5:49pm

Di Canio also revealed Paul Caddis is no closer to sealing a permanent move to Birmingham, while offers have been received for Aden Flint.

Swindon Advertiser: Alan McCormack is convinced Paul Caddis will be back

STALLED: Paul Caddis

“We agreed a deal in some way, but we receive they can not buy him now. At the moment they say no, and 99% not for the rest of the month. We are happy to keep Rooney here to the end of the year.

“Aden Flint is an important player because Troy is out, but we received a request from clubs ready to spend money and it is one option, probably the main one, because there is this opportunity.

“If possible I want to bring in another player.

“If we have to send out all the loan players it would be the worst madness in the world.

“It is something I do not understand because I do not want to burn my brain, I don’t want to spend energy thinking about why.”

 

5:46pm

Paolo Di Canio has also said he would be willing to put his own money into the club to ensure Town can keep the likes of Chris Martin, John Bostock and Danny Holllands.

Swindon Advertiser: Town boss Paolo Di Canio

AUTO-FINANCE: PDC

“I will do everything.

“I will do everything, even put in my money and I am not joking.

“I will put in something which is mad to keep those players.

“Now I am here I am not a passive manager, because it is a shame to lose these players in this moment.

“In this atmosphere it is a shame, and it is not a provocation.

“I will put my money to keep them as long as we can, because I care and I want to win.

“With them we have more chance and I will do my best.

“I have to try and do something and I can not do anything in this moment.”

“I have to go step by step by priority, and it is obvious Danny Hollands and Chris Martin want to stay desperate, and in the last few game do more and more.”

“I am not going to sell my houses, but if it is enough £30,000 I will put, £300,000 is stupid.

“In terms of £20,000 or £30,000 I will for sure because I have ambition. When I did I want to have less money and more success.

“I spent big money on solicitors, so I will for players.

“Tonight and tomorrow I hope to receive some phone call, and the last three win should change someone else’s opinion.

“I have to find another way to keep this group.”

5:31pm

The Town boss was pleased with the way his side scored their goals this afternoon.

Swindon Advertiser: Town boss Paolo Di Canio

“All of the goals came from the movement, and it came from the training session so thanks to them.
“The first one from a simple throw in made me happy because it was a fantastic goal, but because Andy, after a few months, didn’t sleep in the ground and asked the ball and not wait for the ball. That made me happy because sometimes he waits for the ball to arrive to him.
“Everybody is starting to understand what we do and how we can arrive.
“The other goals were beautiful, and there were many situations where I thought it was not easy to make 15 or 16 clear chances and another 20 potential where we didn’t pass the ball well.
“I want to see us suffer more and win five or six games 1-0, and that would give me a final answer and show the maturity is complete.”

5:28pm

Di Canio has previously stated how he believes it will be tough for Town to stay at the top end of League One, but he has now changed his opinion.

Swindon Advertiser: Swindon Town boss Paolo Di Canio

PAOLO DI CANIO

“We brought in two lads that are very good in integrating themselves because they are not arrogant, and they brought a quality, professionalism, desire and competition.
“My players turned my opinion, and it’s obvious the big surprise is to win and score 14 goals, because even the top team in the world should expect to give something away, Barcelona.
“The players want to make sure they take the information on the field, and that shows 10 steps forwards and they feel their responsibily.
“But they are not tense and are cool in what they are doing, and they are a real group and a team.
“In the way we reached the level made me very happy and positive, if we can maintain this group.”

5:16pm

Town boss Paolo Di Canio is speaking to the media, and joked today's 4-0 is a step back from their two recent 5-0 home wins.

Swindon Advertiser: SWIPE: Paolo Di Canio on Saturday

HAPPY: PDC

“This is one step back, no it was the best performance of the season because it came after two 5-0 at home.

“It was against a side who was a banana skin, and we didn’t fall in the trap which is why I am very happy.

“My players pushed to score a goal, but not one chance for our opponents.

“I am happy with the way we played because there is not one player who upsets me and every single one did a fantastic job and I am very happy.

“We have to also think in the future we want the same support when we are 1-0 down.

“Every game is a big game, and it is thanks to the job the players did.

“We play Bournemouth next week which is a very key game, and thanks to them I gave them a longer rest, one day.”

ADVER SPORTS WRITER ANDY WARREN: Andy Williams and James Collins are working together superbly this afternoon, just like they did at the start of the season. The pace of Williams and power of Collins is causing the Carlisle defence problems, and forcing them out of shape with wave after wave of attack. But for a litttle more composure the lead could be even more, but Town are looking very comfortable.

Goals from Andy Williams and James Collins give Town a comfortable lead at the break.

3:45pm

42 minutes: Town work the ball into the area and have at least five opportunities to shoot, but choose not to and the chance is gone. Three minutes added.

3:43pm

40 minutes: Robson has the visitors’ first shot, and it  is very wide.

3:42pm

39 minutes: Collins zips a cross through the six-yard area, but there is no-one there.

3:40pm

37 minutes: GOAL 2-0 TOWN (Collins) Great ball into the six-yard box from Ritchie allows Collins to thump a header home. No more than Town have deserved.

3:35pm

Town looking pretty comfortable so far, but should be more than 1-0 up.

3:32pm

30 minutes: Collins superbly holds off his man on half-way to free Roberts, but after the pair charge into the Carlisle box the winger’s pull-back is perhaps a little late. The striker does get a shot off, but it is cleared off the line by Matty Robson.

3:31pm

The injured Town striker has his say on Andy Williams' opener.

3:24pm

21 minutes: Town are free again through Williams who pulls it back for Collins, the striker slips before getting a shot off which is blocked.
 

3:21pm

16 minutes GOAL 1-0 TOWN (Williams): Great finish from the striker who lifts McCormack’s throw over the head of his marker before finding the back of the net.

12 minutes: Williams sends himself inside with a good touch, but curls wide.

3:13pm

10 minutes: Williams robs Liam Noble of possession, and James Collins picks up play and crosses for Gary Roberts whose effort back across goal just drifts wide. A great effort from a narrow angle.

2:47pm

DANGER MEN

Swindon Advertiser:

Lee Miller

The Scot plays a vital role in everything the Cumbrians try to do, and is the spearhead of their 4-3-3 formation. Although not blessed with pace, the big striker likes the ball into feet and looks to free his teammates when possible. The former Aberdeen man returned from injury recently, and has instantly shown why he has been sorely missed.

Swindon Advertiser:
Matty Robson

The left-sided player is a seasoned performer in the bottom two divisions, having played well over 100 games for both Carlisle and former club Hartlepool. Although more regularly a left-midfielder this season, Robson has switched to left-back for today and will look to get forward to support Miller.

Swindon Advertiser:
James Berrett
The midfielder scored a thumping goal on his last visit to the County Ground, and is certainly a player that doesn’t need to be afforded any space by Town this afternoon. The former Huddersfield junior can control play if he is allowed to, and looks to get the ball into the feet of Miller to begin Carlisle’s attacking moves.

CHARITY BET
At the beginning of 2013 Sam and Andy are making a new start and are looking to use their (questionable) football knowledge to raise money for Swindon Town Football in the Community Trust.

Today's bets are:
Sam: Swindon Town 1-0 Carlisle, Andy Williams first scorer. 20/1
Andy: Swindon Town 2-0 Carlisle, Matt Ritchie first scorer. 25/1

Last week we successfully managed to win nothing for charity, so let’s hope for a different outcome today.

All money will be donated to the trust at the end of the season.

