did well, but lacks pace
martin, too little time to make an impression.
Thompson, why oh why did he not start, macca was shocking at RB and gave the penalty away. my MoM

Sure there will be fans that see it different, quite satisfied with the draw, but as per usual with all goalies that play against us Jones pulled off a couple of fantastic saves and without his saves it would have been 3 points for us.

All very quiet on the take over front. What are the thougts on the match?

Personally thought we were good in phases and the pitch was a shocker.

Same for both sides I know, but it made life difficult for our ball players.

Overall, draw a fair result. Thought both penalties were soft, but our softest.

Jay looked out of sorts, perhaps understandably and Nathan proved just how good he is when he came on.

Glad just not to lose today under the circumstances.

listen mushed up in the head or sad act for short

I just listened to the PDC interview on BBC Sports three times, in case I missed anything.

For me he has changed in recent months from a rookie manager to a totally inspirational leader.

IF we can still sign the three loan players that PDC wants, we are going up, simple as that!!

AUTOMATIC PROMOTION COMING UP AGAIN, IF WE CAN JUST GET THOSE LOAN PLAYERS THAT PDC WANTS!!!!!!!!!!

All very quiet on the take over front. What are the thougts on the match?

Personally thought we were good in phases and the pitch was a shocker.

Same for both sides I know, but it made life difficult for our ball players.

Overall, draw a fair result. Thought both penalties were soft, but our softest.

Jay looked out of sorts, perhaps understandably and Nathan proved just how good he is when he came on.

Glad just not to lose today under the circumstances.
Lydiardred,

Our post must have crossed, my thoughts are pretty similar to yours, the pitch was attrocious, both penalties were soft and I agree we were lucky to get ours, but that Adams guy for them did seem to go down very easily for theirs and IMO should have got a YELLOW for diving on more than one occassion and he was aggressive to Macca when he was called a ****, another ref could have given him a red. But in general thought the officials were fine although the ref was very lenient with their play acting (Evans training live on)

Still don't understand why Nathan didn't start, Jay isn't yet ready, no reason to change a solid back 4, pleased with Rooney, despite what other posters may say about him, I think that is 4 goals in 7 appearances, very good ratio in my book.

2 points from 2 games away from home is not great but could be worse, still unbeaten from 9 games, but on the plus side all of the other teams in contension except Bournemouth lost, so some ground has been made.

So important to get 3 points next Tuesday against Colchester to close the gap.

Don't want to talk about the game except a good point on a ploughed field.

Today was about us fans that made the journey and told PDC what we thought of him. If those tears were for "respect" from the special one for us Supporters then today was a good day.

"We want you to stay, we want you to stay, Paolo Di Canio we want you to stay"

Its the fans that keep you going and we did ourselves proud on national tv.
Been suffering from this cold virus for the last week and should not really have driven today but sometimes you need to do that extra bit for your Club

Was great to be interviewed on sky tv and tell the Country about how special PDC is to this great Club, our Club - STFC.

Til we Die.

I have a feeling that this time next week we'll either have PDC, the new loan signings and new owners or none of the three and be staring a large points deduction in the face. Looks like all or nothing now.

It seems that other clubs love to dish out ridicule towards us, BUT, how many come here and play on a mud pool. They don't. Our pitch is well maintained, well drained and treated well by ground staff who probably put the pitch as a big first in their life. Even after the snow, it was such a perfect surface. Wilson and our manager now have both stated how important the playing surface is and conjusive it is for playing good football.

BIG shame other clubs don't share that view or passion. Orient and Crawley, both would be big time Charlie clubs yet they haven't got a good pitch unless its August or September, even then its down to luck.
Perhaps the vacillaters from the FL should be looking into the standard of pitches and grounds as opposed to dragging their feet over our change of ownership. Ahsoles.

Likewise as soon as I hit submit I saw your postvwhich mirrired my thoughts only in more detail.

My assumption is that Nathan must have been suffering from the virus hence only on the bench.

Wierdly I thought Macca played bettervat left back, however he is becoming increasingly maveric in his play.

Williams, Jay, Roberts all had average games but I put that down to the pitch and with Jay, that was heavy ground to test his knee on.

All in all, wanted a win but relieved with a draw.

That's an interesting point Wiz. In cricket you loose points for failing to maintain a proper wicket, perhaps the same should apply to football?

Wiz, there seems to be a touch of bitterness about many of your posts lately. Have you such a short memory that you don't remember the awful surface we had at the County Ground for many years? In any case, football is a winter game in this country, and we have seen some cracking matches - particularly Cup ties on pitches far worse than Crawley's. Perhaps we have spent a lot more money on ours than Orient or Crawley they have on theirs. Does that give us any right to look down on them when we are deep in financial sh1t? And how do you know the Football League are dragging their feet over our change of ownership? Do you know what the process involves or how long it normally takes? How do you justify calling them @rseholes? The Football League has a duty to protect the game in general and individual clubs from unsuitable or unscrupulous would be owners. I find it hard to see why you would object to that, even if you have done your own due diligence on "Jed" (as you like to call him, while referring to the man who saved our club with millions of pounds as "Black") and given him the green light to proceed. You keep tossing these hand grenades in and your only rationale seems to be tribal and selfish sour grapes.

Personally, and as much as it frustrates my impatience, i hope the FL take as long as they need.

I would rather wait one or two more days and have a fit and proper owner, than rush it through and miss something.

Regardless of the mood of Wiz's posts, there is an issue about the quality of pitches. A good pitch certainly makes for a different style of game (a better one in my opinion) and can significantly affect the outcome of a game.

Two good examples of the latter involve the allowing of a horse show on a pitch a few days before a cup final to allow one of the biggest shocks of all time, and an over sanded pitch which produced a bobble for a sharp shooter to shin the ball over and miss out on promotion.

On that basis you could argue that was the condition of the pitch that has coloured the relative merits of two of the Town's managers.

I don't think that is sour grapes.

Den, No I'm not exactly bitter but if we can make the effort then surely other clubs should have some sort of moral obligation to do the same. Yes I agree sometimes the weather has influence, so does drainage, so do covers, so why spend a fortune pro rata on a side of players that you hope will get you somewhere, when they can't play because of the pitch.

We are now in 2013, this isn't post war Britain recovering from WW2 anymore. In the day and age of soil specialists, grass land research and several durable grass's available, drainage experts etc, etc. Why should football as a whole suffer in this day and age when it can do so much better.

As goes the FL, just read back on my posts all through the sale etc and I have been saying it will take as long as it takes. As goes the rest of it, compered to many I have been quite understanding, but on the nonsense of cancelled games, sorry but I don't see some other clubs making any effort, and its time it was sorted in a more uniform manner. Things need to be put in place now on a time scale agreed by the clubs at their yearly meeting.

Just seen the game on the FLS.

What a fantastic move leading to Rooney's header towards the end an only a great save kept us from 3 points.

Reminds me of two things. Great saves and clean sheets are something at which we are the best in the Football League. Take a bow Fodders, you are real class mate.

Second point, we are well in touch for promotion and if just 1or 2 of the proposed loan signings come through, then game on.

Perhaps the vacillaters from the FL should be looking into the standard of pitches and grounds as opposed to dragging their feet over our change of ownership. Ahsoles.
Wiz,
very good post, I can't think for the life of me why oi den has chosen to have a go at you for stating the obvious, there has been 3 of our games postponed away from home because none of them are capable of maintaining the state of their pitch, (I would also add it may be a coincidence, but all had injuries or players band which may have just made it easier for them not play their games).in my opinion they would never be able to participate at a higher level, regardless of how good their teams are today, the grounds are a disgrace, more the reason why we need to get out of this dreadful league.

By the way Den, I know you and LR usually like to have the last word and most times I don't have a problem with that because I do respect both your opinions. On this occassion with you I think you are totally out of order with your negative comments to Wiz, he has made a very valid point and I am totally in agreement with Wiz and very disappointed to read such negative views from you.

I think you owe him a big apology, because nothing you have said makes sense other than reasons you only know why have a go at a very valid point raised by a respected poster. Doh!

It seems likely that Swindon would`ve got the three at Crawley if the pitch had been similar in condition to the County Ground. Many will argue that any ground in any condition is the same for both sides which is true but these poorly maintained grounds prevent good footie and the best of entertainment .Suitable maintenance costs money but this is an issue which the authorities need to do something about.

.
So the fact it is now 5 is great!

An away point is a great one and we just picked another one up!

Still in a great position and fingers crossed we get the news we want on Tuesday an we go to the soulless bowl and get a win

Then we get the 3 in an take it out on Hartlepool when we finally get to play on a pitch!

Hi Den i think you are a bit hard on wiz but you do have a point.We have had one of the worst weather years on record, the farmers have not been able to get into the fields and will need aleast 6 dry weeks to get on them.I also feel that our groundsman is worth his weight in gold for the job he does.All though yesterdays game was not the best it got the players thinking and showed how some can play on any playing surface and others cant.On the take over i to am happy that the fl are taking their time as i have been told who afew of them are and if this is true i would question their value none are a Mr Black i can tell you that much.

Daily mirror suggests PDC for Huddersfield as second choice. Been suggested before and I think he'll take any Championship job and rightly so as he's earned a shot at a level up. He's being quiet now to not give the board anything to sack him with and avoid paying him off but if another job comes up I think he'll resign and take his full back room staff with him. His win percentage is excellent and although a bit of a risk - all new appointments carry a risk. He'd put extra bums on seats and add a bit of extra passion. Untenable he said.

I'm not sure how or if 'Untenable' applies to the new board.

New board want PDC out. It's obvious. PDC making it hard for them. No way this will all blow over and everyone be friends. He will bide his time and when the right move is there he will go unless sacked before. Board know they can't compete with him on popularity so not being able to talk at the moment suits them. PDC said enough in his statement so don't expect too much more in the next few days unless its to announce departure although I'd imagine this wont happen until we have the week with no fixtures.

Rubbish....

Read this:

Swindon boss Paolo Di Canio said he was not immanently considering his future following his sides's 1-1 draw at Crawley.

The Italian had put his position in doubt the day before by issuing a statement criticising off-field events at the League One club.

Swindon avoided administration after agreeing a takeover by a local consortium earlier this week.

But because the deal has yet to be ratified, the Football League refused to let three players join and star winger Matt Ritchie to Bournemouth for £500,000 to raise funds.

When asked whether this would be the last interview he gave as Swindon chief the former West Ham ace replied: "I hope not. Tomorrow we work, Monday we work and Tuesday we play Colchester.

"We had a fantastic game, getting a good point, and had we won we would have been only two points away from the top two teams."

When pressed on whether he was immanently considering his future, Di Canio replied: "I'm focused on our next game."

Di Canio, who claimed in his statement on Friday that he felt his job "was not just impossible but untenable" refused to expand any further.

He added:"Today I'm not speaking about the statement. I'm only speaking

how proud I am of my players and how they came back."

A powerfully taken 59th minute penalty by substitute Adam Rooney extended the Robins unbeaten run to nine games after a spot kick by Billy Clarke had put Crawley ahead mid-way through the first half.

"This was a good point for us in another away game," the Italian added. "We had chances to win and came back strongly.It wasn't easy, my players game me everything and I'm more than pleased

I think your barking up the wrong tree....

I'm not saying he'll stay here till the end of his contract.

I am saying, he'll be here till the summer........

