I really do wish the term 'Swindle' was born from referees missing decisions to our advantage and the occasional feisty challenge.
I don't remember anyone using the term "swindle" to insult us before about 10 years ago, not sure if it came from the Macari era or more recently? it was never a term Oxford or Bristol fans used pre internet forum days.

Many years ago just post the Macari era, my old boss was Wolves fan and he called us Swindle. Unsure, but if memory serves me right I thought it was due to ticket pricing. We were at home to Wolves and the price of travelling fan admission went through the roof as wolves always sold full allocation. The price was considerably more than what we paid for a ticket and much more than who we previously played at home the week before. So it was no difference to what premiership sides do now with game banding.
Like I said I could be totally wrong and it would not be the first time.

If their manager thought Alzate was 45 yards out when he scored, it could explain why they were so crap.

Interesting, I worked at the club throughout the Macari era (plus Ardiles, Hoddle, Gorman, McMahon and Quinn) and I don't remember there being any uproar about away ticket pricing at all, we were on a par with all other clubs in charging for away fans.

I do remember stewarding the town End that was full of Wolves fans back in the early 90s when away fans were moved there for several games while the ground was developed, that was the only time they ever sold out their allocation at the CG IIRC.

Interesting theory though.

Me too but it was never a term of insult pre internet days, it only seems to be since the turn of the century that it has caught on.

Mansfield are currently on course to miss out on the play offs. We are on course to just about get there. I wonder if the pressure is starting to build on Flipflop?

It would be lovely for Swindon to record a comprehensive victory over Mansfield on October 20 and for that to spell the end of Flitcroft's tenure.

It's always amusing to read these things, to see how delusional fans are.  Given that Stags have had 1 Div 3 season in the last 25 years and a fairly lengthy spell in the Conference, including being locked out of Field Mill.... you'd think they'd know getting up to Div 3 isn't easy. If they win their game in hand, they'll be a point shy of us.... not great but in the mix.

One thing they're not deluded about Reg is that your old mate Flitters is a shit awful manager. They're bang on the money with that assessment...