2:41pm

Carlisle boss Greg Abbott believes his side deserved to get something from their 1-0 defeat at Crewe, and has challenged his players to raise their game for today’s visit to Swindon.

Swindon Advertiser: Greg Abbott

GREG ABBOTT

"The positive at Crewe was that we played well enough to get something out of the game. We've got to dust ourselves down, not feel sorry for ourselves, pick up and take on one of the form sides in the division. With respect to Crewe, Swindon are probably a better side.

“They've got more resources to go with, but we have to go in with the belief that on our day, and with our game improving, we can cause them problems.

"We should have had nine points out of the last nine, not six, but we dust ourselves down. Certainly the performances are improving and the belief is improving and we are looking a better side at the moment."

2:39pm

LAST TIME OUT

Town will be hoping for a much better afternoon than the one the endured last time they hosted Carlisle, with a 1-0 defeat seeing them sink further towards relegation from League One.

2:17pm

IN THE AWAY DUGOUT – Greg Abbott

Swindon Advertiser:

CARLISLE BOSS GREG ABBOTT

Since taking over the managerial position at Carlisle at the end of 2008, Abbott has ensured the club has gone from strength to strength.

He originally took over as caretaker after Neil McDonald was sacked in August 2007, and went on to win five of his 10 games in charge to lead the Cumbrians to fourth place in the league, but current Bristol Rovers boss John Ward was eventually given the permanent job, and Abbott returned to being assistant manager. Together, the pair led the club to the play-offs before losing to Leeds United in the semi-finals.

Things didn’t start well the following season, and a run of nine defeats in 10 games saw Ward leave the club, and after another spell as caretaker Abbott eventually landed the job full-time.

In his first season he kept the club in League One by a single point, and after that close shave he has led the club to a succession of safe mid-table finishes, as well as eighth position last season.

Swindon Advertiser:

As a player, the right-back spent the majority of his time with Bradford, where he made close to 300 appearances in total before moving to Halifax and Guiseley.
He was given another shot at league football with Hull in 1992, and spent four seasons at Boothferry Park before retiring in 1996.

Chris Martin could play his final game for Swindon Town against Carlisle this afternoon.

He's dropped to the bench for today's game in the wake of James Collins' four goals aganst Portsmouth.

Martin spoke in midweek of his amazement as his fellow striker went on a 22-minute rampage against Pompey.

He said: “I was happy for Collo because he’s been a little unlucky not to get more minutes on the pitch I feel, since I’ve been here. We’ve been winning games and you have to take your chance when it comes.

Swindon Advertiser: Chris Martin

“He’s done that. He’s come in and scored four goals. It was surreal sitting there and watching it. We were laughing on the sideline after two and three, and he got an assist as well, it’s probably the best 25 minutes or half an hour of football I’ve seen someone have. He was absolutely on fire.”

Paolo Di Canio wants Carlisle to be worried by Swindon Town when the two teams meet later today.

After back to back 5-0 victories, the mood is excellent in the Swindon camp and their Italian manager hopes that to continue this afternoon.

He said: “They lost their last game and we are coming from a very good run.

“I don’t want to say worried because worried is a very hard word but they will think they have to go here and do well because they can lose and lose very badly because we are a good team.

“I don’t know them. Sometimes when I go play in a place when there is a team who are on a good run I am not worried and I tell my players ‘listen, be careful because this is a team that can damage us if we are not focused’.

“I imagine that Carlisle, against us, away from home, after they’ve seen the last few results we’ve had, can be worried in my opinion.

“We have to confirm their worry by playing our football."

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the Advertiser's live coverage of Swindon Town's League One clash with Carlisle United.

Coming into the game off the back of two successive 5-0 victories at the County Ground, the Swindon crowd could be forgiven for expecting another rout this afternoon.

However, Carlisle are not an easy nut to crack, as they showed when they held Swindon to a 2-2 draw at Brunton Park earlier this term.

It's set to be a tight and tough encounter, as Paolo Di Canio's Robins look to claim the win that could take them within two points of second-placed Sheffield United.

If Martin starts i think we will be keeping him , if he doesn't he will be gone, why give him a chance to score and boost is confidence if he is not going to be here after today and could end up at one of our rivals ?? Just a thought.

Just leaving for the match now. Would be amazed if Collins doesn't start but if it is the 3 loanees last game for us I hope we get a chance to see them all and give them a good send off as all have contributed this year.

The Paolo bandwagon rolls on - and now he's offering to put £30K towards the transfer kitty!

I've had doubts about him in the past, but this kind of commitment is second to none. There are so many players playing well and supporting each other, that when some have an off-day it shouldn't be too obvious. Next week is going to be the biggest test since Sheffield Utd.

Well I felt rough as old boots today and debated to stay in the warm and even though I feel much worse now, what a tonic that game and display was simply excellent yet again and what a team display fact is not many teams will live with us at the moment. Do a number on Bournemouth and we will be flying but a draw down there will do. Williams and Collins are looking like a very good partnership and the goals are flowing at last. The workrate today and closing down was superb and Carlisle never really had a sniff and were well beaten. Could and should have been 8-0 today as their goal lived a charmed life. There is no way Flint should go he is the future and as Ward said a while back Flint can go all the way. With Troy out Flint is our only cover should Ward or Devera get injured or suspended. Hollands and Martin til the end of the season minimum and we may have to loose Bostock.

Strange that there is no comment from Angolan red and a few other PDC doubters on here, how many other managers have you ever heard offering to pay for players what a true legend. The board have to do everything in their power to keep this man at the helm if that means giving him full control of the club from the youth team up then do it. That was as good a Swindon display as I have witnessed and I have been going for 35 years, total and utter domination Carlisle could not have complained if it was 10

No. Don't get the buckets out. Instead of 5000 of us getting a tenner out.... How about 2000 of us pay for a mate to come along to a home game?!? They might even come back and there will be more of a crowd to get behind the team.

Hey SAP can you help get this off the ground with your contacts at the Adver?

The Shrews match would be a good one to target.

What about the club opening up Stratton Bank and let fans pay what they like min £5 to raise extra money.

Awesome stuff, 90 minutes of total domination from everyone involved.

Who are these new strikers we have called Collins and Williams they look fantastic.

Roberts put in a great shift today, tackles and headers too!

Thompson just gets better and better, no chance of him bottling a 40/60 challenge, and so much stronger than Caddis defensively.

Ward and Devera rock solid at the back, Macca superb at left back.

Brilliant performance, could have been 7 if Devera and Roberts had not missed from 1 yard and Martin finshed his big chance, plus countless other great passing moves.

Really do think we can push on from here, but we definitely need Hollands and Martin. Utter madness if we sell Flint with Troy injured!

If I was the board I would be slightly embarassed at their manager offering to pay for players, surely they will now do the decent thing to extend the loans.

Great stuff all round, Paolo is a legend already.

Maybe the Supporters club or those involved in selling the 50-50 draw tickets can help with contacts and what is needed to set it in motion.

We ran them ragged today.

Wonder if Smirg kcab quote "out forwards are shiite" still believes this ?

Reckon we are going to thrash someone by a very big score this season.

Movement was great today.

MOM for me Hollands ran the show closely followed by Thompson who never put a foot wrong.

Something wrong when you leave the ground disappointed not scoring five :)

Then Paolo's interview to round off a fantastic day.....legend.
Board please please please support his wishes as "something special is happening in Wiltshire"

No. Don't get the buckets out. Instead of 5000 of us getting a tenner out.... How about 2000 of us pay for a mate to come along to a home game?!? They might even come back and there will be more of a crowd to get behind the team.
I am bringing 5 adults at least to the Hartlepool game. Jolly boys day out on the train.

