Danger Danger *HOOF* Matt Heywood.

Is that meant to fit to 'Danger High Voltage' by Electric Six? That's how it reads in my head.

FWIW I think a win today could be an indicator of a good little run and a push up the table.

Defeat would suggest to me that it's going to be up and down this season. I've backed Walsall today so hoping to lose some money.

Definate no to the first one definate yes to the 2nd. Matt fucking Heywood? whatever next? Matt Hewlett?

My guess is Joey Beauchamp.

Not sure how this works, but Matty Heywood comes in at number 64 on the appearances list, was nothing more than an OK Div 3 stopper, and fucked off to Bristol City at the earliest opportunity.  I suppose it's a harmless bit of fun.

There are those amongst us who would argue he's the sort of thing we need now, but he wouldn't get anywhere near the current side.

Honestly cannot predict which Swindon team turns up. Walsall tend to draw quite a lot so I'm going for 1-1. Be a shame if Tommy Smith to lose his place in the team.

Didn't need the useless fucker then and even though we are shit at the back he certainly ain't the answer now or at any point in between.

Hope we keep the same team and produce a similarly gutsy performance as with Rochdale, the only game I've really enjoyed this season.
This but I think Kasim will come in for Smith!

There's no way that Williams should be changing a side that won 3-0. Kasim on the bench, Smith to start please.

Yeah heard some fan randomly shout it after a trademark Heywood hoof and it's stuck with me ever since.

TbF to Matty, Kingy brought him in to the hopeless side that T*dd had left behind, because he noted our vunerabilty to crosses into the box. Matty played half of that season and we did improve and just about stayed up. He was one of those who'd give you 40+ games a season, and was a part of the decent side of the Mooney season.

Town fans don't mind mediocrity as long as they see commitment, after all as a fan of a traditional Div 3 club, you're going to see plenty of it, it was the fucking off to Bristol City, that did for his reputation. You need to be a Shaun Taylor to get away with that, status intact.

Heywood when he arrived was better than what we had but is no hall of famer under any circumstances.

As for Shaun Taylor, he is one of the few players that could have left us and even went to the Pox with his  status as a hero still intact, not many can say that....ever.

Shaun, of course, was helped by seemingly being shown the door by the Steve McMahon. I'd put Shaun into the legend category.

I've no idea how this H o F thing works, but Matty played 200 games in an interesting period for the club.

If it's just viewed as a bit of fun, then fair enough. I'd imagine there are some who get asked but can't be bothered with it. You're finished as a player at a young age, so if you want to come back and feel the vibe again, why not.

One of the things which the club has got badly wrong, probably since McMahon, is having an old player kicking around somewhere who gets what the club is about. Zippy fitted this bill for a while but PdC did for him. Fraser is sort of around and does a bit, which is good, and appointing Alan Mac hopefully a positive.

pulling them out of a hat, "one greedy bastard" and "hoof" greeted him on his returns to the CG. legend.

I guess qualification is simply playing for us for a few seasons.

Cast iron 1-1, as it pretty much always seems to be against Walsall.
