Clem has stressed previously that he wants to watch a team play 'good football' with a clear identity. Clearly that isn't happening currently. Clem presumably won't be enjoying what he is seeing. I would hope that behind the scenes discussions are being had as to potential replacements for Lindsey if performance/style of play don't improve. Swindon are pretty fortunate to be on 3 points. 10 games is long enough to make a judgement on this front.

Wasn't that early really - just a few days and 1 game.

Season starts have been getting earlier for years now.

For example the 89/90 season started on 19th August, which would effectively be this Saturday coming

It's difficult for Clem when he's already got the best man for the job!

I do think we have struggled this season due to the shorter pre season, yes I know all clubs are the same in thoery but teams with lower turnover of players and having the same manager that finished the season with will be at a huge advantage early in the season.

I think playoffs and the desire to have more Saturday games have brought the timetable forward. 
Obviously this year the corrupt twats have given us a winter world cup too

25th August 1973/74 season Swindon were at home to Sheffield Wednesday, no idea why the first game was so late.

The season started on 29 August (Home to Wimbledon) in 1981, which seems strange as there was a World Cup in Spain the following summer.

If SL gets the sack, maybe he can change his focus to a manager who can win.

No everything has to be about a brand these days and identity and 'trusting the process'

All a giant bag of talking shite, of course.

Well after Saturday's game we're more than 10% through the league season...and so far it's not good enough.  But, there has been some marginal improvements each (league) game and the squad isn't fully assembled as yet.

If you search #eflDebate on twitter Gab Sutton is interviewing Lindsey. I think it will be available on Spotify, etc.

Only watched a bit, generic stuff so far so don't know where its headed.


edit: not that if affects football results analysis - but he does come across as a nice guy and had a sad time in recent personal life.
