Seems only fair we avoid relegation by winning both games.

Oxford are there for the taking for sure. On a bit of a poor run, can't score any goals (but quite solid defensively) and with injury problems. Massive game for us in our fight against relegation, we really have to take our chances here.

I'm going for a 2-0 win.

Twine, Pitman and Broadbent will put these to bed. 3-1.

They have a habit of bottling big games under Robinson.

Hopefully Taylor's cuntish antics will catch up with him in this game and he loses his head. It will be an ugly game and we've got more derby suited players than them this season in my opinion. They play some nice footie but not sure they will have the balls. Unfortunately it's been the other way around in most of the recent clashes.

But most importantly - we need the points regardless of who we're playing.

To be fair, the reporter suggested that a couple of the players having handbags means that there is an unhappy dressing room when in reality emotions can often run high in a dressing room/training ground and arguments happen all the time, regardless of how happy the squad is.

He doesn't tend to like any form of questioning but it's part of his job. As I stated previously, Hawes (or anyone) could ask him what he had for lunch or how his day is going and the prick would get defensive. If he's in a job as his, he should expect questioning from the media - no matter how stupid.

A good example is how both Eddie Jones and Farrell dealt with the interviewer post-match. She was desperately trying to get an angry response but they both largely rebuffed and wouldn't be drawn. El Shezza get's annoyed by the local press, national would have him for dinner.

The way Sheridan barely processes the Adver question before going loco says, to me, that there might be previous. Irked by previous questioning etc.

Not that the reaction was acceptable/helpful/needed 24 hours before a derby.

To me, it seems this way a little. He gets incredibly irked by the littlest criticism. It's not even like someone is on a wind up with him. He should be able to answer questions and if he doesn't think they are worthy or relevant then a simple "No comment" or "I'm not discussing that today, next question thanks". It's likely he rarely listens to the question posed, ready to go on the defensive before later realising they asked him his favourite way of cooking potatoes or something.

If I, a serial TEF ranter (own admission, I own my faults ;) ) can see the simplicity of how to conduct oneself at a very specifically timed press conference then so should he. You only have to get through 30mins to an 1hr and then you can head home or ring your mate/wife and moan at them.

As others said. He doesn't help himself. More reason to see why he's incredibly outdated.

Highlighted this bit because while you're right that emotions run high and arguments happen all the time, they're usually in the places you mention i.e. behind closed doors not on the side of the pitch. That bit is unusual and not unreasonable for local press to ask about.

Thank you - Just listened this morning.

Doesn't help himself by initially saying that 'nothing happened' and 'I don't know what happened to tell you the truth'. Then apparently hes 'not interested in it' and he's 'totally forgotten about it'.

He should have just acknowledged the fact that something happened, it was something of nothing, high jinx that went too far and its been sorted out internally. That would have been the end of it.

Needs to be much better than the very disjointed effort in the second half on Saturday.

Would take a defeat if it meant staying up.
A double and L1 status for next season would be even better.
Two in a row and all that.

We've never lost at home to them on a Tuesday night.
Banishment to Z'ha'dum for Sheridan if we lose.

If we can manage to play as well as we did 1st half at Accrington we will beat them, if we play as well as we did at Lincoln we will easily beat them, even play as well as at Sunderland last week we will win.

If we play like we did in the 2nd half on Saturday, against Wigan, against Crewe and at Portsmouth then they will beat us, probably with ease.

They haven't won since 14th Feb, a run of 2 defeats and 4 draws with only 1 goal scored and just 4 conceded in that run.

We haven't done the double over this bunch of bastards since 2000-01, coincidentally that the last time we managed to beat the scum at home, a run of 2 defeats and a draw (even though we won the drawn game on penalties but that "doesn't count" if you listen their fans).

Before the game in 2000-01 we were undefeated at home vs the Pox in 18 games with Town winning 12 games and 6 being drawn.

Lets start that run going again.

I hope and expect us to aim to win the game not sit back and try and soak up any pressure and hit them on the break....but knowing Sheridan's tactics as we do it will probably be a 5-4-1 with us hoofing the ball any time it comes near to anyone and hoping it gets to someone in red.

TBF I voted for him as my MotM on Saturday, he led the line really well, won lots of long balls and found a Town player with almost all his lay offs, his goal was a proper poachers goal, he reads the game well but alas his legs have almost gone now and this will be his last season at this level for us or anyone.

Yeah I know JJ, what I said was tongue in cheek, he made his goal on Saturday look very easy. I think he has 8 for the season now and to get nearly double figures in a team that cannot be described as creative is pretty good.

