I agree the number 22 was possibly their best player overall, but the way he went about cheating all game was at times a disgrace and an embarressment to their embarressing club.

Both clubs will end up on a charge for failure to control the players I suspect.
Third time for us this season if it happens?

Had a feeling that Williams might have kicked off in order to try & distract the ref from the imminent 2nd yellow for Iandolo.

This is the one that made me chuckle:

"To see Swindon celebrating wildly for scraping a narrow win, shows me how far we've come."

Swindon, who are pushing for a play off place, after working under an embargo all season, after having all of their loan players called back in January and having to rebuild, and having numerous season ending injuries which means we are down to the bare bones of a squad?  Losing to us twice under those circumstance does indeed show how far you have come - not very.  We will see how far they have come at the end of next season, their cake walk manner of talking about League 1 will be great to watch next season.

Taking a long term view of their rise through the leagues and the amalgamation of two clubs? I think does indeed show how far they have come, over how many years? We’ve come just as far if not further in a fraction of that time this season by comparison as you rightly point out. What the poster is missing is that they are now an established league club playing at the same level as us and the other teams in L2. So like for like that poster is at best misguided and worst a tosser.

It's quite difficult being a Swindonian in Stroud today. A lot of vitriol despite my attempts to pretend that I support both teams ... https://sootallures.wixsite.com/topographersarms/post/supporting-both-teams-at-a-match

Marvelous work from the Poet Laureate of the People. Must be hard to explain all that to the vitriolic gumps.  Clap

Sensational evening of local football last night. Probably had pretty much everything you’d want from a game; big noisy crowd, committed performances from both sides, goals, controversy, panto villains, squeaky bum time and a crucial home win. Only thing lacking was some decent away support. Pathetic for a team less than an hour away and in the driving seat for the championship.

Disagree with his sentiment or not, McKirdy’s comments gave everyone a fucking massive kick up the arse for the better. Both players and fans may well be reflecting on why we didn’t pull it all together like that a few games earlier.

Everyone that stepped on the pitch last night deserves credit for their role. Baudry was sensational, in fact everyone who helped out in defence was superb ( and I include Davison in that, going full Luke Norris and looking more effective defending our goal than attacking theirs), only blights being Iandolo’s two yellows and Williams deciding to turn into traffic than steer away from it with time and space on his side for their goal.

Payne was heroic though. What a lad.

If we can find the legs to go again like that on Saturday, who knows what can happen.

That was a well earned and deserved win. A really strong first half performance (although we could have gone behind early - the header against the crossbar and an important block by Baudry kept it at 0-0). Two good goals - no suspicion of offside.
I thought Iandolo’s challenge was rash considering he had got a yellow first half - but undoubtedly their players persuaded the ref to give the 2nd yellow.
While it was a bit desperate at times after that, apart from the goal I only remember one save from Ward - generally we kept them at bay through hard work and desperate defending.
The ref was poor - gave us nothing after the sending off.
I am not  keen on the crowd playing keep ball - it may have achieved the objective of breaking up play /  slowing their momentum, but that shouldn’t be our role - it shows a lack of class frankly. However it worked to some extent in that the ref only played about 1 minute 50 seconds beyond the 7 put up on the board, whereas the three bouts of crowd keep ball wasted probably 3 mins.
The one thing we can say - and to be fair it’s been true all season - is that while we we may not have won as many as we would like at home, we have never had any cause to complain about the players’  effort and commitment.
