Should be a cracker today. First goal will be very important. If Town can get in front and make Bournemouth chase the game, then we could come away with a huge three points. Fingers and toes crossed...

Greetings from Swanage - so near yet so far when you're without a ticket. I've been in the 'wrong' ends before and it ain't much fun so decided against that! I bet the atmosphere will be terrific and I am soooo jealous...my own fault for not getting a ticket at an earier stage. I've lived down this way since 1978 - most of it in B'mth - but never wavered from supporting Swindon. Hope it's a good game with the best possible result for 'the town'. Best regards to all. BR

Totally agree with you Stigger. Ferry has been awesome for us recently and I simply don't buy into the argument that he cannot start away from home. We all saw the impact he had when he replaced Miller in the game against Portsmouth a couple of weeks ago. We are a smoother, slicker side when Ferry plays. Miller is slow and predictable. His lack of pace means he always wants to stay goal side of the ball and most of his passes go back or sideways. He offers very little going forward - you'll never see him run forawrd with or without the ball. Ferry is a different player to that of a couple of seasons ago. He does more running than any other player and tracks back/tackles as much as anyone. Can anyone else explain why he has to settle for a place on the bench ??

Miller and Holland too similar to play together IMO, Danny is the better player and i believe our best pairing would be with Ferry, but as we are away from the CG, Paolo must be looking to contain them and bring Simon on in the second half, like he did against Pompey.

Just had a text from a mate that Cleggy from the football league show is there, so the game should get some coverage tonight.

well i certainly can't and i have said exactly what you have, Ferry today runs more than anyone and does plenty of tackling and hassling and harrying so like you for me i don't buy the argument that he should not start away.

Dare I say it, but with Miller in the middle I can see this as containment, a cautious start not giving away any midfield ground. The wingers will have to work harder to get the ball forward as less will come from Miller than it would from Ferry.

Luckily our twelth man calamity James lived up to his name and delivered a bit of help for our well deserved equalizer.

I think over the 90 probably a draw was fair, but over the last 20 perhaps we had our best spell and should have nicked it. We will never know as so many passes went array with standing water. I think if it was a draw at half time the ref may have abandoned then, but in fairness he seemed a decent ref and at least we haven't got to play it again. We don't need a fixture backlog with two games already re scheduled. Roll on next weekend Shrews at CG and the despicable Turner man.

Absolutely Darren, Roberts wasn't very effective and when Rafa came on combined with Ferry we started to create some opportunities and that pressure resulted in a well deserved equaliser.
Can't believe how a guy whose confidence should be sky high after scoring for fun recently contrived to miss a wide open goal from six yards after he'd done all the hard work.

Paolo was probably both relieved and elated to get a point as his scarf to the sky and pumping his chest to the faithful proved. His perhaps one tactical error was not bringing on rdv and Ferry earlier but hey today was certainly a point gained rather than two points lost.

You fail to note that Roberts laid on a peach for Collins and also didn't have the bonus of playing with Ferry. Miller is a different player altogether. I may have not been there, but the radio commentary was very complementary towards Roberts in the first half, and by all accounts he put in several superb passes that got thwarted by our guys being too early, too late or just plain stuck in the mud.
However, one half of your toilet WC pair did manage to score a blinder to even the match. Game on against Shrews.
Not many will get a point at Bornmuff this season, so a job well done, even according to their supporters.

Navarro and Miller are past their sell-by dates, and Hollands/Ferry is the combo that should be out there as much as possible. It sounds as though Roberts maintained his recent improvement in form, but Raffa is still the better option: he tracks back, tackles and scores (where Roberts does none of the above). Too bad Collins missed an absolute sitter, but a credit to the lads to battle back in dreadful conditions. Doncaster scoring the winner in added time was a great pity, but we are still in touch, and this was a valuable away point.