I think you're a little harsh on Palmer Venks, he blows hot and cold for sure but I think he's done quite well in some games, he has good energy and covers the ground, him and Lyden could be decent partnership.  His ball retention definitely needs improvement obviously.

Yeah Twine needs to play sat in the number 10 role for me. Almost as I posted earlier in my "hope it is" line up.

Personally I would prefer

                   Trueman
Odimayo    Conroy   Broadbent  Thompson
                 Lyden     Palmer
Garrick              Twine                  Payne

I respect your opinion mate but I haven't seen any of the opening up games you speak of yet.

I hope I am wrong and he plays a blinder but for me hes been really really poor and a weak link in the middle of the park, probaby has a pass completion rate of under 20% I would think.

To be clear that's from the BBC sport app. Don't know who decides the formations on that, but they usually describe it differently from the BBC Wilts commentators e.g. when we were playing 4-2-3-1 (or 4-4-1-1 for PP) in recent weeks until Saturday, the BBC Sport app usually had it as 3-5-2, even though Andrew Hawes was clearly describing 4 at the back

When the players get the ball, thereís literally no plan of what to do next. No structure to the play. No sense of who should be where. Only that the order seems to be, make sure youíre not showing, and at least 10 yards away. Itís anti-tactics. And itís because weíre set up to not concede. We fail at that, but given how shit we look, it is surprising that we only tend to concede once or twice a game. Weíll go down by not getting thrashed. But there is no plan of how to get the ball from the back, to the front, in a way that creates chances.

All that said, it did look like a red. Foot up. Iím sure we get away with them too, but it did look obvious.

0-1HT

Simple to assess quality of the performance. No player gets above 4 for me. Trueman might get a 5 for one good save, but his kicking has been poor, looks flappy, am sure he was beaten by one that went wide and nearly niches up with Broadbent to concede a corner.

Really thinking of turning this shit off and doing something else.

Don't mind losing, but not competing is awful.

Shocking refereeing on the card allocation.  Pox lucky deflection a killer but they had players in the box and accordingly got the break.

May be safer to bring on Grant for Lyden in the second half.

Garrick and Broadbent my Mom's to date.

Conroy classy but playing older than Caddis

Well, that was as bad as the previous games, keeping our form going.

Lots of comments about caring and effort, not sure that is the issue.  We are so consistently like this that I put it down to the plan - we are set-up to look this shit.  The idea is clearly to try and avoid conceding too many by getting the ball away from our end as quickly as possible.  Makes good players look ropey as fuck - everyone else is busy working out where to move to and not paying attention to the man on the ball - why would you? he isn't supposed to pass it short.

Garrick may be running around a lot, but he is shit I'm afraid.

Same plan as before, hope a ball falls to Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman in the box or Twine outside the box.

Payne runs around looking busy without actually impacting the game.  Palmer looks lost in the role he has been asked to do and goes to shit with the ball as a result.  Defenders so focused on the need to clear it that they actually play the game too quickly and create mistakes.

Proper shit - the ONLY saving grace is that our pitch and ineptitude seems to pull teams down towards our level.  We are not being trounced as a result and stay in games.  Just relying on pure luck to win them though.

I'm not saying he wasn't.  He has bags of pace and that alone can create a threat - the problem is he doesn't know how to deliver.  Being better than the other 10 tonight does not make him a good 'footballer'.

It's the Johnny Smith thing again isn't it? Some people value pace and control of the football even if the final product isn't great, others can't get past the wasted chances.

Obviously if anyone at this level had both sets of skills they wouldn't be here for long.

No complaints from me. It's shocking stuff on a beach.

So far removed from nearly every other Swindon team ive ever watched which at least attempts to play football properly. Not this percentage trash.

I'm not even mad. We don't deserve anything so far.

This. Even the bad L Williams team tried to play football. We were weak and naive sure, but we tried to play the correct way.

Watching this is so much worse.

Sheridan has either returned our better players or made them more shit, Conroy a fraction of what he looked. Baudry frozen out. Thompson looked great game 1 with 3 assists and now? Even Palmer looked decent when he returned, now can barely play a pass.

I gave Flitcroft pelters for setting us up to play a bit like this - at least he brought in a bunch of cloggers who were suited to it.

Yes. This is a poor mans Flitcroft effort only the players either aren't suited to it, or dont know what they're supposed to be doing.

The conspiracy theorist in me also wonders if we've fucked our pitch up on purpose at Sheridan's request. Especially after seeing the excessive pre match watering.

