10 years ago we played this team against Boston away. I am refusing to believe the current lot is our worst ever side after seeing this.

People who say this is THE worst Swindon team ever either have short memories or have not seen many bad seasons at STFC.

I would argue that this current crop is one of the worst *since* that era Smiley

I wouldn't say this current side are the worst. They're just the most frustrating side i've ever seen.
Cue a certain someone to now talk about a side from 1958 that surpasses that.

My thoughts too, we can be bloody good one game but absoloutely woeful the next, there is no consistency. It's not the best team we have had but not the worst either and got some real quality but they just frustrate fans with lack if consistency and looking like they don't give a toss sometimes.

Jack Smith was a far better full back than anything we have presently. Ifil would possibly be an improvement.

Niche wasn't too bad, didn't develop his potential I think.

The 55/56 side is generally regarded as being right up with 10/11 in the all time shitness stakes. This despite the best efforts of Maurice Owen and Bob Edwards, both of whom got to double figures for goals and Sammy Burton between the sticks. That season the Board recruited players, and handed them over to trainers, so no manager as such (sound familiar?)

It was on the road that most problems came....with even more 4 or more thrashings than the current side have had this season so far.

 I said ages back that I'll be amazed if Norris, Delf, Hylton score 10 between them, over few course of the season....it's been good to have enjoyed the week, but it needs to be backed up tomorrow, we're still a point worse off than that 10/11 side at the same time so plenty of scope for things to go horribly wrong.

 Interestingly that 55/56 finished bottom of Div 3 S, which meant an application for re-election, in which we saw off non- league Posh, having already dispatched the plucky  non-leaguers in the Cup, infront of 23,000+ at the CG after a replay.

I would hazard a guess, though, that there weren't as many other truly shit teams in the league as there is now. That's what will save us - that and 6 points from Rovers and the piss stains.

Looking forward to tomorrow - a rekindling of hope of sorts.

People who say this is THE worst Swindon team ever either have short memories or have not seen many bad seasons at STFC.

If you notice, usually the most idiotic opinions start with the sentence "I've been watching the Town for x years and this is..."

It's not like Christian Roberts was bad either!

Apart from the goalie the squad up to January has been as bad as i can remember and also the atmosphere or lack of.This division as a whole is the lowest quality ever.
