So ladies and gents, not a good afternoon to be a Town fan. Unfortunately there'll be no reaction on Matchday Live today due to the set-up here at Orient but a full reaction piece will be online later tonight.

We'll be back in action on Tuesday night when Crawley visit the County Ground. I hope you can join us then.

Try to enjoy the rest of your weekends.

4:55pm

I'm afraid we won't be able to provide reaction on the live blog this afternoon but pop back here later to hear from manager Mark Cooper.

In the meantime, if you can bear it, the full-time report can be found by clicking this convenient link.

FULL-TIME

Leyton Orient 2 (James 42, 52 both pens) Swindon Town 0

Well that was a painful second half of football to watch from a Swindon persuasion. Very little to speak positively about. Orient should really have won by much more but they will be happy enough with Lloyd James's two penalties.

4:48pm

Four minutes to be added to the game.

4:48pm

YELLOW CARD

Reis goes in the book, 90

4:45pm

87 mins: Belford keeps out Cox's rasping drive from range.

4:42pm

LEYTON ORIENT SUBSTITUTION

Kevin Lisbie replaces David Mooney, 84

4:41pm

83 mins: Reis finds Barker in the box but he shoots a long way over the bar.

4:38pm

YELLOW CARD

Cox is booked for diving. Looked harsh, 81

4:36pm

78 mins: Belford saves low to his right from Batt after the substitute ghosted straight through the middle of the Town defence.

4:35pm

77 mins: Cox's cross is headed wide by Mooney.

4:34pm

YELLOW CARD

Reckord is booked for a clumsy challenge 25 yards out, 76

4:33pm

LEYTON ORIENT SUBSTITUTION

Shaun Batt replaces Chris Dagnall, 76

4:33pm

75 mins: Odubajo tees up Mooney, who curls wide from 15 yards.

4:32pm

Swindon seem to be coming up against an invisibly, psychological barrier around 20 yards from Orient's goal. There's just no getting through it.

4:27pm

69 mins: Orient have the ball in the net but it's disallowed for a push by Dagnall.

4:26pm

YELLOW CARD

Dagnall goes in the book for dragging down Harley, 68

4:19pm

61 mins: Smith burrows through into the box and is poised to shoot but Reckord takes the ball off him and fires tamely at Jakupovic.

4:16pm

Attendance here is 5,091 (765 from Swindon).

4:14pm

56 mins: Harley's deflected shot is well saved by Eldin Jakupovic low to his right.

4:14pm

SWINDON DOUBLE SUBSTITUTION

Tijane Reis and George Barker replace Jacob Murphy and Ben Gladwin, 54

4:13pm

YELLOW CARD

Archibald-Henville was booked for his part in the second penalty, 52

4:11pm

Leyton Orient 2 (James 52 pen) Swindon Town 0

James sends Belford the wrong way again.

4:10pm

Archibald-Henville tugged back Mooney as he cantered through but offence started several yards outside the area. Mooney does well to tumble in the box.

4:09pm

Penalty to Orient

4:07pm

49 mins: Mooney's header from Scott Cuthbert's cross is just high and wide.

4:03pm

And we're off again at Brisbane Road.

4:01pm

The two teams are back out for the second half.

HALF-TIME

Leyton Orient 1 (James 42 pen) Swindon Town 0

Orient thoroughly deserve their half-time lead. They have been dynamic and direct going forward, passing the ball at speed and running terrific channels off each other.

Town have stuck up for themselves well for the most part but don't look like threatening the O's goal in the slightest. You would expect changes at the break if Cooper wants to liven his side up as an attacking force.

3:46pm

One minute to be added to the first half.

3:44pm

Leyton Orient 1 (James 42 pen) Swindon Town 0

James makes no mistake from the spot, sending Belford the wrong way. Town will rue a needless sliding tackle from Reckord. Seemed to be a cast-iron penalty.

3:43pm

A needless tackle from Reckord on Odubajo, sliding from behind the box with the O's winger nearing the touchline, gives Orient the chance to go ahead from the spot.

3:42pm

Penalty to Leyton Orient

3:42pm

40 mins: Luongo picks up the ball from Harley 25 yards out, turns and fires over the crossbar.

3:39pm

37 mins: Yaser Kasim is bundled off the ball by Dagnall in midfield but when the forward feeds Moses Odubajo in the box the O's winger can only lash wide

3:35pm

32 mins: Darren Ward and Belford collide in the box but Dagnall can't get the ball across an empty area thanks to Jamie Reckord's tackle.

3:30pm

29 mins: David Mooney's daisy-cutter from range is easy for Belford to claim.

3:30pm

Swindon certainly have the ability to pass the ball around the Orient side but too often they choose to slow the game down, cut back onto the blind side or turn and go backwards. 

Orient, by contrast, are quick and direction and therefore a real handful.

3:21pm

20 mins: Dagnall hits the post with a dainty dink from Lloyd James's delicious chipped pass.

3:16pm

Town are struggling to deal with the pace and clinical first touch of Orient's front four players. Could be a difficult afternoon if that continues.

3:16pm

15 mins: Cox's shot is blocked by Archibald-Henville.

3:10pm

Eight mins: Dean Cox flashes a shot over the crossbar from 30 yards.

3:09pm

Eight mins: Good save from point blank range by Tyrell Belford to keep out Dagnall's volley after Town fail to properly clear the corner.

3:09pm

Seven mins: Superb back-tracking by Nathan Byrne to force a corner after Chris Dagnall eases past Troy Archibald-Henville and bears down on goal.

3:07pm

Six mins: Jacob Murphy has a shot from the top corner of the box. It goes out for a throw-in. Odd.

3:03pm

There is terrific traveling support at Brisbane Road this afternoon. Is that the London Reds out in force?

3:01pm

And we're off at Brisbane Road. Town in black and blue looking to cause an upset here this afternoon.

2:59pm

We're still awaiting official word on what has happened to Foderingham. I imagine that will come post-match.

2:58pm

Wes Foderingham has been replaced in the Swindon Town starting line-up by Tyrell Belford.

2:58pm

The teams are out at Brisbane Road. Kick-off is just moments away.

Cooper made a gesture as if to say a substitution was needed. Perhaps Foderingham is injured.

2:48pm

Looks like there might be a problem with Wes Foderingham here. Conversations ongoing between Mark Cooper, Tyrell Belford and Luke Williams.

2:35pm

ADVER CHIEF SPORTS WRITER SAM MORSHEAD: "I had a very vivid dream last night that Town were beaten 4-0 by Orient today and, at the final whistle, the pitch was overrun by giant spiders.