Great idea ... come on everyone choose Hartlepool 9th Feb and bring an adult.

Matt Le Tiss was very complimentary about the Town and said several times during his reports that he was very impressed with Swindons performance.
He also made the comment that Town fans have a bit of a dilema as far as PDC is concerned. "They obviously want him to stay as he is doing so well but the more success he has with Swindon the more likely it will be that they will lose him to another club !

Great win again. Desperately need to keep Hollands and Martin if we want to go up this year. Not too bothered about bostock, he's probably on high wages and mostly on the bench when we have enough midfield cover now.

On the back of a run like this, Mr Black must surely think about keeping the two of them on. We're not exactly talking millions for new players, he just needs to weigh up the wages for two players till the end of the season vs the extra money gained for being in the championship a year earlier than planned.

Then I have to agree with Phil King. So strong all round. There must be some outstanding CMs at Charlton if they are prepared to let Hollands stay here. We were just as dominant after the 3 subs which is a great strength. I will resist MOM because it was the team that won it. For such a long time we lacked players who attack the ball in our own or the oppositions areas. NO more. Joe and James take a bow.

Just home, took two mates today and both extremely impressed. One a West ham supporter, the other floats between Town, Pox and Reading games depending on work etc. Both said total domination and this was CCC football not League One. Both very impressed with 4-4-2 in defence and when going forward very obviously 4-2-4. I thought Roberts had his best game in a while and showed his versatility and Thompson for me M-o-t-m.

I seem to remember somebody doubting Williams and Collins and I did say they would come good, a toilet pair, somehow I don't think so.

If the supporters club get buckets out to help the man, I'll stick in a tenner, but this week I bought tickets for two mates, and proud to do my bit.

In case the worse possible outcome does occur, many thanks to our loans for what they have done and tried to do, efforts appreciated.

Good idea I'm up for that.

Hey SAP can you help get this off the ground with your contacts at the Adver?

The Shrews match would be a good one to target.

What about the club opening up Stratton Bank and let fans pay what they like min £5 to raise extra money.
I like your Stratton Bank idea Okus, nice one which would be well worth trying.

One fact that has not come up is the number of clean sheets that Fodds has kept. Having seen the Oldham and Pompey games he didn't have a huge amount to do but when the opposition do come forward I am beginning to feel they will never get past him.

Mind you he's also got a great back 4 in front of him and that's with McEverley, TAH and Flinty out of the team.

What with Hollands now in the hole we are looking very solid at the back indeed.

Just wish we could score more :o

Couple of points to support your views Oxon;

The delivery into the box has certainly improved and confimed by so many recent goals from short range.

The first Williams goal today was even better 2nd time as you say and even better still 3rd time, when the Sky presenter had trouble with his gadget!!

To keep backing up these performances is fantastic but my day has been made by Darren saying he's not going to go on about PDC wasting money.... Break the beers out. Finally the penny has dropped. Well done that man.

The interviews on BBC Wiltshire were extraordinary tonight. Not just Paolo and his offer of cash (having already given away his image rights). But his happiness in the work being done and the intensity of training. How the back four working so hard in as a unit up and down without any ball in play.

Ward then comes on says he's delighted to sign and that he's never worked so hard in his fifteen years of being a professional. Extraordinary. Our demanding manager is everything.

Then Williams delighted to have a day off tomorrow as it's their first one in a month. I've said all along I can't get enough of Paolo's methods but now we've got Darren on board hopefully all the doubters will jump aboard the Di Canio Express.

Strikers on fire, another reason for me to go to the bookies at the end of the season when we win this league.

As well as bringing a mate put your cash on us next w/e and give half to the club. Also London (apologies for singling you out) is it time to think about not getting a season ticket. I have one, its not cost effective as I miss some games but its about supporting the club....

Back to back to back promotions coming. Watching the birth of a managerial legend . (Isn't he already)?! Build a statue of him when he takes us into the Premiership.

Will be celebrating myself shortly with some decent malt.

I wonder how the phone calls are going ? I suppose your mate, the emperor, will have to give up his wages as opposed to the complications around a cash injection into the clubs finances. Either way its a solid idea and certainly does underline to Black what a personality we have here, almost embarrassing Black into action. I'm no fan of Patey, but I hope he has to choke on some words releasing money into the wage pot now. If not we will do it.

Fantastic result and great performance.

Game next Saturday is huge and a win would be a massive step to being champions again.

I think I'm right in saying (correct me if I am wrong) that last season at Southend and this season at Stevenage were games against sides on a long unbeaten run before the mighty Town thrashed them.

Same again at Bournemouth would make everyone sit up and realise that the Di Canio express is truly in top gear.

Come on you reds!!

I think I'm right in saying (correct me if I am wrong) that last season at Southend and this season at Stevenage were games against sides on a long unbeaten run before the mighty Town thrashed them. Same again at Bournemouth would make everyone sit up and realise that the Di Canio express is truly in top gear. Come on you reds!! bristol_red

Wasn't that a curiously exciting last 10 minutes today? 4-0 up, the points safely in the bag and it was as if we were pressing for a winning goal. I heard the bloke behind me say to his son "You could be about to see a bit of history being made." It nearly happened. Fantastic stuff anyway. It's going to very interesting to see what happens on the temporary and long-term transfer front now.

Massive game saturday , would be happy with a draw but with the confidence flowing we could batter them . Great banter between the fans today and hopefully that will become more regular as it really lifted everyone . Paolo you are a legend

Went with my brother in law to see Burnley lose to Barnsley and the Burnley fans were even better than the Pompey fans at the CG on Tuesday. What a repertoire of songs! And as you can imagine there were a few about CA although he wasn't playing today.

Just reminds me, that's what we need now, a goal scoring hero to set the heart racing. An Eastoe, a Mayes, or a Fjortoft.

Could it be time for Williams and/or Collins to start to reserve their places in the Legend's Lounge?

By the way, what a fantastic gate today. Over 9,000 on a few days after a big gate against Pompey. Perhaps we should have kid for a quid more often. Also really like the idea of paying for a mate to come along.

My contribution to increasing gates was to forget to bring down the Xmas presents when I came down recently. So, will have to make a return journey which just happens to coincide with the Shrewsbury game.

I have to admit that when Martin was substituted by Collins on Tuesday, I said to my brother, "there's one cr*p striker being replaced by another".

I just love being proved wrong!

All these ideas sound great in a forum and a few like minded fans mat agree - but unfortunately that is all that will agree and the general public won't
.
This show called sign of support by donating cash has been done before - and not to that much affect!!
.
We had the Red Army Fund - yes we got a loanee once out of it - but that went for years - showing many don't part with their cash - we will not raise £30k by end of the window!
.
Also it wasn't that long ago the board did a rights issue where they asked existing shareholders to back them and also offered it up to new shareholders
.
I took them up - but think I must have been alone as of the 2m looked to be raised they had to buy over 95% of the share themselves!!!
.
Also as Stratton says opening up the bank bar the odd promotion game or big cup game only moves people around and doesn't increase the crowd by much
.
They would be better doing what they did on sat and offer £20 tickets and all under 16s for £1 to boost crowds
.
The only thing which will actually bring people in is the football and 5-0 5-0 and 4-0 should really help
.
With most of our home games now against the lower sides a few more thumping a should draw people out - especially if we get into the top 2

Whether, or not, any money is collected is not as important as the show of support and commitment to OUR team as being demonstrated by both Paolo and the fans alike. What an all round team.

