Iíve gone completely knee jerk the other way.

Iím worried about the length of the contracts. We need to get these boys signed up for longerÖ

He will have a new contract soon. Never worth a 2-year deal based on what we knew

From what i have been told and don't shoot the messenger is that SL has a say but does get presented with a pool of players selected for him, if the club offered him 4 rbs though and he did not want one then they wouldn't sign them. Shade and Harries were both Garner signings  
They would say that though to be fair.  Not me guv, the last guy was shite

Evidently Grimsby were chasing him and pulled out as they thought he was not strong enough.
Need to extend his terms.

Loved it today as Grimsby were starting to turn the screw against our 10.
Wakeling broke away on his own his shot turned over for a corner.
He gave the clenched fist to the Swindon fans who responded.

Looked really effective in a 3. That was such a positive takeaway today.
The Haddock and Chips mind the best bar none 😂

Can't see why they would lie tbh. Makes sense too, Shade knew he was coming here before the end of the season and Harries was signed by Garner at Rovers

So it's been 10 games and I think now is a decent time to judge.
Aside from a couple of blips the team is improving week on week and it's clear to see a great team spirit evolving.

9 league games undefeated is not to be sniffed at. Players are looking more comfortable and a definite style is taking shape.

Well done Scott on basically gelling a team from scratch. Here's to a great season ahead

I'm very much in the same boat/camp as you Mex. I won't pretend that the first few games this season weren't a particularly good watch but with every match there were signs of us moving in the right direction and at Donny (yes they were pants but I think we got it spot on that day) I thought we put together a really cohesive and solid 90 minutes. We've built on that with a very good win at Grimsby and really only look like going one way up the league. The squad and manager now look hungry to get out of this division, fair play to them.

October is a great barometer of where we can get to this season. We have (on paper) tough matches against Northampton, Bradford and Mansfield, an i've no idea what to expect really at Stevenage and what you might call gimmes at home to Newport, Colchester and Hartlepool.

Got to say Gillingham tested my 'wait a bit longer before judging' resolve.

3 wins in a row, 1 league loss. brilliant (though Sutton wasn't as convincing as other 2).

big test coming up from Northampton. obviously. But it is just one game and we have more to come I'm sure. We'll have to see if legs can cope with 2 games in a week (Gladders). is Williams back, he should be fresh

It did me until the Monday after I watched the extended highlights and we actually created far more chances that it seemed while watching it, we came up against a keeper playing the best game of his life and hit the post etc....

If even 1 of those chances had gone in then it would entirely have changed how bad it felt at the time.

We had 23 shots that day and 4 were on target, we hit the post, the Williams miss from 6 yards, the FBT header saved so well by the keeper, the 2 excellent saves by the keeper from Shades long rage efforts, the flick by Jephcott from 3 yards that could have gone anywhere but went over the bar.

It was just at the time it seemed like we created very little but that blatantly wasn't the case looking back at it.

That's not really 'news'. Both he and Sandro said that at the beginning of the season.
