SWINDON TOWN: Miller and Ward to take temporary charge of Robins

Swindon Advertiser: Tommy Miller Tommy Miller

TOMMY Miller and Darren Ward will take charge of first-team affairs at the County Ground for the weekend visit of Preston, Swindon Town have confirmed.

Following the resignation of Paolo Di Canio and his backroom staff this week, the senior pros in the Town ranks have been asked to assume control while a new manager is sought.

A statement released by the Robins this evening said Miller and Ward will be placed "in temporary charge" of the club.

It read: "Swindon Town Football Club have today placed Tommy Miller and Darren Ward in temporary charge of first team affairs.

"The pair, who have the full support of the first team squad, have been consistent performers for Town this season and have the combined experience of around 1,000 professional games.

"Miller joined the club in the summer of 2012 from Huddersfield Town whilst Ward signed a permanent deal in the January 2013 transfer window from Championship side Millwall.

"A goalkeeping coach and fitness coach will be brought in to assist the duo on a temporary basis.

"This initiative has the full support of the prospective new owners, allowing them the opportunity to assess all of the applications that have been received in relation to the vacant managerial position and take a considered view for the long-term benefit of the Club.

"The Robins are at home to Preston North End this Saturday at The County Ground. Play your part this weekend and get behind the team at The County Ground. To purchase match tickets please call the STFC Box Office on 0871 876 1993."

Ward took to Twitter on Wednesday evening to pledge his commitment to the role.

He wrote: "Thanks for the great support and both Tommy and I will give our all to keep moving the club forwards."

This is brilliant. Firstly Ward will follow the hard work ethic and secondly it firmly opens the door for the Maestro to return.

For all those slagging off the boards various this is a brilliant move under the circumstances.

More importantly, who is on Tea trolley duty and they will still need someone to squeeze the half time oranges.

When did di matteo say he could take over?

Seriously, good luck to them. Not an easy situation for them to inherit.

A decision is made, and in the circumstances a good one.

I said last night ward will step up as a senior pro and am delighted that he and miller will run the show up to the weekend and probably beyond for a bit.

I have a sneeky feeling the players will produce this much mentioned "seige" mentality.

Hopefully only a two game measure and presumably will be assisted by Bodin and Pitman too if needed. Seems silly to waste any managerial experience (however slim) we have at the moment.

My preference when new owners get in would be:
1st - Paolo (however unlikely, surely worth a try)
2nd - Adkins (however unlikely, surely worth a try)
3rd - Alan Curbishley
4th - Nick Barmby
5th - Owen Coyle
..

12167th Newell
12168th Hockaday
12169th Buckle

If none of the first few possible then would prefer a younger manager/former player as a lot of the names mentioned on here recently just feel uninspiring due to their other failures.

Reduced prices too on Tuesday. Stands £20.00 for adults and town end £17.00. All other prices remain the same. Cheeseburger prices depend on which cheese and whether you prefer horse or crocodile with it.

I think the board will prefer your 12167,12168 and 12169th choice.they haven't given me much faith.Especially when Watkins came in and got the club back on the map and was honest to people.Getting the faith back and since then it's all gone up the wall.good luck to these guys but I'm not sure how much they know about Preston and the way the play

Tomcat 1944 says...

In a roundabout way I guess this actually confirms that all the back room staff did actually resign - have not seen it reported anywhere. Pleased with Ward / Miller they have lots of experience and hopefully will be able to 'tweak' the PDC style to suit the team. Would not be adverse to seeing them in the 'management' position until the end of the season - we must bear in mind however, the difficulty of managing and playing

This is a sensible move. What we need is continuity in methods and the overall fitness regime etc. Bodin isn't anywhere near the first team training and set-up as far as I can see, whereas Ward and Miller obviously are.

Creates a siege mentality that can only be a positive imho.

I'm not sure how this is going to work assuming both Miller and Ward will be starting on saturday, it only makes sense for training etc. who is going to be making decisions from the dugout.

I've said on another thread, I would like to see Ward made captain, but am not convinced the extra burden of management is going to help the cause, especially as neither do not have any experince of management

The fact that neither Bodin or Pitman were asked to fill the gap, speaks volumes of the new boards intentions.

BREAKING NEWS....I am in the know. The reason behind the FL delay in approving the takeover is due to a failure in the 'POT TO **** IN TEST'. In no reflection on the new consortium it can be revealed that the pot used to **** in has been taken home by a staff member on maternity leave and the FL are unable to say when the staff member will be back.