"Let's hope none of that prophecy comes true this afternoon."

People seem to be getting the hang of this optimism thing.

2:28pm

Back in November, when Orient visited the County Ground, Andrew Bowles ran onto the pitch and attempted to attack O's keeper Jamie Jones.

He has since been prosecuted, banned from football for three years and ordered to work 150 hours unpaid.

Bowles was also told to fulfil his unpaid work requirement within 12 months, pay £100 in compensation for common assault, a £60 victim surcharge and £85 in Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) costs.

2:23pm

Both sets of players are out on the Brisbane Road pitch for their respective warm-ups. Town will be in their changed black and blue strip this afternoon.

That's more like it.

2:22pm

Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade has been heaping praise on Swindon Town in his programme notes.

He wrote: "Let's give a warm welcome to our visitors, especially their manager Mark Cooper, who is doing a really good job at the County Ground and Swindon remain on course for a play-off spot.

Swindon Advertiser: Russell Slade believes the O's are playing without the "fear factor." Picture: Action Images

RUSSELL SLADE

"Mark's squad has a good blend. There is a mixture of experience and that's laced with some talented young players and we anticipate another tough game this afternoon."

2:16pm

Swindon Town will be looking to avenge their home defeat to Orient earlier in the season, when this happened (apologies for those who'd rather have forgotten the whole event)...

2:14pm

ADVER CHIEF SPORTS WRITER SAM MORSHEAD: "So Dany N'Guessan is not fit enough to start, as predicted, but Town have still managed to field a starting XI that should at least be able to compete with Orient.

"It's a big day for Reckord, Harley and Gladwin in particular, who will be keen to show why they deserve a place in the side. Barthram will continue to wonder what on earth he's got to do to get a shot."

Town's season ticket prices for 2014/15 were revealed this week, with small increases across the board for adaults, while matchday fees will vary game on game.

1:50pm

The Swindon Town players have arrived at Brisbane Road and are having a look at the slightly sandy playing surface. It's a lot better than it has been in previous years at Orient, though, that's for sure.

1:48pm

MAN IN THE MIDDLE

This afternoon's referee is Gavin Ward and he very rarely oversees a Swindon Town defeat.

Town have gained at least a point from each of the previous five matches Ward has taken charge of involving the Robins, with their last loss under his stewardship a 2-1 upset at Southend in October 2008.

Ward was the whistleblower for the victory over Coventry City in December, was the referee for Paolo Di Canio's final game at the County Ground helm last year and watched on as Simon Cox scored a famous hat-trick at Northampton Town in March 2009.

TEAM NEWS

We're no expecting anything official until 2pm but here's a quick rundown of how Town's squad is shaping up ahead of kick-off this afternoon.

The Robins were dealt a blow in the week when it was announced that Alex Pritchard faces two weeks on the sidelines with a medial ligament sprain, while Louis Thompson is not fit to feature due to ankle bone bruising.

Swindon Advertiser: Swindon’s Alex Pritchard scores Swindon’s second goal of the evening to beat QPR 2-0 in the League Cup

INJURED: ALEX PRITCHARD

Dany N'Guessan is unlikely to play a part after straining his groin, Ryan Mason is not fully fit following a side strain and Jay McEveley and Nathan Thompson are both suspended.

Grant Hall is a long-term casualty with a calf injury, while Nile Ranger has been ruled out for the season.

1:34pm

Stick with me throughout the afternoon for all the best build-up to the action, followed by in-play updates and reaction.

Buckle up and enjoy!

1:33pm

However, with a raft of players out through injury and suspension, manager Mark Cooper and his side have it all to do in north east London.

1:32pm

After the miserable Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat to Peterborough United on penalties on Monday night, all eyes will be on the Robins to see if they can bounce back in style against an O's team chasing automatic promotion.

1:31pm

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen and welcome to Brisbane Road for Swindon Town's trip to Leyton Orient.

Listening to the first half commentary there seems to be a distinct lack of leadership on the park or from the dug out. That's been one of the many problems this season - A bunch of good lads learning their trade on the pitch with a manager learning his trade in the dug out. No experience anywhere!

Not there so can't comment but not impressed from what i've seen of Reckord live. Why not play Byrne left back and Barthram right back, he's looked good when filling in for Nathan previously and likes to get forward.

If Tijane does get on, fingers crossed he puts in a good shift, there's a good player in there, just needs to get going and get the fans behind him. Bloke behind me gave him a dogs abuse when he came on the other night. I think i told him to support the team in not so many words!

another poor away performance, same tactics let sit deep and try hold out and we conceded again. 2 soft penalties, all chances of play offs gone.
Sorry Cooper i have backed you and defended you but you have to change your tactics and sort the players out. You pick the team and you pick the tactics and you are the one that has to motivate the team for the game.
2 days off have not worked at all
Young players not an excuse they should have the desire to show what they can do.
This has been going on all season and yet it is still not sorted out. It is down to Cooper to tear into the team and get that desire back into the away games until he does and changes his tactics from this very poor sitting deep and lets try hold out then we will just keep conceding and losing especially away from home.

Dear Rose and fellow tinters,

I realise that reading these words will not be easy for you. You have valiantly championed the play off cause when most of the more realistic supporters gave up any such delusional thoughts even before the Lone Ranger was ruled out for the rest of the season.

It has been as plain as a pike staff that we do not possess a squad with any strength in depth to mount any serious challenge for a play off spot. Cooper must be given credit for getting so much blood out of a stone with very poor circulation but as we know his hands are tied and does not have the tactical nous to try and change things when the chips are down. Add in the indiscipline which has led to unnecessary suspensions of key players which again he has a degree of control over ( fining players for dissent for example) and you have an uphill task to start with.

I wish Mr Power luck in his quest to raise the income levels by upping season ticket and match day prices he'll need it because those more discerning punters will be looking at value for money before shelling out and with more summer departures the future is looking bleak.

So dear Rose and friends please don't shed too many crocodile tears and look forward to another season with PooperScooperMan leading us to the promised land of L2 and beyond!

With the team selection we had today, probably 0-2 was to be expected. Big questions for Mr Cooper, what is the problem within the STFC set up that we continue to accrue cards, we continue to concede goals from set pieces, we continue to have more players in the sick room than on the field of play and don't say it's bad luck, when players continue to be injured it suggest to me something is not right.

None of the new signings are proving to be of any benefit to us, I wasn't there today and therefore bow to the better judgement of those that were, but from what I have seen in the last few games, Gladwin is no more than conference level and is not ready to start games at div 1 level. Barker, Murphy and Reckford have done nothing to impress. Smith also seems to be short of ability to move up from div 2. Five poor signings that have added nothing to the team.