I've had doubts about him in the past, but this kind of commitment is second to none. There are so many players playing well and supporting each other, that when some have an off-day it shouldn't be too obvious. Next week is going to be the biggest test since Sheffield Utd.
May be us fans can also help with funding I'd have no qualm putting in a tenner or more and imagine if 5000 fans did that for Paolo. How about it STFC fans.

No. Don't get the buckets out. Instead of 5000 of us getting a tenner out.... How about 2000 of us pay for a mate to come along to a home game?!? They might even come back and there will be more of a crowd to get behind the team.
Good idea I'm up for that.

Hey SAP can you help get this off the ground with your contacts at the Adver?

The Shrews match would be a good one to target.

What about the club opening up Stratton Bank and let fans pay what they like min £5 to raise extra money.
Hi there folks,

I could ask and even extend the enquiry to those I know within the club...being honest, Shrewsbury may be too soon but lets ask and see what we get back.
...
I'm sure the Advertiser would allow us a thread to advertise the event.
...
We'd need voluntary stewards and those on the Stratton Bank (or whatever it is called these days) gates as we don't want it to cost the club out of the money we raise plus maybe...JUST maybe, Black would be willing to match what we raise?....shame we couldn't do it with the Town End as well really but complications over the season ticket seats there.

Need a catchy name though!!

Probably need to steer clear of things like Paolo's War Chest! :-)

Have to agree with LR's realism on this. But as he says as he says with the lower teams coming to the County Ground now, it might be best to continue with the £20 per adult plus kid for a quid.

There is already a movement on Twitter that has been started by myself and a fellow STFC fan, #dicaniofund .
It seems to have attracted some interest, and we're trying to find a suitable method for folks to make donations. Sam Morshead said that the Adver may co-ordinate it all for us IF there is a significant ground swell of people wanting to do it. BBC Wiltshire have also already been contacted to see if they will support us with some Airtime...more info soon..Chris

It's taken you how many games to write this reply to me.27? Apart from the last 3 games they have been shiit so don't tell me any different, but I am mighty pleased with the form they are showing, after all they are doing what we signed them for scoring goals. Only a few of us believed and still believe we will win the league even with or without those two. First game I have missed today for a few years disappointed but very pleased they both scored. Well done for paolo for sticking with them after all under any other manager they would have been booted out on loan. As the old saying goes Onwards and UPWARDS Eieieio to the bookies we will go
No problem but you have to give srikers time the same as Martin.

All good news though.

I wish I was more confident in saying we will win the league. Top 6 and in the mix. Sure we have a chance but lots can happen good and bad before May.

For now though great entertainment at the CG.
Next Saturday will be the test and we still have to play all the top sides away from home.

None of our players are shiit to me as long as they are playing for the red shirt and giving it their best. If they are not up to it PDC will move them on.

I don't do twitter and I suspect I'm not alone, but my tenner is here and waiting, why not see if the club are able to take donations over the phone via the ticket office, or a non premium rate number at the club, which would be even better. I'll go with the flow on what ever is decided. We need to show Black that we are prepared to do our bit as well.

Thank you sir! Apparently the 'nuts and bolts' side of what we want to do already exists within the STFC supporters trust!

Yeah get your point just wonder if piri piri and doss the toss would be scoring for fun if we waited for them?
Saying that willo/Collins work rate is second to none, and as fans that's what we want or I do.
But I was so excited with willo jc signing I was disappointed with there goal returns.
As I said a few thing paolo gets wrong and tons he gets right, some things he believes in which I don't such as the willo situation.
Off to eat more humble pie but I can tell you it's the sweetest taste ever

Looking forward to a trip to the seaside next Saturday and a real test against a team bang in form - a point will be a good return.

Some good news from the Cup as L. Orient now need a replay and are still in the JPT so we'll be a lot fresher than them for our re-arranged date - which I believe will now have to be March with Colchester being February.
.
Sheff Utd are still in it (and beat the Pox) although shame that wasn't a draw as well so a distraction for them.
.
Brentford drew - so another fixture for them....and probably 2 more.
.
MK Dons drew and very much as per Brentford probably 4th Rd required as well.
.
...and Bournemouth - a home replay v Wigan 3 days after they play us!!..yet another nice distraction for them!!

Outside of the two to be re-arranged we have only 2 Tuesday night matches - last season we were playing 2 games a week almost all Feb, March and April - time to fully prepare, repair the knocks and recover the energy levels....if we can't finish top 2 now it will be pretty darn close!!

LR and SAPFan have contacts at The Adver, they may be able to help. The only problem as I see it is how the money goes in, so we don't break the rules especially around the embargo nonsense, but I dare say somebody will have a solution to get around it. Hopefully. Shame our manager didn't say all this before and we could have had a collection yesterday with that decent crowd and the money would have been there for Monday.

I'm with you both on this. LR is right. The way to generate money is to keep winning, preferably in style. It might even get the arses of some Premier League clubs' "supporters" off their sofas and onto seats at the County Ground. You never know, they might discover that actively supporting a football club is more rewarding than saying they support one that in reality is no more to them than a picture in the corner of the room.
.
I would probably donate a tenner to the pot, although given the weaIth behind the club I have to say that the whole idea is pretty surreal. Whether we like it or not, the fact remains that cash is tight because a substantial playing budget has been spent already. It's marvellous that PDC is offering to top up the budget with his own cash, even if it does come across as a bit of emotional blackmail.
I don't believe that he will need to dip into his own pocket, as I am sure the club will want to maintain the current momentum and find a way of funding his requirements. But Black will certainly want to draw a line somewhere - and who can blame him?

But as he says as he says with the lower teams coming to the County Ground now, it might be best to continue with the £20 per adult plus kid for a quid. But the club must learn to market itself with adverts in all the papers within 20 miles of the town, and promotions in some of the local shops as a minimum.[/p][/quote]I'm with you both on this. LR is right. The way to generate money is to keep winning, preferably in style. It might even get the arses of some Premier League clubs' "supporters" off their sofas and onto seats at the County Ground. You never know, they might discover that actively supporting a football club is more rewarding than saying they support one that in reality is no more to them than a picture in the corner of the room. . I would probably donate a tenner to the pot, although given the weaIth behind the club I have to say that the whole idea is pretty surreal. Whether we like it or not, the fact remains that cash is tight because a substantial playing budget has been spent already. It's marvellous that PDC is offering to top up the budget with his own cash, even if it does come across as a bit of emotional blackmail.

Lots of supporters feeling the same - we were discussing a 'fund' during the drive back yesterday.

The Stratton Bank is a nice idea, but probably would divert funds away than if people just went to the open stands. The suggestion of bringing a friend to the game who might not go otherwise, and paying £20, is probably the best for the club.

Of course it wouldn't ring-fence and show the initiative, as no-one would know what the gate might have been otherwise, which a fund or opening the Stratton Bank could.

A name for the fund/initiative? How about the Loan Rangers/Arrangers?

I don't do twitter and I suspect I'm not alone, but my tenner is here and waiting, why not see if the club are able to take donations over the phone via the ticket office, or a non premium rate number at the club, which would be even better.

Thank you sir! Apparently the 'nuts and bolts' side of what we want to do already exists within the STFC supporters trust!

