As we all know, this league, by and large, is dog shit. If by sheer good luck plus a little bit of manager nous it wouldn’t be outrageous to think we could win 7 or 8 of the 10 remaining games.

Highly unlikely i grant you after witnessing some of the turgid crap we’ve seen so many times so far this season.

Well I popped over to the Saarfend forum to gauge opinion on his joining us, in the main they seem a fairly friendly bunch who think he could do well for us.

Quote
Presumably, if he doesn't get them in the playoffs, he doesn't retain the job. Got nothing to lose I guess.

A good job if he does keep it though. Quite a big club with a good history. Some may argue that it's a bigger and better job than managing Southend. Obviously not while they are in League 2 but if they do get promoted, a lot of managers would probably rather be at Swindon than us. They have better facilities and more money so a decent job to get. Will watch that closely.

Good luck to the Robins. They will need it.

I remain happy with the job Brown did during his time at the club. Good luck to him and I wish him well.

He had to go but the reality is PB delivered on his goal of getting us promoted from league 2.

Wish him well, he was a good manager for us, things just went irretrievably wrong for him here in the end.

good luck to him sure he will do a good job for them as he did for us

Yes, very interesting. Good luck to him. Swindon are a bigger club than us and should really be in the Championship I'd say. I doubt PB will get them there, but he may well get them up to League One. We really do need to move to a new stadium before we can call ourselves a club as big as Swindon or Plymouth or even Oxford United. A 16,000 capacity stadium with excellent stands (and toilets!). League Cup winners 1969. One season in the Premiership and 16 in the Championship (or Division 2 as was). Swindon has a population of 215,000 and no sea to the south to reduce its catchment area.

I really don't undertstand the animosity towards him. Yes, his last six months were soured and he made some very questionable decisions in regards to Ranger, but I will be eternally gratefully for that Joe Piggott goal and one the absolutely best days of my life on 23rd May 2015. I wish him nothing but the best - unless we face them then I hope he gets stuffed

Good luck to him. I hope he gets them promoted as it would be very interesting to see him back at Roots Hall next season.
I can see Michael Timlin being tempted back there and rewarded with the captains armband if Brown did get the job full time.

Was a decent manager ,as someone said earlier just all went irretrievably wrong this season, Mainly i believe because of the number of injuries and that man the lone Ranger.

Good stuff in the main, at least the comments on their forum are a bit more encouraging than the hatchet job from Twitter posted on here a few days ago.

Yes in the main their fans seem to have liked him, certainly early on, it just seemed to turn sour towards the end.

Also encouraging to see that the consensus seems to be "Did OK until gamble on Ranger helped derail things". Which hopefully means we won't be seeing that gobshite back here

He was there for around 5 years, wasn't he? Quite a good innings for a manager.

Timlin back could be a possible, he named him captain early on in his Southend career.

Always remember the tactic of being ahead or drawing and bringing on Timlin to shore up the midfield and dropping points when the opposition pissed through the hole he inevitably left. Also remember him getting one of the biggest shittings I've seen in 40 odd years of watching Town  when le played left back v Stockport against their excellent right winger.
Saying that he's faring a lot better than we are. Nothing against the lad and probably a player that would be ok now.

One memory of Timlin that sticks with me is him trying to say 'philosophy' in a pre-season interview. He just couldn't do it.

Anthony Pilkington? TBF hes done alright for himself since he left them, good player who would roast a good fullback let alone a stand in one.

March 3rd 2007 in the away game, Timlin played the whole game but got shifted to LB when Vincent went off.

Looking at the side that day my god we were shit, many unmemorable names played that day. There are actually not THAT many players that I would have here now TBH.

Phil SMITH   , Jamie VINCENT, Ashley WESTWOOD, Jerel IFIL, Jack SMITH   , Christian ROBERTS, Michael TIMLIN, Patrick NOUBISSIÉ, Ricky SHAKES, Lee PEACOCK, Blair STURROCK   
Subs Aaron BROWN, Andy NICHOLAS, Michael POOK, Lukas JUTKIEWICZ, Jon STEWART

How Stockport have fallen since then.

There's apparently a press conference today with Brown. I don't know what time, though.

It's on Twitter now. They've just introduced McGivern, so that signing has been completed.

Pilkington - that's the fella. Absolute quality that day. Out of that team JJ I'd take Vincent, Peacock and Jutlkievicz. I'd completely forgotten about Noubbissie.

Sounds like many players got away with a lot and thinking they are billy big bollocks?!