Sorry, but we cannot continue like this, did we actually have a shot on target today? We have until 4th march to bring in some experience, time for Power and Cooper to realise players they think might have a future are just not good enough at the present time.

Maybe now this can put an end to all this fantasy about the play offs. Never was going to happen this season and too many living in cuckoo land. Have to say after today Reckord needs to be sent back to Wolves never a defender and not even a decent footballer total liability at the back and get rid.
Need a couple of wins to cement our stay in this division this season.
Going to miss Ranger more than any other player just look at the stats when he plays and very costly mistakes made by the club hey Mr Power. I still feel aggrieved that they forced the Colchester game on last week when it made great sense to cancel. No apologies either after they made us fans travel out in some of the worst conditions I have every known.

Couldn't go today but unsurprised by the result. Reckord has not impressed me at all in the games I have seen him play and Harley, after a reasonable start, contributes little to the team. Injuries to key players have had a massive impact on us and we really don't have any depth in the squad. Have to agree with Jockster about play offs being a fantasy but I still think we will finish (just) in the upper half of the table.

Total inept shocking display of football I have seen for a while.
We would not have scored if we played for another hour.
Orient would have scored the next goal for sure.
Slow at the back. Sideways toothless midfield who lost their individual battles and a forward left to pick up scraps playing most of the game on his own.

Plays off no chance and hoping we get to the magical 52 sooner than later.

Losing patience and starting to get a bit bored of the sues to side football.
If you bring a winger on then at least play a triangle and get him loose down the line. Orient done it so why can't we.

Poor tactics, poor players I don't know but what I do know that display was more suited to a relegation team.

Rant over and on train back home totally pis@@d off.

Lets be honest, things are not going to change and nor is Cooper. We will survive this season in L1 and that is what is was all ever about, sticking plasters, makeshift and mend. Not at all surprised by the result or how it came about, we must have done some things right to limit them to 2 pens.

Cooper has taken this team as far as he can, and while he needs to adapt, I wonder if any other manager in his place with these players would be able to do much better. On the motivation front maybe, but with our self destruct poor discipline and non inspirational leadership it must be like pushing 5hit uphill. It aint going to happen, nor are play offs for this side. League One next season at a price if you go every week. Most will be picking those weeks very carefully.

I see predictions of gloom and imminent collapse have appeared again today following the defeat. Then we'll win a couple or put in a great performance and the same people will be announcing the eating of humble pie. Wish I could get a price on that at the bookies.

What I would like to see Cooper do now is entertain those who continue to turn up and watch (I'll be at Crewe regardless of Tuesday's result) and prepare for next season. Try some of the youngsters out, try people in new positions and make it clear to those that think they are regular first teamers, they will be on the release list if effort and desire aren't shown.

Not every club can be promoted every year. Most predicted a relegation battle this year and yet call for the managers head when we are in the top 10, good cup run, etc. Orient are an example of a team built up with continuity and patience. Every fan of every club that loses a game thinks they know why, that's just football.
On signing, I think 90% of our signing have shown excellent value and potential. Reckord and Barker have something to prove but far too early to judge yet.

Very true plus, the club has halved its salary costs on last season so it's hardly failure. Everyone thought we would be relegated by Christmas!

Jesus this forum makes me laugh sometimes!!
I was at the game today as i am ay every game and being honest it was not pretty in fact it was **** right awful!!
But I am a realist and some people on this forum are suffering from memory loss
as if i remember rightly i would say 75% of them were saying at the beginning of the season that we were Relegation Fodder, we did not stand a chance, it was going to be a long hard season.
Well here we are at the business end of the season only (in my opinion) 5-7 points of league one Safety, well to all you people who predicted relegation surely then this season is a success?
Its time for a reality check we punched above our weight at the beginning of the season we are a mediocre mid table side at best we have NO MONEY we can only average 6500 for home games for gods sake we could not even get 7000 for a cup semi final!!
To all you stay away fans I am sorry but its a vicious circle you are creating if gates drop then the club looses revenue with out which how can we afford quality players?
All we can afford are 2nd best players at most so how can you moan they are all we can afford we have NO MONEY.
power will have to put prices up to rectify the drop in attendance so they have modelled next season on the gates for this season and guess what people to keep the club afloat prices go up.
Now what will put bums on seats a good team playing well will help. But if you stay away and moan how can we afford players to play well how can we afford a quality manager all you baying for Coopers blood who will replace him and quality manager we can not afford we have NO MONEY!!!
As i said its a vicious circle low gates low in come low quality players equals crap performances.
We are getting what we deserve now if we as fans continue to moan groan blame everyone else then sorry people but its only going to get worse.
Am i happy well in a warped way yes because this team has punched way above its weight and we could be in a relegation dog fight (LIKE SHI>TTY)
Unless we find a rich Russian or Arab then sorry people but unless our gates go up then nothing will change, But as a fan of STFC i will continue to support my Team and who ever manages it even if they make mistakes and i find the tactics some what weird i know that its all we can afford so instead of posting a hate campaign against Cooper I will continue to support MY CLUB.

Dear Rose and fellow tinters,

I realise that reading these words will not be easy for you. You have valiantly championed the play off cause when most of the more realistic supporters gave up any such delusional thoughts even before the Lone Ranger was ruled out for the rest of the season.

It has been as plain as a pike staff that we do not possess a squad with any strength in depth to mount any serious challenge for a play off spot. Cooper must be given credit for getting so much blood out of a stone with very poor circulation but as we know his hands are tied and does not have the tactical nous to try and change things when the chips are down. Add in the indiscipline which has led to unnecessary suspensions of key players which again he has a degree of control over ( fining players for dissent for example) and you have an uphill task to start with.

I wish Mr Power luck in his quest to raise the income levels by upping season ticket and match day prices he'll need it because those more discerning punters will be looking at value for money before shelling out and with more summer departures the future is looking bleak.

So dear Rose and friends please don't shed too many crocodile tears and look forward to another season with PooperScooperMan leading us to the promised land of L2 and beyond!
Of course we don't they are all injured.

Cookie I take your points on board but! If we continue to perform like we gave recently and let's face it the players we currently have at our disposal don't inspire confidence and therefore by definition we could get sucked in to the relegation dogfight couldn't we?

Result as expected maybe but not the way it happened. I could suffer 2 - 0 but not two penalties. Two gifts. A dim witted way to chuck a match.