IMO

Come off it guys Den wasn't so far off beam - there's guys saying we would have won the game on a better pitch so how come Orient won at our place on a near perfect pitch? Also this idealistic notion that all pitches should meet a certain standard criteria is farcical. If that was the case half the pitches in the lower leagues would be vetoed and some in the Prem. People need to think outside the box sometimes- doesn't geographical location play a part? I'll bet the south east gets more inches of rain per annum than the Swindon area most years and that's from just noting weather patterns. Yes measures can be taken to improve and protect playing surfaces but that costs money that smaller clubs don't have.
All Town fans are currently worked up about survival and rightly so but I'd bet a pound to a pinch of sh!t they'd all settle for a pudding of a pitch if it meant the club stayed in business.

First of all why is it obvious the new people want Paolo out? If true then why? And don't say it's because his salary is too high as I think the gates will drop if Paolo leaves. Everything is conjecture at the moment and if the new people are not allowed their say until ratification by the Football League then maybe it's best to adopt a wait and see policy?

Paolo has unfinished business at Swindon and will want to finish what he started (if possible) because that is the sort of guy he is, and if he resigns from a managers job every time there is board problem etc then he may as well forget about a future in Management, he is a very intelligent man and will realise this.

I think he is now waiting to see if the new people are approved and if so will the 3 players then join us next weekend? If the answer to these 2 questions is yes then why would he leave? He will then try and finish what he started and get us promoted into the Championship...I guess if he achieved that he would have a string of big clubs vying for his signature!

But if the new people are just chancers and they are not approved which means the 3 players will not be joining us...hence almost certain Administration; then he will quit and our season will be over and our long term future will be under severe threat!!! Fingers crossed or a good outcome next week.

Finally...please ignore that Poxford fool MM as some of you are just feeding him what he wants!

Hi Den i think you are a bit hard on wiz but you do have a point.We have had one of the worst weather years on record, the farmers have not been able to get into the fields and will need aleast 6 dry weeks to get on them.I also feel that our groundsman is worth his weight in gold for the job he does.All though yesterdays game was not the best it got the players thinking and showed how some can play on any playing surface and others cant.On the take over i to am happy that the fl are taking their time as i have been told who afew of them are and if this is true i would question their value none are a Mr Black i can tell you that much. I see this mess as far from over i hope i am wrong totaly but as Pdc says on to the next game and thats all the players and fans can do and lets hope we sill have a club next season if not ill have to dust the golf clubs off .Life still goes on.
Just to balence things up I am with Den on this. I have no problem with people having an opinion and long may it contiunue with Wizard.

Personally I am only just becoming more active on this forum, mainly due to purchasing an ipad making posting easy but have been reading for a long time.

Wizards tone changed when the Di Canio debates were going on weeks ago.

His perogative though, just that Den recognised the chnange. Nothing more.

I recall the days when the swindon pitch was a quagmire it was worth a goal to us!
That said the pitch yesterday was awful and whilst it is the same for both teams it is a leveller. Town were prevented from playing their passing game but did well under the circumstances.
Club survival is paramount and retention of PDC is crucial.
I was shocked about the club's position earlier this week going from one of the wealthiest clubs in the league to possible administration. A mate was talking to Nick watkins after the game yesterday and said be calm be patient club should be sold Tuesday its been a horrible week.

We are now in 2013, this isn't post war Britain recovering from WW2 anymore. In the day and age of soil specialists, grass land research and several durable grass's available, drainage experts etc, etc. Why should football as a whole suffer in this day and age when it can do so much better.

As goes the FL, just read back on my posts all through the sale etc and I have been saying it will take as long as it takes. As goes the rest of it, compered to many I have been quite understanding, but on the nonsense of cancelled games, sorry but I don't see some other clubs making any effort, and its time it was sorted in a more uniform manner. Things need to be put in place now on a time scale agreed by the clubs at their yearly meeting. If they can agree rules around the wage fix at 60 & 65% or what ever they should also be looking at maintain fixtures to avoid fixture congestion. Its all about commitment and how much you want to be in the FL. Those clubs that can't/won't reach a minimum standard should be relegated down to a level where they fit in. There will be a queue of others baying to take their place.
Excellent reply Wiz and some food for thought.

That pitch last night was a disgrace and had a negative effect on the game.
Totally agree on the pitch - a disaster zone and given a decent surface we'd comfortably win 8 or 9 out of every 10 games v that bunch.
....
Absolutely awful surface and they should spend some of their copious funds on the surface....although it seems to suit their playing style.
...
As per another post - Bury manage quite well so why Crawley can't I've no idea.

In the day and age of soil specialists, grass land research and several durable grass's available, drainage experts etc, etc. Why should football as a whole suffer in this day and age when it can do so much better. As goes the FL, just read back on my posts all through the sale etc and I have been saying it will take as long as it takes. As goes the rest of it, compered to many I have been quite understanding, but on the nonsense of cancelled games, sorry but I don't see some other clubs making any effort, and its time it was sorted in a more uniform manner. Things need to be put in place now on a time scale agreed by the clubs at their yearly meeting. If they can agree rules around the wage fix at 60 & 65% or what ever they should also be looking at maintain fixtures to avoid fixture congestion. Its all about commitment and how much you want to be in the FL. Those clubs that can't/won't reach a minimum standard should be relegated down to a level where they fit in. There will be a queue of others baying to take their place.[/p][/quote]Excellent reply Wiz and some food for thought.

That makes sense Don for Paolo to wait and see what happens next week, exactly what I said in my earlier post.

As for Andrew Black, this is the guy who saved Swindon a few years ago and has spent millions of pounds of his own money which he has now written off!! It has been well documented that he has lost hundreds of millions of pounds due to share values falling on the stock market in this recession, and so he has decided he wants out. Yes the timing is not good and if he could have waited until the end of the season then sold his shares in the club he would of come out of this looking a lot better...and that chairman he appointed has done him no favours.

Bottom line is we are a club with average home gates of under 9k so long term viability means we should operate within our financial constraints, something we have not been doing for several seasons now. When I first started watching the Town we were a mid table division 3 team but regularly had 15k home attendances, and our first season in division 2 1970\1971 our average home gates were about 22,000 I think? The people who ran the club in those days never had the foresight or ambition to bicycle on that and move the club forward, in fact what they did was pass ownership of the CG to the local council!

Lets wait and see what next week brings, if Paolo stays then brilliant but if we do get promoted we need things to change to be able to stay in the championship, we need people who care about football and Swindon and a proper and viable long term financial plan or else it will be continual boom and bust lurching up and down the leagues with the threat of Administration always there...it shouldn't and needn't be this way!

PDC said enough in his statement so don't expect too much more in the next few days unless its to announce departure although I'd imagine this wont happen until we have the week with no fixtures.
First of all why is it obvious the new people want Paolo out? If true then why? And don't say it's because his salary is too high as I think the gates will drop if Paolo leaves. Everything is conjecture at the moment and if the new people are not allowed their say until ratification by the Football League then maybe it's best to adopt a wait and see policy?

Paolo has unfinished business at Swindon and will want to finish what he started (if possible) because that is the sort of guy he is, and if he resigns from a managers job every time there is board problem etc then he may as well forget about a future in Management, he is a very intelligent man and will realise this.

I think he is now waiting to see if the new people are approved and if so will the 3 players then join us next weekend? If the answer to these 2 questions is yes then why would he leave? He will then try and finish what he started and get us promoted into the Championship...I guess if he achieved that he would have a string of big clubs vying for his signature!

But if the new people are just chancers and they are not approved which means the 3 players will not be joining us...hence almost certain Administration; then he will quit and our season will be over and our long term future will be under severe threat!!! Fingers crossed or a good outcome next week.

Finally...please ignore that Poxford fool MM as some of you are just feeding him what he wants!
PDC does cost a lot of money and is not easy to work with. Previous owners extremely rich but new ones won't have the cash that PDC is used to. I'd even suggest that the old board knew that having to wait for FL clearance would mean that these transfers would not go through which they may have hoped would force PDC in to quitting. Otherwise Black could have made these transfers then 'sold' the club a week after with everyone happy. No one wants to sack him as it involves a big pay-out. Through his statement he's already said Phil met with the new board and they lied to him. If they did not they will be furious and if they did it explains why he is furious - either way this is more than just a bit of a flare up between a board and its manager. It's a tactical battle getting the fans on his side and not being pushed out while the board try and appear like they want him to stay in order to not lose the fans.

The 'board problem' is a bit more than that and people won't look at that as though he jumps ship at the first sign of trouble. Of course he's here to try and win things but with such an uncertain future if someone comes in for him now it may be in his interest to take them up on it. PDC and Phil know exactly what they are doing. I don't know exactly what but they are both intelligent men and are playing with the hand they have been dealt.

I'm not anti the new board or pro PDC but passing comment on what appears to be happening and keeping an objective view-point.

Good post Lazz.
Well done Lazz!....STFC2012 talks a lot of tripe at times and seems to think they're speaking on behalf of others...a pompous egotistical viewpoint is how another poster described them...I'm fast coming to the opinion (my own opinion though) that they were factually correct in their description.
----
Actually, being honest I came to agree the moment they posted it but thought I'd just make something up as well.
----
The statement:
"He will bide his time and when the right move is there he will go unless sacked before."
......that applies to every manager in the game doesn't it?....I'll bet a pound that he does decide to leave before he gets sacked....oh and that is Sir Alex I'm talking about....oh hang nope it's errr - well any of them.

Ok result yesterday, dire first half but better second and draw was fair. Might be a new start for Rooney, I had written him off after Macclesfield but with Martin going back, BWP in limbo and Storey injured, he is likely to get his chance.

Re PDC, I have almost come to accept the worst is going to happen. Ultimately he's always been out for himself and getting promotions on his CV (not a criticism) so if Huddersfield or anyone come in then I'm sure he'll be off. Otherwise I'm sure he'll hear the new owners out but if they don't have the money/ambition to back him then I would think he'll take the opportunity to leave with his reputation at a high point.

Interesting comments from Black on twitter too. Suggests more to the story so just hope that we finally get the truth and clear communication once sale goes through. Sick of the cloak and dagger BS of recent times

Crouchy, if the takeover goes through and we make the 3 signings then I think the 2 teams to go up automatically will be swindon and bournemouth ( di Canio or not). Will be watching to see how ritchie gets on, be warned he can have some very average games and shoots endlessly when a simple pass would be better, plus he is only good on decent surfaces and you don't get many of those in this league.

Excellent reply Wiz and some food for thought.

That pitch last night was a disgrace and had a negative effect on the game.
Totally agree on the pitch - a disaster zone and given a decent surface we'd comfortably win 8 or 9 out of every 10 games v that bunch.
....
Absolutely awful surface and they should spend some of their copious funds on the surface....although it seems to suit their playing style.
...
As per another post - Bury manage quite well so why Crawley can't I've no idea.
Agree. It makes you wonder if the poor pitch was part of the plan as they know have destructive we can be when we play it on the ground. It would be nice to have some sort of legislation for a minimum standard to avoid clubs doctoring their pitches, as cricket does so pevalently. How to enforce would be the issue though.
The frustrating thing was we were on TV and it would've been good to show the country our ability to play the beautiful game, but were denied by the Sunday League setup.