Regarding the ludicrous delay by the FL, cast your mind back, Matt Ritchie was sold to get some coffers in the bank and to meet the wage bill in January.

I see this as a positive as others have said they are involved day to day and what we do currently is working so that needs to carry on. Not sure about how works if both on pitch?? Also think players in cold should be brought back now so that we have a bench!! (miles injured as well now). Luke Rooney played 90 mins for developmental team i see no reason why this should not be chance for him to be back in squad. COYR!

Good news at last. If any of the players think that Wardy and Miller might be an easy tough they will have to think again. These two will expect as high a standard as PDC. What are the chances PDC will be back?

Hopefully only a two game measure and presumably will be assisted by Bodin and Pitman too if needed. Seems silly to waste any managerial experience (however slim) we have at the moment.

My preference when new owners get in would be:
1st - Paolo (however unlikely, surely worth a try)
2nd - Adkins (however unlikely, surely worth a try)
3rd - Alan Curbishley
4th - Nick Barmby
5th - Owen Coyle

12167th Newell

If none of the first few possible then would prefer a younger manager/former player as a lot of the names mentioned on here recently just feel uninspiring due to their other failures.
hmmmm..... I see you've got Newell a clear two places above Buckle. You got the hots for Newell or something??

Regarding the takeover delay and this loan fee, the fact that its taken at least an extra couple of days to sort makes me think it is one of the following:
-We are disputing with the club whether we should pay it (perhaps the Giles Coke situation where PDC said he had been injured and not treated correctly before he came) or
-There is a dispute between new board and Andrew Black over who should pay it

Either way it could drag on a little while if it is one of those.

More seriously, what is going to be done about the Paolo burgers in the catering franchise? Ward burgers, with a high fish, nut and sweet potato content?

I can see problems already between the two co-caretaker managers, as there are no grains in the caveman diet, which is bound to upset Windy Miller.

Maybe they are not permanent options to manage the club but either/both could have done the job Saturday.

I think this is the best short-term solution. Perhaps Miller will step out of the team on Saturday to watch from the side (as a substitute, of course). I'm really looking forward to the game.

Regarding the appointment of the 2 old players to take charge for next to games, is quite simply the most obvious choice given that the way we have played and trained will not be broken. You have to admire the way Ward conducts himself, with diet training etc, must be the same for Miller. Don't want someone coming and saying they are too fit and need days off from training.

Roll on the next 2 home games.

He will have studied the DVD's as usual and will pick out the weaknesses and advise Wardy and Co, may stop short of asking Wardy to take a phone onto the pitch though.

worryingly Buckle is now 2-1 favourite with Newell also 2-1 and then Jimmy Flloyd.
Whatever you do JED do not give us a second rate manager like Buckle you will have a mutiny on your hands. His track record is shocking. Yes your mates with him but we want a top class manager not a conference manager like Buckle or Newell.

I would put money on it being him if so be prepared for a drop down the league table as he has done at Luton -Rovers and couldnt get Torquay out of L2.

Adkins finally appeared on the betting odds leaderboard - 12/1 with Skybet. But that's the same price as Bodin, so doesn't mean much.

Is anyone actually betting on this market? Seems like we get a new favourite and big change in odds as soon as some old granny puts a pound on each way. Jimmy Floyd still favourite at 7/4.

Guys forget about Paolo while he liked to beat his chest and wave his scalf he walked on the eve of the clubs biggest game when the money Run out claming broken promises

You can promise your landlord a million times you will pay the rent but if you haven't got the money your f%*ked

People must realise now much financial s%%t this club is in even the fact the take over has been delayed is due to unpaid bills

Players will be sold in the summer its not going to be pretty for the rest of the season but this is what makes people stronger

I can't see another team overtaking town this year whatever the outcome we can't lose any players till the summer anyway

What will be will be in the close season
But we only have two options go bust or be in the championship

Agreed we won't have a figure head like Di Canio but don't forget we would have all been Danny Wilsons red and white army if we had won that play off game at wembley

Now let us Pray

Sometimes I think the bookies are just being crafty and chucking a name in at a fairly low (but not too low) price in the hope that punters will think "ah, somebody knows something, I'll have some of that". And even 7/4 favourite means they think it's more likely to be someone else than him!

Banbury's Physio Staff and backroom staff to cover in the intrim.

Remember, its not a long term thing, just 14 poxy games......