The only other manager that readily springs to mind prepared to put his money and belief into his club, Barry Fry at Peterborough, and he bought the club. Absolute nutter, but lovely man, ring any bells ?
LR and SAPFan have contacts at The Adver, they may be able to help. The only problem as I see it is how the money goes in, so we don't break the rules especially around the embargo nonsense, but I dare say somebody will have a solution to get around it. Hopefully. Shame our manager didn't say all this before and we could have had a collection yesterday with that decent crowd and the money would have been there for Monday.
You can never resist the opportunity to have a go at Pdc eh? It doesn't matter if there is no validity to do so you'll still have a pop! Disappointing but also rather predictable the guy offers to lump in £30k of his own dosh and you've still got to knock him. So if he had have mentioned it before then you'd have co-ordinated the collection organised a bank account etc and got the whole ball rolling- yeah right!

Now now Den don't get too carried away sure they've both done well recently but they both missed sitters yestday as well Collins in particular when he was put in on the edge of the box facing a yawning goal and he shot tamely at the keeper -still a long way to go for those 20 goals each lol

Looking forward to a trip to the seaside next Saturday and a real test against a team bang in form - a point will be a good return.
Haha! You know as well as I do mate that all good strikers miss sitters. Chalky White is a Town legend but he missed shedloads of chances and so did his partner Big Dunc. There are only 2 players in Town history that I can remember having the utmost faith in to put chances away - one is Don Rogers and the other is Charlie Austin and even they missed a few. The teamwork and service to our front two have improved immeasurably in recent weeks. I have no idea of the stats but I reckon our strikers' goals to chances ratio would compare pretty well with all our forwards down the years.

As for the Fans I recall in the 70's when a co-operative was formed fan/local business people raised money againg cannot remeber how much but in a way it helped.
As for SWP it's about time he got off his **** in London and try to do a job that he is getting paid for.
If my remarks are wrong and he has done something????
Then relate to the fans no more negative interviews etc,is funny has gone vey quiet after the Pompey Game.If JW had been here he would have been shouting from the roof tops for support from fans and board.
Plus this Board meeting again no response from SWP.
Hope again I'm wrong and he was able to raise funds for Pdc however even my Wife said don't like the sound of him

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL TOWN FANS
ps if your over in the summer come up and see us in Port de Soller you takethe old train and then tram car from Palma

They may have missed sitters, but it's a confidence game and they will be burying more and more as they settle. Williams for me is the next big thing at our club. Give the guy a 'real' chance to bed in and he will begin to destroy defences.

Have to say Malkym - I think you read that one totally wrong...it was a pure timing comment given the big crowd as opposed to having a pop, especially as it is 2 weeks until the next home game.

If you read it all Wiz is fully behind it all.

Sorry matey but you totally missed the sentiment on that one.

My view might not be popular but I think that the 65% wage cap rule is for the benefit of the game. Clubs including us should have to deal with the consequences of overstepping the mark. If a kid drops their ice cream after they been told several times to look after it do you go and buy them another. (just to illustrate my view not to patronise). I think there is room for the club to sort things and Paolo now has a clear priority. (Hollands and Martinles so Bostock) That's my head talking. Of course if a fund really does materialise I'll end up putting something in because I hate to see kids cry. (that is patronising)

The cheap Stratton bank idea will never get off the ground I'm afraid. Offering cheap tickets would divert the on the day tickets in the side stands not bring bought and everybody going for the cheaper Stratton tickets. That would actually lose the club money even with a larger attendance. Even offering a season ticket holder an extra 'bring a friend' for £10 or £15 would just mean most people would find a season ticket holder to get their seat instead of paying full price as normal.

My original suggestion was just an improvement on throwing money into a bucket as in addition it would increase interest and probably sell some extra burgers.

I suppose to mix the two..... Just do a normal collection. Whatever money is 'raised' is used to buy tickets for a particular game. Those are then given away to people. Groups such as 6th forms..... Local amateur football clubs.. Etc etc. That then means -

*anybody can donate any amount as opposed to a full ticket price

*the club get the extra money!

*The ground will have a larger crowd that day

*those 'visitors' may get a taste and come back

*the 'visitors' will spend extra money on refreshments and programmes.

*Would be a great press release.... 'Supporters pay for free tickets for local community' or suchlike

*PDC gets his money, gets the players he wants, gets us promoted, follows that with taking us into the premier league.

And when that final point happens I would like credit for the idea that masterminded it!! I can see it now, telling my grand kids how I personally got Swindon into the premier league :-p

My money is here and waiting and the response so far from Town fans has been brilliant with many willing to donate. What we need now is a cunning plan to put the idea into action and I hope some of the others on here with possible contacts with media can get this up and running. As I said yesterday I would rather put money in the pot than lose players like Aden Flint who has a massive future in the game and hopefully it will be with STFC. Paolo Di Canio is a total one off and very rarely will a manager like this come by ever again and we at Swindon are so very fortunate to be enjoying the ride on the Di Canio Express and his management. The guy is devoted to Swindon Town and it shows with the picture rights waiver to get players treated in Rome and now the statement that he will fund players from his own pocket. This man wants success and he can probably sense that we really are so close to another attempt on a promotion season and the Town are flying at the moment and it appears finances could throw a spanner in the works. We the fans can do our bit and I will be watching, waiting and listening over the next few days to make my donation.

Thank you sir! Apparently the 'nuts and bolts' side of what we want to do already exists within the STFC supporters trust!

LR and SAPFan have contacts at The Adver, they may be able to help. The only problem as I see it is how the money goes in, so we don't break the rules especially around the embargo nonsense, but I dare say somebody will have a solution to get around it. Hopefully. Shame our manager didn't say all this before and we could have had a collection yesterday with that decent crowd and the money would have been there for Monday.
You can never resist the opportunity to have a go at Pdc eh? It doesn't matter if there is no validity to do so you'll still have a pop! Disappointing but also rather predictable the guy offers to lump in £30k of his own dosh and you've still got to knock him. So if he had have mentioned it before then you'd have co-ordinated the collection organised a bank account etc and got the whole ball rolling- yeah right! Please don't be expected tj be taken seriously with making a cheap shop comment like that.
Have to say Malkym - I think you read that one totally wrong...it was a pure timing comment given the big crowd as opposed to having a pop, especially as it is 2 weeks until the next home game.
.
If you read it all Wiz is fully behind it all.
---.
Sorry matey but you totally missed the sentiment on that one.
Sap not saying Wiz isn't behind it or backing the idea but IMO he's had a bit of a downer on Pdc for awhile now. My main point was that even if Pdc had mentioned it earlier there probably still wouldn't have been time to set up all the things you and others have suggested - can it be done without endangering the wage cap etc How do you collect the money and can those donating be sure their money ends up where it should.

BTW good luck with your plan to get the deaf mutes in the Arkells singing from the same hymn sheet as the Town end. I reckon you have to put on a bandsman uniform, stand up and wave a baton at them before the majority of them start warbling :)

Malkym,

The ONLY problem I have ever had with our manager is his public, name,shame,blame approach, and I'm not alone. That is my ONLY gripe. NO, I have not had a downer on him at all. If I had I would hardly have been supporting Collins and Williams to come good, my prior stance was it would all come good in the New Year, they beat me to it by a few games, and I'm very pleased they did. I am more than happy with that and paid for two others yesterday and more than happy to do so, my treat. I would say that it is you who still have the downer on the players mentioned as you once more had a pop even earlier on this thread.
Right, too much said and perhaps mis understood, but the fact remains had the man stated this earlier we just may have been a few days in front with all of this as a decision has to be made about Hollands on Monday, and my wish was for the money to be available to meet that deadline. I do hope that now you can see my forward intentions which I consider to be for the good of many.

