Support is earned not a given, especially if you already donít see him as the right person for the job. Thereís been very little to support, his reign started off shambolic and very little has improved to date.

Tomorrow needs to see a significant improvement, if there isnít after heís had a week on the training ground to get his ideas across then itís not a great sign.
This is what the bloke is up against. What a weird way to look at it, how are you even going to Swindon Town matches with that thought process?

If support was earned the County Ground would be a wasteland!

In the words of "Porridge".

Harry Grout: "Now we need someone reliable as trainer."

Fletcher: Don't look at me. I've grown disenchanted with the game. Forty years of supporting Swindon does that for a man.

I think support for the club is a very different beast than support for those individuals who pass through the club from time to time.  The former is, as DV points out, like a drug addiction.  The latter is far more reasoned, mostly.

I don't see it turning toxic if we lose this, but it wouldn't be too much longer.  I think there still remains quite a bit of goodwill and wanting for things to be good.  Also, while Lindsey may not have been a name, he also wasn't known, so people will give those types a bit longer to prove themselves.

People remembering their first games is always an interesting one for me, as I've no idea. I had even always wrongly assumed Reading at Elm Park was my first away game before being told I was taken to Fratton Park very young before that.

Things could turn quite toxic with a loss. True or false?

If things continue the way they are results wise, our crowds could become similar to that of the power era. Just my opinion. No need to be upset.

Crowds under Power were not in the 5-6k range on average, go have to go back to the shitty days of Diamandis for sub 6k crowds on average.

I'd love for you to be right, but whilst the goodwill for SL might not necessarily be personal, the fact that he is perceived as the cheapo option really does work against him and if he doesn't hit the ground running - which he hasn't - then a malaise sets in very quickly. There were already chants of Lindsey out at Gillingham, they will grow louder I reckon if we don't win tomorrow, or at least show a relatively good performance a la signs we are moving in the right direction.

Whatís weird about it? I support the STFC not an individual, we are in L2 FFS there should be a minimum expectation on the shoulders of a manager and so far Lindsey hasnít met that for me. Iím not going to blindly support someone who I believe so far has done a poor job.

Also, I donít think its weird to expect a massive improvement after heís had over a week on the training ground to get his way of playing drilled into the players. If this uninterrupted time on the training ground doesnít allow him to show a significant improvement then what actually will?

I'm thinking maybe the Queen/Saturdays postponement has given some breathing space

sounds silly, but people have had other things to talk about. life hasn't been normal really

temporary I'm sure.

I find it weird that by your logic you refuse to support a coach until he has proved himself to you. I find that weird

Now I find that weird.  I never liked King and hated Sheridan.  I can't imagine supporting either, but STFC is completely different, no matter how badly they treat me.

I wasn't on about the club though, i find it crazy that someone will not want to support the manager when we appoint one. I understand a manager losing the support of fans but to not even ever have it is weird

Because I didnít think he is the right person to start with and so far heís just reinforced my view that heís not up to it. How can you support someone if you donít believe in them, itís just fake.