It'll steady the ship slightly and also remember

They wont make big changes, or start carrying on, they will just oversea and give advice when Wardy & Miller need it, act as a figure head, thats all.

Good idea on the Ward Miller temporary combo. I'm surprised if a new captain was being appointed then Ward wasn't given it, seems the obvious choice to me.

Sounds like good news then on the takeover as Jed is out on the lash, unless he's celebrating Hockaday ruling himself out.

Still feel the Paolo situation might have a further twist, despite todays departures. Can't believe he is really going to walk for a meaningless missed deadline.

he resigned Luton for personal reasons, just cannot imagine he would now take up a new position somewhere else in the next day or so.
OTR personal reasons could mean that is easier to travel from Lacock to Swindon than Lacock to Luton!? Smokescreen?

Dear

I've been having a really up and down week, the managers gone, the staff gone, money gone, us fans still here - and WE ARE TOP OF THE LEAGUE!!!!

Therefore, to keep our rudderless ship continuing steaming ahead, please can we have:

1. Three points saturday
2. The takover completed (would put that top but think more chance of saturday coming first, maybe 2nd, 3rd....
3. A permanent manager in as soon as possible - someone that can continue steering ahead, such as
R De matteo (blind optimism but thats all I have at the mo!)
N Adkins (am I still being blind??)
A Curbishley (found me glasses)
O Coyle (got them on)

Most of the others mentioned, Buckle, Newell, Hockaday (sorry fella!), Brown - please nooooooo (I may as well be blind)

Thank you.
PS - If you could find the money to sort our stadium situation too I promise I will hand deliver a lovely piece of cheese.

Because Dreamo has wanted to build a statue of PDC outside the County Ground for ages.

Brilliant move by the club! I love it! I just hope the Ward/Miller combo works, and then maybe could become permanent if it does. Even on a carrot juice diet, 34 is a bit old for a player to think about many more seasons running around in the mud ...... Much better to be in the dugout out of the rain, or à la PDC, in the stands.

So far as the betting odds are concerned, they reflect the amount of money being bet, not the real probabilities of who will be the new manager(s). Betfair (who?)don't have any more idea than us.

I'm so glad things are starting to get sorted, and that we're now all looking forward to Saturday again instead of nervously waiting for the next bit of bad news.

If those salaries etc are correct, you may know this for certain I do not, then by resigning their posts to STFC the club will save a fortune.

Enough to gain us another month payments to overheads and survival before this never ending takeover completes, perhaps?

Colin Calderwood is totally inspirational without being over the top and the players would respect him, without any doubt.

A natural leader as a player for Swindon Town, with something still to prove as a Manager, but as honest as the day is long, I think he would be a breath of fresh air for the younger players and respected by the older ones.

We could do much worse than Colin Calderwood and most fans will remember him in very positive terms, perhaps just what we need in the current crisis.

Why do you keep suggesting people with Town connections but no real track records? Reality is we need a proven manager to get championship football. Remember Hart and Malpas

he resigned Luton for personal reasons, just cannot imagine he would now take up a new position somewhere else in the next day or so.
OTR personal reasons could mean that is easier to travel from Lacock to Swindon than Lacock to Luton!? Smokescreen?
you could be right malkym, but after his failure at Gas when he bought 30 players, his judgement of players ability would be seriously questioned
What even worse than PDc's track record for buying duds? lol!

Ironically do you know that currently the best club to invest in to produce a return is the Gas! Because they've had plans passed for a new stadium with housing shops etc. Bet AB would still be in if that was the case here!

So who's available to come in as the goal keeper coach and fitness coach, one of those rugby boys will do for fitness.

We could do with some extra backup for Wes, no disrespect to Bedwell, but a seasoned goalie to register as a player would be a good shout, where's London Red, he'll know who might be available.

Joey Butler that's it I'm a sculpture and I still think there is a chance I may get my dream job.

In the meanwhile I'll keep dreaming of clean sheets and actually just mke Ward and Miller managers until the end of the season. If they have the backing of the players that's good enough for me.

Get on with it and win this league, with or without a statue. Ps I'd wrongly assumed that for the first time in 37 years if supporting we weren't run by clowns or idiots!

No probs Darren, just remember from when I grew up in the aream my parents are still there. I'll keep my identity quiet for now, just nice to put a name to a face. It's got to be thirty years ago now.
Yo Dazzler you got a sister called Margaret? I went to school wih a Margaret Romain?