My thanks to other posters for their consideration and support, I just hope we can ALL band together and do something constructive to help the man as our owner and chairman seem to be speechless right now. I have no apprehension as to where the money will go as I trust the souls concerned. Totally.

A 5-0 win against the league leaders... Crap team? I think it's Bournemouth that have just found a bit of form actually, and wouldn't want you getting carried away with it. Three sided ground in the middle of nowhere, sounds just like Oxford to me. You might have a bit of money behind you now but you're still a small club, so enjoy this little spell of success rather than gloating. See you next week, 1500 town fans coming down to Boscombe should at least make it a big day for you, and will at least bring the gate over the usual 6-7 thousand.

As for Ritchie being worth 200 million, of course not, but he is worth far more than the paltry amounts Bournemouth have been willing to pay in the past. Swindon aren't a massive club by any means but don't talk drivel, and as for Pompey in disguise? You will never be as well supported a club as Pompey, fallen from grace in a big way but still bring in the crowds. Proper football club - wouldn't put their Dorset neighbours in anywhere near the same class.

Instead of stirring a week before the game, how about looking forward to what should be a well contested game between two teams in good form, and the pleasure of a capacity away support from some of the best travelling fans you'll ever see. Enjoy.

Now now Den don't get too carried away sure they've both done well recently but they both missed sitters yestday as well Collins in particular when he was put in on the edge of the box facing a yawning goal and he shot tamely at the keeper -still a long way to go for those 20 goals each lol

Looking forward to a trip to the seaside next Saturday and a real test against a team bang in form - a point will be a good return.
Haha! You know as well as I do mate that all good strikers miss sitters. Chalky White is a Town legend but he missed shedloads of chances and so did his partner Big Dunc. There are only 2 players in Town history that I can remember having the utmost faith in to put chances away - one is Don Rogers and the other is Charlie Austin and even they missed a few. The teamwork and service to our front two have improved immeasurably in recent weeks. I have no idea of the stats but I reckon our strikers' goals to chances ratio would compare pretty well with all our forwards down the years.
They may have missed sitters, but it's a confidence game and they will be burying more and more as they settle. Williams for me is the next big thing at our club. Give the guy a 'real' chance to bed in and he will begin to destroy defences.
Agree Williams will score many more goals for Town, hopefully this season.

For those that like a bet he is 66/1 with Blue Sq to finish top scorer paying out ew for 1st four. Now that McGoldrick has left Coventry helps as no more L1 goals for him.

I have just put on my second £10ew bet at 66/1

Trouble is it is on collision course with the Bournemouth express and something is gonna have to give. Enjoy this win coz it is tears for you lot next week. THERE IS ALONG WAY TO GO YET AND YOU DONT WON THE LEAGUE OFF THE BACK OF 4 WINS AGAINST CRAP TEAMS.
A 5-0 win against the league leaders... Crap team? I think it's Bournemouth that have just found a bit of form actually, and wouldn't want you getting carried away with it. Three sided ground in the middle of nowhere, sounds just like Oxford to me. You might have a bit of money behind you now but you're still a small club, so enjoy this little spell of success rather than gloating. See you next week, 1500 town fans coming down to Boscombe should at least make it a big day for you, and will at least bring the gate over the usual 6-7 thousand.

As for Ritchie being worth 200 million, of course not, but he is worth far more than the paltry amounts Bournemouth have been willing to pay in the past. Swindon aren't a massive club by any means but don't talk drivel, and as for Pompey in disguise? You will never be as well supported a club as Pompey, fallen from grace in a big way but still bring in the crowds. Proper football club - wouldn't put their Dorset neighbours in anywhere near the same class.

Instead of stirring a week before the game, how about looking forward to what should be a well contested game between two teams in good form, and the pleasure of a capacity away support from some of the best travelling fans you'll ever see. Enjoy.
Yes you are quite right, we do indeed only have 3 stands (at the moment).So tell me, how often do you use that 4th stand or yours.???. And do you rip away supporters off for £25 to sit in those crap seats as well.???. 1500 fans coming next week, really.????? That will be 300 locked out then since you only got 1200 tickets, but hey, the more that turn up to witness a good hiding for Swindle Town the sweeter it will be. Ref Pompey, no decent fan wants to see another club go down the pan so lighten up a bit or is the preasure getting to you already.????.

Thank you sir! Apparently the 'nuts and bolts' side of what we want to do already exists within the STFC supporters trust! So we're trying to get some contact details for someone that might be able to help! Also, I've just see that BBC Wiltshire are gonna talk about the fans fund at 7am tomorrow. Also if anyone with any Adver contacts thinks they might be able to get us some print. Go for it! ;)
The only other manager that readily springs to mind prepared to put his money and belief into his club, Barry Fry at Peterborough, and he bought the club. Absolute nutter, but lovely man, ring any bells ?
LR and SAPFan have contacts at The Adver, they may be able to help. The only problem as I see it is how the money goes in, so we don't break the rules especially around the embargo nonsense, but I dare say somebody will have a solution to get around it. Hopefully. Shame our manager didn't say all this before and we could have had a collection yesterday with that decent crowd and the money would have been there for Monday.
You can never resist the opportunity to have a go at Pdc eh? It doesn't matter if there is no validity to do so you'll still have a pop! Disappointing but also rather predictable the guy offers to lump in £30k of his own dosh and you've still got to knock him. So if he had have mentioned it before then you'd have co-ordinated the collection organised a bank account etc and got the whole ball rolling- yeah right! Please don't be expected tj be taken seriously with making a cheap shop comment like that.
Have to say Malkym - I think you read that one totally wrong...it was a pure timing comment given the big crowd as opposed to having a pop, especially as it is 2 weeks until the next home game.
.
If you read it all Wiz is fully behind it all.
---.
Sorry matey but you totally missed the sentiment on that one.
Sap not saying Wiz isn't behind it or backing the idea but IMO he's had a bit of a downer on Pdc for awhile now. My main point was that even if Pdc had mentioned it earlier there probably still wouldn't have been time to set up all the things you and others have suggested - can it be done without endangering the wage cap etc How do you collect the money and can those donating be sure their money ends up where it should.

BTW good luck with your plan to get the deaf mutes in the Arkells singing from the same hymn sheet as the Town end. I reckon you have to put on a bandsman uniform, stand up and wave a baton at them before the majority of them start warbling :)
Yep understand that and all the difficulties but just think that it was a misinterpretation on this particular point hence it just looked a bit out of place given our new 'Live and Let Live' approach to life. :-)

The cheap Stratton bank idea will never get off the ground I'm afraid. Offering cheap tickets would divert the on the day tickets in the side stands not bring bought and everybody going for the cheaper Stratton tickets. That would actually lose the club money even with a larger attendance. Even offering a season ticket holder an extra 'bring a friend' for £10 or £15 would just mean most people would find a season ticket holder to get their seat instead of paying full price as normal.

My original suggestion was just an improvement on throwing money into a bucket as in addition it would increase interest and probably sell some extra burgers.

I suppose to mix the two..... Just do a normal collection. Whatever money is 'raised' is used to buy tickets for a particular game. Those are then given away to people. Groups such as 6th forms..... Local amateur football clubs.. Etc etc. That then means -

*anybody can donate any amount as opposed to a full ticket price

*the club get the extra money!

