then you wormed youre way back in with power.
you and power deserve what you get but what swindon fans dont deserve is you two as you have destroyed our once great club..

I would have found room for Brophy as he always tries to put in a decent shift, and Goddard over Gladwin who has failed to impress since returning. Putting Dabo in there is a 100% joke. No Hylton in the squad, divorce from the club pending then. Fat lady booked to appear later ?

Tonight sums up the season really, a lacklustre first half with the midfield not at the races, Ince excepted (who should have been man of the match again). Defensive errors and we're 2 down. Then a glimmer of hope in the second half only for more terrible defending and young players making mistakes and the opponents are gifted a win.

'Williams Out' banner put up in the Town End at the end only to be ripped down by a steward?!

Then to cap it all we have some of the players dropped for 'preparing badly', Williams must be furious about that. I've heard rumours on this (can't divulge) but if true then oh dear....

Well we now know why Brophy wasn't in there together with Boo and Vigs. One can only hope that we've seen the last of the laughing gas idiot And Vigs will be sold anyway. Brophy has looked very ordinary lately promises much when running with the ball but never delivers. Clearly they were all out on the p!ss or on the wacky baccy.
Bit of a paradox to say that we might have won that game and sometimes the margins between winning and losing are very small. Dabo - who played well save for one error and young Henry thrust into the cauldron whose gaafe will haunt him.
Couldn't help but notice Gladwin's finger to his lips shush to the Arkells after he scored but where's he been since Bolton ? If he played like that in the intervening games we might not be in the depth of 💩💩that we are.
Dave Hockaday was never the most prolific player to wear a Town shirt but he was one of the most workmanlike who always put in a shift and his remarks about Town only turning it on in 20 or 30 minute patches instead of 90 are spot on and the reason we are where we are. For once LW's post match was an honest appraisal. The fact that Town were able to cause Blades a few problems once again shows the fragility of this league - they looked like they could be beaten at times and we didn't get the rub of the green which often goes against teams in the scrapping places. If only we'd shown the same level of grit and determination against the club's all around us.

For those that were not there, plenty of commitment, really good second half with two superb goals from us, spoilt by four gifted goals, two through playing silly buggers at the back, two through poor defending. Even though 3 of the players made individual costly errors, (Dabo, Branco and Colkett), I thought their overall performance was good. Henry was the biggest let down that let them back in, just as he did in the Luton game with his school boy errors, he was also very unsure coming out for the first goal although the initial error was not his mistake. I really don't think he is going to be ready to take over from Vigs next season, potential yes, but he can't continue to make these silly mistakes. Much better from Gladwin when he moved inside, he's been played out of position since he's been here and should be playing in that no 10 role if Williams wants to get the best out of him, not a lot wrong with any of the midfield tonight, Ince his usual committed self, Colkett had some nice touches and scored a cracking goal, Goddard was a bit quiet, but not in his best position filling in on the wing. Thought Conroy had a very good game at the back, Thommo did well and apart from the Dabo sloppy back pass, the back 4 looked although they were coping well. They'll probably be asking how on earth the conceded 4 goals.

Have to say the useless ref Oliver Langford was just as bad as he was at as he was at Eastleigh, well supported by a just as useless linesman once again running the Arkell stand side. I'm not saying they cost us the game, we did that ourselves with the self destruct kamikaze tactics, another disallowed good goal from Obika was given off side by the linesman, some X rated tackles from them didn't even warrant a yellow let alone a straight red. Over all it sums up our situation, teams at the bottom don't get the decisions, those at the top do and without a doubt Langford was up there with the worst we have seen at the CG, although I heard the one at the Vale took some beating.

A draw would have been a fair result, but would still not have been enough with Oldham and Bury winning it hardly matters anymore.

Williams revelation this evening after the game has no doubt opened a can of worms. I hope the players are fined as well by the club and sadly their ommission tonight may well have cost the club its status in League One. It now looks difficult to see a way forward through this mess. We simply cannot have any further hope of survival without Viggs in goal, however that leaves a headache surrounding how do you treat him any differently to the others ? Those that played showed clearly that in the second half there is a team performance in there somewhere and those that did play can have only respect for what they tried to do against a good side which tonight struggled.
Several of us have commented in weeks and months gone by that this season had the same trade marks as Wilsons last season and that history was repeating itself. Regretably this now seems confirmed. Most of us are sure that Williams has had less than a fair deal due to the recruits which came in over the last two summers, that also seems to be confirmed this evening too. Where this leaves the whole club now is a problem as the mess seems very wide spread, but the spirit tonight does show there is a faint glimmer of hope in there, rather unfairly it seems to be down to Williams now to fan the flames of that glimmer to try and turn it into a blaze. I think he will try but I don't envy his odds, but he will try after this evening thats a sure fact. I wish him well with his quest, I doubt if he will ever face a bigger challenge.

i went last night for the first time this season after being a regular attendee since 1980 and my thoughts were, first half very subdued with very little passion shown by us and played already assuming the season was over. Surely with young Henry in goal the defence should have been there to protect him not to give him sloppy back passes Dabo, who i actually thought had a good game apart from that incident and was one of the better players.
second half thankfully was much better but still no desire at times ie. ambling up to take throw ins and free kicks letting the opposition regroup even with the end of the match approaching surely you should make it look as though you want to try and avoid relegation. So frustrating to watch. The annoying thing is some of these players do look good enough at times and 'at times' is not enough.
Thought it was over the top of the stewards to quickly remove the williams out banner that appeared in the town end, thought it was a legitimate inoffensive protest that shows some supporters thoughts, and who can blame them.
two cracking goals by us and only one by utd, the others we gave to them.
as a summary for the future...........Wou