Excellent jockster. I blame all seater sands, and lack of stamina. When the urge takes us in the DR we can be quite vocal, I just think we get bored too quickly. I think some think it is a holding pen for those hoping to progress to arkells once they have proved they won't make a noise. LOL.
Yes lol - loved it recently when the DR sang back to TE" we are the south side -we'll sing when we want lol!!
I dont have a sister called Margaret i think it a cousin...

If those salaries etc are correct, you may know this for certain I do not, then by resigning their posts to STFC the club will save a fortune.

Enough to gain us another month payments to overheads and survival before this never ending takeover completes, perhaps?
The £65k a month for Paolo will not be far off the mark, it was reported he was on 3 million Euros as a pundit for Italian TV and took a huge wage cut to manage us reported to be 750k a year

At least they will feel that they will be able to make a mistake without being dragged off. Is that why Roberts has perked up? Loved Di Canio but he's gone now and we should look to carry on the good work and build on it.

The £65k a month for Paolo will not be far off the mark, it was reported he was on 3 million Euros as a pundit for Italian TV and took a huge wage cut to manage us reported to be 750k a year
If that's right chaps?then that's just plain poor management from Black and Wray,no wonder Black lost £10m,they just lost control of the finances,div1 clubs just can't pay those wages,we have to have a budget and stick to it,or it's spells debt,then admin!Yeovil is a good model 3'500 gates and they always seem to be very competitive!!!!!!!

Yes, count me in please, for sure.

Colin Calderwood is totally inspirational without being over the top and the players would respect him, without any doubt.

A natural leader as a player for Swindon Town, with something still to prove as a Manager, but as honest as the day is long, I think he would be a breath of fresh air for the younger players and respected by the older ones.

We could do much worse than Colin Calderwood and most fans will remember him in very positive terms, perhaps just what we need in the current crisis.
Why do you keep suggesting people with Town connections but no real track records? Reality is we need a proven manager to get championship football. Remember Hart and Malpas
Remember Ardiles Hoddle & Macari - track records -what track records!

Sorry Darren, meant to add that it would meann us grumpy's ove in the DR would actually have to sing........... By th way, are you the same Darren Romain that used to live on Whitworth Road, just up from the cemetary? Your name rings a bell....
Yes and i still live in the same house.. whos askin.. My past aint going to haunt me AGAIN is it ???
No probs Darren, just remember from when I grew up in the aream my parents are still there. I'll keep my identity quiet for now, just nice to put a name to a face. It's got to be thirty years ago now.
Yo Dazzler you got a sister called Margaret? I went to school wih a Margaret Romain? And Lydiard "us Grumpys" in the DR that includes me are a blo0dy sight more vocal than the Arkells which is basically just an extension of Whitworth road cemetery lol!! Finally my doctor told me to watch what I eat so I've got a Season ticket to this years Cheltenham Festival lol!
Excellent jockster. I blame all seater sands, and lack of stamina. When the urge takes us in the DR we can be quite vocal, I just think we get bored too quickly. I think some think it is a holding pen for those hoping to progress to arkells once they have proved they won't make a noise. LOL.
Yes lol - loved it recently when the DR sang back to TE" we are the south side -we'll sing when we want lol!!
I dont have a sister called Margaret i think it a cousin...

Its a shame the Sir Don Rogers stand dont sing more often as they are very vocal and when you lot do the TownEnd join in,,,

Then the atmosphere is great..
Make sure its vocal on Saturday
ok cheers Daz- We'll try to get off our commodes in the DR :)

Don, I don't know whether the figures are right or not, but I don't think Black can be criticised for bad management. He was never managing at all. He put his dosh in and he put his trust in others to look after the shop. In the end he obviously found that Wray was not managing it how he wanted him to, and that's why he sacked him. I'm not anti-Wray. I thought he was the best Chairman we'd ever had. But was I wrong?

The man went on and on about loyalty, principles and mental strength. He failed on all three on Monday. Cried off when the going got tough. His only loyalty is with west ham and Lazio and even then, when he manages one of them, someone on the board will upset him and he'll sulk off like he did with us, Celtic, AC Milan etc, etc. Let's rebuild and hopefully get someone in with a bit of backbone and fight in him this time. Paolo traitor.

Agree about Wray Den,but Black was the money man,they must have agreed the budget and Black agreed Paolo project and then according to Paolo broke his promises hence Paolo pram and toys come to mind!!

Good move IMO, keeps the continuity going.