*The ground will have a larger crowd that day

*those 'visitors' may get a taste and come back

*the 'visitors' will spend extra money on refreshments and programmes.

*Would be a great press release.... 'Supporters pay for free tickets for local community' or suchlike

*PDC gets his money, gets the players he wants, gets us promoted, follows that with taking us into the premier league.

And when that final point happens I would like credit for the idea that masterminded it!! I can see it now, telling my grand kids how I personally got Swindon into the premier league :-p

Trouble is it is on collision course with the Bournemouth express and something is gonna have to give. Enjoy this win coz it is tears for you lot next week. THERE IS ALONG WAY TO GO YET AND YOU DONT WON THE LEAGUE OFF THE BACK OF 4 WINS AGAINST CRAP TEAMS.
A 5-0 win against the league leaders... Crap team? I think it's Bournemouth that have just found a bit of form actually, and wouldn't want you getting carried away with it. Three sided ground in the middle of nowhere, sounds just like Oxford to me. You might have a bit of money behind you now but you're still a small club, so enjoy this little spell of success rather than gloating. See you next week, 1500 town fans coming down to Boscombe should at least make it a big day for you, and will at least bring the gate over the usual 6-7 thousand. As for Ritchie being worth 200 million, of course not, but he is worth far more than the paltry amounts Bournemouth have been willing to pay in the past. Swindon aren't a massive club by any means but don't talk drivel, and as for Pompey in disguise? You will never be as well supported a club as Pompey, fallen from grace in a big way but still bring in the crowds. Proper football club - wouldn't put their Dorset neighbours in anywhere near the same class. Instead of stirring a week before the game, how about looking forward to what should be a well contested game between two teams in good form, and the pleasure of a capacity away support from some of the best travelling fans you'll ever see. Enjoy.
Yes you are quite right, we do indeed only have 3 stands (at the moment).So tell me, how often do you use that 4th stand or yours.???. And do you rip away supporters off for £25 to sit in those crap seats as well.???. 1500 fans coming next week, really.????? That will be 300 locked out then since you only got 1200 tickets, but hey, the more that turn up to witness a good hiding for Swindle Town the sweeter it will be. Ref Pompey, no decent fan wants to see another club go down the pan so lighten up a bit or is the preasure getting to you already.????.
There will be alot coming down just to have a nice day out as our fans do like each other...

1200 AWAY TICKETS...
THATS HOW BIG YOUR CLUB IS...
We wonted 3000 but you cant handle that can you
3000 Pikeys in Dorset, urgh no thanks. Bored with this now, but one last request, please dont leave your pony and trap in our nice new carpark, it upsets the neighbours. And no breaking into the carpark ticket machines for the loose change. Ta ta.

Matt Le Tiss was very complimentary about the Town and said several times during his reports that he was very impressed with Swindons performance.
He also made the comment that Town fans have a bit of a dilema as far as PDC is concerned. "They obviously want him to stay as he is doing so well but the more success he has with Swindon the more likely it will be that they will lose him to another club !
Cheers Devon Red....he looked quite impressed but couldn't hear his words
Same as you Sap, they don't turn the volume up in the legend. A lady iI sit near said he wasn't too happy before the game to cover our match, but after the game I couldn't hear what he said, but facial expressions told it's own story.

After yesterdays post match interview it would certainly rattle a few cages if our manager was to buy a stake in the club, just so he can pay some wages. First Class. I think he has certainly given Black something to think about, I'd still like to see Wray heading up a consortium to take over, now that would be interesting, at least he would associate with his public.

Never said I wanted another club to go down the pan and I certainly don't. We could have taken far more than 1200 down if more tickets were available, that's a fact. Here's a thought, don't start trying to wind up opposing fans unless you want a bit back! We're both doing well at the moment, difference is we've been through the mill enough to appreciate the good times rather than try and play the big time Charlie. Good luck next week to all decent Bournemouth fans who aren't idiots. You actually going to make it to the match or are you just one of the wind up merchants who poke fun from your armchair?

Ah, the joy of "banter"

4-0 thrashing, and yes we were crap even though vastly understrengthed on the day. The best thing to come out of that defeat was we sacked Groves and King Eddie returned. Since then 17(soon to be 18) unbeaten. Ironically Eddie's first game, 3-0 win over................ Yep you guessed it Tranmere.

Exactly, it is just banter so why get so uptight. Yep i have my ticket for North stand and looking forward to a cracking game either way. We have had more than our fair-share of hard times so no way big time charlies. We had many of your idiot fans on this site after our 4-0 drubbing at your place giving it the big one, but as i said it's just banter. I know many Swindon supporters and always have a good laugh with them whatever the result. Thats football, now calm down its still 6 days away.

Trouble is it is on collision course with the Bournemouth express and something is gonna have to give. Enjoy this win coz it is tears for you lot next week. THERE IS ALONG WAY TO GO YET AND YOU DONT WON THE LEAGUE OFF THE BACK OF 4 WINS AGAINST CRAP TEAMS.
A 5-0 win against the league leaders... Crap team? I think it's Bournemouth that have just found a bit of form actually, and wouldn't want you getting carried away with it. Three sided ground in the middle of nowhere, sounds just like Oxford to me. You might have a bit of money behind you now but you're still a small club, so enjoy this little spell of success rather than gloating. See you next week, 1500 town fans coming down to Boscombe should at least make it a big day for you, and will at least bring the gate over the usual 6-7 thousand.

As for Ritchie being worth 200 million, of course not, but he is worth far more than the paltry amounts Bournemouth have been willing to pay in the past. Swindon aren't a massive club by any means but don't talk drivel, and as for Pompey in disguise? You will never be as well supported a club as Pompey, fallen from grace in a big way but still bring in the crowds. Proper football club - wouldn't put their Dorset neighbours in anywhere near the same class.

Instead of stirring a week before the game, how about looking forward to what should be a well contested game between two teams in good form, and the pleasure of a capacity away support from some of the best travelling fans you'll ever see. Enjoy.
Yes you are quite right, we do indeed only have 3 stands (at the moment).So tell me, how often do you use that 4th stand or yours.???. And do you rip away supporters off for £25 to sit in those crap seats as well.???. 1500 fans coming next week, really.????? That will be 300 locked out then since you only got 1200 tickets, but hey, the more that turn up to witness a good hiding for Swindle Town the sweeter it will be. Ref Pompey, no decent fan wants to see another club go down the pan so lighten up a bit or is the preasure getting to you already.????.
Never said I wanted another club to go down the pan and I certainly don't. We could have taken far more than 1200 down if more tickets were available, that's a fact. Here's a thought, don't start trying to wind up opposing fans unless you want a bit back! We're both doing well at the moment, difference is we've been through the mill enough to appreciate the good times rather than try and play the big time Charlie. Good luck next week to all decent Bournemouth fans who aren't idiots. You actually going to make it to the match or are you just one of the wind up merchants who poke fun from your armchair?

Ah, the joy of "banter"
Exactly, it is just banter so why get so uptight. Yep i have my ticket for North stand and looking forward to a cracking game either way. We have had more than our fair-share of hard times so no way big time charlies. We had many of your idiot fans on this site after our 4-0 drubbing at your place giving it the big one, but as i said it's just banter. I know many Swindon supporters and always have a good laugh with them whatever the result. Thats football, now calm down its still 6 days away.
Fair enough, although strange you've given such a massive u-turn after starting all this is the first place!