- Lacked belief and confidence
- Missed the penalty
- Tried to keep going
- Up to him and Sheridan to prepare the players to go again
- Hard to give marks out of 10 after the game. Will look again tomorrow
- 10 goals conceded in first 15 mins: Wish I knew why. We keep telling them
- Fear and lack of confidence
- Told players they dont want this on their CV
- Strategy: Looked to get Garrick in the game more in the 2nd half
- But when we gave the second goal again......
- We are trying everything but concede at bad times
- Things are not getting better: We tell players what to do. We give them info and they don't take it in
- We are not distant from the players!
- Fear factor and back defensively and didnt pressure the ball
- Definitely not distanced from the players
- Confidence a massive thing. We need to stop giving goals away
- We'll keep working on it
- Lyden and Sykes? Lyden has 2 massive gashes. Had to make sub because couldnt stitch in time
- 2 Centre halfs off: They were both struggling.
- Curran scored and Odimayo had a bit of pace
- You cant keep people on if they are having a nightmare! They didn't play well!
- You cant cuddle them! They aren't children! They are professional footballers! They get paid! One is a captain and one is 6ft 5in! They aren't children!
- But you just said there is a confidence issue Tommy: If you dont play well you don't play or you get taken off!

- Looks like a public humiliation
- Replace 2 like for like players
- Wright obviously didn't like being asked about it
- Will have to see whether the reaction at the end of the game results in a change on Saturday
- From Wrights reaction, you'd think there might be a change at the weekend. But would you want that when you have a big CB that has been dominating in the last couple of games
- At Priestfield they had a big battering ram and Curran struggled against it.

Trueman 6
Bit flappy at times. Didnít have everything covered. Did make a couple of good saves though.

Caddis 5
Worked really hard, but was roasted all night! Quite why Odimayo wasnít brought on to replace him I have no idea. He tried hard, but was too slow. Much of our attacking went through him, but his delivery tonight was poor.

Conroy 4
Very slow. Made lots of mistakes. Distribution was poor

Broadbent 5
Looked better than he was as he made a few last ditch challenges. That was because he was out of position a lot of the time.

Thompson 5
Some good deliveries at the end. He also made one run in the game, which was reminiscent of his debut against Ipswich. But, I donít condone the yellow card in the first half. Could have been sent off then.

Payne 3
Not in the game

Lyden 4
Got stuck in but didnít break much up and didnít create anything. Thought he was unlucky to get booked. Looked daft with the head bandage.

Palmer 3
Didnít see him do anything

Twine 4
One free kick and one shot out of the ground. Defended OK. But, didnít get into the game

Pitman 5
Battled Ė but didnít win much. No decent service. Missed penalty, which imho was well saved rather than being a poor kick.

Garrick 5
Flattered to deceive. One trick pony. Athletic. Tried to turn and run. Didnt work at all. One chance in the first half, with a weak finish. Would have swapped him for the Oxford sub who showed with his first touch how to use power, pace and finishing.

Subs:
Grant 6.5
Actually controlled the ball. Tackled and passed the ball to our players! Won the penalty. Missed a lobbed chance from well out. The only midfielder we had on the pitch

Hope 4
Maybe I am being too hard on him, but he just doesnít seem to offer us anything.

Odimayo N/A
Canít rate him for 5 mins. But, he was visible. Won the ball and played it to our players!

Curran N/A
One clearance into row Z. Made a nuisance of himself and scored a goal. Feel bad for all of the stick he gets. He got on the pitch and did his best.

Payne:
- All devastated
- Gutted
- Desperate to win
- Relegation battle
- Derby and all that
- Gutted
- Conceded early. Need to stop doing this. Need to get early goals ourselves
- Tough game. Scrappy game. In the air a lot
- As a team we had enough opportunities to get something from the game
- The early ball nearly worked in the first half with Pitman and Payne nearly having chances
- Thing they have to improve is not to concede early
- Been better defensive recently
- Confidence is 'one of them'. When we had a couple of draws (when was that?) things felt better
- Go through things in training. When we cross the line it is up to us
- CB's off: Decision made and Curran comes on and scores a goal
- Desperate to win tonight. Have to react on Saturday and get 3 points
- Need to win games.
- With 12 games left, every game is massive
- Need to be positive and try to get 3 points

This is where im at. It IS laughable. Summed up by the lack of angry comments on here tonight i think. When you've got tiny central midfielders, and a poacher stranded, trying to play the unsuited role of a target man...i mean it's illogical and not even worth getting worked up about.

The players are being shoehorned into a style they've no chance of doing well in on a consistent basis.