But can we please start with FERRY and RDV next game please Paolo ??
Roberts set up a sitter in the first half for Collins, you know, that BIG miss, and he also played through some good balls for the front men. Second half very little got played down the left flank for him to get onto. Was that a tactic discussed at half time to take the focus off our left ? and then bring Raffa on to do the biz ?

Yes, I like Raffa as well , but Roberts to be fair is now improving game on game.
Absolutely Darren, Roberts wasn't very effective and when Rafa came on combined with Ferry we started to create some opportunities and that pressure resulted in a well deserved equaliser.
Can't believe how a guy whose confidence should be sky high after scoring for fun recently contrived to miss a wide open goal from six yards after he'd done all the hard work.

Paolo was probably both relieved and elated to get a point as his scarf to the sky and pumping his chest to the faithful proved. His perhaps one tactical error was not bringing on rdv and Ferry earlier but hey today was certainly a point gained rather than two points lost.
You fail to note that Roberts laid on a peach for Collins and also didn't have the bonus of playing with Ferry. Miller is a different player altogether. I may have not been there, but the radio commentary was very complementary towards Roberts in the first half, and by all accounts he put in several superb passes that got thwarted by our guys being too early, too late or just plain stuck in the mud.
However, one half of your toilet WC pair did manage to score a blinder to even the match. Game on against Shrews.
Not many will get a point at Bornmuff this season, so a job well done, even according to their supporters.

I'm not going to attempt to comment on how Roberts played today as I didn't see the game. I just feel that if it's De Vita v Roberts for a starting berth, there's no contest. De Vita is the more creative, the more energetic and the hungrier of the two. He also wins a lot of headers, which is pretty useful when we are using the modern tactic of launching the ball from the penalty area to the touchline. I have a feeling that Roberts will come into his own towards the end of the season when the conditions are better.

Considering the conditions today it was a great game. Bournemouth played some decent football and will take points off of most teams. We had the chances in the first half and created more near the end of the game. Only a brilliant save by Wes kept us in it, otherwise 0 - 2 down that would have been it.
The ref did well today and took the conditions into account with some of the tackles flying in. Nathan was lucky not to be booked in the first few minutes ans was getting stuck in to their winger.
Happy with a point we just need to nick a couple of wins at the likes of Tranmere, MK Dons, Doncaster and we will win the league.
Glad to see Williams score as it keeps my hopes up for him to finish top L1 scorer to collect my bet @ 66/1

Aaaaggghhh! I'll repeat what I said last week - all good strikers miss good chances. Quite often it comes about because they have a knack of often getting into the right positions (which Collins does because he takes a gamble and he attacks the ball). Not being afraid to miss is important too. The bogroll two will see us through!

Jockster,

All hilarity to one side, yes I agree Ferry is the best we have by a country mile and then some, and for me now Bostock has gone he must be played with Hollands. The two work together very well.

I also agree that RDV, who has always been played as a forward before he came here has a natural killer instinct in front of goal and is more creative on the wing, BUT, and its a big but, I firmly believe Roberts will come good. He has shown in the last few games his confidence is returning. I think he and RDV are horses for courses, they both have good elements of play and TBH I still think its a matter of tinkerman between the two. Shame Collins missed the sitter, but I've just seen plenty of others missed on MoTD, so he is not alone. Sometimes its impossible to see how the ball doesn't go in, but it happens to other teams besides ours. I agree its frustrating but its part of the game.
With that I'll bid you a pleasant good night, and its only football, we'll get there I'm sure.

BBC website describes us and Bournemouth as "play-off rivals". I don't think so. We are promotion rivals. Do they seriously think both clubs are going to spend the rest of the season trying get into the play-offs? The target has to be the top two unless and until it becomes impossible. If it turns out we're not good enough, obviously we'll take the consolation opportunity offered by the play-offs. But I'd hate to think that they are the limit of our ambitions.

