SWINDON TOWN: Ferry winner delights Di Canio

Swindon Advertiser: Swindon Town's Simon Ferry Swindon Town's Simon Ferry

SWINDON Town have started the season better than many at the club had predicted, according to Paolo Di Canio, but the Robins boss’ own ambitions have yet to be satiated.

Town sit fourth in the League One table following their 1-0 win at Shrewsbury on Saturday, as Simon Ferry scored the only goal of a scrappy game in Shropshire.

Less than a month ago, Di Canio told the local press that he would be happy to see his side sitting in a top-six or top-eight position come the end of October, at which time he said his players would know each other and his own methods well enough to begin a speedy rise up the division.

However, in half the time Swindon have doubled expectations in Wiltshire by winning three matches in a row in the league and now find themselves hanging onto the coattails of second-placed Notts County, who lead the Robins by just a single point in a congested top seven.

And while Di Canio accepted that, for some, Town are way ahead of schedule, the Italian suggested that he had secretly always been aiming higher than what was publicly stated.

“We should have a few more points,” he told the Advertiser. “But in a realistic way, not in the way we lost points, our general position I think everybody – maybe myself not completely but everybody who signed at the beginning of season – thinks is better than we thought. “In the way we reached this level, in the period of the season we are in and the ways I can see my team improve I can tell you I’m very happy.

“I told my players to try to get as many points as they can now and not to have regrets. “Our target doesn’t change but the fact that we are closer than what we thought is something which can encourage us and help us keep going and believe in what we are doing.

“When I started it was obvious that, even if I played in this league with 12-year-old kids, I want to stay at the top.

“But we have to be realistic – to build a team, six players, another five two or three weeks ago – is not easy.

“It’s not easy to change and then rotate the players after a fantastic game in the cup. It’s not easy.”

Goals from Ferry , or anyone else, are always welcome. Simon is a firm favourite because he works hard and has a good bit of flair and imagination.


If you keep changing all the faces then you do make a lot of work for yourself. Canioman seems to like the challenge that sets him. He must be on a diet of blood pressure pills with his coffee.

Roll on tomorrow, Game on.

And the headline has what to to with he article?
.
Ferry is not mentioned once!
.
As for the actual article the best thing is the main bi boys we were (including bookies) are not ahead of us
.
Tranmere may surprise everyone and stay there - but I doubt it - so we are neck an neck with MK our main rivals and close to Notts who are likely to be there or there abouts

Nothing like three wins on the bounce to silence the doom merchants...
*
If we can get to 20 points after 10 games that's a great return. said at the start PDC should target 92 points (or more) and we are bang on course for that.

Well done Town...

Sorry - you are right his name is mentioned - but still not in relation to the actual article - table delights PdC would be far more accurate!
.
Got woke up really early yesterday - so thought I would look at L1 over the last 5 years
.
Champions have 96 on average and automatic has 88 over that period
.
Champions have normally also been pretty much runaways - Norwich in our PO year and Charlton last year for example - so that has really boosted the Champions average (Charlton got 101!!!)
.
Currently we are on course for 88 (THAT IS NOT A PREDICTION - SIMPLE MATHS) so would be in line for automatic promotion
.
Should we get the max return from Colchester and Bury and be on 23 from 11 we would be on course for 96 - so Champions
.
Obviously a long way to go and anyhting can happen - but PdC is right to be delighted at the start we have made

He won't though, unless his hamstring problem is not as serious as thought and it clears up quickly.
Shame if he misses out , the team is better with him in it. IMHO.

Bi boys - is that politically correct? But do agree that its good that the the bi boys are not getting ahead of us - my predictive text is going potty.

snippet of pdc interview on fl show, he seemed very subdued and said he was tired. strange thing to say, i guess it must be emotionally draining even for him, but hope it's nothing more than that, just seemed a bit odd.

Southside, it's been a big week for him. Let's not try and read to much into it and let's definitely not turn it into a negative.

I posted yesterday that I didn't think there was another team out there that could be as excited by future prospects than us. Can anyone think of any other team with more excitement? It truely is a golden time. Get on the Di Canio Express, hold on tight and enjoy the ride.

Brilliant times.

Good post dreams, no one knew of such a team yesterday no one will know of one today.

Southside i heard him say he was tired but due to the way he words things i dismissed it as lost in translation, if you've missed the Di Canio Express then get on Paolo`s crazy train.


We will need to be on our toes tomorrow night i'm looking forward to it not very often i get to see a midweek game,love watching under the floodlights.

