Title: Donny v Swindon 2-9-23 Matchday Thread
Post by: Audrey on Tuesday, August 29, 2023, 10:56:48
I’m off to my first away game since Taylor scored that rocket at Wycombe!

At first glance it looks like an easy 3 points, but Donny apparently played very well v Franchise Saturday. The table is yet to settle down so nothing taken for granted here.

Maybe a benefit to us that they’ve got a Caribou cup game v Everton tomorrow - so not much recovery time before Saturday.

Anyway, piece of piss 1-4.

We're scoring goals for fun, they're shipping them at quite a rate and are bottom.

We're doomed.

Will be the first game of the season for me and a new ground to tick off. Off the back of some high scoring games we will probably lose this one. Head says 3-1 loss, heart says 4-0 win.

5 league games with 4 ending in defeats and 1 draw scoring just 4 and conceding 12 goals.

They made 12 new signings in the Summer. Their top scorer is george Miller on 2.

Results so far...

Doncaster 0-1 Harrogate
Hull 1-2 Doncaster *LC
Newport 4-0 Doncaster
Doncaster 2-2 Mansfield
Doncaster 1-3 Notts County
MKD 2-1 Doncaster

McCann favours a possession based style of football and a 442/433 formation, although on Saturday they went with a 532 at MKD.

They average 12 shots on goal every game so far but only 5 on average on target.
We average 16 shots per game and 7 on target.

Big game for them tomorrow at home to Everton in the LC hopefully being only 4 days from Saturday it will affect their early season fitness and they will still be fatigued going into the game on Saturday.

They have started poorly but according to their forum they played much better vs MKD at the weekend where they had more possession and had twice the shots of MKD with 6 being on target vs 5 for MKD who still beat them 2-1.

On paper it looks a foregone conclusion, we have scored 19 goals and conceded 12 in our 6 games, Donny have scored 6 and conceded 13. They havent won in the league and we havent lost so far. But football isnt like that, it will always come and bite yer bum when you least expect it.

We have only beaten Doncaster 6 times in our previous 28 meetings, losing 12 times and drawing 10, socring 27 and conceding 26 goals.

In games up on the South Yorkshire town we have won just twice and lost 7 drawing 5 times with Town scoring 10 and conceding 19.

That said we won there last season thanks for a Wakeling goal and have only 1 defeat in the last 4 games up there.

Still too early to guess a score for me.

Att: 6,550 (725 Swindon)

Donny have played some good teams so far by the looks of it so I'm expecting a tough game despite their poor start.

xG for = donny on 1.13 v ours on 1.95
xG against = donny on 1.59 v ours on 1.68.

2-2 (Austin and Kemp) .

Watched that last night....tough watch for Everton fans as the Toffees were awful first half, improved second and Beto looks a good signing.

But we aint playing Everton Saturday!....

Donny will come at us like a train from the off on Saturday and we will need to weather that and get into the game. They got into a few good positions last night and didnt engage. Lets hope that continues.

Pre match ultra low abstinence zone in The Red Lion.

Mick Lynch. Up yours.

What a glorious morning in Doncaster, the Gateway to Grimsby.
Just waiting for some apprentices to show up.
08:05 train out of Kings Cross? Not a bit of it.
Millennials eh, just can't get the staff.

The lack of incomings yesterday shouldn't detract from matters on the pitch today.
The table can tell porkies at this early stage of the season, so a bit wary of the law of averages, but then again we are short on league wins against the Oss Breeders.

Hopefully the eye catching start to the season can continue, have thoroughly enjoyed the first month.

Fourth visit here & first one on a Saturday.
Late Obika goals were good fun, the turgid display in 2013 less so.

For those arriving early, the South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum not far from the ground might be worth a visit.
They have a Vulcan apparently.
As the great man once said "superior ability breeds superior ambition".
Hopefully our ambitions for the season are able to live long and prosper.

Donny airport has Vulcan  xh558, the last vulcan to fly (2015) -  but I don't think she is on permanent display. I think only accessible certain days. The VTTS Trust really fucked up. please check.

if you ever going towards Coventry  on a weekend I recommended a quick stop to see xm655. you can get a cockpit for for a small donation ,(arrange in advance to be sure)

I think that Doncaster Airport ceasing operations has shafted the Vulcan for now. Not the best spot for XH558 sadly.

Not sure about today. Feels like the first goal is important. If we are behind then I can see us getting caught repeatedly on the counter, could get messy. Take the lead, then I back us to be able to outscore them for the rest of the game on current form.

Also if we score more than 3 again, I am going to be convinced that Mad Gav is secretly running the first team.

indeed, though not yet clear what is going on as they are talking about keeping her there long term.

massive issue if that falls through. how the bloody hell do you move it without chopping it to

BTTS
6 yellows combined
Maybe a dodgy red...for FBT
7mins added first half
12mins added in the second half

Kemp will score one of those superior deflected type shots that loops into the top corner. Maybe a lucky winner too. Raptures


Feels like Flynn might also have been duped/hand tied behind his back. Will definitely have patience with him. It's the board that is somewhat the issue, not the squad/management - I feel, is all


Still papering over many many threadbare squad and off-field cracks

By the end of this season, we might all be addicted to crack to forget the pain of supporting STFC. A win - like a drug/vice will only give temporary relief. For all the talk of sustainability the words do not really match the actions.

Competitive budget? My follicly populated jacksy is it  :pint:

Well, Doncaster look pretty good, they'll not be troubling the bottom of the table. We've looked dangerous on the counter, Uwakwe has put in a couple of crosses so for a change we're dangerous down both wings.