On the chants perhaps we could have the Town End singing:

"We are Darren's Red N White Army"

and the Don Rogers replying with:

"We are Tommy's Red N White Army"

Just a thought :-)

I have some BREAKING NEWS on the catering front. On Saturday Burgers (Crocodile or Horse) are replaced with Cous Cous and only Yam Chips will be available.

However, there will be a new Salad Bap available. The Baps are being baked by Mick Murphy at the Baker's shop using organic flour ground by Windy Miller using grain from Johnathan Bell's farm. Captain Snort will deliver the Baps in his army truck and a police escort will be provided by PC McGarry (No. 452). Mrs Honeyman has assumed control of all catering and Dr Mopp has agreed to act as physio.

Well I for one, certainly wish PDC and his Team all the best for the future and would like to thank them for their efforts.

There is however, one further bill outstanding, in that a large chunk is missing out of PDC's office door.

As it cannot be established if this damage was caused when it caught PDC's arse on the way out, or if he kicked it previously, the takeover cannot proceed until this is resolved!

Is it Bryan Robson sitting next to Jed in the cap in that often used photo?

Or is it Guv?

Keegan / Wilkins / Adams if not Robson.

How can people be so positive about this? It's an awful step .... Losing a manager and full back room team and getting 2 players to make do ....

Let's hope the new owners get sorted soon and get a new manager in or paolo back before the wheels come off ....

I hope we win Saturday but am nervous already now!

Most people on here are still positive because;

We won Tuesday night, despite everything else that is going on.

We are top of the league!!!!

If and only IF, the takeover goes ahead, we can still get automatic promotion, for the second year running.

The alternative is meltdown, points deducted and a desperate future, which most on here would not want in their darkest dreams, even if it might suit your negativity!!

Its been a crap few days off the pitch, but I thought this was the best news to come out of the CG in a while.
Two very experienced professionals, both committed to their own game and the club. Fodder's Tweet suggests they (and this decision) are well respected by the squad and that it's already creating a unity that might have been undermined by panic hiring a new manager - new tactics, new training methods, a new approach would most likely have disrupted the squad and the season.
I think this is a great option - cement the group, a team only fighting for each other and the fans, the opportunity to prove what they can do as individuals?
All very positive in my book!

Are you serious joey???

I've been following town through thick and thin for over 20 years!

I stand and sing for the team week in week out. I support them, I hope them do well and don't let up in any of the games, I never give up so please wind your neck in.

Yes I think it's a poor choice, I like those players, I hope they succeed but no I don't think it's a good choice, I want a manager. Just because I have that opinion doesn't make me negative on all things Swindon. Me thinks this stress has affected your thinking ....

Nice post Louis and Matt, fair comments and good thoughts.

I thoroughly hope you're right and it galvanises the squad to do it again on Saturday. I was chuffed with the Tranmere result, I hope training has gone as well since ...

Let's hope they keep it ticking over until someone comes in for the longer term ... Adkins maybe

Yeah, for me this is a good opportunity for the squad to use its collective strength, experience and drive to really push on and prove that they have what it takes as a professional, bonded unit - regardless of what happens off the pitch.

I think the experience will also cement the group for next season. Winning the next 2 home games and pushing on for promotion demonstrates how together they really are.

If they do get promoted this will serve them very well. Teams that stay up tend to have been together as a unit for some time.

Here's hoping anyway!

Adkins finally appeared on the betting odds leaderboard - 12/1 with Skybet. But that's the same price as Bodin, so doesn't mean much.

Is anyone actually betting on this market? Seems like we get a new favourite and big change in odds as soon as some old granny puts a pound on each way. Jimmy Floyd still favourite at 7/4.
You're not far wrong.

As I understand, there's negligible money on most of these jobs, especially one like the ton. A couple of people whacking £10 or £20 on someone see the odds crash as the bookies get worried that someone's got inside info. They probably only run the book on these to get freebie publicity when their odds get reported or the Skybet bod gets to go on SSN.

Surely the ex England captain is Terry Butcher? Back page of the Adver this morning.

Could be okay - win % of 40% with Inverness but they'd have 6-8 games vs the Old Firm every year to drag that down a fair bit. His assistant can stay up there though - we don't want him back again.

There is a very very good candidate for our manager - currently assistant manager at top of the Championship Cardiff City - one man capable of taking us back to the premier league - David Kerslake !!!
He is my preferred choice if PDC is not coming back.