Hi Jockster,
I think To be honest 7 points will be enough 52 points now if we can not get 7 points out of 13 games then we deserve to be relegated end off

I agree with a lot of your post Cookie,but Orient get about 4,500 gates,they also have a lower playing budget than us and last time I looked they were top of the league, it can be done on low gates and low budgets and Sheff Utd and Bristol Sh1ty have huge budgets and bigger gates and are failing. it's not all about money.

Agree its not but Orient have managed to keep pretty much the same side for the last 3 seasons and they are now reaping the reward. Plus they have Barry Hearn who covers most of the costs and the stadium.
We had to loose 80% of our team we had 3 new managers 3 new owners in 18 months russel slade has been with orient a long time so has hearn so has the players all gelled over a long time

Good job Paul Benson plays for Luton and not us any more, although we pay part of his wages!!

He scored two more goals today when Luton won 5-0 away and also scored last week when Luton won 7-0 at home. That is 14 so far this season for Benson.

Guaranteed promotion to League Two for Luton next season, very best of luck to Paul Benson, who could still be scoring goals for us now.

To all you stay away fans I am sorry but its a vicious circle you are creating if gates drop then the club looses revenue with out which how can we afford quality players?
All we can afford are 2nd best players at most so how can you moan they are all we can afford we have NO MONEY.
power will have to put prices up to rectify the drop in attendance so they have modelled next season on the gates for this season and guess what people to keep the club afloat prices go up.
Now what will put bums on seats a good team playing well will help. But if you stay away and moan how can we afford players to play well how can we afford a quality manager all you baying for Coopers blood who will replace him and quality manager we can not afford we have NO MONEY!!!
As i said its a vicious circle low gates low in come low quality players equals crap performances.
We are getting what we deserve now if we as fans continue to moan groan blame everyone else then sorry people but its only going to get worse.
Am i happy well in a warped way yes because this team has punched way above its weight and we could be in a relegation dog fight (LIKE SHI>TTY)
Unless we find a rich Russian or Arab then sorry people but unless our gates go up then nothing will change, But as a fan of STFC i will continue to support my Team and who ever manages it even if they make mistakes and i find the tactics some what weird i know that its all we can afford so instead of posting a hate campaign against Cooper I will continue to support MY CLUB.
If your a realist admit you are a twaat
Only one Twa.t here back to your radio you sad sad little man

I see predictions of gloom and imminent collapse have appeared again today following the defeat. Then we'll win a couple or put in a great performance and the same people will be announcing the eating of humble pie. Wish I could get a price on that at the bookies.

What I would like to see Cooper do now is entertain those who continue to turn up and watch (I'll be at Crewe regardless of Tuesday's result) and prepare for next season. Try some of the youngsters out, try people in new positions and make it clear to those that think they are regular first teamers, they will be on the release list if effort and desire aren't shown.
Manc I wasn't there today but like you I'll be at Crewe brizzle City & Coventry, and yes I've posted that we are inadequate because we are and even the most self declared optimist should surely see that. Wiz's post sums it up very well.
Like I said I'll be at the aforementioned games but I won't be going with any high expectations because we simply haven't got even the nucleus of a side or manager that can take us to the next level anytime soon.
Jock, I 'm not a million miles away from you here. I didn't have high expectations either and the likely mid table, top half finish is very respectable in my view.

Where I might disagree is that I do think we have the nucleus of a good side. Fods, the Thompsons, Pritchard and Ranger all have Championship credentials and likely to go at the end of the season as a result. TAH, Llongue, Kasim, Mason, and Reiss all have that potential and many haven't yet had enough of a chance.

On that basis, I'm optimistic and don't expect or want Power to buy our way to success.

As to whether Cooper is a good manager, the jury has got to be out. He's done a lot of good things but has certainly made some mistakes. As we both know Jock, he has frequently struggled to get it right on the road this season!

Just read the Cooper post match report. I am now convinced he has no idea what he's doing, give it a read. It's laughable.

'We didn't threaten their goal enough, but we have a way that we want to play' in other words we keep playing tippy tappy football and continue to lose too many games and do nothing about the obvious weaknesses, which have been there for the majority of this season.

Bearwood i am afraid Grim, Smirg and ya mums and any more of his multiple sad sad identities are not worth worrying about. He is nothing more than a pathetic attention seeking individual he is probably sat at home drunk all alone looking for attention so he posts his drivel on here looking for attention. What a sad lonely life he must have. You have to feel sorry for him really.
just ignore him.

Well here we are at the business end of the season only (in my opinion) 5-7 points of league one Safety, well to all you people who predicted relegation surely then this season is a success?
Its time for a reality check we punched above our weight at the beginning of the season we are a mediocre mid table side at best we have NO MONEY we can only average 6500 for home games for gods sake we could not even get 7000 for a cup semi final!!
To all you stay away fans I am sorry but its a vicious circle you are creating if gates drop then the club looses revenue with out which how can we afford quality players?
All we can afford are 2nd best players at most so how can you moan they are all we can afford we have NO MONEY.
power will have to put prices up to rectify the drop in attendance so they have modelled next season on the gates for this season and guess what people to keep the club afloat prices go up.
Now what will put bums on seats a good team playing well will help. But if you stay away and moan how can we afford players to play well how can we afford a quality manager all you baying for Coopers blood who will replace him and quality manager we can not afford we have NO MONEY!!!
As i said its a vicious circle low gates low in come low quality players equals crap performances.

Why should I 'give it a rest' manc?

The only thing worse than a 'saddo with a single identity', is the multiple posting idiot fringe on here, to which the above post from Cookie refers.

I have suffered much more than my fair share of insults from wizard for the best part of four years now and as recently as just a few days ago. He does not even go to Swindon Town matches, but thinks he owns this site.

Cookie is absolutely right in what he said in the post above, so stay out of this please, or are you wizard as well??

Manc ignore - he'll have you in tears with all his self -pity - the thing is all the abuse JB gets is self inflicted, with his random personal accusations and name calling.
Does he also actually go out the County Ground regularly, I don't think so, if at all now .
Understand though he can give you a good quote to Tarmac your drive according to his posting the other night. LOL

Looks as though it got pretty feisty on here last night. Very glad I didn't come out to play. The way I see it, there were 13 players involved against a team top of the table. Eight of them have put in a total of 23 appearances for the club so far this season. Of the others, three of them are averaging just 21 years. For me this game is valuable experience and an opportunity for learning from a better side on the day and throughout the season. I still respect the club for its strategy of young, technical players to balance books and I have no expectations beyond a mid table finish. There are moments already this season to savour and more to come. Better to take frustrations out some other way than slagging off other posters or the players and management. Cooper is positive, prepared to experiment and take the same learn from each game philosophy as his players and that is why they support him in a tough job. I just wish more supporters would too but I guess that's the nature of forums like this.

