I have to share this with you as it made me proud.

Tonight I will make the normal treck down to the CG to watch the game. However as it is a school day my little lad unfortunately cannot go.
However tomorrow night he has been invited before the England Holland game to have a coaching course for 15 minutes on the Wembley pitch before the game. Of course how can you turn down this opportunity down for your little boy and I get a free ticket in the process so can't be bad.

Anyway his Mum asks him last night, "Are you looking forward to playing on the Wembley pitch" ?
He says "Yes, but I would rather go with Daddy to watch Swindon vs Burton."

......and then if that didn't make me proud enough he said, "Daddy what kit should I wear my Swindon home top or my Swindon away top."

Makes you proud.........Wear your colours with Pride  Smiley

Brilliant !!

I was at the barbers a fews weeks back with the man child. Bearing in mind the local team down here is Pompey and the barber is a manc when he asked my son "and what team do you support ?" - to hear him say "Swindon Town, just like my dad" meant the world to me.

I am sure one day he'll hate me for it.

You're not actually going to make him watch the England Holland game are you?

All children should be made to sit at the knee of Eric Read - the Yellowsforum uber geriatric hooligan - who will regale them with tales of derring-do in years gone by.

By doing this it is hoped that any attendee will not grow up to be such a pathetically sad old bastard who gets his rocks off by living in the past and impressing all those around him with his detailed knowledge of - allegedly- charging down Manchester Road.

One can only hope he has never been allowed to breed

If you'd bought him up correctly he wouldnt need to ask what colour to wear at Wembley!

Out of interest, Banbury, which teams are most supported around your way?  You'd think there would be a smattering of Oxford fans, but you're probably no further from Northampton and Coventry as well up there.  Or is it mostly Villa, Birmingham etc.?

My son wears one of the Green burmah sponsored Town shirts from the early 90's to football training every week.

Just went through my son's clothes and realised he has 7 Town shirts- he's only 7! My wife thinks some should be given to charity but I have genuinely been able to say that he wears them all. Apart from his Charlie Austin shirt...

When he grows out of them, put them away for safe keeping for when he is old enough to appreciate them even more. Don't chuck them out or give away. He'll thank you for it one day.

I've just found a bunch of my Swindon old Swindon tops (minus a couple of the black and blue away kits I had, no idea where they've gone!), you should never get rid of old shirts. My little boy is getting a Swindon kit for his 2nd birthday, which just happens to be the 25th March. My girlfriend isn't too pleased I'm going to Wembley, mind... Cheesy