That pitch last night was a disgrace and had a negative effect on the game.[/p][/quote]Totally agree on the pitch - a disaster zone and given a decent surface we'd comfortably win 8 or 9 out of every 10 games v that bunch. .... Absolutely awful surface and they should spend some of their copious funds on the surface....although it seems to suit their playing style. ... As per another post - Bury manage quite well so why Crawley can't I've no idea.[/p][/quote]Agree. It makes you wonder if the poor pitch was part of the plan as they know have destructive we can be when we play it on the ground. It would be nice to have some sort of legislation for a minimum standard to avoid clubs doctoring their pitches, as cricket does so pevalently. How to enforce would be the issue though. The frustrating thing was we were on TV and it would've been good to show the country our ability to play the beautiful game, but were denied by the Sunday League setup. southside7

I never said we would have won had it been like the CG
.
However as others have said it did prevent us from playing any sort of football in the centre - so basically took Ferry out the game
.
The match was more suited to Navarro who could have simply sat in there and help Miller (who has improved a lot in this aspect) win the loose balls
.
Rooney was fantastic yesterday as he simply put himself about and won balls up top!
.
That is why we came back into it
.
Williams never wins anything so not surprised there but both Collins (who is normally good at it) and Martin won nothing
.
Don't agree prefer games like this - mic prefer games where teams look to play football which is why watching us at home under PdC has been a pleasure for 90% of the time - only the injury crisis saw us go long
.
As for PdC he will not go Nywhere until the summer
.
If he was quitting he would have done it when Wray left of on Wed/Thurs
.
Why go elsewhere now - window is close and won't have a chance to stamp his mark
.
If he is "just looking for a championship job" he is much better off finishing the season here
.
Go up and his stock rises dramatically - don't go up and it was due to player sales and blokes incomings!
.
As for new owners I personally think they have been as screwed as much as PdC with the sales but are powerless to do anything yet

Crouchy, if the takeover goes through and we make the 3 signings then I think the 2 teams to go up automatically will be swindon and bournemouth ( di Canio or not). Will be watching to see how ritchie gets on, be warned he can have some very average games and shoots endlessly when a simple pass would be better, plus he is only good on decent surfaces and you don't get many of those in this league.
I would hope that mr Di Canio has taken time to read all the posts. If he has he won't be going anywhere. He is obviously well loved by all who go to the county ground. I hope for all of your fans that things get sorted ASAP. It would be great if both teams make the championship next season. And I think we would both hold our own.

All the sad Poxford scum coming on here trying to wind a few up i think they need to worry about their own team that is going nowwhere and something they wouldnt of told you is they have baliffs at their ground last week as they havent paid Kassam his rent for 3 months.

As for the Bournemouth fans coming on here they were cocky with saints fans when they were having a good season and then it blew up in their faces.

One player doesnt make it fall apart of all happen so they need to keep their mouth shut there is a long way to go yet and there will be freak results as all the top sides discovered yesterday and it will happen to all teams.

I still think Tranmere will fade away and cant see Brentford keeping it up either.

Bournemouth will lose a few as well they have some tough games in February.

As for us take draws away and win the home games we will be there or there abouts for automatic i think it has made the players more determined than ever and bear in mind yesterday we were playing on a really crap pitch was a disgrace plus 4 or 5 players had a virus.

PDC to stay until the summer at least and will go out on a high by getting us up to the next league.

As for the Pox fans they will just be a mid table team with Wilder and wont go anywhere. There crowds are going down and the squad is small.

They need to look over their shoulder as trouble is ahead for them and they can get as cocky as they like on here but we all know they are jealous of us always have been as their forum is constantly talking about us its their obsession and jealousy of a superior club.

PDC said enough in his statement so don't expect too much more in the next few days unless its to announce departure although I'd imagine this wont happen until we have the week with no fixtures.
First of all why is it obvious the new people want Paolo out? If true then why? And don't say it's because his salary is too high as I think the gates will drop if Paolo leaves. Everything is conjecture at the moment and if the new people are not allowed their say until ratification by the Football League then maybe it's best to adopt a wait and see policy?

Paolo has unfinished business at Swindon and will want to finish what he started (if possible) because that is the sort of guy he is, and if he resigns from a managers job every time there is board problem etc then he may as well forget about a future in Management, he is a very intelligent man and will realise this.

I think he is now waiting to see if the new people are approved and if so will the 3 players then join us next weekend? If the answer to these 2 questions is yes then why would he leave? He will then try and finish what he started and get us promoted into the Championship...I guess if he achieved that he would have a string of big clubs vying for his signature!

But if the new people are just chancers and they are not approved which means the 3 players will not be joining us...hence almost certain Administration; then he will quit and our season will be over and our long term future will be under severe threat!!! Fingers crossed or a good outcome next week.

Finally...please ignore that Poxford fool MM as some of you are just feeding him what he wants!
Good post Lazz.
Well done Lazz!....STFC2012 talks a lot of tripe at times and seems to think they're speaking on behalf of others...a pompous egotistical viewpoint is how another poster described them...I'm fast coming to the opinion (my own opinion though) that they were factually correct in their description.
----
Actually, being honest I came to agree the moment they posted it but thought I'd just make something up as well.
----
The statement:
"He will bide his time and when the right move is there he will go unless sacked before."
......that applies to every manager in the game doesn't it?....I'll bet a pound that he does decide to leave before he gets sacked....oh and that is Sir Alex I'm talking about....oh hang nope it's errr - well any of them.
....
What tosh!
This is extremely funny. To be accused of talking tripe amidst the foul language and knee jerk reaction that frequents this board. I do not know when I suggested I was a spokesperson for anyone other than myself so I think that is just you. I am giving my opinion on how I see the current situation. I have not presented anything as fact and I do not suggest I am 'in the know'. It seems if you can string 2 coherent sentences together, don't agree with the mouthy frequent posters and have a more dynamic way of thinking other than knee jerk you are in danger of being dubbed 'egotistical' and 'pompous'. I'd rather that than the same old 'heart on your sleeve but not much more' nonsense that is spouted.

And I think you'll find most managers under pressure are sacked before they move on or are forced in to saying it was a mutual agreement. My point is wasted on you. PDC will now be more active and more open to other positions that previously may not have been of interest to him. A big move yes but a sideways move would not have been considered until now. With the board not able to pay him off this is pretty clearly a game of cat and mouse. Make things difficult and force him to resign. He used words such as 'untenable' which he may now well regret as he is still here (for now). While currently making it clear to all and sundry he is ready to 'move on' those clubs potentially interested just need to give Phil a call. You don't accuse a new board of going behind your back if you plan on building a new relationship with them and you don't go behind your manager's back if you are planning to start a relationship with him. It's all politics now and both sides are essentially kissing babies trying to keep the fans on their side. PDC is firmly going to win this race as the others cannot really talk at present. Why else would he release the statement - he could have just had a wait and see policy rather than teasing he may leave to alert other clubs and win the fans over. He could have said ' I did not want to sell Matt Richie and did not sanction the sale'. That would have been enough and said a lot more with fewer words. We know no more from his long statement than we would have with the one above. If anything it has just confused everyone further and prompted the inevitable barrage of questions aimed at him which he now wishes not to answer.

In terms of the new board, I find it hard to believe they will be any where near as wealthy as the last board and even if they did have lots of money they should have learned by the previous example that throwing money around doesn't always give you what you want unless they want a mess like this. It's hard for a board to please fans. Look after the pennies and they are seen as unambitious but in contrast if they throw it around then usually it doesn't benefit the club in the long term. The new board will hopefully look at the income and try and stick within the wage budget and develop from the ground up with sensible salaries for players.

As many of us have pointed out - he's on a no-lose scenario for the season now....why would he jump ship to another club after the transfer window has closed unless he really dislikes the new set-up.....and why would they get rid of the one figure head who has galvanised the whole of STFC.
.
At least he'll get his loans through once the sale is confirmed and then we'll have a squad that can see us through to the end of the season.....barring any disasters for Fodders.

As many of us have pointed out - he's on a no-lose scenario for the season now....why would he jump ship to another club after the transfer window has closed unless he really dislikes the new set-up.....and why would they get rid of the one figure head who has galvanised the whole of STFC. . At least he'll get his loans through once the sale is confirmed and then we'll have a squad that can see us through to the end of the season.....barring any disasters for Fodders. SAPFanSTFC

As I understand it PDC is under contract with the CURRENT owners of STFC which is ultimately Andrew Black.

If Paolo has claimed his position is "UNTENABLE" then surely that only applies whilst the current board is in place.

Once the new owners take up ownership, whoever they are his position would once again become "TENABLE".

Just so you don't get the wrong view Jock.

Yes, survival of the club is paramount and always will be.

No, in this day and age all clubs no matter where their location, should be in the position where they can provide a "decent playing" surface. As said previously by another poster Bury in the Greater Manchester area where they suffer more rainfall than elsewhere in the UK, even Fleetwood last week, can do so then why not others. We are in 2013, and the technology is there. If clubs aspire to the dizzy heights on the top 4 divisions of English football then surely if the stands and so on have to be of a standard then just as importantly so should the pitch.
This is a matter of getting your house in order. Why spend a fortune( pro rata) on players and promotions to get into the league when your pitch is a tip, it doesn't make sense. The result is not only boring football on a sand pit, but also fixture congestion, which really is my main concern. Good clubs try to make the effort, the cowboy element who are not serious about progression it seems don't see it as a priority when it should be. It kills the game and the supporters chances of seeing decent games where players can use their skills, and provide the viewing public with something decent as opposed to something woeful. Its a point of view, but I do think some clubs need to revise their policy on grounds men and the like. Cassidy is brilliant, as are the gang of supporter/volunteers that help him. They are often our twelfth man in providing an excellent surface on which the game is played, and long may they continue to do so.
Some clubs it seems have done little or nothing as they are not prepared to spend the money, cancelled games stops cash flow so how short sighted are they.

PDC said enough in his statement so don't expect too much more in the next few days unless its to announce departure although I'd imagine this wont happen until we have the week with no fixtures.
First of all why is it obvious the new people want Paolo out? If true then why? And don't say it's because his salary is too high as I think the gates will drop if Paolo leaves. Everything is conjecture at the moment and if the new people are not allowed their say until ratification by the Football League then maybe it's best to adopt a wait and see policy?

Paolo has unfinished business at Swindon and will want to finish what he started (if possible) because that is the sort of guy he is, and if he resigns from a managers job every time there is board problem etc then he may as well forget about a future in Management, he is a very intelligent man and will realise this.

I think he is now waiting to see if the new people are approved and if so will the 3 players then join us next weekend? If the answer to these 2 questions is yes then why would he leave? He will then try and finish what he started and get us promoted into the Championship...I guess if he achieved that he would have a string of big clubs vying for his signature!

But if the new people are just chancers and they are not approved which means the 3 players will not be joining us...hence almost certain Administration; then he will quit and our season will be over and our long term future will be under severe threat!!! Fingers crossed or a good outcome next week.

Finally...please ignore that Poxford fool MM as some of you are just feeding him what he wants!
Good post Lazz.
Well done Lazz!....STFC2012 talks a lot of tripe at times and seems to think they're speaking on behalf of others...a pompous egotistical viewpoint is how another poster described them...I'm fast coming to the opinion (my own opinion though) that they were factually correct in their description.
----
Actually, being honest I came to agree the moment they posted it but thought I'd just make something up as well.
----
The statement:
"He will bide his time and when the right move is there he will go unless sacked before."
......that applies to every manager in the game doesn't it?....I'll bet a pound that he does decide to leave before he gets sacked....oh and that is Sir Alex I'm talking about....oh hang nope it's errr - well any of them.
....
What tosh!
This is extremely funny. To be accused of talking tripe amidst the foul language and knee jerk reaction that frequents this board. I do not know when I suggested I was a spokesperson for anyone other than myself so I think that is just you. I am giving my opinion on how I see the current situation. I have not presented anything as fact and I do not suggest I am 'in the know'. It seems if you can string 2 coherent sentences together, don't agree with the mouthy frequent posters and have a more dynamic way of thinking other than knee jerk you are in danger of being dubbed 'egotistical' and 'pompous'. I'd rather that than the same old 'heart on your sleeve but not much more' nonsense that is spouted.