Can't speak for any of our fans who might have been lording it over you on our site after the 4-0 win. If the shoe was on the other foot it certainly wouldn't have affected me, as I don't go on other teams forums.

Having had bad times should've shown you a bit of humility but I guess not. You clearly only came on here to wind people up, so why then claim we're getting uptight? I'm certainly not going to get upset because of some keyboard warrior from the south coast. It's what happens on the pitch that matters.

People....

When a bit of pond life from another club comes on here, do the opposite of what they want you to do.

Ignore them.

Simply do not take the bait and do not respond.

If everyone did that, he/she/it would soon get bored and sink back to the bottom of the pond.

May be us fans can also help with funding I'd have no qualm putting in a tenner or more and imagine if 5000 fans did that for Paolo. How about it STFC fans.

No. Don't get the buckets out. Instead of 5000 of us getting a tenner out.... How about 2000 of us pay for a mate to come along to a home game?!? They might even come back and there will be more of a crowd to get behind the team.
Good idea I'm up for that.

Hey SAP can you help get this off the ground with your contacts at the Adver?

The Shrews match would be a good one to target.

What about the club opening up Stratton Bank and let fans pay what they like min £5 to raise extra money.
Hi there folks,

I could ask and even extend the enquiry to those I know within the club...being honest, Shrewsbury may be too soon but lets ask and see what we get back.
...
I'm sure the Advertiser would allow us a thread to advertise the event.
...
We'd need voluntary stewards and those on the Stratton Bank (or whatever it is called these days) gates as we don't want it to cost the club out of the money we raise plus maybe...JUST maybe, Black would be willing to match what we raise?....shame we couldn't do it with the Town End as well really but complications over the season ticket seats there.

Need a catchy name though!!

Probably need to steer clear of things like Paolo's War Chest! :-)

Let's give it a go.
Everyone, You really do need to go along to the Shrewsbury game as my grandson will be leading the team out.

It will be his tenth birthday present and he'll be wearing the new boots I bought for him.

His name is Ben Wollen and he is the grand-nephew of the great Terry Wollen, whose STFC career, was cut short (in 1963) by a crunching tackle from some dirty git who played for Notts County.

If you can chant "Mondeaux bought yer boots". That would be brilliant.

I''ll not be attending as I'll (probably) be laid up in a French hospital, with a fibre-optic camera up me jacksy.

In this particular situation, I'll not be saying "onward & upward".

Whether, or not, any money is collected is not as important as the show of support and commitment to OUR team as being demonstrated by both Paolo and the fans alike. What an all round team.
Another option is to send a cheque to STFC made out to Paolo DiCanio.

This will show him our support and go towards any money he has paid out for the loan players.

If he dosen't need it (the board cough up) just rip up the cheques.

How about charging Town fans £2 to leave at the usual 5 mins from time. That would make thousands £s. Or perhaps it would just be better to applaud the players off!

I've had doubts about him in the past, but this kind of commitment is second to none. There are so many players playing well and supporting each other, that when some have an off-day it shouldn't be too obvious. Next week is going to be the biggest test since Sheffield Utd.
May be us fans can also help with funding I'd have no qualm putting in a tenner or more and imagine if 5000 fans did that for Paolo. How about it STFC fans.
YEP GETTHEM BUCKETS OUT
No. Don't get the buckets out. Instead of 5000 of us getting a tenner out.... How about 2000 of us pay for a mate to come along to a home game?!? They might even come back and there will be more of a crowd to get behind the team.
Good idea I'm up for that.

Hey SAP can you help get this off the ground with your contacts at the Adver?

The Shrews match would be a good one to target.

What about the club opening up Stratton Bank and let fans pay what they like min £5 to raise extra money.
Hi there folks,

I could ask and even extend the enquiry to those I know within the club...being honest, Shrewsbury may be too soon but lets ask and see what we get back.
...
I'm sure the Advertiser would allow us a thread to advertise the event.
...
We'd need voluntary stewards and those on the Stratton Bank (or whatever it is called these days) gates as we don't want it to cost the club out of the money we raise plus maybe...JUST maybe, Black would be willing to match what we raise?....shame we couldn't do it with the Town End as well really but complications over the season ticket seats there.

Need a catchy name though!!
.
Probably need to steer clear of things like Paolo's War Chest! :-)
...
Let's give it a go.
Everyone, You really do need to go along to the Shrewsbury game as my grandson will be leading the team out.

It will be his tenth birthday present and he'll be wearing the new boots I bought for him.

His name is Ben Wollen and he is the grand-nephew of the great Terry Wollen, whose STFC career, was cut short (in 1963) by a crunching tackle from some dirty git who played for Notts County.

If you can chant "Mondeaux bought yer boots". That would be brilliant.

I''ll not be attending as I'll (probably) be laid up in a French hospital, with a fibre-optic camera up me jacksy.

In this particular situation, I'll not be saying "onward & upward".
I was at the game when Terry Wollen had his leg broken, standing with my dad in "The Enlcosure", I think it was called then. We were close to where the players entered and left the pitch, and I can remember the Notts County player, Tony Sheridan I think, walking past us and going down the tunnel after being sent off.

Would be great if the adver and BBC Wilts could keep a tally, updating the figure throughout the month. Transfer window shuts in 25 days or so.

I SAID IT BECAUSE OF WHAT HE SAID NOT WHAT HE HAS DONE

Darren Very well done. I was trying to have a debate with you about the fact that I find your constant criticism of Paolo's transfer record to be a nonsense. As Old Town indicated in "his" opinion of player values. It was my contention that you have been spooting nonsense for weeks.

No doubt you were one of those booing JP McGovern yesterday? Despite him being an excellent servant of this club.

I congratulate you for being able to enter into a healthy debate. Very well done.

i would not like to think we will be taking on B'muff without our loanees whose time ran out on Saturday. Powell has said he wants Hollands future sorted by tomorrow, so expect us to extend for a month at least until something more definite and long term is sorted. Same goes for Martin.

Bostock I think might take a little longer and probably is not essential for the next game or two.

Good news the little Welsh man has jumped ship at Donnie, Colchester dominated them on Saturday, good goal but a lucky win. Doesn't it make you feel good we have a manager with a bit more loyalty.

Personally if I can't get tickets in the away end I won't go to a game, just doesn't seem right, however if more tickets were offered to away fans this wouldn't happen.

Eddie, before you get on your high horse once again, I don't think saying you're not Millwall was an insult - jusat saying that Bournemouth's not known as a club where people risk getting their heads kicked in on a regulars basis. That's a good thing right? Unless you're one of the football factory wannabes who think violence and football go hand on hand.

That is a real pain, but at least if the worst comes to the worst you could sit with Bournemouth and try and keep quiet, as others have said they may do. Wonder if tickets will be sold on the day though? You'd imagine so but it's not a guarantee. Other than that you'll just have to try and sample the delights Bournemouth has to offer, which to be honest isn't a lot in this weather. Seaside towns have a particular bleakness in winter that's quite off putting.

Politely, i would say dont bother trying to get into home areas. It will definately be sold out so wont be pay on the day. Bournemouth operate a data-base system whereby you MUST have a purchase history with the club. Why would anyone want to go in the home section and sit quietly ???, it just aint football without cheering on your team. But good luck anyway. May the BEST team win.!!!!!!!!!

For once I completely agree with you - as said earlier on I've never sat in the home areas at an away game cause it holds no attraction for me. Also I don't have your optimism that the ground will be completely sold out but hoping it is, as should make for a great atmosphere.