Wasn't he also benched at Salisbury.

Went yesterday and clearly we were not good enough.although until their first goal i did not think there was a lot in it to be honest,Orient top of the League??
To me shows how poor this League is.
No matter what people say the injuries and suspensions caught up in a big way yesterday,but that did not really excuse the last 20 minutes.
To me there were a couple of positives,Belford did not look out of place in goal and played well and this next one i will get shot down for but i thought Barker showed just a couple of glimpses of good things to come when he came on.

Dear Rose and fellow tinters,

I realise that reading these words will not be easy for you. You have valiantly championed the play off cause when most of the more realistic supporters gave up any such delusional thoughts even before the Lone Ranger was ruled out for the rest of the season.

It has been as plain as a pike staff that we do not possess a squad with any strength in depth to mount any serious challenge for a play off spot. Cooper must be given credit for getting so much blood out of a stone with very poor circulation but as we know his hands are tied and does not have the tactical nous to try and change things when the chips are down. Add in the indiscipline which has led to unnecessary suspensions of key players which again he has a degree of control over ( fining players for dissent for example) and you have an uphill task to start with.

I wish Mr Power luck in his quest to raise the income levels by upping season ticket and match day prices he'll need it because those more discerning punters will be looking at value for money before shelling out and with more summer departures the future is looking bleak.

So dear Rose and friends please don't shed too many crocodile tears and look forward to another season with PooperScooperMan leading us to the promised land of L2 and beyond!
Wasn't you one of the many realistic posters that also said we were certainties for relegation at the start of the season?
Bit harsh on supporters who want to be positive to call them tinters.
Also the realistic fact is we are still in with a shout of the playoffs,do i think we will make it to them? Not a chance, we will finish mid table just like i predicted at the start of the season when most were tipping us to go down and City to go straight up because they had signed Flint.

I wish Mr Power luck in his quest to raise the income levels by upping season ticket and match day prices he'll need it because those more discerning punters will be looking at value for money before shelling out and with more summer departures the future is looking bleak. So dear Rose and friends please don't shed too many crocodile tears and look forward to another season with PooperScooperMan leading us to the promised land of L2 and beyond![/p][/quote]Wasn't you one of the many realistic posters that also said we were certainties for relegation at the start of the season? Bit harsh on supporters who want to be positive to call them tinters. Also the realistic fact is we are still in with a shout of the playoffs,do i think we will make it to them? Not a chance, we will finish mid table just like i predicted at the start of the season when most were tipping us to go down and City to go straight up because they had signed Flint. swwindon61uk

I was at the game today as i am ay every game and being honest it was not pretty in fact it was **** right awful!!
But I am a realist and some people on this forum are suffering from memory loss
as if i remember rightly i would say 75% of them were saying at the beginning of the season that we were Relegation Fodder, we did not stand a chance, it was going to be a long hard season.
Well here we are at the business end of the season only (in my opinion) 5-7 points of league one Safety, well to all you people who predicted relegation surely then this season is a success?
Its time for a reality check we punched above our weight at the beginning of the season we are a mediocre mid table side at best we have NO MONEY we can only average 6500 for home games for gods sake we could not even get 7000 for a cup semi final!!
To all you stay away fans I am sorry but its a vicious circle you are creating if gates drop then the club looses revenue with out which how can we afford quality players?
All we can afford are 2nd best players at most so how can you moan they are all we can afford we have NO MONEY.
power will have to put prices up to rectify the drop in attendance so they have modelled next season on the gates for this season and guess what people to keep the club afloat prices go up.
Now what will put bums on seats a good team playing well will help. But if you stay away and moan how can we afford players to play well how can we afford a quality manager all you baying for Coopers blood who will replace him and quality manager we can not afford we have NO MONEY!!!
As i said its a vicious circle low gates low in come low quality players equals crap performances.
We are getting what we deserve now if we as fans continue to moan groan blame everyone else then sorry people but its only going to get worse.
Am i happy well in a warped way yes because this team has punched way above its weight and we could be in a relegation dog fight (LIKE SHI>TTY)
Unless we find a rich Russian or Arab then sorry people but unless our gates go up then nothing will change, But as a fan of STFC i will continue to support my Team and who ever manages it even if they make mistakes and i find the tactics some what weird i know that its all we can afford so instead of posting a hate campaign against Cooper I will continue to support MY CLUB.
Excellent post 43.
Unfortunately for most of the forum the moaners are going to be in their element with our home run in,lot of good teams we have to play yet who are just better than us plain and simple.

If your a realist admit you are a twaat
smeg kebab your posts are pointless, childish and have gotten really dull - porper dull, unfunny and please post elsewhere.

Cookie well said - totally agree.
Two twaats out tonight
I will post where how and when I like you swindle scum
Bearwood i am afraid Grim, Smirg and ya mums and any more of his multiple sad sad identities are not worth worrying about. He is nothing more than a pathetic attention seeking individual he is probably sat at home drunk all alone looking for attention so he posts his drivel on here looking for attention. What a sad lonely life he must have. You have to feel sorry for him really.
just ignore him.
A very, very similar situation to Wizard then Cookie!!!!

Very well said Cookie, excellent comment.
Joe, it is of course possible to be a saddo with a single identity.

Give it a rest mate.
Why should I 'give it a rest' manc?

The only thing worse than a 'saddo with a single identity', is the multiple posting idiot fringe on here, to which the above post from Cookie refers.

I have suffered much more than my fair share of insults from wizard for the best part of four years now and as recently as just a few days ago. He does not even go to Swindon Town matches, but thinks he owns this site.

Cookie is absolutely right in what he said in the post above, so stay out of this please, or are you wizard as well??
Sorry chaps as much as you don't like me I do and will never go under another poster.
Just one point I would make is wiz is back on here who has many double.
Indentities..
Plus I wouldn't call any town fan scum , but I would say swindle.
Up to you anyway if you believe me.

Calling for Cooper's head now is pointless, he will not be sacked unless we are relegated. We are destined for mid table obscurity this year, not too bad a result considering all that has gone on. Next year will be the interesting one as the spurs lads go back and the budget reduces again, we will really see what Cooper can do, or not do as it may turn out.

Cooper has taken this team as far as he can, and while he needs to adapt, I wonder if any other manager in his place with these players would be able to do much better. On the motivation front maybe, but with our self destruct poor discipline and non inspirational leadership it must be like pushing 5hit uphill. It aint going to happen, nor are play offs for this side. League One next season at a price if you go every week. Most will be picking those weeks very carefully.

