Hang on. You made a point of telling everyone when you were going to reading games?

Yeah I do on the odd occasion as it's 10 minutes from my house and a lot of mates are Reading supporters - but I still watch the Town. In fact watching Reading makes me appreciate Town a lot more! I've never watched Reading when Town were at home.

There's a general vibe, particularly on Twitter, that people love talking about how much they dont go anymore. I don't even think it's true seeing as we're still getting around about 6k (ish).

I still watch Town whenever I can, and would love to go more.

It's still interesting to me to hear people talk about watching other teams, comparing the experience etc.

That's quite some over-reaction from you...

 Oh boo hoo, Swindon arenít doing very well so Iím going to stop going and go watch some other more successful teams instead or do something else

Pathetic

Actually, thatís harsh. Will edit

If/when Swindon town football clubs starts being competitive, winning games and making headlines for on the pitch achievements again, these fans will return and/or be replaced

I might be adopting a Thai team when the new season starts. That's nothing to do with Swindon's performance, though.

Teams in other countries who will never play vs Swindon competitively have always been exempt Cheesy

Actually what is the standard like over there?

I was worried when moving abroad about missing Swindon, but they went and streamed all the games for me.  It's been horrific - watched more games than I have done since 1993-97 period in quite probably our worst period.

I have enjoyed the Atlanta Utd games mind, the atmosphere is pretty good and the stadium is insane.   I do wonder how it will change when they have a poor season though - for now, they remain really positive even if behind and playing badly - will that remain when it's 46 games after 46 games of mediocrity?  I guess not.

Hopefully you will let us know how it is if you can indeed remember! foreign leagues are very interesting, seeing what sort of crowd is there, if there is any atmosphere and the quality of the actual football played, very interesting stuff, also what beer they have other than Singha!

Quote
Craic - pronounced as crack.
Irish word for fun/enjoyment that has been brought into the English language. usu. when mixed with alcohol and/or music.
'Bhi craic agus ceol againn' : We had fun and music.
Fun doesn't really cut it though. General banter, good times had by all.
Also, a person who is good fun/great company.

It can also take on another meaning if headed to a red-light district.

I think the difference these days is that people are actively watching other teams these days.I am still going to games to be fair just not as many. I find myself sitting there bored now or listening to fans arguing. That's pathetic
