Also if we lose to Fleetwood on Saturday then that will be our worst run of consecutive league defeats since October 2005. Coincidentally when we were sat at tthe bottom of this division a season we were relegated in.

It's quite surprising that Beamish done OK compared to the clown now in charge

In short, John is officially the worst manager in the club's history.

I'd be interested to know which manager has the lowest win percentage in football league history. He'd probably be top of that list too!

This has to close 2007/2008 - Jewell failed to turn things around for Derby and the club spent most of the season at the foot of the table, recording a club and top-flight record run of 32 league games without a win.

20% win percentage and 53% loss ratio during his 58 game spell there. So Sheridan is a fair bit worse overall when it comes to defeats.

Seeing as you’re in stats mode, we have 22 defeats so far. What’s the highest number we’ve ever had in a season?


Title: Re: Just how bad a manager in Swindons 142 year history is John Sheridan?

Love to know the highest home defeats in a season although not all down to Sheriden

We lost 26 in our final second tier season (99/00).

Can't imagine there will be more than that.

So just to confirm, we're on the verge of our worst season ever, with our worst manager ever in charge and an owner who couldn't care less. Joy.

142 years, and we are the chosen ones. We will always be able to say we were there.

Of course, things can always get worse.

Did Morrissey ever say that?

Christ if the current managers record is deemed acceptable by Lee Power,maybe Cooper,Williams and Phil Brown have a good case to go after him for unfair dismissal 😉

Hey, I was at Lethbridge Road Primary in 1970. Maybe we were classmates!

I was at school with lots of kids that started school at Lethbridge in 1971, they all went to Drove School and Euclid Street along with me.

Grim reading this.

Trying to come to terms with how I am feeling with all STFC right now.
I think becoming older has made this worse as I crave for better times, made even worse because last season I absolutely loved every minute of it.

I have gone from hope, downbeat, sad and depressed.
Now I have simply come to a method of just letting it go. The fact that I don’t have to make a choice to go to the games maybe a blessing but equally being at the games I could at least voice my concerns.

We have to sit back and let this bottom out and it will. The sooner the better and only knows where the base point will end up being.
What a mess.

I might be a year or two ahead of you - I left in 1970. Only names I remember from my class were John Beard - from a local family building firm - and Karl von Buren, which sounds terribly exotic for the era - I wonder what his parents' story was? Looking him up now, it seems he went on to Commonweal and eventually became Head of global Equity at HSBC. Blimey. :eek:

Yeah I left school in 82 aged 16, you were a similar age to my sister who left school in 79 so she may well know them.

I wasn't even born in 1970.

Thanks for the stats, Venks.

A badge of misery to have lived through the worst manager ever epoch.  Let's hope a couple of immaterial, fluke wins don't spoil the stat.  That would make me miserable.

As has been observed, only JS and Power still hanging around stinking the place out next season could be worse.

Seems apt for someone whose name seems to have slipped my mind

‘Sweetness, sweetness I was only joking
When I said I'd like to smash every tooth
In your head
Sweetness, sweetness I was only joking
When I said by rights you should be
Bludgeoned in your bed’

I may be older than most.

However, we have all suffered enough trauma to have understandably needed to blank out certain episodes of STFC history from our memory banks.

In my case, I have zero recollection of Kevin Amankwah's friend ever having managed Swindon.  Sounds like it was pretty awful.  But not THIS bad.
