I'm just relieved it appears he may not be another Allardyce clone, so I can like him.

Think his name cropped up when Heywood made into the hall of fame.
The tone of the resulting debate was one of general disapproval. Could be wrong of course.
He seemed popular with the masses during his time here.

PV mentioned comedy goals.
Picking the ball up before it had gone of play & Torquay scoring from the free kick was amusing.
The head high challenge and last minute penalty to Hartlepool wasn't so funny.

Wonder if the tailing off of form might have been more to do with Malpas taking over?

Always though he might have played at a higher level with some better coaching.

The head high challenge where he kicked the ball, was no where near Adam Boys, was outside the penalty area and the offence should have resulted in an indirect free kick even if it was in area.

Harsh to pin that one on Ifil.

Ifil was Ifil - had all the physical traits and attributes to be a quality defender but no footballing brain and had to be hand held through games from a mental standpoint.

Sadly that football intelligence never really came along as he got older and more experienced.

He did the give the referee a decision to make, albeit made incorrectly.
But as you say, football intelligence was an issue.

Don't see many indirect free kicks given for similar challenges these days.
They tend to be interpreted as reckless play now, regardless of contact.

I'm sure that a free kick was given against Shaun Taylor once for heading a ball a few inches off the ground.
Dangerous heading.  Smiley

 Interestingly Phil Brown played against the Town 13 times as a player, but never won  Smiley

 He also played in all of the 4 epic LC games v Bolton in Ossie's time.

Can he take the mantle of this millenium's greatest Swindon manager from Andy King?
