Loan trio still have Town future

Swindon Advertiser: SECOND CHANCE?: Luke Rooney SECOND CHANCE?: Luke Rooney

PAUL Benson, Oliver Risser and Luke Rooney still have a future with Swindon Town, according to manager Paolo Di Canio.

The trio are currently on loan with Portsmouth, Stevenage and Rotherham respectively, having been deemed surplus to requirements at the County Ground earlier in the campaign.

However, Di Canio stressed that while they might have been out of favour at the beginning of the season that doesn’t automatically mean they won’t be able to fight their way back into his plans for the Robins in the months to come.

And he said each player would be made “more than welcome” if and when they return to Wiltshire.

“I know them. I don’t mind about what has happened in the last few weeks, even if it is important that someone has played many games,” he said.

“Paul Benson has played four games - he didn’t score but he did his job and he was very professional. We know Paul so if he’s coming back he’s more than welcome.

“Oliver hasn’t played many games, he’s had some as a sub but everybody loves him there because he’s a real professional, he’s dedicated and committed and if he’s coming back, he doesn’t want to stay there or they don’t want to keep him there, he’s more than welcome.

“We also don’t know what’s going on with (John) Bostock, with Danny Hollands and we could have a similar situation that we had one month or two months ago.

“Luke Rooney didn’t play one game. We don’t know what’s going on and we have to make a decision and then we will see.

“I don’t need to make my judgement on the last two weeks.

“I know their quality, I know their professionalism. In the last few weeks I made a decision but that doesn’t mean they can’t be part of my team in the future and do a good job for us.”

Meanwhile, Town were left frustrated by the weather as their Boxing Day visit to Leyton Orient was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

The game at Brisbane Road was called off in the early afternoon on Christmas Day, with no date yet decided for the rearranged fixture.

It makes me think there its no new players coming in, and the loan players going back...

In business you have to spend money to make money, we would get 4 to 5 million tv money in the championship, as apposed to about 1.3 million this season, and more revenue from bigger gates, sponsorship ect, ect.

If we do want to go up, we have to keep, Ward, Bostock, Hollands, Martin... Rooney used this as a holiday, imho...

I hope I'm reading to much into it...

We had a ridiculous injury crisis when pdc sent them out on loan...

The only reason paolo is coming out with this is because he has finaly realised that he and jw spent way way to much at the start of the season and there is very little left in the pot..
Think about it..IF ALL are loan players were to be sent back and with Rooney here for the rest of the season that will turn are very small pop in2 a egg-cup...

HOPE IN WRONG but i think wasting money and sending players out on loan then bringing in so say better players apart from Bostock and Ward will cost STFC in the second half of the season ..

Both Benson and Connell scored yesterday, and NO I'm not starting the Connell debate again, just saying he had a good Boxing Day.

Pompey just played Paul alone up front yesterday and he he got one for them, well done that man. Very pleased those old legs are still running even if they are past their best.

Very surprised that LO haven't got covers they could have used, the other night against Tranmere I thought our pitch despite all the weather looked superb even at the end of play. Full credit to our ground staff.

Hi Wiz how are you bud, regarding Cox I would bring him back to sit in the stands rather than let the Pox benefit from him. Out of Cox, Risser, Benson and Rooney I would only keep the latter who surely has not become a bad player overnight. I would expect Paolo to try and coach Luke to better things and certainly saw enough in the game he played for Gillingham against us down here when he tore us to shreds. With Caddis surely being signed by Brum and possibly three of the above going I can see at least one or two coming in but still feel a keeper would help keep Fodds on his toes but we would be in the mire should he get injured no disrespect to young Bedwell. Have a great new year Wiz and your family.

Thanks Mike, apart from the throat and chest thing going around we are all fine.Had the pleasure of both sons home for Christmas which was good, even if the eldest is going a bit thin on top, (cycling helmet), LOL. He takes the stick very well.

I think like you, that some of our younger players are worth bearing with for the future, but the sticking point is wages. I don't think we will have much of a pot if any players for our man to wheel and deal. I know we signed TAH for 3 years but we seem to have seen little return for our money, and he was in the embargo equation. I hope he comes on and is able to repay us for some of that pain at the time.
Any road, looking forward to the Pompey game now. All the best for what remains of the Festive Season and of course wishing you a simply brilliant New Year, hopefully one we can all enjoy.

