Were you sat in the top right corner booth? If that's you and your old man I've seen you in there before  Smiley
Does your dad have a passing resemblance to Des Lynam?

Yes, we were there Smiley I've not been in the Glue Pot loads of times, probably about 6-10 times. We used to go in the Grove and have food pre-match but this season we've sent the wives to the outlet village, and they've dropped us off near the GP so it's become our pre-game 'haunt'. As I get older the more I appreciate the beer.

Des Lynam!! haha. Yeah, I guess there is with the grey hair and the tache. Oddly I have never thought of that resemblance, but I think you are the second person that has mentioned it now. Smiley

Most amusing bit of the game was vaguely hearing some socialist class warfare eco twat calling the ref a Tory bastard, may have been wanker. Which one of you knobs was it?

Reflecting on the game largely agree with the posts BO is on the money, just enough to consider we ‘deserved’ to win but not enough to. I go back to my comments that I’m sure we’ll get the cheque book out in January. To fall short like last season when we have more resources this one will not sit well with the masses. Clearly we won’t bankrupt the club in doing so but, we do need to show the casual town fans we are serious. Those of us who a regular/ST attendees know there is but when someone turns up for important EOS games and glamour cup games (ok not many recently) they need something to bring them more often.

Failure to go up will bring out the ‘same old Swindon’ with the casual supporters. I got fed up defending the club ages ago against those who purport to go but don’t, those who don’t go but know everything about the club and those who wouldn’t go if we were in the PL.

Given how many crosses Hutton puts in, (apart from the goal against Hartlepool) I can't really think of many opportunities Jeff Cott has been presented with in the box, where reports are he does his best work. I think we are probably still working on how best to utilise him. If we can get him to be as good as Wakeling and Hutton have been this season, he'll be a real asset!

Not get all "FORRRRWAAAAARD!!" but Jephcott is far too good a finisher and our defense is far too shakey for us to piss about with it at the back as much as we do.

The thing about keeping the ball and playing it out from the back is that it can work if you move the ball quickly as it creates gaps that allow you to play through, our issue is that it tends to be too slow & deliberate which means the opposition can just drift across the pitch to cover.

It was noticeable early in the game that it took three or four passes to get the ball to Hutton, the goal came when Gladwin got the ball to him quickly

Its where the playing out from the back approach tends to fall down at this level. Defenders who are comfortable at playing out are as rare as rocking horse shit at this level and those who can do it quickly are not at this level as they get picked off by clubs higher up the pyramid.

The slow speed also allows teams to press us much harder without needing the speeds and fitness that teams playing a press at the higher level require. Whilst I would not like to encourage the 'get it forward' brigade, its something that's worth having in the pocket at an option at this level as it will keep the other side thinking and on their toes, its why Luke Williams's Town especially was so easy to nullify as teams knew we had one plan and nothing in the way of mixing it up, first for a while SL does seem to be able to think on the hoof.

Classic over coaching at this level.

we certainly didn't piss all over Stevenage. We could have played all day with the ball and not scored