There was an interesting call into 606 last night regarding wages (£300,000 a week) destroying the heart and soul of football. Robbie Savage defended the person in question and IMO he is right, who wouldn't take a pay rise but missed the point the caller made.

Many complain about paying £25 to go to see Town and it is a lot especially if you have a family that want to attend. West Ham fan phoned and said he could not afford £75 person to go and many of his mates were in the same boat.

Manure can afford to pay these ridiculous sums because they receive millions in sponsorship and from TV but they also charge high admission prices. This has affected the crowds by attracting the better paid but less vocal supporter and they now have a singing section (WTF).

The problem is that the player costs filter down the leagues but the money doesn't and this affects teams that don't have the financial backing to cover paying wages that are not covered by gate receipts and to a lesser extent TV money.

We were lucky and did it at Swindon when AB covered the losses.

I think the point is we are starting to see the demise of football in England as the hearts of clubs atmosphere and the young are priced out. When the singing section fails to generate the atmosphere the others will lose interest which will in turn lower the saleability and income from TV revenue. Backers will lose interest and bingo.

Is this happening at STFC and is the strategy to live within your income the right way forward ? I do think that £25 is probably too much but I think the pressures from higher up influence wages and costs lower down the pyramid especially for clubs looking to compete. We blame Lee Power et al but is it all their doing.

Thought for the day !

Bearwood i am afraid Grim, Smirg and ya mums and any more of his multiple sad sad identities are not worth worrying about. He is nothing more than a pathetic attention seeking individual he is probably sat at home drunk all alone looking for attention so he posts his drivel on here looking for attention. What a sad lonely life he must have. You have to feel sorry for him really.
just ignore him.
A very, very similar situation to Wizard then Cookie!!!!

Very well said Cookie, excellent comment.
Joe, it is of course possible to be a saddo with a single identity.

Give it a rest mate.
Why should I 'give it a rest' manc?

The only thing worse than a 'saddo with a single identity', is the multiple posting idiot fringe on here, to which the above post from Cookie refers.

I have suffered much more than my fair share of insults from wizard for the best part of four years now and as recently as just a few days ago. He does not even go to Swindon Town matches, but thinks he owns this site.

Cookie is absolutely right in what he said in the post above, so stay out of this please, or are you wizard as well??
Sorry chaps as much as you don't like me I do and will never go under another poster.
Just one point I would make is wiz is back on here who has many double.
Indentities..
Plus I wouldn't call any town fan scum , but I would say swindle.
Up to you anyway if you believe me.
You fat tart.
Fat ?
10 stone 4 ?

Far?

You can judge 3 of the players who have less than 10 appearances between and another who is in his debut season playing alongside a poor CB partner?
Maybe you should apply for the job after the season is finished and see if you get your Baines,Carles Puyol,Messi and Bale to the club.

The only player i have real doubt after the short time i have seen these players is Reckford,the rest may or may not make it.

All this name calling - insults- slagging each other off- not good enough guys - thought we were all on the same side - maybe better to get behind the manager- team , at least until the seasons over, then see where we are . 7 players missing yesterday- 4 of them key ones- always going to be an uphill struggle against one of the best teams in this league - Good post by cookie by the way- sums it all up perfectly.

If Lee Power thinks he can make a success of a football club? with a bunch of kids,loans,rejects and an unproven non-league manager! I'm afraid he's in for a shock, the fans will soon get fed up and lose interest,season ticket holders numbers will drop and gates will drop,if you don't get some investment Power many fans will lose interest.

and your easy answer to this is.......

Thought not - it is all to easy to knock, dam sight harder to find a solution - if in fact there is a problem .

This club does not have the money - simple as - sooner that gets through the better. So we may have to rely on loans, kids and cast off's, but if it means we survive as a club then so be it. IMO.

IMO.[/p][/quote]What I'm saying Mr Fips is Power's talking Championship and thinks he can make a success with cast-off's,loans,kid s and rejects led by an unproven non-league manager,we may survive like you say? but talking Championship is taking the p*ss.[/p][/quote]Rome wasn't built in a day...[/p][/quote]No but it was burn't in one lol. mike1990

The only way forward long term is for Power to get an experienced manager in at the end of this season who will work with him on the recruitment scene for next season. this season was all about survival, and around a year ago not many thought we would still be here let alone in the top half right of League One right now.

A lot of turmoil has passed since a year ago, and here we are, still here. The rich backers have gone, why, well many have differing views on that, but the position right now is, we don't have all the debt of this time last year, a few decent players are still here, and at the end of this season we will be in a better position to go forward.

It could have easily been a lot worse. Jed and Muriel have gone, as has Black, but at least we have an owner who has played the game and appreciates what it takes. No, he may not be to everybodies liking but he has contacts and has brought in enough guys to see us through.

I don't think Cooper has the potential to take us forward in any great way, his team selection and tactics are often limited, but he has managed to get us this far, but that seems to his limit. He was probably the only choice at the time.

The summer will bring more changes and once again the onus will be on reduction, but hopefully more quality coming in at the expense of numbers leaving, and that I see as a good thing as it will give more control on wages and a better emphasis on training and development.. As Power said, don't judge me on one season, and I think that is a fair and justifiable comment because right now I don't see anyone with a better alternative.

Took the youngest to watch Man City yesterday, and did the tour as well.

Guide said ground being extended upwards at the ends and season tickets there will cost £299! Every seat has a good view can vouch for that.

Mind you he also said they are opening a new £200 million training complex over the road including 8 pitches of differing quality ranging from 'luxury' to 'Crawley' standard, bit of money there of course....

Still can't get my head round £27 a game for Swindon regardless of which League 1 team we are playing think its a big mistake and also a pointless one as basically the standard of League 1 is much of a muchness and certainly some of the gold standard teams (Rotherham?) are unlikely to entice even one extra person to turn up so the price hike could just put people off who were thinking of coming along anyway. It's like the opposite of psychological pricing. Without wanting to sound like a doom monger, the extra pricing and anticipated squad quality reduction through reduced budget makes me think it could be a long hard season and gates down to 6-7,000

I think the £200m training centre identifies the problem with the game particularly in the lower leagues. Loads of money in the Prem and very rich backers (for the time being). The fact that they can charge £299 for a season ticket indicates that they don't really need money from gate receipts. Unfortunately Town are very reliant on gate money to provide any sort of team.

I see that £299 is part of the new extenuation and can cost up to £449,sat at the top of new stand.
Also says their maybe potential price increases.
Current season tickets range £450 - £799.
Also would say the lowest prices are for children as i have just looked for tickets against Aston Villa and they range between £40 and £48 for the game.