Let's not forget that this is 2013 not 1913 and its now a squad game
.
There is no way you can simply name the same XI for 50 odd games
.
As it has been clearly noted and stated by Howe himself that the weather almost made it impossible to play football
.
Ferry is a playmaker and with the conditions as they were had he started he may have been ineffective due to the conditions dictating play
.
PdC might have thought this and thought why risk Ferry getting injured (more likely in poor conditions) in a game where he may not be effective
.
I would rather Ferry on the bench in that case rather tha him miss 3, 4 or 5 matches coming up where he could really make a difference
.
Also the other thing is we are starting to enter a period of Tues-Sat-Tues-Sat games again and we know that is draining
.
So it's great that we have options to keep us fresh
.
I have no issue with us rotating between RDV and Roberts, Williams Collins and Martin and Ferry Hollands and Miller
.
We have had this complaint about PdC over rotating since he arrived but one person has been proven to be right - PdC!
.
We have been the most sucessful team in the entire Football League and believe 3rd if the Premiership is added!
.
You would have thought after nearly 100 games which have seen us win over 60 of them people would start to trust PdC that he knows his players and what will work in each game
.
Yes he gets it wrong sometimes - luckily for us thought that is very rare

London hate to say it but you took the words right out of my mouth!

No player can start every fixture in the modern game. The pace of play is just to physically demanding.

We all agree Si Ferry is our best midfielder and personally I'd always pick Raffa over Roberts. (Just my preference). The pitch is a quagmire and the manager decides to save there legs. Seems eminently sensible to me.

We are 7 points off top with a game in hand and 20 left. Many games at home against teams in the bottom half.

Well done Paolo on your selection, well done the players for their performance, a good point on a water polo pitch and especially top draw the red army on a cold and miserable day.

Roberts took his chance to start games after he replaced Raffa when he was having a stinker against Pompey. Both good players on their day, competition is what they need to push each other. Not that bothered which one starts at the moment if they both show desire and commitment, you know one or other will come on to replace the other or Ritchie, we seem to have a core of 14 regulars at the moment and it's nice to know we have players on the bench that would get into most teams in this division.

Swindon comfortably the best team we've seen at the Goldsands all season - thought your fans were great too. Fair result from a highly entertaining game which could have been a classic, had the elements not intervened. Realistically, I believe the playoffs are the best Bournemouth can hope for spring (which, bearing mind the shambles we were back in early October, is a minor miracle), but I can certainly see Swindon challenging the likes of Tranmere and Doncaster for automatic promotion.

I disagree Mate. You saw 2 capable teams that could both challenge for promotion.

Sadly the weather tried to do its best to spoil it but both sides made it a great game.

Lots of games to play and points to win and lose. I can see why you have a good unbeaten record and have to say I thought Swindon's fitness in the final quarter helped us.

It's taken a while but we are at the point PdC and Wray wanted at the start where we have the right number of first teamers competing to play week in week out
.
We then have Troy, Storey and Louis Thompson should any become injured or suspended and adding them to the bench doesn't make it look suddenly weak either (Yes I know Troy is out but principle is the same)

Swindon were by far the best team to have visited DC so far this season. There had been a lot of talk from both sets of supporters about how 1 team or other was gonna get tonked etc etc.

What we saw yesterday was 2 very evenly matched & equally committed teams who produced some great football in pretty poor conditions and both teams should be applauded for that.
I believe that both teams will be right up there at the end of the season and would both grace the c/ship if promoted which i would like to see.
Well done to Swindon for showing determination right to the end when they got a deserved draw. The game itself was quite comical really with so many errors from both teams due to the poor playing conditions but very enjoyable nevertheless. I thought PDC was gonna end up on his arse on the touchline the way he was jumping up & down, but hey i guess he adds to the entertainment.

If we can get 5 or 6 wins we will win the league, tough but possible. Important we keep winning at home, and that all fans give full support to Paolo and the team.

PDC needs all the help he can get from us and another 9K plus crown against Shrewsbury will show the Board that the fans are behind the club
Hope that Trust will respond to the press/radio.