The referee is the story though. Not sure there was much wrong with the red - feel for Rowe but those are reds more often that not - but he's looked very erratic and booked players for so little that the game was always going to go this way.

I note the Donny forum has a rate the ref thread which I'd imagine may get a little fruity.

Sums up how diabolical we usually are against ten men, that I’m just glad we didn’t lose. There has to be a different plan when we play against ten, as that was similar to Lindsey’s plans against ten men. Unbeaten is a positive, but can’t help feeling we should have more than the 9 points

Absolutely agree, so often we have players that look world beaters 1 week and then cant kick a ball straight for the next 2 games.

If they had consostancy though they would be playing at a much higher level I guess.

That's the thing with League Two - very rarely do you have a team that just outclasses everyone with pure talent.  You tend to find some squads with a real depth of similar talent who can just keep grinding through with results on a consistent basis as a result.  IT's what makes our inability to add those three or four we are missing all the more irritating - if we had 14 to 15 that could easily rotate without any change in the first XI's ability, then we'd be right up there all season.

It's quite nice to say you've got international players in your team but you don't really want it at this level. We've seen over the years that it's extremely disruptive and detrimental to the team ultimately...

Nice to be home by 6:30, weather was good, had lunch & a few drinks in the Beefeater, a clean sheet.

That’s the positives out of the way.

Not very often that you leave a game & both sets of fans can agree that the ref was shite.

Have been there three times now, a win, a draw & a defeat in three pretty terrible games

I’d forgotten how tedious it is returning from a long-ish away game - even worse after witnessing that game. Don’t think their keeper had a shot to save and the less said about the ref the better - where do they drag them up from.

Austin is right out of form, Kemp poor today, RHM lively when he came on - should have been sooner. Another good game from Brewitt - a non nonsense defensive display.

Still remain unbeaten.

Do you think still Austin contributes to the team though? I do as he's got a bit more physical  presence, talks and brings in others but making space. But I can see how you might not agree.

I often have different views watching on ifollow than at the match, and vice versa. Today was an ifollow day and for me:

- RHM was hopeless. Couldn't do anything right other than run. Thought shade was better. RHM is coming back from injury so to be expected.

- there was a 15 minute spell in the second half where Brewett inexplicably turned into Taylor Curran. Then he regained composure thankfully.

But I accept you only have limited vision on ifollow.

oh, and I think we had 12 corners and only 2 shots on target, they had 3. Tells the story!

Today was my first game since Crawley at home last game of last season. A quick google search said that was something in the region of 120 days which is enough for me to get an inexplicable Swindon withdrawal. Initially was going to go up with Wobbly Bob and had to agree to an early train with him only for him to change his plans when rail strikes were announced. Fair enough. I got in at a respectable time and we had a few in the Draughtsman before going to the stadium. Good to go to a new ground. As for the match I think it was poor. Some credit has to go to Doncaster who limited us to what I assume is our lowest number of shots in a game this season. You wouldn’t have known we had a man advantage in the second half. Austin looked knackered and we joked that my friend with dyed blonde hair looked like a hungover Austin but he may have been better than Chaz today. I feel that FBT should be captain so Chaz can concentrate on scoring. Charlie looked very tired today but the heat almost certainly contributed. A mate of mine was burning in front of my eyes.

Thought he summed up the game excellently. A combination of Doncaster playing well with 10, us playing into their hands and the ref giving us nothing 2nd half meant a frustrating afternoon. Still, unbeaten, a clean sheet away from home and no new injuries - it’s not a bad an afternoon as some have made out (mostly on Twitter)

First half one was Khan, but it did look like Austin. Ref had a habit of flourishing his yellow in the direction of a group of players and it not being at all clear who was being booked - sometimes from which team!

The 2nd one was, can't remember the first one but may well have been as Austin was involved.
By that I mean Charlie does seem to get caught offside a lot in the box these days.
It's something that does need to be worked on & an experienced striker should be able to sort himself out in those situations.

Having slept on it its definately 2 points dropped.

We were playing the bottom team without a win and only 1 draw so far and they were down to 10 men for an entire half yet we couldnt break them down.

Last week everything we hit basically went in, yesterday not sure if we actually made their keeper make one proper save all game.

No idea why Flynn took off Uwakwe who was our only player at the time getting consistant crosses into the box, we starting pressing down their left with him on and spreading the play more, when RHM came on we put everything down the right again yet there was acres of space on the left where Young was ploughing a lone furrow.

Brewitt started well but 2nd half was a liability at times, its likely he will be the last player back most of the time buthe was exposed a lot yesterday and against a better team we could easily have lost that.

Austin for me was very poor all game, didnt dictate play or bring others into the game and missed a couple of decent chances too.

Doncaster were a mid table side who passed well at times if very sideways in their passing, they reminded me of us last season under Lindsey, pass, pass, pass but without one pass being into the danger zone taking any risks.

RHM looked lively when he came on but he should have come on for Austin for me not Uwakwe, and Shade came on ran around and I dont think kicked the ball more than once.

Still unbeaten in 90 mins in our first 7 games is something to build upon.

On to a home game with Sutton next week who have not had a good start to the season with 1 win and 5 defeats so far....interesting prospect.

Oh and a special mention to the ref, cant say hes the worst I have seen but fucking hell he was shit.

Sutton - 1 win (and that was against 10 men) in their last 17 league games and only 4 draws.
No clean sheets in the last 14 league games for them.
