COVID asides, the fans will come if there's decent football on offer.

Or successful football, they don't always go hand in hand, ask Dan Cowley.

I stopped going under McMahon after he and Rikki Kunt told a season ticket holder of 20+ years on the radio that he was the type of fan they didn’t want because he dared to question the tactics.

I went back to the first game after McMahon left, but this coincided with our son being born so couldn’t go much.

We then left Wiltshire & moved up to Peterborough for work, but managed to get back to half a dozen games a season.

When Fitton & co introduced cheap season tickets we decided to get them, and have had them ever since.
Wasn’t planning on renewing them for next season, if we were going to be charged full price after not getting to see any football last season.

If Clem takes over I will probably renew, especially if there’s any allowance made for no live football last season

season ticket money ready waiting.

willing to forfeit last season's too, luckily I'm in a position to do that at the moment, accept not everyone is

Same here Batch.
Missing the away games and once Power free it will feel the shackles are off after this recent shit show.

Hope this galvanises the fanbase at the same time.
As for Clem he is not Power and time will only tell.

Although I mistrusted Power's aim to make money from the beginning, I stayed until Luke Warms incredible managership. Sat in the Don Rogers and laughing at the goalies distribution, their inability to take a throw in, it was then that I realised I'd lost the passion
After that, the odd away game that really took off under Flitcroft. It's fare to say that I've lost the habit of visiting the County Ground,  an uninterrupted habit since 1969.
Modern football lacks excitement. I may return for Rovers and if the Town do half a job, if they look like they train together, if they look like they care, i might take it match by match.

Swindon fans are as delightfully fickle as all other football fans. Clem will have no bearing on crowds (except for those who would've boycotted if Power was still in charge). If we win, the fans will come. I anticipate next season to be a struggle and the crowds will reflect that.

There will always be an excuse for some to not come. I'll be there regardless.

If you could attend but have to make excuses as to why you don't/won't attend then you aren't really a "fan" anymore.

I've been absent for 3 seasons. Got fucked off with the totally with the totally avoidable Williams relegation and the Sherwood dof fiasco. Still went following season but wasn't enjoying it. Mccomick was the final straw for me.
Went to supermarine and started actually enjoying and  looking forward to games. Got a season ticket there this season, £100 as I'm now 60. I'm not sure if I'll go and see town again. I may do. It will have nothing to do with whether we're doing well or not.
I'm not convinced with Clem. The only thing I see he's got going for him is that he's not power. He's not an established cunt, he is a potential one but hopefully not.

That's a shame for STFC, but glad you have your football mojo back - even if it is down the road.

Clem - we can only wait and see if he can walk the walk after talking the talk.
"Once bitten twice as shy" as the saying goes, though with STFC owners we seem to mostly have attracted a shoal of piranhas

I'm still intrigued what's in it for Clem as there's no money to be made here

Given his trade, stadium development I would guess

Once released, I am sure I will be getting an ST. I would miss the anticipation/ apprehension westbound on the M4 and the joy/ despair eastbound on the M4 if I didn't go to games.