At half time we'd won 35% of aeriel duels which to me says everything. I don't think Sheridan has made a single positive impact on the squad. We're not very good at anything but he persists with no hope football.

Like he's walked in and gone "everyones shit so we'd better just boot it up and pray for scraps". I'd say it's lazy management as much as anything, almost neglectful the way he sets us up every single week.

When we had the Leeds mob here with Prutton etc I hated that squad. This season i feel sorry for them.

Awful awful awful.

At the point where I wont pay ifollow anymore money to watch this shower of shit.

If Mr Power cannot afford a manager of any standing, then go and fucking get one from lower league football, there are a multitude of teams in leagues far below ours where the manager at least has a clue in how to set a team up, what shape to play to counter the opposition, when to make subs, when to praise, when to berate.

Coco & Ronald haven't a scooby doo and should not be allowed to manage anywhere again. Their performance as managers is shameful, and it resonates througout the squad.

They took off the centre backs when Caddis (who I love as a player), was having his worst game for STFC that I've ever seen. Couldn't tackle, pass or keep with his man.

Going to bed grumpy, sadly I don't think I will awake in the morning to news they've been sacked .

I don't deny they both had stinkers, though they did some things right

But it was the 87th minute. Did it take the management 87 minutes to see it? Did it fuck .  He knows what they did.

Now we'll have the Curran, Odimayo dream centre back pairing start on Saturday I reckon.

I'm not saying Broadbent and Conroy are undropable, But in my opinion dropping both is foolish

I thought Broadbent wasnít at his best, but not too bad. Not sure what Conroy offers and have thought this for a few weeks. As a centre back pairing, theyíre both too slow. Iíd like odimayo and Broadbent together, bit of pace and height together & I think theyíd work well

up until recently I thought Conroy was our most consistent centre back.

I'm beyond caring at this stage. Years ago I'd have been fuming for days. Now I'm sat here laughing to myself.
I thought I felt like that and like pretty much everyone else I just laughed when Curran scored. Summed up this shit show of a season in one perfect moment that did.

But despite that I am fuming. Two things really - first, Sykes getting away with the stamp on Lyden which was an absolute disgrace. And secondly, obviously, the needless vindictive spite of humiliating Broadbent and Conroy like that. Say what you like about how well/badly they played but if it was tactical then it should have been done earlier. To make the sub with four minutes left was just a deliberate humiliation of two decent honest professionals. Three words that cannot be applied to the wanker who did it. Absolutely ashamed of that. It demeans us as a club.

Having heard Sheridan's sideline musings against Portsmouth, the substitutions seem well within his character.  In a footballing sense, the bloke is intellectually devoid.

On Conroy, isn't he playing through another injury?

It was mentioned by others, I feel sorry for the players.  Conroy obviously fancies himself as a bit of a lower league Hoddle, nothing wrong with that when it comes off, but every time he receives the ball his instinct now is to lump it forwards quickly.  That is not his natural game, so it's being driven into them on the Training pitch.  Same goes for Caddis - his asset has always been a cracking cross and good touch going forward - he is also now just whipping it up the line as quick as possible.  Doing as told because we know what his natural game looks like.

That's the tell for me about the Management teams BS around players not doing what they have been asked to do.  Two players are showing that they have been told to play a certain way.  The fact it is not their natural game means they won't be as good at it.  Then you have a diminutive forward line and midfield being asked to chase after long balls played to nobody in particular.  Again, Palmer and Payne, for all their shortcomings, are tricky little players.  They are not the type of player you pop into central midfields made for cloggers.  The pair look utterly lost and bereft of confidence whenever they do get the ball in space now.

Garrick, who I give stick, is being asked to play back to goal - you can see it because we are not playing balls down the channels with the aim of a player running onto them, or slide rule passes behind the full back or creating space out wide.  If he offers anything it is certainly not holding a ball up and asking him to keep getting the ball under control from the sky, turn a defender and then outpace them is asking far too much.  Play to his strength.

Pitman's only real asset is in and around the box, yet we ask him to play as Duncan Ferguson.

What fucking hope have they all got.

I've no clue about tactics in general (but it seems you don't really need to be in this game at the moment) but given how much joy Garrick was getting on the right, would it be prudent to give 3 up top a go with Omotoye and Garrick wide and BP in the centre, at least at home. Get the line higher, let Conroy dictate play out of defence through midfield etc. I'm sure this probably leaves the side unbalanced but on our pudding of a pitch surely visiting defences hate pace so why not try and play to these strengths? We are having a pathetic amount of posession at home, that has to change.