And I think you'll find most managers under pressure are sacked before they move on or are forced in to saying it was a mutual agreement. My point is wasted on you. PDC will now be more active and more open to other positions that previously may not have been of interest to him. A big move yes but a sideways move would not have been considered until now. With the board not able to pay him off this is pretty clearly a game of cat and mouse. Make things difficult and force him to resign. He used words such as 'untenable' which he may now well regret as he is still here (for now). While currently making it clear to all and sundry he is ready to 'move on' those clubs potentially interested just need to give Phil a call. You don't accuse a new board of going behind your back if you plan on building a new relationship with them and you don't go behind your manager's back if you are planning to start a relationship with him. It's all politics now and both sides are essentially kissing babies trying to keep the fans on their side. PDC is firmly going to win this race as the others cannot really talk at present. Why else would he release the statement - he could have just had a wait and see policy rather than teasing he may leave to alert other clubs and win the fans over. He could have said ' I did not want to sell Matt Richie and did not sanction the sale'. That would have been enough and said a lot more with fewer words. We know no more from his long statement than we would have with the one above. If anything it has just confused everyone further and prompted the inevitable barrage of questions aimed at him which he now wishes not to answer.

In terms of the new board, I find it hard to believe they will be any where near as wealthy as the last board and even if they did have lots of money they should have learned by the previous example that throwing money around doesn't always give you what you want unless they want a mess like this. It's hard for a board to please fans. Look after the pennies and they are seen as unambitious but in contrast if they throw it around then usually it doesn't benefit the club in the long term. The new board will hopefully look at the income and try and stick within the wage budget and develop from the ground up with sensible salaries for players.
Have to agree with some of the this. The new board will have to cut some of the losses this club is making each month. I wonder how much PdC is on a month? they might see that as a quick saving. I get the feeling that they will want to balance the books sooner rather than later.

As for the attendances being affected by PdC going, I doubt it. There's nearly 5500 season ticket holders and probably 2000 pay on the days, the majority will be there, The attendances this season are level with our last season in div 1, so PDC has not made any real difference to the gates, and we are having a successful season this time around.

We will find out in the next couple of weeks how this is going to play out, for a start, we will see if the 3 new loanees come in, if they do I have a feeling PdC will stay to the end of the season, if not he will probably walk.

Paolo's contract of employment will be with the company 'Swindon Town FC' or whatever the official company name is and not the owner or owners!

Changing the subject somewhat, I hear that Rooney has improved quite a bit, does anyone see him as a rising star if he is with us next season, after a pre season with us in Italy ?

And before anyone asks the question , yes our manager will be here if treated correctly and with respect by the new owners. I do think both he and Phil Spencer need to sit down with the new guys and be more realistic with budgets etc so we don't all go through this "horibilis" again. thats not a swipe or cheap remark, but we need some tight guidelines that safe guard the club, management and players. Constructive budgets for next season need to be put in place before the end of April at the latest so floundering mid season doesn't happen again.

Cant see Paolo going up north i think he will stay in the south his daughters at Southampton university and he will go to a london club if any if you ask me.

Lets hope this fiasco gets sorted out next week and everyone pulls together the board-fans-players and we got what we deserve and what Paolo and the players deserve after all their hard work promotion to the championship.

Onwards and upwards for all of us.

I truly hope this new lot coming in are honourable people weve had enough dodgy people and mismanagement of our club over the years and we as fans deserve some stability in our club we can keep going along like a yo yo as it seems every 3-5 years something blows up in our faces.
I seriously believe we will get treated like Luton if we ever go into A again who i think had something like 32 points deducted and Leeds were 21 points i think. But we cant think like that as we have to believe the FL will sanction everything this week for the new consortium. My only worry is who they are and are they honourable.
I would imagine they have been looking at all the things written on here but when you have been kept in the dark like us and the way we and the players and manager have been treated what do they expect with some of the comments.
Black has alot to answer for for what he has done in the last few weeks as much as he has backed the club up to then and we should have been made aware alot soooner of what was going on. But the current silence now is eerie to say the least.

I do think both he and Phil Spencer need to sit down with the new guys and be more realistic with budgets etc so we don't all go through this "horibilis" again. thats not a swipe or cheap remark, but we need some tight guidelines that safe guard the club, management and players. Constructive budgets for next season need to be put in place before the end of April at the latest so floundering mid season doesn't happen again.
Decent post Wiz however not you,me or even nostradamus can say that Paolo will leave or stay,the reason being is none of us know the full goings on at the club, of course we can speculate,so the part of your post that says "and if anyone asks the question" and you then go on to answer is a little presumptuous to say the least.

PS bloody cold in the wind yesterday in Crawley,i found myself at times in the first half wishing id stayed at home and watched it on Sky.

Steve, I agree with a lot of what you are saying , but my point is clubs like Crawley are causing fixture congestion, not only for themselves but others. As goes to them being in their second season, agreed, but the FL should now revise their viewpoint and as well as the rest of the ground meeting a set down criteria, so must the pitch. Drainage should be paramount and a preferred standard of soil and sub strata and a certain turf/grass should also be in place. All this fixture congestion does nothing for the cash flow of clubs as postponed games then played on a Tuesday night brings in less revenue and so a viscous circle of funding starts. In this day and age when the weather has always been as it is in this country and now with the global warming issues and changing weather patterns absolutely highlight the reason as to why things need to be put in place before the problem gets worse which it will. I'm not having a "pop at Crawley" or any other club, but remember Stockport and few seasons back when the mud pile caused the game to be cancelled just before kick-off after the traveling supporters, us, had arrived. Yes I know they ground share with a rugby league side, so even greater reason for finite pitch care.
We are in 2013 and its time some clubs woke up and did something constructive for the greater good. They spend of players willingly, how about spending on the pitch to realise the best from those players.

I don't think anyone can argue that the pitch was awful, but can we consider Crawley's position here.

If it were at any other time, they probably would have postponed it as the conditions didn't exactly favour them either.

Add to that the Sky billing and their three weeks lay off and they had a lot to lose.

Plus, as I recall last year when we played on wet pitches following snow, it affected ours for the league run in.

If Paolo has claimed his position is "UNTENABLE" then surely that only applies whilst the current board is in place.

Paolo's contract of employment will be with the company 'Swindon Town FC' or whatever the official company name is and not the owner or owners! There is a legal difference (LR as an accountant should back me up un this) or else all the employees including players would be free agents and be out of contracts...which isn't the case!
I understand that there would be a legal difference between STFC and A Black (Not sure why you need to have back up from LR on this?).

I'm not trying to make a legal point but rather how Paolo would view his position, tenable or not, once the new regime is in place.

I'm quite sure that nobody really gives a stuff who "owns" STFC providing it is on a sound financial footing and is looking to move forward in its development both on and off the pitch.

That sentiment will apply to PDC.

So once the new owners are installed and the necessary discussions have taken place, if Paolo is happy with what he is being told then his position will once again become tenable.

Quite simple really.

Steve, I was trying to be positive and look forward in a positive light. If budgets are set in plenty of time, we can start to adjust our outgoings especially on wages for new additions before we recruit them. I know LR will have a view on budgets and income etc but we cannot go on like this. If our new owners are able to do a cash injection as was suggested of around £3M then fine, but that too will run out at some point if things aren't sorted soon. I want this club to be successful and I want us to retain our manager, even if he is as crazy as a box of frogs, at least we know that. I'm quite prepared to put up with him berating players if that is what it takes. He is his own man and not a puppet like others.

Lots of ifs and buts i know but if it was the new board that sanctioned the three loans then cost cutting can't be that much of a priority for them. BWP was on an alleged £10k per week and we would have to pay at least half of that.

That is of course if thy sanctioned them.

If Paolo has claimed his position is "UNTENABLE" then surely that only applies whilst the current board is in place.

Paolo's contract of employment will be with the company 'Swindon Town FC' or whatever the official company name is and not the owner or owners! There is a legal difference (LR as an accountant should back me up un this) or else all the employees including players would be free agents and be out of contracts...which isn't the case!
I understand that there would be a legal difference between STFC and A Black (Not sure why you need to have back up from LR on this?).

I'm not trying to make a legal point but rather how Paolo would view his position, tenable or not, once the new regime is in place.

I'm quite sure that nobody really gives a stuff who "owns" STFC providing it is on a sound financial footing and is looking to move forward in its development both on and off the pitch.

That sentiment will apply to PDC.

So once the new owners are installed and the necessary discussions have taken place, if Paolo is happy with what he is being told then his position will once again become tenable.

Quite simple really.
Your original post implied to me that you were unsure if Paolos contract was with Andrew Black or the club, hence my answer...and your quite right I don't need LRs back up as I know as a fellow accountant that I am right in this! No doubt you will come back with another sarcastic reply to this and all because I was genuinely trying to answer your original question.

How about you set up a page or section of the posting site where we can 'message' Paolo to tell him how we need him to stay, etc?

We can't contact him personally but thru the media we can convince him that we, STFC fans want him at the helm!!

I'm not trying to make a legal point but rather how Paolo would view his position, tenable or not, once the new regime is in place.

I'm quite sure that nobody really gives a stuff who "owns" STFC providing it is on a sound financial footing and is looking to move forward in its development both on and off the pitch.

So once the new owners are installed and the necessary discussions have taken place, if Paolo is happy with what he is being told then his position will once again become tenable.

Firstly, there is no sarcasm intended or implied so there is no need to get quite so upset.

It is a legitimate question to ask you why you feel the need to have a point you have made endorsed by a third party if I have not questioned your reply.

You have quite rightly tried to make the point that STFC is not AB, and that AB is not STFC.

My ONLY point in my original posting was to give my view on how I think PDC will be viewing his current position and how it may or may not change once the new regime is in place.

Hello Laz, i went yesterday and got a chance to chat with one of our players who started on the bench,i actually asked the lad if the players read thisis comments pages and with a big smile on his face he said "yes it gets mentioned from time to time" i also asked his views on whats going on at the club and he happily said " it should be all sorted out next week".I am convinced that at times one or two may post to put the record straight.

Also...the new people will not be ratified by the Football league so we will go into Administration and promptly be docked 30 points as this is 3rd time and all our players will be either sold or loaned out, so the youth team will play out remaining fixtures this season so we will be relegated back to where we belong to 2nd division!!! During the close season we will cease to operate as a football club because we will be unable to full fill our fixtures next season...so the local councel will pull down our ground and build houses on the land...and all us broken hearted Swindon supporters will switch our allegiance to Oxford United and start supporting them next season :)

During the close season we will cease to operate as a football club because we will be unable to full fill our fixtures next season...so the local councel will pull down our ground and build houses on the land...and all us broken hearted Swindon supporters will switch our allegiance to Oxford United and start supporting them next season :)
Now go away wishy-washy and leave us to our grief!!!!!!!

Hey Sam or Adver,

How about you set up a page or section of the posting site where we can 'message' Paolo to tell him how we need him to stay, etc?

We can't contact him personally but thru the media we can convince him that we, STFC fans want him at the helm!!
I would be surprised if Paolo and the players don't read these posts; in fact I bet some of the players even post on here occasionally?
Hello Laz, i went yesterday and got a chance to chat with one of our players who started on the bench,i actually asked the lad if the players read thisis comments pages and with a big smile on his face he said "yes it gets mentioned from time to time" i also asked his views on whats going on at the club and he happily said " it should be all sorted out next week".I am convinced that at times one or two may post to put the record straight.
Hi Steve, I have always thought the manager and players read these posts to gauge the current mood of the Town fans, I'm sure this board is a good barometer of the general feeling of the fans? So the question is, which posters are really Town players? I will kick of Steve with guessing you are really Aiden Flint??? LOL

Italy just given the French a surprise in the oval ball game, should make a certain manager in Swindon very happy, and why not. Anybody who beats the French in any sport gets my vote. Well done to FIA Italia.