As I understand it, the kitty before last weekend was around £9.5k ish and from what was on here in the week it now stands at around £10k ish so around £500 raised without any problem or BIG ask. i dare say if we had a full blooded appeal it would grow a lot bigger a lot quicker.
Our manager as yet has not added any money in as I think he suspects Benson will sign for a team this week and there fore we we get a fee. I can also see him perhaps looking for a mutual parting of the ways and looking for his contract to be paid up and then get a signing on fee where he goes, in which case we may dip out. Time will tell.

Thankfully all you wise old owls are too busy driving vans and turning computers on and off again - meaning that clueless top grade footballing professionals are left to pick the side most suitable for each individual set of circumstances... Ferry does not start the tougher games because he is physically weak, positionally unaware and frustratingly unable to follow simple team roles... this is a ninety minute game and a man whose (considerable) strength is unpicking tired and lower grade defences is being used to maximise just that impact...

I hope it continues but we do have a disproportionate number of fans who frankly deserve their Bodin / Ling / McLaughlin managerial dream teams...
Some common sense at last. We have a squad and a Manager who knows and understands the players better than anyone. PDC knows what he is doing, or appears to in my eyes anyway.

Agree in principal with North Stand's comments. What we should look at, rather than who is better than who, is the actual performance of those that were chosen.

I have seen no moans so I guess they played well !

Seen the Collins chance a few times now. Superb skill to set the chance up but on his wrong foot and slightly off balance. Ironically he probably would have scored if he had not made a decent contact !

Good result and a real chance to push on now. As mentioned above, win our home games (which we should) and 5-6 away and we will be very close.

Darren he did yesterday
S.m said its a drop in the ocean what's been give so far.
So in other words its not worth doing.
After all we signed both players without the fund, so I'm sure once our players leave
Benson
Rooneys
Cox
That will free up the funds to get them in for longer.
Also people forget we have a mega rich board who I'm sure will back him.
Then we do have paolos 30k even before we dig into funds.
After all I'm sure when he leaves for a bigger club he won't worry about yours/ everyone who has donated.
As for buckets the only buckets I want next Saturday is goals

Agree Grim all this hyperbole about coughing up dosh and generating a fighting fund is just that a load of exaggerated rhetoric. The evidence? The raising of the overwhelming massive total of £500 yes a whole 500 not 5000 or 50000.
So what is deduced from that? Either the majority of those who've said they'll chip in haven't or that most don't think there's any need to do so, I'm in that group.

NS, I have news for you. Football fans discuss team selection. Imagine what it would be like if we all just nodded sagely every time we saw the line-up. Imagine what it would be like if, over a post-match pint, nobody ever suggested that we might have done better if X had been brought on earlier in place Y, who was having a shocker.
.
You have actually made a good case on here today. Alas, you have undone that good work by showing your true colours. As Steve points out, the main purpose of your posts seems to be to belittle your fellow supporters. Most people might wonder what driving vans has got to do with being a football fan. Anyone who drives a van for a living would have every right to feel affronted by your arrogant snobbery.
.
If you find it so difficult to read other people's views without responding with pompous insults, why not just give this forum a wide berth and leave the way clear for others to have a lively and civilised discussion?

Reply to LR, dreamo and OTR:

Good points about rotation, RDV's stinker, horses for courses etc. I won't continue the argument. However, I think the case for rotation is weakened a little by the fact that several players get picked for every game and there is not much debate about it. Ritchie, for instance, runs his arse off in every game and always seems to recover in time for the next one. While we have 7 days between games I don't think that should be too much to ask of a professional athlete.

