Itís a 30th Anniversary dinner for the Premier League season.
It has been organised & compared (sort of) by Phil King.
I found out about it through the OSC, who have two tables.

Just got back from it. Excellent evening, didnít realise Gorman had been very ill recently but made an incredible effort to be there. He spoke really well too. They were all in very good form especially Jan.

Such an enjoyable night however, now all I can think about is how incredibly far away from that we are, and what a horrific state this football club is in.

Only a few months after that season was the last time any real investment occurred in the infrastructure of the club.  Since then we've been relying on the vain hope of some sort of footballing miracle being dragged out of the Swamp of Sadness, when everyone knows you just get the bones of Artax.

I was there and the legends lounge was full, i think there were 300+ people there of all types of fans as well so it must have been talked about somewhere.

It was a very good evening honestly. Mildenhall was there and i did take note of him nodding vigorously when the old players were talking about criticism and giving each other abuse to motivate each other and how you can say boo to a player today without them getting upset!

Yeah there was a bit of chat about modern times, they were all very sad to see the state of the club today, Bodin gave a bit of a talk on how we are so tactically wrong and how we could improve. Listening to Lingy was interesting, he said how leaving after his 9 week spell as manager was the biggest regret of his career but he unfortunately had to do what he did, has since been successful with Orient being DoF from their rise up from non league, and in a non arrogant way said he was the exact type person Swindon need in that role.

Some great auction prizes including a framed signed shirt from time and signed posters etc, way out my price range though, think they raised around £8.5k for charity.

Donít think it was a closed shop as such, got my ticket though a friend but it was mostly the same people there as are at most of the events Phil King puts on.

Ha Ha I fooled them, I sneaked in 😂

Donít think it was being run by the club, so I guess itís not down to them to advertise. I assume Phil King booked the LL privately.

There was some discussion about the current state, Martin Ling did say that in his opinion the thing that was missing was an experienced DOF (did rule himself out as an option as it was too far from home).

They donít have the right contacts.

Was interesting to hear a few of them (Ling & Fjortoft in particular) being quite critical of McMahon.