Decent post Wiz however not you,me or even nostradamus can say that Paolo will leave or stay,the reason being is none of us know the full goings on at the club, of course we can speculate,so the part of your post that says "and if anyone asks the question" and you then go on to answer is a little presumptuous to say the least.

PS bloody cold in the wind yesterday in Crawley,i found myself at times in the first half wishing id stayed at home and watched it on Sky.
Bloody Cold Steve?thought you were a tough Builder?you should be there with your short sleeved Town shirt on!LOL!!!!!
Haha these days Don i tend to get others to do the work for me apart from driving or meeting clients and quoting i seem to be sat in my office (with the central heating on) guess i'm getting old :O) even the die hard angler in me tends to find more reasons why not to go when its freezing cold.Do they sell STFC long johns preferably with a carp on them in the shop at the CG...
Got a pair on myself steve but the carp is at the back.

Wiz,

I always judge a player on what I have seen at the CG and have felt for a while that he has been not been given a chance (Caddis factor). He has a decent strike ration (4 in what works out to be 6 1/2 matches), won the penalty, scored it and was bl00dy close to winning it for us, that was a class header yesterday.

I would like to see more but I thought he did a very decent job for us yesterday. It was also good to hear the "Rooney, Rooney" chant form the Town fans, so much better than moans.

We are currently down to bare bones, only 6 subs, so every player is valuable and needs to be encouraged.

Nice to have a quiet day.

Thought Paolo was excellent in front of the cameras yesterday, despite Sky Sports trying their best to goad him into revealing he was resigning. Thought Wilson was fair in his comments too after their well documented issues. Pitch was poor but we encounter them every year, so need a plan B (go direct, big target man, rest Ferry). Adam Rooney looked good I thought, he deseres a start on Tuesday. Wlliams, Martin and Collins have now had a couple of poor games, so with BWP possibly in, you never know Adam Rooney could have his chance, particularly away from home.

Clearly Paolo's decision all hinges on the FL approval, and if he can get the 3 players in on loan. Lets hope we hear by Tuesday.

WIll be interested in Black's version of events, from his tweets it sounds like he is taking all the stick and a lot of abuse, but has a side to the stary which he will be revealing after the takeover is complete. That will be worth hearing. Presumably this will involve justifying his decision to sell in a panic, and may have something to say about Paolo or the existing board.

As for players reading this board, I hope they do. It's very simple - play well, get stuck in, win the game and enjoy the praise.

Decent post Wiz however not you,me or even nostradamus can say that Paolo will leave or stay,the reason being is none of us know the full goings on at the club, of course we can speculate,so the part of your post that says "and if anyone asks the question" and you then go on to answer is a little presumptuous to say the least. PS bloody cold in the wind yesterday in Crawley,i found myself at times in the first half wishing id stayed at home and watched it on Sky.

Dark horses for a top 2 spot Yeovil. I still think we will win the league with average of 2 points per game, draw away and win at home. A win on Tuesday would put us in a good position to be top of the league by end of February.

It's time for the players to really stand up and be counted, to play for the badge and their own pride whatever happens next week.

If we get the loan players in next week no one will stop us, even without them I think we have a strong enough squad

For a top 2 finish.

As for Saturday I thought Flint was outstanding and although some had a go at him, Roberts had a decent 2nd half. The plus point was Rooneys performance coming off the bench, looks better than Martin and looks likely to poach a goal.

Next 2 games 6 points and we will be on course

Obviously you haven't been to bournemouth for a long time. And I haven't had the pleasure of going to Swindon for about 20 years. I used to enjoy the banter with the staff at the shell station by the ground. I used to deliver there every day. I really do hope we both get promoted. Good luck with your new board.
I said back at the beginning of November the top 2 would be muff and swindon if we come out of this in tact then I think it will be still be the same
Dark horses for a top 2 spot Yeovil. I still think we will win the league with average of 2 points per game, draw away and win at home. A win on Tuesday would put us in a good position to be top of the league by end of February.

It's time for the players to really stand up and be counted, to play for the badge and their own pride whatever happens next week.

If we get the loan players in next week no one will stop us, even without them I think we have a strong enough squad

For a top 2 finish.

As for Saturday I thought Flint was outstanding and although some had a go at him, Roberts had a decent 2nd half. The plus point was Rooneys performance coming off the bench, looks better than Martin and looks likely to poach a goal.

Next 2 games 6 points and we will be on course
Good shout on Yeovil, although I can't see them getting into the Top 2.
...
Amazing how all the results went our way yesterday:
.
Tranmere - looking like they're running out of steam and possibly even self-belief
.
Doncaster - still surprised at their form but they could be the biggest challenge but be interesting to see how they get on after a few bad results
.
Bournemouth - the most respected of the other sides (and manager) at the top and I'd suggest are our main title contenders
.
Swindon - PDC express keeps getting hit by bad coal but I think we'll see full steam again very shortly - can't wait until Tuesday as hoping to get there for this one
.
Brentford - just get the impression they are starting to struggle with fixture build up and getting distracted by their F.A. Cup heroics
.
Sheff Utd - Be interesting to see if Wilson can turn this dip in form around - I very much doubt it having lost their top scorer
.
MK Dons - Won't handle the fixture pile up, tough February: 4 away league games and a winnable F.A. Cup 5th Rd tie.
Coventry and Walsall may sneak into the play-offs but have played a lot of games to date....would bet on Yeovil above these two.

First of all why is it obvious the new people want Paolo out? If true then why? And don't say it's because his salary is too high as I think the gates will drop if Paolo leaves. Everything is conjecture at the moment and if the new people are not allowed their say until ratification by the Football League then maybe it's best to adopt a wait and see policy?

Paolo has unfinished business at Swindon and will want to finish what he started (if possible) because that is the sort of guy he is, and if he resigns from a managers job every time there is board problem etc then he may as well forget about a future in Management, he is a very intelligent man and will realise this.

I think he is now waiting to see if the new people are approved and if so will the 3 players then join us next weekend? If the answer to these 2 questions is yes then why would he leave? He will then try and finish what he started and get us promoted into the Championship...I guess if he achieved that he would have a string of big clubs vying for his signature!

But if the new people are just chancers and they are not approved which means the 3 players will not be joining us...hence almost certain Administration; then he will quit and our season will be over and our long term future will be under severe threat!!! Fingers crossed or a good outcome next week.

Finally...please ignore that Poxford fool MM as some of you are just feeding him what he wants!
Good post Lazz.
Well done Lazz!....STFC2012 talks a lot of tripe at times and seems to think they're speaking on behalf of others...a pompous egotistical viewpoint is how another poster described them...I'm fast coming to the opinion (my own opinion though) that they were factually correct in their description.
----
Actually, being honest I came to agree the moment they posted it but thought I'd just make something up as well.
----
The statement:
"He will bide his time and when the right move is there he will go unless sacked before."
......that applies to every manager in the game doesn't it?....I'll bet a pound that he does decide to leave before he gets sacked....oh and that is Sir Alex I'm talking about....oh hang nope it's errr - well any of them.
....
What tosh!
This is extremely funny. To be accused of talking tripe amidst the foul language and knee jerk reaction that frequents this board. I do not know when I suggested I was a spokesperson for anyone other than myself so I think that is just you. I am giving my opinion on how I see the current situation. I have not presented anything as fact and I do not suggest I am 'in the know'. It seems if you can string 2 coherent sentences together, don't agree with the mouthy frequent posters and have a more dynamic way of thinking other than knee jerk you are in danger of being dubbed 'egotistical' and 'pompous'. I'd rather that than the same old 'heart on your sleeve but not much more' nonsense that is spouted.

And I think you'll find most managers under pressure are sacked before they move on or are forced in to saying it was a mutual agreement. My point is wasted on you. PDC will now be more active and more open to other positions that previously may not have been of interest to him. A big move yes but a sideways move would not have been considered until now. With the board not able to pay him off this is pretty clearly a game of cat and mouse. Make things difficult and force him to resign. He used words such as 'untenable' which he may now well regret as he is still here (for now). While currently making it clear to all and sundry he is ready to 'move on' those clubs potentially interested just need to give Phil a call. You don't accuse a new board of going behind your back if you plan on building a new relationship with them and you don't go behind your manager's back if you are planning to start a relationship with him. It's all politics now and both sides are essentially kissing babies trying to keep the fans on their side. PDC is firmly going to win this race as the others cannot really talk at present. Why else would he release the statement - he could have just had a wait and see policy rather than teasing he may leave to alert other clubs and win the fans over. He could have said ' I did not want to sell Matt Richie and did not sanction the sale'. That would have been enough and said a lot more with fewer words. We know no more from his long statement than we would have with the one above. If anything it has just confused everyone further and prompted the inevitable barrage of questions aimed at him which he now wishes not to answer.

In terms of the new board, I find it hard to believe they will be any where near as wealthy as the last board and even if they did have lots of money they should have learned by the previous example that throwing money around doesn't always give you what you want unless they want a mess like this. It's hard for a board to please fans. Look after the pennies and they are seen as unambitious but in contrast if they throw it around then usually it doesn't benefit the club in the long term. The new board will hopefully look at the income and try and stick within the wage budget and develop from the ground up with sensible salaries for players.
Certainly is extremely funny especially -> STFC2012 talks a lot of tripe at times and seems to think they're speaking on behalf of others...a pompous egotistical viewpoint is how another poster described them...

the phrases "mirror mirror on the wall & pot kettle and black" spring to mind and provide an excellent self analysis of your critic -its so uncanny and very self descriptive lol!

Also hypocrisy is sometimes rife on here and Lydiard makes an excellent point ala "Wizards tone changed (or what Den has called bitterness if you like) when the Di Canio debates were going on weeks ago." Totally agree and I did ask Wiz then why he had such a downer on Pdc -or Canioman or our manager as Wiz likes to call him lol! I believe one of his gripes was that he didn't like Paolo bawling out players in public and yet today we read on this very forum from Wizard - " I'm quite prepared to put up with him berating players if that is what it takes. Now if that isnt pot kettle and black I don't know what is.

BIG shame other clubs don't share that view or passion. Orient and Crawley, both would be big time Charlie clubs yet they haven't got a good pitch unless its August or September, even then its down to luck.
Perhaps the vacillaters from the FL should be looking into the standard of pitches and grounds as opposed to dragging their feet over our change of ownership. Ahsoles.
Wiz,
very good post, I can't think for the life of me why oi den has chosen to have a go at you for stating the obvious, there has been 3 of our games postponed away from home because none of them are capable of maintaining the state of their pitch, (I would also add it may be a coincidence, but all had injuries or players band which may have just made it easier for them not play their games).in my opinion they would never be able to participate at a higher level, regardless of how good their teams are today, the grounds are a disgrace, more the reason why we need to get out of this dreadful league.

By the way Den, I know you and LR usually like to have the last word and most times I don't have a problem with that because I do respect both your opinions. On this occassion with you I think you are totally out of order with your negative comments to Wiz, he has made a very valid point and I am totally in agreement with Wiz and very disappointed to read such negative views from you.

