Didn't think yesterday was too bad. We had the ball and were on the front foot for the majority. Taylor was mom his deliveries caused havoc and it was unbelievable how none resulted in a goal.

Just couldn't get the ball under to get a proper shot away.

Charles-cook had nothing to do, his kicking is an improvement on vigs. Quite small for a keeper

Preston again looked Good, turn of pace and won everything. Best iv seen purkiss play, I usually count how many hoofs he makes but tried to look for feet unlike Lancashire.

The problems were linganzi, he does the same job, need someone to drive the ball forward and create from cm. Anderson had a shocking game, missed chances from losing the ball, nothing came off unless you count his shin. Norris was ok felt sorry him based on Anderson. Goddard in my eyes should be the number 10 role.

Result was harsh but didn't get those shots to proper deserve the win. Would be nice for flitcroft to analyse these mistakes and try a formation change or change of personel to actually rectify them instead of the same performance.

I guess at the end of the day, Lincoln's line up was better than ours.... Preston, Lancashire being unable to compete with Vickers, Long, Dickie........ Knott, Green

Utter nonsense.

I don't really buy into the implied "Swindon fans are crap" tone of this thread.

- Crowds decline when results are poor and club gets relegated
- We want winning football when they're losing which requires a complete change of the current style
- We want more entertaining football when they're winning (whilst still winning of course)
- The players (i.e. temporary employees) disgracefully don't appear to care for the club as much as we do
- If we lose the players get booed regardless of how much effort and passion they showed
- Referees are shit and have cost us countless games (whilst gifting us none)
- We consider that we are a bigger club than we are and deserve more success than we get
- A lot of our fellow supporters are morons
- We are so disgusted that we're never going again despite having not missed a single game for the last 120 years

All of that could be describing the fans of any football club in Britain and it's hardly surprising.  Supporting a football club and voluntarily investing emotional energy in something you can never have any significant control over is patently irrational so why should anyone expect rational behaviour from fans? 

It's admittedly based on ad-hoc observation rather than any empirical evidence but I would say that Swindon's fanbase, on average, is better than most.

Do we have a similar problem to England where players are played generally out of position in order to try and get them onto the pitch?

For example I have read that Goddard, Mullin and Woolery are generally deployed on the wing, rather than their preferred positions. Goddard is a number 10 and Mullin and Woolery are strikers and not wingers.

England are trying to shoehorn Rashford and Sterling onto the pitch in positions where they are not playing for their club sides and they look generally out of sorts.

Is it just a case of round pegs, round holes?

Spot on BO, guy behind moaning at Goddard saying that all he can do is cut inside!  I asked him what he thought he should do as a right sided player out on the left wing!!  Mullin is not a winger either, he needs to play down the middle.

Elsnik should be back Sat which will make a big difference.

Wycombe being undefeated away makes me think a nailed on home win. It's very Swindon thing to do, before getting thumped by struggling vale the following sat.

I would say broadly speaking, that it is more or less the same as most other Clubs' fan bases but definitely better than some on here would have you believe. Our away support in particular (again purely observational but based on 30+ years of attending away games) has only ever ranged between good and excellent and is certainly much better than the majority of Clubs in the lower two divisions.

Crap football in a crap league with crap results is only going to result in a miserable outcome and bad feeling amongst fans. The problem is fans have watched boring/turgid/inane/impotent performances for 3 season ticket cycles.

The second half on Tuesday, whilst frustrating and lacking quality in the final half/third of the pitch at least showed we were trying to play around a bit and we created more opportunities. More of that and we'll win more at home and we should see more attacking accuracy, luck and results.

However, it's hard to keep the faith and hope we can start building up consistency. It's still early season so fingers crossed I will turn glad all over and resign this post to the archives and chomp down my words, but prospects don't look great.