Diverting funds from a programme or food just doesn't make sense
.
In fact it is counter productive by actually taking money away
.
The RAF is not actually the clubs money!
.
It had a purpose once (thus he £10k I there - but don't forget that has been collected over the past decade!) and it may have purpose again (I really hope not) but while our current owners are worth 100s of millions it is not needed and all money should be pumped straight into the club
.
That is the real show of support by boosting the clubs actual income

I dont eat there anymore as the food at the ground is RANK and very VERY over priced...
Last time i had a pie in the TownEnd it felt like i had 20 pints of 3b"s..
Well one end did anyway....

The last time i went to bite into a burger from the Townend it bite me first!

Diverting funds from a programme or food just doesn't make sense
.
In fact it is counter productive by actually taking money away
.
The RAF is not actually the clubs money!
.
It had a purpose once (thus he £10k I there - but don't forget that has been collected over the past decade!) and it may have purpose again (I really hope not) but while our current owners are worth 100s of millions it is not needed and all money should be pumped straight into the club
.
That is the real show of support by boosting the clubs actual income

It might make me less fat.

LR,

If spending £x on a programme or £x on food will only raise so much profit because of raw material and seller costs, for the odd game the gross amount going into a bucket will realise more profit (100%) and go straight into the wages fund, and if that keeps Martin and Hollands here then that is where my money will go. BTW, I spoke directly with the Accounts Dept and my £25 went straight to them, and straight into the wages pot, direct, so our manager already has my £25 at his disposal, job done. Others make up there own minds and do their thing, as long as the club as a whole benefits then great. If others choose not to contribute then that is up to them, it is their choice and their prerogative, its a free country.

As goes our owners, they are not as wealthy as they once were due to the slump in prices on the Stock Exchange, that is basically what Black has said, his net worth is less and he has taken several hits to his portfolio, that is why he wants to sell the club and there is no further money for player purchases this season.

The best way of supporting the club is for anyone who can afford it to buy a season ticket. I'm not trying to suggest that anyone SHOULD do it but I'm sure there are people who do their sums and decide not to get one because don't see enough games to make it worthwhile. Just to be clear - I buy a season ticket because it gives me great value for money and it saves the inconvenience of buying a ticket for every game. I'm not sure I'd do it if I was likely to miss several games. But it does represent the best opportunity there is to give the club financial support. Any missed games could be seen as donating money to the club. It's admirable but bizarre to have bucket collections etc. Like LR and others, I can't see them making much difference. Supporting a club is first and foremost about being there with money and voice whenever you can.

Wiz your donation must be in a different format to the RAF
.
The RAF which is being promoted is run by TrustSTFC not Swindon Town FC
.
However I can't see how people can donate straight to the wage pot - as there is a 65% wage cap in place
.
Otherwise why can't Andrew Black make an anonymous donation and see us go over the limit?
.
Surely a donation simply become other income and if acceptable by the FL 65% can be "released" to the budget
.
I agree with Den though not just via becoming a new ST holder but increase support in any form you can
.
For example if you are a concession and can afford a full adult price - buy it at full adult price to give more income
.
Surely that is better than throwing money in a bucket which may never be used?
.
Ie 2 concession tickets are £38 and a £10 donation is pretty much on par with 2 adult tickets - but the cash is with STFC
.
Please note the IF YOU CAN part before anyone jumps down my throat about being a student or OAP and unable to afford the full £25 etc

Yes LR. I think we are both talking about people who already intend to make a donation. Wiz said he bought tickets for mates. Great stuff - possible domino effect there. More money in the coffers now and more in future too if his mates get hooked. It's up to everyone to choose how they do it. But, as you say, boosting gate money helps the cause re the 65% limit.

Den, The tickets were instead of the traditional, bottle of Scotch, or what ever. It was a great day out as we went up town, had a wander around, bought a few bits and pieces and then a meal. Its the way to go, two are at the Shrews game already, so a £50 knock on there and so it continues hopefully. The day was better because we won, but it was already a success, blokes out enjoying the day. It took a bit of persuasion but it was worth it. Once you get people into the habit hopefully it stays that way. Three on the day, another two coming and may bring mates plus my donation, its heading the right way.