I think you owe him a big apology, because nothing you have said makes sense other than reasons you only know why have a go at a very valid point raised by a respected poster. Doh!
OTR, I will explain why I do not believe I owe Wiz any apology.
.
You say I made negative comments in response to a valid points raised by Wiz. On the contrary, Wiz has made several derogatory (i.e negative) comments recently about other football clubs and the Football League, and I was trying to point out that, far from having any basis in fact, that they were simply the result of his undoubted passion for STFC.
.
Some of the difference between Wiz and me is simply a matter of opinion. He thinks the state of the pitch at Crawley was a big deal. I don't. I (like Wiz, I think) wasn't there, so I can't really say much about its condition. From the TV pictures, there certainly seemed to be a few bobbles, but the pitch didn't prevent Crawley producing a fast break from the back - all along the ground - in the first decent move of the game, from which they eventually scored. Nor did it stop De Vita and McCormack from linking brilliantly with some superb footwork to give Williams (I think) the headed chance that brought a fantastic save out of the Crawley keeper.
.
To be quite honest, I think both teams used the pitch as an excuse for what was essentially a poor game of football. I don't think either side actually tried to play much, which brings me on to another point: this myth that we are a wonderful footballing side who suffer more than most on a difficult surface. We are now a strong physical outfit who can look after ourselves and cope well with any pitch and conditions. We do not play a wonderful passing game. PDC publicly abandoned that earlier in the season when he said we would now "be playing a more direct game by knocking balls into the channels. For a few weeks after that, the football we played was some of the worst I have seen from a Town team. Thankfully, that extreme seems to have passed and we now mix it up a lot more. So that's the opinion based difference.
.
The rest of Wiz's argument - and I know it's not just him - is an insult to our fellow clubs. I believe it is a terrible slur to accuse clubs of cheating by manipulating their fixture lists, or of being unconcerned about the state of their pitches. How would we feel if we were accused of cheating? I think we know the answer to that, as it happened only last week. We were outraged. How would we feel if we had gone to the trouble of printing programmes, organising staff resources, ordering in food etc, only to find that our efforts had been thwarted by the weather - and then having salt rubbed into the wounds by being told that we didn't really want to play anyway and had cheated our way to getting the game postponed? It seems that our rivals are cheats if their pitch is unplayable and the game is postponed, and if they do manage to get a doubtful game played they are either cheats or incompetents because their pitch is not up to scratch.
.
Our game is wonderful because it is at the mercy of many unpredictable elements. Let's abandon the search for perfect pitches, perfect referees and perfectly sanitised stadia, and enjoy the marvellous unpredictability of our fantastic winter game - or watch the Premier League on television.

Nor did it stop De Vita and McCormack from linking brilliantly with some superb footwork to give Williams (I think) the headed chance that brought a fantastic save out of the Crawley keeper. . To be quite honest, I think both teams used the pitch as an excuse for what was essentially a poor game of football. I don't think either side actually tried to play much, which brings me on to another point: this myth that we are a wonderful footballing side who suffer more than most on a difficult surface. We are now a strong physical outfit who can look after ourselves and cope well with any pitch and conditions. We do not play a wonderful passing game. PDC publicly abandoned that earlier in the season when he said we would now "be playing a more direct game by knocking balls into the channels. For a few weeks after that, the football we played was some of the worst I have seen from a Town team. Thankfully, that extreme seems to have passed and we now mix it up a lot more. So that's the opinion based difference. . The rest of Wiz's argument - and I know it's not just him - is an insult to our fellow clubs. I believe it is a terrible slur to accuse clubs of cheating by manipulating their fixture lists, or of being unconcerned about the state of their pitches. How would we feel if we were accused of cheating? I think we know the answer to that, as it happened only last week. We were outraged. How would we feel if we had gone to the trouble of printing programmes, organising staff resources, ordering in food etc, only to find that our efforts had been thwarted by the weather - and then having salt rubbed into the wounds by being told that we didn't really want to play anyway and had cheated our way to getting the game postponed? It seems that our rivals are cheats if their pitch is unplayable and the game is postponed, and if they do manage to get a doubtful game played they are either cheats or incompetents because their pitch is not up to scratch. . Our game is wonderful because it is at the mercy of many unpredictable elements. Let's abandon the search for perfect pitches, perfect referees and perfectly sanitised stadia, and enjoy the marvellous unpredictability of our fantastic winter game - or watch the Premier League on television. Oi Den!

First of all why is it obvious the new people want Paolo out? If true then why? And don't say it's because his salary is too high as I think the gates will drop if Paolo leaves. Everything is conjecture at the moment and if the new people are not allowed their say until ratification by the Football League then maybe it's best to adopt a wait and see policy?

Paolo has unfinished business at Swindon and will want to finish what he started (if possible) because that is the sort of guy he is, and if he resigns from a managers job every time there is board problem etc then he may as well forget about a future in Management, he is a very intelligent man and will realise this.

I think he is now waiting to see if the new people are approved and if so will the 3 players then join us next weekend? If the answer to these 2 questions is yes then why would he leave? He will then try and finish what he started and get us promoted into the Championship...I guess if he achieved that he would have a string of big clubs vying for his signature!

But if the new people are just chancers and they are not approved which means the 3 players will not be joining us...hence almost certain Administration; then he will quit and our season will be over and our long term future will be under severe threat!!! Fingers crossed or a good outcome next week.

Finally...please ignore that Poxford fool MM as some of you are just feeding him what he wants!
Good post Lazz.
Well done Lazz!....STFC2012 talks a lot of tripe at times and seems to think they're speaking on behalf of others...a pompous egotistical viewpoint is how another poster described them...I'm fast coming to the opinion (my own opinion though) that they were factually correct in their description.
----
Actually, being honest I came to agree the moment they posted it but thought I'd just make something up as well.
----
The statement:
"He will bide his time and when the right move is there he will go unless sacked before."
......that applies to every manager in the game doesn't it?....I'll bet a pound that he does decide to leave before he gets sacked....oh and that is Sir Alex I'm talking about....oh hang nope it's errr - well any of them.
....
What tosh!
This is extremely funny. To be accused of talking tripe amidst the foul language and knee jerk reaction that frequents this board. I do not know when I suggested I was a spokesperson for anyone other than myself so I think that is just you. I am giving my opinion on how I see the current situation. I have not presented anything as fact and I do not suggest I am 'in the know'. It seems if you can string 2 coherent sentences together, don't agree with the mouthy frequent posters and have a more dynamic way of thinking other than knee jerk you are in danger of being dubbed 'egotistical' and 'pompous'. I'd rather that than the same old 'heart on your sleeve but not much more' nonsense that is spouted.

And I think you'll find most managers under pressure are sacked before they move on or are forced in to saying it was a mutual agreement. My point is wasted on you. PDC will now be more active and more open to other positions that previously may not have been of interest to him. A big move yes but a sideways move would not have been considered until now. With the board not able to pay him off this is pretty clearly a game of cat and mouse. Make things difficult and force him to resign. He used words such as 'untenable' which he may now well regret as he is still here (for now). While currently making it clear to all and sundry he is ready to 'move on' those clubs potentially interested just need to give Phil a call. You don't accuse a new board of going behind your back if you plan on building a new relationship with them and you don't go behind your manager's back if you are planning to start a relationship with him. It's all politics now and both sides are essentially kissing babies trying to keep the fans on their side. PDC is firmly going to win this race as the others cannot really talk at present. Why else would he release the statement - he could have just had a wait and see policy rather than teasing he may leave to alert other clubs and win the fans over. He could have said ' I did not want to sell Matt Richie and did not sanction the sale'. That would have been enough and said a lot more with fewer words. We know no more from his long statement than we would have with the one above. If anything it has just confused everyone further and prompted the inevitable barrage of questions aimed at him which he now wishes not to answer.

In terms of the new board, I find it hard to believe they will be any where near as wealthy as the last board and even if they did have lots of money they should have learned by the previous example that throwing money around doesn't always give you what you want unless they want a mess like this. It's hard for a board to please fans. Look after the pennies and they are seen as unambitious but in contrast if they throw it around then usually it doesn't benefit the club in the long term. The new board will hopefully look at the income and try and stick within the wage budget and develop from the ground up with sensible salaries for players.
Certainly is extremely funny especially -> STFC2012 talks a lot of tripe at times and seems to think they're speaking on behalf of others...a pompous egotistical viewpoint is how another poster described them...

the phrases "mirror mirror on the wall & pot kettle and black" spring to mind and provide an excellent self analysis of your critic -its so uncanny and very self descriptive lol!

Also hypocrisy is sometimes rife on here and Lydiard makes an excellent point ala "Wizards tone changed (or what Den has called bitterness if you like) when the Di Canio debates were going on weeks ago." Totally agree and I did ask Wiz then why he had such a downer on Pdc -or Canioman or our manager as Wiz likes to call him lol! I believe one of his gripes was that he didn't like Paolo bawling out players in public and yet today we read on this very forum from Wizard - " I'm quite prepared to put up with him berating players if that is what it takes. Now if that isnt pot kettle and black I don't know what is.
Jock,
You bring this up more times than the pendulum swings in a year. I have always said that I don't agree with the public berating of players. Lets get that straight, I have never denied that, BUT MANY OTHERS HAVE SAID THE SAME, so go pick on a few of those as well eh? lets see you start poping at them as well.
A complete NO, I have never said that I want him to go either, and if tollerating him doing his name/shame/blame thing is key to him staying then I have no problem with that, as you would never ever let that go, would you. You would love to blame somebody for that, but how about shifting the focus to your continuous downer on both Williams and Collins, "the WC two/the WC pair" as you have called them, and the fact you wanted them flushed out of the club, but you stand and applaud their goals, hypocrite ?????

Den, You have your opinion on this and I have mine, no apologies needed. I haven't deliberately set out to cross swords with you, but I still think some clubs, not all, could do a lot more. The fact that they haven't leaves them open. It is however strange that L.O got our match postponed, it continued to rain and the next game was on, but their injured players were back. call it speculation, co-incidence or act of God. That said L.O have been in the league for years and as such it should be expected for them to be able to deal with this sort of situation.
They know how their pitch reacts to rainfall, their problem, they should deal with it.
I find it strange that in this day and age of regulation there seems to be little legislation by the FL to ensure that pitches are adequately drained etc. Snow I can sympathise with as it is so random, but our main man showed what can be done if you ask for help. Oxford did nothing, match postponed, it reflects ambition and desire of the people trying to drive the club forwards, and supporters will help.
I'm not on a one man crusade or anything like that, but I am frankly amazed some clubs do so little while others do a lot. I received both sides of the argument here, but I think some can see that I am trying to be constructive and asking why ???? some clubs are not doing more and they should be. Its Sunday, its late, but its been a healthy debate. lets just hope this week sees a new dawn for our club, and our progress continues, and I hope something comes up that we can mutually agree on and laugh over. Cheers.

It seems that other clubs love to dish out ridicule towards us, BUT, how many come here and play on a mud pool. They don't. Our pitch is well maintained, well drained and treated well by ground staff who probably put the pitch as a big first in their life. Even after the snow, it was such a perfect surface. Wilson and our manager now have both stated how important the playing surface is and conjusive it is for playing good football.

BIG shame other clubs don't share that view or passion. Orient and Crawley, both would be big time Charlie clubs yet they haven't got a good pitch unless its August or September, even then its down to luck.
Perhaps the vacillaters from the FL should be looking into the standard of pitches and grounds as opposed to dragging their feet over our change of ownership. Ahsoles.
Wiz,
very good post, I can't think for the life of me why oi den has chosen to have a go at you for stating the obvious, there has been 3 of our games postponed away from home because none of them are capable of maintaining the state of their pitch, (I would also add it may be a coincidence, but all had injuries or players band which may have just made it easier for them not play their games).in my opinion they would never be able to participate at a higher level, regardless of how good their teams are today, the grounds are a disgrace, more the reason why we need to get out of this dreadful league.

By the way Den, I know you and LR usually like to have the last word and most times I don't have a problem with that because I do respect both your opinions. On this occassion with you I think you are totally out of order with your negative comments to Wiz, he has made a very valid point and I am totally in agreement with Wiz and very disappointed to read such negative views from you.