Early bird £370 or £390 in the stands and £314 to stand up.
Afterearly bird:
£394 or £414 in the stands and £333 to stand up.

Ours are cheaper and to be honest i know which stands i would rather be sat in!

I agree with most of what you say- but on the question about cooper - well to be honest- I really don't know- I have always backed him to the hilt and really want him to be successful because if he is then that means the team are successful to- having said that I do have my doubts about just how far he can take us that's not to say i'm knocking him in any way - he's done a reasonable job so far - the jurys still out I guess - but hey he's right here right now , so my take on this is to stay firmly behind him and the team - for the time being anyway and see what happens.

On the subject of falling attendances its as though the club has given up on offers. You would have thought with it being half term when we played on the Monday they would have made some sort of offer, same with the Friday night game I know they had some sort of late offer but less face it the games when our rivals bring around a 100 fans would it not make a difference to drop the price a bit. My Grandson comes often now but I have had problems with him getting a seat with me and think its stupid of the club to expect a 7 year old boy to sit next to a stranger. He also has a season ticket for the gunners for £25 . Yes we have seen deals at the club before where it has made no difference but its as though the club has given up on this season so you can see why a lot of fans have to. I think we need to get to the safety of 55 points and start showing the fans what team we are going to have for next season.

Yes we have seen deals at the club before where it has made no difference but its as though the club has given up on this season so you can see why a lot of fans have to. I think we need to get to the safety of 55 points and start showing the fans what team we are going to have for next season. jayden

On the subject of falling attendances its as though the club has given up on offers.

Forgot to + that I am a season ticket holder and think they are good value but would not pay £25/£27 for a game.

The only way forward long term is for Power to get an experienced manager in at the end of this season who will work with him on the recruitment scene for next season. this season was all about survival, and around a year ago not many thought we would still be here let alone in the top half right of League One right now.

A lot of turmoil has passed since a year ago, and here we are, still here. The rich backers have gone, why, well many have differing views on that, but the position right now is, we don't have all the debt of this time last year, a few decent players are still here, and at the end of this season we will be in a better position to go forward.

It could have easily been a lot worse. Jed and Muriel have gone, as has Black, but at least we have an owner who has played the game and appreciates what it takes. No, he may not be to everybodies liking but he has contacts and has brought in enough guys to see us through.

I don't think Cooper has the potential to take us forward in any great way, his team selection and tactics are often limited, but he has managed to get us this far, but that seems to his limit. He was probably the only choice at the time.

The summer will bring more changes and once again the onus will be on reduction, but hopefully more quality coming in at the expense of numbers leaving, and that I see as a good thing as it will give more control on wages and a better emphasis on training and development.. As Power said, don't judge me on one season, and I think that is a fair and justifiable comment because right now I don't see anyone with a better alternative.
I agree with most of what you say- but on the question about cooper - well to be honest- I really don't know- I have always backed him to the hilt and really want him to be successful because if he is then that means the team are successful to- having said that I do have my doubts about just how far he can take us that's not to say i'm knocking him in any way - he's done a reasonable job so far - the jurys still out I guess - but hey he's right here right now , so my take on this is to stay firmly behind him and the team - for the time being anyway and see what happens.
Basically yes, but and its a big but, I think we need somebody with experience of getting clubs promoted, that bit of cunning and manipulation or what ever you want to call it. NO, I don't think he is a bad manager, but I do feel despite all of his good will etc some of his tactics and selections have cost us in general terms. Now recently he is bemoaning players getting cards and suspensions, he should have been onto that flaw in our system at the beginning of the season when it was obvious the way things were going, and to me that shows an element of naivety.. While that may be OK at Conference level it certainly isn't here and that is a lesson he should have learned from in August/September.

Not every assistant can step up in the way and manner that he has and we owe him some credit for that.

That said, I think he has tried in his way and more than that you can't ask, but I'd keep him here as an assistant as well as Williams as then training would improve. The S/T pricing issue is an annual favourite for debate, but I think it is under more scrutiny now due to prices and wages, and the senior level being raised from 60 to 65 will not be welcomed in many areas.

Cooper has taken this team as far as he can, and while he needs to adapt, I wonder if any other manager in his place with these players would be able to do much better. On the motivation front maybe, but with our self destruct poor discipline and non inspirational leadership it must be like pushing 5hit uphill. It aint going to happen, nor are play offs for this side. League One next season at a price if you go every week. Most will be picking those weeks very carefully.
So your back again winding up the only 3 supporters (so called)
Who only has the right to post on here,
Keep it up wiz, it makes a forum worth looking at lol
You obviously refer to three who are actually one, but there is at least one other under that collective.( Just in case you haven't worked it out) LOL

No deals for the Crawley game even though lots of fans made the trip only to be turned around. Not a moan as it makes no odds to me even though I can't go the club still have my money . In a funny way it seemed to be going forward more under Jed (time to baton down. )

Mind you he also said they are opening a new £200 million training complex over the road including 8 pitches of differing quality ranging from 'luxury' to 'Crawley' standard, bit of money there of course....

Still can't get my head round £27 a game for Swindon regardless of which League 1 team we are playing think its a big mistake and also a pointless one as basically the standard of League 1 is much of a muchness and certainly some of the gold standard teams (Rotherham?) are unlikely to entice even one extra person to turn up so the price hike could just put people off who were thinking of coming along anyway. It's like the opposite of psychological pricing. Without wanting to sound like a doom monger, the extra pricing and anticipated squad quality reduction through reduced budget makes me think it could be a long hard season and gates down to 6-7,000
I see that £299 is part of the new extenuation and can cost up to £449,sat at the top of new stand.
Also says their maybe potential price increases.
Current season tickets range £450 - £799.
Also would say the lowest prices are for children as i have just looked for tickets against Aston Villa and they range between £40 and £48 for the game.
£299 is for adults which is good.
Yep, appreciate that £299 probably the worst seat in the house but having sat up in the gods yesterday I found the view excellent (albeit level with halfway line) and would be happy with that as an option.

I paid £46 adult and £25 junior tickets and yes that's expensive, but was it value for money I would say yes. A side stand season works out at £31 a game (19 games for £600) which compares to just over twice the max early bird price of £16 for Swindon (23 games at £375)

Made a day of it and the lad was thrilled. It was an event not a match. Pre match entertainment was great there were outside bars and food stalls galore, a stage with proper presenters, old Man City players interviewed, bands playing, competitions, challenges for the kids. Moonbeam and Manchester (equivalent of Rocking Robin) walking around for the kids together with some characters from a new game.

