There are still 30 points to play for and we're only 3 points below 5th bottom. Not sure Williams and Embleton are able to motivate or instil the confidence in the players to turn our fortunes around so let it be us, the supporters. Let's really get behind the lads, give them a lift and let's try and get us out of this mess. It's us, at the end of the day, who'll suffer if we go down.

How long will it take the head coach to get Gladwin and Brophy to interchange today, it usually takes at least 45 minutes before he comprehends the good or weak points of the opposing fullbacks. Despite the critics, Gladwin is capable of better than what we have seen of late, but if Williams continues to put round pegs in square holes, there is only one person to blame and that is the chess player that can't think 3 moves ahead.

Club is in dire straights, no depth of squad, can't keep clean sheets, only Ajose on loan can score. Norris who is ours is hopeless. To be one nil up away from home and concede immediately, that's U9 defending. That's goodbye to L1 with 60% possession and no cutting edge. L2 will be more of the same as we will lose our best in close season. Shambolic. In 2 years Chippenham could be our local derby.

This side is a million miles away from the squad which was humiliated at Wembley and wouldn't survive in EFL2.

And so it goes on and on! the club is finished! it's Power FC just his "TOOL" to make him money! Power,Sherwood and the two youth coaches are pathetic, I don't bother going now and won't until Powers gone! anyone that renews or buys a new season ticket must need a visit from the men in white coats, back to back relegation under Powers non-league set-up,I've been banging on about it all season! we are simply hopeless and clueless! maybe the rose tinted happy clappers will listen now?? the fat lady is now taking bookings for the wake! Power is slowly killing STFC by a thousand cuts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!

Very unlikely to get out of this now. Poor summer recruitment. Gave Ajose away and didn't replace him. Didn't take enough loan players in summer so got caught out with lack of quality. Sherwood appointment disrupted the club completely. Jan recruitment should have been done early in Jan not last minute Williams a nice guy and clearly is giving his best shot but is obviously out of his depth and Power has either bottled the big decision or taken the cheap option depending on your view.

Game over Mr Power, you have treated many followers with contemptible mugging off for too long,many lies have been told for sure and your plan has failed, I ask my fellow followers to make your voices heard towards him on Tuesday and make him realise he is not welcome at our club! The whole set up is non league and our club has been broken in half I'm so sad to say,I saw this was coming some time ago and was insulted by others on this forum so I'll say no more on that only to say I'm a genuine follower for many years and have lost the club I've supported by someone's need to support over interests,Swindon town as I've always known it has gone and is now a development team for young players and coaches who are no where near the standard required to run a professional league side, from day one when this individual appeared I knew he was trouble with his past record and businesses,so many things have been fabricated and so many questions need answering, time for the trust to make some noise and get our club back and find a consortium to get him out before any more damage is done and we are playing Solihull moors on a Tuesday night.

As for Luke Williams and Ross embleton, these two probably can not believe the position they are in getting paid four figure salary every week,they should Never have been given the privelage in the first place, they are youth team development coaches (kids football) will never ever be anything else in the game,out of there depth head scratching novices at this level,desperate listening to there stories and fairy tales and **** right embarrassing!

This season has been bungled and I dont want anyone telling me that they`re good enough to stay up because they`re definitely bad enough to go down.

And now, the end is near And so I face the final curtain My friend, I'll say it clear I'll state my case, of which I'm certain I've lived a life that's full I've travelled each and every highway But more, much more than this I did it Power's way Regrets, I've had a few But then again, too many to mention I did what I had to do But messed it up without exemption I planned each charted course Each careful step along the Town Way And more, much more than this I did it Power's way Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew When I bit off more than I could chew But through it all, when there was doubt I messed it up and spat it out I faced it all and I stood tall And did it Power's way And there was no happy ending to the song, we are relegated!!!!!

Some good choices above and here is something a bit different, 'You've lied to me a thousand times before', sadly sung in German but Andrea Berg is not bad if you get my drift, a better watch than STFC right now for sure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63YqwRLgto0

I went today with my son and it was pitiful stuff. There is just no guts or fight in his team, other than from Ince and it is difficult to see how this will change with the current regime. That said, I can't see how not renewing my season ticket will help and renewed mine and my lads last week. Can't wait for the season to end.

Putting money in POISON Powers pocket is not helping. Waiting until just before next season starts is best if you must buy. Staring the despicable owner Power of cash is the only way to get rid if the piece of sh. T.

Can't see there is any evidence to suggest this would be the case and just sounds like a poor excuse not to support the team. What would waiting achieve, other than it costing me more money?

If Power was sincere when he said Williams had been given the right tools to do the job and now it was down to him to deliver, given our position why not sack him now and bring in a new manager so things can be put right ready for next season. No good doing it after the end of the season, we need somebody now so the ground work for next season starts now.