As much as I want Sheridan gone, he isn't to blame for players not being able to control a football. It took them half hour to start doing that.
We have some pretty shitty players wearing the shirt to be frank. The biggest problem is definitely the strikers or lack of them. A one paced sloth up top on his own is a waste of time, especially if the ball isn't sticking to him when he actually touches it.
Oxford are a poor side too but their energy going forwards was the difference. Their keeper was dodgy and we could have exploited that by firing balls over top and crosses into the box but didn't really do that until it was too late. Garrick did ok but is a one trick pony who the pox wised up to. We had nothing else. Painful to watch overall.

As much as it is hugely disappointing losing to our local rivals, we have 4 or 5 "six pointers" coming up which are more important to win.

(Admittedly they might not be six pointers by the time we play them)

This is my coping mechanism and I will stand by it whole-heartedly.

If the fans were there he would of been gone by now for sure.

Because Sheridan sets out to not lose, rather than to win. If it were effective and we won loads of games 1-0 I wouldn't care, but it's not.

If we asked the current lot to try and start playing football again instead of hoofing it forward, I'm not convinced they'd be able to do it. At least with Sheridan in charge anyway.

Ref Conroy I think we have to remember he has returned from a very long layoff and you would expect 2 games a week will catch up with him, he's had no pre-season, as soon as he was 'fit' he was thrown straight in, no friendly games to work on fitness etc.

Sheridan does that with all players though coming back from injury, he throws them straight in as soon as they are fit 2 games a week.....

Having heard Sheridan's sideline musings against Portsmouth, the substitutions seem well within his character.  In a footballing sense, the bloke is intellectually devoid.

Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman's only real asset is in and around the box, yet we ask him to play as Duncan Ferguson.

Cracking post that.

We are set up all wrong. Starting with Pitman, he is done. Canít run so what does the dinosaur do sticks him up front, centrally.
Every team, the defenders simply walk out with the ball, no threat, no closure nothing.
Just a simple walk and then confronted by a light weight midfield that struggle to win the midfield battle.
Our defence get exposed because we donít defend as a unit, then the defence are screamed at to go direct and long.
Sheridan is a fucking disgrace the way he sets us up at home, we try and feed off scraps, knock downs and a threat from a Twine free kick. We offer absolutely nothing.

We just never press. So negative to try and set us up not to win a game but all the focus is on not to lose.
Itís bloody painful watching this shite week in and week out.

Spot on, no pre season and needs a minor op from the compensatory knee injury (not serious just a few weeks and painful). The constant player bullying is helping no one.
The style that Sheridan is adopting not helping either.

The impact of Grant a crumb of comfort a small taste of whatís been missing.
All a little too late.

And last nights cameo showed that he was wrong - does he have the balls to put him in from the start on Saturday?  I saw plenty of people writing Grant off and saying his legs were gone after playing pretty much every minute of the first half of the season, with a well reported injury and having no support alongside him as he had ball playing forward thinking midfielders in there with him.

Grant vs Palmer are chalk and cheese - yet a lot of people were clamouring for Grant to be dropped and Palmer to come straight in.  This is what we got and this is where we are.

Grant didn't look up to the mark, early season.  You could still see the quality (as we can with Caddis, Conroy etc) but it was a long way off what he had contibuted previously and, to an extent, a liability.

It was great to see him back to last season's form on last night's showing.  Simple and accurate passing, tackling and winning free kicks including the penalty.  Can he keep it up?  Will he even be selected again?

Further to this afternoon's media report in the Swindon Advertiser stating that ďSwindon Advertiser banned from asking questions at Swindon Town press conferencesĒ, we would like to confirm that this story is incorrect.

Despite not receiving any communication from the Swindon Advertiser, as a local media outlet, regarding any possible issue, we have taken it upon ourselves to make contact with the Editor to set out the Club's position.

We look forward to receiving a public apology from the Swindon Advertiser regarding this story in due course.

STFC (Shamefully Tinpot Football Club), led by Hustler in Chief and all-round Taskmaster "The Great Powerwash", approach another precipice of tinpotdom.

With Ronald McWright & Coco Sheridan seemingly being the main source of entertainment at the Circus Berzerkus, it now appears that upon Taylor Cu(rra)nt scoring last night - it has triggered a further contract extension, a bonus of £50k and he must now start every game. Performance related contract stipulation apparently.

The only questions that remain are who will be loading him into the cannon and how many white elephants are on show at the "Bog Tip" (that's the playing surface).

I just want to be able to be able to use the hashtag #GoodSheridance when this fucking prick finally departs.