It's been reported that Birminham are on the brink of administration, and will need to sell in January (£10M!!) to avoid going into it, unless a buyer for the club is found. Uncertain therefore that they will offer us a fee for Caddis even if they are able to buy him.

Having just read about Henning Berg parting company with Blackburn Rovers, I am glad to see that we have more stability than them.

Paolo will not be flavour of the month with some people, but he has shown loyalty and commitment to Swindon Town and I can't see him leaving for a while.

Back to the loan trio - Benson and Rooney I would look to keep on, but Rissier can go. A good player, but he seems to blow hot and cold.

Hopefully we will see a few new faces in the New Year (four or so would be good) and we can look to kick on. Still not 100% convinced we will go up, although I hope we do, and a top eight finish will be an achievement. The top of League 1 is very tight, and it will be a big ask for us to get into the play-offs. Yes, we beat Tranmere 5-1, but we are also capable of losing 5-1 if it's not our day.

We do need to sort the issue of the stadium redevelopment/reloca
tion, and perhaps this is more essential to our future than promotion to the Championship.

OK Pdc has made a few errors and wasted all kinds of money.Yet we are 5th in the table with a decent goal average.
Let's not worry about caddis or Birmingham, what I would say is the Board have backed Pdc why not go the whole hogg and give him what he needs to get us promoted.
As a post said the revenue in the championship would bear fruits.
At the back of my head all I hear is how mega rich our Board are, I thank AF?JW for what has been done so come on do it Board feel Pdc will do it yet again.
They must see this is an opportunity not a gamble
Mikek sorry cancelled trip but will be in march/apl for sure

Dont think the board can just put money in as every club has to live with the 65% rules.

Having just read about Henning Berg parting company with Blackburn Rovers, I am glad to see that we have more stability than them.

Paolo will not be flavour of the month with some people, but he has shown loyalty and commitment to Swindon Town and I can't see him leaving for a while.

Back to the loan trio - Benson and Rooney I would look to keep on, but Rissier can go. A good player, but he seems to blow hot and cold.

Hopefully we will see a few new faces in the New Year (four or so would be good) and we can look to kick on. Still not 100% convinced we will go up, although I hope we do, and a top eight finish will be an achievement. The top of League 1 is very tight, and it will be a big ask for us to get into the play-offs. Yes, we beat Tranmere 5-1, but we are also capable of losing 5-1 if it's not our day.

We do need to sort the issue of the stadium redevelopment/reloca

tion, and perhaps this is more essential to our future than promotion to the Championship.
Cant remember Tranmere scoring they hit the bar and our worse defeat is 4-1 so i cant see us losing 5 as our defence is as good as last season .

Did you notice the badge had fallen off his jumper? At least there wasn't a Swansea badge under it!

Why on earth do we need 4 new players? And if we sign them how can we be sure they will improve our chances? I think we've built a nice bit of momentum in the last few games, particularly last Friday's match when the players found the energy and passion to do justice to their ability. It does seem likely that PDC will recruit a couple of new faces in January. I certainly wouldn't be too upset if we just continue to work with what we have.
.
Tend to agree with Daz on loyalty. PDC is not (yet?) a hot property. I'm sure many chairmen, especially at higher levels, would be very wary of employing him given his well publicised outbursts against our own board. PDC has been good for the club, and the club has been good for PDC. When he eventually leaves us he will be very lucky to get the same excellent financial backing he's had from our board. We are one of the bigger fish in a small pond - both in terms of current backing and potential attendances. Throw in the patience of the board and you have the ideal position for any young manager learning the ropes. All in all, I don't see any reason for PDC wanting to leave. As Daz suggests, the test of loyalty will come if a bigger club tries to tempt him away.
.
Agree with you on the stadium. Despite Patey's recent comments, I don't see why the club can't tell us what they hope to do and what conditions need to be in place for it to happen. It doesn't have to be a promise.

The way Paul Benson has been treated by PDC is nothing short of an absolute disgrace.

Shame on you PDC, you are obviously a man with no integrity!!
