THE VIC MORGAN COLUMN: Now THAT was a week to remember
6:00am Thursday 26th September 2013 in Sport
IT’S been a great week hasn't it? Over 25,000 fans have made their way through the County Ground turnstiles and witnessed two terrific football matches.
We've seen the likes of Massimo Luongo and Yaser Kasim stroll around the Town pitch playing football worthy of a much higher level.
At times it’s been a total pleasure to watch. Short, crisp passing, neat flicks and genuine creativity. The likes of which we haven't seen for many a year.
We've seen a derby victory over Bristol City, which was an old fashioned, no-quarter-asked-or-given affair, then a football feast against a Chelsea team with two European trophies in two years.
Tell me you haven't enjoyed this week and I won't believe you.
This is a Swindon team with skill, enthusiasm and a desire to play, moulded together by a manager who's becoming more popular by the game.
All this as we prepare to return to the scene of Water-bottle-Gate. The infamous substitution of Wes Foderingham at Preston a year ago led to more national headlines, the kicking of a plastic water container by the replaced goalkeeper and another Paolo DiCanio rant.
Twelve months on we go to Deepdale unlikely to see a repeat of that under the calmer Mark Cooper style. All this in a seven-day spell which has seen our former manager part company with Sunderland and Swindon blossom.
It's been fantastic to hear our great old ground rocking and rolling. It's been great to see Swindon fans walking away from games with smiles on their faces. What a great week.
