Usual way out was cordoned off, found a bus stop by accident but had to wait over an hour as it was next to where some Town fans had been corralled prior to being marched off to Parkway. Police described it as "controlling the situation". Indeed.
Couple of scheduled buses turned off before the hold up.
All good fun.

Looking at their forum, interesting to see the terms basket case & shambles being used and it's not aimed at us for a change.
Also the trusty "I'm not going again until <insert name> has gone."

Cheers Bob, Was there any trouble outside as I noticed the home fans were held back which they weren't happy about and fair play to the fans that walked to and from parkway station as that is also a fair way unless they laid busses on.

All the Swindon fans were let out together straight after the game. Plenty of singing and Rovers fans were behind the Police lines.
Main road was cordoned off and we turned right up the hill where the car was parked. Walking straight towards a few Rovers walking down but all decent types.
They did look miserable though.
Prefer the Gas everyday to the Shit Heads, far more grounded and less deluded than the Shit Heads.
Felt edgy but without threatening. Just how derby games should be and always enjoy playing Rovers away.

Garner likes a patient build up, we move the ball left to right, right to left trying to find pockets in the midfield areas, every now and again Dion Hoddle will try and find a wide space.
Pitman as lone striker was completely isolated and was his typical shit self. Our style and fitness levels exploited their mature team yesterday. Said at halftime confident we would win it, if we could get a goal.

The style is far more effective and pleasing on the eye away from home as we are given more room to play in. The players have been recruited to fit the style. If we could take the lead at home early first half I believe it would open up the game a little more.
Still believe we are getting better however a goalscorer would be a much needed addition in January.

Expectations- Right now way exceeding.

We left the escort and walked down a few streets to order a taxi, still took 40 mins to arrive. When the town fans caught up with us we were chanted at thinking we were rovers fans despite our best efforts to explain we were Swindon 😂😂 Brilliant day out, enjoyed the Knights Templar before the game. Didnít even notice the rain towards the end, brilliant. Up the Town.

The mem isn't the best to get to unless you drive or coach and surprised they don't lay buses on for away fans to at least Parkway which is slighly nearer than temple meads

I do love the way that this season the players truly look happy about scoring and always go straight over to the fans to celebrate with them, a fan/player unity.

He's looked best off the bench for me. Deliberately or not, we seem to tire others teams out in the first 60 or so and then beat them (hopefully) in the last third with a change of tempo from McKirdy, Williams etc.

He's looked decent but hasn't influenced the game much...