I think you owe him a big apology, because nothing you have said makes sense other than reasons you only know why have a go at a very valid point raised by a respected poster. Doh!
OTR, I will explain why I do not believe I owe Wiz any apology.
.
You say I made negative comments in response to a valid points raised by Wiz. On the contrary, Wiz has made several derogatory (i.e negative) comments recently about other football clubs and the Football League, and I was trying to point out that, far from having any basis in fact, that they were simply the result of his undoubted passion for STFC.
.
Some of the difference between Wiz and me is simply a matter of opinion. He thinks the state of the pitch at Crawley was a big deal. I don't. I (like Wiz, I think) wasn't there, so I can't really say much about its condition. From the TV pictures, there certainly seemed to be a few bobbles, but the pitch didn't prevent Crawley producing a fast break from the back - all along the ground - in the first decent move of the game, from which they eventually scored. Nor did it stop De Vita and McCormack from linking brilliantly with some superb footwork to give Williams (I think) the headed chance that brought a fantastic save out of the Crawley keeper.
.

The rest of Wiz's argument - and I know it's not just him - is an insult to our fellow clubs.

How would we feel if we were accused of cheating? I think we know the answer to that, as it happened only last week. We were outraged. How would we feel if we had gone to the trouble of printing programmes, organising staff resources, ordering in food etc, only to find that our efforts had been thwarted by the weather - and then having salt rubbed into the wounds by being told that we didn't really want to play anyway and had cheated our way to getting the game postponed? It seems that our rivals are cheats if their pitch is unplayable and the game is postponed, and if they do manage to get a doubtful game played they are either cheats or incompetents because their pitch is not up to scratch.

Our game is wonderful because it is at the mercy of many unpredictable elements. Let's abandon the search for perfect pitches, perfect referees and perfectly sanitised stadia, and enjoy the marvellous unpredictability of our fantastic winter game - or watch the Premier League on television.
Oi Den, I think you need to calm down a little bit. I agreed earlier with you regarding wizards posts and his change in view however i have noticed you have become a bit liberal lately.

Bring back the old Oi Den........

First of all why is it obvious the new people want Paolo out? If true then why? And don't say it's because his salary is too high as I think the gates will drop if Paolo leaves. Everything is conjecture at the moment and if the new people are not allowed their say until ratification by the Football League then maybe it's best to adopt a wait and see policy?

Paolo has unfinished business at Swindon and will want to finish what he started (if possible) because that is the sort of guy he is, and if he resigns from a managers job every time there is board problem etc then he may as well forget about a future in Management, he is a very intelligent man and will realise this.

I think he is now waiting to see if the new people are approved and if so will the 3 players then join us next weekend? If the answer to these 2 questions is yes then why would he leave? He will then try and finish what he started and get us promoted into the Championship...I guess if he achieved that he would have a string of big clubs vying for his signature!

But if the new people are just chancers and they are not approved which means the 3 players will not be joining us...hence almost certain Administration; then he will quit and our season will be over and our long term future will be under severe threat!!! Fingers crossed or a good outcome next week.

Finally...please ignore that Poxford fool MM as some of you are just feeding him what he wants!
Good post Lazz.
Well done Lazz!....STFC2012 talks a lot of tripe at times and seems to think they're speaking on behalf of others...a pompous egotistical viewpoint is how another poster described them...I'm fast coming to the opinion (my own opinion though) that they were factually correct in their description.
----
Actually, being honest I came to agree the moment they posted it but thought I'd just make something up as well.
----
The statement:
"He will bide his time and when the right move is there he will go unless sacked before."
......that applies to every manager in the game doesn't it?....I'll bet a pound that he does decide to leave before he gets sacked....oh and that is Sir Alex I'm talking about....oh hang nope it's errr - well any of them.
....
What tosh!
This is extremely funny. To be accused of talking tripe amidst the foul language and knee jerk reaction that frequents this board. I do not know when I suggested I was a spokesperson for anyone other than myself so I think that is just you. I am giving my opinion on how I see the current situation. I have not presented anything as fact and I do not suggest I am 'in the know'. It seems if you can string 2 coherent sentences together, don't agree with the mouthy frequent posters and have a more dynamic way of thinking other than knee jerk you are in danger of being dubbed 'egotistical' and 'pompous'. I'd rather that than the same old 'heart on your sleeve but not much more' nonsense that is spouted.

And I think you'll find most managers under pressure are sacked before they move on or are forced in to saying it was a mutual agreement. My point is wasted on you. PDC will now be more active and more open to other positions that previously may not have been of interest to him. A big move yes but a sideways move would not have been considered until now. With the board not able to pay him off this is pretty clearly a game of cat and mouse. Make things difficult and force him to resign. He used words such as 'untenable' which he may now well regret as he is still here (for now). While currently making it clear to all and sundry he is ready to 'move on' those clubs potentially interested just need to give Phil a call. You don't accuse a new board of going behind your back if you plan on building a new relationship with them and you don't go behind your manager's back if you are planning to start a relationship with him. It's all politics now and both sides are essentially kissing babies trying to keep the fans on their side. PDC is firmly going to win this race as the others cannot really talk at present. Why else would he release the statement - he could have just had a wait and see policy rather than teasing he may leave to alert other clubs and win the fans over. He could have said ' I did not want to sell Matt Richie and did not sanction the sale'. That would have been enough and said a lot more with fewer words. We know no more from his long statement than we would have with the one above. If anything it has just confused everyone further and prompted the inevitable barrage of questions aimed at him which he now wishes not to answer.

In terms of the new board, I find it hard to believe they will be any where near as wealthy as the last board and even if they did have lots of money they should have learned by the previous example that throwing money around doesn't always give you what you want unless they want a mess like this. It's hard for a board to please fans. Look after the pennies and they are seen as unambitious but in contrast if they throw it around then usually it doesn't benefit the club in the long term. The new board will hopefully look at the income and try and stick within the wage budget and develop from the ground up with sensible salaries for players.
Certainly is extremely funny especially -> STFC2012 talks a lot of tripe at times and seems to think they're speaking on behalf of others...a pompous egotistical viewpoint is how another poster described them...

the phrases "mirror mirror on the wall & pot kettle and black" spring to mind and provide an excellent self analysis of your critic -its so uncanny and very self descriptive lol!

Also hypocrisy is sometimes rife on here and Lydiard makes an excellent point ala "Wizards tone changed (or what Den has called bitterness if you like) when the Di Canio debates were going on weeks ago." Totally agree and I did ask Wiz then why he had such a downer on Pdc -or Canioman or our manager as Wiz likes to call him lol! I believe one of his gripes was that he didn't like Paolo bawling out players in public and yet today we read on this very forum from Wizard - " I'm quite prepared to put up with him berating players if that is what it takes. Now if that isnt pot kettle and black I don't know what is.
Jock,
You bring this up more times than the pendulum swings in a year. I have always said that I don't agree with the public berating of players. Lets get that straight, I have never denied that, BUT MANY OTHERS HAVE SAID THE SAME, so go pick on a few of those as well eh? lets see you start poping at them as well.
A complete NO, I have never said that I want him to go either, and if tollerating him doing his name/shame/blame thing is key to him staying then I have no problem with that, as you would never ever let that go, would you. You would love to blame somebody for that, but how about shifting the focus to your continuous downer on both Williams and Collins, "the WC two/the WC pair" as you have called them, and the fact you wanted them flushed out of the club, but you stand and applaud their goals, hypocrite ?????
Guilty as charged re the bog roll two!! :) Just to be consistent and non-hypocritical they were both cr@p against Crawley weren't they? AND OTHERS HAVE SAID THE SAME :)
They made A Rooney look like W Rooney when he came on.There you go Wiz anybody can twist words to suit - so how do you explain that its not only me who appears to have noticed a change to the tone of your posts then?

Wiz,
very good post, I can't think for the life of me why oi den has chosen to have a go at you for stating the obvious, there has been 3 of our games postponed away from home because none of them are capable of maintaining the state of their pitch, (I would also add it may be a coincidence, but all had injuries or players band which may have just made it easier for them not play their games).in my opinion they would never be able to participate at a higher level, regardless of how good their teams are today, the grounds are a disgrace, more the reason why we need to get out of this dreadful league.

By the way Den, I know you and LR usually like to have the last word and most times I don't have a problem with that because I do respect both your opinions. On this occassion with you I think you are totally out of order with your negative comments to Wiz, he has made a very valid point and I am totally in agreement with Wiz and very disappointed to read such negative views from you.

I think you owe him a big apology, because nothing you have said makes sense other than reasons you only know why have a go at a very valid point raised by a respected poster. Doh!
OTR, I will explain why I do not believe I owe Wiz any apology.
.
You say I made negative comments in response to a valid points raised by Wiz. On the contrary, Wiz has made several derogatory (i.e negative) comments recently about other football clubs and the Football League, and I was trying to point out that, far from having any basis in fact, that they were simply the result of his undoubted passion for STFC.
.
Some of the difference between Wiz and me is simply a matter of opinion. He thinks the state of the pitch at Crawley was a big deal. I don't. I (like Wiz, I think) wasn't there, so I can't really say much about its condition. From the TV pictures, there certainly seemed to be a few bobbles, but the pitch didn't prevent Crawley producing a fast break from the back - all along the ground - in the first decent move of the game, from which they eventually scored. Nor did it stop De Vita and McCormack from linking brilliantly with some superb footwork to give Williams (I think) the headed chance that brought a fantastic save out of the Crawley keeper.
.
To be quite honest, I think both teams used the pitch as an excuse for what was essentially a poor game of football. I don't think either side actually tried to play much, which brings me on to another point: this myth that we are a wonderful footballing side who suffer more than most on a difficult surface. We are now a strong physical outfit who can look after ourselves and cope well with any pitch and conditions. We do not play a wonderful passing game. PDC publicly abandoned that earlier in the season when he said we would now "be playing a more direct game by knocking balls into the channels. For a few weeks after that, the football we played was some of the worst I have seen from a Town team. Thankfully, that extreme seems to have passed and we now mix it up a lot more. So that's the opinion based difference.
.
The rest of Wiz's argument - and I know it's not just him - is an insult to our fellow clubs. I believe it is a terrible slur to accuse clubs of cheating by manipulating their fixture lists, or of being unconcerned about the state of their pitches. How would we feel if we were accused of cheating? I think we know the answer to that, as it happened only last week. We were outraged. How would we feel if we had gone to the trouble of printing programmes, organising staff resources, ordering in food etc, only to find that our efforts had been thwarted by the weather - and then having salt rubbed into the wounds by being told that we didn't really want to play anyway and had cheated our way to getting the game postponed? It seems that our rivals are cheats if their pitch is unplayable and the game is postponed, and if they do manage to get a doubtful game played they are either cheats or incompetents because their pitch is not up to scratch.
.
Our game is wonderful because it is at the mercy of many unpredictable elements. Let's abandon the search for perfect pitches, perfect referees and perfectly sanitised stadia, and enjoy the marvellous unpredictability of our fantastic winter game - or watch the Premier League on television.
Bit like reading War and Peace that lot , can you run it by me again please :o)