Change of topic, went down to ticket office today to enquire on purchasing Villa tickets. Told that pricing and allocation to Villa would be agreed to day, Ours will go on sale tomorrow or Wednesday for season ticket holders only via office or over the phone, (chap I spoke to confirmed our ST numbers are nearly 6k). Couldn't say when they will go on sale to the general public, but guess it would be within a week or two week.

Would be nice if they make an offer for S/T holders to take a friend, I'm looking at 5, but only have 3 season tickets in the Arkells to use. Can see seats being sold out within a fortnight, so anyone who wants to be there should get in early.

Earlydoors but I don't see any side that is likely to run away with the league and neither do I see anyone we should fear. However every game will be a challenge. For me Saurday showed that we have moved on from last year. I think they deserved more than they got from us last year but on Saturday we matched them physically and then showed much more quality. I can understand why Paolo found it hard to rotate players but with such big squad I think he feels he has to so that as the season develops he has a genuine group of 18/19 players who can be used at any time. That is where he sees his advantage at crunch time. Makes it hard for ones like me who think that consistency brings rewards but I agree with others where would you get more enertainment than with us.

Hows that sticking up for him then, my post to him didn't warrant the need for someone to stick up for him, you can of course agree with him that they are our main rivals that will finish second or not but you can`t have both or are you going to "stick up" for him on every post he makes whether it warrants the need or not.

On a serious note with all of these Tue-Sat-Tue match sequences and the depth of detail PDC goes into, he must be burning the candle at both ends AND then burns so much emotional energy during the games.

Fortunatley after tomorrow we then have 2 weeks without any Tuesday games, so should provide a little bit of a let up for everyone. (Including fans bank balances)

Cheer up cheer up cheer up all. We're going to win the league, who cares who comes second. We may even go further in the League Cup and sure as eggs are eggs Paolo will be managing us in the Championship, but let's not have this negative thought of a season or two. We're going straight to the Premiership. Believe comrades believe. (It worked for the European Ryder Cup team). Nothing is impossible.

As Jose said "All men die but not all men live and you made me feel alive again this week*." Delete Jose and take out Europe Ryder Cup Team add Town fans and Swindon.

Back to back to back promotions coming.

LR, you do make me chuckle sometimes. You cite the bookies' odds to support your argument that MK are our main rivals but you choose to disregard them when it comes to Sheffield United. The bookies know best - as long as they agree with LR's predictions! With less than 20% of the season completed, I don't see how anyone can know who our main rivals are going to be. As it happens, I agree with your prediction that both MK and the Town will be near the top at the end of the season. But it's not fact; it's just our bit of speculation. Everything can change very quickly. Just a few weeks ago we were going through a spell of relegation form. There are plenty of clubs who can turn out to be our main rivals.
.
Good win on Saturday. Here's hoping for another one tomorrow. Colchester might prove to be tougher opposition than they would have been a week ago.

Getting back to Saturdays game, because there has been so little fact written about it by The Adver, more articles around it, but no detail on it, does anybody who actually went have an opinion on Bessone. So far we have seen little of him, and when he has played his overall skills and performance do little to impress from what little I've seen and the rest read. Not a lot from a player who is from a Prem club, Swansea, or is it a matter of Bessone=Bess-gone, or is he better than that.

Wiz, I'm not going to judge Bessone, as I've not seen him play, but I always think it's a bit risky to assume players are going to be high quality because they've come from the top flight. We could probably all name several players who've come to us from that division and turned out to be complete cack. And it's not too long ago that we had players at STFC who had no business playing in the Football League at all, let alone the third tier.

Den,

What you say is quite right. I have seen him at CG and thought he looked totally lost and bewildered, and tbh a bit of a liability in that he wantonly gave away possession. It seems that although he has been with us a number of weeks his performance, only going on a few comments on Saturday on here, has not really improved. So is he a footballer, or somebody that has kicking ability and can run fast. I think Alan O'Brien would get past him all day, every day, and AOB can't even get a club, let alone a game.
So my view is from one game, and that was why I was asking for views from those that have seen him more than me, to get a fair assessment.
Getting my Villa ticket tomorrow, oh yes !

The thing is with written humour, as in verbal, it depends on the receiver. the same words uttered in differing tones or with different mannerisms can be taken in so many different ways, and on forums like this, the delivery is difficult.

A new day tomorrow, a new dawn, a new beginning, and a fresh game at CG.
Let us all hope that this time tomorrow night we have played a good game, scored some important goals and another three points. Our visitors may well travel in vain, and collect nothing. When that happens I always remember that awful journey, awful night and simply awful pitch a couple of years ago at Stockport ?, during Wilsons tenure. What a night ! Lets hope we go home happy tomorrow.
