Fanbases are completely different, as are the potential. They averaged about 7k their second tier run and about 4k this season.

Clubs fans always think they're bigger than they are, but a lot of our fans have the opposite problem. Jesus our average attendance is over twice theirs.

I get why though. It stems from absolute depression of having fuck all to shout about.

Am I the only one that is wondering where this Duncan Ferguson shit is coming from? The bloke was a lunatic as a player and has been retired the best part of two decades and done bugger all.

Has baffled me.

He has been coaching at Everton for the last 8 years. Working his way up to assistant manager and has taken charge or Everton on two occasions (and improved performances)

He left Everton in the summer to go into management (according to the media articles) and as of typing this - has not found gainful employment.

Öand we are looking for a manager? So why is it such a baffling suggestion?

Sure, he was a bit unhinged but was also always gave maximum effort, wasnít afraid of hard work and putting it about it & he has passion. Exactly what this team is lacking.

Iíve said many times. I donít know what Fergusonís expectations are with regards to finding a job. What he personally is holding out for wages wise / league wise

ÖbutÖsurely an unemployed former assistant manager who is looking to get into management isnít such a shit suggestion?

The problem for me is that all his experience of late is with Everton. Although a less than average PL on the pitch their wealth and financial situation is still a million miles from L2. Would love to see someone like Pep or Klopp spend a season here and work with the tools provided and a budget of 50p and a bag of grapes.

Swindon itself is surrounded by other towns of notable size that donít have league clubs and therefore have floating fans. We donít get so many fans from Newbury these days as they would more likely travel to Reading. Likewise floating fans in Chippenham more than likely go to Bristol City. On a personal note one of my friends who was a regular for most games at The County Ground with his wife all through the 90ís and early 2000ís ended up becoming season ticket holders at Southampton when they moved from The Dell. It works both ways of course, our single year in The Premier League had a detrimental effect on attendance at Bristol City.

You would be surprised how many fans regularly make the pilgrimage from Chippenham and Bath. They wouldnít touch Bristol with a barge poll.

Surely Ferguson will be back in charge at Everton soon!

Itís a fair point no doubt.
Personally think putting in maximum effort and playing for the shirt are skills that are transferable to lower league players.

Iíd rather watch some bloody & guts football than pointless possession passing to be honest.

As things stand after todays games we are 8th. A lot of teams are now on the same number of games played as us. So our position should be quite attractive to any prospective Manager bearing in mind we canít score in a brothel!

Outside the POs on goal difference. Bradford still have 2 games in hand. Cobblers losing still gives a faint chance of getting 3rd. POs should be easily achievable with a new man and a few new players - and a mighty change of emphasis.

It's set up nicely if Clem & Sandro make the right choices.

I didn't realise he'd been at Everton that whole time. Fair enough.

He was still an absolute lunatic in his youth still. He'd probably end up in a punch up with our fans.

The number of managers they go through Everton go through he is probably worked with more experience than anyone else.

On a serious note i think we have a real opportunity in place to put the foundations in for something good here. I would be looking at getting players like Austin and Gladwin involved and taking their coaching badges under a manager with some coaching or manager experience
