4 games 7 points

(league that is)

If we achieved that form all season so far, we'd currently be in 3rd. Albeit with other teams around us having games in hand.

I know it's a small sample size to work with, but still, the available data clearly suggests we don't 'need' Doyle. (Although it would still be marvellous to have him back).

The Bradford fans are quite amusing with their Ďswindon couldnít afford himí rhetoric making out themselves to be far superior financially. If you factor in season ticket prices then their income despite crowd size is probably fairly similar in comparison to ours.
Iím sure we could afford Doyle but itís the balance between spending the money and the fact we are unlikely to get any financial return due to his age.

Buy Yates instead.

Iíd be disappointed if we spent big (in STFC terms) money on Doyle. £75k tops for me.

I looked at the Bradford side of things today. It was depressing.

How on earth some of you have been reading through that on a daily basis is beyond me.

Also, I'm not a hugely tribal football fan but if Bradford fail to go up and/or Swindon get promoted (AGAINST ALL THE ODDS) then I might just give it the absolute big guns.

Agree there, there is no way we should be paying 6 figures with him being out of contract end of season and having no real resale value, it should be on a proviso if we go up then we will pay Bradford around £50,000, if we capitulate then they get nothing.

We almost be paying for him to shoot us to promotion with his goals.

Would they risk selling to a promotion rival though...

Surely Col U and FGR are their promotion rivals?

I agree, Cheltenham 3rd on 44 point down to Col U 9th on 41 points and all in between. Look at their fixtures and they have to play 7 games with those teams in that mix plus some just outside that mix. TBF thatís the same for most others I expect but theyíve not set the world on fire and there is a lot of action to unfold between now and the EOS.

Quite a bad miss yesterday from the ginger one. Should have at least hit the target but skied it instead.

And he still hasn't been interviewed by the Bradford press.
And his twitter profile still says he's  Swindon player.

He did set up Vaughanís goal, who is now suspended for 2 games - leaving Doyle as a lone striker.

With those long punts up to him I canít see him breaking his duck any time soon - unless they get a pen.

Away to Colchester Tuesday night,  then away to Mansfield Saturday,  could be a make or break week for Doyle.

Even though, on paper, they are doing OK, there is a clamour to bin off Bowyer. Last thing we need is a new manager there who knows what heís doing!

I haven't seen it myself but I hear he wasn't what you'd call enthusiastic in his celebration when they took the lead, certainly not how he celebrated when we scored, whether he was involved or not.

I still think he'll be back.

Yeah he used to really celebrate when we scored. Doesn't really mean anything though, everyone already knows he didn't want to go back yet here we are....

Nah I know but if there's a place to read into it a little, it's this thread even if only as a bit of fun. Like I've said on twitter, I'll think we'll cope without him, not that we'll have to. Keeping that #28 free