Was it say twice as good as a Swindon match day experience (Rocking Robin and Legends bar) well I would say yes again by a distance, but accept that it was a one-off visit with novelty factor, plus obviously I was watching the match as a neutral so didn't care about the result.

The only real problem I had was I felt I was watching a load of millionaire foreign players strutting their stuff, so if I was a Man City true blue I don't know if I would like that compared to the 'old days'.

And of course it is all ridiculous when our playing budget next season will be the same as Yaya Toure earns in 6 weeks. Also that the Sheik who owns the club sits in a £13,000 hospitality box for 20 people with bar, sofas, waitresses, 5 course meal etc, then moves down to his heated, padded seat for the game.

Good post Wilesy that's my point as above if you take Kids they need to be entertained for the whole afternoon and under Jed I thought we were doing ok with this factor but of late it seems to have gone backwards. I don't ask for much but my two are bored by half time and say they will be good next week LOL. They love R.R. but there is a limit to the times you can laugh at him falling over. Yes we are there for the football at the end of the day but these are the fans for the future.

I wasn't knocking it Wilesy,just made me have a look that is all....LOL
It is something i would like to do i guess at several clubs, but it would have to be a real treat to myself!
No way would i pay £27 to watch my club in Division 3 !

Moonbeam and Manchester (equivalent of Rocking Robin) walking around for the kids together with some characters from a new game. Was it say twice as good as a Swindon match day experience (Rocking Robin and Legends bar) well I would say yes again by a distance, but accept that it was a one-off visit with novelty factor, plus obviously I was watching the match as a neutral so didn't care about the result. The only real problem I had was I felt I was watching a load of millionaire foreign players strutting their stuff, so if I was a Man City true blue I don't know if I would like that compared to the 'old days'. And of course it is all ridiculous when our playing budget next season will be the same as Yaya Toure earns in 6 weeks. Also that the Sheik who owns the club sits in a £13,000 hospitality box for 20 people with bar, sofas, waitresses, 5 course meal etc, then moves down to his heated, padded seat for the game.[/p][/quote]I wasn't knocking it Wilesy,just made me have a look that is all....LOL It is something i would like to do i guess at several clubs, but it would have to be a real treat to myself! No way would i pay £27 to watch my club in Division 3 ! swwindon61uk

Wiz - where did it say that the concession goalposts were being moved from 60 to 65? If that's the case then I shall be very careful as to when or if I decide to spend my money, albeit I'm not far off the qualifying age lol!
The pricing structure has been debated to death and it does seem that reducing prices still seems to fail to attract the punters. However I think it mainly comes down to the product on offer and to the casual and even the committed regular non season ticket holder like me the product currently on offer just isn't good enough? With no realistic prospects of advancement for the remainder of this season and almost certainly next I believe that many will question whether they are getting value for money and will either pick and choose games or conclude that they've been priced out of going to games altogether. The signs are not good both for the club and the fans but I don't believe it's realistic for STFC to expect a sizeable proportion of their fanbase to continue to shell out regardless.

Guide said ground being extended upwards at the ends and season tickets there will cost £299! Every seat has a good view can vouch for that.

Mind you he also said they are opening a new £200 million training complex over the road including 8 pitches of differing quality ranging from 'luxury' to 'Crawley' standard, bit of money there of course....

Still can't get my head round £27 a game for Swindon regardless of which League 1 team we are playing think its a big mistake and also a pointless one as basically the standard of League 1 is much of a muchness and certainly some of the gold standard teams (Rotherham?) are unlikely to entice even one extra person to turn up so the price hike could just put people off who were thinking of coming along anyway. It's like the opposite of psychological pricing. Without wanting to sound like a doom monger, the extra pricing and anticipated squad quality reduction through reduced budget makes me think it could be a long hard season and gates down to 6-7,000
I see that £299 is part of the new extenuation and can cost up to £449,sat at the top of new stand.
Also says their maybe potential price increases.
Current season tickets range £450 - £799.
Also would say the lowest prices are for children as i have just looked for tickets against Aston Villa and they range between £40 and £48 for the game.
£299 is for adults which is good.
Yep, appreciate that £299 probably the worst seat in the house but having sat up in the gods yesterday I found the view excellent (albeit level with halfway line) and would be happy with that as an option.

I paid £46 adult and £25 junior tickets and yes that's expensive, but was it value for money I would say yes. A side stand season works out at £31 a game (19 games for £600) which compares to just over twice the max early bird price of £16 for Swindon (23 games at £375)

Good post Wilesy that's my point as above if you take Kids they need to be entertained for the whole afternoon and under Jed I thought we were doing ok with this factor but of late it seems to have gone backwards. I don't ask for much but my two are bored by half time and say they will be good next week LOL. They love R.R. but there is a limit to the times you can laugh at him falling over. Yes we are there for the football at the end of the day but these are the fans for the future.
Yep definitely Jayden they certainly need amusing....

I saw the that it had been moved from 60 to 65 so i think The Wizard is correct.

Can't be done under Power but if had been Andrew Black I would have run a scheme for a few games where 2 months in advance I would have dropped the prices for a chosen game to £10 for an adult ticket, U18'sand over 60's £5 and U10's £0, and marketed it to death around the town by saying I was looking to see what the fanbase really is with a view to stadium redevelopment with a condition that a form was filled in either at the game or in advance to give your views on what you want at the club, what is acceptable pricing to you etc.

Jock,
On the renewal PDF on line,

http://www.swindonto
wnfc.co.uk/documents
/2014-15-st-brochure
247-1363765.pdf

it says that EXISTING season ticket (over 60's) can renew at the concession rate, however it seems that if you are over 60 but under 65 you have to pay the full rate. That is my understanding.If I have it wrong then I'll put my hand up and apologize.

We have nobody, owner or otherwise with the dynamic to do that. I don't even see the cult players like Alan Macca or Ferry who commanded that extra bit of respect. Ranger may have scored goals and caused headlines to be written, but there is nobody with that extra element you seek.

Wiz - thanks for the link - not looked but from what you're saying it seems as though it refers to st holders rather than pay at the gate on the day brigade?
Jayden hi I'm fine Den on hols I think but maybe he's like me - not Much to write home about and you can only say the same thing so many times! I know I'm guilty of that as others have unceremoniously pointed out lol!

Wiz is right there is no charisma out there either in the dug out or in the pitch Wes apart perhaps - for all his faults it was much more entertaining and fun with Pdc even if we knew the inevitable car crash would happen. You always got the impression Macca & Flint Ferry and Ritchie were playing for the cause and I just don't get the same feeling with the current squad.