Ahsoles.[/p][/quote]Wiz, very good post, I can't think for the life of me why oi den has chosen to have a go at you for stating the obvious, there has been 3 of our games postponed away from home because none of them are capable of maintaining the state of their pitch, (I would also add it may be a coincidence, but all had injuries or players band which may have just made it easier for them not play their games).in my opinion they would never be able to participate at a higher level, regardless of how good their teams are today, the grounds are a disgrace, more the reason why we need to get out of this dreadful league. By the way Den, I know you and LR usually like to have the last word and most times I don't have a problem with that because I do respect both your opinions. On this occassion with you I think you are totally out of order with your negative comments to Wiz, he has made a very valid point and I am totally in agreement with Wiz and very disappointed to read such negative views from you. I think you owe him a big apology, because nothing you have said makes sense other than reasons you only know why have a go at a very valid point raised by a respected poster. Doh![/p][/quote]OTR, I will explain why I do not believe I owe Wiz any apology. . You say I made negative comments in response to a valid points raised by Wiz. On the contrary, Wiz has made several derogatory (i.e negative) comments recently about other football clubs and the Football League, and I was trying to point out that, far from having any basis in fact, that they were simply the result of his undoubted passion for STFC. . Some of the difference between Wiz and me is simply a matter of opinion. He thinks the state of the pitch at Crawley was a big deal. I don't. I (like Wiz, I think) wasn't there, so I can't really say much about its condition. From the TV pictures, there certainly seemed to be a few bobbles, but the pitch didn't prevent Crawley producing a fast break from the back - all along the ground - in the first decent move of the game, from which they eventually scored. Nor did it stop De Vita and McCormack from linking brilliantly with some superb footwork to give Williams (I think) the headed chance that brought a fantastic save out of the Crawley keeper. . To be quite honest, I think both teams used the pitch as an excuse for what was essentially a poor game of football. I don't think either side actually tried to play much, which brings me on to another point: this myth that we are a wonderful footballing side who suffer more than most on a difficult surface. We are now a strong physical outfit who can look after ourselves and cope well with any pitch and conditions. We do not play a wonderful passing game. PDC publicly abandoned that earlier in the season when he said we would now "be playing a more direct game by knocking balls into the channels. For a few weeks after that, the football we played was some of the worst I have seen from a Town team. Thankfully, that extreme seems to have passed and we now mix it up a lot more. So that's the opinion based difference. . The rest of Wiz's argument - and I know it's not just him - is an insult to our fellow clubs. I believe it is a terrible slur to accuse clubs of cheating by manipulating their fixture lists, or of being unconcerned about the state of their pitches. How would we feel if we were accused of cheating? I think we know the answer to that, as it happened only last week. We were outraged. How would we feel if we had gone to the trouble of printing programmes, organising staff resources, ordering in food etc, only to find that our efforts had been thwarted by the weather - and then having salt rubbed into the wounds by being told that we didn't really want to play anyway and had cheated our way to getting the game postponed? It seems that our rivals are cheats if their pitch is unplayable and the game is postponed, and if they do manage to get a doubtful game played they are either cheats or incompetents because their pitch is not up to scratch. . Our game is wonderful because it is at the mercy of many unpredictable elements. Let's abandon the search for perfect pitches, perfect referees and perfectly sanitised stadia, and enjoy the marvellous unpredictability of our fantastic winter game - or watch the Premier League on television.[/p][/quote]Bit like reading War and Peace that lot , can you run it by me again please :o) Chish and Fips

First of all why is it obvious the new people want Paolo out? If true then why? And don't say it's because his salary is too high as I think the gates will drop if Paolo leaves. Everything is conjecture at the moment and if the new people are not allowed their say until ratification by the Football League then maybe it's best to adopt a wait and see policy?

Paolo has unfinished business at Swindon and will want to finish what he started (if possible) because that is the sort of guy he is, and if he resigns from a managers job every time there is board problem etc then he may as well forget about a future in Management, he is a very intelligent man and will realise this.

I think he is now waiting to see if the new people are approved and if so will the 3 players then join us next weekend? If the answer to these 2 questions is yes then why would he leave? He will then try and finish what he started and get us promoted into the Championship...I guess if he achieved that he would have a string of big clubs vying for his signature!

But if the new people are just chancers and they are not approved which means the 3 players will not be joining us...hence almost certain Administration; then he will quit and our season will be over and our long term future will be under severe threat!!! Fingers crossed or a good outcome next week.

Finally...please ignore that Poxford fool MM as some of you are just feeding him what he wants!
Good post Lazz.
Well done Lazz!....STFC2012 talks a lot of tripe at times and seems to think they're speaking on behalf of others...a pompous egotistical viewpoint is how another poster described them...I'm fast coming to the opinion (my own opinion though) that they were factually correct in their description.

Actually, being honest I came to agree the moment they posted it but thought I'd just make something up as well.

The statement:
"He will bide his time and when the right move is there he will go unless sacked before."
......that applies to every manager in the game doesn't it?....I'll bet a pound that he does decide to leave before he gets sacked....oh and that is Sir Alex I'm talking about....oh hang nope it's errr - well any of them.
....
What tosh!
This is extremely funny. To be accused of talking tripe amidst the foul language and knee jerk reaction that frequents this board. I do not know when I suggested I was a spokesperson for anyone other than myself so I think that is just you. I am giving my opinion on how I see the current situation. I have not presented anything as fact and I do not suggest I am 'in the know'. It seems if you can string 2 coherent sentences together, don't agree with the mouthy frequent posters and have a more dynamic way of thinking other than knee jerk you are in danger of being dubbed 'egotistical' and 'pompous'. I'd rather that than the same old 'heart on your sleeve but not much more' nonsense that is spouted.

And I think you'll find most managers under pressure are sacked before they move on or are forced in to saying it was a mutual agreement. My point is wasted on you. PDC will now be more active and more open to other positions that previously may not have been of interest to him. A big move yes but a sideways move would not have been considered until now. With the board not able to pay him off this is pretty clearly a game of cat and mouse. Make things difficult and force him to resign. He used words such as 'untenable' which he may now well regret as he is still here (for now). While currently making it clear to all and sundry he is ready to 'move on' those clubs potentially interested just need to give Phil a call. You don't accuse a new board of going behind your back if you plan on building a new relationship with them and you don't go behind your manager's back if you are planning to start a relationship with him. It's all politics now and both sides are essentially kissing babies trying to keep the fans on their side. PDC is firmly going to win this race as the others cannot really talk at present. Why else would he release the statement - he could have just had a wait and see policy rather than teasing he may leave to alert other clubs and win the fans over. He could have said ' I did not want to sell Matt Richie and did not sanction the sale'. That would have been enough and said a lot more with fewer words. We know no more from his long statement than we would have with the one above. If anything it has just confused everyone further and prompted the inevitable barrage of questions aimed at him which he now wishes not to answer.

In terms of the new board, I find it hard to believe they will be any where near as wealthy as the last board and even if they did have lots of money they should have learned by the previous example that throwing money around doesn't always give you what you want unless they want a mess like this. It's hard for a board to please fans. Look after the pennies and they are seen as unambitious but in contrast if they throw it around then usually it doesn't benefit the club in the long term. The new board will hopefully look at the income and try and stick within the wage budget and develop from the ground up with sensible salaries for players.

the phrases "mirror mirror on the wall & pot kettle and black" spring to mind and provide an excellent self analysis of your critic -its so uncanny and very self descriptive lol!

Also hypocrisy is sometimes rife on here and Lydiard makes an excellent point ala "Wizards tone changed (or what Den has called bitterness if you like) when the Di Canio debates were going on weeks ago."

Jock,
You bring this up more times than the pendulum swings in a year. I have always said that I don't agree with the public berating of players. Lets get that straight, I have never denied that, BUT MANY OTHERS HAVE SAID THE SAME, so go pick on a few of those as well eh? lets see you start poping at them as well.
A complete NO, I have never said that I want him to go either, and if tollerating him doing his name/shame/blame thing is key to him staying then I have no problem with that, as you would never ever let that go, would you. You would love to blame somebody for that, but how about shifting the focus to your continuous downer on both Williams and Collins, "the WC two/the WC pair" as you have called them, and the fact you wanted them flushed out of the club, but you stand and applaud their goals, hypocrite ?????
Guilty as charged re the bog roll two!! :) Just to be consistent and non-hypocritical they were both cr@p against Crawley weren't they? AND OTHERS HAVE SAID THE SAME :)
They made A Rooney look like W Rooney when he came on.There you go Wiz anybody can twist words to suit - so how do you explain that its not only me who appears to have noticed a change to the tone of your posts then?
TBH, yep I may have had a go over the postponed games, but I have tried to remain positive, optimistic and looking forwards to better times all through this take over, especially since when it was obvious things were not going smoothly. I still think Non Matey Patey has a few skeletons in the cupboard over Ritchies sale though. The news black out, pardon the pun, is right up a politicians street is it not. I'm hoping for all this to go through, get ratified/approved/ru
bber stamped so that the latest three loans can come in and hopefully start contributing asap. I want the manager to stay and not leave in the summer, but to get us into the Championship and stabilise us there.
Did I miss anything out, and oh yes, I must admit after seeing the TV, I though both penalties were soft, but even at my best I couldn't have played as well as either of our forwards yesterday, even in my prime, like you, a long time ago, lol.
Fact of the matter is our buddy loves them and plays them, 'nuff said.

See its not just moi Wiz. Lets hope your new buddy Jed's Famous Five cut the mustard next week which of course they will won't they because your research has told you they are a team of substance. Thank goodness we can all sleep easy now that you've given your blessing to the new kids on the block.

The fact that they haven't leaves them open. It is however strange that L.O got our match postponed, it continued to rain and the next game was on, but their injured players were back. call it speculation, co-incidence or act of God. That said L.O have been in the league for years and as such it should be expected for them to be able to deal with this sort of situation.
They know how their pitch reacts to rainfall, their problem, they should deal with it.
I find it strange that in this day and age of regulation there seems to be little legislation by the FL to ensure that pitches are adequately drained etc. Snow I can sympathise with as it is so random, but our main man showed what can be done if you ask for help. Oxford did nothing, match postponed, it reflects ambition and desire of the people trying to drive the club forwards, and supporters will help.
I'm not on a one man crusade or anything like that, but I am frankly amazed some clubs do so little while others do a lot. I received both sides of the argument here, but I think some can see that I am trying to be constructive and asking why ???? some clubs are not doing more and they should be.

No personal animosity from me either Wiz. There are clearly plenty of others in your camp on these matters, so my argument is with all of them too. All I would add to the debate now is that even if I believed any club would stoop so low as to engineer a postponement, I think the chances are they would be wasting their time (and probably losing money in the process, as I'm sure Orient did by losing the Boxing Day match). There is no guarantee that they could influence the result by delaying the game. Wiz, I think we are one big football fraternity, especially smaller clubs like ourselves and Orient. I think we should battle tooth and nail against each other on the pitch, and stick together with mutual respect off it.

Whilst mushy is clearly an attention seeking imbecile with little else to occupy his time, his admittedly erudite posts suggest to me he is neither Hugh Curran or an Oxford fan.

Mushy, there is no gap in Pewsham and I never said you weren't from Swindon. Other than that - good point! Perhaps I was a little hasty in my suggestion you were erudite. Maybe you are Hugh Curran.

First of all why is it obvious the new people want Paolo out? If true then why? And don't say it's because his salary is too high as I think the gates will drop if Paolo leaves. Everything is conjecture at the moment and if the new people are not allowed their say until ratification by the Football League then maybe it's best to adopt a wait and see policy?

Paolo has unfinished business at Swindon and will want to finish what he started (if possible) because that is the sort of guy he is, and if he resigns from a managers job every time there is board problem etc then he may as well forget about a future in Management, he is a very intelligent man and will realise this.

I think he is now waiting to see if the new people are approved and if so will the 3 players then join us next weekend? If the answer to these 2 questions is yes then why would he leave? He will then try and finish what he started and get us promoted into the Championship...I guess if he achieved that he would have a string of big clubs vying for his signature!

But if the new people are just chancers and they are not approved which means the 3 players will not be joining us...hence almost certain Administration; then he will quit and our season will be over and our long term future will be under severe threat!!! Fingers crossed or a good outcome next week.

2. Do we still have PDC?

3. Can we still sign the proposed loan players at the end of the week and Wright -Phillips in particular? His goals would see us promoted.

The rest of the debate is just totally secondary and Jock, Den and Wizard, you should know better by now!!
